I dont think there's any photos of Fury and AJ together. Nor of AJ and Wilder together. But if you look AJ and Wilder compared to 6'6.5 Breazeale, they look very similar.

@Thomas Roberto, Fury is way closer to the camera in your last post, its not a good picture to judge their height difference. What comes to Magic pictureäs, Fury indeed looks cleary shorter there. We all know Magic is 6'7.5 at the best, so that would make Fury under his current listing. But Magic's head looks huge in both pictures, so it's probably just the case of camera angle favoring Magic in those pictures. I dont think he is so visible taller than Fury in reality. Both are around 201-202cm.

Speak of A.J., I saw this old pic of him and Wlad recently: Click Here Pretty deceptive photo.

Fury has sparred with A.J. before, but I haven't seen them photographed.

Do we actually have any photos at all of Fury and AJ together? I can’t find any from a quick google search, but it seems implausible that they haven’t shared the same space before.
Mickie said on 28/May/19
@Thomas - He looked plenty taller than Noah in the other picture considering the likely footwear difference I thought. If you look at their eye levels and shoulder levels especially (because Noah has a hat) Tyson looks convincingly taller. Factor in the footwear and I can believe it's a pretty sizable difference. Although I don't know Noah's height exactly. But if Noah is 6'6" you could easily see Tyson being a big 6'8" range guy.

It's the Magic Johnson pictures that make me question things. Tyson look weirdly short next to Magic - makes me suspect Tyson could be 6'7" with Wladimir 6'4.5" - 6'4.75" and Deontay somewhere in the 6'5.5" - 6'6" range at a low. Tyson really seems more 6'6" next to Magic, but we already know he's good at looking shorter than he should in some photos. For example, next to big guys like Alex Ustinov you can see Tyson isn't a 6'6"-er as Tyson has a small, but apparent height advantage over the billed 202 cm Ustinov.

Regardless of whatever Tyson might measure, he's very difficult to pin down. He can look a believable 6'8" in one photo and struggling with 6'6" in the next.

Look at this image. A more level picture and Tyson clearly looks a lot taller than the baseball player
184guy2 said on 24/May/19
Magic probably had a bit of footwear advantage ( nothing about lifts ) and was a bit closer to the cam . He is billed 6'9 and we know he is closer to 6'7 but not necessarily a 6'7 flat . 6'7.5 it's ok to him and 6'7.25 do Tyson
Canson said on 24/May/19
@Mickie: it may just be the pic with Melo or a footwear advantage. Magic would likely have at least 2cm on Melo. Melo May be the full 6’6.25 Magic 6’7”

@Oldrich Werner: Just saw the pictures with Magic Johnson, and you are correct. I would say a half inch difference to be safe, but Magic is clearly the taller of the two. Tyson Fury maybe just 6'7 flat at a low. We are not aware of what footwear they are wearing but whatever it is, Magic is still taller, I would put Fury at 6'7.25.

Anyone who is aware of Magic Johnson's height knows Larry Bird had him by an inch and a half back in the 80s for sure. So it's really weird to see Tyson essentially look like he's struggling hard to be even 6'6" there. I wouldn't blame someone for estimating Tyson as a 6'5.5" guy from those photos alone.

Lest we forget, Tyson standing decently can look like he has a significant height advantage over Deontay Wilder, who most people estimate to be at least 6'6" himself: Click Here

Tyson did have very thin shoes on the Magic Johnson day (seen in the first picture) and did look pretty tall next to 6'6" listed (is he really that tall though?) Noah Syndergaard (who probably has baseball cleats vs Tyson's thin shoes): Click Here

However even accounting for thin footwear, in the Magic Johnson photos he just undeniably looks the shorter guy for whatever reason. It doesn't seem to make sense, but it's there. We know Magic is closer to 6'7" than the 6'9" he was listed at, and he doesn't particularly strike me as a lift wearer (although you never know I guess).
Mickie said on 22/May/19
Another thing that's confusing about the Magic pics. The way each stacks up next to Carmelo.

Pretty confusing lol.
Mickie said on 22/May/19
Fury looks shockingly short next to Magic. Don't know how to explain that, unless some of these other boxers like Wladimir and Wiilder are shorter than we all thought. Could David Allen have been on to something thinking Wlad was 6'4" range without lifts?
184guy2 said on 22/May/19
The truth is that Magic has never been just 6'7 , always a fraction over and maybe wears some questionable footwear

Check out Fury's Facebook. Just posted pics with Magic Johnson where is clearly at least an inch shorter than him. 201 cm max for Fury.

