@Editor Rob: I’m still surprised you have him listed 6’6.5” being he looked shorter than Carmelo Anthony who measured 6’6.25. I agree that the difference wouldn’t be that pronounced but it’s very likely that Wilder measured that height earlier in the day. Fury also has over an inch on him most of the time and you conceded that he would be max 6’7.5 afternoon height, meaning he could even be below that. With that said, 6’6” flat or perhaps 6’6.25” may be the better listing for Deontay Wilder? The latter puts him on par with Carmelo Anthony
Mickie said on 4/Jul/20
I would say 6'6" - 6'6.25" in the afternoon. He's a bit more than an inch shorter than Fury who I have at 6'7.25" - 6'7.5". Wilder's brother said Deontay underwent an "autopsy" recently, so I'm not sure if there will be a 3rd fight lol.

1) In the ring where the footwear is above all for proper balance and leverage, and thus the same for both men, Fury always looks to be more that an inch bigger as ringside commentators have remarked.
2) Deontay has twice weighed in for title fights at barely 15 stone, and yet for his build at 6'6.5'' you would surely be approaching 16 stone. Half in inch accounts for the discrepancy.
3) If he really is 6ft 6 ½. Deontay only claimed half an inch more than his true height in 2015 when he claimed "6'7''. In his position why on Earth would he not be claiming a good inch more than his real height?

A number of lines of evidence converge on the probability that he is not over 6'6''.
Canson said on 29/Jun/20
@Crane: he may just be listed at a height he measured a little earlier in the day. He may be 6’6.25 or 6’6-6’6.25 afternoon height. 6’6 flat is probably the lowest I could buy. 6’5.75 looks too low but 6’6.5 too high
Crane said on 29/Jun/20
197.5 cm at best. He's lean slender skinny which gives you that impression when taking pics. Hair style, posture, camera angle + always wore on those massive basketball sneakers/sketchers is helping him also. Wilder is way overlisted like most celebs in this site. The barefoot measurement figures they got once the top of their heads were lazor is much lower than you honestly thought it would be. Look/Pictures is decieving as alaways. Anyone who've been in the height game this long would've known that.
Canson said on 20/Jun/20
@Rampage: yea the consensus on Fury’s page is anywhere in that 1-1.5” range. I would give Wilder max 6’6.25 and Fury max 6’7.5 or 1/4” shorter for both or maybe just Deontay
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/20
I see more than 1in between him and Fury. But it could be that Fury is a weak 6ft8 and Wilder a strong 6ft6?
Mon said on 11/Jun/20
Okay, maybe is enough evidence for a flat 6’6”. There are many photographs where he seems almost as tall as Fury, though few of those are with Tyson and Fury in the ring, where there is less footwear advantage possible. Deontay is lean yet heavily muscle, and muscle is quite a bit heavier than fat. For the first bout with Fury, Deontay weighed in at 212lb, which is light by modern heavyweights standard, and also less than 5'10' Tyson weighed in at for bouts when he was twenty years old. At 6ft 5 ¾, Anthony Joshua had lost 10lb to come in at 237lb in his last contest.

While is not impossible Deontay Wilder is 6ft 6 ½, him coming in at 212lbs (and 214lbs previously, so it was no fluke) makes it rather unlikely he is over 6'6''. Deontay has naturally excellent posture, and big shoes for press conferences with Fury. It would be a priori expected that Joshua and Wilder would be between 6'5'' and 6'6'' because that is what all top heavyweight champs have been for decades. Fury is the outlier and I give him one and a half inches over Wilder based on themin the ring. Although the weight of Wilder in some of his bouts is just a supporting argument, it's a concrete fact not subjective.
Canson said on 5/Jun/20
Mon said on 4/Jun/20
Well into his thirties by then, Wilder was down at 212lb for the first match with Fury. That would be unnaturally light for a man in his prime pushing 6'7''. I cannot see him being 212lb at the height listed here while going into a professional championship heavyweight (ie anyweight) contest. No way. Wilder is a weak 6'6''. In Wilder-Fury II during the second round the British commentator said there appeared to be considerably more that an inch between them. Fury is almost two inches taller. I am pretty sure about this because I follow boxing.

Wilder is more than just a weak 6’6”. He is a solid 6’6”. Fury is more than likely a hair over 6’7” next to him

Canson said on 25/Apr/20
@Robbe: I think Wilder and Harrison are of similar height. I can’t see Harrison as low as 6’5” flat after seeing this video. Maybe we can argue 197cm range as opposed to the full 6’6” but I can’t see 196

Canson said on 2/Apr/20
Melo tends to have that camera angle a lot. Had it with cam newton too. He’s not 3” taller than Cam. He’s shorter than Lebron yet has more height on Newton than Lebron had. But agree with FriedChicken wilder isn’t shorter than Melo who is around his listing

FriedChicken said on 1/Apr/20
I agree with the others. Needs a downgrade. He is not taller than Carmelo Anthony.

Click Here
Canson said on 28/Mar/20
@Robbe: he needs a downgrade imho. I’d go with 6’6.25 to start but honestly 6’6” flat looks the best. He is clearly not anywhere near Fury
Canson said on 23/Mar/20
@Robbe: interesting. I wouldn’t have had him that low but that’s possible I suppose. I think Wilder’s listing needs attention. He definitely shouldn’t be listed taller than Carmelo
Nik Ashton said on 16/Mar/20
He will be losing many inches of height with THAT lean!
Robbe said on 14/Mar/20
Harrison is 196cm range. Both Wilder and AJ are taller than Harrison Click Here
Canson said on 12/Mar/20
@Robbe: I didn’t see their feet. So where do you have Harrison?
Robbe said on 10/Mar/20
@Canson, Wilder is barefoot, and Harrison is wearing shoes in your picture. Harrison is shorter than Wilder. What comes to Breazeale, he is about 1-1.5cm taller than Wilder. In their face of, Wilder had to look up at Breazeale. Wilder was standing at his very best, while Breazeale was standing relaxed.

Click Here

Breazeale is taller than Wilder, but shorter than Fury. My guess:

Wilder 6'6
Breazeale 6'6.5
Tyson 6'7.25
Canson said on 5/Mar/20
@Robbe: actually after looking at it more, Breazeale is slightly closer to the camera than Wilder. However, it wouldn’t surprise me if the former still edges the latter out in the end
184guy2 said on 4/Mar/20
AJ 6'5.88 AT WORST
Wilder 6'6.25
Almost nothing between them
Canson said on 4/Mar/20
@Robbe: he looks more like Audley Harrison’s size. At least he’s closer in height with him than he is Breazeale. Maybe the latter actually is that height in the afternoon (normal low) and the Deontay is 6’6 flat or a touch over; and maybe even a touch under 6’6” is possible for Harrison

