Thanks for adding Duran. Roberto is one of my favourite fighters and in my opinion a top 10 all time P4p great. 5'7" is the height he claims in his autobiography "I am Duran"- which is a great read by the way. Duran really lived his life to the full! How tall would you estimate Marvin Hagler to be Rob? He was usually listed as 5'9.5" but looked barely taler than Duran, in this picture below I'd doubt he was even 5'8"
5ft 9.5 is too high for Hagler, I think 5ft 8 range could be likelier.

Awrr, thanks Rob, for adding this Panamanian Diablo! I’ve met Roberto too (in the food court of the Trafford Centre of all places - he had come over on an invite from Ricky Hatton) & I have a pic with him from around Sept 2013. Yes, I too pegged Roberto at around 5 ft 6.5 inches tall (169 cm) at the time of meeting. Given that Duran was around 62 yrs old in Sept 2013, then a peak height of 5 ft 7 (170 cm) is more than believable for Duran. In real life, the guy is adorable. Duran spoke with me v cordially for almost half an hour & never ever indicated to me that he was bored or that he found me an irritation. Do you think that Sugar Ray Leonard (another boxer I love for his fighting skills & heart) would have behaved in a similar way (to Duran) if I too had met him in similar circumstances? NO WAY, JOSE! Now you have added Leonard & Duran, you really need to add the other three welterweight/middleweight legends of the 1980s....Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns & Wilfredo Benitez all need entries on your wonderful sight. And you can start with Hagler coz I believe he was the next most accomplished after Duran & Leonard. If poss, could you also do an entry on the Argentine Monster, Carlos Monzon...he was possibly the greatest middleweight in recorded history and he was a ‘giant’ of around 181/182 cm in ht! In temperament, Carlos made Roberto look like a pussycat. Anyway, THANKS FOR ADDING ROBERTO.
In hindsight, I should have got Hearns but as I mentioned in the past I didn't.
Duran is roughly 5ft 6.5, I do think he has lost at least half inch.
Certainly Stallone was a couple of inches taller than Duran 30 years ago.

Rob 1.80 cm height is eye level ?
If you are 180cm your eyelevel might be actually around Duran's height, 169cm, plus or minus a little bit
