But he looks easily over 6’2” with Tyson...I don’t get where you’re coming from with that
Lord Humongous said on 25/Apr/19
Based on him being next to Mike Tyson not more than 6'2 - Whyte is also a liar about his height he's around 6'2 and he looked pathetic wearing those lifts trying to look tall against Joshua.

Yes Big T, Malik has close to 2 inches on Ortiz. Is Malik under-listed? I still like 6'2.5 for Ortiz but the jury is out..
Big T said on 2/Aug/18
Gman- for another point of comparison look at Ortiz with 6'4" Malik Scott.
Gman39 said on 2/Aug/18
Big T: You make a very well thought out argument and you may well be spot on. However, I took a look at the Allen-Ortiz weigh in and while Allen has time to get his sneakers back on, Ortiz gets right off the scale barefoot and goes straight to the face-off. While we can't see their feet to be sure, I suspect a footwear disadvantage here and I think Ortiz is close to 6'3 barefoot.

I don't want to keep harping on the point but I think "a fraction" is underselling it slightly. The height difference was small but clear, and accentuated by Parker's much longer head. It was apparent not only in stare downs but in the ring. Less than an inch but more than 1cm, imo.
Now to add to that- if you look at weigh in pics of Whyte with Dave Allen, they are almost identical but with Whyte perhaps a fraction taller- very hard to split though. Allen has admitted to being 6' 2 1/2" barefoot despite being listed taller.
Allen was slightly but clearly taller than Luis Ortiz, who is listed at a generous 6'4".
Put all that together, I can't see Parker being less than an inch taller than Ortiz. Maybe I am splitting hairs but I just think he's a good solid 6'3", not a 6' 2 1/2" or weak 6'3" like the average guess suggests.
imo- Parker 6'3"
Whyte and Allen maybe 6'2 1/4"-6'2 1/2" max
Ortiz- 6'2" or a fraction less
Parker anywhere below 6'3" and you have to drag everyone else down even further
Bazza said on 26/Jul/18
Maybe a fraction taller than Whyte at face off. I go 190 for Parker and 189 for Whyte.
Gman39 said on 10/Jul/18
I'm with you Big T, but I do think Parker is a weak 6'3. Joyce is in very thin soled boxing shoes there, so he is at a footwear disadvantage.
Big T said on 8/Jul/18
I'm not seeing it Gman. Parker is clearly standing behind Haye who has camera advantage. If you are buying Parker only being 6'2"ish from that then you'd have to drag Joyce down a bit too. To me it looks like what it is: a 6' 1.5"- weak 6'2" with camera advantage, a 6'3" guy in the background, and a big 6'5.5" with them

Parker and Haye looking very close in height: Click Here
Robbe said on 20/Jun/18
I did'nt spot their footwear, anyone? Whyte was dressed more relaxed, maybe Parker had shoe advantage there?
Big T said on 19/Jun/18
That photo is pretty good although if you watch the video of their encounter that's as close as Whyte ever looked. As the slightly shorter man he was straining for height more than Parker.
Whyte has an unusually small head which also makes him comparatively shorter than he may appear as his shoulder height is very high for someone his height.
said on 18/Jun/18
Parker looked 2cm taller than Whyte.
Whyte is around 188cm, he was roughly at Helenius eyelevel when they met.

This really begs the question once again of how tall Jonah Lomu really was and how his ailing health affected his height even at a young age
Big T said on 13/Jun/18
The photos on Parker's instagram really are all over the place re: height. He is one of those guys who often looks a lot shorter than he is with shorter guys. Also with guys like David Haye he looks 1-2 inches taller and then suddenly looks the same height. He's taller than Whyte but looks shorter than Bellew when they are together, but Bellew is in dress shoes doing some weird stiff pose literally every single time.
I think Joe is just a guy who doesn't care about height while the likes of Bellew in particular are always straining to look as tall as possible.

