How tall is Amir Khan

Amir Khan's Height

5ft 8 ¼ (173.4 cm)

British professional boxer, a former light-welterweight World Champion.
I'm almost 5-foot-10.
I like my height. I'm tall [5ft 10ins] for a welterweight - and I've got a long reach, which helps. I know I'm not the tallest, but you don't want to be a shortarse, really.
I am 5ft 9 and a half inches.

I've also met Amir at the Pakistani achievement awards events and he looked the height that is listed on this site, I can't see him under 5'8 nor as high as his claim so anywhere between 5'8 to 5'8.5 should be fine, nice fellow though.

@Editor Rob,

Hey Rob, Ive met Amir Khan at the PAA Event and took a picture with him, but Unfortunately, it was only a selfie and it looks like he was in a rush but I was satisfied that I met my first celeb and got a picture.

Regarding his height, I think 5'8.25-8.5" sounds about right, He was slightly taller than Javed Sheikh (who looked no more than 5'8" in person).
Amir definitely looked a strong 5'8" in person, tho his 5'9.5-10" claim is just silly.

BTW Rob, Could the original 5'8.5" listing was possible?
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 would be impossible, somewhere in 5ft 8 to 8.5 I always thought seemed more probable...that is a range I wouldn't be surprised he measured in
Johnson said on 17/Apr/19
If Amir is 5'8.25 how tall is footballer Chicharito Hernandez? They both have good pics together
Editor Rob
Nearer 5ft 7 than his listed height I'd have thought!

Exact same height as me a solid 5'8 guy. His claims are way out there. Would say at times he can look a good 66kg seems to have bulked a bit since he was younger. What would you put his weight at Rob ?
Paul Wood said on 8/Aug/18
He was often listed as 5ft 3in by the British press earlier in his boxing career, which is obviously way out!

4 inches isn't a lot bigger not really like you'll probably think your a lot bigger than me 5'10 guy but your not

Rob I think amir is 175-176 cm , I've recently been watching him on I'm a celeb and he seems taller than listed, take a look rob and tell us what you think, compared to stanley Johnson and others on the show amir seems to stack up well against them
JJAK said on 7/Oct/17
Looks a lanky long armed 5 8 very thin but not tall also too small for welterweight way too small for middleweight.
Fantastic boxer gotta stick with lower weight class and he will shine blinding speed with hands and feet.

Afy said on 1/Nov/16
My ex friend who is definitely 100% 5ft10 had a picture taken with Amir Khan and he was a good 2 inches taller than him. I'm a tad over 5ft 7 myself and I believe Amir Khan is closer to my height.
Vibram said on 20/Oct/16
If Khan is 173cm compared to staring down face to face with a legit 174cm Brook (Brook is confirmed 174cm from photo with Rob) then what is Alvarez? 172cm? I'm lost here. I have Golovkin at 176cm - that's spot on for him.
PhysicsEnemy said on 27/Sep/16
Sorry just to add, I can buy 5' 7.5" for Khan, 5' 8" for Brook and 5' 8.75" for Golovkin, but no more.

Khan looked around 0.75" taller than Canelo fwiw.
PhysicsEnemy said on 18/Sep/16
FWIW I have Khan @ 5' 7.25", Kell @ 5' 7.75" and Golovkin @ 5' 8.5".
matt said on 18/Jul/16
Kell and Khan are very similar clearly, yh agree Kell might edge him out based on the facts you said, Kell has not much hair, Khan has more hair and you said he has a slight footwear advantage, Rob has Brook a 0.25 inch taller than Khan on Here tho It might be more a good 0.5 inch.

Brook looked very close face to face with Golovkin too, Have seen Golovkin gets listed as 1.79 m which is 5'10 1/2, But its seems clear he must be somewhere in the 5'9 range
Mike said on 15/Jul/16
@anon, Khan is about 0.5 inch shorter than Kell. Kell is around 174 cm (5'8.5") and Khan is around 172.5-173 cm (5'8"). In this video you can see Kell and Khan face-to-face (staredown): Click Here (face-off starts 13 seconds into the video).

