Its impossible to say who had the best chin but from recent years Scott Harrisons was pretty solid.

Wayne McCullough v Daniel Zaragoza is one of the greatest displays of a granite chin in history. He took tons and tons of big punches.

Listen..

Chris Euabnk has the greatest chin, he stood in there and took bombs..with the most devastating puncher outside of the heavyweight division and Mike Tyson.

I have to say, a lot of people knock Naz's punch resistance due to the knock downs and severe wobbles he had from time to time, but a lot of it was more to do with Naz's balance and positioning more so than a poor chin.
Naz used to move around very unconventionally, and as a result he was often in a position where if he copped a shot it would send him sprawling, just a question of balance and momentum rather than the poor chin he gets attributed with now and again.
