    Wilder has height, reach, chin, speed, power, heart, conditioning, great timing , decent footwork on the backfoot great footwork when cutting off the ring he lacks discipline and fundamentals but compensates by being the most talented heavyweight in the division very underrated in all areas because he relies on talent as opposed to skills but anybody who knows boxing knows Wilder is the most talented where as fury and Ortiz are the most skilled Joshua is a stiff upright tree with no chin and Ruiz is just a fat late replacement comparable to the movie character Rocky

    How can u say Fury is chinny after the powers of recovery he showed vs Wilder?

    its like saying JJM was chinny

    I'm 100% sure both of them can't take each others power. Wilder''s chin isn't galss, but it's far from good either. VERY far

    I think it's better than AJ

    I don't think so. Wilder was hurt by Molina twice, and in one of those cases he was hurt really bad. And all the fighters that hurt Joshua hit much harder than Molina. Wilder probably has better recuperative ability though. Anyway, I think neither of them can take each others power, so it would depend on who will land first clean punch

    All have GOOD chins, 1 tier below granite chins.


    Granite chins would be:
    Dave Allen

    Glass chins

    I joke at times, but in reality - no Heavyweight should be ridiculed for being rocked or stopped by guys who are over 6ft and weighing over 200lbs... I mean, that's a lot of force!

    Regarding Wilder, and AJ...

    I can't stress it enough - When these two fight, their chins are completely 100% irrelevant.

    These guys are probably the 2 hardest punchers in the division. It doesn't even matter about who has the most power, they both hit like trucks.

    I'd bet a pretty penny that as soon as either one lands flush - it's game over.

    This fight is about who lands first, it's as simple as that.

    The difference for me, is that one of them is significantly more skilled.. which is why I back AJ to land, and win, early.

    Whatever the outcome, I don't see this fight going past 3/4 rounds!

    A third fight is irrelevant at this point .

    I for one want to see a Ruiz in good shape fight a third time. He needs to prove he is willing to get in that shape - his last camp was a disgrace

    I don't know. Fury took some pretty heavy right hands in their fight. Go back and watch it. Despite the Steve Cunningham KD, Fury has been pretty durable too. Wallin was hammering him too and he didn't get close to going down. I would say that Wilder and Fury have equal chins and that Joshua is slightly weaker (although not by much). Joshua is still pretty durable.

    Yeah Fury can take the sting out of punches which is one of his great strengths. He got knocked to the canvas earlier on in his career but fought a lot differently back then to what he does now. I don't think his chin is great, but he can ride with punches and also has great recovery powers.

    "Brazzeale who is noted for having a crisp right hand, hit Wilder in the back of the head without seriously hurting him

    This is not the sign of a fighter with a glass jaw." ? :nonono

    Out of the Big three only ONE spit his mouth piece out and quit against a fighter who has average power, ruiz aint no KO machine.

    So naturally that one has the weakest jaw as evidenced by doing his best impersonation of the marathon Man in the rematch against a completely out of shape opponent who never showed up to fight.

    Lol. You had to go back to when he was a green 6'7" 200lb beanpole amateur. He's been hit way harder by bigger men since without headgear. He was a very good chin.