As you can see in the face-off, Khan (even with his hair advantage) is clearly shorter than Kell. You can judge from their faces. Khan's facial features (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.) are all slightly lower than Kell's.

Also, another thing to note is, Khan even has slight footwear advantage over Kell. You can see both of their footwear later in the video (starting from ~3:32). So, Khan is shorter than Kell even with a small footwear advantage.

Therefore, all of this evidence indicates that Khan is at least 0.5 inch shorter than Kell.
sully said on 15/Jul/16
Mike , will do
anon said on 12/Jul/16
Khan is like same height as Brook tho he has more hair than Kell- 5'8- 173-4 range for both is fair
Mike said on 2/Jul/16
Sully, the evidence indicates that he is closer to 5'8" than 5'8.5". Your dad might not be a full 5'8.5". You should measure his height at night time and see what his real height is.
sully said on 22/Jun/16
He's my dads second cousin. I met him thrice in my life , we stay pretty far from each other.Last time I saw him was Nov 2014 , my dad is 5'8.5" and they were exactly the same height.He is 174 cm tall no less.
Phil said on 2/Jun/16
Rob, how tall is Amir Khan little brother Haroon( a super flyweight boxer)? He looks short.
Editor Rob: no more than 5ft 5, the height he claims...
Johno said on 17/May/16
Well yeah could be 0.25-inches but i suspect Kell Brook and Rob being exactly the same height; Rob's forehead looks larger than Kell's and once you take Kell's footwear advantage away, i doubt Kell would measure taller thus, Rob could have 0.5-inches on Khan and be as tall as the likes of a strong 5'8, 5'9 guy like Oscar Dela Hoya and probably an inch shorter than GGG, maybe less. Then again, it might just be a coin toss whose taller, Rob or Kell; my money would be on Rob in a very strict measurement but they are more-or-less height twins; Khan realistically being shorter than both.
Mike said on 16/May/16
Yeah, Rob probably edges Khan out by 0.25 inches. I'd say Kell Brook is 0.25 inches taller than Rob, and 0.5 inches taller than Khan. That means Rob is 0.25 inches taller than Khan.
Johno said on 13/May/16
I suspect Big Rob would be taller than Khan and alot of Welterweights and light Middleweights.
Mike said on 13/May/16
Johno, you're right. I didn't even notice the shoes until you pointed them out. Amir's shoes do definitely add around 0.25 inches more than Kell's, and even then Kell is taller. That gives even more proof that Kell is at the very least 0.5 inches taller than Amir. So, that leads me to believe that Amir Khan is not more than 5'8" at his low. He may be 5'8.5 in the mornings, but at night he appears to be 5'8" on the dot.
Johno said on 11/May/16
I think in that video Mike, Khan has some ankle high formal shoes on.that most probably are around 1-inch and Brook is in some ~0.8-inch casuals thus the height difference is probably nearer 0.5-inches between the two. Kell Brook is most definently Rob's height.

Kell Brook 5'8-5'9
Amir Khan 5'8.5-5'7.5
Johno said on 10/May/16
Rob; Kell is your height thus he could be 5'8, 5'8.5 or near-enough 5'9 and he has height on Amir, Amir looks to be 5'7.5-5'7.5 with brook; just over 0.25-inch between the two thus, i will have to lower his estimate for myself although, i stick to the belief he could stand to measure 5'8.25 within an hr out of bed.

Kell Brook, 5'8 (evening/late afternoon)
Amir Khan 5'7.5-5'7.75 (lowest), 5'8.3 highest.
Big Rob 5'8-5'8.9
Mike said on 9/May/16
Rob, I think there is solid evidence to show that Amir is only 5'8" (not even 5'8.25"). As you know Kell Brook is 5'8.5", which is pretty accurate since the picture you took with him shows that he's around 5'8.5". And, here is a face-off/stare-down between Amir and Kell (starting at 14 seconds): Click Here

Based on that, you can see Amir is around half an inch shorter than Kell by looking at their eye level, and heads (considering Kell is bald and Amir is not). If Amir was truly 5'8.25" then he would only be a quarter inch shorter than Kell, but he's clearly more than 0.25" shorter than Kell (more like 0.5") which the video proves.

