Sugar Ray Robinson
Ali
Holyfield
Marciano
Hagler

Trust me on this.

Joe Grim
George Chuvalo
Jake LaMotta
Rocky Marciano
Mavin Hagler
Muhammad Ali

See the complete list at http://www.boxingscene.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70896&highlight=real+chins

My vote is Joe Grim, all he did was sit in the ring with his guard down and noone could KD him. His real name is Saverio Giannone born in Italy he fought well over 100 to possibly 300 fights and only won 10 of them. Can you imagine how many rounds that is?

George Chuvalo
David Tua
Ike Ibeabuchi
Gerald Mcclellan
Marvin Hagler


THE best chins ever. Guys who have never been dropped, atleast not legit(Haglers slip, Tua's off balance kd after the bell, Gman taking a knee because of a ****ing bloodcott) and took a 1 punch ko punch without blinking sometimes.

There is quite a few boxers from the past that had chins made of granite.

Ali (His chin was extremely under-rated)
Chuvalo (Fought a lot of fighters with hammer punches and he was still hard to put down)
La Motta (Just watch his fights with Ray Robinson
Ray Robinson (Just watch his fights with La Motta :) )
Leonard
Frazier (Could take haymakers all day)
Hagler

I always think of Oliver McCall when someone mentions great chins, that guy is just a freak, Hagler of course, the pocket rocket, and many others. To the guy who mentioned Tua getting knocked out in the amatuers, come on get real, he was about 18, and got knocked out by Felix Savon, Tua is up there with the best chins too, no doubt.

Definitely, Toney is up there in a pound for pound sense. A middleweight going up in weight (mostly fat) to heavyweight and taking the biggest puncher in the division's shots, without going down? Toney has the best chin in boxing today, that's for sure.

Why do you keep making fun of Toney? Yea he has fat on him but that short, blown up fat boy, beat up on supposedly the hardest punching heavyweight.

every time the best chin question comes up almost everyone forgets about ray mercer. (except you dynamite). and yeah, toney deserves to be up there too, but hes always had a great chin, even before the peter fight.

Ali didnt receive enough shots from Foreman. If he did, then i would put him in the same breath as Mercer who took so many flush shots from

Tommy Morrison: One of the best left hooks ever, one of the hardest hittres.

Lennox Lewis: huge guy with one of the hardest right hands ever, and a lot of overall power.

Mercer did take shots like Ali did :rolleyes:

he was caught flush on the chin from foreman, and didn't even show that he was hurt, that's enough for me to rank him above mercer

Hahaha. Talk about nuthugging.
That is a retarded argument. Foreman was not Superman! First of all, Foreman was not a 1 punch knockout fighter. Never was, never will. You should know since you're all over Ali's jocks. IF Ali took more shots from Foreman, he would have gone down. ALi took a real flush punch from Shavers, and he went down!
Mercer has taken a lot more flush shots from Morrison and Lewis without going down.
I guess this isnt gonna change your nutthing mind though.

SquareCircle
09-10-2006, 03:24 PM
by comparing morrison and lewis to foreman even in terms of power you've effectively owned yourself. THe only power shot Lewis had that was better than what Foreman had was a right uppercut. The only weapon MOrrison had better than Foreman was a left hook. FOreman's right hook, the one ali took a few of, was far more powerful than either blow from morrison or lewis.

dont be upset that your favorite fighter was a coward, and a ***** rapist who hid between walls and beat up on old women for cash.

You owned yourself. You dont know anything about boxing if you dont think Lewis or Morrison compare to Foreman in terms of punching power. If you could stop drewling on ALi's and Foreman's nuts you would understand :)

You explained wich punches were as good as Foreman's. Mercer took all those punches without blinking! and more often than Ali did from Foreman!

I think the one that got owned is the kid who doesnt wanna debate against solid facts because he himself got owned :)

What does Tyson have to do with this? Where did i hate on Foreman? Why are you saying im owned even though you're the one that has nothing to say against the facts?

Best Chins Ive ever seen:

Jake La Motta - Dont get me started..

Marvin Hagler - Just watch Hearns - Hagler...nuff said:boxing:

B-Hop - Jermain Taylor whom Id consider a fairly big puncher a middle couldnt make him blink,nor could a machine middle RJJ,nor a Light Heavy "Legend Killer" Tarver...

Joe Frazier - took Alis best shots for 34 rounds without touching down

Oliver McCall - Crazy chin like Ive never seen him hurt and he was Tysons sparring partner!:boxing:

Steve Collins - took a whole lotta flush shots from Benn without batting an eyelid :boxing: :D

Hey Yaman, guess what? Evander Holyfield fought both George Foreman and Lennox Lewis and guess what he said? Yeah, that's right. He said that Foreman hit far harder than anyone he ever faced, including Tyson, Lewis, and Bowe. So that means a 42year old Foreman hit harder than a 34year old lewis, so imagine how hard a 25yr. old foreman hit? :rolleyes:

Owned!!

Why isn't Duran on that list? Duran started at 118lbs and didn't get KO'd till he went to MW and that was against no ordinary MW it was against Hearns.

Thats equal if not greater to what JT achieved in going up in weight.

Hey Assfly, guess what? Maybe you should watch how these fighters possesed punching power instead of reading stuff about them. http://youtube.com/watch?v=f4l2Cyl8F1E imo it was a punch that clearly knocked Ali down. And imo Lewis did have one of the hardest right hands ever. Did i say Lewis hit harder than Foreman? Tell me where i said that you miserable butterhead :cool: Please tell me exactly how i said that a 34 year old Lewis hit much harder than Foreman.
Exactly you cant! because you cant read. Fact STILL is that Mercer took just as much punishment as Ali without going down. Maybe not as much but he proved his chin to be just as good.

Now YOU are ''pwned''!!

Now you are putting words in my mouth. I never said that you said that lewis hit's a lot harder than foreman. I just showed proof that foreman hit's a lot harder than lewis, that's all.

Holyfield did say that Foreman was the hardest puncher he ever faced, and since he fought both lewis and foreman, then logically foreman has more power than lewis.

Thats equal if not greater to what JT achieved in going up in weight.The difference is Duran got knocked out with one punch from Hearns, Toney has never been down in the HW division, the shot that Peter landed on the side of the head on Toney would've knocked out any other heavyweight.

In a P4P sense, McCullough. Of the heavies throughout history, I'd say ....Chuvalo in the front, he faced history's hardest punchers... followed by Tua or Ibeabuchi...Honorable mention to Toney...Foreman gets credit in my opinion as well because he's never truly been ko'd cold..
