Default does your chin improve as you get older?

now, let me explain. for example...jermain taylor is 14 years younger than hopkins, so when taylor was 16, hopkins was 30..taylor probably couldn't take hopkins best punch than, but he could when they fought in 2005.

so, does it improve as you get older?

to an extent...after u hit that certain age ur chin will DROP...look at roy jones jr. lol...that age is different for everybody...also remember when ur 16 ur still VERY young n ur body is not CLOSE to being fully developed in most cases. i would say ur body gets used to the punches more and u learn to deal w/ them the longer u get used to it, until a certain time when it will DROP and if u keep getting hit it will permantly damage u

i agree with JMonster.
You used get "used" to the punches and learn how to deal with it when you get hit with a bomb!!

I don't think it has anything to do with age, but more with pshycal condition (B-Hop)
