Yes. Check the first knockdown. That was a rocket overhand which caught him clean, and he bounced right back up and even smiled. The knockout was just one punch that ripped it's way through the history books. I don't think it reflects negativly on Pac's chin. That first KD could have knocked out the entire division.

His chin prime is over, now its only a matter of time until his power prime and speed prime are gone.

Before last night all the glass jaw brigade had Pac listed as iron jawed. All it proves is any fighter can be knocked out, some just have more resistence than others.

Pac doesn't have a glass jaw, that was just a monster shot timed perfectly.

I'm gonna copy paste my answer from a similar thread I made:

Not to take anything away from JMM's fantastic victory with that counter punch from hell, but Pac's chin doesn't seem what it used to be

In this fight we saw the return of the Manny of old days in several senses, not the lethargic half assed version that fought Bradley or the overly cautious Pac of JMM-Pac III, heck, round 5 was practically a return of Pac Prime!

This time speed was there, stamina was there, ferocity was there

BUT chin was not there!

Yeah, JMM's final counter punch was perfect, it landed flush on the chin, full body weight behind, feet firmly planted, opponent stepping in, the full package, ofc Pac had to go down after taking that, yet I still find incredible that he almost got killed by it, it looked like he wouldn't wake up!

and what about the first KD? that wasn't a counter and JMM never had that kind of devastating power before. Pac is well known for his sturdy chin yet Marquez made it look like it was made of fragile Khanium

I cant believe someone can just develop that sort of power during a 4 month training camp and at almost 40yo, it's unreal

Pac's chin is past its prime, that's the only plausible answer

He's had an ANGEL since3 month before the 3rd fight so more then a year now, and they have been keeping in shape since and working hard... Pacc had like a 1 month training camp. Also Marquz hurt PAC many times in pt 3 as well.


You do the math, pacquiaos chin is there its just he's a part time boxer masquerading as the face of boxing.
