can you upgrade him to at least 2 meter ?
tom said on 15/Apr/17
there is no way Wilder is 196cm. he is 199cm at least
Mathew Robinson said on 15/Apr/17
6'6.5" is good for Wilder. While he isn't dwarfed by Tyson Fury, he's obviously not as tall either.

I watched again the video where Fury climbs into the ring, and the difference is actually less than an inch. This is definitely the best shot to estimate their heights, both men standing tall, no bad camera angles.
When they start to shout eatchother, its hard to see the difference, cause they are bending down and moving sideways. Remember also that Fury has footwear advantage there. Im not surprised if Fury really is no moore than 201cm.

Have you not seen Fury and Wilder pictures. they met in 2013 and Fury looked 4-5cm taller. in the Ring with a heel advantage though Fury was a couple inches taller. I am Confused how you have Wilder and Fury only 0.25 inches apart. even if Wilder is 6-6.5 like i think then their is still more than 0.5-0.75. Rob i think u need to look at more pictures of Fury and Wilder Tyson Fury is listed too low. Wilder is 199cm and Fury can look a good 4-5cm taller. And if Wilder is somehow 6-7 which i think not Fury should be put in the 6-8 range. just look at him with David Price who is a massive guy himself certainly not under 6-8 1/2 and likely the full 6-9 he only looks a bit shorter like 0.25-0.5 inch not a full inch.
Editor Rob: given that Wilder was being called 6ft 6.5 a few years ago, I think it is probably reasonable to say he has rounded to 6ft 7.
Reece said on 8/Apr/17
even if Wilder 6-6.5 then i doubt Fury is 6-7 or 6-7.25. Fury would probably be at least 4cm taller. Fury looked a couple inches taller in the ring but he did have a footwear advantage of half a inch probably. in another meet up in 2013 Fury looked a couple inches taller too.seems to be more than 0.5 or 0.75 taller than Wilder.
said on 5/Apr/17
How can you only have Fury a cm taller? At the minimum he's an inch taller.
Editor Rob: I won't rule out 6ft 6.5 for Wilder.
Ollie said on 3/Apr/17
Wilder seems to be under 6-7 but not by much. Wilder is 6-6.5 to me and showtime listed him as this.
Robbe said on 1/Apr/17
@Reece, pictures you posted are terrible angles lol Wilder looks 4in taller than Lewis and 5in taller than Arreola. Cmon man..
The last picture i posted Wilder vs Kelvin Price is perhaps the best picture to judge their heights. Both men standing tall, face to face. No bad camera angles. To me Price looks taller. Once again, the camera angle on stair down (in the match) favours Wilder. Im surprised you seem not to pay any tension on camera angles when you post these links?
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Reece: I respect your opinion. However I have a strong feeling that if Wilder were "clearly" taller in the picture than Carmelo that you wouldn't be saying "we can't see the footwear" in that comparison. It's only because Wilder is shorter than Melo. Christian said it perfectly below. Melo is the same height with Gronk and Wilder is the same at best with them. They are all 6'6" guys at best strong 6'6". Remember that "most" athletes are A. Measured in the morning B. When they measure they throw a fraction on them as well. I know this much having played college ball and having former players I played with in both that level and AAU go pro. Of course there is the exception to that in many cases but it is something to remember
said on 1/Apr/17
Camerlo Antony pic we dont know who has more in footwear plus in that pic Wilder look shorter but why not post the vast majority he looks 199cm and even 6-7 their are lots of then. same with Tyson Fury. you guys do a good job of cherrypicking to prove Wilder is 6,5.5 and 6-6 and Fury is just 6-7.Click Here
Wilder towering over Lennox Lewis.Click Here
Chris Arreola who is 6-3.5 and Wilder towers over him.Wilder clearly looking taller than Washington who is 6 foot 6.Wilder looks a easy 6-7 and the vast majority of pictures.
