    They both have glass jaws and they don't have punch... they look good in their fights with small weights

    You really are made of spare parts aren't you?

    Khan got destroyed on his climb before he even got a belt. Haney is an undefeated unified four belt champion.

    Khan relied on speed more than anything while Haney relies on the technical boxing aspects and his range/size.

    Practically twins.

    Khan has actually fought and beaten many prime world champions his size or bigger, Haney has literally never done that once

    Haney has a much higher boxing IQ.

    That alone will likely allow him to avoid Amir Khan's not infrequent trips to the canvas.

    Is it possible that cutting weight has an adverse effect on Hany's ability to take a punch? If he moves up and still gets wobbled, then I will classify him as glass chinned.

    While I may be in the minority, I don't view Haney as especially chinny.

    Is his chin the stuff of titanium? Of course not. But I don't think he's especially vulnerable in the mandible department.

    I honestly don't know what if any affect the weight cutting may or may not have on his punch resistance. I imagine that a difficult weight cut probably isn't helpful, but to what extent I couldn't possibly speculate.

    When cutting weight, fighters soak in a salt bath which draws out moisture. So in some cases, the protective fluid that surrounds the brain is reduced, making the brain more susceptible to shock. To your point, I too, do not know if this is the case for Haney, but if it is, his punch resistance should get better as he moves up in weight. We shall see.

    Haney hasn't been stopped or even dropped as far as I know. Khan had been sparked out by this point in his career.

    Haney clearly got better fundamentals and skill level, weird thread they’re not remotely similar

    What does this have to do with OP comparing punch resistance? Atleast respond with relevance.

    How was what I replied with not irrelevant? You make no sense

    ''They look good in their fights with small weights''

    Khan looked good against many prime world champions his size and bigger and at multiple different weight, Haney has never fought one he wasn't way bigger and heavier than

    Regarding punch resistance

    Well, Haney has literally only fought one puncher and he was badly hurt by a shot inactive shell of them who he's way bigger and heavier than. Had he fought a closer to prime active version of them he would've got his ass KO'd. In fact, he would've had the bell not come to his rescue

    I'd hang up my gloves if a shot inactive corpse half my size made me do a chicken dance
