Default Other than Vitali which HW's today have Iron chins?

Mariuz Wach comes to mind when thinking of the current crop, McCall is also still hanging around and his chin is still holding up. who else?

Wach may be a roiding fraud, but one thing is natural and that's his granite chin.

I am one of the biggest Wlad fans on this forum, but come on his chin far from being Iron. People do overrate how bad his chin is though, we've certainly see worse among great HW's.

Tuas chin has regressed quite a bit, I think any decent fighter would knock him out today. but at his best his chin was close to granite.

Most of the other guys you mentioned have good chins, but not granite.

Tua still has a good chin (definitely isn't the block of Adamantium it used to be though, he got dropped by Barrett not too long ago)

It's hard to tell who else has a good chin since lots of HWs aren't tested on the way up until they eventually cash out vs. a K-Bro.

I'd wager that Pulev has a solid chin though.

Wladimir's chin is granite son.

He was down 13 times but only knocked OUT three times.

Which means it takes an average of 4.44 KD'S to KO Wlad.

That is the best KD/KO ratio among top 25 HW (ALL TIME)

Guinn (243 rounds boxed, never been down)
Briggs (Watch his last fight)
Chisora (2 Heavy Kd's against Haye and got up quick both times)

All Iron

Johnson's is partly his rope a dope and shoulder roll style, but id still class as iron.

Wladimir's chin is suspect, yet it can be considered diamond compared to hypejobs like Price and Mitchell

now those are disgraceful glass jawed frauds

James Toney, hands down the best chin. He is a SMW, fighting at heavyweight with only pure fat to be there. Last time he was knocked down was in 1993, and it was a flash, off balance knockdown, he wasn't even hurt. When you've got a SMW taking heavyweight shots and nobody can knock him out still, he is a special one... his chin is still holding up too.

Viatli does not have an iron chin. He just rarely gets clocked
