New, 6 comments

From the UG:

It was on the temple I felt the just shut down the cns system couldnt use my arms to catch my fall or anything i was watching everything till my head hit the canvas(which may have put me out)i blinked and he hit me with a hammer fist....the way i fell made it look much worse than it was...I wasn't gassed i was more frustrated and trying to stick to the game plan should of threw that out after the first 30 seconds game plan was horrible......i wasn't snapping punches instead i was muscling them shoudl of kicked should of grappled should of fought....I'll be back and show I am more than capable of wrestling etc

thanks for the support and thanks to the people who helped me out sorry i let you down it will pay off in the long run

As I said in my commentary after the event, Duffee lost dramatically but he certainly showed a lot of good things before he got knocked out.  It's clear the kid is big, powerful, and agile with some striking ability.  However, he was  bit repetitive with the same combo he was throwing.  He was pretty active for a large heavyweight for the first two rounds, so although he was tiring I think he has pretty good cardio.  The interesting thing will be how he comes back from a loss like that.  I think he'll be fine because he clearly was dominating a veteran in Russow, so he should be able to build on that and go from there.
