Default Which boxer had the best chin?

Apologies if this thread already exists.

Who could take the most punishment and keep coming back for more?

I say George Chuvalo and Jerry Quarry are up there on the list. The former never got knocked out and if the latter didn't get cut so easily, he may not have had some of those TKOs.

No worries as far as I'm concerned; always a fun topic........besides the ones you've mentioned, I'll add:

Tex Cobb: he withstoof the blasts of Shavers, and 15 rounds of lashing right hands against Holmes without flinching; his chin was awe-inspiring.

Lamotta: His legend speaks for itself.

Ali: Yes, Ali; Look at the plethora of punchers he took bombs from. The chin from hell.

Salvador Sanchez: Took howitzer shots from Lopez, Gomez, and Nelson without even so much as changing the expression on his face. Impervious jaw.

Lamotta was one I was contemplated putting in my post also. The beating he took from Robinson and he still stood up...sorta.

As for Ali. I question that. A good chunk of his fights contained him covering himself up along the ropes. He really didn't take too many clean hits there.
