Nigel has hardly aged a day, so I doubt he's lost much height at all. He gets 5ft9.25 from me. πŸ’ͺπŸ₯ŠπŸ₯Š

How tall in his prime?
Editor Rob
I would be surprised if he lost anything noticeable

Rob I am a legit 176cm and my brother is a little bit taller (like around 1cm) than you and there is more difference between my brother and me than between you and Nigel . I highly doubt he is 176cm . he rather seems to be 174.5cm or something like that which is basically about the height of my brother. of course it could look like this because of the picture / angle but you both look very close heightwise so how can he be 176cm ? there is no way

what do you think ?
Editor Rob
5ft 9 flat is possible for ben, chris eubank probably is an inch or so taller.

Given that his head is completely shaved and he looks like he's slouching I'll give him 5'9" max.

is 175cm possible rob ? he somehow doesnt look that much taller than you and doesnt give off a 176cm vibe in general either
Editor Rob: it is quite possible, though at most 1 inch between eubank and benn I'd say...

Was probably about 1cm taller at his prime. So his "about 5'10" claim" was likely accurate in the past.

Always looked a shade shorter than Eubank, although always listed at 5'10" on the tale of the tape. Great fighter from the golden era of British middleweights.

Listed at 5"9.5 on boxrec very possible hes lost a quarter inch due to wear and tear from training all those years. Would you agree Rob?

I saw him box Nicky Piper back in the 90s. Piper looks a legit 6'3" guy, I've got his autograph. Nigel from what I remember looked average yeah 5'9"-5'10" range and stocky.
