As Ken Dubbs has basically already said, Britain is just the island that includes Scotland, England and Wales. So we can't include any Northern Irish in the debate for Brits. But we could include N.Irish if we were talking about the UK and we could include Irish too if we talk about the British Isles (though I think the correct term is now Britain and Ireland).

To add something to the debate: I think Lennox Lewis had a very good chin. His losses were not to do with lack of punch resistance. There is a very good video on youtube showing Lewis taking shots from some very big punching HWs throughout his career and not so much as flinching.

Eubank and Mccullough had the best chins in my era of viewing boxing, Wayne Mccullough was a very average fighter but he had a granite chin which was basically the only reason why he could make a living in the sport. He had no offense that the top guys worried about but his toughness made him last to the end.
Eubank also had a fantastic chin but i'd go with Wayne on this one.
Lennox's chin wasnt as bad as people make out, it was just that he was terrified of taking a punch which makes people believe that he wasnt confident in his own chin, but he took some heavy shots in his career and he didnt go down ..

Clinton Woods shouldnt be mentioned as having a 'very good' anything .. The most average British world champion ive ever seen, he makes Paul Ingle and Frank Bruno look like Sugar Ray Leonard