said on 1/Apr/17
Wilder was a inch taller. Wilder is much taller than Lennox in Pictures. So now you say Wilder is shorter than 6-6.Click Here
4.13 Wilder is a inch taller when both stand straight and was the taller man.I believe Fury if he says he is 6-9 he is that in the morning and later in the day he would drop to 6-8. Downgrading by two inches gains nothing but if it makes you feel better its fine. Wilder shorter than 6-6, Fury 6-7. Wilder is listed 6-7 and Fury 6-9 for a reason they must have measured that at somepoint. Wilder is not max 198 he is max 199cm and he is taller than price all u need to do is look at the Stare down.Wilder is more than a inch and a half taller than Lennox he looks more 2.5 taller than Lennox.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 1/Apr/17
Wilder's no taller than Carmelo Anthony and Rob Gronkowski. All 3 of them are pretty much identical.
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder is ofcourse cleary taller than Lennox Lewis who claims to be 6'4.5"
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
I agree with everything you said Robbe. I'll give wilder the benefit of the doubt and say he's Melo's height tops. Fury as 201 maybe 202 and Wlad 195.5-196.5
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder wasnt an inch taller than Kelvin in their fight. Kelvins boxing style is quite funny, his legs are spread wide open when he fights, so he looks shorter than he is. And all the pictures i have seen, Kelvin is taller than Wilder. Including the pictures you have posted. Kelvins head is tilted down, and he is still hair taller than Wilder. Wilder is max 198cm.
Paul said on 31/Mar/17
@Reece. how tall do you think Fury is? he looked near identical with David Price
Reece said on 31/Mar/17
What about Wilder looking clearly taller than Lennox Lewis or him looking much taller than Washington and Nicolas Furtha? Their are loads of pictures of Wilder looking 6-7? Well I guess we all have our own opinions. All you need to do is look a Fury tower of 195-196cm Charles Martin and see him keep towering over tall guys like his Cousin Hughie who some people keep calling 6-4 to figure he can't just be 6-7. Vitali Kiltschko is the best example of a 6-7 and Fury is obviously taller than him a Fury was near him after he beat Wlad.
Reece said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder was a inch taller in their fight Kevin was listed as 6-6. So one picture of Wilder looking shorter means he is 6-6. When in most pictures he looks a strong strong 6-6 or even 6-7. Every boxer seems to lieing. As for Fury being 6-7 that is pure downgrading.Their is more chance he is 6-9 than 6-7 by far.
said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder is definitely shorter than Kelvin Price Click Here
Im not sure how tall Kelvin Price really is, he is listed both 6'6 and 6'7. Anyway, Wilder is not 6'7, that's plain obvious. If Kelvin Prise is 6'6", then what is Wilder?
There are many pictures of Wilder and Fury together, but its really hard to say how much taller Fury is due to bad camera angles. In the ring difference looked around 3-4cm, but Fury had heel advantage. In my opinion Fury is max 3cm taller than Wilder, so that makes Fury 202cm. But if Wilder is 198cm, like i think, Fury is no moore than 201cm.
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
I agree with you Christian. He is over listed. Maybe he's a full 6'6" but wouldn't surprise me if he's 6'5.5 or 197-197.5 tops. That would make him 6'7" in shoes. But here on this site it's well he claimed 6'7" so so and so must be 6'8" since he's taller.
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
@Reece: yes not everyone upgrades but many do. I believe Wilder is Tho. He was shorter than Carmelo Anthony was or at most his height. Melo is a full 6'6" maybe 6'6.25 I'd say somewhere in the middle. Fury i don't know but I trust Rob. I don't go off what other "supposed" 6'7s are listed. I can look at him next to Wlad who is honest about his height and claims 6'5" because he knows he is
Reece said on 30/Mar/17
i meant taller than Vitali not Tyson lol
Reece said on 29/Mar/17
@Canson.Well it is a downgrade. not every boxer lies about their height but some could do. Fury is taller than 6-7 guys so he cannot be just 6,7.25. and if he is taller than 6-7.5 Ustinov who himself is taller than Tyson Fury then he cannot be just 6-7.25.Upgrade is what Fury likely should be.
