All this at the age of 25... as long as were LOLing, let's LOL at that. Because while I agree with having Duffee on your list, his recent fall is not much different than Dunham's.

Dunham was hyped as the next big thing, and while he may be yet, he's certainly not that now having been stomped by Melvin like he was, and I believe that was the point of this thread. LOL indeed.
Duffee was over hyped and the next world beater after 8 sec KO and Dunham wasnt even any where near that level of hype hell if anything he was under hyped so including him on the list after being robbed and beaten by a number one contender is silly , considering Duffee wasnt robbed he was KO'ed badly twice and holds no wins against good opponents, Being KO'ed isnt unlucky its your fault bad judging is unlucky , if the judges werent harsh you wouldnt have him on your own list.

LOL indeed...............