Click Here
Canson said on 4/Mar/20
@Robbe: I think all of the evidence points to 6’6 for wilder if we include Carmelo Fury and Brazille. I would like to see a pic with Anthony Joshua too
Bazza said on 3/Mar/20
Really want to see AJ and Wilder fight so we can put this one to bed. My money is on similar height with maybe Wilder edging it.
Robbe said on 3/Mar/20
Nah, Deontay looked visible shorter than 6'6.5 Breazeale Click Here
Murtuza said on 29/Feb/20
Deontay Wilder is a solid 6’7” in my opinion stop saying he’s 6’6” thats ridiculous
Canson said on 27/Feb/20
@184guy: I do agree
184guy2 said on 26/Feb/20
Yeah Canson but AJ has the more impressive appearence in general and healthy. Both Tyson and Wilder have chicken legs, really embarassing for HW . I'm pretty sure AJ could do it better on MMA than the others .
Canson said on 25/Feb/20
@Shane: Fury did look shorter than Magic but Magic had more footwear. I wonder if it’s Fury having his typical languid posture there
Shane said on 24/Feb/20
@Ellis if you saw Fury with Magic I think you would revise his heights downward.
Mickie said on 24/Feb/20
Wilder looked an inch and a quarter shy of Fury in the ring. He could be more 6'6.25" than 6.5".
Canson said on 24/Feb/20
@184guy: yea and at around 230lbs he’s a quiet 230 for a 6’6 range guy. Fury looks to be the bigger body all around
184guy2 said on 23/Feb/20
lol he come in at 231
still not that big comparing to Joshua and Tyson who are easily 240 and 270 in normal range weights
Sean william Winter said on 21/Feb/20
wilder comes in 223 lbs i reckon. at rob do you think 50/50 1/1 betting odds. be nice to make some money but i dont know.
Editor Rob
I couldn't call this fight, I think it's a toss up.
Canson said on 20/Feb/20
@Bazza: I agree with your estimate and that’s how they look in the ring. Really maybe a 2cm As opposed to an inch difference between them and AJ is slightly less than Wilder
6'1guy said on 19/Feb/20
How much you think he weighs Rob? Looks kinda light for his height? I was thinking maybe 200-205lbs? Compared to someone like Joshua he'd look skinny, even though he's not - he's just very tall.
Editor Rob
I think his weigh-in should be interesting!
Bazza said on 19/Feb/20
Fury is likely close to 6'8 out of bed and 6'7 flat all day long. Wilder an inch shorter, maybe a touch over 6'6 flat but i'm not seeing 6'6 and a half. AJ just a touch under 6'6.
Sean william Winter said on 18/Feb/20
rob are you a fan of tyson fury will you be watching the boxing on 22nd february??
Editor Rob
I will probably watch highlights. It will be interesting to see what happens, I wouldn't bet on this match!
Sean william Winter said on 18/Feb/20
why not the full 6'7 rob. there photos with david haye camp in 2013. i see a 5 inch gap. Click Here
Canson said on 15/Jan/20
@Ellis: I agree with all three estimates. Wilder could be maybe a touch over. It’s odd that Carmelo Anthony looked taller but maybe it was the angle
Ellis said on 13/Jan/20
@Canson: Do you think that Wilder is 6'6 at a low? and also, What do you think Fury's range is, from a high to a low?
I think that Fury is,
Out of Bed: 6'8, Low: 6'7
Wilder
Out of Bed: 6'6.75, Low: 6'6
Joshua
Out of Bed: 6'6.25-5, Low: 6'5.5-6'5.75
I'm pretty confident that Braun Strowman is taller than Wilder, I'm just not sure if Tyson Fury dips below 6'7 for a low, if he does, it is at most a quarter inch.
Canson said on 11/Jan/20
@Ellis: I doubt Fury is close to 6’8”. He struggled with 6’7 with Magic
Ellis said on 10/Jan/20
I think Fury's power is heavily underrated, I mean yeah it's nowhere near as strong as Wilder, but lets not forget he is a 6'7-8 guy who is is 260 pounds punching, that is not gonna be a feather. Anyways, i see it going two ways, Wilder by KO, or Fury by 12 rounds. Joshua still needs to prove himself, he fought a severely obese Andy Ruiz Jr, I feel as if he would stand no chance against Wilder. Joshua used his range game the whole fight against Ruiz, scared of contact, now you bring in Deontay Wilder, taller than Joshua, longer wingspan, and stronger than Andy Ruiz Jr, between Joshua and Deontay Wilder I say it is a no brainer. Wilder is also much more athletic than Andy Ruiz in general, especially compared to Ruiz on the night of Ruiz vs Joshua 2. Boxing is a very unpredictable sport though, so no one is guaranteed a victory, but if I were to guess, I would say Wilder in Round 5 vs Fury, and if he were to fight Joshua he would get him out of there within the first two rounds.

Andy Ruiz Jr is a great boxer, I feel like he would give Deontay Wilder trouble if they fought, similar to the presence of Luis Ortiz a bit, the problem is, on the night of Joshua vs Ruiz 2, he weighed in at 283 pounds, and for a 6 foot guy, tell me how this is not a cake walk for a 6'6 237 guy who is much quicker. Excuses are excuses, Joshua won that night, and he earned those belts, but I'm just saying, the man that he fought was not the same man he fought in June.
Mickie said on 8/Jan/20
Wilder may well KO Fury this time if he hits him with another shot like in the 12th round in their previous fight, but there wasn't really anything wrong with the count. The narritive that Wilder and many of his hard core fans have been saying is that the ref should have waived it off as a KO on the spot has, has no legs imo. The fact that Wilder couldn't finish him off and Fury fought well the rest of the fight shows that the ref played it right. Fury should have won the first fight, but I think Wilder will be favored by most experts to win the rematch because he always has that one punch KO power to bail himself out of trouble.
Jordan87 said on 7/Jan/20
I think Wilder is going to win their rematch. He has Seen what Fury is about and will land his " one big shot" Earlier than the last match. Fury won't get a long count either this time. Wilder is going to put his lights out.

Amazing though, Wilder weighed only 209 when he Fought Fury who was 260, and Wilder hits TONS Harder.
Murtuza said on 31/Dec/19
He is a very close 6’7”
Canson said on 16/Dec/19
I agree with Junior but maybe 6’6.25 is the better fit if both are the same. Although it’s possible Melo is 6’6 flat
Hassan123 said on 9/Dec/19
He looks about 6"7 to me.
Jordan87 said on 3/Dec/19
Audley Harrison has also Been Listed at 6'5 in the past, and Wilder doesn't look taller. Ortiz is not over 6'2, and Dillian Whyte is more 6'2-6'2.5".

Fury was listed at 6'7 once and I wilder is 6'6, that makes Senze.

Fury- 6'7"
Wilder- 6'5.5"
Whyte - 6'2.25"
Ortiz- 6'2"
Parker- 6'2.5"
Ruiz - 5'11.5"
Bazza said on 21/Nov/19
Just seen the face off between Wilder and Ortiz and Wilder dwarfs Ortiz who is billed at 6'4. No way he is that; 6'2 max possibly lower.
Anon11 said on 18/Nov/19
Dillian Whyte himself claims 6'3''. Check out his youtube channel where he said it a couple of months ago. I have stood next to him and I am around 189cm. He seemed very much around my height, give or take. He is definitely not 6'4''. Ortiz is also 6'3'' max, but more likely to be 188cm or so.
Robbe said on 10/Nov/19
@Xpac99, Wilder is barefoot, and Harrison is wearing shoes in your pic. Check the youtube video, and you will see.
Reno said on 9/Nov/19
Like Fury I think his posture is quite bad and he can seem shorter than he is.

I actually think he could be same as Breazaele.
Wilder looks inch shorter than Magic and is further away.

Also it makes me think that Fury is taller than Magic.

Wilder looks near 2 inches shorter than tyson fury. Why you don’t change the list?
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Oct/19
Deontay could be a flat 6'6 a low same as Carmelo Anthony.
Mickie said on 25/Oct/19
I thought I saw 6'3" billings for Ortiz at some point too. But yeah he could be 6'2.5" too.
Gman39 said on 25/Oct/19
Oh, and add Dillian Whyte to the the 6'3 at the most, club. Imo.
Gman39 said on 25/Oct/19
I agree with you about Ortiz, Robbe. And for the record, I think Pulev, Jarrell Miller, and Joseph Parker are all 6'3 tops.
Robbe said on 24/Oct/19
Ortiz is heavily overlisted, he is nowhere near 193cm. Here with 188-189cm Christian Hammer.