Mickie said on 8/May/19
Yeah I mean, 6'7.5" / 202 cm is a pretty fair estimate for him barefoot. I think you could find photos/video that would make a pretty strong case that he can't be under 6'7" or over 6'8".
Canson said on 5/May/19
205 is in shoes and no telling what time of the day or how thick the shoe is. I doubt he’s any taller barefoot than Rob lists him
Thomas Roberto said on 3/May/19
Click Here

Fury here says "205 Centimeters" which is 80.70 inches

It matches the measurement before the Pianete fight in August of 2018 (6 foot 8 3/4)

I'd say Fury is 6 foot 8 at least, but with boxing shoes on he is 6 foot 8 3/4
Lanny123 said on 30/Apr/19
I would say yes Peak Taker was taller than Fury, I'd say Taker peak was 6'7.5, he himself claimed that he is 6'8, Bruce Pitchard who knows him, said in 2017 that Taker is 6'7, so maybe he said that after Taker lost some height, for me he was between 6'7 and 6'8 peak, Fury is 6'7-6'7.25 at most.
Mickie said on 30/Apr/19
@Lanny - I wouldn't bet on peak Taker edging out Fury. Fury looked taller than the 6'7" guy anyway and seemed to be standing with worse posture (granted we can't see either shoes).

@Thomas - I don't think Fury would measure shorter when out of shape, but he may stand a bit worse with his posture, that's possible.
Thomas Roberto said on 29/Apr/19
@lanny123 That's also Fury when he's out of shape and obese. When he's lean he's definitely a bit taller
S. App said on 29/Apr/19
He looked over 6'9 when I met him. I'm definitely 6ft and he was at least 9 inches taller than me.

Tyson Fury is 6 foot 8 , David Price is 6 foot 8 , Deontay Wilder is 6'6.5" . Anthony Joshua is 6'5.75"
Mickie said on 15/Apr/19
Hard to tell the exact difference due to their stances, but you can see Fury is the bigger guy: Click Here

I think the difference between Wlad and Fury is 2.5 inches.
Thomas Roberto said on 13/Apr/19
@Mickie Is there any good picture of them in the ring that shows the height difference? Boxing shoes of course aren't the same as normal shoes
Mickie said on 13/Apr/19
@ Thomas Roberto - I think for morning heights your guesses are probably quite accurate. Wladimir himself has reportedly mentioned that 6'6" is a morning height. Fury can look about 2.5 inches taller at times when Wladimir wasn't in lifts.
Thomas Roberto said on 11/Apr/19
Tyson Fury to me is around 6 foot 8 and 1/2 inches. If Wilder is 6 foot 7 and Wlad is around 6 foot 6, I think it's fair to say that he has the height advantage over both of them.

Click Here

Here Fury is next to Wlad at a presser. He's looking at least 6 foot 8 .5 or 6 foot 9.
Daniel reynolds said on 10/Apr/19
I have whatch tyson a number of times against other guys and i would definately say he was a good ft6,9. Because he was a few on wladimir and wladimir had to box upwsrds and take chances like he hadn,t before. If you look at the 2 face to face you would say for sure tyson is no less than ft6,8.
Mickie said on 8/Apr/19
@JD1996 - I agree he drops height a lot with posture. I spent a long time trying to explain that to people before the Wilder fight, but people didn't really accept it until they saw them in the ring in boxing footwear. I think the worst case for Fury is a strong 6'7" but I can also envision the possibility of him straightening up to a weak 6'8". In any event, I think Rob's 6'7.5" listing can't be far off (for later and the day and barefoot).
JD1996 said on 6/Apr/19
I think if he stood with better posture he would surprise people with how tall he actually is, i think in his usual slumpy posture looks about 6'7" but if he stood properly he would be 6'8" or very close to it. One of my friends is an example of this, he can often look barely 6'4" but when when he stands properly it's clear he's at least 6'5" same situation for fury I would say.
Canson said on 4/Apr/19
I doubt he’s more than Rob lists him going off a low. I’d argue under 6’7.5 vs over
JD1996 said on 22/Mar/19
79.75-80 inches tall evening imo, not 6'9" barefoot probably at or near it in shoes though. He's noticeably taller than wilder about 1 3/4 inches.
Mickie said on 17/Mar/19
@Crane - For Fury I think his looking taller than Alex Ustinov and Scott Belshaw, close to Wach's height (with thinner footwear) , and appearing something in the neighborhood of an inch and a half taller than Wilder in the ring and press conference makes over a flat 6'7" in my book. But I do think David Price is the taller of the two.
Canson said on 17/Mar/19
@Crane: wilder is 6’6 and so is Joshua 6’5.5-6’6” he’s not as low as 6’5” next to Rob. But for Fury I have him about what you said 6’7.25 and 6’8” out of bed.
Crane said on 15/Mar/19
@Canson Fury was never 6'8.. In fact, he was not even 6'7.5.