Here's a different pic of Parker and Mike Tyson, as well as 5'10" UFC fighter Mark Hunt (he is an interesting one too as I believe he consistently looks taller than 5'10" compared to his opponents)
Parker definitely still looks a good 6'3" with little Mike
Big T said on 11/Jun/18
I thought Parker was pretty clearly taller. Not a big difference but not ‘I can hardly split them’ territory
Gman39 said on 10/Jun/18
Parker and Whyte were VERY close in height at the face off. Parker was about 1.5 inches taller than Holyfield in a recent pic. I think Whyte may be more like 6'2.5. and Parker near 6'3.
said on 7/Jun/18
Rob July 28th Joseph parker will be fighting dillian whyte. So will dillian be able to get a page after this fight?
I need to look at him again.
Big T said on 7/Jun/18
As I predicted, Parker was clearly taller than Whyte when they had their face-off today
Robbe said on 11/May/18
First of all, David Haye is not 6'3, he is moore like 6'1.5, maybe 6.2 at the best. Secondly, Joshua and Parker were both wearing same kind of sneakers at the stare down. Joshus was easily 3in taller. Parker is only slightly taller than 189cm Bellew. So he is defo not over 6'3.
kurtis smiler said on 8/May/18
u cant acurately guage someones height by looking at photos people comparing joshua and parker standing eye to eye first off you are not taking into consideration the shoes they would have to be wearing the same height shoes, the floor there both standing on might not be even. might be a bit higher on one side. david haye is listed at 6ft 3 and in there photo together parker is clearly taller
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 12/Apr/18
I don't think Parker's quite 6'3". The photo angle favors him over Mike Tyson.
Dantes said on 11/Apr/18
3 - 3.5 inches shorter than AJ so around 190 . Great young boxer, will be a contender for many years to come.
joe joe said on 9/Apr/18
Biled at 6'4 and looks no where near it just like Dillian Whyte. I would say he is around 6'2.5 at a push 6'3
Faza said on 6/Apr/18
Yh good listing 6ft3 at worst he looks 6ft2.5 maybe 189- 190cm at worst imo he is listed 6ft4 like dillian whyte and he looks shorter too tho no idea what parker claims himself good boxer really humble dude he seems too glad he has a page on here now
Jenuin said on 6/Apr/18
In this photo with Mike Tyson, he looks 6'3. but my guess 6ft 2 1/2
said on 6/Apr/18
We all know the distance from your eyelevel to your mouth is 7-7,5cm. You can cleary see Joshua edges Parker out by moore than 7-7,5cm. If you dont believe, measure from the screen.
So its quite easy math, Joshua is at least 8cm taller than Parker. If Joshua is as listed, Parker is 189,5cm. Reece's comment "no more than 192cm" was quite funny. Even a blind man can see the difference is way moore than just 5.5cm. So Parker is at the best moore like a weak 6'3, rather than a "good" 6'3.
Reece said on 4/Apr/18
Parker looks a good 6 foot 3 to me. Certainly no more than 6-3 1/2 though.
Flyin said on 3/Apr/18
Arr boxers measured in the morning then rounded off to the nearest inch, hence the 6'4 billing?.
Gman said on 3/Apr/18
@and: In the pic with Parker and Haye in the boxing ring, it is very likely Haye is in boxing shoes with a minimal thickness sole. Haye's hands are wrapped, so he is doing a boxing workout while Parker was there visiting, likely wearing sneakers. I think Parker has significant shoe advantage there.
Robbe said on 3/Apr/18
@Big T, i know they fought eatc other, but i could't find a decent picture to judge their real height difference. In some pictures they are the same height, in some Parker is an inch taller, in some maybe moore, depending the camera angle. In the weigh in camera angle is also bad, Parker is closer to the camera. That's why i made the comparision picture.
Parker is somewhere between 189-191cm. He looks at least 3in shorter than Joshua, so 190cm might be the right answer.
t180rm said on 2/Apr/18
I think this guy is 190cm/6'3" boxer, not the heaviest out there but not exactly the lightest. Fought really well against Joshua, he lost only on the reach he has which is quite short for his size, would like to see them fight again with a different ref. He fought Hughie Fury who is about 6'6" and didn't look too much shorter than him though he isn't 6'4".
He edged Takam out by about an inch and a half in their fight, taller than David heye by like an inch and a half, and in most of the photos with Tony Bellew (189cm) looks at least a cm taller, that video was just a bit weird
Gman said on 2/Apr/18
I'm going with 6ft2.75 as I think his possible range is 6ft2.5 to 6ft3. I'm pretty sure 6'4 is either with sneakers/shoes or somebody was pretty bad at measuring him.
Big T said on 2/Apr/18
Parker is taller than Whyte too.
Big T said on 2/Apr/18
also- Parker has more than an inch on David Haye, who Rob has met and listed 6’2”
Big T said on 2/Apr/18
@Robbe- but Parker actually fought Takam, so why not compare them directly. He was about 2 inches taller.
Bazza said on 2/Apr/18
Certainly not 6'4. I could give him the 6'3 rob has him at but it is more likely he is a shade under it
said on 2/Apr/18
David Haye is less then an inch shorter than Parker. It's basically the distance between the eye and the eyebrow between them: Click Here
EzioAuditore711 said on 1/Apr/18
I think he's 6'2.5''.
said on 1/Apr/18
I made a comparision between Carlos Takam (187cm) vs Parker, compared to Joshua. Tip of Carlos head reaches Joshuas eyebrows, while Parker's head reaches just above Joshua's eyebrows. Means Parker cant be more than an inch taller than Takam. 187cm + 2,5cm = 189,5cm. It's totally out of the question Parker is 6cm taller than Takam. Beats me where the 6'4 claim is taken from. Morning height + shoes?
Reece said on 1/Apr/18
Haye is probably in the 6-1.5 6-1.75 range. 6 foot 3 would make sense for Parker. No more than 6-3.25 maybe.
said on 31/Mar/18
And here with 6`2 David Haye. He looks easily 5 cm taller than Haye
said on 31/Mar/18
He is listed boxrec 6`4
said on 31/Mar/18
Parker is obviously very poor at judging heights. He thinks he is not much shorter than Joshua.
He should watch his own eyes the weigh-in from youtube and see how he is dwarfed by Joshua.
Gus said on 31/Mar/18
6'3 bang on.
Voltaire said on 30/Mar/18
It's crazy how he's listed at 6'4 on a lot of sites. When he faced off with AJ at the weigh-in, he looked nowhere near that. AJ had at least 3 inches on him.
Nick92 said on 30/Mar/18
I would personally have said he was 6ft2.5-6ft2.75 Because dillian whyte edges him out a little when they stood together I would put dillian at 6ft3.

Zampo said on 30/Mar/18
It's weird that he claims 6'4 as I don't think he would ever measure it even straight out of bed. I wonder where he got that figure. Boxing listings are usually pretty accurate (1/2 inch within or so).
said on 30/Mar/18
Looks shorter than 189cm listed Tony Bellew Click Here
But i agree with this listing, 190,5cm is close enough. That is what he generally looks like with other boxers, inc pic above.
said on 30/Mar/18
Is 6'2.5 a possibility Rob? he just never seemed like a solid 6'3 guy to me, i mean he looks 6'3 in that picture with Mike but we can't see the footwear.
I think 6ft 3 is probably the most I would say, 6ft 2.5 might be the lowest I'd argue.
