Rob you've got it wrong by 1 inch. In his amatuer days they wondered how big he was and measured him before his fight vs Alexiy Lezin. He was measured 6'10.

Fair enough, Rob. You are right to say that his head is a good foot!
Fern194cm-192cm said on 20/Apr/14
There is a picture Of Nicolai with legit as legit can be 6,7 (probably 6,7 and change) Vitali In St. Petersberg which illustrates a nice 4 inch difference. He also has a huge head. Legit 6,11 maybe taller to be honest as he is always slouching. I think 6,11.5 is more fair, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not sure he would be that, although not impossible, I think 6ft 11 still looks ok with guys like haye/holyfield.

I suppose with his genuine large head size (probably near 12 inch) it can lead to imagining him shorter.]
avi said on 17/Jan/14
He looks like a blown up 6'1 guy!
6'10 guy

No . If haye stood up more you'd feel different. 6'10 is more likely.

I'm still not convinced that Valuev is as tall as 6'11".
The Exorcist said on 22/Oct/13
We know that Evander Holyfield is a legit 6'1" because of his photo with Rob. Now here are some photos of Valuev with Holyfield. I know that Valuev has a massive head, but I can't see a 10" difference between the the two. What do you think guys?

6'8.5" - 6'9" range perhaps?
Arch Stanton said on 25/Aug/13
@Derek, Haye isn't 6'3". 6'2" tops. Valuev can look 7 ft yeah, he's definitely not 7'2" anyway.
Derek said on 1/Aug/13
bad listing, really. david haye is 6'3 or anything really close to that, look at him standing next to valuev

Valuev is easily 7 feet, and even has a bad posture. could be as high as 7 feel 1/2
Arch Stanton said on 1/Dec/12
Well, he aint 7'2". But he certainly looked 7 ft next to 6'2" David Haye.

Shaun evander holyfield is 6"2.5

This is hilarious. David Haye 6 ft 3 and Valuev 6 ft 11. The height difference looks easily 10 inches. David Haye looks about 6'1" if Valuev is 6'11"-7'.

Rob are you sure he looks almost a foot taller than 6'1" Evander Holyfield?
[Editor Rob: I think he can look near 10 inches, he is definitely one guy who has a head that is a couple of inches longer than average.]

The barefoot picture with the curtain behind it looks like my living room and imagining the height of the door and the kitchen door at the side and him standing in it. I believe the patio doors beyond the curtain is about 6'10" to the top of the frame. If you hide his wife though he looks like your typical 6'3"-6'4" rugby player thug type! Build has a lot to do with him looking shorter.
mike said on 14/Jun/12
Give me a break the guys at least 7 feet. He doesn't even like being that big he says in an interview if he says hes 7 feet than he most Def if at least that tall
LAN Jiao said on 25/Oct/11
Maybe 210cm closer and 300pounds
LG69 said on 24/Sep/11
I have seen him listed numerous times at 7 feet even, and even 7'1". I think 6'11" is a little conservative.
moz said on 7/Jul/11
If Valuev tells you he's 7ft, he's 7ft. If he told me that 2 + 2 = 5 I'd smile and thank him for his time.
MARKO said on 4/Feb/11
nicolai is 7 ft.
russian magnate said on 19/Jan/11
i would like to see a picture of valuev standing next to semmy schilt that is 6ft 11.5 inches.. that would give a good view of his height. he has easy 4 inches on vitali, and vitali is a 6ft 7 so he is no way less than 6 '11 could be even 7 feet.

The person next to Nicolai Valuev is Michael Naseband a german actor. He is listed at 6ft2.75 (190cm).

shiko said on 2/Aug/07
211cm in the evening would be correctbu i think straight out ofbed he would be on the 7 foot mark, though i dont think the show is taller but could look like it because of his immens body
Cobra said on 5/Jul/07
Have heard Big Show wants to start boxing, I would like to see him against Valuev, I think Show would have half or a full inch against him
kirk said on 24/Jun/07
really now dayz when u are 6'10, u are considered a "FOOTER".
Produce said on 14/Jun/07
Nikolai Valuev was meassured as 211 CM by german TV in the evening! The difference between morning and evening and evening is about 2 CM. So Valuev is 211-213 CM , so you can say his height is 212 CM! He never looked 217 CM to me.
LongKenny said on 11/Mar/07
I thing he never show his real height. He always has his head down. And his head is gigantic, I think at least 25cm long. My guess is 2.11m-2.13m
Karemaker said on 7/Mar/07
I would say 6'11" is about right for Valuev. In the press conference pictures between him and Jameel McCline, who is a legit 6'6", he seemed about 5 inches taller. McCline came up to about Valuev's eye level, or maybe slightly lower. used to think his height was exaggerated a lot, and I thought he was about 6'9", but with shoes on Valuev must be just around that 7ft mark. Oh well when Klitschko fights him it won't really matter anymore, heheh.

Scroll a little. Valuev with Dmitry Tursunov, who is at ATP listed at 6 ft 1. I'm really confused, can't say how tall Valuev looks there.
CoolJ said on 19/Jan/07
He's about 6'11-6'11.25 As I stated earlier, he was measured at 2.11m on TV
Lucky Luciano said on 7/Dec/06
6'10.5". 7'0.5" in his regular street shoes (reinforced for his mass). I drove out to Chicago for the Valuev-Barrett fight and watched public workouts and weigh-in from 20 ft away. Big dude.
aussie bloke said on 7/Dec/06
Picture with 6ft1 tennis player Dimitry Tursonov showed that he is freakin tall, but not 11 inches taller, more like 8-9 inches taller. I reckon, barefoot, he would be about 6ft9 tall, possibly 6ft10 at the most.
Jim said on 14/Jul/06
Valuev is 6-11 w/o shoes. If you add 1 or 1-1/2 inches for shoes, this makes him a solid Seven footer.
UTASHI_PRIDE said on 21/Jun/06
His parents fed him lots of milk
mask said on 1/Feb/06
My guess is 208 cm barefoot 211 cm with shoes billed 7'0" cuase it sounds more intimidating.
Mikex said on 1/Jan/06
This guy is tall cause of a glandular/thyroid problem or something. His size isn't natural and he looks a bit odd.
CoolJ said on 21/Dec/05
I spoke to a boxing fan in the Netherlands who states that Valuev was measured at 2.11m on television.
Leo Is Tall! said on 19/Dec/05
He doesn't look as tall as 7'0" when he stared down on 6'3" Larry Donald.
Jason said on 18/Dec/05
Damn. If you read his bio he says his father is 5'6'' and his mother even shorter. He says he got his height from his grandfather who stood 6'7''.
Jason said on 18/Dec/05
I mean that he doesn't quite look 7'0'' in those pics so the other listings I think are more probable.
CoolJ said on 18/Dec/05
Jason: How exactly can you differentiate between those one or two centimeters? Is there anyone pictured with official heights somewhere?
Jason said on 18/Dec/05

Looking through all the pics at his official site, he does look more the 210 or 211cm.
Jason said on 18/Dec/05
I've read he's actually 210cm (6'10 1/2''). He used to be a basketball player in Russia ... maybe there's a listing from those days somewhere.
CoolJ said on 17/Dec/05
I tell you what.. I heard he was officially 6'11 1/2".. but.. he TOWERS over "6'2" John Ruiz...

[Editor Rob: it is quite possible he's a tad under...but getting billed as the 7ft 'King Kong' of boxing vs the '6ft 11 and a halfer' works better in the press! Here's the pic of him and the 188cm guy.

I've seen various listings and descriptions of this guy from 6ft 11 to 7ft 2.
