You aren't only funny, but amazingly stupid. So, he had the smarts to take a knee when he was hurt? That doesn't make his "Chin" good dummy, it just means he did a smart thing to compensate for his lack of "chin"

He didn't take a knee, it is impossible to take a knee in those situations. There simply isn't enough time to.

What Calzaghe has that Toney doesn't, is an instinctive fuse in his chin.

Yeah, I forgot Baldomir. He took some massive shots against Forrest and just kept on moving forward. Like Andrade did vs Kessler.

Toney's chin is good, no doubt. However, his defence is such that he rarely eats flush shots in any great number. For me, a good chin is somebody who leads with it and walks through everything that's thrown at them, the aforementioned Wayne McCullough being a good example of this.

The reason I picked Toney is cus this guy is a natural 160-168lber...There are not many people in the world who are naturally small and then go up to Heavyweight to take probably the hardest punches in boxing from Samuel Peter and handle them like no problem.

I don't think Paul Williams has ever been dropped or badly hurt in a fight. I don't know if he has a granite chin but he has a very good chin.

For active fighters, I think it's Oliver McCall. All time P4P, I think it's Hagler. His chin was diamond coated 100% pure titanium.

Hatton's chin is very good. But I would have to go with McCall, his chin is probably the best in history. The hasn't even been phazed by a punched, let alone wobbled. Toney is another one with awesome punch resistance.
