Contrast this to Miguel Cotto who has a bit ofa shakey chin, and he took Mosley's best punches all night.

Floyd's chin is good enough to keep him on his feet and do what he does best that's all . It's nothing special.
I disagree. The 1st hand from didn't Mosley didn't do shit. Mosley just got excited and jumped into Floyd with his whole body weight, and then started throwing him, trying to get his arm free. The 2nd right hand was a Hayemaker, and it did buckle him, but Floyd took it well beyond that, and never seem dazed.

Judah didn't hurt him either. He landed a good shot, and got all excited, and started winging wild shots that missed. If you look at the sequence again, Floyd had a look of complete calm on his face while Judah was swinging and missing, and even rolled the last shot beautifully. People are so unused to seeing Floyd get hit flush, that when it happens they overreact.
