Floyd would take a bunch of shots when he was at 130 and seem to not even phase him sometimes.

Big Floyd, Unca Raja, and Jeff all have abysmal Glass Jaws. Money May beat that curse, however, and is a certified Iron Chinned Warrior.

Big Floyd took SRL's hammering punches, are you sure he's glass jawed?

Imagine what SRL would do to someone like Khan.

He stood up to them for a time but was dropped two or three times and stopped right when he was on the verge of being brutally KOed. His Chin was not good, at all. That being said, there are varying degrees of Glass and his Glass was certainly stronger than Khan's. Leonard would have indeed melted Khan in the first round.

Floyd has not proven to have an iron chin because he has hardly been hit to know. When he was tagged by mosley, he got rocked.

Fragile chin - everytime someone touches it, it buckles.

Fighters aren't suppose to take blows to the chin.

One of the best chins in the sport- Certified Iron Chin!!! It is certified people!! what don't you get about certified?

How many fighters have gone 42 fights without touching the canvass? If yall think he never gets hit then you haven't watched many of his fights.... Obviously the goal is to not get hit but yall non boxing muther****ers wouldn't know that. Check out the Corley fight where he takes bomb after bomb after being rocked and warriors through it instead of clinching and running he fights back taking bombs in the process, also the mosley fight he took those huge right hands that would have KTFO'd most and he powered forward fighting through it. He took numerous punches in the Chavez fight where he went to war instead of showing off his d. When Floyd gets rocked, like Nazim said he unleashes the dragon, the warrior kicks in and he walks you down and fights his way out of it. No doubt about it, when Floyd has to go to war with someone he does it and has shown an IRON jaw that few in the sport can compare with but when you have the ability to not get hit often any fighter in the world would opt to use it. Still in 42 fights he's been hit with numerous hard punches and always took them like an Iron chinned warrior.

Just watch from 2:40 (even though it's towards the end at 2:53)

He was tagged a lot more below WW because he was more willing to take risks.

Even when he was hurt by Corley, which was a shot he got caught with when he was throwing his own and didn't see Corley's... he fought back and was taking shot after shot clean and fighting back.



* Interesting however is that Floyd made the point about being hurt by Mosley was more from his long layoff and hadn't taken a punch in years so he wasn't used to it.
That's something else to look at as to why its best to stay active.

Overall, I think his chin is good but I wouldn't class it as one of the best.

However, his recuperation skills are very high.

and from a jab from a nobody!!! looked like he got shot!!!



this is what you call an iron chinned warrior taking murderous shots from one the hardest punchers in boxing and proceeding to war through it and come back and win the rest of the round: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA7O1krogGQ[/ame]

People who questions a undefeated fighters strength aren't thinking about the sport of boxing correctly.

Mayweathers chin is unbeaten. The Greatest boxer got squared in the chin before.

Mayweather has been hit clean far more than only 3 times and far more than by only 3 people. To think most people would still be still on their feet from the Mosley punch is funny... Judah badly wobbled Floyd, nah... He took shots from Corley and kept coming, not covering up and holding a lot as if he were badly hurt. Floyd doesn't have Margo's chin, but his chin is solid. Combine that with amazing recovery and his defense, and you have a hard opponent to badly hurt/stop.

Floyd is the only fighter that has the glassjaw fanclub speaking all serious and shit.

As Roger would say... Y'all DKSAB. Period.
