Marion Wilson (born October 19, 1956) is an American heavyweight boxer. Marion, despite having faced some of the heavyweight elite of his generation, he is perhaps best known for never being knocked out or stopped, as a result, he is considered by many to have one of the best chins in boxing, and boxing writer James Slater included him on a list of boxing's best "chins"[1] and Livefight.com ranked him as #8 in terms of best heavyweight chins ever. [2]

Professional career[edit]

Nicknamed "The Creep" and "Jackhammer", Wilson turned professional in 1989 and immediately established him as a journeyman foe for the heavyweight elite, despite a lackluster career, he has faced, and has lost to, fighters including Ray Mercer, Oliver McCall, Samuel Peter, Hasim Rahman, Andrew Golota, Shannon Briggs and Ike Ibeabuchi. One of his notable victories was against rising, undefeated Thomas Williams, who was Wilson's roommate at the time, and who is best known for being the only fighter to be jailed for fight fixing. [3] Wilson, despite losing 41 fights, also disputes any claims that he has even been knocked down or received a standing eight count in a bout. [4]