So, I think he's only 5'8" on the dot (no less, no more).

What do you think?
Editor Rob: they are quite close, 5ft 8-8.25 is the kind of range he can look with kell.

@ Junior31
You never know what kind of boost boxers have in their shows during staredowns. -> Klitschko vs. Fury


Agree. I'm in the sport myself but I'm not only gauging there weigh in or media stare downs. I'm talking in ring. And boxing shoes are incredibly thin and impossible to add a height to because it compromises the shoe and is illegal.
Johno said on 22/Apr/16
Yeh, Canel looks around 5'7.5 Junior. I believe GGG looks around 5'8.25, 5'8.5 despite being listed at 5'10. I know it would be suicide but i would love to see Khan against GGG; he had guts going for Canelo.

Andre Ward; Khan's stable mate looks around 5'11, 5'11.25 despitw being often listed at 6'0 and even 6'2 !!!!

Khan 5'8.25
Canelo 5'7.5
Tripe G 5'8.5
Ward 5'.11.25

Khan can look around the height Rob has him listed at but the thing is, Canelo is listed as 5'9 but he is nearly an inch shorter than Khan in their staredowns.

Bingo. You nailed it.

Amir khan is 1.75. Most of the time he wears flat shoes. I know him, get over it thats his height.
Armando said on 30/Nov/15
He looks 5'8 to me. I've seen him standing next to Floyd Mayweather, Danny Garcia, and Kell Brook and he looked no taller than them. Chris Algieri is a legit 5'10 bare minimum, and he was CLEARLY taller than Khan.
MD said on 17/Nov/15
@ebo, 5'7" may be a little short for him, but he's honestly not all that much taller than Zayn Malik, whom I will continue to say is not the full 5'7.5" he's listed. He's definitely not more than a weak 5'8", though, and certainly not over 5'8".
ebo said on 14/Nov/15
Honestly, I wish I took a photo with him now, I would bet my life on the guy being 5'7. I saw him in the Gatecrasher club in Birmingham a few months back. I met him in the V.I.P. section me and my girlfriend shook his hand. I'm 6'1 and the top of my head to my nose is 6 inches. He was up-to my nose exactly,he slightly shorter than my 5'4 girlfriend in heels (5'8 in heels).
Perez said on 19/Oct/15
I happen to know Amir personally, 5.9 is accurate. No less no more

Algieri is even posing with his legs futher apart. I'm telling you Amir can't be more than 5'8". I could even accept a 5'8.25" measurement, but even that would be too much to be honest.
[Editor Rob: 8.25 might be the best overall fit from what I've seen over the years.]
Dungaree said on 8/Jun/15
In this video, Amir looks identical in height to Lil Wayne. Wayne is listed as 5'5". Amir certainly doesn't look 3.5" inches taller. Click Here

This listing really is just a half-inch too high. Here he is with 5'10" Akon:

Even with the stoops and such, if anything, the other two people are losing more height. Amir is a flat 5'8".
ArjunaKorale said on 1/Jun/15
Yesterday, I saw a vid of the full fight between Khan & Chris Algieri & sorry, I was not impressed by Khan whatsoever! I even feel guilty for having bad mouthed Pac...whatever said & done, the Filipino can fight (compare & watch Pac's fight with Chrissie boy, who could never be confused with a great fighter)...I change my mind, no way should Amir get a huge payday against the world's greatest figher, Floyd Mayweather. LIKE I SAID, THIS IS NOT THE GREAT AMIR KHAN...THAT'S THE HINDI ACTOR FROM INDIA!!!

he looks more 5'9 in that picture and his dress shoes don't give him a lot of lift either. maybe he is more 5'9 and hits 5'10 in sneakers.

