What does Ali's beating Liston have to do with my question regarding Floyd having a weak chin?
I'm still not convinced that Patterson's chin was glass. I'll repeat what I said before. Patterson was a veteran of 62 pro fights. In all those matches, he was stopped by only 3 men. Two of them were all time great champions ( Ali and Liston ), while the third was a better than average puncher in Johanson. I don't know how this defines a guy as being chinny, especially given the super acheivments that Floyd put together for his size.
