In addition to the others mentioned, Joe Grim is another. His chin was unreal.

Eh? Rosario? Hmmm, in his six losses, five were by KO. I think one of his let-downs was his chin. Not really a let down per se, but it was not his greatest feature certainly.

I remember him being blown out by Ramirez in their amazing shoot-out early in his career. He also got busted up and TKO'd by Chavez, KO'd by Randall, Nazario and some other guy that I can't remember.

Those guys weren't weak punchers or anything, but neither were they Hearns-esque brutal. Hagler taking a flush punch right on the chin from Hearns is amazing. No one else that took such a perfectly placed shot from Hearns stood up to it, from Welter to Cruiser. That's amazing.

Actually, a guy that beat Rosario is often underrated in this area. Good ol' 'Macho'. He had a very good chin. Only down once from memory or maybe twice in his long, storied career.

I have a feeling some of you guys took guys that the other person said and just used those also.

Bernard Hopkins imo, a very strong chin.

never been KO'd

I think infact, in his entire career, was only knocked down twice in the same bout, which was because it was at an altitude of 10,000 feet in Ecuador!! He still never lost.

Not to mention he has fought some huge punchers in his day.

Pavlik, Tito, Tarver, Johnson, Jones, Echols, Lipsey, Holmes, Daniels, etc. all have pretty good KO ratios. And never knocked out or knocked down by none of them.

David Tuya, he had a big fat head that used to absorb blows, shame he had no skill.
