Not sure if there's a thread for this already but I thought it would be cool to see you guys' responses. This one is simple. Rank your top 5 weakest chins in boxing. Here's mine:

Roy Jones Jr- I mean c'mon....ANYBODY has a shot against him, despite him being one of the most talented boxers ever, simply because when he gets hit he does the stanky leg almost immediately.
Amir Khan- I think this kid is extremely talented. Unfortunately, Roach didn't develop enough SKILL to refine that talent and years of pulling straight back when he's done punching has caught up to him. If you fart loud enough, you'll KO him.
Chad Dawson- His entire career is full of fights in which he dominates but has that one round in which he looks like Bambi on ice.
Yuri Gamboa- You'd think someone who regularly gets dropped by the finest, most ripe cherry picked opponents would utilize an ounce of defense.
James Kirkland- I put him here because I'm not sure if Jermain Taylor even fights anymore. "Twinkle toes...you're breaking my heart." For a guy who likes to mix it up, he's often caught dancing like George Jefferson when he gets hit.

Why do we make this as an excuse for RJJ? It isn't like he's the first to move to a higher weight class and then back down again, I don't believe he lost anything that he never really had in terms of punch resistance. People forget that we never really got to see RJJ's beard get tested anyway at the lower weights because he has such quick reflexes and never really got laid out and had to come back from it so how is it that one can say that going up to HW and then back down ruined his chin??

I won't make that simple excuse for RJJ, I just say we finally got to see what happens to him when he got his beard truly tapped and now we know the rest of the story.

Roy had been hit plenty of times before that and I had never seen him go down. Comes down from heavyweight very quickly and all the sudden he's getting put to sleep all the time? I dont like math but this is as simple as 1 + 1 = 2

When he trained for the ruiz fight he was forced to keep fat on and build muscle on top of it to bulk, so you can't train as hard if you want to gain weight. And when you put on that kind of muscle and body fat your body adjusts, so once he tried to come back down in weight he was forced to lose muscle (shoulder muscles, neck muscles all affect your chin not to mention muscle loss can result in slower reflexes) undoubtedly. Your body can't fluctuate in weight that much without said person feeling some effects.