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
Reece I agree on Aj when it comes to Nick but how is someone downgrading the other guy Fury when Rob has him 6'7.25/.5 already. That's not downgrading him. You're upgrading him instead.
Canson said on 27/Mar/17
@Robbe: agree and I've met Carmelo Anthony. I'm 194cm (more precisely 193.9 normal low) and he's at absolute most 2" taller and it's actually more 1.5-2". I'd say he's nothing below 6'6" and no more than 6'6.25
said on 27/Mar/17
Carmelo is not standing properly there either, like said. Audley Harrison looks like an inch shorter than Joshua, who is probably 197,5cm. So that makes Harrison 195cm Click Here
On the other hand, Harrison was pretty much the same height as Wilder in the weight in Click Here
which was quite surprising. There are many pictures of these men in the net, sometimes Harrison looks taller, Sometimes Wilder.
In the fight i couldn't notice any difference between these fighters. Both looked the same height. It would be interesting to see Joshua and Wilder face to face. They are probably pretty much the same height.
Reece said on 26/Mar/17
Keyed pic Wilder is leaning on the guy so he is not standing up straight. Wilder was taller than Audley Harrison who looks like a really strong 6-5 or 6-6. Harrison did not look under 6-6 with Haye. Wilder 6'6.5 to 6-7. Showtime had Wilder as 6'6.5 that seems accurate. Wilder is a good bit taller than Lennox Lewis he looked the full 6-7 with Lennox. Just because Wilder looks a bit shorter in one pic doesn't mean he is not 6-6.5 or 6-7. People love downgrading on this site. Especially to Tyson Fury and AJ
said on 26/Mar/17
Im not sure if Wilder is even 6'6.5". He looks shorter than 6'6.25 (198,7cm) listed Carmelo Anthony. Its possible Wilder is flat 6'6".
Carmelo is not even standing tall there, his posture is quite bad. On the other hand he is closet to the camera. Also we dont see the footwear their wearing. My quess is anyway flat 6'6" for Wilder after seing this pic.

@Andrew. Wilder is not standing properly.Click Here
Wilder looks the full 6-7 here and i think kelvin price is listed 6-6 lClick Here
. Wilder cannot be less than 6,6.5
Reece said on 17/Mar/17
@Kyle. exactly. Fury is under listed on this site.he isnt under 6-8
Kyle said on 16/Mar/17
I think wilder could be anywhere in the 6 6.5 6 7 range fury is more 6 8 looks taller by more than a quarter inch
What about hughie fury i think 6 5 for him and con sheehan maybe is close to that mark also
boxing fan said on 11/Mar/17
Wilder looks 6-7 legit look at pictures with Lennox Lewis and most other boxers. he could be a bit shorter like 199-200cm but no way is he under.
said on 3/Mar/17
sorry Jordan.Click Here
here at 1.29.42 it should work now!
said on 2/Mar/17
Wilder needs a downgrade, he is 6'6.5", just like Robert Helenius.
Jordan87 said on 1/Mar/17
The Link you Provided has nothing to do with the Content you are talking about.
Jordan87 said on 1/Mar/17
Wilder has better in Ring Movement than Fury although I'm not sure I think it would be a tough fight. As far as Fury's physique goes he looks like a slob but sometimes that could be misleading.
Fury Is a bit taller than Wilder, and Wladimir obviously has something in his head about his height, b/c he does where lifts of some sort. Weird. If I were Wlad I would be more insecure about my age, then my height. Wlad is getting old, and the Young Buck Joshua is going to thrash him in a few rounds. Young beats Old most of the time, especially in combat sports.
