@ROB
I think AJ really has a very low eyelevel for his height just look at how tall Obama was looking next to him i mean if we never knew that Obama was 185 cm ,looking at that picture againg Obama look almost 6ft3 really weird.... Click Here
Robbe said on 5/Sep/19
Ruiz is easily 3in shorter than 6'3 listed Joseph Parker Click Here
Mickie said on 27/Aug/19
Would be interesting to see how AJ and Wilder compared height wise. Maybe some day they'll have quality photos together
Canson said on 24/Aug/19
The listing looks correct for the most part. He doesn’t stand as tall next to Idris Elba as Carmelo Anthony does but that’s probably only 0.5” or .75” difference. AJ Maybe 6’5.5 but not any less

Hi Rob .. You took a photo with Joshua yourself so why not say how tall he is
Editor Rob
Well he definitely looked taller in person than rory mccann I felt, but then I had about similar shoes to mccann, whilst joshua had a big fraction more footwear. I really think 6ft 5.75 is a fair mark, I would think he measures near that range.

Ruiz is 6'0" flat

-----------------------------------------


I think so too but the pic you linked is not a good indicator for that

this pic is better : Click Here

unfortunately they both dont stand straight on this pic either though

Ruiz is barely taller than Odell and Jimmy Kimmel who are both around 5'11.25
Frost said on 14/Aug/19
Ruiz is 6'0" flat

Click Here

Cody Garbrandt is at most 5'7".


Odell is 5'11.25" with bad posture and slides.
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Ellis: I could agree with that measurement honestly. That’s probably his low however. And I can agree with it because he’s barely taller than Klitschko and even a guy like Steph Curry doesn’t have look much shorter at 6’1.5 probably at a low.

@Junior: I doubt Davies is still 6’8”. He and AJ look Similar but not sure how much camera and posture play in there
Mickie said on 8/Aug/19
@Ellis - but did they really measure him at the Olyympics, or just describe him as that height?
Ellis said on 6/Aug/19
He did measure 6'5.5 at the olympics, I believe that was in 2012, so he was roughly 22-23(22) considering he was born in October. Because of this, I highly doubt he grew anymore after that. He is 6'5.5 at a low.
Canson said on 4/Aug/19
@Christian: that is more than 3”. If he’s really 6’0” Merriman would be close to 6’4”. His height is all over the place
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Aug/19
Honestly if AJ is 6'5 1/2 at a low then Greg Davies had zero chance to be 6'8.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Aug/19
@Viper
That's more than just a 3" difference. Merriman's leaning while Ruiz is standing straight.
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
@Christian: I agree with everything you said!
Canson said on 31/Jul/19
@Christian: 6’5.5 is possible for him especially with the footwear advantage on Rob. It’s similar with Undertaker. I can’t see Taker lower than 6’5.5 and really believe he’s more 6’5.5-6’6 but that’s possible for him just as 6’6” is the absolute max to me but AJ I don’t give a possible 6’6” max to. I think 6’5.75 zone is the most. He didn’t look much taller than Klitschko
Canson said on 31/Jul/19

6-2 measured Shawne Merriman with Jake Paul. Click Here

Don't know If Jake is 5-9 range but he's certainly 5-10 max
184guy2 said on 29/Jul/19
Under 6'5.75 is pretty unrealistic ... that would make Zlatan not over 6'4
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jul/19
@Canson Did you see Greg Davies with 6'0 Ryan Gosling that i posted? Gosling make him look more 200cm than 6'8. But i think Greg could have secretly drop an inch from his back. AJ could be this listing a low but Greg i have long suspect he is a little weak 6'8 so 6'7.75".
Greg said on 28/Jul/19
@Mickie If Andy Ruiz is 6’0-6’0.25” that would make Jake Paul 5’9 range, He can’t be the 5’10.75” he’s listed unless Ruiz was nearer 6’2, I don’t buy his 6’2 listing at all, I think he’s rounding up morning and claiming shoes as well. Jake posted a photo with him on Instagram and he looks around 3ish inches shorter, so if he’s a weak 6’1 that would make Jake a weak 5’10, I’m guessing him around 5’10 range as he can often appear taller in photos. Footwear is believed to be equal too.
Mickie said on 27/Jul/19
AJ at 6'5.75" seems right on the money.
c-mo said on 27/Jul/19
@Mickie

183-184cm is possible for andy (especially 183cm) but 182cm is more likely and I already broke it down very accurately I dont know how you can still argue against it . everything points to andy being rather 182cm instead of 184cm

lets settle him at 183cm . that should be a good deal
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Jul/19
6'5.5" but not lower than that.
184guy2 said on 25/Jul/19
Andy Ruiz is 100% not over 6' flat
Canson said on 24/Jul/19
@Junior: I have him at about 197.5 at a low. Rob’s listing now looks good
Mickie said on 24/Jul/19
FWIW I continue to maintain Andy Ruiz is a solid 6' guy unless he's also slipping in some lifts. Click Here

Ruiz is 6'1.5" in shoes next to Anthony Joshua. That makes 183 - 184 cm range far more likely than 182 cm or below (unless he's wearing lifts). I also really think the Odell Beckham pics suggest 183 - 184 cm rather than 182 cm or less.

Anybody can look taller or shorter in a photo, but my guess for Ruiz overall is 6'0" - 6'0.25". Maybe 6'0.5" at best. Certainly not anything like the 6'2" he's billed at.
Alex 6'3.25 said on 23/Jul/19
197 cm for sure
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jul/19
Click Here Not over 5cm shorter than Greg Davies. Both are standing straight. Either AJ is what he claim 6'6 and Greg stay 6'8 or AJ is what Rob given 6'5 3/4 and Greg push 6'7.75" and if AJ a low is 6'5 1/2 then Greg is only 6'7 1/2 (which is what i suspect Greg look with 6'0 Ryan Gosling) Click Here 6'8 is too difficult here an 6'7 1/2 a bit dangerous but maybe Ryan head a little advantage to camera, from here Richard Osman will pushes down to his 6'7 claim but still on the 6'7 1/8 (201cm) absolute low since there is only 1cm between Greg and Osman. AJ is probably given a late morning 10.30-11.30am height at 6'5.75".
Canson said on 13/Jul/19
@Robbe: Michael Jordan is nowhere near 196cm at a low. He’s 194. Probably was around 194.5 at best during his prime. He was 6’4.5 when he was drafted. Rob has him overlisted. Also the pic with Jordan and Obama is exaggerated. When Obama is putting the metal on Jordan’s back it’s not even 4” between them. More 3.5-3.75 tops
c-mo said on 11/Jul/19
I just want to give even more proof that Andy Ruiz Jr is around 182cm . not that the photos I posted below with Jimmy Kimmel etc. are not enough ....but here we go :

Denis Bakhtov is listed as 181cm

take a look what he looks like next to joshua


Click Here

Click Here

Click Here


Click Here


Andy with Anthony :

