Yeah that is stupid, we can't take a better punch, because our "johnsons" are bigger...Naw i'm just playing...
I know a few brothas with glass jaws.. I heard during a fight when roy jones was whopping on this puerto rican dude and he didn't fall, it might have been telesco, but I'm not sure, but anyway the commentator said, the bigger the person's legs are makes them better at sustaining punches to the chin...I think it has a lot to do with heart...

and knocked out twice last year and he has chicken legs, so that might go to support what I was saying don't you think?

It's also not really about the actual CHIN, is it? We say someone's got a weak chin, but we aren't talking about the front of their jaw, just how easily they can be knocked out. That's as much about the neck as anything.

Strong neck muscles do help.
Tyson's got a huge neck,and he can take sustained beatings and hard shots before going down these days.
