I got hit the other day while sparring a aggressive southpaw in my 3rd round right on the button 3 times when i got home my chin where i got hit was sorta saw does that mean i cant take alot of punishment? i didnt have a chin strap so my chin wasnt covered i was using open face head gear.

There is really only one way to find out. My jaw is normally sore for a couple days if it's a good shot, but I have never touched canvas (yet... knock on wood).

It's not so much your actual chin, but more about how you react to being punched. When you got nailed did you feel dizzy, weak knee'd and off balance?

nah it was a left straight i got hit with and it was only sore for 1 day or 2 i was a little of balance cause hes a southpaw and he was causing me trouble from the get go i busted him up 2nd round but 3rd he got the better of it.
I didnt barely feel anything when i got hit but it was sore afterwards it didnt affect me when i got hit.

Yeah if you get hit your gonna be sore, and if it's the chin you may stumble or start seeing stars. The only way to properly gauge your chin is getting experience fighting hard/skilled punchers. Just do your thing and don't worry about it. If you move and guard well you might not have to find out too soon.

you have a good chin if you can get caught with a hard punch and keep coming forward like nothing even happend! Good example Librado andrade(i hope i got it right)!
or you also have a good chin just as long as you dont look like the fraduley harrison check my sig!

yea your right on the spot, a good chin isint only a good chin but its also gotta be mental toughness, anyone could have a hard chin but if they dont got the mental part then you can forget about having a GOOD CHIN.

ya isint that something lol. I thought the ko was quiet funny due to harrison being ugly and even uglier after he got tagged. Ya you gotta hate the ass bags that have to run together to take someone down:boxing:
