He edges out Calzaghe by about .75”

I say 6’0”

Froch is a pretty tall guy. I don't get the attempts to downgrade to under 6ft.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Mar/19
Worst case 5'11.75", but 6'0" is okay for him.
Bobby 5'10 (178cm) said on 1/Feb/19
Rob, wouldn't you be looking below his mouth if the difference is 4 inches?
Editor Rob
Usually I would be looking below yes, unless a taller person has bigger eyelevel (or tilts their eyelevel down a bit).

The same is true of the reverse - if I tilt my eyelevel down a bit and a taller person raises theirs I could be looking at the chin of a 6 footer.
Colberto said on 4/Dec/18
I think he is a good candidate for 5'11 ⅞" or 182.5cm
Editor Rob
he might be...but I think 6ft on the nose is reasonable for Carl.

Froch with David Haye
If froch is 6’0 (which I dont really agree with), Haye is really a very weak 6’2.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 11/Nov/18
Mel, 2.5-3 inch is too low, the old height chart on this image proved he was very close to 6ft if he wasn't exactly that.
Hbv said on 9/Nov/18
181
Mel said on 25/Oct/18
Don’t see a 6’0 in him. This is more like a 2.5-3 inch difference. 5’11 at best for him. And yes, he looks like you :)
Nik said on 13/Oct/18
It's interesting that he was only 5'3" at the age of 17!
mikes said on 5/Aug/18
around that. initially thought more than that coming from the calzaghe one but... yeah around 6
Zampo said on 2/May/18
Another person (Ross Marquand) who I think would measure very similar (I measure 5'11 7/8 at a low) based on the height of his features.

Rob, Who do you think is taller between Froch & Marquand after meeting both?
Editor Rob
I think giving both 6ft flat is probably reasonable enough as they can look quite similar in person.
Dinho101 said on 22/Apr/18
Six foot is a great listing for him, I could see him possibly sinking to 182.4 at a reasonable low but six foot is a very honest and accurate listing. A good example of a decently solid 6 footer.
Jordan87 said on 18/Apr/18
I wouldn't pay too much attention to Adnan. He posts heights that are wrong b/c he actually somehow misses the featured picture of the celeb every time.

He is either a lunatic or troll. Either way he makes himself look bad on nearly every forum, no problem with that. Sometimes I need a good laugh.
Agent Orange said on 3/Apr/18
Honest claim . 6 ft.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 25/Mar/18
Adnan, your drive-by guesses are getting a bit crazy. How could this guy be only 179? He is clearly more than an inch above 5'10 in the photo.
Adnan said on 24/Mar/18
179-180 cm
Jordan87 said on 12/Feb/18
He hits the 6 foot mark in Rob's Photo, His claim is pretty sound. Most boxers Inflate their height. Mike Tyson is honest about his height, maybe a few others.
Adnan said on 11/Feb/18
5'11"
Turtle said on 14/Dec/17
When that happens how much do you charge for a photo Rob?
Editor Rob: nothing!
Turtle said on 12/Dec/17
What was Froch like Rob?
Great boxer... does come across like he proper loves himself tho
Editor Rob: he was reasonably friendly with people the events I've seen him at.

It must always seem a bit strange strangers paying money for photos with you...I know I've been in that situation myself, some people have asked for a photo with me and of course I happily oblige, but that is still rather a rare occurrence!
Gladstone Screwer said on 11/Dec/17
Carl was a terrific fighter he really was. He has a new hooter now, it suits him, he's handsome as well now !
Six foot fine with me.
Faza said on 29/Nov/17
Groves must be a solid 5ft11 looking at him face to face with chris eubank jr 180 or 181cm
Bobby said on 28/Nov/17
Guessed 5'11 from the thumbnail, might be 5'11.75, honest guy for claiming 6ft.
Bard said on 24/Nov/17
Honest guy, not less than 5'11.75
King of the hill 91 said on 17/Oct/17
George groves has lisstings 182 cm and 181cm maybe winds it down or is 182 cm at some point in the day maybe
faza said on 11/Oct/17
Rob, what would be your guess on Boxer James Degale? reckon he is similar to Carl Froch, Groves is listed as 5'11.5 on Boxrec must be a solid 5'11 range guy going off how he looked with Froch his next opponent Jamie Cox is listed as 5'11 and Groves looks a good 1-2 Inches taller in all their faceoffs Cox must be 5'10 max most seems to be overlisted
Editor Rob: groves basically claimed 5ft 11 on twitter, I think Froch would edge Degale out though.
Faza said on 9/Oct/17
How tall would you guess upcoming boxer anthony yarde is listed 6ft not sure at all on him he can look near 5ft11 i guess on his twitter he has pictures next to gerrard lampard big rio and owen
Height Sky said on 27/Sep/17
@Rob