Click Here

Click Here

--

as you see Denis Bakhtov and Andy look close in height pretty much . lol . if you want to argue that Bakhtov might wear shoes while AJ might be barefeet (which I doubt . but you never know) . EVEN THEN ....the shoes would give roughly 2cm which would put Bakhtov at 183cm ....so even in that case Ruiz wouldnt be above 183cm . ...he is listed as 181cm but that might be his morning measurement or his height in boxing shoes or his own guess what he is without getting measured ...he might 180 or maybe even 179cm .... as we all know a lot of sportspeople and actors can be overlisted . even though 181cm seems spot on for Denis Bakhtov to me

so it is pretty obvious that Ruiz Jr is around 182cm . my guess is he is 182cm in the evening . everything points to that ....look all the photos I have posted including with Jimmy Kimmel and Odell etc. and now these pics with Denis Bakhtov on top of it . how can anybody argue that Andy ruiz is taller than 6'0 ? some are even arguing 185cm . you got to be kidding .....185cm is absolutely impossible . 184cm is very unlikely . 183cm is possible . and 182cm is most likely .
Andrea said on 11/Jul/19
It's indeed about the camera angle, Robbe. As I said, when the camera is so high (or low in the opposite case) it's very easy to enhance or reduce the true height differences...
As you can see here (from the same exact event), there isn't (wasn't) such a big difference between them: Click Here
Robbe said on 11/Jul/19
AJ looks slightly shorter than 195cm Kobe Bryant, which cant be the case.

Click Here

AJ looks also shorter than 196cm listed Michael Jordan.

Click Here

Obama looks barely 185cm with Bryant and Jordan, but with AJ he looks a strong 188cm. He might be using an inch lifts with he's shoes there.
Canson said on 10/Jul/19
I highly doubt President Obama wears lifts. But it just shows that someone can look taller or shorter based on the pic that they are in. 6’4.5 Charles Barkley looks as tall as a 6’7” “listed” guy on SNL because of the “different” camera angle and people use that as evidence that he is really 6’6” and downplays his height. That’s if the guy is barefoot 6’7” to begin with
Canson said on 10/Jul/19
@Ellis: he isn’t less than that and that could be his extreme low. He may be more 6’5.75 like Rob lists him
Robbe said on 10/Jul/19
@Andrea,surely you noticed Obama is looking down at Clinton? You dont do such thing if your not noticeable taller than your opponent. So its not about the camera angle. Also, if you read the comments on the video, many others thinks the same, Obama must be wearing lifts there. He looks huge!
Ellis said on 9/Jul/19
AJ is 6'5.5.
Andrea said on 9/Jul/19
How is that clip supposed to prove that Obama wears lifts? LOL
The only reason why Obama SEEMS so much taller than Clinton (especially in those screenshots) is because it's being taken from a high camera angle, which naturally favours the guy who is standing behind, so Obama in this case.
As for Anthony, he doesn't look over 6'5 in that pic with him, yeah, but I doubt it's because Obama's wearing lifts. It could be a lot of things... I mean, even with Rob, he looks closer to 6'5 than 6'6 (once you take into account his footwear advantage), though Rob seems pretty convinced he's nearer 6'6 than 6'5.
Alex 6'3.25 said on 6/Jul/19
Jesus Obama wear lifts for real, no way he was that tall next to Joshua and Clinton.
Robbe said on 6/Jul/19
Obama wears lifts sometimes, like in this clip back from 2012. Just the way how clumsy he walks, tells he's wearing lifts. Not to mention the height difference.

Lol at these screen shots Click Here Click Here
pov said on 4/Jul/19
Ive seen a photo with AJ and Obama recently, and Obama looks over 6’1. The top of his head is over Joshua’s eyebrows. He looks around 6’2.5/6’3. Rob do you think Obama could be an elevator shoe wearer? No way 6’1 guys look that tall next to 6’5.5/6’6 guys
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have ever thought he'd be the kind of gentleman to wear lifts
Jordan87 said on 3/Jul/19
Callum Perry,

While Dillion Whyte is one of my favorite boxers ( I think he is the most honest one out there), I was not surprised when I saw he didn't have a page. He is not very popular by other folks although I would like him to be.

Dillion for the Record admitted he was 6'3" in a recent podcast. He never looked over 6'3 with Joshua, He actually at times looked 6'2-3/4".
Nik said on 26/Jun/19
@ Rob - Why does he look under 6'5.75" on the height chart?
Editor Rob
Some folk can look taller/shorter by fractions, like with Obama, I don't think Joshua looked almost 6ft 6 either.
Canson said on 26/Jun/19
@Mickie: I agree with you
Canson said on 25/Jun/19
@Rob: if he measured that mark at a low then he could get that listing here? My afternoon and evening don’t really vary
Editor Rob
I think overall his current listing is fine.

Gman39 said on 24/Jun/19
@Mickie
Andy edges Odell in that pic. There are some things at play in that pic; possible skew to the right, different footwear and postures. But if I was a betting man I would say Ruiz would edge Odell.
c-mo said on 24/Jun/19
odell is 181cm and is leaning and ruiz is only a little taller . so ruiz is 182cm

kimmel is also leaning a bit and ruiz is only slightly taller . so ruiz is 182cm

ruiz is around 182cm . rob it is obvious . if you list ruiz please list him as 182cm . 6'0 flat would be okay too and still realistic but anything above is unrealistic . obviously
Robbe said on 24/Jun/19
Ruiz is a bit closer to the camera, and standing at his best, while Kimmel is standing very relaxed, slightly further away from the camera. Yet they look very close in heights. That should indicate Kimmel is the taller one. But it's hard to judge just by one picture. Cumberbatch looks indeed taller than Ruiz, compared to Kimmel. But then again, i find it very hard to believe Ruiz is under 182cm.
Mickie said on 23/Jun/19
@eveyone not c-mo: Do Odell and Andy look the same height here?? Click Here

I think not!
Editor Rob
He could be somewhere around 6ft range there, I'd say the background shows the camera is knocking height from the right side compared to the left, which might be evened out with better posture, more sneaker.
Dream said on 22/Jun/19
Rob, do you think AJ would qualify for 6’5 7/8” more so than 6’5 5/8”?
Editor Rob
I would expect he had a better chance of measuring nearer the 7/8th...but maybe at night he falls to 6ft 5.5-5.75 zone.
c-mo said on 22/Jun/19
Mickie wtf man ...what YOU are saying is crazy lol

@others . who do you agree with ? I am saying that kimmel and ruiz look about the same height ...especially taking into account that kimmel is leaning a bit . while Mickie says ruiz is taller


how is he taller ?

Lanky said on 22/Jun/19
My bad - just noticed that photo has already been posted to death! Definitely wouldn’t say Joshua looks 6’6” range in that shot though.

Good shot of AJ side-by-side with 6’1” Obama.

Mickie said on 21/Jun/19
@cmo - Ruiz was taller than Kimmel and Odell. I'm not kidding. The fact that you think he looks the same height as Odell is crazy to me. You could argue there is a footwear and posture advantage for Andy, but I can't fathom how it was useful to your case of Ruiz being Odell's height. Having said that, I don't think your guess is that bad. I would go more 6'0 - 6'0.25 than less though.
Canson said on 21/Jun/19
He looks a weak 6’6 with Klitschko
Robbe said on 21/Jun/19
Andy is struggling to hit even the 5'11 mark compared to Obama.

