    I don't think Whyte has a bad chin.
    He just gets caught clean A LOT.
    He has the tendency to not see shots coming but if we look at both Chisora fights, he took punches that would KO 95% of HW boxers n the two Chisora fights

    That uppercut Joshua hit him with would have knocked 99% of HWs out cold.

    Yeah, Yoka's CLEARLY got a super-fragile mandible, and his handlers know it. Which is exactly why he fights such utter stiffs!

    What are you on about you crackpot? He’s fighting Hrgovic in his 12th pro fight, fought Jonathan Rice in his 2nd. One can argue that that he fought better opposition in his first dozen fights than anyone else at HW bar Usyk did in their first dozen fights.

    In Frech it's called amâchoire en verre.








    That's another way of saying glass jaw.

    Whatever language it's translated into, it is that lack of punch resistance that guarantees Yoka will be taking a canvas nap as soon as he fights a live body.

    Yoka has made a massive career mistake. I'll give him credit he's man enough to fight Hrgovic but that chin will NOT hold up. It's over for Yolk

    Maybe. I respect his moxie though. He might be one of those dudes whose heart and athleticism keeps him in the fight long after he should be taken a nap on the canvas.

    Also, not sure why everyone keeps laying into this guy. He's really not that bad at all. Almost reminds me of a more controlled, less harder hitting version of Wilder at times. He's got that same gangly looseness and whip on his shots, but he doesn't flail about and knows how to pin fighters in place to land hard crisp shots.

    :bananaride can i take a moment to talk to you about our lord and savior Oleksandr Usyk. The man to restore order in the heavyweight division. The night in shining armor, the second coming of Muhammad Ali

    Usyk’s better than Ali imo

    Ali would also school Joshua and beat everyone Usyks beaten. Usyk could very well be better but schooling Joshua isn't a high end ATG feat. Actually i think Ali stops a gassed Joshua late

    Wait, I’m not following.

    That looked like a really quick flush shot from a 200+lbs guy of course he was laid out.

    I agree, I just think Usyk is better, also Usyk could’ve stopped AJ if he wanted to
