When Hagler is in question he is absolutely born with iron chin no mater if he boxed with headgear or not he had iron chin.
many of guys here act like amateur headgear protects chin
suggestion for you put it on and let boxer hit you on the jaw with a straight punch, you will find out there is no difference.
Tyson had very good chin and got dropped in sparring with headgear on!!
