I don't stick my chin up until I'm back in my corner, sitting down. :boxing:

You need good boxing posture to throw good punches. If keeping your chin down improves your posture then do it. And it's not a bad way of reducing the chances of getting knocked out. Most knockouts come from a hit to the chin.