Fury real height, when he made his Boxing debut was 6'7 then later changed to 6'9 and then down to 6'8.

The same goes for 6'6 Deontay Wilder and 6'5 Anthony Joshua.

The only true 6'8 Boxer is David Price.
Canson said on 11/Mar/19
I doubt he would maintain 6’8” throughout the day but he would perhaps wake up a little over and come down to around 6’7.25. I think a low may be 6’8.5 in some shoes
Mickie said on 6/Mar/19
I think this listed height deserves a mention in the description at the top of the page. Possibly a morning height, or very conceivably a height in shoes... Click Here
Editor Rob
It is a very specific figure for him, worth mentioning, I forgot to do that when it was talked about at the time of that match.
Mickie said on 1/Mar/19
@movieguy12 If you meant me as the poster who suggested 6'6" - I didn't mean to suggest Tyson was only that height. I only thought he looked 6'6" in the one of photos next to Patrick and that he looked 6'8" in the other photo from the mobile phone. As for what he'd actually measure - I think worst case scenario for Fury is a strong 6'7". I could picture him measuring closer to 6'8" too honestly. He has pretty lax posture a lot of the time, and can look shorter than he'd actually measure.
Canson said on 1/Mar/19
6’7-6’7.5 range
Gman39 said on 1/Mar/19
Great job by Mickie to work up the comparisons. The only thing I am sure of is that Fury is between 6'7 and 6'8. He is not a guy I can settle on a single height with - the jury is still out. Hopefully we will see him facing off with Joshua sometime soon..
moveiguy12 said on 28/Feb/19
Great photos from Patrick Whelan. It is strange how the difference looks noticeably greater in the mobile than pro photo as Patrick himself says. There is no way Fury is only 6'6'' though as possibly suggested by another poster. The minimum I'd go with if the 6'7.5'' height given on this page. Fury might not be taller than this but he isn't shorter either.
Mickie said on 18/Feb/19
I took a stab at making 2 comparisons between Fury with Patrick and Kevin Nash with Rob. Photo 1 Fury looked a couple pixels taller than Nash, and in comparison 2 Nash looked solidly an inch and a half taller, like the difference is listed at on this site: Click Here

