In the heavyweight division I think the top 5 were Ali, Marciano, Foreman, Tyson and Holyfield... McCall & Mercer deserve some mention, too...

Because having a great chin is not always about not going down, but rather how you respond when you do go down, Larry Holmes deserves special consideration for a) all the monster shots he sponged without going down, and b) for the monster shots that did drop him, but failed to keep him there. Shavers, Snipes both dropped him w/ HARD shots and Larry got up like nothing happened and went on to win by KO. Shots like those KO inferior chins. Larry had a rock solid jaw.

It took a prime Mike Tyson to finally cut him down.

Amen to that! Although, I must say that Larry had an even greater heart than he had a chin...
