    1) Mariusz Wach

    Rest are all irrelevant!

    Wach is the only man who stands alone in that podium. Heck, even the term 'iron jaw' is an understatement as it doesn't accurately describe Wach's chin.

    The more appropriate terminology would be 'bomb-proof' jaw or a bomb shelter or a knockout proof jaw.

    A picture speaks a thousand words:

    Andy Ruiz ate some of AJ's best shots, AJ who's easily in the top 3 for hardest punchers in the heavyweight division with 95% of his wins being via KO/TKO.
    Not only did Ruiz eat them like a Snickers; he got dropped, got up and then battered AJ to a TKO win.

    If Super Flyweights are making the list, surely Ruiz should too?

    Wach is the Chuvalo or McCall of his generation. His chin is levels above anyone else active in the game.

    Why is Danny Garcia not on there?

    He has never ever been dropped and sports one of the greatest chins in boxing today. That shot from Lucas that knocked out his mouth guard would have put so many others to sleep

    Yes, Wach took the best punches from prime Wlad who is one of the hardest punchers of all time, he took plenty of clean punches from the best (and probably roided) versions of Povetkin and Miller and he took like 1 million clean pumnches from Bakole who is a huge puncher. Bakole literally landed 15 clean power punches in a row at the end of the fight and Wach was still standing. Can't anybody name a heavyweight who could have taken 15 such punches in a row and stiil be on his feet?

    I think even Wilder with his best flush shot wouldn't put Wach down.

    Stop jerking AJ. Both Ruiz & AJ are lucky to have ever been champ, this Era is bs. It's absolutely laughable you picked AJ over Ali.

    Also that big overhand right Thurman hit him with I think in the 2nd round would've dropped most fighters.

    Regardless of the era, AJ clearly hits very hard - and Ruiz ate some of his best shots repeatedly.

    I'm confused, picked AJ over Ali? I haven't picked AJ at all lol, I picked Ruiz! I'm pretty sure this is a list of only current fighters... unless you meant Kash Ali? :lol:

    My mistake, I completely forgot about Danny Garcia, he definitely is in top 5, just for that Thurman performance where any other Welter would have been knocked out

    List seems pretty reasonable. DSG I would probably put on there, he has a real good chin. I'm unsure on Eubank Jr still at this stage. Spike hurt him and Groves should have had a couple of knock downs. Groves can certainly hit but need to see more for him before he gets on that list for me.

    I'd have Wach as number 1 personally.
