Sweetpea , you are right
Marvin Hagler easily.......maybe the best chin pound p pound...
Theres been so many great, great chins , Hagler, Gavilan, Greb, Ali, McCall, Morales. But imo the cream is LaMotta , rounds 11 and 12 of the Lamotta-Robinson vi bout prove it. And Robinson punched very hard still at 160 , the Fulmer knockout proves it along with others. Not any disrespect to the others , but LaMotta's chin was unreal , after him id say McCullough though
Why have more people not mentioned James Toney? He takes heavyweight shots like they are nothing and he's just a fat middleweight. Eubank has a shout though and La Mottas was superb too
Absolutely no way Benn is the ****ing hardest hitting MW ever.
No he didn't. He caught Logan with a swing from the rafters while in desperate trouble himself. Benn never went down nor was going down at that particular point.
I know its "Middleweight Chins" but people just shout out Hagler as number 1, when he never relly prove himself like Micky Walker, I talking about his trip to the heavyweights. Talking the best punchings from Schmeling and Sharkey with out takeing the ten count. I dont think Hagler could do that feat.
No love for Jorge Fernando Castro? He had a sold chin. Ask Roy
Too short on resume.
Wdym resume? Reggie Johnson tested both him and Toney's chin and he said Castro had a better chin. Terry Norris said that Castro was tough. Cruiserweights such Vassily Jirov who also claimed that he is a close second to Toney.
When we are talking greatest chins ever at 160 there's a solid collection of guys. Personally i don't count feats at other weights when talking best middleweight chin and a lot of others don't from what I've seen over the years.
There's a reason why there's been no love for Castro.
Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Carlos Monzon.
Not up there with the greats but Gorilla Jones resume is pretty good 109 fights never KOd !
Also Cerdans only stoppage was the TKO from the LaMotta fight, pretty impresive no ?
Both had way above average chins. keep well.
