Recovery and havin an iron chin are two different things. Cabbage has an iron chin cos you can smash it all day and he wont get dazed or wobbly. Rich Franklin has good recovery as he will get rocked, dropped to the foor but get straight back up and fight at a high level. Recovery is more due to cardio, havin an iron chin is natural. You can make slight improvements by strengthening your neck but thats about it. There are excercises that teach you how to take a punch however. Theres 1 i like to do which seems to be quite effective. Get someone to really slowly throw a punch at you, straights, jabs, hooks, uppercuts, overhands, the lot (Do each seperatly until you get good though. When the punch is just about to hit you start movin your head to go with the punch (move your head in the same direction as the punch). Keep doing this and increase the speed slowly as you go. This is different from learning how to avoid punches and is more about teaching you to lessen the force of a punch which you cannot avoid.

Thats a very good exercise and Fedor does a similar one, he spins around for a while to make him dizzy then punches straight.

I realised I had one when I was sucker punched in the side of the head with a knuckle duster which broke a bone in my face, knocked my jaw outta place, broke my nose and completely closed my left eye. Stayed on my feet.
Holy crap, what did you do to deserve that?? (sorry for going off-topic...I really have nothing new to add to the convo, lol)

Some scumbags came up to rob my phone and I wouldn't give it. I concentrated my defence on one guy(the biggest) and paid for it. Not my proudest moment.

Learning to properly take a punch to the head will help (yes there is a proper way to take a punch to the head).

try this, after a standup routine, (bag work or whatever), when you are tired, spin around for ages, until very dizzy, then spar, you will be more susceptable to knockout, but it will test that chin

A strong chin is pretty much based on genetics. If you could just make your chin stronger, wouldn't Klitscho done it by now?