So you looks like a boxer and wrestler lol, in the eyes of Big G you looks like a clon also of height of Froch
omg said on 24/Sep/17
He looks like you!
Editor Rob: I came first though, I'm 41 😆
I also trademarked myself, so I'll be coming after these impersonators 😈
Aswin MK said on 12/Sep/17
"Editor Rob: actually, today when out walking with Jenny through the park a couple of kids walking by, one of them said to me 'Are you Sheamus'.

I'm like wtf, who?'

"Sheamus the wrestler" he said.

I said, "nah mate I'm too small".

And Jenny will attest this under oath, the kid said 'You look taller than him!'

How the f*** he thought I looked like Sheamus I'll never know 😂"

Ha ha ha, good to see that you resemble a lot of people, Rob :) But I am still surprised no one mistook you for Carl Froch, after all he is one of the most popular boxers in Britain. I guess WWE is more popular than boxing, but how the hell does it make you resemble Sheamus is something I can never figure :) Kids are crazy. Unless you whiten up more, grow six inches, and have a hair style that is a barber's nightmare, I don't see you resembling Sheamus :D
Editor Rob: well I also mentioned before that on another occasion - at a convention - a lady did a double-take and said something like aren't you on Supernatural...I think she was slightly tipsy, but I'm there thinking I'm as handsome as Jensen Ackles, but it turns out a little bit like Rob Patrick Benedict 😳 Jenny witnessed that too!
Arch Stanton said on 10/Sep/17
Nothing like Sheamus, Chris Evans looks more like Sheamus than you do LOL!! Saying Carl Froch looks like you is fair game though, the only celeb I've seen who actually does resemble you a bit.
Editor Rob: even Jenny laughed when I told her Sheamus was over 6ft 2 and this random kid said I was bigger.
Aswin MK said on 9/Sep/17
Ha ha ha, never mind the height Rob, both of you look like brothers with only 4 inches separating each other :D
Editor Rob: actually, today when out walking with Jenny through the park a couple of kids walking by, one of them said to me 'Are you Sheamus'.

@bobby your right I'm 6ft but when I ask people to guess my height I get from 5ft 11 -6ft3 loool it sounds Crazy I know
Bobby said on 5/Jul/17
Wow, he certainly grew a lot. Almost a foot. It's funny how a lot of 6footers all look different in terms of stature. Some can look 6'2, others can look more 5'11.

Hi Rob,
This celebrity is your perfect 6 ft clone :)
World Citizen said on 4/Jun/17
Looks a bit under 6 ft here.
Jose said on 30/Apr/17
I met him as well. I can vouch and say with confidence that he is 184 cm
Nick said on 19/Apr/17
king said on 6/Oct/16
Where his hairline starts is 5'10 so surely there cannot be a full 2 inches from there?

