Hey Rob how tall do you think Julio Cesar Chavez was in his prime ?
Editor Rob
He could look pretty similar to roberto duran around 5ft 7

Oscar looks about an inch taller than Sugar Ray Leonard... Click Here

I change my opinion to 175cm . MAYBE 176cm instead of 177cm

I think he is about 177cm . I analyzed pics of him with other people/boxers

Ive met oscer and stood right next to him hes at least 5 10 511 because im 511and half and we were pretty much the same height
Flyin said on 2/Apr/17
If mayweather is a strong 5'7 this is spot on. Boxing rec has 179cm believe it or not. You have to conclude this height when standing next to so many fighters in that division billed under his height but seem only slightly shorter.
Matt said on 27/Mar/17
Looks 5'11 always. The UFC needs more Mexican champions. It would've be great to see Carla Esparza,Joe Soto, and Anthony Pettis be the champs right now.
Hulk said on 26/Jan/17
This guy looks 5'10, anything lower is not accurate
Mick said on 15/Jan/17
Oscar was billed as a near 6 footer during the Olympics in 1992. Always thought he was at least 5-10. My sister has a picture of him from 1998. She's tiny at 5-0 and was wearing a 2 inch heel and De La Hoya was in a 1 inch dress shoe. He was a head taller then her so I would guess he's 5-9.5 and an inch taller at 5-10.5 in his dress shoes he had on. So this is a good estimate you have.
Rob, what about starting a Canelo page? He's billed as 5-9 but looked 5-6 when he boxed Mayweather who is 5-8.
Oanh said on 8/Dec/16
Yeah, the 5'11" claims are too high, but he's not less than 5'9"
I can buy 5'9.5"-5'10"
Johno said on 12/May/16
He wakes up at 5'9 and fades to 5'8.25 to in the evening, so he is around 5'8.5 most part of the day.
Liam said on 17/Apr/16
I met and stood right next to oscer he is a solid 5 feet 10 because im 511 and half and he was almost as tall as me
ArjunaKorale said on 12/Apr/16
Rob, please check out the YouTube vid entitled 'Sugar Ray Leonard, Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya & Shane Mosley come together for charity'. From this, you will notice that Oscar is only a cm or two shorter than the 5 ft 10 inch (178 cm) tall Mike Tyson...this is why (as well as from other sources) I believe that Oscar is taller than a 'flat' 5 ft 9 (175 cm)...I think you should consider upgrading him slightly to 176 cm (5 ft 9.25 inches) tall...but if u do not want to do this, fair enough (I'm certainly NOT one of the idiots on your site that believe that Oscar is as much 5 ft 10.5 inches tall!). BETTER STILL, PLEASE TRY TO GET A PIC OF YOU & OSCAR TOGETHER & THEN YOU WILL SEE FOR YOURSELF OSCAR'S TRUE HEIGHT.

5'9" Mario Lopez (who even appears to have a footwear disadvantage) appears to actually be even slightly taller than Oscar (look at shoulders and take into account Mario's head-lean):

There is no way he's over his currently listed height.
.. said on 3/Nov/15
Rob, you should check out david Lemieux. He's 177 cm according to some sites, but he's listed 175 cm on Golden Boy Promotions website. Sometimes he can look even shorter next to other boxers or next to De La Hoya.
DL said on 25/Jun/15
He can't just be 5"9, i would say a solid 5"10 or maybe 5"10 1/2. i myself is 5"6 1/2 (though i dub myself 5"7 most of the times) and i stood next to him before.
Enzo said on 15/Jun/15
De La Hoya has never been listed this short.
Red said on 12/May/15
Watching de la hoya vs pacqio. He appears more 5'9.5" than 5'9"
ferang74 said on 2/Feb/15
I have seen de la hoya up close, he is only about 5-9. I know sugar shane he is a really cool guy and he is about 5-8. I heard paquiao is only 5-5.
ArjunaKorale said on 7/Dec/14
All I can say is that, if De La Hoya is around 176 cm tall, then arch rival Felix Trinidad must be around 179 cm (5ft 10.5 inches). Rob, can you please do an entry on either Trinidad (the greatest Puerto Rican fighter of all time) or Bernard Hopkins (the oldest world champ of all time!). To do an entry on Hopkins (who I think is around 183/184 cm tall) would be better, I think, as he completely outclassed Trinidad when they actually fought.
Andrew M said on 30/Nov/14
I imagine he's not so famous here in the UK, which is a pity, as he's a very accomplished fighter, having successfully competed in several different weight-categories. If it weren't for American fitness magazines being sold here, I wouldn't know of him.
Ace said on 4/Sep/14
I always assumed de la Hoya was 5'10. He wasn't more than an inch shorter than 5'11 Trinidad, unless Trinidad was over-billed.

if pacquaio is 5-5 during the day, hatton might be even 5-4.5

his height is listed every time when he fights at 5' 10 there is no mistery

Lot of talk on Bradley's height I just met him last week in Indio he's at the very least 5'5".
Inches said on 9/Apr/14
My brother who is 5-4.75 in the afternoon ran into Pacquiao and his family at Santa Monica beach. Pacman had my brother by about an 1.5 inches in their photo together. He was in trainers while my brother wore slippers. Angle and posture was slightly in Pacquiao's favor. Also sand beach can be tricky as it is not very level. Having said all that I think he is a little taller than 5-5. I'd pin him around 5-5.5 maybe 5-5.25 and no shorter, no taller

i was shocked when i saw oscar de la hoya in flat shoes (1 cm thick) he might be a scarse 5'8" wich it make him bared foot 5'7" and half. how can they lie badly like that he is rated at 5'11"

NO WAY is De la Hoya a full 2 inches above Maywaether.

