Britton is a great choice.

Of recent times the WW with the best chin was Jose Luis Lopez the guy took huge shots without even blinking,very talented kid, too bad he was more interested in partying and being a surfer than being a professional boxer.

Faster, offensive variety, defense, techniques (Turbotime, Robinson)> right hand, shell defense (graziano, homie in the club)

That's not what I'm torn up about.

So where would you rate him?

Graham or Suga? I would probably keep it the same. To fight as often as Sugar out of his best weight at that level and only almost DIE once is still ****ing impressive

Again, the 1940s-50s (The BURT BIENSTOCK Era) boasted some of the most impressive iron chins of all-time. Some a tier or so below the others, but all great nonetheless. The names roll right off the tongue (or fingertips): LaMotta, Gavilan, Robinson, Graham, Marciano, Basilio, Fullmer, among others.

Yes. I have a hard time rating Fullmer though because he got one punched by old Suga.
