Of course they all had/have granite chins so it is pretty hard to distinguish between which one had the better chin.

McCullough if he is down as British

-Prince Naz couldnt stop him
-He got hammered by Scottie Harrison but stood up for 12
-Got the best of shots from Morales
-Larios (twice beat him bad enough)...he stood up!
-Zaragoza also

And many other fights also..

McCullough isn't British otherwise I would have to say he's my choice...


I am sure there are loads from before my time that I have not seen but I reckon from my era... probably Eubank. Naz was a good shout though earlier in this thread... knocked down a fair bit but I don't recall ever seeing him visibly hurt.

benny lynch didn't only have a good chin ,he didn't bleed either.
jock Mcavoy was tough, too.
tommy farr was dropped by bob olin as well as baer but was the hardest man in the division chin wise !!