boxers get measured before fights so look at tale of the tape
Ace said on 14/Sep/13
Adrien Broner at 5'5 would make Daniel Ponce de Leon about 5'3. That sounds like a stretch. Supposedly Broner was measured at 5'6.5, although who knows how accurate those are. Personally, I can't see Oscar much lower than 5'9.5.
ArjunaKorale said on 18/Jul/13
@ Juicey: I agree with you - I think Oscar is slightly taller than 5 ft 9! I think 5 ft 9.5 (176/177 cm) is more closer to the mark. But this is the max I believe De La Hoya is! In other words Oscar was never the widely publicised 5 ft 10.5 inches during anytime in his life!
Emil said on 6/Jul/13

@Rob
The guy to Oscar's left is welterweight champ Adrien Broner who is listed as 5'7.
I cant see more than 5'5 for Broner
[Editor Rob: not seen much of him really to guess]

Seems that de la hoya is taller than pacquaio 3,5 inches,considered that manny wears shoes.
Totti10 said on 24/Jan/13
For me:
Cotto: 5'6.5"
Mayweather: 5'7"
Pacquaio: 5'5"
De la hoya: 5'9"
Bradley: 5'4"
Juan Manuel Marquez: 5'4.5"
Ortiz: 5'8"
Hatton: 5'6"
Men who weigh less than 150 pounds may not be as tall as they say...
Josef K said on 22/Nov/12
Yes but you should take in consideration that sometimes in a lot of weigh ins they stand face to face one with sneakers and the other one without, like in Pacquiao Cotto or Pacquiao de la Hoya. Mayweather also did not look more than an inch shorter than Shane Mosley at weigh in and I think both were without sneakers.Also looked a little bit taller than cotto in all the promo photos, except the weigh in in which Cotto was wearing sneakers and mayweather wasn't.
Josef K said on 21/Nov/12
Rob, is there any possibility that mayweather could be above 5'7"?
[Editor Rob: doubt it, look at him with Ricky Hatton...Hatton has said more than once he's 5ft 6 himself, he looks taller than ricky...how much? 1 inch or more?`]
Totti10 said on 3/Nov/12
I agree, De La Hoya is 5'9".
Therefore Mayweather is 5'6.5 and Pacquaio is 5'5".
Lillo Thomas said on 3/Nov/12
I saw him in person once . 5-9 sounds about right . He don't look short at all .
Totti10 said on 3/Nov/12
mayweather is then 5'6/5'7 range..probably 5'6.5
What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: yeah mayweather could be 5ft 6.5-7 range]
Totti10 said on 1/Nov/12
Rob, in your opinion what is the height of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao?
[Editor Rob: not the height they claim to be, manny probably 5ft 5 range ]

Oscar is 5'8.5/5.9
LG69 said on 17/Sep/12
I remember reading a newspaper article on him back in the '90's and it said he was 5'11". Even then, i thought "No way is he 5'11"...not barefooted anyway. At best, i see 5'10" with his shoes...probably 5'9" barefooted.
ArjunaKorale said on 15/Aug/12
@Martin Fogg: Yeah, I agree with you, man. I also believe Floyd Mayweather Jnr is around 5ft 7.5 (171cm) - He certainly doesn't look 173cm.
Martin Fogg said on 14/Aug/12
fools! Floyd Mayweather was listed 5' 7 1/2" in his first boxing match in 1996. He faced Roberto Apodaco
ArjunaKorale said on 17/Jan/12
Oscar is NOT 5 foot 8 in the same way that he is NOT 5 foot 10.5 inches tall! The simple truth is that he is somewhere in the middle - I would strongly sugguest either 176cm or 177cm (i.e. around 5 foot 9.5 inches). I for one seriously doubt the 5 ft 11 or 5 ft 10.5 listing - this is just media hype coz some boxers just want to get a psychological advantage over their opponents by making themselves seem taller! Remember, in boxing height & reach can provide somewhat of an advantage, although personally my favourite boxers were always the shorter highly skilled guys (e.g. Roberto Duran)!
josef_alonso said on 11/Nov/11
Oscar De La Hoya's height is 5'8 in real
Manny Pacquiao-5'4½ max-5'5½
Juan Manuel Márquez he's shorter than pacman in½
true height of Shane Mosley is 5'7
also Floyd Mayweather is 5'5
Vegas said on 4/Oct/11
russell if mayweather is 5'4 then there are alot of extremely short guys boxing at welterweight, that would put ricky hatton at ~5'2 (Pacquiao was roughly same height as hatton and mayweather was noticeably taller than hatton), shane mosley at 5'4-5'5, Juan Manuel Márquez at 5'3 and de la hoya would be 5'5 range

web listings at the best of times need to be taken with a pinch of salt, glenn loovens listed 5'8 Click Here and thats 5'8.25 barefoot measured rob next to loovens on the right with the blond hair, i guess loovens is wearing 5-6 inch lifts :D Click Here
johno said on 3/Oct/11
Mayweather 5'5.5
Russell Ash said on 27/Sep/11
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. was actually listed at 5'4" (162 cm) for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He was 19 during the games, so I doubt he's grown taller since then. He competed at featherweight in Atlanta, which is 126 lbs (57 kg), very low for a man of 5'8". Source: Click Here

One thing that makes 5'8" seem plausible for Floyd is that his wingspan is apparently 72″ (183 cm).
Russell Ash said on 27/Sep/11
De La Hoya has been getting listed at 5'11" (180 cm) since the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. His wingspan is 73″ (185 cm) according to some sources, which makes 5'11" seem somewhat believable.

