**** it, maybe he has a glass temple. Whatever, the guy can take a shot. He's taken FLUSH shots from Danny Williams, Sultan Ibragimov, Alex Gurov, Kelvin Davis and a ton of other heavyweights in the gym - a lot of the time without headgear.
Hmmm....you must know him, so I am interested when did Gurov crack him on the chin? In their fight he starched Gurov in 1, so unless they sparred I dont see it.
I don't care about chin, temple etc...to me it is punch resistance, yes a temple shot is worse but when Mock has you gone you know you have a shit resistance.
Guys like Tua etc have been caught on the temple and it is not an issue.
