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.

I was always under the impression that losing all of that weight so quickly, does something to the fluid in your brain and affects your ability to take a punch. Maybe I'm off a bit. I see Julio shed a lot of weight in a short amount of time, but he isn't fighting guys like Tarver, who did shed HW lbs to get to LHW, so who knows?

he fought tarver 8 months after he fought ruiz. it could have been used as an excuse in the first fight. then the tarver rematch didn't happen 6 months after that! that's a whole 14 months from the time he fought john ruiz. that excuse is not acceptable. smh.

I wonder what weight he walked around at though, supposedly they were waiting on a Tyson fight? So he didn't drop the weight.