When he was 21, Oscar weighed in at only 130 lbs for his fight against Giorgio Campanella. Looking at photographs of the fight and watching it on youtube, it's hard to believe a man with his height and reach only weighs 130 lbs.
johno said on 21/Sep/11
Oscar de la Hoya 5'7.5 - 5'8 max
Truth said on 15/Sep/11
I have followed and participated in boxing for the past 20 years. In boxing, it is the normal to add 1-2 inches, or more on your height. Georeg Foreman was never 6'4" ....maybe more like 6'2" and de la hoya was never 5'10" ...maybe 5'8" at best. I have met both fighters several times and was not surprised that they did not match the listed height/hype.
Poul said on 18/Aug/11
@Rob Floyd Mayweather was listed to be 168 cm in Atlanta 96'. He was 19 at the time. Do you believe that he has grown since then? I doubt it though.
[Editor Rob: a little chance yes ]

the carl said on 13/May/11
this is a good opportunity to mention a few words about boxers height. in boxing, weight is critical. height is somewhat arbitrary. common to see guys have height rounded up to the nearest inch. de la hoya is an honest 5-9, maybe a shade over. so for him to be listed at 5-10 in some fights is not unusual.
Rex1983 said on 15/Apr/11
If Oscar De La Hoya is 5'9", then Floyd Mayweather must be 5'7".

Dominic said on 10/Feb/11
Hey guys, I just found some old fight footage of Hopkins and Oscar from 2004 and Im beginning to believe that 5'9 for Oscar is right on the money. Right at the start of the match they face eachother and Hopkins eyes are in line with the top of Oscar's head. That would mean around a 4 inch gap between them. Which puts Delahoya at 5'9. What's funny is, the tale of the tape prefight, listed Hopkins at 6'1 which we can assume is true. (He looks 1 inch taller than Calzaghe in their weigh-in photos, who Rob lists at 6'0). Yet amazingly Delahoya is listed at 5'10.5 in prefight stats. I think his height was just overestimated his entire career...

Vaj, I was being sarcastic. Yeah Oscar's 5'8".
Ed said on 11/Jan/11
I met Oscar along with a good friend. My friend is probably 5'11".5 (though he claims 6ft). I myself am 6'3" (the short one in my family haha). Anyways, my friend had an easy 2.5-3 inches on Oscar. Oscar is certainly not 5'9" plus.
vaj said on 10/Jan/11
Burby,
I have already posted a pic of my self measured at 5'9" barefooted and 5'10.25 with shoes.That day I spent a lot of time around Oscar and he is 5'9 in shoes for sure!

Vaj if he is 5'9 in shoes. Shouldn't his height be lower. I always assumed this site posted barefoot height?

It's funny how people like to guess peoples heights they never meet in person. I met Oscar in person and he is 5'9" in shoes period.

I think he needs an upgrade. Look at him next to 6'0 Randy Couture. Oscar is about eye level with him.

Either Oscar needs an upgrade or Randy needs a downgrade.
xtreme said on 30/Jun/09
and i personally think oscar is about 178-179 cm.. since bernard hopkins is about 184cm , oscar doesnt seem like he's 4.5 inches shorter than hopkins(if oscar is only 5 8 as vaj thinks?) actually oscar doesnt even look 3.5 inches shorter than bernard hopkins(if oscar is only 5 9) so i think oscar's height is about 5 10 if not full 179, he looks about about 2.5 inches shorter than bhops imo
xtreme said on 30/Jun/09
What do ppls here think of paul william's height? and editor paul any chance of having a page on paul williams boxer?(do a google if u dont know who he is). alot of ppls say that he's taller than his offical listed height of 6 1 and half because he looks really lanky and tall( i personally think hes closer in height to chad dawson who i think is a legit 6 3 guy) so imo paul williams is atleast a 190 cm guy because he looked about 5 inches taller than 5 10 listed winky?

and what about david haye, shouldnt he also have his own page editor paul?

Yes, Oscar is almost 5'10.5, look at him when he fought pacquiao, there is no way there was only a 2.5 inch height difference when they were in the ring. Click Here manny at 5'6.5, oscar clearly has at least 3.5 inches on pacquiao

oscar is a little over 5'10, i have seen him measured on fight night for the tale of the tape in barefeet, and he is just under 5'10.5.

Maybe 5'9" flat is more accurate.

The more I read the more I understand Rob for leaving Glenn out. What a stubborn guy he was. And I supported him because I thought Brad and others who questioned Glenn's self reported 5'8'' height were attacking him. After all, they all were right, even though they treated him disrespectufully some times, I guess.

stranger007 said on 8/May/09
I met Oscar at the Pacquiao fight at mid day around 2 or 3pm, I'm 5'7" and we were the same height! Vaj is right and Glenn is just insecure of his height, i think glenn is only 5'6 1/2!
glenn said on 24/Apr/09
vaj-you'll always find an excuse to be right.please.you dont impress me.make your $.thats all your good for.id rather be in your shoes.dont be in my 5-8 frame.i dont care what you say about morning height buddy,cause my friend is in the medical field and he agrees on 5-8 for me.and he measured me.so everyone will have there opinion.so your most likely 5-9.5 when you wake.and didnt you notice people ragged on you oscar pic too and didnt agree with your estimates on him and mario? its obvious mario looks 5-9 to 5-10 next to some people.so does oscar.not to you.yet,your the expert here.like woody harrelson.sure.he's 5-9.sure.i just proved that even if in 5-7,he is 5-10 in my pic.he had sandals on,yet you never answer to that.i have witnesses.woody is most likely 5-11,as he looks,next to owen wilson or others.5-10 if im wrong.your off 2 inches on everyone.most people on the site agree,im right,or off by an inch.at least i was right that im 5-8 at some point.like i always claimed.i never,never said 5-8 at night.i even said i measured below 5-7 once.but,you like to be right all the time.
vaj said on 22/Apr/09
Glenn,
You are right I do not know how to guess height but the funny thing is I guessed your height dead on July 30th post before Rob measured you.
Gus said it best so I have to quote him:
Gus says on 20/Apr/09
Glenn, all I'm trying to help correct is the DISCREPANCY between you using your "morning height" while we using the regular "day heights" of everyone else. When an actor/celebrity offers his height, truthfully, it will always in most cases be his DAY HEIGHT, not what this website calls "morning height". General physicians and sports registrars do not record waking height!

NOBODY, except those with such interest in their height as expressed here, knows their exact "morning height". Look at Rob, he at least knows this to be true, and does not use his "morning height" because it is IRRELEVANT in the real world. Especially if you use yourself (Glenn) to COMPARE height with actors and celebrities....