So the Obama pic is not telling the thruth. Joshua is probably not standing straight there.
Kevoz said on 20/Jun/19
Latest pic of Anthony Joshua with Obama Click Here, both of them with great posture,if Obama is 185cm Joshua looks 195cm there..what do you think rob?
Editor Rob
Yeah Joshua doesn't look near 6ft 6 that moment (and more 6ft 5ish), but in person I'd never go as low as 6ft 5-5.25 for him, he's too tall for that range.
Robbe said on 20/Jun/19
As you can see from the height chart above, AJ:s eyeline is pretty much bang on 6'1. Andy is far away from that line.

Click Here

Im leaning to 182cm for Andy. Earlier i thought 183cm could be possible, but that gap looks more than just 2cm.
c-mo said on 20/Jun/19
Mickie are you kidding .....there is not much difference between him and kimmel obviously . they are almost eye to eye and kimmel is leaning a bit . whats going on lmao

Emil...parker looks about 190cm to me . there is a pic of him with tgson somewhere .

ruiz is a 182cm night guy to me with a possibility of 183cm . nothing more than that . 184cm I would be surprised about and 185cm is impossible . from what I see even the possibility of him falling to 181cm at the end of the day is higher than 184cm . but I think 182cm or a bit a bit above is right on the money

Andy Ruiz Jr height : 5 ft 11.75 in or 6 ft 0 in
Boxing fan 07 said on 18/Jun/19
If you compare Fury and Wladimir’s fight to, Joshua and Wladimir’s fight. Fury is considerably taller than Wlad. While Joshua only looks 0.25 - 0.5” taller than Wlad.

To be fair Wlad was crouching most of that fight. But still Fury has a good 2” on him. So Joshua is around 6’5 .5
Mickie said on 18/Jun/19
Also worth noting is the Ruiz Parker video c-mo posted looks like it's on a sloped sidewalk favoring Parker.
Mickie said on 18/Jun/19
@c-mo - if you think he's the same height as Kimmel, I'd suggest you might need a stronger prescription than I.

Could Ruiz be 5'11" and a bit? Yes, but I think he must be slipping in lifts if he is. Because next to Parker and Joshua at the weigh ins, he's looking a strong 6'1". Even if Joshua and Parker are shoeless (I'm not sure if Parker was, but Robbe said so) You're not getting 2 inches from a pair of normal shoes with no lifts.

Where I do agree that a flat 6 foot nothing is within the realm of possibility.
Emil said on 18/Jun/19
@c-mo

If you look at the weigh-in photos of Joshua and Parker you can see that he's 4 inches shorter - but Parker was probably barefoot and Joshua was wearing footwear - still, I wouldn't put Parker at more than 6'2-6'2.5.

Ruiz is somewhere between 5'11.5-6'0, and 6'0 is very unlikely imo
c-mo said on 17/Jun/19
@Mickie

first of all how is he "clearly taller" in the odell pic ? odell has houseshoes on which are are a little thinner than ruiz shoes and on top of it odell is leaning ...and yet ruiz is only a little taller . you might need glassed bro no offense

2. when I measure from that part of my nose to the tip of my head I get roughly 16cm and anthony joshua most likely has a longer head than me ...so it is around 16cm . which would make ruiz 182cm

3. your video doesnt show their footwear . and there are many pics which show that parker is a lot taller

Click Here

Click Here

however I dont think those pics are representative either

here on video with joseph parker : Click Here

ruiz looks similar next to parker how I look next to my 184cm friend . I am 176cm in the evening ...so roughly 8cm difference to my friend and if parker is 191cm and you subtract 8 cm you get about 183cm for ruiz . and I even think parker could be 190cm instead of 191cm

and also as I showed you ruiz looks around the same height as 181cm jimmy kimmel

as I said everything points out to ruiz being around 182-183cm . I dont think he is 5'11 flat ..thats not possible . he could be a full 6'0 ...MAYBE ....MAAAAAAYBE 6'0.25 but that is already a low chance imo . I think he is 5'11.5 - 6'0 no more no less
Emil said on 17/Jun/19
Joseph Parker isnt a legit 6'3 - he's 6'1.5 at best
Mickie said on 17/Jun/19
Like I mentioned before - if Ruiz has been slipping in lifts then I can believe it's possible. If it's just normal shoes, then I'm seeing closer to 6'. Maybe he does wear lifts, he wouldn't be the first.
Gman39 said on 17/Jun/19
@Mickie
I can confirm Ruiz had his sneakers back on and Parker did not, I remember that clearly from a longer/different version of the weigh-in video. That being said, I still think Andy is 6'0-ish. Looking forward to what Rob decides to list him as.
Robbe said on 17/Jun/19
@Mickie, Parker is barefoot in your video, while Ruiz is wearing thick sneakers. It's possible he wears some kind of lifts as well. In the match Ruiz was dwarfed by Parker.

Click Here
Mickie said on 16/Jun/19
The only way Andy Ruiz is 5'11" is if he is also a lift wearer.

First of all Ruiz is clearly taller in the Odell pic, not the same. Although it's hard to say with even footwear and posture what it would look like. Not the best pic for telling height but certainly does nothing to prove Ruiz is 5'11".

And that red line in the Joshua pic isn't really indicative of 16 cm imo. I don't think that math is quite right. It looks like 6 inches instead. Joshua's shoes are probably a tad thicker, so I'd say Andy looks about 6 foot even there.

But the smoking gun is with Joseph Parker. This is NOT what a 5'11" guy looks like with a 6'3" guy: Click Here

Either he routinely wears lifts or 5'11" is a joke.
c-mo said on 15/Jun/19
thanks guys

the only thing that might be to think about is questioning if kimmel stands on a step there or something but I doubt it

everything points out to ruiz being about 182cm

and I always said that around 182cm is the perfect height (178 - 184cm being the best range ..but more 180-184) . ruiz is one of the examples of it . he can slug it out with men of all heights and beats tall guys constantly . even a huge guy 198cm guy like joshua.

182cm will never be too tall or too short

it really is the best height

you basically have the best of all worlds when you are around 6'0
Myself said on 15/Jun/19
@c-mo
Yeah, Ruiz must be 5'11 range; I think like 5'11 1/8 or 5'11 1/4 max. He looks shorter than Cumberbatch.
Emil said on 15/Jun/19
@c-mo

Looks like we went through the same evidence Haha. Thanks for posting it
Robbe said on 15/Jun/19
Yeah, agree with c-mo. Andy is actually the shortest heavyweight champ since Mike Tyson. Good for him!

Ruiz is around 182cm as I thought . let me show you evidence

Ruiz looks around 182cm MAX next to Jimmy Kimmel who seems to be around 181cm

also look at this

Odell Beckham Jr. is around 181cm and he has bad posture in this pic and ruiz has a bit thicker shoes but he still looks around the same height as OBJ :

and finally :

look at this faceoff of joshua and ruiz . they both have shoes on . joshuas shoes might be a bit thicker like half a cm or maybe 1cm

Click Here

and look where the top of the head of ruiz comes up . it is at the lower nose level of joshua

Click Here


I measured from that point of my own nose to the top of my head and I get something around 16cm

sorry but thats not how a 184cm guy looks . let alone 185cm lol you guys are deluded .

