    Joshua has taking flush shots from Klitschko even when tired and when never going past 7 rounds.

    Joshua took Whytes left hook, , Povetkins and Parkers after a head butt and didn't flinch.

    Breazeale also hit him square and nothing happened .


    Fury wasn't hit cleanly with Klitschko , and walloped against lower tier punchers , he also wasn't hit cleanly against Wilder barring a left hook on his way down in the second knock down.


    Wilder has been saved by the bell twice , one was against Sconiers and the other Ortiz who hit him pretty good and followed it up with numerous shots , mostly not landing clean but still landing.

    Breazeale was his hardest puncher he fought but he didn't land anything , fight ending rnd1.


    it's pretty clear who has fought the better punchers and took the better shots. Joshua is very hard to hurt when he's prepared to take a shot , you really have to sneak one in to stun him.

    Wilder doesn't seem to react well on average and Fury has been knocked down being off balance or flat footed but I haven't seen him actually hurt by Molina type puncher s who have also rocked Wilder.

    1. Joshua
    2. Fury
    3. Wilder

    I can't imagine Joshua being hurt and knocked down by somebody like Harold Sconier. I can't imagine being floored by light punching cruiserweight Steve Cunnigham like Fury did.

    AJ has a better chin. Fury and Wilder have a equally poor chin.

    All of them can get hurt by big punchers, Joshua got badly hurt by two of the hardest punches in the heavyweight division, Wlad‘s right hand and Whyte‘s left hook.

    Fury got knocked down multiple times but he has great recovering abilities.

    Wilder seems like he has a bad chin at first glance because of his balance but he is a warrior and he can take a good punch which he has proven against Ortiz and to some extent against Fury who hit him clean multiple times.

    They all have about equal punch resistance imo.

    Partially agree with this except the conclusion. Joshua got up and recovered quicker from the Wlad knockdown than Fury did against Wilder. Fury was put down by USS BUT got up from that Wilder punch. I suspect Wilder won't be able to take those punches - am guessing he has the worst chin of the three.

    Think wilder and Joshua’s chin are very underrated. Said it loads of times, that klitschko shot was flush and he wasn’t put straight down, he was staggered and then went down when Klit went to pounce. He was then hit a load more times after that. Povetkin was catching him but never looked like going down. Wilder was getting caught by Ortiz and never went down, brezeale caught him on Saturday and took it well and carried on fighting.

    All 3 have similarly suspect chins. asking who has better chin between the three, is a bit like asking if you'd rather have cancer or another life threatening disease.

    Only true proven chin in the heavyweight division, is Mariusz Wach who has faced a combination of most powerful punchers without seeing the canvas even once. Nobody else is anywhere near as thoroughly proven as this guy in this department.

    Gotta say chin

    Joshua
    Wilder
    Fury

    Recuperative abilities

    Fury
    Joshua
    Wilder

    Fury.....well no need to prove why.

    Joshua for his comeback against Wlad and for taking whytes touch of sleep left hook flush

    Wilder
    (Based on Ortiz corruption, I think wilder was ready to go but the ref gave him that dubious time)

    And I like fury the best. Fury has been chinned twice by light hitting Pajic and USS. He changed up his style after the USS fight quite noticeably.

    Wilder, say what you want but he’s took so many flush counters from fury an never went down. He weighed about the same as USS. Proved he has some sort of chin in Ortiz an fury fight.

    Joshua took whytes and klitschkos money shots flush. Yeah he went down to Wlad but come on.....that would have felt like a sledgehammer

    Well, Wilder is the only one that hasn't been down. But he has also been buzzed more than the other two. Fury has been down the most but had only been properly hurt a few times, two of which were against WIlder anyways. AJ has been buzzed a fair few times, but only down against Wlad. So, hard to say.

    AJ's probably the best, though Fury's recovery speed is excellent.

    Wilder was knocked down hard against Harold Sconiers, who has retired with 18-27-2 (11 KOs) record.