Click Here

So, Ortiz is max 189cm. Wilder looks 8-9cm taller.

Wilder looked tall next to Ortiz recently.

This man is 3cm taller than Wladimir maybe 6'6.25 in the Worst case.
Mickie said on 8/Aug/19
@ Robbe - Wilder could be taller than some here think. He does look taller than Washington. I'd say anything between 6'6" to 6'6.5" would be believable for Wilder, and I think he could wake up a solid 6'7" guy.
Robbe said on 1/Aug/19
Deontay is looking noticeable taller than 6'6 billed Gerald Washington.

Washington is obviously overlisted, here with 6'6.5 Helenius. That's not 0.5in difference.

Wilder looks actually slightly taller than Helenius, compared to Washington.

He didn’t look any taller than Carmelo. My guess is 6’6” flat and Melo could even be 6’6.25 like listed
Mickie said on 24/Jul/19
@Boxing fan 07 - I don't think Vitali is quite 6'7", but I also don't think he's under 6'6.5". He looked tall next to Lamar Odom. Wilder could be 6'6.5" too but I think that's the maximum he could be. There is a pretty strong case for him being 6'6" flat even (but no less imo).
Boxing fan 07 said on 18/Jun/19
Canson, I have trouble believing Vitali is 6’7”. He only looked 1.25” inches taller than Lewis.

Deontay is a solid 6’6” he barely looked shorter than Fury, Maybe Wilder was wearing boots
Canson said on 3/Jun/19
@184guy: I agree that Wlad isn’t under 6’5” but I have Vitali taller than Wilder. I have Wilder closer to 6’6” flat Vitali as weak 6’7”
Canson said on 3/Jun/19
agree with Mickie
Mickie said on 31/May/19
@184guy2 - Yeah like I said, some of those marks could be low balled. I think maybe Wladimir and Tyson Fury could be a quarter inch taller specifically.

Wlad - 6'5" (6'6" in the morning)
Fury - 6'7.25" - 6'7.5" (when standing well)

That might fit better. I think I'll leave my other estimates the same.

@Gman39: Yeah man, AJ is entering his peak of boxing and he will be a monster, I see a 50/50 as well, it is a fight all of us boxing fans want to see. Wilder has the power, but Joshua is a more traditional(better) boxer, he has monster power as well but Wilder is something else. Make no mistake that I'm not saying Wilder is a bad boxer skill wise, it is just that AJ is the best in the business when it comes to traditional boxing. And yeah, Fury is like a rubix cube, very tricky and awkward, he can't be figured out, but Wilder's boxing iq is incredible, if they do have a second fight, I favor Wilder.
@Mickie: You make a great point there, but yeah I'm tired of the mind games with Fury lol, don't get me wrong he is an incredible boxer, but like you said we all need to see Wilder fight AJ.
Mickie said on 29/May/19
I could be low balling some of them, but I'm starting to think this is at least possible:

Deontay Wilder - 6'6"
Anthony Joshua - 6'5.5" - 6'5.75"
Tyson Fury - 6'7" - 6'7.25"
David Price - 6'8"
Alex Ustinov - 6'6.75"
Wladimir Klitschko - 6'4.75"
Vitali Klitschko - 6'6.5"
Dominic Brazeale - 6'6.5"

Wilder tiptoeing with 6'6.5 Helenius. Earlier i thought Wilder is closer to 6'7, but now i think he might be just flat 6.6.

Mickie said on 27/May/19
@Ellis 6'8 - yeah? I tend to think Fury would have the advantage in the rematch. Just because he was able to essentially win the first match with a lot of ring rust. But you could certainly see a scenario where Wilder catches him like he can do to anyone. I wouldn't bet cash on that outcome though.

I'd really rather see a Wilder vs Joshua fight happen first personally. That's a fight that's really overdue. It'd be interesting to see how the two would compare height wise, too.
Gman39 said on 26/May/19
@Ellis 6'8: 100% agree on the heights. I think Joshua v. Wilder is a 50/50 fight right now, but I agree that within a year or two I would likely favor Joshua. I expect Wilder to KO Fury in a rematch.
Ellis 6'8 said on 23/May/19
@Gman39: 100%, and when they do fight I think it will be an upset. Wilder is around half an inch taller than Joshua, I have Joshua at 6'5.75, 6'5.5 at a low, and for Wilder 6'6.25, 6'6 at a low. If they keep waiting Joshua will knock him out lol, Joshua is gonna get better, Wilder is at his peak. My personal opinion is that if Wilder rematches Fury he will give him the Stiverne treatment, and he will knock out Joshua within 6 rounds. Joshua is a phenomenal boxer, but Wilders power is undeniable.

My impression overall is that Breazeale was the taller guy, edged Wilder by say 1/2 inch. They could look a full inch at times, and at times about the same. If Breazeale really is 6'6.5 then that makes 6'6 flat a possibility for Wilder. I think I remember there being a solid inch between Breazeale and Joshua, but I will have to go back and look at a few of their stare downs. I think that when Wilder and Joshua eventually face-off it will be very close height wise, but I do expect Wilder to edge him.
tim181 said on 20/May/19
Obviously Breazeale is taller, but strangely they are being billed the other way round in the fight.

movieguy12 said on 19/May/19
Wilder was given as 6'7'' and Breazeale 6'6.5'' in tale of the tape for last night's fight, previously both had been given as 6'7''. Initially looking at the video below posted by Mickie I thought Wilder was slightly shorter. However Breazeale has more hair and Wilder's eye level looks slightly higher. I'm not sure who is taller but I know who hits harder lol. Wilder is a massive puncher.

Canson said on 14/Apr/19
@Mickie: 6’6.25 is the most I could see for Melo. 6’6” is the worst case. As for Wilder, that’s possible. I think 6’6.5 morning height 6’6” at a low
Mickie said on 2/Apr/19
I could see Wilder 6'6.25" (which would be about the same as Carmelo, maybe it's just the photo that makes Carmelo look taller) and Vitali being 6'6 5/8" - 6'6.75". Vitali did hold up well next to Lamar Odom, I think he looked about 6'7" or at least 6'6.75".
Canson said on 30/Mar/19
@Mickie: it’s possible that the pic with Carmelo Anthony is favoring Anthony. Anthony looks taller than Wilder and he’s 6’6” himself. I could go as high as something like 6’6 5/8 and 6’6” for Wilder and Klitschko respectively but 6’6.5 isn’t a complete surprise especially being he only had about 1.5 on Wlad. Wlad admitted that he’s 6’6 out of bed 6’5 in the evening so it’s possible he comes down around that mark or slightly above it like 6’5 1/8
Canson said on 29/Mar/19
@Reece: wilder doesn’t look over 6’6” and Vitali is legitimately taller. He is close to 6’7” at a low. To be honest Carmelo looks taller than him and Melo is only around 6’6 or 6’6.25 in person
Canson said on 29/Mar/19
@Reece: wilder doesn’t look over 6’6” and Vitali is legitimately taller. He is close to 6’7” at a low

