Chuvalo
Oliver McCall (the best chin ever probably)
Some old timer very bad boxer but he was extremely chinned he was nicknamed "iron man" and even Bob Fitzsimmons couldn't KO him if I'm right, later on he did get some KO losses.
But he had no boxing skills or anything else besides his chin.
George foreman
Sanchez
David Tua
Ike
Amir Khan (haha)

Rocky Marciano; Corrie Sanders; Dereck Chisora (yes) ; Ruslan Chagaev; but the most impressive chin ever belongs to Vitaly Klitschko, granitic.

Sanders only showed a good chin against Vitali, who is more of a heavy-handed accumulation puncher when he faces top-class competition.

He was dropped by Rahman twice and taken out by a single shot from Nate Tubbs.

Now this is an iron chin. Look at how many clean shots he takes from Lewis.

What is the definition of an 'iron chin'?

I would say George Chuvalo had an 'iron chin'; I would say Larry Holmes had an 'OK chin', but excellent powers of recovery when hurt and indeed, floored.

Wow! That guy is impressive, i didn't know him! By the way, when he putted Lennox to the ropes, LL would have gone down without his dirty triks, grab grab and rabbit punches... like in many of his other matches; Probably Lennox is, with Wladimir, the champion with the most disadvantage between power, damage output, and chin; his loss to Mc Call is ever shocking!
