    His chin is alright, but his defence is shocking. Stiff is an understatement. Yes his guard was ever so slightly better than against Wlad but he really doesn't throw anything except for three punches, the jab, straight right and a weak left hook and he never throws in combination. Only moves in straight lines and has lost his legs so his little in and out half steps that he used to control the distance at long range are gone now.

    This was a clearly diminished Pulev, and Pulev was already limited to begin with. Only thing that he remains strong in is roughhousing in the clinch, where he often made AJ look his *****.

    I'm kinda shocked AJ didn't take him out earlier but it seemed he gassed a little after that third round onslaught like in the Klitschko fight. Pulev was definitely the perfect matchmaking as he couldn't expose that flaw with any sort of power of note.

    Here we go, AJ couldn't tuck him away quickly, Pulev took AJ's best and smiled at him and now Pulev is a granite jawed beast.

    Same with Takam, the same Takam that Chisora knocked out.

    Same with Parker, the same Parker that Whyte dropped.

    Same as Breazeale, the same Breazeale that Wilder poleaxed very quickly and with a single shot.

    I could mention others...

    AJ just doesn't hit as hard as people think he does, he is a solid puncher but isn't a huge or devastating puncher.

    I guess his chin is ok. he has nothing else. he's an overrated punching bag with a very meager offense.
    if he cut me in line at the grocery store I would take a solid crack at his jaw just to test it myself, I would have no fear of the man.

    Think AG does land pretty hard, but when compared to Wilder. Yes Wilder can land that big windmill, to devastating effect if he's given space. If it comes to boxing ability and craft AG is a far better all-round boxer.

    Credit to Pulev tho his chin is decent took a load of uppercuts in that fight and didn't wobble

    He's definitely not glass that's a fact..

    And too be fair showed up strong for his age. AG had some good rounds and deserved the win, but Pulev he had enough about him to ask a few questions and make AG look sloppy at times. Will say tho AG is moving better these days swerved a lot of big shots. Would still put my money on Tyson when they meet if I'm honest

    Fury is so mental that he beats most opponents before the walk into the ring

    Average, though his natural response to getting hurt and his recuperative abilities are pretty good. His defence though is pure crap. In both of his defeats now he repeatedly got hit with the same shot that eventually ended his night. You've got to be a bit thick or uncaring for that to happen, surely?

    Aj is an overrated puncher but he's still a powerful puncher. Wilders power is just on another level. Pulev took a lot of devastating shots from Wladimir Klitschko before he was put down for good and wlad is what ? In the top 10 most powerful punchers in all of heavyweight history ? His chin is at least decent

    Pulev rarely gets hit often because he fights at range. He doesn't respond well to getting caught, he's been hurt multiple times. He relies on his mummy jab to throw from distance.

    Look at the follow up straight right AJ landed after the knock down. Didn’t even flinch. Iron chinned he is.
