"These are just the people, that spring to mind.

The most durable chins in history i think are.

Evander Holyfield
Goerge Foreman
Muhammad Ali

Other solid chins.

Mike Tyson
David Tua

Other Solid Chins.

Lennox Lewis......"Whoever beleaves that Lennox Lewis had a glass chin or below average chin is "Dizzy and don't know boxing" i've had people in boxing, who has phoned me, and said.... Nahhh seriously, Lennox Lewis broke Shannon Briggs heart, when he took his best 1-2 punch combination, dropped his hands and smiled at him, and proceeded to knock Briggs out. Then Ray Mercer landed some serious heat, Gary Mason, Frank Bruno Landed some bombs", the list goes on.........Lennox Lewis in my opinion the punches that Oliver Mccall landed, Lennox Lewis got up, and was stopped on his feet. And also against Shannon Briggs, he was up after 10......"And that was a bomb, that Lennox Lewis ran into". Lennox Lewis throughout his whole career, when he was tagged......"Always always fought back, and always had that competitive streak within him".

"Overall, i think Goerge Foreman has the best punch resistant in history".

I always remember when Evander Holyfield landed all those punches on foreman. George Foreman was the most physically bruit strong heavyweight of all-time, superhuman bull dosing strength. His greatest assets weren't any of his skills, because lets be really honest he was really primitive. "But the man was just superhuman"......."Only two things can hurt Superman, Kryptonite and George Foreman"

More proof of Lennox Lewis's solid Chin.

I really thought that Bowe was truly the real deal....he stacked the deck but didn't come to the table. Lewis - Bowe could have been a fight for the ages.

From Boxrec so take a pinch of salt "Bowe has later admitted in interviews that Hide had him out on his feet at one point in the fight and was the hardest puncher he ever faced. "

James Toney.

From middle to heavy and only saw him stunned/rocked once, early days at 160 against Reggie Johnson. He was off balance in the knockdowns against RJJ and Peter. That's a lot of fights against a lot of big punchers from 160 to 255 lbs. At least one of the best p4p chins ever.

Don't think i've ever seen Tua rocked in the pro ranks.

I don't think Vitali, he was hanging on like on octopus in the last round against Lewis, and as far as i'm concerned Sanders scored a KD on him in the first round. He was definitely shaken up and on his bike, nobody can deny that.

I've always said Lennox had a quality chin. He faced more punchers than any HW champ in history(arguably)

I agree with whoever said Chuvalo is still sharp (sorry not to give you full credit, very stoned and on iPhone ) his chin is the best HW chin I've seen on film So many punchers faced, and how he stood up to a peak Foreman trying to take his head off and acted like he was merely being breathed on, was an incredible display of jaw bone/skull density. And yet he's a thoughtful, eloquent and gracious man still.

Both George Foreman (surely his later days prove that Ali dropped him because he was 'The Greatest' and we all know Lyle was a puncher) and Holyfield (could be hurt but also had an iron will!) are also very good shouts.

But Grim was literally just a chin. No defence, no offence. And he could not be put away.

Vitali has probably the most overrated chin in history.

EDIT: This was harsh. He clearly has a very good chin, but has not faced too many big punches (not a typo) in his career. Took some hellaious shots from Lennox, granted, and had some trouble with Sanders (who got his respect, Sanders was a decent puncher though) but Hide landed nothing (and fell over from nothing) and his comeback has not seen him troubled by anyone enough to really prove his chin further IMO.

A good chin for sure, but not one of the most proven IMO.

not a KD in my opinion, he staggered him, gets him with a left, then pushes him over, the ref never counted, no KD for me.

Macall, 100% pure concrete shit house.
Lewis, Tyson and Ali all had underrated chins too.
Fury is so good he chin checked himself mid fight and stood up well to himself, so I think that puts him up with the greats too
