Default Re: for good athletes transitioning to boxing, is the chin the biggest factor?

It's going to be difficult to transition from a sport where athletes plays "tense" for 2-4 second bursts, to a sport where the athlete needs to be "relaxed" while punching and avoiding being punched for 3 minutes at a time. There isn't much carry over from football to boxing other than both sports have contact.
very good point that i dont see too many making
