Can you be completely, as Chuvalo said he was, mentally invulnerable and therefore the same physically?
Can you condition yourself to take punches that should kill others, like Hagler did?
To me taking a good punch is just a matter of the person getting hit being able to take it or not.....Some can and some cant...But you can strengthen your neck to absord the shock better.........As far as body shots sit ups work wonders.......
