That neck **** isn't going to work. Work on improving your defense if your chin is soft. You're probably allowing yourself to get hit with shots what can stun anyone. Stop trying to trade, and become more defensive-minded.

and then you wont get hurt by most punches

Working your neck does definitely help. A strong neck will alow your head to take punches better.

Isometrics are good.

Also putting a neck harness on and working your neck muscles with it.

then there is neck bridging. This last one is difficult to do and MUST be done with perfect technique.

Try using google to search for more information on these exercises.

Neck exercises are very dangerous, and must be performed perfectly or you risk serious injury. I would recommend staying away from them. Work on your defense, like someone else suggested, it's much safer, and probably better for you.

Your problem is probably just overall ****ty fighting. Not weak chin.

seriously, how long have you been fighting. The only time I've ever been knocked down was in my first couple of fights. I use to just throw my right hand, and I would even close my eyes when I did it, I sucked. But once i calmed down, started jabbing, kept my eyes open, I havn't been knocked down again.

Except for this guy in my gym who has got me twice, with the body shot. I have a weak liver, and need to do some ****ing situps.

That doesn't sound like a weak chin. Everybody gets caught with one once.
