being able to take prime jones shots without going down is something worth mentioning.

My dad raved about Ken Buchanans chin. He said he was in some wars back in the good old days when fighters were hard as nails and boxed 15 rounds. For me it has to be Wayne McCullough but then he is Irish but noone will come near him for his chin and bravery in the ring.

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.
Funnily enough I've just posted that video on a thread in the General.

None of this p4p bullshit though. The greatest chin has to belong to someone who has proven themselves to withstand the regular skull crunching shots from a heavyweight as physiologically they are, on a whole, way and above more powerful. Gary Mason deserves a shout, seriously underrated chin. Bugner had a canny chin in his prime too.
