Default Re: More pathetic chin: Mundine or Khan?

In all honesty Mundine's chin has never really been tested. Yeah he has been stopped but in nearly all his fightst he has relied on his speed and evasive skills to keep his whiskers from being tested. Also most of his opponents haven't had the skills to catch him and test him.

In saying that he is getting older now and I have no doubt if he carries on we'll see what his chin is made of. As fighters who fight with Mundines style discover, once that speed and evasive skill slightly deteriorates, their chins get tested, Roy Jones Jr?

Khan has consistently fought better opposition and remember he was matching it with one of the all time great amateurs when he was 17. I can't think of an Australian boxer who was at that standard at such a young age. Khan has been stopped, but at least he has tested himself and love him or hate him he is one of the most exciting boxers today because of it.