We'll see how much of a height different there really is between him and Algieri at the presser.

looks tall next to Scott disick (5'11)
maybe 5'9 after all
also if Hugh jackman is really 6'2 in that photo Khan is no lower than 5'9.5
Andrea said on 17/Mar/15
Rob, how can he be only 5'8.5 if Hugh is 6'1.5? I mean, he doesn't look under his eyelevel and Hugh also seems to have better posture... If Hugh is really 6'1.5, this guys looks no less than 5'9! And the funny thing is that just having a look at Amir with other guys, he really could be not over 5'8... I mean, he probably met Hugh who told him "I'm 6'2" and he thought "Hey, then i musf be almost 5'10"!
[Editor Rob: maybe just not standing as tall, but I wouldn't put Khan over 5ft 8.5]
MD said on 5/Mar/15
@Steve

I agree with 5'8" flat. I think he can look both taller than shorter than that (more usually the former), but at the end of the day he's just a solid 5'8".

BTW, it seems that Eubank is actually listed at 176cm, so not quite a full 5'10". Like I said, I think even the half-inch might be too much. More like a flat 5'8".
MD said on 26/Jan/15
@Tiger,

Yeah, someone is not listed correctly, and it has to be Amir, quite frankly. Here they both are in a more recent shot from Amir's instagram:

Click Here

Zayn is not underlisted by an inch. Even with the bad angle. It's clear to me that Amir is 5'8" flat, which is something I've been subtlely advocating. Look at the pictures I posted of him with Nick Cannon and 5'9"ish Mario Lopez, where he looks at least an inch shorter than Mario.

And u r right about Khan - he is no more than 174 cm, & not the 178 cm (5 ft 10) that some of his silly followers quote him as!
P.S. Rob, please could you do an entry for the 5 ft 7 inch Living Legend Roberto Duran - a fighter that I have actually met myself.
ArjunaKorale said on 31/Dec/14
I'm not a real fan of the boxer Amir khan (give me the Hindi actor anyday), but was v impressed with his recent wins over welterweights Luis Collazo & esp the v talented Devon Alexander! I've changed my mind about Amir - I will never love him like I love a Roberto Duran - but I'm fairly confident that he has the speed, size (he fights as a middleweight by the time he enters the ring), youth, & boxing style to severely test & ultimately beat the greatest fighter in the world today - old (38 yrs) Floyd Mayweather Jnr.
MD said on 28/Dec/14
While also being wrong about his height, you're wrong about where he's from. Wherever his parents are from, he was born and raised in England.
Cliff said on 12/Dec/14
I always believed him to be 5ft10, but that is only because I read that he was. But whenever I saw him on tv I thought he looked a little smaller than that,not necessarily because he looked small, more like he didn't look 5ft10 standing next to people. But again not that he comes across as a small looking guy.
But I always thought if he is 5ft10 why is does he find it hard to fight at welterweight like Floyd mayweather who is 5ft8? Khan has fought at light welterweight most of his career. So it seems he probably isn't 5ft10.
But anything up to 5ft9 would seem fair to me.

I like this listing for Amir. I think that he's around 174 or 175 cm & no more.Exceptionally quick boxer who doesn't always fight with his brains. Rob, how about a listing for the more handsome, gentlemanly Amir Khan (the film actor) - I think that he is only around 5 ft 6. In all respects, the film actor is also the more illustrious Amir Khan!

Vibram said on 26/Nov/13
Amir Khan was listed 5ft10 for years on boxrec website but then was listed at 5ft8, but is now listed at 5ft9. Something fishy going on. He was fraudin' Haha.

I always knew he was no more than 5ft8 (173cm) and measures 5ft9 - 5f10 only in thick trainers. Just look at him with 5ft5 Oisin Fagan, theres no more than 3 inches difference. Both are barefoot. Click Here

I could give him 5ft8.5, but it gets rounded up to 5ft9 for the boxing press and media.
teej said on 29/Sep/13
I'd say he's 5'9 exactly
Ali said on 15/Sep/13
in the picture shown above if he was standing straight he is about 5 inches shorter than 6 3 Jackman. Which puts him at 5 10. I have met him in person more than a few times. He is a legit 5 10. The other proof is that the only boxer he has face who was taller than him was Mario Kindelin. Everybody else from bradley to molina to garcia. Everyone is shorter than him. He cannot be 5 8. Its just not possible. He is the tallest one in his weight category (welterweight).
Prince said on 13/Aug/13
I met Amir and can say without a shadow of doubt that he is between 5'7" and 5'7.5" MAX.