@Reece: wilder doesn’t look over 6’6”.
Mickie said on 28/Mar/19
I just can't see Vitali being more than a half inch taller than Wilder based on how they looked together. A half inch is still believable to me, but I can't see how there can be a bigger gap than that. If Wilder is a flat 6'6" I'm putting Vitali at 6'6.5" no higher. Personally I think Vitali would measure 6'6.75", and Wilder maybe something like 6'6.25" - 6'6 3/8".
Reece said on 28/Mar/19
@Canson.
Vitali is taller than Wilder but he wears dresser shoes to Wilder wearing trainers. I can see 6 foot 6 1/4 for Wilder.
Canson said on 27/Mar/19
@JD1996: I would guess 6’6 for Wilder, 6’6.75 for Klitschko 6’7.25 for Fury. Wilder looks around 3cm shorter than Fury in some pics and he can look the same height as other 6’6” listed boxers. Just as he looked a hair shorter possibly due to camera angle next to Carmelo Anthony who looked 6’6 or probably a hair over the mark. 198-199 is fair game for Melo like he is listed
movieguy12 said on 26/Mar/19
This guy only weighs just over 220 lbs which is really light for a modern heavyweight particularly one who is 6'7'' or thereabouts. He'd give away 30 maybe 40lbs in fights with Joshua or Fury. Yet Wilder may be the hardest puncher out of the three. Also he doesn't look skinny which you might expect from his weight and height but gives a 'big' impression. Tony Bellew was apparently thinking of fighting him as he weighed about the same as Wilder at one point, so in theory should be about the same size even if they have different builds. This changed when Bellew saw Wilder up close, he was shocked at how big he was and wisely abandoned any plans to fight him. I'd love Joshua, Fury and Wilder to all fight each other as it's hard to guess who will come out on top. Fury and Wilder had an incredible fight last year.
JD1996 said on 26/Mar/19
In my opinion and from what I've seen I think wilder a flat/solid 6'6" and vitali is a little taller for sure like 6'6.75"-6'7" zone
Canson said on 25/Mar/19
@Reece: I think Vitali legitimately has a height advantage on Wilder. It’s not just footwear. Just like Carmelo Anthony edges out Wilder in the pic (appears to at least) and Melo is right around 6’6-6’6.25 in person. Wilder is likely around the same height as Melo. Not 6’6.5 he’s probably a solid 6’6”
Reece said on 23/Mar/19
Vitali was most likely wearing dresser shoes which gave him a slight footwear advantage probably.25 of a inch . If Vitali is 6-6 3/4 200cm then Wilder is probably like 6-6 1/2 199.5cm.
Mickie said on 22/Mar/19
The only thing is, it's hard to explain a 6'6" flat Wilder with V Klitschko: Click Here

They looked the same height there (granted we can't see the footwear). Vitali is somewhere in the 6'6.5" - 6'6.75" range, I think it'd be hard to argue less.

I wonder about 6'6.25" for Wilder, but I given how he's held up with Vitali I have trouble going lower.
Gman39 said on 21/Mar/19
Dominic Breazeale, Wilder's next opponent is listed as 6'7. The height difference between Breazeale and Wilder looks exactly like what Fury looked with Wilder 1.0 - 1.5 inch difference.
Crane said on 15/Mar/19
He was showed to be 6'6 in the Fury fight. Not because Fury was 6'7.5 but because Wilder looked exactly to be 6'6 and Fury was listed at 6'7, when Fury was first making his Boxing debut. There's the 1 inch height gap between Wilder and Fury and Fury was listed 6'7 when making his debut and that's what make Wilder a 6'6.
Sotiris Gravas said on 14/Mar/19
Wilder and Audley Harrison are both 6'6"... Click Here (Tyson Fury is 6'7", 1" shorter than David Price.)
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
@184guy: if Melo does edge him I doubt it’s by as much as the picture suggests. Both 6’6” range more than likely and that’s a good point about footwear
Shneebs said on 11/Mar/19
My guess would be over 6’6” but not quite 6’6” 1/2. But don’t get me wrong still a scary ass dude.
184guy2 said on 5/Feb/19

Melo is a lot closer to the camera , even his face . And we also can't see their footwear so we can't make any 100% assumption
Mickie said on 11/Jan/19
Melo does look taller in that pic. Could just be the picture, but he does look like the taller guy there.
Canson said on 11/Jan/19
@Mickie: even with advantage Melo looks taller imho

Mickie said on 9/Jan/19
I think 6'6.25" could be a good estimate for Wilder late in the day. I imagine right out of bed, he can hit at least 6'7" if not higher.
Mickie said on 9/Jan/19
@Canson - they were very close - I thought Wilder edged him out.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
Wilder is not taller than Carmelo in fact it looks the opposite although maybe just due to camera angle. Either way Wilder shouldn’t be higher than 6’6” probably
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
He looks proportionately 6’6 in the pics
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Mickie: the link is no good as the video was removed. Is Pierce as tall?
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
Probably the most accurate estimate : 201 cm immediately after waking up , 199 cm before going to bed .

So the fairest thing to do is to list him as being 200 cm tall .

I ve seen the fight...I never paid attention to the height of these 2 big guys, but from the ring with the same footwear, Fury looked over 1 inc taller. Maybe Wilder is only 6 ft 6 or Fury is 6 ft 8??
At least 1.5 in difference and sometimes it can appears as 2.
miller said on 5/Dec/18
6.6 fury has atleast 1.5 inches on him also shorter than 6.6,25 carmelo anthony
Mickie said on 4/Dec/18
It was a great fight between one of the greatest boxers in Fury and one of the greatest punchers in Wilder. Fury should've won the decision, but Wilder showed why he's a world class fighter - still carrying massive knockout power into the 12th round which is insane. I think Fury did wobble Wilder in that round as well actually, but Wilder has a great chin.

In terms of height, I thought it was apparent that the difference was greater than Rob currently has it listed - which was a bit surprising. If Wilder is 6'6.5" I could believe 6'8" for Fury.
Ellis said on 4/Dec/18
@Jordan87: Yeah, Fury definitely won the fight, also people don't take into account that in the 12th round Fury actually got up re-energized. I think Fury made a good case for winning the twelfth besides the knockdown that made it very convincing he was out, he was catching Wilder once again and hitting him hard. I have much respect for Wilder, he was tanking a lot of punches in that fight. Many people may say that Fury is not a strong puncher, but once you are connecting as much as Fury was, anyone is gonna feel it. There was a lot of times also when Fury was punching through Wilders defenses, made him look very wobbly and vulnerable at times. I'm gonna say it, Tyson Fury might just be the greatest heavyweight on the planet, and Wilder is either second or third.
Johno said on 4/Dec/18
Yeah, the difference between them looked noticeable in the ring, i think Fury's reached helped him alot; honestly, he really made Wilder look shoddy. It is pretty ironic that with Wilder being the lighter guy, he gassed more quickly and looked out of it at times whereas Fury always looked like he had plenty of energy, even after the knockdowns, he finished stronger in them rounds. If i were part of the Wilder team, i would much rather face Joshua now as opposed to Fury, Fury is much too dangerous and he should of been awarded that win.

1-1.5 inches between them.
Ellis said on 3/Dec/18
Great fight last Saturday! I gotta say in the ring Tyson looked noticeably taller, not to the point were it was like 3 inches, but he was definitely taller, at times I felt sold on his 6'9 claim(taking into account the average boxers height inflation is about an inch). I'd say Fury is 1.5 inches taller than Wilder. If Wilder is 6'6.5, then Fury is 6'8. I think it goes like this,
Wilder: A little above 6'6
Fury: 6'7.5
Josh: 6'5.5
Jordan87 said on 3/Dec/18
Fury did appear noticeably taller than Wilder on Saturday night.