Ruiz is around 182cm . he is probably 184cm out of bed . I wouldnt even be surprised if he is 1cm shorter than that and falls to 181cm at night tbh

lol guys : Click Here

seriously what else do you need ?
Emil said on 12/Jun/19
How can you guys be serious about Ruiz being 6'0.5 when he is at least 6 inches shorter than Joshua, and barely taller than Jimmy Kimmel.
Mickie said on 11/Jun/19
To be clear, I don't think Ruiz is a legit 6'1" let alone 6'2". But I think 5'11" is too low. Someone said he was shorter than Jimmy Kimmel - not true. He was in fact taller. I think 6'0" is arguable but not 5'11" (unless he's a lift wearer).
Gman39 said on 11/Jun/19
@Mickie - I agree. Right now I like 6'0" - 6'0.5" for Andy, I'm leaning to 6'0.5".
Rick1 said on 11/Jun/19
Ruiz is not 5'11, that is ridiculous, if you look at footage of him in interviews and in the crowd he still stands out from the average public, while he is clearly a lot stockier which may make him look shorter than he otherwise would be - just under 6'1 or 184.5cm is a fair enough estimate for him.
Robbe said on 11/Jun/19
Do the math folks. Andy is easily 15cm shorter than AJ. Both men wearing similar sneakers here.

Click Here

6'05 is a bit too generous for Andy, he is moore like a weak 6ft.
Mickie said on 10/Jun/19
@gman39 - I think you're right that AJ was barefoot and Ruiz in footwear. That said I think 6'0" - 6'0.5" is still more realistic than 5'11", unless he's packing lifts too. Because honestly he looks at least 6'1" there with his shoes, if not fractionally over it.
184guy2 said on 10/Jun/19
I highly doubt Andy is over 6'
Onabill Choudhury said on 10/Jun/19
@Mickie, Aj Eye Level is around the 6 ft 1 area and Ruiz top of the head looks to be 1/4 to 1/2 inch higher than his eye level, people are just underestimating due to his big boy statute, if he was lean than a lot of people would say he is 6 ft 1
Emil said on 9/Jun/19
@Mickie

I'm pretty sure AJ is barefoot and Ruiz is wearing some relatively thick footwear. Look at the pictures where AJ is wrapping his arm around his shoulder after their fight - Ruiz reaches AJ's tip of the nose which indicates at LEAST a 6 inch difference in height. However, Ruiz is probably losing a little posture but to think he's anything remarkably above 6'0 is just absurd to me

Here is the full weigh in video, at 3:00 you can see AJ and Ruiz face off in there street shoes. Later in the video you can see AJ does not get his shoes back on after weighing in.

@Mickie
Andy got his sneakers back on and AJ did not, Andy has footwear advantage there 100%. AJ comes right off the scale to the face off. Take a look at when they face off at the weigh-in as they first take the stage.
Robbe said on 9/Jun/19
@Mickie, AJ is on socks there, while Ruiz is wearing thick sneakers. Just check the video where both are wearing sneakers, the difference is close to 6in.
Mickie said on 7/Jun/19
This is NOT sub 6 foot next to A.J.: Click Here

Unless Ruiz is pulling a W. Klitschko with his footwear, he's closer to 6'1" than he is to 5'11".
rando182 said on 7/Jun/19
@McMurphy
Look at Andy's recent instagram post with Jimmy Kimmel, he is definitely taller than him in those pictures.
Mickie said on 7/Jun/19
@Canson - I think AJ could be height twins with Paul Pierce. I think both would be somewhere around 6'5 5/8" - 6'5.75" at a low. Good enough to be listed at 6'6" for a sports height and I won't call it a lie lol (I mean, it is the closest full inch mark.)
Mickie said on 7/Jun/19
I'd pump the brakes on the sub 6ft Ruiz stuff. There are photos next to Joshua he can look that, but plenty more where he looks closer to 6'1". I don't think 6'0.5" would be far off the money for him.
Editor Rob
184 might be a reasonable figure for him.
Emil said on 5/Jun/19
Ruiz is nowhere near 6'2 - I'm 100% sure he's not even 6'0. Same with Joseph Parker who's listed at 6'4 when he was at least 4 inches shorter than Joshua..
Most heavyweight boxers are horribly overlisted anyway, Joshua being a rare exception though...
Canson said on 5/Jun/19
@Mickie: yep and Joshua isn’t over 6’6”. There’s a better chance that he’s nearer what Rob lists him when he stands next to Klitschko
McMurphy said on 5/Jun/19
My guess for Andy is exactly 180-181 cm.
He loks roughly the same as OBJ who is under 6 foot.

Also Andy recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel show and he looked shorter than Kimmel who is listed 181cm.
Andy wore chelsea boots on that show.

Btw he made a great fight vs Joshua. No lucky shots, just good skills and work, totally deserved win.
Pls Rob, put a listing for Andy!
TJ180 said on 5/Jun/19
Rob, the picture below surely rules out anything above 185cm? What is your estimate based on this?

Click Here
Editor Rob
6ft 1/2 is probably a lot closer than the 6ft 1.5 initial boxing listing for him, but I can see how in some clips he seems barely over 6ft.
Dream said on 4/Jun/19
@184guy2

Dan Snow actually looks taller than Anthony Joshua in comparison, especially when Dan was barefoot with Andrew Flintoff.
Gman39 said on 4/Jun/19
Like Fury, it seems to me that Ruiz is over-listed by 1.5-2.0 inches - do you plan on listing him on the site Rob?

I think it is interesting that many boxer's have been listed at more than 1 inch above their actual height, in my opinion: Tyson 5'10.25/5'11.5, Holyfield 6'1.25/6'2.5, Fury 6.7.25/6'9, and now Ruiz 6'0.25/6'2? I am sure there are others..
Ellis 6'8 said on 4/Jun/19
I got Andy Ruiz at 6'0.5
Al 2 said on 4/Jun/19
Click Here Ruiz doesn't look much taller than OBJ, who has a posture and a footwear disadvantage
Tall In The Saddle said on 4/Jun/19
Agree, Ruiz does not look close to 6'2" - guess 6'1" max - but likely a bit less again - somewhere between 6'-6'1"

Ruiz appeared about 5" shorter than AJ. For further possible confirmation, common opponent Joseph Parker listed as 6'4" appeared 2" shorter than AJ and about 3" taller than Ruiz in the ring. Makes the height to weight (268lb) ratio a little bit more extreme - though coming in even heavier than usual was by design. Notably outside the ring on the street Ruiz appeared to gain about 1" back on Parker so probably wears some extra heel to appear taller.

I dunno about AJ reversing this one. Ruiz is a very good fighter - great chin, fast heavy hands and good defense - and a bad stylistic match up for AJ anyway - the defeat was far more comprehensive than the those single punch KOs suffered by Lennox Lewis who was truly complacent and out of shape.

Well I didn't say 6ft 1, but near it...how near...not under 6ft as he looked at least as tall (or a bit more) beside joshua than a friend looked in person beside him who is 183cm.

