He took the absolute best of Nelson, Fenech, Esparragoza, and Hodkinson without ever really being hurt.

Up until he was shockingly dropped by Frankie Randall, JC Chavez definitely had one of the best chins ever. He took the best shots of guys like Rosario, LaPorte, and Mayweather without even blinking.

Forgot about Chavez. Was that the only knockdown he suffered in his career? against Randall.

No. He was dropped by Tszyu, also.

Top 5: Hagler, Holmes, LaMotta, Cobb, and Chavez.

A few others with solid whiskers: Ali, Foreman, and lets not forget Micky Ward.

I think so too. He took many Mosley punches and never went down. Also Vargas shook him up a couple times and Vargas can punch. Who else? Quartey, yes, altho Quartey wasn't really a devastating puncher but if he landed enough he could be.

Jorge Castro could really take a punch (Argentinians are tough to KO!). Took a beating from John David Jackson, and came back to win via KO. Took the best of Roy Jones and Terry Norris, back when they both were knocking guys out.

If those are the only 2 knockdowns it's extremely impressive for a career with 115 fights.