Was A Decent Fight. Fury at 256 pounds has Far less Power than 212 pound WIlder and that Showed. Fury was hitting him all damn night but took 1 Shot from Wilder to Floor him. Fury Won on Points, but was close to being Knocked out cold.

People Do not Give 212 Pound Wilder Enough Credit for being that hard of a Puncher. He is outweighed in every fight he has but his height Allows him to get more torque and leverage behind his punches.

Fury also clocked him alot and Wilder really was never in any danger of Being Knocked out.

Worth the Pay this fight was.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Mickie: he could still look about 199ish today. I was really surprised at how short Dennis Scott is. Scott was listed 6’8” but is really only about 6’5-6’6 in pics and he’s shorter than Wilkins by a bit
Robbe said on 10/Nov/18
Newest staredown. Both men seems to have about the same eyelevel, but Fury has bigger forehead. I can see at least 1cm difference there Click Here
Robbe said on 9/Nov/18
Wilkins looks nowhere near 6'7 with Larry Bird Click Here
Mickie said on 4/Nov/18
I wonder how tall Wilkins is today? He's only 58, so if he was 6'6.5" at his peak I wouldn't be surprised if he'd measure 6'6" now. Wilder does look slightly taller of the two guys. Personally I think Wilder is 199 - 200 cm range.
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Robbe: I think a peak Wilkins was similar with Rodman. May still he today. I had him as 199 range peak and 198-199 perhaps today. In that picture, Pippen isn’t standing straight. I would have Scottie as being the taller of the two
Robbe said on 3/Nov/18
Wilder looks slightly taller than Dominique Wilkins, who has been listed at 6'7, 6'7.5, and 6'8.

@ U I Oakafor - I mean, you just have to look at them in roughly equal footwear in NYC standing their tallest in a facepff to know Fury has got to be about an inch taller. Not 2" like the billing says, but still about an inch. It could be fractionally be above or below that.

As for who wins their fight, I don't have much of an opinion. I'm not a boxing guru, just a casual fan. Vegas favors Wilder, and I tend to think they're as good as anyone predicting odds. Personally I think of Fury a few years ago would've won, but a few years ago hardly matters anymore.
U I Okafor said on 13/Oct/18
@Mickie

He says he says taller so he can sell the fight. Quite a few people in the boxing community are very aware that Fury is 6'7 and have said as much. I have no idea why people insist on disputing it, he barely has an inch on Wilder and thats mostly down to him having a bigger head. The size difference is negligible and its bizarre someone can dispute it unless there is a vested interest in saying so. Lemme guess, you think Tyson is gonna beat him too yeah?
Mickie said on 6/Oct/18
I don't know why Robbe always thinks that Fury's shoes are thick (even when they're just loafers) and Wilder's shoes are always super flat (even when they're pretty normal).

Tyson is obviously the taller man when standing tall, which he doesn't do as often as he could. Meaning - he's the kind of guy that would measure a bit taller than he walks around. Wilder doesn't despute Tyson's 6'9" claim, more evidence of at least an inch gap being between them.

rob wilder 6/6 1/2 199 cm you doint think hes a full 6'7/? OUT BED MAYBE

Guys that tall could shrink 3cm from morning to night, or some near 4cm...there's very strong chance he comfortably wakes over 6ft 7.

Once again, Tyson has shoe advantage in Gman39,s video. Im still sticking to my estimation, 201cm for Fury, and 200cm for Wilder.
Mickie said on 4/Oct/18
It's funny how people can go on about them being the same height when we saw Wilder and Fury standing at their tallest both in similarly low heeled shoes with the camera at a nuetral angle at the New York presser. Fury was quite obviously taller. Any attempt to claim otherwise is dishonest. Wilder himself says Fury is taller than him.
Gman39 said on 3/Oct/18
And at today's press conference, looks like they are within 2cm. 21:15: Click Here

We really need these two in their bare feet.
Markus Okafor said on 3/Oct/18
Height is a funny thing. On some days you look taller and others you're shorter. I think wilder and fury are pretty close in height and it's not really debatable that they're not.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Oct/18
It's no surprise why Rob initially listed both Wilder and Fury as 6'7" when he first added them on the site. Goes to show you that they aren't that much different in height.
Mickie said on 3/Oct/18
As I posted on Fury's page - 9:22 is the money shot. Both men standing at full height: Click Here

Fury is standing 3 cm taller than Wilder. Each has a fairly low cut type of shoe on, neither would have more than a quarter inch advantage over the other imho.

Rob's listings for each fighter are pretty good.
Robbe said on 3/Oct/18
Lol, Fury looks like 5-6cm taller in Mickeys video, which cant be the case. Just check the whole pressvideo. Notice how Fury is looking up when he speaks to Wilder at 29:00 and onvards, that's because Wilder has higher eyelevel than Fury. But Fury has bigger forehead, so they come very close in heights.

And In press conference fury is shorter
Overall
Wider 6”7 or 6”7.5
Fury: strong 6”6 or 6”7
Wilder is taller either way

Mickie, the link you provided captures a moment where Fury went on to his tip toes. There is LESS than 1 inch between them. If I had to pick right now, I would say Fury is 1cm taller.

They were about the same height at the press conference. If you watch the whole thing, and examine the large batch of pictures that were released, this is quite clear. There is 1-2 cm between them at the very most, they are that close.

Fury was something like 3 cm taller than Wilder in their press conference today: Click Here
Jordan87 said on 29/Aug/18
No Way is Tyson more than an 1" taller than Wilder in their most recent staredowns. Fury was listed once at 6'7. ( He isn't taller). Wilder is described as 6'6.5" and is not taller than that.

Fury is slightly taller and is a better boxer. Wilder has more power. This could be a good fight.
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@184guy: I think Wlad is prob something like 6’5.25 at a low (196-196.5 range). For Wilder, it’s hard to say where I would place him. While he did measure 6’6.5 at one point, that may have been an earlier measurement. Unfortunately, the picture with Carmelo Anthony wasn’t a good one as Melo appeared taller but likely had camera advantage as well. I can say however that Melo is 6’6” in person maybe 6’6.25 tops. He looked closer to 6’6” than 6’7 in person. 6’6.25 may be his low or he could dip to a flat 6’6” but he didn’t look anything under that mark imho
184guy2 said on 23/Aug/18
Haha 2 inches ? No way
Barely 2 cm , probably half inch . Deontay is a lot closer to 6'7 than 6'6 like some suggest and again, Fury is not 6'8 , let alone 6'9 . The maximum he could be is the actual listing.He was visible shorter than Price , and also looked shorter than Wlad (in trainers with lifts) in some staredown . He is at most 2 inches taller than Wlad , who could be 196-197cm . Deontay could be anywhere in the 6'6.5-6'7 range. He was identical in height with Vitali .
Robbe said on 20/Aug/18
@Lanky, Tyson is actually standing very tall in staredowns, and often also tip toeing, trying to look as big as possible. He was tiptoeing with Wilder also. He is tip toeing in many pictures as well, with Wlad, with Wach, and with many others. Funny thing is, he also tiptoed with Sefer Seferi, who is around 180cm :D
Mickie said on 19/Aug/18
@Robbe - Tyson had 2" over Wilder when he came in the ring after Wilder's match. Yes there was a footwear advantage involved, but he had Wilder by 2" when he stood upright.
Lanky said on 19/Aug/18
I think we have to remember how poor Fury’s posture tends to be, too. On the rare occasion he stands straight, and holds himself well, I struggle to believe he doesn’t touch 6’8”. I can believe a strong 6’6” for Wilder.
Elohel said on 19/Aug/18
As I suspected, more underlisting being done by the fanboys. Fury has never looked anything resembling two inches taller than wilder. And last night proved that the height difference between them is negligible at best. Either Fury is being overlisted or Wilder is being underlisted. Hell, its probably both.
Robbe said on 19/Aug/18
@Mickie, Wilder is wearing flat sneakers in the latest staredown with Tyson. So he has only slight shoe advantage there, maybe 1cm, at the most. Tyson was wearing high healed dress shoes when he edged out Wilder. The difference was definitely not 2in, moore like 1in.

