his chin isn't iron, it's decent, someone mentioned that it was his feet that keep him when he's hurt, and there's a case to be made for that

Bradley does have an iron chin & an iron heart

He took monster shots of providnikov even a concussion & kept on fighting, he took manny pacquaio's best shots that knocked down Marquez (who also has a good chin) & Bradley never went down

Credit to Bradley, his stamina, heart, chin, win him fights

Titanium heart. Solid chin, not iron.

A very hard chin,and a heart like a bucket.Amirs got as much heart,but nowhere near the chin.Thats the difference.Everything else,speed,power,etc is equal for me.The Russian took some shots also.I suspect his chin may be iron.

Seems to have a good chin, not quite iron but quite good.
I would say his recovery powers are remarkable, the only person i have seen with better in recent years is Marquez... he seems to be fine the moment he lands on the canvas.

I think it's his recuperative powers that keep him in there rather than his chin. The Kendall Holt fight was a good example of this; Holt almost took his head off with a murderous left-hook in the first but Bradley beat the count, recovered and went the distance, just like last night.

You don't want to rely on that to get you through fights too often though.

I think thats why he wore the reyes gloves last night, traditionally he wears Grants but last night I think he wanted to do some damage, Ruslan just ended up being a tuff SOB

His form his flawed but he turns into them better than most fighters. But that's really irrelevant to the fact that their reactions from known punchers incite different reactions from fans.

It's decent, solid, that's how I describe it, I agree. Though I don't know why people think legs are separate, balance and the ability to stay upright is directly related to how well you take a shot on the button.

Exactly. I would not say his chin is iron, because clearly he can be hurt. However, he makes up for his some dentable beard with amazing recuperative powers. Kind of like Larry Holmes used to.

The thing that makes Bradley so easy to root for: He doesn't have an iron chin; he as iron resolve...a quality in life we all wish we had more of.

That chin is definitely iron. This guy was hurt and rocked numerous times by punches that would stop most fighters. He reminded me alot there of a young Evander Holyfield. He just would not quit or go down. Great fight and his best fighter ever. Bradley has finally made me a fan. If only the kid could learn to punch.

How many fighters you know that can fight concussed? Those were concussive punches. And he ate them. That dudes chin is iron. He's always had a great chin to be fair. But its never been truly tested until last night.

His chin is not terrible, but it is not great either. Now, his ability to recover IS great, but we're talking about punch resistance. The "iron" designation should be reserved for guys like Chuvalo, LaMotta, or McCall who take punch after punch and remain standing. THAT'S an "iron" or "granite" chin.
