    Default Glass jaws.

    Who are/were some fighters who just can't take a punch?

    Bruno didn't have a glass jaw. He just didn't know how to react. I think it was the Bonecrauher KO (I might be wrong.) , he just stood on the ropes getting pummelled and never went down. He got hit with loads of shots, just taking them defencelessly. That's not a glass jaw.

    Jumbo Cunningham hit him and his legs went to jelly.

    Well you just proved yourself wrong!!! He fucking beat Cunningham! That means he came back from being hit to win, so how the fuck does he have a glass jaw?

    Uncle Roger had some great losses by KO if there is such a thing. Very soild skills, but that chin had a built in stopwatch in it.

    Weak or glass is all how you look at it. It doesn't have to be guys who get flattened but more those who were prone to being rocked and rolled by a variety of opponents. Terry Norris comes to mind. Absolute tremendous fighter even p4p for a while but could be hurt at the most unexpected times.

    It's funny to me that Tommy has acquired the label of "Glass Chin". If you think about it he ate some hellacious bombs from Hagler and Leonard, and was stopped by both due to exhaustion as much as shot to the chin. Barely stopped him in that first fight and knocked him down a couple of times in the rematch, but Barkely was a big man for that weight, could PUNCH, and Tommy took him lightly the first time around. This wasn't a knock on you in any way, because MOST knowledgable boxing fans/observers would likely include Tommy on their list as well, but I just don't see it the same.

    Jeremy Williams, Mo Harris, Wlad Klitschko, Terry Norris, and Frank Bruno. Donald Curry, once he was beaten, lost his ability to take a punch as well.

    Williams was really a fun TV free swinger. Hurt so many times early on and always looking for the ko.

    I know I was stereotyping with my list.

    Tommy took bombs and survived wobbles but he was vulnerable as was Bruno.

    Another Tommy was Morrison, he was one punch away from a loss.