Click Here

So, if Wilder is as listed, Tyson is no moore than 6'7. But then again, if Wilder is a legit 6'7 as many tends to believe, then Tyson is easily as listed.
Robbe said on 19/Aug/18
Not even an inch.. Click Here
Mickie said on 18/Aug/18
Gman39 appeared to be right about the footwear making a difference. Tyson looked 2 inches taller than Wilder in the ring when Wilder was boxing, but appeared maybe a hair shorter when Fury was boxing. In reality, this means Fury is probably about an inch taller than Wilder if both are in equal footwear but not more than that.
Gman39 said on 6/Aug/18
Fury had shoe advantage in the ring with Wilder. Boxing shoes have very thin soles, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch. I'll be surprised if Fury is anything more 1 ich taller than Wilder when they finally face off.
Mickie said on 6/Aug/18
Wilder is basically as listed. The photos with Carmelo - they're not ideal for telling his exact height, but they do strongly suggest against any notion that he's above 2 meters, even if he's at a disadvantage in the picture. Wilder was noticeably taller than Wladimir, and very similar in height with Vitali (who is more like 6'65" - 6'6.75" than the full 6'7"). Wilder was noticeably shorter than Tyson Fury, although the exact differential was hard to tell. Rob has Fury at 6'7.5". Fury's most recent billing was 6'8.75", which would seem to be a possible shoe height or morning height (in the best case for Fury). So again, thinking Wilder is anything above 6'6.5" isn't supported by his Fury stare down.
movieguy12 said on 1/Aug/18
Wilder and Vitali look exactly the same height as someone has posted. Both are genuine 6'7'' guys I believe. Wilder is very lean. Weighs 2 stone less than Joshua although an inch taller. The politics behind the Wilder Joshua fight is rubbish. The best fighters avoiding each other with their scheming promoters has helped to push boxing out of the mainstream of sports.
Canson said on 2/Jul/18
@184guy: very true about the pic. My guess would be 196ish for Wlad
Reece said on 2/Jul/18
Wilder height shows well on that vid. Shows Fury is at least 1 inch taller so less than 6-7.5 202cm is hard to believe for him. I thought 6-6.5 199.5 cm is a good guess for Wilder.
184guy2 said on 2/Jul/18
@Canson
I don't think Wilder is just 2cms taller than Wlad, More like 3 and his pic with Carmelo is not good at all to judge.
Canson said on 27/Jun/18
@Robbie: I would say Vitali is taller. I could see Wilder being a morning 6’6.5 or close to it (6’6.25-.5 AM) and dipping to about 6’6”. He’s no taller than Melo if even. Vitali yea I can see 6’6.5 at a low
Robbe said on 26/Jun/18
Vitali and Wilder seems to be exactly the same height in that video.

Click Here

Big question is are both 6'6.5 or 6'7. It can also be the matter of footwear. Anyway, both men are around 200cm. Same league as Helenius, Cornick, Breazeale, Granat, and Wach.

Reece said on 2/Apr/18
@Jordan87. Wilder won late. But he had to dig deep. 40-0 with 39 KO now.
Canson said on 4/Mar/18
Overlisted. He’s not as tall as Carmelo Anthony I doubt and if he is it means he’s 198-199. 6’6.5 is possible maybe an hour or so after waking but he’s 6’6” flat maybe 6’6.25 at his lowest
Canson said on 17/Feb/18
I think the 6’7” is rounded up. He may be that out of bed or near it and may dip down to 6’6” flat at night. Likely the 6’6.5 is somewhere in between during the morning as most athletes are measured earlier in the day some even get their shoe heights listed. He could very well only be 6’6 7/8 out of bed and 6’6.5 an hour on his feet or could’ve even been 6’6.75 and gotten 6’6 3/8 and been rounded up. Next to Carmelo Anthony he doesn’t look 6’6.5. Melo is favored but I think at best they’d be about the same or Melo could edge him still by a cm making him a potential 6’5 7/8 or 6’6 at a low
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/18
@ Reece,

Yes Ortiz comes in at very good angles for heavyweight of his size. Ortiz should on paper at least provide a much better opponent to Wilder than Stiverne did ( Good Christ was that second fight a Butchering).

Correct, Wilder certainly has Power I will give him that.Very long arms too.
Reece said on 15/Feb/18
Wilder is very fast and has lots of stamina. His power is scary. He is not as technically skilled as other greats like the Kiltschko Brothers,Lewis. I think Wilder will stop Ortiz in the middle Rounds. Ortiz is dangerous though as you said.
Jordan87 said on 12/Feb/18
Wilder has the build of Floyd Mayweather except is nearly a foot taller. Throws wild punches from odd angles, but thus has been effective. I think if Mr. Ortiz catches him though he will be in a world of trouble.
Canson said on 7/Feb/18
@Kiwi lad: I think he would still be a full 6’6” in the evening worst case but it’s possible he and Melo could be the same height. I know when I met Melo he looked roughly 2” taller than me. People around us said 1.5-2” but I’ll say he’s for sure not under 6’6 (probably not even quite that low) and likely isn’t much higher than 6’6.25. Maybe 199 is a possibility since it’s so close but I doubt he is 6’6.5 or anything above that as a low. It to me looked “about” 5cm (I’m anywhere 193.7-.9 so he could be maybe and 198.5-199 could be on the money)

So they are the same height, when Harrison is wearing shoes, while Wilder is barefoot. My guess is Wilder is 199cm, and Harrison 197cm.

However... This image would indicate that Wilder is actually taller than Harrison. Perhaps they are actually virtually the same, and footwear differences alter things drastically.

198-197cm for both ??

These images also suggest he is shorter than the 197/198cm Audley Harrison

Click Here

What does that make Lewis these days? 6'3 ? ( He was 50 at the time of this picture, and looks in relatively good shape still) Makes me think he was closer to 6'4 flat in his prime.
Kiwi lad said on 5/Feb/18
@Canson: Yea I have taken into account that Melo is slightly in front of the camera. If deontay moved forward to Melo's level I could still see Melo edging him by about a cm. Wilder could be a morning 6'6.5 and dip below 6'6 later in the day.
Canson said on 4/Feb/18
@Kiwi Lad: Melo had a camera advantage too. My thinking is Wilder could be a legit 6’6” guy still and been 6’6.5 in the morning
Kiwi lad said on 4/Feb/18
hypothetically ...

