I know many people say you can work on your chin but in all my years of being in boxing, I have seen no evidence of this....NONE.
You can strengthen your neck muscles and all that but I have seen nothing that shows me you can take a better punch. It's just one of those things that guys are born with. Khan needs to be a better defensive fighter for sure but he needs to avoid the big shot, it's just that simple.
I couldn't agree more with everything you have said. I remember being called a hater after i predicted Khan would wipe the floor with Malignaggi but that he would definately get stopped again. His chin has always been shaky and like you said, I think it will always be shaky. He fits 140 well, he doesnt have great power even though he says he does, so 147 or 154 wont help him from being "drained" what he will find there are bigger punchers too.
Khan needs to be matched carefully. He's a very exciting game fighter and I think he could do well under Hunter, he tries and works hard and I bet he's quite a pleasure to train, he just needs some fundamentals taught to him.
