Walker can punch very hard, so Ruslan still has his iron chin.
Ruslan hit Walker flush a few times - Travis doesn't have a good chin, yet Chagaev didn't seem to hurt him much.
Well, Ruslan was never a very big puncher, more of a combination puncher or thrower. And I guess thats one big reason why he never stood a chance against Wlad K. I thought he did rather well, considering how miserably other opponents prior to him failed.
