Most people underrate his chin, saying his defense is great but if he gets tagged by a puncher he's going down. Well, if you look at the Mosley fight, he got tagged by a monster right. It was crisp, on point, and had DEFINITE pop behind it. He took it well, and kept composed.
at the same time, it shows he isn't unhittable. Pac is gonna tag that chin of his with his combos

This is the reason why floyd's chin is one of the best

You do remember that Mosley landed that punch once and that was it, right ?

Contrast this to Miguel Cotto who has a bit ofa shakey chin, and he took Mosley's best punches all night.

Floyd's chin is good enough to keep him on his feet and do what he does best that's all . It's nothing special.
He has been shaken more than people remember.Ortiz clearly bothered him a few times Floyd shaking his head at him shows this.His chin has been tested and its been tested at the top level.I would say Floyd has a good chin,the bloke takes a good shot!

Margarito took like 300 punches from Shane before he finally succumbed. Floyd got hit by two solid punches and he was already holding on for dear life. Not a sign of an excellent chin.

Disagreed. Whenever any boxer gets tagged and shakes there head, etc...people automatically assume (especially the commentators) it has them hurt, or said boxer felt the punch. But that is clearly not the case 100% of the time. Against Ortiz, Mayweather was not troubled once, he shook his head and continued to walk Ortiz down. Now compare that to Mayweather shaking his head against Mosley, Mayweather was clearly hurt there (including his ego)...not at all vs Ortiz.

Not a fair comparison.

Margarito's chin = One of the very best/if not the best for years.
Mayweather's chin has not been tested, or held up to the same punishment.

Mayweather has a solid chin, but nothing extrodinary. Pac has him beat in that department.

Chin:

Pac-8/10
Mayweather-7/10

Floyd's chin was much better at 130 too imo. He'd get tagged a lot more and just shake em off like nothing happened

He would look to retaliate right away too. Look here when he got caught. He went after that ass immediately
