In the Boxing main event, Undefeated Rising Star Kenzie “Son of a Gunn” Morrison (14-0-2) went against seasoned veteran Galen Brown (44-40-1). This was Morrison’s 16th fight in his pro career and his first fight in the city where his father lived. Kenzie’s father Tommy Morrison starred as Tommy Gunn in “Rocky V” he finished his boxing career with a record of 48-3-1 and passed away in September 2013 at the age of 44. The trunks Kenzie wore was a tribute to his father, the front of the trunks read Kenzie and the back RIP Dad.
“It’s just a tribute to my dad,” “I always like to carry a little bit of him with me. I’m basically trying to fulfill the legacy that he left me.”
This fight was a huge test for Kenzie becuase Brown is his most experienced opponent so far. In the first round, Morrison caught Brown with a right hand to the body early in the round. Kenzie took control of the fight and after a flurry of lefts and rights Kenzie connected with a beautiful left uppercut that sent Brown to the canvas. All this action lasted 40 seconds in the first round and the ref saw enough and waived the fight which was the same time the corner threw in the towel. Kenzie earned a first-round technical knockout.