I would say he's 5'11.5 at most
Namor said on 21/Mar/17
Hi rob, when you mean 5'4"on this height chart do you mean it as 164 cm?
Editor Rob: close, about 163cm
Johnson said on 10/Feb/17
@Rob 9 inches since 17 years old? I reckon it is impossible. He could have mistaken 14 years old for 17, people likes exaggerating
Editor Rob: Johnson, it seems a helluva lot, but hard to check without seeing anything from when he was like 16.
Redwing said on 22/Jan/17
Looks 183.5 cm tall
James B said on 23/Dec/16
Rob did he mention how similar you looked to him?
Editor Rob: James, he was honoured to look a bit like me 😇
Johno said on 28/Nov/16
5'11.75 might be a better option.
Anon said on 24/Nov/16
I just met him in person. He claims 6'ft. Looks like has height on Beckham in photos and barely shorter than Andy Murray. Granted footwear cant be seen but I think he's around 6'1 without knowing it.
anon said on 2/Nov/16
You should consider adding boxers like James Degale and George Groves to this site imo, both well know uk fighters, I would peg Groves at 5'11 and Degale around 6'
Redwing said on 7/Oct/16
Your eyes are at his mouth I just realised that. So he's gotta be six foot tall!

Csimpson 6ft said on 1/Oct/16
On the chase with Mikey North who looks 5ft 7.75 and who plays Gary Windass off Coronation Street froch didnt quite look a full 6ft guy with him Click Here, it looked a 4 inch difference there and with rob he doesn't look 4 inches taller than him, i think ill go with 5ft 11.75
PhysicsEnemy said on 19/Sep/16
Looks 5' 11.5", doesn't seem 6'. Barely more than 3" on 5' 8.25" Rob.
Johno said on 25/Aug/16
Rob looks like Carl Froch and Jenny a young Ellen Burstyn.
Gx79 said on 17/Aug/16
Rob you too look a like a little
Editor Rob: I suppose one of my closer 'celebrity lookalikes'!
matt said on 18/Jul/16
Any Idea on Martin Murray he gets listed as 6'0, He looked shorter than George Groves face to face etc, before their fight and only looked a tad above Golovkin from what I recall, Is Murray really 5'10? bit strange, Groves himself is listed as 5'11.5, and he was around an Inch maybe bit less shorter than Froch so Groves must be a 5'11 guy anyway.

Rob, have you seen much of Martin Murray for any estimate
Editor Rob: Groves I think would be 5ft 11...he basically said something like he was 6ft 3 but tells people he is 5ft 11 as a kind of joke, but the 5ft 11 part is true, he could be a solid 5ft 11+

Murray looks at least 1 inch, maybe about 1.5 range smaller, so I doubt Martin is more than 5ft 10.
Johno said on 23/May/16
He has about 3.5-inches on Rob; you call him a 6-footer.
joe### said on 19/May/16
Rob, his hair is not too bulky looks flat 6 he's normal posture
Editor Rob: his hairstyle is about half inch style from what I seen that day.
Damian said on 22/Apr/16
Rob, in this photo, the tip of his nose to the very top of his head looks like 7.5 inches or more.
Peter 180cm said on 17/Apr/16
181 or 182cm seems more likely, a weak 6'0 guy.
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
5'11 75
Emil 183 cm said on 1/Feb/16
I have to disagree, Rampage, I see 0 chance of Froch being 184
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/16
183-184cm looks more feasible than 182-183cm, IMO.
mickey said on 31/Jan/16
6ft in the morning, 5ft11.5 at late night
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 2/Jan/16
Rob,10inch head ?
Editor Rob: would have thought 9.5-9.75 possibly
CD said on 7/Dec/15
Rob, would you completely rule out 182cm 5ft 11.75 because that's how he looks in the photo? Even if you thought he was a full 6ft.
Editor Rob: there's always a chance of being above/below a listing. Is there more chance Froch is over 6ft or under 6ft? Probably more chance a little bit under than over.
Big C said on 6/Dec/15
Rob, 6ft flat for Froch? Do you think hes exactly the same as me?
Editor Rob: up close he looks very close to a typical 6 foot guy
Emil 182-183 cm said on 10/Aug/15
@Rob
Might be possible that Froch could drop 5 mm below 6'0 after a workout.
[Editor Rob: Emil, yes it is possible.]
Sam said on 9/Aug/15
Rob, I've seen a photo of where you measured your head length, and the distance from your head and Carl's head is just about 3 inches, making Carl around 5'11" max
Modeus said on 2/Aug/15
Rob when will happen the show where anthony joshua is going to be?
sorry for bad english
[Editor Rob: I will add him soon.]
Rory said on 30/Jul/15
Rob, 184.5 cms out of bed ?
[Editor Rob: possible]
linke said on 10/Jul/15
9 inches after the age of 17.....wow!!! I am prety sure most of the guys are done by 16-17. I reached my final 5'10, when I was 17.
Modeus said on 19/Jun/15
[Editor Rob: he claims that height, he is at a show I plan on going to, I hope he doesn't cancel...if he appears I will get a photo!]