This is ridiculous Glenn. You should be downgraded to 5'7, which is your day height.
You are too funny get over your morning height it does not last long! I told you I measured myself at mid day and my doctor also measured me 2:00pm both times 5'9" barefooted. I feel avarage height in public many think I am 5'10.5-5'11" in shoes so I do not have a complex of my height so I know morning height does not last so I do not depend on it so if you want to know your real height it is mid day and not just waking up.
glenn said on 20/Apr/09
vaj-you dont even know what morning height is,yet you know my height.you still havnt explained what time you were measured.it doesnt matter cause whatever you are,your probably more accurate cause you measured mid day.you also go against robs beliefs too.as this site made me aware of morning height.i judge celebs,not from my height,by the way.i judge from simply guessing.and guess what? i will always judge better than you and i know how tall i am-5-8 straight out of bed.5-7.25 to 5-7.5 in most pics.5-6.75 to 5-7 between 6pm and 3am depending on what time i woke up at.(i slept all day in the pics,lately i wake in the morning for more work)i knew my night measurements would be fodder for your fantasies.typical,expected response from you.if you were aware that everyone shrinks,some more and faster than others,i would respect your opinions of me being 5-7 more.rob is near 5-9 when he wakes.jenny sometimes 5-9.25.and they photographed with me at 5-7.that why the difference.first night,a dreadful 5-6.75.second night,up longer hours,i was 5-7.25.read at least 6 people backing me they lost more than an inch under similar stress,and one person claiming they lost 2 inches.alot i never knew about myself,like you,until i came to this site.i also didnt know i can shrink that much.thats why my insistance on 5-8,and i apoligize to you sincerely on that,but you are still wrong on everything.i will never back down.your oscar pic was atrocious on all counts.especially for height comparison.the only thing you have which is more accurate is your height measurment.but if you knew your out of bed height,maybe,just maybe,you would see oscar at a different height.or you just cant tell height.which i truly believe more.i buy nothing less than oscar at 5-9 morning,with 5-8 at his lowest,maybe he didnt sleep when you saw him,or your 5-10 in the morning.all my boxing expert friends that actually go to matches and hang out with the boxers all laugh at your claims.they all insist at oscar 5-10.and i also believe that possible.i admitted oscar looked 5-9,5-9.25 when i saw him.but this was 1am.i was possibly 5-7.make that cheddar($)id rather be you in most ways.dont be me-the incredible shrinking height expert.
RisingForce said on 20/Apr/09
Daniel, in vaj's picture Oscar's posture is poor and pavement is always a factor. So no that doesn't prove Oscar is 5-8. Oscar is atleast 5-9.

daniel52-your a mistaken man.and be grateful,as you will never get quality pics as good as mine for free.your delusional actually.there are people that have better pics than me out there that never stand straight,and would charge rob loads money.oscar is between 5-9 and 5-10.your all delusional and the 5-8 matches what you want.thats all.and even if vaj took pics he wouldnt have time cause he has a career,and either way,wouldnt match my skills.id rather have a career actually.at least i have a life unlike you.
Daniel52 said on 18/Apr/09
Oscar is no taller than 5-8 as Vaj showed.

I wish we had Vaj taking pictures with all the celebs.
TELLEM said on 18/Apr/09
5'8 for oscar
RisingForce said on 17/Apr/09
I'm fine with 5'9" for Oscar, but I can't see him any shorter. Glenn knows how tall he is vaj. He's 5'7.75"/5'8" in the morning.
vaj said on 17/Apr/09
You are wrong glenn,
I met Oscar at 10:00am and he was not 5'10" in the morning he was 5'9.25" in loafer shoes I was around him for two hours examing every angle and myself next to him and he was not taller than me!
He may look taller to you because you are 5'7" who thinks he is 5'8" and you estimate celebs taller than they really are.
Leung said on 16/Apr/09
I can
glenn said on 16/Apr/09
brad-you will twist whatever you want to your liking.as alot here are doing.we will never agree.while i think oscar at 5-8 after being up for 12 hours is possible,did i forget to tell you im 5-7 only after those 12 hours as well? at that im not 5-7 flat in the morning.im around 5-8 brad.morning.oscar might be 5-9 or 5-10 morning.its not that big a deal.what's his official height? 5-10,5-11?
RisingForce said on 16/Apr/09
Oscar is 5'9" or 5'9.5" as Rob has him listed.
TELLEM said on 16/Apr/09
de la hoya is 5'8-5'8.5
Brad said on 15/Apr/09
Go to the January 30, 2008 post by Glenn. I guess us asses are correct and 5' 10" is Oscar. 2/17/08 he denies being 5' 7" there saying he's 5' 8". Vaj's July 30th post was dead on correct. Go to my 9/14 post. Nobody believed me. 5' 6.5" night height, off by a sliver. Fits Oscar at 5' 8".
mId said on 7/Mar/09
I can't say precise but I think vaj is close.. because oscar was very short next to fedor at the latest affliction show.. fedor's listed at six but it is well known that he isn't. people usually say 5'10 - 5-11 for fedor.. and oscar was in shoes beside a barefoot fedor who just faught and he looked tiny next to him.. like 2 inches shorter. he isn't over 5'9 by my estimate.
Anonymous said on 3/Feb/09
measured at 5'10.5 inches when he fought pacquiao...with shoes possible...but barefoot no way....hes looked emaciated in that fight..
Danny said on 17/Jan/09
seems accurate.
glenn said on 28/Dec/08
i dont doubt anything vaj says.i believe him.honest.doesnt mean i think he is right.vaj is the height he claims he is.thats for sure.
Brad said on 28/Dec/08
Hey Vaj, they doubt you with measurement proof. Mario at 5' 10" is incredible. File under Willis. Oscar is 5' 8".
glenn said on 27/Dec/08
at least 5-9 on both mario and oscar.
RisingForce said on 27/Dec/08
I can agree with that leonari. Mario usually looks 5-9 except with Emmitt Smith but everyone looks shorter than they really are once in a while.
RisingForce said on 27/Dec/08
I think 5-9.5 is safe for Oscar then Glenn.

