Isn't there a biological explanation behind a glass jaw? Something about a nerve that sits behind your jaw bone that if shocked (as if by a punch or kick) causes you to lose consciousness? Just a slight difference in facial structure could cause that nerve to be more exposed or more protected, thus explaining why some fighters can take major hits to the face and others crumble.
Sp Brock handing on his head might not give a fefinitive answer on his jaw, one way or another.
Accually the reason people get knocked out is from their brain hitting the back of their head when puched, kicked, or bricked. It causes a shock which makes your equilibrium shut down for a moment. The only explaination for a fighter having a really good chin is having a very thick skull like that helmet James Toney has for a head. I can't believe he didn't get knocked out from those damn slegehammers he was hit with from Petters.