said on 26/Feb/17
Rob,how do u have Fury,Wilder and Vitali the same height? Fury was a couple inches taller than Wilder when he jumped in the Ring to call him out. he did have half a inch edge footwear. i would Fury as 6,8.5 or the full 6,9 that should probably be the real debate. Wilder is 6,7 for sure he was taller than 6,6 guy and yesterdays Fight. Click Here
1.29.42 to be exact you can see Fury is talller than 6,6 billed Wlad and Hughie. and you can see he is taller than 6,5 billed Lennox Lewis and 6,7 billed V Kiltschko.look over a Vitali then back at Fury. they both cant be 6,7 guys if Fury is taller. Fury is a legit 6,8.5-6,9 guy.Wlad has made every body think Fury is 6,7 due to his Lifts making him appear 6,8-6,9 tall in press confrences 2-3 inches extra. thats likely why Wlad always wears dresser shoes,so he can fit lifts in his shoes.Wilder looks to be 6,7 and so does Vitali but based on the evidence i just posed i think Fury should be upgraded to at VERY Least 6,8 that is the lowest even though he looks taller than that to me.
said on 22/Feb/17
Here's Kelvin Price and Wilder. Both listed at 6'7" yet Wilder looks shorter by a significant margin.
Reece said on 18/Feb/17
they were both standing the same way,look a H2H their is about 1.5 inches their.
Jam said on 18/Feb/17
He was listed at 6'6.5 by Showtime in the Stiverne fight
Height Master said on 18/Feb/17
Wilder is 6,7 and looks it
Dan said on 17/Feb/17
Reece...in the pic you provided the height difference between Klitschko and Wilder isn't even an inch. Klitschko isn't even standing as straight either.
anon said on 17/Feb/17
Fury might be being underselled on here if anything, I wouldn't put money on Fury measuring under 6'7.5 with any certainty, Its Possible Wilder is 6'6.5 but no lower for me.
Zahid said on 16/Feb/17
Easily an inch shorter than Tyson Fury.
said on 13/Feb/17
Wilder is not under 6,7 Exorcist. Click Here
this is a picture of Wilder with Wlad Kiltschko.Wilder looks at least a 1.5 inches taller here. 6,7 is perfect for Wilder 199cm is too short. Hughie is a tall guy,at least a Strong 6,5 and maybe the full 6,6. and Tarinator Wilder and Fury have stood together,Fury is 1.5 inches taller. Fury had a couple inches of him in the RING but he had a half a inch in shoes so 1.5 inches is perfect.
The Exorcist said on 13/Feb/17
Shorter than 6'7", but taller than a flat 6'6".
Hughie Fury is a strong 6'4"/weak 6'5"
Tarinator said on 12/Feb/17
Deontay Wilder would stack up pretty well against Tyson Fury who is 6'7.5". Both very tall if not giant guys. Looks 7.5 inches taller than me to be exact.
Reece said on 11/Feb/17
To Anon. I think Hughie Is 6,5.5 and his 6'6 is rounded up but yes he is large but Tyson Fury Has 3 inches on him. And to anon the other one their is 2 of you lol i thought it was the same person. The Fight is the best example you will get Fury has 3 inches on Wlad for sure look at the touch glove. But I agree 6'7 or 6.725 is too low.
Anon said on 11/Feb/17
To the other 'anon', there is absolutely no chance that Hughie is 6'4''. He looks enormous in person. Easily around 6'6''.
anon said on 11/Feb/17
Ok fair enough Reece, I haven't studied it too much will have to check out more, Will Be Interesting if these guys fight each other though, Tyson Fury is down as 6'7.25 on here though I also think he is being a tad underlisted, face to face shots at press conferences mean nothing when you have Wlad wearing lifts in his shoes, people get skewed estimates basing everything off of those type of things.
Reece said on 10/Feb/17
anon I counter that. 6'7 is still too short. Wilder is 6'7 and he looks it. Fury is at least 4cm taller than Wilder in their 2013 face off he had 1.5 inches on him. He had 2 inches when he jumped in the Ring Jan 2016 but he had half a inch in footwear. Hughie is af least in the 6,5 range and is slightly taller than Lennox. Fury is 6'8.5. If Fury is 6'7 then Wilder is 6'5.5 and Wlad is 6'4 still too low. 203cm at least. And if Fury is 6'6.5 then Wlad is 6'3.5 and Wilder 6'5. See how deluded that looks.
anon said on 10/Feb/17
There is not much chance Tyson Fury being anything under 6'7 That just seems too low from Looking at him, Id give Wilder 6'6.5
Hughie Fury is interesting, He can Look 6'4 range he not 6'6, Be Interested to see him face to face with His next opponent 6'4 listed Joseph Parker, Parker could be close to 6'4 also looking at some pics with Wladimir Klitscko.
