Who gives a shit? Barely anybody can even test it, and even when someone does, it's usually a ****ing fluke because he got careless or some shit. As a man, I don't think anything of the guy, but as a boxer, give the man his props, he's ****ing earned it.

I think he has been hurt by single shots even by not so amazing punchers too often to say he has a great or a atg chin.
Personally i would say his chin is good, and seeing as his defense is amazing thats all he needs.

I would rate his recovery more than his chin tbh, also his mental composure when he does get tagges is very good.

But most definitely NOT a atg chin.

Stupids statement ever made . Hageler, Duran, SRR, SRL, Orlando Canizales, James Tony, Mike McCallum.. All had great chins and grate defense .. Taking a punch to the ****ing head is not a normal thing.. Damage to the brain and skull is not reversible , these fighter where smart enough to know that, just because you can take a punch, does not mean you allow some one to pound on it. your chin is there when you need it, when you don't see that sneaky left or right hand coming, and nails you square, until then keep the D sharp and protect the chin. I mean really WTF ,, how many trainer go out and tell their fighter to let his opponent hit you on the chin that will teach him. not all mexican fighter have great chins, thats just a dumb statement in itself.

Again fighter that underestimate floyd's chin, will flail away at his head in hopes of KO ing his so called china chin, only to find out its solid, and they could have done something allot more constructive with there time like his body, instead of going for the KO that never comes, and getting Gatti'ed ..

Pac-8/10

That should be fair enough since ratings are relative.

However, there are retards here who claim that Mayweather's chin is stronger than Pac's (borderline stupid) AND Margarito (outright retarded).

But don't take my word for it, see for yourself in 3....

This is boxing, anyone can be hurt by a good punch. I think Lights Out and the Executioner have great chin but even they have been floored to the canvas.

That doesn't take away from their chin, but it boxing...no one chin is indestructible.

Sugar caught Money twice in that fight, Money made an adjustment in t he 3 round and that shit never happened again. Money has a good chin when he has to use it but anyone can be hurt.

I think Money has a better chin than the Tijuana Tornado because Money never been down from a punch.

I don't think we'll ever see Mayweather allow anyone to punch themselves out like that again. It's a risky tactic on the big stage fights because the other fighter will have groupies in the audience that scream like silly hoes whenever that guy flurries. They used activity to try to jack Floyd against Oscar, and did use it to jack Bernard against "Joe".

For the people that think Mayweather has a better chin than Margarito.... its ok to be a fan but please realise that Mosely had to hit the guy flush in the face about 200+ times before there was any effect.
Mayweather buckled and almost went down after just 1 single flush shot.

Now Mayweather for sure has a good chin (not great), but do you honestly think he could take the same punishment Margarito did? (with his defense he obviously never would)