---

to me he looks 182cm and MAYBE 183cm with a slight chance of 184cm but nothing more than that tbh . my guess would be he is 182cm at night


the difference between him and joshua is roughly the same as between you and the 6'2 - 6'3 men you met

what do others think ?

@McMurphy . we dont even know if even Povetkin is truly 6'2 . Povetkin often looks 6'1 range to me like 186cm
Mickie said on 3/Jun/19
Ruiz isn't 6'2" barefoot. I'd say Joshua had a 5" height advantage. At times, it looked even more.
McMurphy said on 3/Jun/19
I seriously doubt Andy Ruiz is even 6'0.
6'2 is laughable.
Joshua was towering over him.
Povetkin is truly 6'2 and there was much less difference in height.

Hi Rob, what would put Andy Ruiz Jr at? He’s listed at 1.88m but he looks significantly smaller than Joshua, maybe even 1.83 m range
Editor Rob
Probably their press face off gives a good idea that 6ft 1-2 is ruled out. Whether he was a flat 6ft I am not so sure as when I watched a friend who claims 6ft meet Joshua, I felt Ruiz could look a bit taller!

6'6 is fine and my guess. TBH rounding 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8 of an inch to 1inch is NO PROBLEM, nobody should really get suspicious about that.
Redwing said on 2/Jun/19
Hi rob, how tall do you think Andy Ruiz is? And can you add him and Rocky Marciano? They deserve a page
Ellis 6'8 said on 2/Jun/19
@Rob: You should make a page for the current unified champion, Andy Ruiz! Although he came up short in height, he definitely didn't come up short come fight night! Standing next to the 6'6 Joshua, he definitely didn't seem 6'2, looks shorter.
Rick1 said on 1/Jun/19
Hello Rob could we get Andy Ruiz Jr on here? He's listed at 6'2 but i feel he may be slightly under that mark.
Gman39 said on 31/May/19
The guy he is fighting on Saturday (Andy Ruiz) is listed at a very generous 6'2, I am doubtful he is that tall even in sneakers. At the weigh-in they face off in the beginning and it looks like a clear 6 inches. Later, Ruiz gets his sneakers back on, but Joshua does not, and they look a little closer..

Mickie said on 22/Apr/19
I'll agree with Rob on A.J.

My current estimates of how tall some of the boxers of the 90s, 00s, and 10s who are listed on this would measure in the evening, shoeless:

Anthony Josua - 6' 5 3/4"
Tyson Fury - 6' 7 5/8"
David Price - 6' 8 1/4"
Deontay Wilder - 6' 6 1/4"
Vitali Klitschko - 6' 6 5/8"
Wladimir Klitschko - 6' 5 1/8"
Lennox Lewis - 6' 4 5/8"
Joe Joyce - 6' 5 3/8"
Evander Holyfield - 6' 1 1/4"
Mike Tyson - 5' 10"
David Haye - 6' 1 7/8"
Zs said on 20/Apr/19
He's legitimately 6'6. I met him a few days ago and I'm 6'6 and a half and I was ever so Slightly taller than him. He's definitely 6'6.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/19
Rob, can you add Jarrell Miller?


Listed 6ft4 but I think he may be more 6ft3 range. Definitely at least 2in between him and Joshua
Dream said on 15/Apr/19
His 6'6" claim is perfectly fine. He's closer to that than 6'5".

Plus, there are 6'5" who claim 6'6". There are 6'4" who also claim 6'6". AJ isn't one of them.
K.A 188 said on 15/Apr/19
After seeing a barefoot AJ still looking a bit taller than Ibrahimovic with shoe advantage, it seals the deal for me AJ is a legit 6ft6 barefoot and maybe 197 at his lowest
Dream said on 9/Apr/19
Maybe not military posture, but he does have damn good posture.
Dream said on 8/Apr/19
He has almost perfect military posture.

Rob, would you say AJ has the ‘best posture’ of all the people, you’ve met?
Editor Rob
I'm sure there are people who stood better than Joshua, although when he's walking and standing he does have a very tall look to him.
Canson said on 27/Mar/19
This listing is as good as it gets. Weak 6’6”
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
I remember Rob saying that he didn’t remember exactly what time of the day he met AJ. I think taking shoes into account and the video that he posted recently in regards to AJ’s height, that anything up to 6’6” looks pretty accurate but emphasis on up to. I would really say that if it’s a lunchtime measurement as Rob suspected his low may end up right around where he’s listed here 6’5.75 since Rob also was at the disadvantage with footwear. Good enough for 6’7 in something like b-ball shoes
Editor Rob
If you paused the video at the point I mentioned he was only 20 quid, you can see he was there between 11am and 3pm and I think roughly lunchtime. He did another group shot afterwards, went back to signing and away by 3pm.

Big baby miller looks around 6 ft 3 but he had massime elevator shoes, so he could be shorter...
Gman39 said on 6/Mar/19
@Jordan87,
Yes I agree. Right now I believe he could be anything between 6'2.5 and 6'3.5. I am leaning to 6'3+ but those massive boots (with who knows what in them) and big head make him hard to figure at the moment. Hopefully they have a barefoot stare down at the weigh-in.
Jordan87 said on 4/Mar/19
@ Gman,

Yeah the FIrst Time Miller and Joshua Stared down, I thought Miller was only 6'2.5", but the second and third time he looked taller. Miller has an absolutely MASSIVE head though. Could make it difficult to figure him.
Gman39 said on 21/Feb/19
Whyte is about 6'2.5. Joshua's next opponent, Big Baby Miller looks to be about 6'3 or 6'3.5. It was hard to tell because he had big combat boots on at the presser and may have had footwear advantage on Joshua.
Lord Humongous said on 7/Feb/19
I just want to say this is accurate but there's no way dillian whyte is 6'4 it's laughable. (not sure if dillian whyte has a celeb height page)

So basically because of Anthony Joshua's high eye-level, he can look taller to a lot of people.

Canson said on 28/Jan/19
@184guy: I would say if AJ falls to 6’5.75 that 6’6.75 is very much believable for him. I don’t know about Gwen tho I’ve never believed 6’4.5 out of bed. I think that’s her wearing shoes and that’s what she meant by depending on when
Dream said on 28/Jan/19
Rob, if a 6'5 7/8" guy (in winter boots) was standing beside Anthony Joshua, what would the difference look like?
Editor Rob
It depends on what Joshua is wearing, but he has the benefit of a great physique and highish eyelevel.

In person of course because of the difference in our eyelevels, Joshua's eyelevel seemed smaller than normal, by virtue of the fact I'm looking up - when he is looking down at 5ft 8 men he might think the person has a longer eyelevel...if that makes sense
184guy2 said on 26/Jan/19
Gwendoline Chrstie 6'4.5 out of bed believible
Anthony Joshua 6'7 out of bed NOT believible ?
secondrowback said on 26/Jan/19
He had footwearadvantage - about 1.5cm - over Greg Davies on Graham Norton Show last night. Greg looked easily two inches (plus) taller before the staredown. AJ was stretching and maybe tip_toeing during the staredown and at one point the difference was about one inch, but then GD straightened up and cleared him by two inches. I think AJ would be 2.5 inches shorter than GD if they were barefooted.
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Miko: very much possible
Voltaire said on 25/Jan/19
Looked every inch of 6'5.5 - 6'6 last night on the Graham Norton Show, especially when he stood face-to-face with 6'8 Greg Davies.
miko said on 25/Jan/19
Not impossible AJ is close to 6'7 out of bed. Given his weight & size he could lose a full inch through the day.
Canson said on 25/Jan/19
@Rob: in sneakers based on how you saw him that would be extremely likely if he’s 6’5.75 he would be either the full 6’7” or slightly over or maybe 1/4” under which he would round up.

