I find it fascinating that there are such huge diffirences. One guy got cut from the wind of a jab while others never even got cuts or swollen much in their entire careers.
Go ahead and name some. Should be interesting.

Dick Tiger.

Very, very durable.

Only ever knocked down once near his prime by Emile Griffith (Offically. He was unoffically flash knocked down by Joey Giardello before that)

Don't think he was cut. Certainly not often or by a punch.

Jack Dempsey used to soak his face, I believe in brine. I might be wrong but I can't recall him ever being cut to shreds in a fight.

Lennox lewis has some venom on his punches. Did Mike Tyson ever get cut from punches before the Lewis fight? I don't recall, and he was cut to pieces against Lennox.

Howard Winstone had very tough skin and one of the reasons was his trainer, Eddie Thomas, told him that every time he was done having a piss too rub his brows before washing his hands.
True story.

Against Holyfield.

Speaking of Holyfield, I don't recall him being cut until his recent fight at 48 years of age.

Ali was only cut against Bob Foster.

Those were all from headbutts I believe. Also i think I've seen Holyfield cut before either against Bowe or Toney.

mayweather another one out of active fighters

Pernell Whitaker is another one. I don't think I ever saw him bleed.

Now that you mention him, Gil Clancy said that Emile Griffith was never cut in his long career.

I could be wrong, but I think that Sal Sanchez also had extremely tough skin. I can't remember seeing him with a cut.

Duran's a good one. Never marked up really despite the size difference, fighting anyone/everyone to old age. I can only recall the Simms cut too from a vicious butt.

Jack Dempsey. Didn't he use to soak his face and hands in brine to toughen them up?

Calzaghe had tough skin for a white boy, his first and only cut (i believe) was against Bika and it came via Butts