Each big man looks like they're not standing quite at full height in the pics. I'd say Nash "appears" 202 cm range in the pictures if you don't account for posture, and Fury "appears" around 202.5 - 203 cm in the first and perhaps 198 cm in the second. He only looks 6'6" to me there, even though I see more 6'8"-ish in the first. I do think Nash measures over 6'8" standing straight.
Mickie said on 18/Feb/19
Yeah, Fury looks taller in the mobile picture than the pro one. I can see 6'8"-ish in the mobile one but not in the pro one.
Patrick Whelan said on 18/Feb/19
Mickie : yea it is my Twitter pic 👍🏻 Rob .. sent some pics in an email to you. Is weird as got 3 pics with Fury that night . 2 on my mobile that an employee of the leisure centre took.. and 1 that was a Pro one all on a proper tripod ..very straight on etc . In the Pro one Fury appears to look not quite as tall as in the Mobile taken ones !.. even though was only about an hour or so between pic taking. It’s possible in the pro one that Tyson could be a clear foot taller fhan me. Therefore could be that he is indeed a bit under 6 feet 8 as you have him listed... and his shoes rounded him up to 6.8... me standing 5.8 ish 👍🏻 He’s a great character Fury.... and can be guilty of slight exaggeration in the past . I guess it’s all part of the Gypsy King Charm and Character 😁💪🏼
Editor Rob
I just uploaded that photo Here. The small version was the one you had sent, it looked like a thumbnail version that got sent...but you could still tell there was a difference in his height between the 2 different angles.
Mickie said on 14/Feb/19
@ Patrick Whalen - is your twitter pic you and Tyson? Because if it is I think I saw it. I'd like to see Rob create one of those side by side photos comparing your photo along side his own photo with Kevin Nash.
Patrick Whelan said on 12/Feb/19
I was at an event last weekend and met Tyson Fury . Now I am only 5 feet 7 (ish) on a good day 😁... however .. before me and my Girlfriend left for the show I actually stood on a Stadiometer that was still out round her place because she had been measuring a couple of the kids. In my shoes I was a bit over 5 feet 8.. and said it will be interesting to see how small I looked next to Fury later ( we were to have a photo etc with him) ... well.... the guy is massive ... and I believe he is indeed 6 feet 9 ... or very very close to it . I basically just about made it to his shoulder.. if it’s possible I can post the pic ?and give others the chance to see what I mean. The guys fist in the pose is literally bigger than my head.! He’s a proper big fella who has easily the dimensigns of a man who at the very least would be a good 6 feet 8 and 3 quarters bare feet I would say 👍🏻💪🏼

See if you can upload it to and paste a link or email it to me and I'll do it (robpaul At
Mickie said on 11/Feb/19
@184guy2 - I don't think he's quite 6'8" later in the day, but I think he could be very close to that. He doesn't stand well much of the time, which makes people think he's shorter than he really is. I wouldn't rule out something like 6'7.75". He was distinctly taller than Wilder when both were in boxing shoes. The estimate would depend on how tall you think Wilder is. Fury is more than one inch taller but less than two inches, in my opinion.
Canson said on 11/Feb/19
@Mickie: I think he’s at least 6’7” probably more 6’7.25 actually. Maybe Vitaly Klitschko would be weak 6’7” however.

@184guy: likely 6’8” out of bed
Gman39 said on 11/Feb/19
What sticks in my mind is that Wlad (sneakers) was able to match Fury (barefoot) for height, I imagine Wlad had orthodics or a lift in those sneakers. Still, Wlad 6'5.25 + 2 inches = 6'7.25. That is what Fury seemed on that day. I do believe 6'5.5 is possible for Wlad but still, I can't quite figure Fury out.
184guy2 said on 10/Feb/19
Unless talking about morning heights , which we don't
184guy2 said on 10/Feb/19
Fury at 6'8 is laughable
Gman39 said on 7/Feb/19
For me, Wlad and Vitali are about 3 cm apart. I think Vitali is 6'6.5". This mean's Wilder is 6'6.5" and Fury is minimum 6'7.5" and could be 6'8".
Mickie said on 7/Feb/19
Vitali at 6'6.75" is good with me. I think it has to be either 6'6.75" or 6'6.5" for him. I don't think he's quite the full 6'7" but I do think he's very close.
Canson said on 4/Feb/19
@Mickie: I would give Vitali 6’6.75 (200 cm) at a low. Looks roughly 4 cm difference between he and Wlad
Reece said on 4/Feb/19
Vitali looked 6 foot 7 the full thing next to Odam for sure. But pictures can be deciving.Odam is probably just under 6 foot 9 barefoot.
Mickie said on 3/Feb/19
Vitali could be 6'6.5", but I wouldn't go under that though. He looked pretty tall next to Lamar Odom. Vitali at 6'6.5" or 6'6.75" would make sense to me.
Gman39 said on 1/Feb/19
If Wlad really is 6'5.25, perhaps Vitali is 6'6.25, I always thought there was only about an inch or inch and a quarter between them.
movieguy12 said on 31/Jan/19
I'm not sure about downgrading Wilder. He went back to back with Vitali Klitschko and was the same height. Vitali looks 6'7''. Also his brother Wlad has said in a comparison between Wilder and Joshua that Wilder is taller. Again how tall is Fury actually? OK the 6'9'' seems slightly inflated but is he only a little shorter than this which would mean Wilder could still be 6'7'' or so.
JD1996 said on 14/Jan/19
Could be fury 6'7.75" if wilder is 6'6" flat I guess, and yeah wilder is probably a touch smaller than melo in the picture even if there is a slight advantage in his favour I suppose.
Gman39 said on 14/Jan/19
I can see Wilder 6'6 flat and Fury 6'7.25. I still believe 1.5 inches represents their max height difference. There are still numerous photographic examples of a 1 to 1.25 inch height difference.
Lanky said on 13/Jan/19
I can definitely agree with Canson - Rob, time to downgrade Wilder a tad to 6’6” flat? Then Fury at 6’7.5” makes sense.
Canson said on 9/Jan/19
@GMAN39: Thanks!