AJ looks 196ish due to the footwear advantage, but there is enough evidence that he's at least 197.
Rain said on 16/Jan/19
Rob, I feel as if him and Derek Theler are almost exactly the same height, and of similar proportioms , ofc AJ is a lot bigger and heavier, do you still think Theler would have the edge?
Canson said on 7/Jan/19
@Rob: that probably would mean he could lose another 1/8” or so being a taller guy. Usually after lunch I could lose up to 3mm usually a couple tho. I think 6’5.75 is fair for him even at a low seeing as how he did look 6’6 with Ibra but not Klitschko. I’m beginning to wonder now if Ibra’s 194.5 is an earlier measurement and that he may only 6’4.25 or 3/8 (194ish) for the low
Canson said on 6/Jan/19

184guy2 said on 4/Jan/19

Don't you think that AJ looks a legit 6'6 with 194-194,5 Ibrahimovic and 189-190 Tony Bellew ??
Canson said on 30/Dec/18
In the pic with Rob if we adjust for his lean and the footwear advantage AJ has that puts him somewhere right in the 197cm range. May not quite be the full 6’6” like Faggerbakke or Wilder or Carmelo Anthony or Baron Corbin but he’s not less than a weak 6’6” based on Rob’s estimation of footwear and the pic. Very much over 6’5”.
Canson said on 30/Dec/18
@Ellis:

I never claim a morning height. You don’t maintain it long enough and it really is pointless to claim it. So in your case you wake up 6’7.75 and dip to 6’6.75. You’re “about 6’7” in that case. I wake up practically 6’5 or 1.5mm over the mark and reach 6’4.25 some days and closer to 6’4.3 on a less active day. I consider myself 6’4”. I did claim 1/2 but I was always asked why I did. It was why do I bother with half instead of 6’4 or more commonly why don’t I round up. I stopped and just say 6’4 now since that’s what I’m closest. The site is based off afternoon and evening heights not Morning. I also have taller friends who just claim what they’re closest to and don’t interfere with that claiming higher as it really does nothing when you do that. Be happy with what you are tho as 6’7” is plenty tall and it gets even harder the taller you get
Canson said on 30/Dec/18
@Ellis: I agree on Wilder. He would still come out around 6’6” at night and he would be close to 6’7” in the morning. As for Joshua I think 6’5.5-.75 range. I doubt less than 6’5.5 but he may be similar to what Rob saw with Joe Mangianello. Rob still had Joe at 6’5” even after he met him then reduced him by 1/4” just like he did with AJ. He mentioned that Joe would be 6’4.5-6’5 around lunch and AJ would be at most 6’6”. My guess is that Joe reaches 6’4.5 and AJ maybe 6’5.5 or .75 max. If AJ falls to that area he would for sure be in excess of 6’6” out of bed. No one that size gets away with losing less than 3/4” per day and most lose full inch or 7/8” in reality. AJ would be probably at least 6’6.5 out of bed. I think the difference would be “up to half inch” No more than that
Ellis-6'7.25 said on 27/Dec/18
@Canson: When you say easily over 6'6, how tall do you mean? If you were to stand Deontay Wilder and Joshua together, how much taller do you think Wilder will be? My guesses are, Wilder is 6'6 at night, just under 6'7 in the morning, Joshua is 6'5.3 at night and 6'6 flat in the morning maybe a paltry amount more, and Tyson Fury is 6'7 at night and 6'8 in the morning. I always use near my morning height, 6'7.25 is not my night height, it's 6'6.75, when I get up I'm probably 6'7.75 haven't checked though. If I'm very lucky I'm 6'9 in shoes, near when I get up obviously.
Yusuf bahs said on 26/Dec/18

@DeLorean: I’d go with 197-197.5 for AJ and 186.5 for Curry. Curry was measured early morning meaning 6’1.5 more likely. AJ looks close to his listing generally

DeLorean said on 22/Dec/18
Hi tall guys, just a question for us. I’ve seen Joshua pictured with Prince Charles (UK) in these days. If we assume that the Price is 175 now, in the pictures the difference between them is less than 10 cm... How can we assume that Joshua could possibly be 197.5 barefoot... maybe with minimum 5 cm. sneakers on... I think every star puts 5 o 6 cm. more on their schedule. Everyone should be measured BAREFOOT and nothing more. Even Wilder or Fury. I assume they are minimum 5 cm shorter than listed. Or am I wrong?
Editor Rob
I take it you mean These Photos.

He's still a few inches taller than Charles, whilst Charles is on a higher step.
Canson said on 20/Dec/18
@Ellis: I would see 6’6.5 as a few hours out of bed for Wilder maybe even a couple. 6’6” at a low imho
Jordan87 said on 19/Dec/18
Ellis,

Wilder should be at the very Least 6'6". Fury was listed at 6'7 once , I doubt he could be much taller than that. He sometimes looks 1/2" On Wilder and others over 1" so it's really weird with these two.

If I was a betting man I'd say Wilder safely clears 6'6" and is likely the 6'6-1/2" in the early afternoon hrs. Fury yes could be over 6'7 but not by much as he was once listed at 6'7" even.
Canson said on 14/Dec/18
@Ellis: 🙏. I must say that Wilder shows a 6’6.5 measurement. However, we don’t know what time of the day. We also see that he doesn’t quite look as tall as Carmelo. Melo isn’t much more than 6’6-6’6.25 range himself. I have them the same size as the camera angle favored Melo imho.
Ellis said on 13/Dec/18
@Canson: I'm starting to see that Fury is more 6'7.25, and Wilder might just be 6'6 flat you really hit the nail on the head with that prediction. For Deontay he can be anywhere from 6'6 to 6'6.25, I just think that 6'6.5 is a bit too high, but it's close enough i guess.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Dec/18
@Ellis

l used to think that his father's only 6'1" because I assumed that Joshua was barefoot in that pic. But apprarently that isn't the case.
Canson said on 12/Dec/18
@Ellis: I think anything 6’5.5-6’5.75 fits him. He could be as low as or up to both marks
Ellis said on 10/Dec/18
@Canson: Yeah I agree, according to this picture, Click Here
Anthony Joshua is a little bit in front of the camera, but his father does have a footwear advantage, if they were standing straight together the difference would be 3.75 considering that if they were shoulder to shoulder Joshua's fathers head would hit a little above Anthony's eye brows. Not considering the footwear the difference is 3.75. Considering the footwear the figure is more like 4 inches, I'd say Anthony Joshua is 6'5.5 and his father is 6'1.5.
@Christian: Just curious you never really clarified how tall you think Anthony Joshua is in the picture if you believe his father is 6'2, how tall do you think Anthony Joshua is in the picture?
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
@MrTBlack: I’ve heard him claim both. He said on that morning news program that he’s 6’6 in the morning and 6’5 in the evening then on the other clip that someone posted (a show with all women that he’s 6’5). My guess is 6’5 for him isn’t a solid 6’5”. He’s 6’5 and change. He likely would come all the way down under normal circumstances. But that he could be 6’5.25 at a low perhaps and 6’6” or possibly a hair over due to his long torso out of bed
MrTBlack said on 6/Dec/18
@Canson

Klitscho claims he’s 6’6”(and he probably is in the morning and close to it in the afternoon) so maybe his stare down with Joshua in the Netflix was during the afternoon at his bes and Joshua’s worst.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@MrTBlack: I think he can look close to what Rob has him maybe 6’5 5/8 worst case. Klitschko 6’5.25 is probably good. They’re close in height maybe a cm difference
MrTBlack said on 29/Nov/18
He looked about the same height as Klitschko who’s just over 6’5”. So I’m gonna say anywhere from 6’5.5-6’6”.

