adamek has one of the best chins in all of boxing.
1. the punch that chad dropped him with was too the body
2. adamek wasnt hurt he was just off balance when he got hit.
3. dawson is far from feather fisted, hes careful and doesnt take alot of risks so he doesnt have alot of KOs but he can still punch. when was the last time a dawson opponent wasnt forced to respect his power?
1b. adamek is a very small HW
2b. vitali is a huge HW
3b. adamek already took a beating and been softened up by the time vitali started really hurting him.
again, you cant make a list of teh best chins in boxing without adamek, to say he has one of the worst is retarded.
kirkland doesnt have a bad chin either, its not as great as adameks but to say its amongst the worst in boxing is bull****. he cut too much weight against ishida and got caught cold, in every other fight of his career he showed a dependable and sometimes absolute granite chin.
wlad also has an average chin, not great but not bad either. two of his 3 KO defeats were bcuz of fatigue and bodyshots rather than his chin and the other against a very big puncher. considering the amount of fights hes had i dont think that qualifies him as a weak chinned fighter. if he was he would have knocked out another 3-4 times.
harrison, judah and bute dont deserve to be on this list either. none of them have great or even good chins but they arent bad either.
ppl need to realize there is a grey area between having a glass jaw and a concrete one, ppl act as if a fighter gets hurt or knocked out once his chin is automaticly suspect. but punchers are considered punchers for a reason, they hurt ppl when they land.
if you get knocked out by a fighter who isnt known as a puncher your chin might be suspect, but if you fight a guy known to be a dangerous hitter and get caught with a big shot you are supposed to go down. you might not have a concrete jaw but you dont necessarily have a bad one either just bcuz you cant take the best punch from every fighter in the division.