@JD1996: at times 1.5” may be the truth. I’ve seen as low as 3cm at times as well but maybe as high as 4. I think if Rob dropped Wilder to 6’6” flat seeing as how he looks shorter than Melo due to the angle of the pic it would correct it. A 6’6” wilder and a 6’7.5 Fury make math work
Gman39 said on 7/Jan/19
I agree with Canson 100%.
JD1996 said on 6/Jan/19
He looks 1.5 inches taller minimum than wilder I would say closer to 2.
Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Mickie: I doubt that high out of bed. I do agree probably a full inch tho for someone his size. I would go with 6’8.25 out of bed or between 6’8-6’8.25 then 6’7-6’7.25 for the low. That’s kinda like Lebron when people refer to him as 6’9” although I have Lebron as a solid 6’7” max but Fury would be probably weak 6’8 in the morning after an hour or two when he would be measured making him 6’8.5-6’8.75 with shoes then. But I won’t rule out closer to 6’7.5 and 6’8.5 either since the listing and since he had a pronounced advantage on Wilder.

Mickie said on 5/Jan/19
I'd say a worst case scenario for Tyson would be about where Canson has him, a strong 201 cm. But personally after seeing the Wilder fight and build up, it's got me thinking that the 6'8.75" he's been listed at might well be his out of bed height. I just thought he looked a good inch and a half taller than Wilder, who I see as being 6'7"+ out of bed.

If Fury is 6'8.75" first thing in the morning, I think that'd suggest a weak 6'8" for his afternoon height (he's such a big guy, I'd imagine he'd lose at least a full inch). If Tyson is really 202 cm or less, I think Deontay Wilder's 6'6.5" listing needs to be brought down. If I was Rob, I would consider listing Tyson a fraction higher and/or Wilder a fraction lower.
Canson said on 30/Dec/18
No less than 6’7” but quite possibly 6’7.25. That’s very much in line with a typical athlete claiming 6’9” as they would be a bit taller earlier in the day and near 6’9” in shoes at that stage
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
Tyson Fury stands no more than 6'9" after sleeping for 12 hours .

After a long day of work he can't be under 6'8" , as a human being loses about 1 percent of his height throughout the day .

Conclusion : Nothing under 6'8" makes sense , I thinks everyone agrees that Wilder is at least 6'6.5" at night and 6'7" when he wakes up . The height difference between these two men are not more than 2 inches , it can not be !
JD1996 said on 23/Dec/18
To me he seems to be around 6'8"
Mickie said on 21/Dec/18
2 views - first what Tyson looks like tip toeing with Wilder. Second, what he looks like flat footed with similar posture to Wilder: Click Here

I think Tyson has Wilder by a solid inch and a half. The more I look at it, the more I can understand the difference being nearly 2". But I'll still go with 1.5" for the time being. I think that's fair. When Tyson doesn't stand tall, they can look much closer in height. He drops a lot of height at times.
Gman39 said on 20/Dec/18
JD1996, I believe Tyson is tip-toeing in your photo, their height difference is not quite that much. It's about 1.25 to 1.5 inches imho. It could be 6'6.25 Wilder and 6'7.5 Tyson.

How tall is his brother? He looks surprisingly short ( Ricky Hatton is 5’6-7 btw)

He looks about 5’10 to me maybe he’s still growing as he’s just turned 19 - no doubt amazing physique

JD1996 said on 19/Dec/18
Click Here The difference betweeen wilder and fury seems around 5 cm to me, whatever wilder is fury is about 5 cm taller. Wilder could be 6'5.75" I'm not really sure on his actual height tbh looks about an inch taller than wladimir klitschko does.

