Maybe average chin. He did fight pretty good punchers and took solid shots from them. Mercer, Vitali, Briggs come to mind. A glassed jawed fighter would have fallen more often.
Well I see what you're saying but Lewis fought an old Mercer and many people thought Mercer actually won. Ok fine.
Also Briggs fought Lewis with a fractured right hand and still rocked him in 1. Vitali is widely considered to not be a one punch KO artist.