Click Here - 6'6.25 / 198.5cm Carmelo edges Wilder, lets say by 1cm.. making wilder 6'5.75 / 197.5cm

Click Here
Click Here

Fury could then in theory be 199.5 - 200.5cm / 6'6.5 - 6'6.9cm (looks a good 2-3cm taller then deontay)

Rob, how tall does Luis Ortiz look with Wilder?
Editor Rob
Looks under his 6ft 4 claim by 1.5 inches more than likely.
even said on 25/Jan/18
the best answer : out of bed = 200 cm , after 24 hours of hard work = 198 cm
Canson said on 21/Jan/18
He’s at best 6’6- 6’6.25 at a low like Carmelo is
Will said on 19/Jan/18
@christian yes I know. I’m just saying that we see him in the ring with boxing boots on
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 16/Jan/18
@Will

Of course it matters. On Celebheights we estimate celebs based on their barefoot height. Wilder's height in boots is irrelevant.
Will said on 14/Jan/18
Barefoot height doesn’t matter. The height that matters is the height while wearing boxing boots since that’s what he performs in. I’d say probably 6’6.25” when he’s standing in the ring at night with boxing boots on.
Canson said on 9/Dec/17
@6’2.5wannabe6’6: is that nickname a joke or do you really want to be 6’6” lol? 6’2.5 is a damn good height honestly. I’m 6’4 and some change and if I had to choose between growing to 6’6” vs losing 2-2.5” I’d easily choose the latter. 6’6” barefoot if it’s a height you hold throughout the day is too damn tall lol. Even 197 is imho
Canson said on 22/Nov/17
@Reece: I’m not buying him being taller than Carmelo Anthony is. And I’ve met Carmelo so nobody can sit here and try to inflate him he is exactly as his pre draft states
Reece said on 21/Nov/17
I would say more
Tyson Fury 6-8 203cm
Deontay Wilder- 6-6 1/2- 6-6 3/4 199-200cm
Wladimir Kiltschko- 6-5 1/2-6-5 3/4 197-197.5cm
Canson said on 19/Nov/17
@Exorcist: agreed. I can’t see Deontay taller than 6’6.25 Melo. Melo is slightly favored in the pic imho but I’ll say they’re prob close in height nor can we see their footwear there in the pic below but fury and wlad look the heights you have for them. Deontay 1” on Wlad, Fury 1” on Deontay. 6’6 1/2 for Deontay could just be an earlier measurement in the day and him dipping to Where Melo is is very reasonable in the afternoon as Melo actually looks his draft height in person compared to other NBA players

Click Here
The Exorcist said on 19/Nov/17
Taller than Wlad, shorter than Fury.

Tyson Fury: 6'7.25"
Deontay Wilder: 6'6.5"
Wladimir Klitschkho: 6'5.25"

Deontay would be at his rock-bottom low after a boxing match. Fury was probably in a decent dress shoe - considerable footwear advantage over Wilder's boxing shoes.
Canson said on 18/Nov/17
@Ice: yes you can call me a downgrader but at least I’m not a fanboy who is insecure about my height and has to lie about it and wish i were taller like you do because you’re inadequate! Do you think anyone on this site takes your sorry a$$ seriously when you say you felt short at 6’2? If you were ever even that tall? And you’re seriously challenging me about 1/4” when rob has him listed at 6’6.5? And my basis comes from a pic with Carmelo Anthony. So what do you want me to inflate Carmelo’s height just to make Wilder taller? I think the assessment on Wilder’s height is more than generous considering i took into account he isn’t standing straight otherwise i would’ve probably said he’s 6’5 range. Think before you attempt to insult someone. Especially someone who has no room whatsoever to critique someone else after all of your comments over the years

He’s no taller than Carmelo no chance he’s 6’7”. His 6’6.5 likely is a a bit earlier and he’s 6’6-6’6.25

I can see 6'7" being his morning height, but certainly not afternoon or night.
Jordan said on 15/Jun/17
looks 6'7" to me
Reece said on 13/Jun/17
Not only was the camera angle in his favour but he was standing much better than Wilder to. Wilder can look 6-6.5 or 6-7 to me. He looks very tall next to Lennox Lewis like 6-7 and other times he looks more 6-6.5. Showtime listed him as this so it is very possible.
Canson said on 12/Jun/17
He's no more than maybe 198- 199. Carmelo Anthony looked taller in their pic because he was favored but more likely they are the same height. Melo in person is absolutely no worse than a legit 6'6" no more than maybe the 6'6.25 pre draft. Looked a strong 6'6" in person 198-199
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 31/May/17
@Ollie

Duhaupas is more like 193 or a tad under. His 195 listing is most likely his shoe height.
Leon said on 28/May/17
200/201cm imo.
Ollie said on 14/May/17
Click Here. Looks 6-7 201cm with 195cm Boxer Duhaupas.199cm is good no less though.
Reece said on 2/May/17
Could be a strong 6-3 like 6-3.5. I don't think he is under that though. He looked a fair bit shorter than Wlad when Parker came into his camp
anon said on 2/May/17
Reece could be a weak 6'6 Its possible Joshua is 6'5.5- 6'5.75 tho looking, I dont think He would be under 6'5.5 really wlad could be similar tbh but I will have to check them out some more.

On Deontay the 199cm listing could be accurate he had at least 4 Inches on Tony Bellew and a fair bit on Jonny Nelson who must be what 6'2?

Reece how tall would you guess Joseph Parker he gets listed 6'4, 6'3 range?
Reece said on 30/Apr/17
@ Anon. Do u think AJ is 6-6. Wlad was clearly taller. Check the pic of Wlad wearing his black robe on. I think AJ is a strong 6-5
anon said on 30/Apr/17
Yh 6'6.5 could be bang on, I wouldn't go any lower, I think he would be a bit taller than the 6'6 Anthony Joshua, the 2 could face eachother very soon

Wilder is a easy 6-7 look at him in yesterday interview with Johnny Nelson he towers over overybody.

there is no way Wilder is 196cm. he is 199cm at least
Mathew Robinson said on 15/Apr/17
6'6.5" is good for Wilder. While he isn't dwarfed by Tyson Fury, he's obviously not as tall either.
Robbe said on 10/Apr/17
I watched again the video where Fury climbs into the ring, and the difference is actually less than an inch. This is definitely the best shot to estimate their heights, both men standing tall, no bad camera angles.

Click Here

When they start to shout eatchother, its hard to see the difference, cause they are bending down and moving sideways. Remember also that Fury has footwear advantage there. Im not surprised if Fury really is no moore than 201cm.
Ollie said on 10/Apr/17
Have you not seen Fury and Wilder pictures. they met in 2013 and Fury looked 4-5cm taller. in the Ring with a heel advantage though Fury was a couple inches taller. I am Confused how you have Wilder and Fury only 0.25 inches apart. even if Wilder is 6-6.5 like i think then their is still more than 0.5-0.75. Rob i think u need to look at more pictures of Fury and Wilder Tyson Fury is listed too low. Wilder is 199cm and Fury can look a good 4-5cm taller. And if Wilder is somehow 6-7 which i think not Fury should be put in the 6-8 range. just look at him with David Price who is a massive guy himself certainly not under 6-8 1/2 and likely the full 6-9 he only looks a bit shorter like 0.25-0.5 inch not a full inch.
Editor Rob: given that Wilder was being called 6ft 6.5 a few years ago, I think it is probably reasonable to say he has rounded to 6ft 7.
Reece said on 8/Apr/17
even if Wilder 6-6.5 then i doubt Fury is 6-7 or 6-7.25. Fury would probably be at least 4cm taller. Fury looked a couple inches taller in the ring but he did have a footwear advantage of half a inch probably. in another meet up in 2013 Fury looked a couple inches taller too.seems to be more than 0.5 or 0.75 taller than Wilder.
Cvgo said on 5/Apr/17
How can you only have Fury a cm taller? At the minimum he's an inch taller.
Editor Rob: I won't rule out 6ft 6.5 for Wilder.
Ollie said on 3/Apr/17
Wilder seems to be under 6-7 but not by much. Wilder is 6-6.5 to me and showtime listed him as this.
Robbe said on 1/Apr/17
@Reece, pictures you posted are terrible angles lol Wilder looks 4in taller than Lewis and 5in taller than Arreola. Cmon man..