His dad looks an easy 6'2" and may have been more in his prime.

@Christian
He was in boxing shoes , not barefoot
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Oct/18
@Canson

His father could be about 6'1", if he wore shoes and if AJ was barefoot in that pic.
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Christian: AJ in that pic (barefoot) looks about as tall as someone like Michael Jordan would wearing Jordans imho but maybe im wrong. I wouldn’t put him over 6’5.5-.75
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Zampo: I was thinking more 6’1 and 6’5 1/2-3/4
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18
@Rick1

His father's around 6'2" based on that pic.
Gman39 said on 2/Oct/18
Rick1: Looks to me like his father is 6'2. Height difference between the two of them seems to be 3-4 inches but I am presuming his father has a footwear advantage because AJ in in nearly flat boxing shoes in this photo.
Rick1 said on 1/Oct/18

How tall would you say his father is looking at this photo ? They are both wearing shoes , I’m thinking 6’3??
Sakz said on 28/Sep/18
The images Christian provided indicate around a 5 inch difference between him and Povetkin with decent angles.
Zampo said on 28/Sep/18
@Canson: Indeed, in quite a few photos it can seem 4.5 or so but I doubt it (but I could be wrong). 4 inches is a reasonable difference between the two. If AJ is 6'5.75 then Povetkin is would be around 6'1.75.
Robbe said on 28/Sep/18
In Christians pic Joshua looks easily 5in taller than Povetkin, which cant be right. Just look at the weigh in video, where they are on even ground, same footwear, with perfect camera angle, the difference is not over 4in. You may even look Povetkin vs Price weigh in, Povetkin is only 5in shorter there.

About that big security fella, he might be indeed 6'9. Looks about 20cm taller than David Haye

@Robbe

Both are wearing socks Click Here The socks that AJ wore look like shoes but they aren't.
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
Zampo and Robbe: that looks over 4” in Christians pic
Gman39 said on 26/Sep/18
I saw other face-off pics where Povetkin and AJ seemed more than 4 inches apart. I watched the weigh in video, they are both in socks and I would say there is a 4 inch difference. Povetkin has appeared similar in height to 6'1.25 Holyfield in multiple photos. The big giant bodygaurd in the background is at least 6'9. Someone should tell Tyson Fury that is what a real 6'9 looks like ;)
Zampo said on 26/Sep/18
@Robbe, I agree. It seems to me there is a 3.5-4 inch difference between AJ and Povetkin from what I've seen. It may be closer to 3.5 inch as AJ has a smaller than average eye to head level for someone of his height range. Although in many photos there looked to be a 4.5 difference between the two. I've seen enough of Povetkin to believe he would measure in 6'1.5-6'2 range.
Robbe said on 26/Sep/18
AJ is not over 4in taller than Povetkin. More like 3.5in.

Click Here

Povetkin is wearing only socks there. Is AJ wearing sneakers? Or are those some kind of socks? If those are shoes, the difference is less than 3.5in.

Click Here

Btw, that security guy who is always on the background, looks noticeable taller than AJ. Must be at least 6'8. Looks easily 4in taller than Eddie Hearn Click Here
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Lanky: Phelps is near what Rob has him. Maybe the full 6’2.5 best case worst case 6’2.25 maybe. AJ looks 6’5.5 in pics to be honest
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Sep/18
@Gman39

There's more than 4"-4.5" between AJ and Povetkin. Click Here Click Here
Young Caesar said on 24/Sep/18
Klitschko was wearing lifts and AJ wasn’t even wearing shoes in the face off at the weigh-in. AJ is about 1cm taller than Wlad and it was noticeable at the face off in the ring when Klits wasn’t wearing lifts for once in his life.
Mickie said on 24/Sep/18
I think Price actually looks substantially taller than AJ in that photo.
184guy2 said on 24/Sep/18
Yeah Povetkin looked 6'2 with him
Mickie said on 23/Sep/18
I think Povetkin looked the full 6'2" next to AJ. Not over it though.
Lanky said on 23/Sep/18
Does he really look close to 6’6” with circa 6’2” Michael Phelps here?

saltyfish(177cm) said on 22/Sep/18
eddie hearn page would be good, he's pretty tall
Gman39 said on 22/Sep/18
I would guess 4 to 4.5 inches between Povetkin and AJ. If I had to pick I'd go with 6'1.5 for Povetkin.
Bazza said on 19/Sep/18
I would say Povetkin is legit 6'2 or close enough to not argue it, It looks around 4' difference in the staredown.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 14/Sep/18
Joshua is taller than Wlad, but it's not a full inch.
184guy2 said on 10/Sep/18
@dabva
Yeah yeah , the truth is that Klitscho is 6'5 and Joshua 6'3 ...
dabva said on 8/Sep/18
klitschko was 4-5 cm taller than joshua on staredown.
Batistataker said on 1/Aug/18
6'5.5"/197cm In 0.8inch boxing shoes he is likely a solid 6'6" at worst.
Big T said on 23/Jul/18
Povetkin's eyes are at Joshua's mouth, which suggests about a 3" height difference

However, if you compare the top of Povetkin's head with Joshua's eyeline, you would think it's a 4.5" difference

Also, AJ's eyeline is almost as high as Price's yet he looks 2" shorter

What does that tell us? AJ has a very long chin-to-eyeline, and a very short eyeline-to-top-of-head. This probably makes him look taller than he really is because we are used to using the eyeline of the taller man as a guide. If you are past his eyeline you are probably only about 3" shorter (like Parker was)
Gman39 said on 22/Jul/18
Holyfield (6'1.25) and Povetkin are quite close in height on a few different pics I found online. I would give Povetkin the very slight height edge after reviewing multiple photo's. Click Here I do think Rob has Joshua listed correctly at almost 6'6. Price looks 6'8 range to me.
Robbe said on 21/Jul/18
Povetkin is a legit 6'2 i think. He was roughly at Price's eyelevel at their staredown.

