No, we don't know either way - the jury is still out for me but on the evidence so far I think its fair to say his chin is suspect.

Its not just the knockdown he suffered in the Limond fight, he was also dropped heavily by Watson towards the end of his amateur career.
The flash knockdown he suffered against Drilzane did appear to be more of a slip against the ropes in fairness to Khan.

The fact Khan is consistently matched against light hitters has also undoubtedly added to the questioning of his chin - this won't go away until he is put in with a puncher.