wow that would be awesome to see what a real 6 ft 6 guy finally looks with you Rob,hope he wont slouch.
Tom said on 1/Jun/15
Rob how tall is Anthony Joshua, listed as 6'6 and looks it. Page for him would be welcomed as he is undoubtedly an up and coming star of British Boxing.

Rob, this guy kinda looks like he might be related to you! Well, before his nose got battered anyway haha!

Elias said on 12/Feb/15
Yes he is easily 6ft, he does look like a mix between rob and liam neeson too :) but I don't think he was 5ft3 at 17... at 17, even at 16 everyone has almost finished growing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Feb/15
5ft3 at 17!
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 17/Dec/14
Looks about 3.5in taller than rob so I believe his lowest measurement would be 182cms.
Vibram said on 21/Nov/14
6ft on the dot. Possibly 6ft0.5 morning. Groves is 5ft11 flat I think. Amir Khan is 5ft8.5.

If Rob toned up a bit, slipped in some lifts and lived in Nottingham, he would be mistaken for the 'Cobra'. :)
ray said on 31/Oct/14
How Tall is George Groves, He is listed 5'11.5 could be about right, He looks maybe 181-182cm?

He could be 5'11 flat at worst but he looks 5'11- 5'11.5 range to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/14
The 6ft1 he's usually listed at is probably his morning height
Steve said on 18/Oct/14
He's the exact same height as 5'11.5 listed George Groves. Doesn't look to be much taller than Calzaghe, who's around 5'11 either.
SaveUsY2J said on 12/Sep/14
@Connor 183cm: Highly doubt it. Based on this photo I'd have guessed 6'0.25.
Connor 183cm said on 4/Aug/14
Rob is it possible Froch is 182cm?, he could be near enough 6ft though.
[Editor Rob: within a few mm of the 6ft mark I'd say]
kevin said on 2/Aug/14
181- 182cm range is possible for George Groves, Degale looks same as Froch in general, Chris Eubank jr looks same as his dad he is listed as 5'10 looks legit
FilmMaker said on 15/Jun/14
strong 6'
181 said on 3/Jun/14
Looks 6ft on the dot.
SAK said on 14/May/14
How tall is George Groves? He is only slightly under Froch. So I am guessing 181-182cm.
[Editor Rob: generally I'd have said 5ft 11 range for him, although he has been billed 5ft 11.5]
Ulysses 5'9 said on 13/May/14
Haha I've often thought Rob looked like Carl Froch and here they are side by side to prove it! Anyway, yes Froch's 6 foot on the dot. Pretty tall guy.
ufc34 said on 3/Feb/14
@Rob,
so his partner Rachel is no where near 5 ft 9, wow that goes to show you don't believe a lot of these internet heights.
[Editor Rob: yeah, some heights out there can be right and wrong, that's why celebheights and it's users tries to narrow them down!

It's clear Rachel in heels is like at least 5 inches shorter than Carl.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/13
A fraction over 6ft looks possible. I'd say he's about the same as Alex.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 1/Dec/13
Rob, if you put on 20 pounds of muscle and got your nose broken a couple times you'd be a dead ringer for Froch.

johno said on 8/Apr/13
About 3.5 inches taller then rob there but since rob is not a 5.8 flat i am going to give froch a height of 5'11.75
Johno said on 9/Mar/13
Looks between 5'11.25 - 5'11.5 there

