Jackson's chin wasn't all that, his glory days were at 154. Abraham has a solid chin and big power i believe he takes this by KO.

I love Julian Jackson but I can't pick him to win. His power is not of this world but he couldn't take shots.

It would be interesting to see how long AA would be willing to wear the "earmuffs" while Jackson is laying the thunder to his ribs.
I guess I'd have to go with Abraham. He wouldn't give Julian many opportunities while we know Jackson would give opportunities to him.
Of course, AA could be winning handily when he makes that one mistake...

I don't think Abraham could beat Jackson. Does he have tools to do it? Sure. Physical strength and punching power is what you need. But Froch fight showed that Abraham is not a fighter that like to take risks, so he wouldn't just go thrugh Jackson. He would try to pick punches on his guard and explode from time to time like he always does. There are two problems with that:
1) He would feel even those Jackson punches that he would block, that would bust up him face.
2) When Abraham flurries, he is completely open, he puts his hands down. It's almost impossible to catch him inbetween punches, as they carrie so much power that it throws you off balance, but with good timing you could catch Abraham right before his first punch with his hands down. And Julian, in addition to his physical gifts, had really decent timing.
I can even show you how this fight would end:
Go to 43:08 and look how hard Abraham was after catching countering left hook. I see Julian catching "King" with the same kind of left hook and putting him to sleep.

^Abraham was a much better fighter when he was at 160 tho, compared to 168.

If Abraham made it past the 1st few rounds, I think he'd win. But he'd be in a hot mess early.

is abraham really winning this poll or have i stroked out on my keyboard?
jackson does everything better than abraham. i know theres a myth he had a bad chin bcuz he got knocked out several times late in his career when he was washed up. but anyone who followed his career and studied him when he was at his best rather than just watched three of his fights and reading his boxrec page, they know he had an iron chin in his prime.
if you take enough shots even the best chin will start giving out late in your career, just look at mayorga or vargas.
he had good defense too when he chose to box, he was just one of those guys who didnt mind taking a few unnecessary shots to put on a good show. even when there was an easier way to win.
jackson was on top of the world for nearly a decade. the man was like 47-1 (45) at one point with his only loss being to atg mike mccallum. abraham meanwhile has been badly exposed as a slow, straight forward, weak skilled, low intelligence brawler. whos only real tool aside from his power is a clever promoter.
jackson is on another level from this dude, he would end him.
abraham barely even has a punchers chance since hes a slow starter, cant counterpunch for **** and jackson would jump on him (and hurt him) from the first bell. no way his slow, wide swings would find jacksons chin. jackson had fast hands and was a good combination and body puncher. he would find holes in abrahams guard and leave him with a hole in his head twitching on the floor.