Click Here

That pic shows clearly Price is not 6'9. Looks nowhere near 3in taller than Joshua.
Will said on 19/Jul/18
i dont know if this really means anything to anybody but i just watched an interview between Kugan Cassius and AJ where AJ gave his top 5 heavyweights of all time and during the interview, AJ referred to himself as 6'6 to 6'7"
Gman39 said on 19/Jul/18
Joshua and Alexander Povetkin at a recent press conference appeared to be 4 to 5 inches apart in height.
Povetkin is listed as 6'2. I'm guessing he's close to that but not quite. What say you? Click Here
Canson said on 4/Jul/18
@Elohel and Reece: if AJ isn’t what Rob has him listed, then he is at least 6’5.5. He wouldn’t drop below that on a normal day at least. Klitscko could be 6’5-6’5.25 zone. 6’5 is a worst case
Big T said on 3/Jul/18
Perhaps drawing some long bows here, but if you look at Kevin Pietersen with Rob, KP with AJ, and AJ with Joseph Parker, I do reckon JP seems like a good 6'3"
Reece said on 2/Jul/18
Elohel. Wlad looks shorter in some pics too. It is so close between them. Wlad can look anywhere from a inch shorter to a inch taller even with both standing decent in boxing shoes (no lifts). The height variation is extremely rare in most cases one looks clearly than the other.
Canson said on 26/Jun/18
@Dream and Christian: yes he is taller than Wlad. Prob half inch
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Jun/18
Joshua is taller than Wlad, but it's definitely less than an inch between them.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Jun/18
@Elohel

Wlad admitted to being 6'5"
Elohel said on 23/Jun/18
@Christian

I honestly don't know where this assessment is coming from. Every time I see pics with him and Wladimir, they look the same height or Wladimir looks taller even. Unless Wlad is wearing lifts not sure how this is happening. Hell, in a pic with stormxy they looked pretty similar in height, with very little between them. I just feel people are getting caught up in the hype and inflating their stats. I notice that happens a lot, with wrestlers too.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jun/18
@Elohel

Joshua's taller than Wladimir.
Elohel said on 20/Jun/18
He seems the same height as Vladimir. Here in the UK we always seem to inflate the size and quality of our athletes (like the americans) he looks 6ft5.5 in boxing shoes. Amusingly enough I feel people will notice it more when the hype dies down. Still like him though...reckon him and wilder will be a good fight.
Canson said on 20/Jun/18
@Rob: my apologies. I meant for Klitschko that he’s 6’5-6’5.25 at a low, not Joshua. I agree that AJ is near 6’6 like 197cm (6’5.5-.75) which is weak 6’6” but Klitschko looks closer to 6’5”.

AJ would be more like 6’6.5-.75 out of bed and 6’5.5-.75 at a low
Mahesh jayan said on 20/Jun/18
Good video rob..near 2 inches difference b/w Anthony and Kevin..Kevin 192-93 and Joshua 197 is a real possibility..
Canson said on 19/Jun/18
@Rob: possible but my guess is 6’6-6’6.25 out of bed and 6’5-6’5.25 at a low.
Editor Rob
Towards end of this video CLick Here - Anthony and big Kevin Pietersen.

I mean in person I think Anthony is close to 6ft 6 and Kevin can't really be much less than 6ft 4 flat.
saltyfish said on 15/Jun/18
Then I think it came down to footwear then, as Richard Blackwood is pretty much the same height as Danny Dyer
Canson said on 15/Jun/18
There’s a pic of he and Wlad face to face on the field and AJ is in Under Armour. That said Rob has done well as it’s half inch or CM In favor of AJ. A weak 6’6” AJ 6’5.5-.75 would make Klitscko 6’5-6’5.25
Editor Rob
You could still make an argument for Vlad to be near 6ft 5.5 like many guess him at...I wouldn't rule it out entirely.
saltyfish said on 15/Jun/18
Big Rob, how tall would you say Richard Blackwood is standing next to AJ in the pic below? Keep in mind AJ is standing straight up, and Blackwood is slouching

Click Here
Editor Rob
Depends how much looser his stance is, but it would be hard to imagine him as tall as 5ft 11.
Canson said on 14/Jun/18
@Rob: that makes sense with him next to a 6’8” guy recently. The politician. I would’ve had AJ 6’5.5-.75
Canson said on 14/Jun/18
@Rob: when you met him in person would you have guessed his 6’6/6’7 claim on Conan to be a shoe height or do you think he would hold 6’6 or a hair over at a low as opposed to a weak 6’6”? Which is why he may claim it if he were an early morning measurement
Editor Rob
It's not believable he's over 6ft 6. Maybe he's more like 6ft 6, 7 (in shoes), that's at least believable.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 5/Jun/18
Claim*
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
@Dream: he would be closer at a low and clear 6’6” out of bed. If Rob isn’t 100% i would still say AJ is 6’5.5 at a low most likely
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Jun/18
He clears 6'5." I don't why people think of AJ as 6'4."

His 6'6" is more than reasonable since he's closer to that than 6'5."
Dream(5'9.5 said on 29/May/18
His fight with Wladimir was bloody raw!

One of the best 'RRRAAAAWW' fights I've ever since.

Rob, this isn't a height question, but what do you think of that match?
Editor Rob
I only seen highlights
Tungsten Carbide said on 27/May/18
Hey rob and fellow friends on celebheights, I was wondering rob if you could perhaps create a page on Daniel Dubois height? could you please , if you have time, give your opinion on his height, I believe he is only a centimeter over 6'4.

Thank You Rob , Hope you are well
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 26/May/18
@Gudydty

He clears 6'5" easily, just look the pic with Rob and click it to see the height chart.
Gudydty said on 25/May/18
Some legit 6ft8 celebs dwarf him, I would say 6ft6.25 out of bed and 6ft5 at night
TRent said on 15/May/18
@Rob you have this interesting height comparison article here and the result for challenger 15 is 196cm
Click Here

Can you explain why you look obviously taler with Joshua by at least couple inches and he is listed taller than challenger 15?
Editor Rob
Joshua does look a bit taller than the challenger in person...his body frame helps that fact.
The challenger doesn't have that big a head, which probably is a fraction less than Joshua (who has a normal eye but long eye-chin).
Bazza said on 4/May/18
Nah, AJ is certainly over 6'5. He is between 6'5.5 - 6'6 and i think the listing here is about right.
Canson said on 3/May/18
Weak 6’6”

He doesn’t appear to be standing completely straight with Rob the more I see the pic
FMExTREME said on 2/May/18
In that picture with Courtois seems like Courtois had 1.5in advantage, Joshua can't be more than 6'5 at best judging by that photo because Courtois himself looks clearly shorter than 6'7 Peter Crouch so even he might not be a full 6'6.

Being physically huge is more important for hw Boxing than for hw MMA
Jordan87 said on 4/Apr/18
The height and reach over Parker was evident from the Start , but AJ Outboxed him honestly. AJ is a monster, keep in mind a prime George Forman was around 6'3 and 226 pounds ( In 1970's). Parker is actually bigger than Foreman was, and look how small AJ makes him Look.

Boxers are certainly alot bigger today. ALi, Frazier, Liston all around 200 to 220 ( Liston being the Biggest in weight). Thats tiny in modern standards of HW.
Steve 27777 said on 2/Apr/18
I guess AJ is 200cm out of bed and in the evening 197.5 cm tall.