ArjunaKorale said on 21/Aug/12
Thanx alot, Rob!
ArjunaKorale said on 16/Aug/12
No probs, Rob! But is it possible that you could still do an entry on Duran or Sugar Ray Robinson or Charley Burley as these are my three favourite fighters.
[Editor Rob: I'll think about sugar ray]
ArjunaKorale said on 15/Aug/12
Froch is a real warrior! Rob, please can you do an entry on Roberto Duran - the man is just about the bravest, biggest hearted little fighter I have ever seen. If you could do that, I would really appreciate it!
[Editor Rob: I passed up chance last year to get photo with duran and only saw him at distance, I only have so much money and have other things I spend money on :(

i collect things like auto's and steelbooks a lot]
joe joe said on 8/Aug/12
Froch is one of those guys who looks like he could claim 185 when you see him in the ring. He's a clear 183 man and alot more believeble than Calzagi claiming 183. If froch was a hollywood actor he would probably try and claim 6'1 lol
matt789 said on 1/Aug/12
6 feet flat is definley correct
c-mo said on 27/Jul/12
hmm to me he looks 185cm
JBJ said on 26/Jul/12
If Froch is indeed 6ft tall, how tall is Andre Ward then? Ward seemed to be just under Froch.
[Editor Rob: could be 182cm]
ArjunaKorale said on 26/Jul/12
Well done, you have got Froch down just right! (Unlike Calzaghe, who you have overestimated!)
Rikashiku said on 13/Jun/12
Holy cow. Thats what Rob would have looked like if he was 4" taller. Anyway, he looks like a weak 6'0".

@NelsonHeights says on 6/Jun/12, Inflated? David Haye is listed at 6'3" all the time and he looks no taller than 6'0".
tom said on 9/Jun/12
a bit under 6.0 imo
Ace said on 8/Jun/12
You know, now that Reality mentioned it, you two do look like you could be brothers.
And boxrec is iffy, but generally accurate to the inch, although like any website where figures are offered by publicists, its best to be cautious and wary.
Moke said on 8/Jun/12
Proves again, that you can't trust boxrec.
rob89 said on 7/Jun/12
Looks about 5'11.5"
Reality said on 7/Jun/12
Rob,he looks pretty much like you,don't you think so?

I'm happy to see you again.
[Editor Rob: we do look a bit alike]
joe joe said on 7/Jun/12
he claims 6Ft but he is always down as 6'1 on all the tales of the tape. which is weird. boxing has a reputation for doing that though. I remember lewis v Tua and Tua is a 5'10 guy with a high top hair style so on the tape of the official fight. it said "david tua 5'10- 6'2 with hair I kid you not
5'10guynotgrowing said on 6/Jun/12
hes like a taller,tanner version of you Rob.
NelsonHeights said on 6/Jun/12
He gets listed as 6'1 for his fights.Although boxers heights do tend to get inflated!
small man syndrome said on 5/Jun/12
You two do look quite similar! I'd say 6 foot is a fair bet for Froch, although he looks slightly shorter in this photo.
Terry said on 5/Jun/12
Carl Froch is tall, deffinetly a 6footer i say 6'1.
Radu said on 5/Jun/12
hmmm i see....but in this photo he looks close to 5 ft 11 maybe 181-182 more accurate
Radu said on 5/Jun/12
haha brothers indeed !that's what i've thought when i saw the photo.rofl close to 180 i guess...and bute...184 maybe?what do you think rob?
[Editor Rob: in person we had pretty similar sneakers and I thought this is a guy who looks a 6 footer.

Josh said on 5/Jun/12
Looks a weak 6 footer, closer to 5"11 is my guess
fiveten said on 4/Jun/12
whoa you guys look like brothers!
Stiffelio said on 4/Jun/12
Good to have the comments back, Rob. Thak you! This guy looks a solid 6ft.
Mike said on 4/Jun/12
Yes totally agree with the listing above, boxing heights tend to be very accurate, so a solid six footer but no more
Mike said on 4/Jun/12
Yes I agree with this listing, a solid six footer but no more.... Boxing heights tend to be very accurate

Looks a weak 5' 11" or is that the stature