If hugh jackman is 6"2 then Khan looks tall in this pic, 5"10 maybe. but i agree hes probably 5"8.5.
Petrolhead said on 25/Jun/13
Rob how did you come to the height of 5'8.5? It's a pretty good estimate
[Editor Rob: I think with other boxers he can look more in that range than his claim of almost 5ft 10]
rraaju said on 17/May/13
yup, i've met him - in london, in a sheesha/hookah bar. i'm a legit 5' 7" at night guy (~5' 7.5" in the morning). took a pic with khan, nobody bending over, similar footwear (regular sneakers, no nike air forces). he is precisely 2" taller than me (at night). i genuinely reckon you should upgrade him to at least 5' 9"

He only has 1 cm on Chich and he has footwear advantage, as you can see in the picture. He's wearing boots and Chich is wearing Converse type.

Surprisingly next to 6f2 Jackman he doesn't look too bad.

I think he is 173-174cm. Saw a documentary on him recently. Looked a good 4-4.5" shorter then 6f0.5/184 D.Cameron.

I was surprised but then again in his next fight he will probably be listed back at 5'10 lol. Same as Ricky hatton i have seen him listed as high as 5'7.5 and as low as 5'6 you never know what you're going to get lol fighting sports are quite unreliable when it comes to height!
gaz said on 16/Dec/12
Yeah first time i have seen him listed as 5'8.5 in a fight. The other fighter was listed at 5'5.5 and Khan did look like he had a good 3 inches on him.
gaz said on 16/Dec/12
They had him at 5 ft 8.5 in his fight tonight
[Editor Rob: good to see them coming around....]

If he's 5'9, then 5'7.75 Michael Owen is also 5'9.
Johnnyfive said on 8/Dec/12
I think he's 173cm tops. The .5 gotta go.

Rob he probably got measured at like 5"9.5 as a morning height so subtract from there!

I have to agree with Liam_mckay and John on this one! You have underestimated Khan's height a little, Rob. I think that Khan is more like 176 cm tall. MD makes a very valid comment that at Khan's weight class (140 lbs) he would look a lot slimmer if he truly was taller than 5ft 8.5inches. Well, the problem is that boxing today is a farce with weigh ins being carried out more than 24 hours before the fight itself. This means that a boxer can weigh around 139 or 140 lbs at the weigh in, but can weigh as much as 156 lbs (or more!) on the day of the fight! This 24 hour weigh in rule has been in effect only since the early 1990s. Before, boxers had to weigh in 12 or 10 hours before a fight which, in my opinion, is much fairer (some boxers can put a hell of a lot more weight on than others if they are given a full 24 hours to re-hydrate before a fight). Getting back to Khan: a good fighter, very quick with his hands and feet, but lacking any real punch resitance & more than lacking any boxing brains so as to put him way below today's elite fighters like Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao.

I don't know what picture you're looking at. Mario is clearly taller than Amir in the picture I posted, and by a good inch even with the bad angle.
Liam_mckay said on 11/Jun/12
@MD, from your picture, amir does look the same height as Mario Lopez, so I guess its right to conclude that he is 5'9.
MD said on 11/Jun/12
Nope. Rob has him right, maybe even a little generous. Here he is with a (questionable) 5'9.25" Mario Lopez and a stooping 5'11" Nick Cannon:

It's the perfect example of the Two Inch Rule, if you ask me. I never bought his height to begin with, because at the weight class at which he boxes, he's look MUCH thinner than he does if he was really 5'9.5"-5'10" fighting at 140 lbs. He really is in the 5'8" range. He's a little guy for whatever reason can come across looking as taller. Maybe, it's because the fighters in his weight class are generally shorter fighters.

@las vegas mandala bay, I met and talked to him for a while in the meet-greet session. I am a good 6 feet and he looked atleast 5'9.5 no less. Rob do u think u might have just underestimated his height by an inch?
[Editor Rob: I would be surprised if he was as tall as he claims although he could well be 5ft 9]
John said on 6/Jun/12
Met Khan a couple of times,he's about 5'9, maybe a tad taller.