I'm not sure about Mario, I'd have to see more pictures of him or see his picture with you.
leonari said on 26/Dec/08
I agree with Glenn: Oscar as well as Mario are strong 5'9" guys. 5'10"? Not to me but it's possible.
glenn said on 25/Dec/08
mario lopez is 5-9ish,5-10.i have the photo with him.and witnesses to back my claim.pics are pics.they decieve.and the eyes play tricks in the flesh.even to me.but not when im sure on something.lopez is 5-9.25 at bare min if im wrong.5-10 max.im willing to bet money on if i had.and as i said on another post,im not a gambler and i hate taking risks.oscar is 5-9.25 to 5-10.5.somewhere in there.seemed barely over 5-9.25 to me.
Brad said on 25/Dec/08
Mario is a flat five eight. Just judge from that.
RisingForce said on 24/Dec/08
Oscar looks taller than Mario there. I think Oscar is 5-9, 5-9 1/2. I'm not sure about Mario. Maybe 5-8 1/2.
vaj said on 24/Dec/08
If 5-9 Emmit was taller than Mario Lopez, that backs up my claim that Mario is 5'8" barefooted and Oscar is the same height:
Click Here
That is why when I met them both myself I was surprised because I always thought Oscar was 5'10.5" and Mario 5'10" and they were barely 5'9.25" in shoes.
vaj said on 16/Dec/08
Exactly Viper, that backs up my claim.
Viper said on 15/Dec/08
Yep, 5-9 Emmit was always taller than Mario.
RisingForce said on 12/Dec/08
One thing about Mario that does make me question 5-9, 5-10 is that I'm a big NFL fan and I always knew Emmitt Smith was 5-9 max but somehow I think I remembered him being taller than Mario.
vaj said on 12/Dec/08
I also met Mario Lopez and he was also 1" shorter than I am 5'10.25" in shoes and he was 5'9.25" in low cut addias making him 5'8" barefooted like Oscar.
glenn said on 12/Dec/08
i think randy is 5-8.dont remember.i have mario and randy photos with.
Viper said on 11/Dec/08
There is video on ESPN showing Mario jogging with Oscar. They look around the same height.
trueheight said on 11/Dec/08
Sorry Leung but I believe the boxing commission over Glenn's photo since photos are so variable due to pavement, posture and posititioning relative to the camera (no dig on Glenn).

There is no way that ODHL is a hair under 5'9 and Manny is 5'6 minimum though he has been measured at 5'6.5

Brad said on 11/Dec/08
Eva in 4" heels is 5' 4". Mario at 5' 10" is laughing gas. Look at Mario with Oscar: 5' 8" beaten up boxer. Eva is a stone fox, James Brown lyric. Rob has 1.5" to go.
RisingForce said on 10/Dec/08
Viper says on 10/Dec/08
Vaj had pictures of him looking 5-8 next to his 5-9 measured height no less.

Oscar looks short there but he was leaning a lot. Who knows tall he'd be if he straightened up, could be 5-9ish even there. Plus there's the pavement factor when you're outside.

Rob's listing is very good, maybe Oscar is 5'9" flat but I wouldn't go below that.
Viper said on 10/Dec/08

I see you downgraded Oscar Rob. What was the particular reason?

By the way I agree 100% with this listing.

[Editor Rob: I looked at more stuff and 5ft 10 I wouldn't think he is legit 5ft 10. I can see how people estimate him 5ft 8.5-9.]
RisingForce said on 10/Dec/08
I'd say Oscar is 5'9" or a little over.
Brad said on 10/Dec/08
5' 10" is the listed fake height for Oscar. Nobody in boxing believes it. He's 5' 8".
glenn said on 10/Dec/08
amen to that er.that applies to me too.people always start with me first though.i make it a habit to making into a war is my mistake.im learning slowly.doing good overall.lot of room for improvement.

I just don't see the point of attacking each other, and that goes either way. One can fine discuss Justin Timberlake's height (just an example) without getting personal. No offense to anyone, but if someone starts a personal attacks, there's no need to hang on, that's just adds fuels to their fire and keeps us away from discussing what this site is about, what is should be about and what Rob probably meant it to be about - celebrity height. It's just one of the downsides of having a forum without user registration I guess, although I fully understands Robs of philosophy of not having it. Just a thought.
Brad said on 10/Dec/08
A columnist for the Las Vegas Review Journal was laughing at De La Hoya's height....he said he isn't 5' 10" at all. He is correct, he's 5' 8" as Vaj has pointed out. Mario Lopez at 5' 10" is a comedy show. Oscar at 5' 10" means Vaj is 5' 11". Maybe Vaj has on some chunky boots.

RisingForce said on 9/Dec/08
Viper your estimates are plain wrong

You pick the lowest mentioned height and try to use some ridiculous angle pictures to back it up.

Examples are Clooney at 5-9, Sly at 5-7, Will Smith at 5-11, Vin Diesel at under 5-10.

Hell the lowest Will Smith was mentioned in published reports was 6-0 and Vin Diesel outside of this site at 5-11(often 5-10 on this site too). Even those weren't low enough for you.

Here is Sly and Oscar
Click Here

Without that stupid spiked hair Oscar is atleast 3" shorter. Sly has a max 1.5" footwear advantage over him(Rob proved that in Sly's biggest shoes he can get about as much as 1.5" over normal shoes based on ankle position).

So factoring in footwear Oscar is a minimum 1.5" shorter than Sly and that's assuming Sly has his biggest lifts and Oscra doesn't have any.

So if Sly is 5'7" then what is Oscar, 5'5.5"?

