Something tells me he just doesn't have the greatest set of whiskers. What do others think?
Why do you say that?
its Grade A
He guarded that chin last night like it was Fort Knox
this is a WSB fight from 2015 against the decent but certainly not spectacular Ali Demirezen. He was poleaxed by Savon a long time ago but I don’t know if that’s really relevant anymore. Just going off of his fighting style and how he reacts to being hit in his pro career though I think he does. To his credit though, his defense is very tight and it’ll take a pretty high level HW to exploit that weakness- it’ll be a spectacle when it happens though.
His defence is only "very tight" because he has been up against semi-name has been plodders and puddings. Christian Hammer was leading last night with left uppercuts from about 10 feet away.
To answer the question, yes.
It’s better than Whyte’s and some other top 15ish guys, got tagged quite a bit less than Ortiz against Hammer.
We don't know if it is, because he's been in against semi-name has been plodders and puddings.
I'd argue that Hammer was clearly in much worse shape against Yoka than he was 20 months ago against Ortiz. He was gassing after a minute of every round and had massive love handles, hence all of the constant, prolonged cuddling.
I think hed get stopped by Povetkin or Ortiz if they fought now
Delayed reaction equilibrium shot KD or not?
Yoka was back in action, fighting some stiff. Further evidence that he may not have the greatest punch resistance.
average chin to just below average.. dont think its glass though. his stamina/endurance is more likely gonna get him stopped at top level then his chin.
Jonathan Rice had him hurt in his 2nd pro fight, he was holding and running during the 2nd half of the fight and in survival mode. That version of Rice was also over 20 pounds heavier than the one who faced Majidov and Ajagba later on, so he wasn't exactly in great shape.
The only thing proven to be softer than a British heavyweights chin, is this French pastry Yoka’s chin.
