Re: Why do people say Michael Moorer has a glass chin?
Moorer's chin wasn't glass, but it wasn't great either. He did take some bombs in his career and showed toughness in fights with Stewart, Cooper, and others. The guy had guts and toughness and had a speedy and powerful blow. But he could be stunned and dropped by solid blows. He usually got up, though. He was basically a very talented and powerful lightheavyweight who was good enough to move up to heavy and beat a lot of guys, but because he was not a truly natural heavy, he wasn't going to be able to absorb the blows from the very best at their best. All that said, let's face it, he did only get stopped three times in his career. So let's not get carried away. If you can win several championship belts and fight some really tough cookies, and only get stopped three times in a career of 57 pro bouts, your chin isn't glass. Keep in mind also, the guy turned pro in 1988 and he fought until 2008. That's 20 years. Not bad.