No, in reality Oscar is about 5'9" and Sly is near 5'11".

its funny how viper forgot to mention how many times he was laughed at.sure,people doubt and get angry with me alot.well,more so in the past.but alot here respect my gaugings.viper is young mistaken man who thinks he is tough in front of a computer.photos? hahahahah.still from dvds and internet are not a pimple to how powerful my candids are.i have nothing to be afraid of my dear friend,cause it was my idea for rob to measure me in april.

[Editor Rob: everybody has estimates others think are plain wrong. I don't mind, I think there's photos of everyone where they could look smaller than they are. Viper is usually more passive, I think if he goes back to those ways then there's no problems. Everybody can estimate, nobody can say a height is 100% because none of us ever measured a celebrity.]

Leung, Manny isn't 5'5 - that's ridiculous since it would make Ricky Hatton 5'4.5 as Manny was a bit taller than Hatton at the weigh-in.
trueheight said on 9/Dec/08
Manny wore shoes during their staredown at the weigh in - if you watched the fight, Jim Lampley alluded to this.

There is a 4in difference b/t the men. I think Manny is 5'6, making Oscar 5'10. But he looks the same height as 5'9 Mario Lopez so i'm a bit confused.
Viper said on 8/Dec/08
There is a strong case against Oscar being 5�10�.
"Compared to 5�5� Manny �Pacman� he genuinely looked 5�8.5�.
Anything over 5�9� is looking unlikely for Oscar."

Its amazing to me that Glenn meets some of these people in person and hes still way off. He need glasses bad.
Viper said on 8/Dec/08
Yes, Glenn, the people who are actually intelligent on this site revere my estimates. Only the blind and stupid would think they are crazy and laugh at them. I guess you fall in line with that stupidity as well. I actually have good pictures to back up my claims. I would assume you are not in that camp as well considering you are off on just about everyone lately. Your pictures dont mean jack right now when we are not sure what your real height is. And no, we sure as hell would not be arguing as much If we actually knew your measured height. Yes, Vaj has proven his height. He has a hell of a lot more cred than you do right now. You have been laughed and teased on this site for 3 years now for not measuring your own height. What are you scared of? Isnt that the point of this site? This isnt an "autographers picture collection with celebs" site. Its a damn celebrity height site. I guess youve totally missed the point of the whole thing.

And Glenn, get your eyes checked son. You have to be the worst judge of height seeing Will Smith at a ridiculous 6-3 and Bruce Willis at 6-1 in person, LOL
Antonio said on 8/Dec/08
The "Tail Of The Tape", Oscar's height was stated at 5-10.5" and Manny at 5-6.5. At the weigh-in, I saw Oscar with a 2.5" height advantage. In some photos it only looked like 2". If Manny he a legit 5-6.5" then Oscar is 5-8.5 - 5-9" at most. Of course if Manny is only 5-5" as some state, then Oscar can be no taller than 5-7". Personally, I think Manny's height at 5-6.5" is probably accurate, placing Oscar at 5-9" max.

How ever tall he is, it's time to hang it up!

thank you lazybum.you take the words out of my mouth.

Drivers license isn't a good indicator. Who updates their stats from age 16? My height on my licensee is what I was at age 16. I've grown 5.5 inches after that.

"On Woody Harldson's height he also claims 5'9" himself yet are you going to insult him as well? Are you going to tell him he is wrong and should change his drivers license"
Jay said on 6/Dec/08
He looks closer to 5'9".

Viper said on 5/Dec/08
Only looks like a 3 inch difference with Manny there. Also it was only 2 inches with there staredown. I think Oscar is around 5-8.

Here's the kicker Glenn. Vaj has proven his measured height of 5-9. You havnt. He also has pictures of himself looking taller than Oscar. Right now I think hes more credible than you.
kal said on 2/Dec/08

with manny pacquia listed as 5'5
RisingForce said on 2/Dec/08
vaj, do you realize that heights on driver's licenses often aren't updated?

Woody could have easily wrote that height down at 16 years old and many men grow after 16. Woody could also have never known his height or cared about his height. If he claimed 5'9" in a recent interview then that would be different but he hasn't so Glenn is probably right. On Cheers Woody always seemed like a 5-11, 6-0 guy.

As for Oscar well assuming he was in dress shoes and Sly was in 3" elevator shoes I'd say 5'9.5" is accurate for Oscar Glenn. Sly was 3" taller but could have had about a 2" footwear advantage.

Standing straight Oscar would have atleast 3" on Manny Pacquiao as well.
glenn said on 30/Nov/08
i know he says 5-9.the whole world knows that.he doesnt know or care about his height.i thought you said he looked 5-9 to you.if im wrong i apoligize.i thought you met him.

funny how you always ignore my woody proof.another you were wrong about was owen wilson.most people agree he is 5-11 here.if there was a way i could bet money on it and had the money,i would bet you an outrageous amount that oscar is at least 5-9.5,woody at least 5-10 and owen at least 5-10.in fact,i bet my life.

In Parade Magazine a few years ago, they mentioned Oscar as being tall, 5-10.5, which I thought was funny.
RisingForce said on 16/Oct/08
Oscar seems about 5-9ish
Click Here

There's Oscar and 5'10.75" Stallone, Stallone may have 1.5" advantage over Oscar's probable 1.25" dress shoes but he's 3 inches taller so if you take that away Oscar is just 5'9.25".

Oscar at best is just over 5'9", 5'10" is doubtful. If Oscar is 5'10" then Stallone must have had a 2.25" footwear advantage over Oscar's probable 1.25" dress shoes. That seems unlikely to me.
vaj said on 29/Sep/08
I met both Oscar and Mario Lopez and both are 1" shorter than me making them 5'9.25" in shoes. I examed their shoes and Oscar had slip-on shoes and no room for lifts and mario had on white low cut addias.
Brad said on 14/Sep/08
Oscar had Glenn by 1 1/2" and a nightime Glenn is 5' 6.5". Both wear big ones because they want more height.
trueheight said on 13/Sep/08
RF: Oscar is 5'9 at the very least.