The last picture i posted Wilder vs Kelvin Price is perhaps the best picture to judge their heights. Both men standing tall, face to face. No bad camera angles. To me Price looks taller. Once again, the camera angle on stair down (in the match) favours Wilder. Im surprised you seem not to pay any tension on camera angles when you post these links?
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Reece: I respect your opinion. However I have a strong feeling that if Wilder were "clearly" taller in the picture than Carmelo that you wouldn't be saying "we can't see the footwear" in that comparison. It's only because Wilder is shorter than Melo. Christian said it perfectly below. Melo is the same height with Gronk and Wilder is the same at best with them. They are all 6'6" guys at best strong 6'6". Remember that "most" athletes are A. Measured in the morning B. When they measure they throw a fraction on them as well. I know this much having played college ball and having former players I played with in both that level and AAU go pro. Of course there is the exception to that in many cases but it is something to remember
Reece said on 1/Apr/17
Camerlo Antony pic we dont know who has more in footwear plus in that pic Wilder look shorter but why not post the vast majority he looks 199cm and even 6-7 their are lots of then. same with Tyson Fury. you guys do a good job of cherrypicking to prove Wilder is 6,5.5 and 6-6 and Fury is just 6-7.Click Here Wilder towering over Lennox Lewis.Click Here Chris Arreola who is 6-3.5 and Wilder towers over him.Wilder clearly looking taller than Washington who is 6 foot 6.Wilder looks a easy 6-7 and the vast majority of pictures.
Reece said on 1/Apr/17
Wilder was a inch taller. Wilder is much taller than Lennox in Pictures. So now you say Wilder is shorter than 6-6.Click Here 4.13 Wilder is a inch taller when both stand straight and was the taller man.I believe Fury if he says he is 6-9 he is that in the morning and later in the day he would drop to 6-8. Downgrading by two inches gains nothing but if it makes you feel better its fine. Wilder shorter than 6-6, Fury 6-7. Wilder is listed 6-7 and Fury 6-9 for a reason they must have measured that at somepoint. Wilder is not max 198 he is max 199cm and he is taller than price all u need to do is look at the Stare down.Wilder is more than a inch and a half taller than Lennox he looks more 2.5 taller than Lennox.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 1/Apr/17
Wilder's no taller than Carmelo Anthony and Rob Gronkowski. All 3 of them are pretty much identical.
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
P.S.

Wilder is ofcourse cleary taller than Lennox Lewis who claims to be 6'4.5"
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
I agree with everything you said Robbe. I'll give wilder the benefit of the doubt and say he's Melo's height tops. Fury as 201 maybe 202 and Wlad 195.5-196.5
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder wasnt an inch taller than Kelvin in their fight. Kelvins boxing style is quite funny, his legs are spread wide open when he fights, so he looks shorter than he is. And all the pictures i have seen, Kelvin is taller than Wilder. Including the pictures you have posted. Kelvins head is tilted down, and he is still hair taller than Wilder. Wilder is max 198cm.
Paul said on 31/Mar/17
@Reece. how tall do you think Fury is? he looked near identical with David Price
Reece said on 31/Mar/17
What about Wilder looking clearly taller than Lennox Lewis or him looking much taller than Washington and Nicolas Furtha? Their are loads of pictures of Wilder looking 6-7? Well I guess we all have our own opinions. All you need to do is look a Fury tower of 195-196cm Charles Martin and see him keep towering over tall guys like his Cousin Hughie who some people keep calling 6-4 to figure he can't just be 6-7. Vitali Kiltschko is the best example of a 6-7 and Fury is obviously taller than him a Fury was near him after he beat Wlad.
Reece said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder was a inch taller in their fight Kevin was listed as 6-6. So one picture of Wilder looking shorter means he is 6-6. When in most pictures he looks a strong strong 6-6 or even 6-7. Every boxer seems to lieing. As for Fury being 6-7 that is pure downgrading.Their is more chance he is 6-9 than 6-7 by far.
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
Wilder is definitely shorter than Kelvin Price Click Here

Im not sure how tall Kelvin Price really is, he is listed both 6'6 and 6'7. Anyway, Wilder is not 6'7, that's plain obvious. If Kelvin Prise is 6'6", then what is Wilder?

There are many pictures of Wilder and Fury together, but its really hard to say how much taller Fury is due to bad camera angles. In the ring difference looked around 3-4cm, but Fury had heel advantage. In my opinion Fury is max 3cm taller than Wilder, so that makes Fury 202cm. But if Wilder is 198cm, like i think, Fury is no moore than 201cm.
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
I agree with you Christian. He is over listed. Maybe he's a full 6'6" but wouldn't surprise me if he's 6'5.5 or 197-197.5 tops. That would make him 6'7" in shoes. But here on this site it's well he claimed 6'7" so so and so must be 6'8" since he's taller.
Canson said on 30/Mar/17
@Reece: yes not everyone upgrades but many do. I believe Wilder is Tho. He was shorter than Carmelo Anthony was or at most his height. Melo is a full 6'6" maybe 6'6.25 I'd say somewhere in the middle. Fury i don't know but I trust Rob. I don't go off what other "supposed" 6'7s are listed. I can look at him next to Wlad who is honest about his height and claims 6'5" because he knows he is
Reece said on 30/Mar/17
i meant taller than Vitali not Tyson lol
Reece said on 29/Mar/17
@Canson.Well it is a downgrade. not every boxer lies about their height but some could do. Fury is taller than 6-7 guys so he cannot be just 6,7.25. and if he is taller than 6-7.5 Ustinov who himself is taller than Tyson Fury then he cannot be just 6-7.25.Upgrade is what Fury likely should be.
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
Reece I agree on Aj when it comes to Nick but how is someone downgrading the other guy Fury when Rob has him 6'7.25/.5 already. That's not downgrading him. You're upgrading him instead.
Canson said on 27/Mar/17
@Robbe: agree and I've met Carmelo Anthony. I'm 194cm (more precisely 193.9 normal low) and he's at absolute most 2" taller and it's actually more 1.5-2". I'd say he's nothing below 6'6" and no more than 6'6.25
Robbe said on 27/Mar/17
Carmelo is not standing properly there either, like said. Audley Harrison looks like an inch shorter than Joshua, who is probably 197,5cm. So that makes Harrison 195cm Click Here On the other hand, Harrison was pretty much the same height as Wilder in the weight in Click Here which was quite surprising. There are many pictures of these men in the net, sometimes Harrison looks taller, Sometimes Wilder.

In the fight i couldn't notice any difference between these fighters. Both looked the same height. It would be interesting to see Joshua and Wilder face to face. They are probably pretty much the same height.
Reece said on 26/Mar/17
Keyed pic Wilder is leaning on the guy so he is not standing up straight. Wilder was taller than Audley Harrison who looks like a really strong 6-5 or 6-6. Harrison did not look under 6-6 with Haye. Wilder 6'6.5 to 6-7. Showtime had Wilder as 6'6.5 that seems accurate. Wilder is a good bit taller than Lennox Lewis he looked the full 6-7 with Lennox. Just because Wilder looks a bit shorter in one pic doesn't mean he is not 6-6.5 or 6-7. People love downgrading on this site. Especially to Tyson Fury and AJ