James said on 9/Feb/17
Am I the only one who thought he was a dwarf in the picture? Haha. In the picture he gave me the impression of being 5' 4" or 5' 5" at most.
Reece said on 9/Feb/17
Fury 6,6? this has to be joke. Fury is not under 6,8and any who thinks so has no idea about height and is deluded. Fury is at least 1.5 inches taller than Wilder and Wilder is not under 6,7. Fury also is much taller than Hugie Fury who is nothing less than 6,5.5 and Claims 6,6.
said on 9/Feb/17
Finally....! But I think this guy drops under 200 cm around midday or so. 199, 6'6.5. Yeah, he's definitely no Vasyl Lomachenko, but he has tremendous reach and power and fights pretty akwardly, and isn't the slowest aswell.
Editor Rob: 6ft 6.5 is an arguable listing.
said on 9/Feb/17
"Deontay Wilder's Height is 6ft 6in (198.1 cm)"
He's easily over 6 inches shorter than Shaq Click Here
and Tyson Fury has at least 3cm on him. Click Here
I was a bit surprised by the 6ft7 listing you gave Deontay, Rob.
Cvgo95 said on 9/Feb/17
@Josh Jeffords. He's a dreadful boxer. Just hits extremely hard. Fury would out-box him with ease.
Josh Jeffords said on 8/Feb/17
Amazing boxer not seen him really tagged but looks tall and rangey.
Anything over 6 5 is dubious especially at that weight.
He needs to smash tyson fury and Russian and then can claim anything he wants.
Harrysachs said on 8/Feb/17
Jordan87 Lennox Lewis is 6'3 1/2? Amazing since he was measured barefooted at 6'4 3/4. If Lewis was 6'3 1/2 then he would only be 1/2 inch taller than guys like Foreman who was measured at 6'3 230 at a 19 year older. Lewis is clearly almost 2 inches taller than Foreman.
Joshua is 6'6, Wlad is basically 6'6
Kaneff said on 8/Feb/17
Anon said on 8/Feb/17
Fury 6'6.25? What are you smoking? He towered over Klitschko (in the ring, not at the conferences when Klitschko wore lifts), towers over his cousin Hughie, Nicolai Firtha... All of whom are 6'6''.
Wilder looks a good 6'7''. Hard to see him lower than 200cm.
Reece said on 8/Feb/17
Very tall guy. i doubt Wilder is under 6,7.
S.J.H said on 8/Feb/17
Anthony Joshua 6'5
Deontay Wilder 6'6
Tyson Fury 6'6.25
David Haye 6'1.25

I hope him and anthony joshua come face to face sometime soon then we can compare the difference between them both.
said on 8/Feb/17
How tall does he look here? Remember Undertaker-Khali photo he was same as shaq
anon said on 7/Feb/17
Wilder could be about 6'6.5 who knows, Be Interesting to see him next to Anthony Joshua, Good chance those two giants will cross path at some point
Mathew Robinson said on 7/Feb/17
Fury has got him by a bit more than just a quarter inch imo
Realist said on 7/Feb/17
He looks about 6'7 and 220

Great pic, More. Carmelo was measured 6'6.25" as a rookie. Though footwear is unknown.
Jordan87 said on 7/Feb/17
More Nice Find. Mello was measured at 6'6.25" without his Shoes on and Wilder looks a bit shorter.
Joshua looks 6'4.75" on this Site.
W. Klitz 6'5.25"
Lennox 6'3.5 ( More than An Inch Shorter then Joshua)