Vaj: the reason I say that your pictures are not the best to judge height is b/c it's obvious that something is making ODHL look 5'7ish - pavement, posture, shoes. No disrespect. That's what your picture implies, that ODHL is 5'7, maybe even 5'6.5 since he looks about 2.5in shorter than you.

I think ODHL is 5'9 - and I think Mario Lopez is around 5'8.

Look at this:

MP is listed at 5'6 but I believe he's more like 5'5. Still ODHL has almost 5in on Manny.
vaj said on 9/Sep/08
RisingForce says on 8/Sep/08
vaj could have measured 5'9" at the doctors office but there it's clear that without hair he wouldn't reach 5'9" in that picture.

You are wrong RisingForce, the line drawn is the top of my head is exactly 5'9" I did not add 1/2" hair above. Regardless if I am 5'9"-5'8.5" Oscar is still shorter than me as I proven. Even if Oscar is leaning I am also leaning as well and if he stood up straight and I as well I would still be taller.
RisingForce said on 8/Sep/08
What's really funny is how Viper always looks around for the lowest estimate and trys to make it fit yet doesn't see that it's hair that takes him to 5'9". It's also funny how he criticizes me thinking Sly is atleast 5'10" when just 2-3 months ago he estmated Sly at 5'10.25"!

vaj could have measured 5'9" at the doctors office but there it's clear that without hair he wouldn't reach 5'9" in that picture.
Viper said on 8/Sep/08
This is rich. Rising thinks Vaj is shorter than his measured height he has shown on here which looks 5-9 without a doubt, Yet thinks Sly is 5-10.
RisingForce said on 7/Sep/08
vaj you need to see their footwear, I believe you that Oscar is about 5'8" but a Banderas picture proves nothing because he's a known lift wearer.
RisingForce said on 7/Sep/08
The top of your hair gets you over 5'9" but you need hair to reach 5'9". Where your head ends would seem more like 5'8.5" or 5'8.75" max unless the shot is off slightly. Your eye level is just at about 5'4" as well suggesting your 5'8.5" max not including extra hair.

?surely when vaj stands in a pic barefoot, directly next to a tape-measure then he looks exactly 5'9" because that is exactly how tall the tape measure says he is.
how can you say "possibly more like 5'8""?
doesn't the excellent pic and proof from vaj warrant rob changing the listed height here?

Rob why even with Vaj's evidence do you keep Oscar at 5'10''? No one else has provided evidence quite like Vaj, showing his barefoot height, his heigth in shoes and then pictures next to a celebrity. He clearly reveals that De La Hoya is 5'8/5'8.5.
Clay said on 28/Aug/08
I said all along that if Vaj was telling the truth Mayweather is 5'7''.

vaj said on 1/Aug/08
I also met Mario Lopez and he gets listed as a 5'10"er but he is the same height as Oscar:

Here is Mario same height as Randy Jackson who is 5'8":

Mario interviewing Mark Wahlberg who is 5'8" looks similar in height:

right on runt and vaj!
vaj said on 30/Jul/08
runt,
That is funny,
most guys who are 5'9" and with my built can look 5'10-5 11" in shoes but the reality is that I am 5'9" barefooted.
Oscar is 5'9.25" in shoes which would make him 5'8" barefooted. I am 5'9" barefooted and 5'10.25" in shoes. Glenn was 1 1/2" shorter than Oscar which would put Glenn in the 5 6.5"-5'7" range.
runt said on 30/Jul/08
There are three possibilities:
1) Vaj is really 5-11 or something and he's using a rigged height scale to make Glenn look short =)
2) He's telling the truth
3) Vaj is really shorter than 5-9 and is using a rigged height scale and Glenn is really even shorter than Vaj is saying =)
Brad said on 29/Jul/08
Oscar was 1 1/2" taller than Glenn. A true 5' 8". I wouldn't doubt 5' 6.5 for Floyd.
robbie said on 20/Jul/08
damn Vaj just owned glenn lol
Brad said on 6/Jul/08
Glenn said he was 5' 10", that makes Vaj about 5' 11". This was solid evidence Glenn's height was suspect. Glenn couldn't hung a tape measure and gone for it. He coulda beena contendah.
Viper said on 3/Jul/08
Yeah, Mayweather looks 5-7 tops at the absolute most.
vaj said on 1/Jul/08
I am an Oscar fan so trust me before I met him I thought he would be 5'10-5'11" as listed and to my surprise he was 1" shorter than me and very thin. I was around him for about 2 hours in the VIP section and saw him in many angles. I was also surprised how short May weather was since he claims to be 5'8", I would put him in 5'6-5'7" range and very nice guy. When I saw Glenn's picture next to Oscar, Glenn looked small like May weather I bet Glenn is in 5'7" rang. Glenn liked posting his picture with Celebes but when questioned about Glenn's height he would start get upset and insult people. Seeing Glenn next Oscar proved to me Glenn is shorter than he is admitting; now it makes sense why he never took a picture measuring him to prove he was 5'8".
Lmeister said on 1/Jul/08
Checked Vajs pics again. Maybe Oscar really is shorter than we really think. At least Vaj shows his real measured height.
Viper said on 30/Jun/08
Yeah, I cant argue against Vaj's evidence.
robbie said on 29/Jun/08
gotta admit tho vaj has good evidence
glenn said on 22/Jun/08
i call myself a loser all the time.but compared to some i know im a king.im not a real loser by any means.i mean it about myself in a different way.
glenn said on 22/Jun/08
true.life is what you make it or your own reality.you dont have fall trap to expected goal in life mediocrity.
sf said on 20/Jun/08
Yea, Glenn, but you're doing what you like and that's worth a lot, in itself.

