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.

Roy had a really good chin for a very long time. It wasnt until he came back down in weight that it started to go

I would have to put berto in here, marquez has a weak chin but he just never stays down, dulorme has no chin, juanma has no chin either.

You mean about juanmas chin? He had been dropped plenty of times before those fights.

Roy Jones? maybe after he went down from heavyweight....I don't care if John Ruiz was a KO artist or not, if heavyweight hits you, you feel it...and Roy got caught in that fight and nothing happened...

But nowadays? I agree with him having a weak chin. But c'mon...hes like what....60 ?

I said Roy Jones because he's still fighting. It's not an indictment on his career. It's about what he is now. As of right now, he has ZERO chin. I seriously think if I caught him with a shot, he'd go down. I NEVER fought professionally in my life and would never claim to.

You are 100% correct then. He has no business being in a ring right now

Well Salido put a whuppin on that boy twice and that has to have taken something out of him but IMO Amir Khan has a weak beard!!

Khan owns this thread

I would mention RJJ but I think his move to HW and then back down ruined him and he's never been able to recover. i often wonder how those Tarver fights would've played out if he hadn't of moved up in weight

Gamboa's chin is suspect and so is Juanma Lopez's....I guess that's what makes a fight between the 2 of them still intriguing.

Berto's chin is suspect to me
