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)

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.
Years of sucking Ellerbe's **** will toughen his chin.

Yep. The only really good punches that landed end up hurting him. His chin is not exceptional, but his recuperative powers are.

His chin is average.

He wouldnt have got where he is without a solid chin regardless of his defensive skills.

He recovers very well though and keeps very composed. His defence gives him the few extra seconds he needs to clear his head.

I dont think its anything special, but itll hold up against a crisp a punch long enough for him to go on defensive mode. Which means youre probably not hitting him again anytime soon.

In the vast majority of his fights, he doesn't get hit with a single good shot. He either slips it entirely or rolls with it, taking it's effect away. Exceptional defence but he's shown that when he is hit clean, he can be hurt.

ROUND 4 Vs Corely is almost a mirror of Mosely RD 2

We will never know because Money is smart enough NOT to take punishment...Money has NEVER been down from a punch in his career..the Tijuana Tornado has so IN MY OPINION Money has a better chin than the Tijauna Tornado

Void has a glass jaw! Old man Mosley put him on ***** street with one right hand! If Void thinks Mosley hits hard.. Wait until he feels the wrath of Pac's killer combos! Pac would shatter that glass and expose the Hype Job once and for all! Ohhh yeah...