You make your own schedule, meet interesting people. Life aint about money, although most people seem to think it is.
glenn said on 20/Jun/08
vaj is lucky to not have to be a autograph dealer.at least i do something different.but vaj makes real money.i dont.
vaj said on 19/Jun/08
James,
No, I am not a autograph dealer.
vaj said on 19/Jun/08
Vagas,
Mayweather was 2.5" shorter than me clearly seen in the photo. I was around him a lot in VIP section as he is a friendly guy. I did notice him wearing timberling boots. I was surprised that Oscar was 1" shorter than me.
Here is Oscar leaning next to my wife and if you can see my neck I am also leaning towards her and Oscar is not taller then me:
Click Here
I am 5'9" barefooted:

In shoes I am around 5'10.25" can look 5'10.5 b/c of my hair:

I spent hours around Oscar and he had on similar slip-on shoes as mine and he was 5'9.25" in shoes.
Vegas said on 17/Jun/08
vaj your head is clearly closer to the camera with mayweather, either that or your head is 3 inches longer than his (which i ain't buying) Click Here

your photo reminds me of this Click Here

thank you chis.
Chris said on 16/Jun/08
You should check into the height of randy couture. He is listed at between 6'1" and 6'2" and there is a video were he's standing next to de la hoya and looks about he same size...maybe shorter. I think a lot of MMA fighters inflate their height.

"people know you were wrong on the sly page.especially with you oscar claims.you never discuss other celebrities which adds to your madness.give it a rest.enjoy the rest of the site.lets debate outside oscar,sly and wood harrelson,which ive all proven you wrong with.owen wilson wont pose with people often.he is also 5-11."

Glenn,
Why do you insult people here on this site? Do you see what you do? I did not imply anything about you and yet you insult me? This site is about peoples opinion on celebritys height " their own opinion's" right or wrong ,not only yours!
On Woody Harldson's height he also claims 5'9" himself yet are you going to insult him as well? Are you going to tell him he is wrong and should change his drivers license:

I am positive Oscar is not 5'10" b/c I am not 5'10" unless I am in my shoes he was not taller than me. I was also surprised how small you look next to oscar,you look similar to May Weather height. May Weather also claims to be 5'8" yet you guys be the judge does he look 5'8" next to me I am 5'9" barefooted?:

vaj said on 29/May/08
I also stood next to Oscar for about a couple of hours while he was promoting his fight against Mayweather. I had plenty of time to compare his height to mine in many angles. Oscar had similar slip-on shoes like mine and he came up an 1" shorter then me. I am 5'10.25-5'10.5" in shoes and 5'9" barefooted.
zepptab said on 23/May/08
I stood next to Oscar at a party in East L.A in 1993 and he was EXACTLY my height, so 5'10.5 is correct....
robbie said on 19/May/08
i always thought he was 5'10 1/2 he looks tall on fight night but that may be because he always fights shorter fighters...glenn thanks for taking pics with all these boxers you're the man
vaj said on 14/May/08
Hoya is only 5'9" in shoes.
TJ said on 4/May/08
During the fight tonight, the commentator said that De La Hoya is 5'10.5.

Glenn -That Anonymous guy is an idiot and a jerk. You do this site an awesome service... you are the measuring stick to the stars! Question: Do the people you photograph with know you use the photos for height comparison?... Thanks Bud!
glenn said on 20/Mar/08
thanks shawn jones.lots of stupid and or jealous people.when they dont see or hear what they want,they come up with the most one dimensional theory possible.
Shawn Jones said on 19/Mar/08
Anonymous, you are seriously an idiot for doubting Glenn's claim of 5'8. All the evidence points to Glenn being 5'8. Other people who've encountered the same celebs usually agree with him, not to mention, if you compare pictures of celebs both Glenn and Rob have met, you'll see they come to pretty much the exact same level on that celeb.

As for Cruise and Reznor, go check their pages again. If you had taken the time to read over it, Glenn never flat out says they're 5'8, he says 5'7 is more likely. He also mentions he's in sneakers in both pics, whereas Reznor is wearing goth boots and Cruise is in dress shoes.

Glenn, please don't leave the site on account of morons who don't even have the balls to leave a name. Some of us here actually appreciate what you've done for the site.
footballed28 said on 14/Mar/08
oh oh and one more thing, Oscar is slouching big time in that picture
footballed28 said on 14/Mar/08
Josh granted he is closer to the camera...but you can still line up the two shoulders to know that he is at least 2 inches taller than glenn, if not a fraction more...I am pretty good at telling heights...and Rob the boardmaster agrees with me too ;)
Josh said on 1/Mar/08
Mmmmm he looks a tiny bit over 5'9 ,176cm , he doesn
dural said on 23/Feb/08

dural said on 20/Feb/08
glenn. you should read anonymous post first. i was just kidding. i support your opinion. that's it. no disrespect.
glenn said on 19/Feb/08
dural-to me you said one thing and then another.if i misunderstood,my most humble and deepest apoligies. veritically-so you see my point? you see them as being disrespectful too.i appreciate your words and support.

anonymous/dural....are you kidding me....glenn is posting this for our information/entertainment and you go and disrespect the dude like that...what the h3ll is wrong with you...both you guys are going to focus on glenn's height's...dude seriously both of you are visiting the wrong site....HEY GLENN KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BRO...I unlike some of these foolz appreciate the info...at least it gives me an idea...i am not sweatin' details, who cares if someone is 5'7" and 3/4 that's close enough to 5'8"
dural said on 19/Feb/08
glenn. what's up? have i said anything wrong? i was just joking. you should read between the lines. i was answering to anonymous. i know there's nothing wrong if you claim your morning height. i was claiming it myself. i appreciate your work on the here. but don't act like that if i say nothing against you.
Anonymous said on 19/Feb/08
well if it's ok to claim morning height now i can say that i am 6'5, so i guess that woks out doesn't it
Lmeister said on 19/Feb/08
So you guys think that ppl should say their daily average??? How about taking account slouching/bad posture? Basically you are saying that for instance Billy Bob Thornton is max 5ft9, because he has a bad posture? Celebs do shrink too. If Glenn is 5ft7.25 and Oscar is 5ft9 late at night that doesn't mean that those would be their "real" heights. Glenn is 5ft8 and Oscar around 5ft10...
