Default Which British Fighter had the best chin?

You hear the Americans taking the piss about the myth of British fighters all having glass chins.

Lewis comes into stick for his, Haye and Khans are teensy bit china.

But what British fighter had the best chin?

If the brits claim McCullough then he gets my vote. The man could take severe punishment and still keep going forward. Never dropped in his career despite some serious and heavy punishment.

Plenty of other canididates too though.

yeah has to be mccullough even though hes irish . ffs, hamed , harrison , morales , larios and zaragoza , could not even put him on the canvas even though he was a blown up bantamweight and these lads were puttin super bantams and featherweights down no problem . come to think of it he probably has the hardest chin of all time .

Yea, definitely McCullough.

McCullough being retired by the doctor is possibly the most emotional thing I've seen in the ring.

Tommy Farr - went the distance with a prime Joe Louis, I think Max Baer was the only one to ever drop him.

I'd go with Eubank as I haven't seen as much of McCullough but his record looks impressive.

I also think Lennox Lewi's chin was underrated, he stood in the fire with Ray Mercer..laughed at Shannon Briggs, and in his last fight he took bombs from VK.

BOMBS..
