Glass chin or not, the term (knocked out) is often associated with a sudden traumatic loss of consciousness caused by a physical blow. Single powerful blows to the head like to the jawline and temple, can produce a cerebral concussion and cause a sudden, dramatic KO. A shot to the chin is well, a shot to the chin. You go down because of pain and surprise and you get back up.
