    Normally hesitant to include myself in these kinds of threads, but I think it might be on point in this case.

    Galahad appeared rattled by an overhand right at the start of the fifth and seemed a little shaky and immediately clinched for a few seconds after that. So, the fact that Galahad got bowled over by an admittedly terrific and flush right hand later on in the round didn't seem like that big of a shock. The warning had already been sent. So, his resistance was in question, but the fact that he seemed completely out of it and was unable to react to the next right hand that Martinez lobbed is an indication that his punch recovery leaves much to be desired.

    When a fighter fails both of these tests so dramatically, then the term "glass jaw" can certainly be used.

    Was shocked he even came out for the round as he was still buzzed like BIG crazy from the previous round

    Yep, the circumstances that added up to it all do point to "not ready for primetime" shock absorption on his part. If anyone reasonably heavy-handed gives him a healthy tap on the chin, nose, temple, nape of the neck, pretty much anywhere from now on, it'll be a "get the popcorn, let's watch & see!" moment.

    Chin-checkers often fail to consider everything in context, but here doing so does return the same verdict as their customary snap assessments.

    is there any scientific explanation for The British Glass Jaw? Maybe high air humidity creates chin corrosion?

    Yeah, but I'm sure glad he did, as we got to see a picture perfect KO. It's these kinds of glass shatterings that are among the most exciting aspects of boxing!

    Although in fairness to Herol, the person who chinned him -- Julian Jackson -- punched with all the ferocity of a mule kicking. Jackson could do that to any opponent on any given day.

    Why you call it "china glass" ?!? For me it's more like "british glass".Galahad, Joshua, Price, Khan could ask you the same question, why china glass? Please, people, call it "british glass" as it should be :)

    I don’t it was only Jackson who chinned him though. My issue is they seem to get chinned the same way.

    That is a bit uncalled for. Being chinny is not a national affliction.

    Sorry man, but "British chin" or "British glass" just doesn't have the same ring as "china chin.":nonono

    This said, your post reminds me of these classics:

    Yeah the Ingle gym is a laughing stock. All they do is lose. Yet some people still won't admit it's a flawed style and a overrated gym.

    Backing up in a straight line, hands down, chin in the air, getting KTFO = The Ingle Style!! :lol:

    Galahad was always an average mediocre hypejob;. Hs glass jaw being exposed explains why he's had such a padded record for his 13 year pro career. He's avoided punchers his whole career
