yeah, i agree with this point too. although it's true it's harder to get hit with a clean shot when your chin is tucked down, i believe it is also harder to slip a punch when your chin is tucked down.
you have lesser chances of getting hurt because your chin is not exposed, but i believe that it affects your movement & punches quite significantly.
