    Provodnikov = elite chin, giant dome
    GGG= 5 infinity stones level chin, not a giant but a big dome
    Canelo= elite chin, big dome and neck

    AJ= relatively small head, glass jaw
    Khan= pea head, glass jaw
    Price=relatively small head, glass jaw

    Any truth to this?

    Idk, Joshua has a thick roid neck and he folds like a cheap suit.

    Cranium size seems like the only constant variable.

    Probably. I mean everyone’s brain is more or less the same size so if your head is that much bigger, what’s in it apart from more skull or whatever protects the brain.

    I think the thick neck held, m Tyson had one and it was hard to put that man down.

    I heard Floyd's brain is the size of a Sour Patch Kid. Hence why he has the reading level of a 2nd grader.

    Rios and baldomir are other “block heads” that comes to mind with iron chins.

    Nope,taking a punch is more a combination of mental and genetic.


    Ppl's brains rattle different and some are born with thicker skulls where the brain does not rattle as much so size of head doesn't really say much 9 except Andre Giants type)


    I think a square chin /thicker jaw line DOES help.

    I doubt it. The main parts are a short strong neck and a short jaw. Plus mental toughness.

    I've always had the idea that a big head and short neck = great chin. Then somebody pointed out that Hagler had a kind of small head. My latest theory is big head + short, strong neck + crazy conditioning = great chin. This could, of course, be entirely wrong. :p

    It's just simple physics. The shorter and stronger your neck is, the less your head (and the brain inside it, hitting against the skull) reverberate after taking a punch. A short lower jaw decrease these reverberations as well.
    But how does a head size affect this..?
