Default Boxers who have notorious "sweet spots"?

With the glass-jaw talk, I just thought I'd posit the question of a boxer developing a particular "sweet spot", in which if pressed correctly, will put him to sleep.

A famous example I can think of is Roy Jones Jr. He really developed a sweet spot. . . Right around his temple, but not really on the temple. . . Kinda below the ear right on his jawline. . .


ANy other examples you can think of?

ALso can include fighters with areas vulnerable to cuts, and swelling. So, Margarito would be a perfect example of this; before the Pacquiao fight, his face was so durable - barely even reddened after the Mosley fight. . Nothing during Cotto I. . . But after Pacquiao busted his eye open, it has now become a "sweet spot" taht will always be prone to swelling.



What about Enzo Mac? He seems to have some sort of sweet spot. . . Wladimir has to have his "sweet spot" too. . .

Enzo Mac has a huge sweet spot called his head.

Wlad if he gets clipped clean on the chin.

Katsidis crumples when you hit him in the body.

Pacquiao gave Margarito(e) that "sweet spot" right under his eye. Cotto(e) went right for it.

Honestly, I stopped watching him. Don't think he should be fighting.

Bernard Hopkins is delicate on the back of his head.

Ortiz doesn't take one square on the chin all too well, but he takes them pretty good to the eyes etc.

Ahh, yes, of course the Khan haters. . . yet he stood up to right hand, after right hand and being winged right on his chin from Maidana. . .

But yes, it was in a similar region

Lol, nah, just being honest. . . You are hating on him. . .


It proved he might have a sweet spot, but it's pretty damn sturdy as well. . .


Prescott was a fluke. . .
