    Getting hit with a punch you don’t see ****s people up. He has a respectable chin but not a Muhammad Ali chin.

    A glass eye sometimes, I'd say rather. Not a glass chin for sure that was one of the best of his times.

    He simply didnt see starting the blows of McCall and Rahman that knocked him out. He looked too relaxed in those bouts...all avenged though.

    No it's been done to death.
    He got cought cold by Rahman when untrained and unfit and lost to Mccall. Avenged then both and also beat notable punchers in Tyson, Vitali, Tua, Briggs, Golota.

    Thats a helluva list of opponents who can all bang and he got stopped twice.

    Those two punches would have wiped out any boxer in my opinion but would have liked to see what happened if landed on Vitali Klitschko and Joe Joyce.

    That Lennox Lewis uppercut on Vitali would have knocked many clean out and Joe Joyce loves eating punches.

    Glass? Lewis had a very solid chin. Not McCall granite solid, but solid. Anyone who went toe to toe with Mercer and a young Vitali can't possibly have a glass chin. The HW division is a peculiar one. Even an average punching HW has surplus punching power = much more power than you'd actually need to knock out cold someone so it doesn't mean a fighter has a glass jaw if they get knocked out. The McCall stoppage was controversial, and the Rahman shot was a bomb - it would have flattened anyone.

    Lennox had a hell of a chin that got smashed by two guys who could punch. Lennox was toying with Shannon Briggs, eating his punches for fun and then beating him down. That's the first example I give every time someone says he has a bad chin. Vitali hit him full power a ton of times. Tua clipped him with left hooks and overhand rights. I don't know what else someone would want to prove a chin is good.

    Joe Joyce is the crown jewel of British chins.

    Acctually Vitali really didn't land many good flush punches on Lennox. He threw alot of unbalanced arm punches to try to keep Lennox off him but most of those landed on LL's shoulders or gloves.

    Hogwash. Lennox got hit with at least 2 full power right hands each round. The fight is actually on YouTube if you want to give it a watch.