It's more than an inch between the two fighters.
Mickie said on 19/Dec/18
@ Christian - I used to think the difference was 2 to 3 cm also, but my mind changed after the final press conference, weigh in, and most of all seeing them in the ring. Having seen them both in scant footwear like boxing shoes I think the difference is more like 1.25" - 1.75" range instead. About an inch and a half give or take. Can't see just an inch.

5:20-5:25... his wife says hes 6'7", good enough for me. That makes wilder probably 6'6 or 6'6.25
Editor Rob
I don't think Tyson would be happy to hear that from his beloved!
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
6’7” wouldn’t make Deontay 6’5.25. That’s an inch or max 3cm between them. If anything 6’5.75 perhaps but that is believeable with Wilder and Carmelo Anthony in the pic since Melo is slightly taller (not sure how much camera influences it). I have wilder 6’6” flat
JD1996 said on 18/Dec/18
Agree with lanky at times he can look his 6'9" claim but doesent exactly mean he is 6'9" still think he is a good 6'8" though
VelikiSrbinn said on 18/Dec/18
@ Mickie

Kevin Love, Hafthor, Tyson Fury, Magic Johnson IMO
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 17/Dec/18

3cm difference is the max. 2.5cm is possible as well, putting Fury at 6'7" flat.
Canson said on 17/Dec/18
@184guy: probably strong 6’7”. Like 6’7.25. He’d make 6’9” in shoes if he had a physical around the time of a combine although a flat 6’7” wouldn’t be much of a surprise either to tell you the truth. I can see 6’8” out of bed
JD1996 said on 17/Dec/18
6'7" is definitely low for fury that would make deontay 6'5.25" at best
Lanky said on 17/Dec/18
Looked enormous on SPOTY last night. Dwarfed Gary Lineker. It’s at times like that when he can look a believable 6’9”. Not saying he is, but he can look it.

Tyson isn't 6'8
He looks 2cms shorter than 6'8 David Price in all pics of them togethet
He is a good 6'7er only
Mickie said on 13/Dec/18
@184guy2 - Fury had no footwear advantage over Wilder nor tip toed in the ring. But Fury still was 1.5" taller than Wilder. Btw I thought he had an easy 2" on Joe Joyce, although Joyce's hairstyle leaves some reasonable room for debate.
184guy2 said on 12/Dec/18
Generally in all pics Fury had the footwear advantage over Wilder. Other thing , Fury usually tip toeing agains his oponents to look even taller. Fury struggles to looks over 6'7 with 6'5.5 listed Joe Joyce in same footwear and similarly posture .
JD1996 said on 12/Dec/18
Fury looks to be the same height as price or at most 1 cm shorter Click Here and fury honestly looks around 1.75-2 inches taller that deontay wilder who is an inch or up to 3 cm on vlad Click Here. Also fury looks a good couple of inches taller than Deontay in this photo which shows them both from above it's clear the top of furys head come a couple inches higher Click Here. I think wladimir 6'5.25", deontay 6'6.25-5", and Tyson fury 6'8" maybe a hair more or less.
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@184 guy: I think he could have 1.25” on him which is roughly 3cm. But no higher. A 6’6” Wilder puts Fury 6’7.25 still.
Reece said on 11/Dec/18
Fury was only a tad shorter than Price if not even the same height as Price in the airport picture in 2014 when Fury was in better shape . It was only with the weigh gain in 2017 and his poor posture effected his height.
Fury posture is not very good so he is rarely standing straight.
Anything under 202cm is just too low.
Mickie said on 10/Dec/18
@184guy2 - Did you see them at the weigh in and in the ring? Fury had more than an inch on Wilder. The question is whether Fury is a bit taller than he's listed or if Wilder is a bit shorter than he's listed. I do get it with Fury, thinking he's shorter than he really is. He drops height in photos a lot. But next to Wilder in the weigh in and in the ring, Fury is something like an inch and a half taller, rather than the same height as Wilder like some observers thought.
184guy2 said on 9/Dec/18
I really doubt that Fury has over 1 inch on Wilder...
He also was visible shorter than David Price
Didn't looked a full 2'' on Joe Joyce
He might be more 6'7-6'7.25 than 6'7.5 or over
He also looked shorter than WLAD (with lifts) on normal footwear
Micke said on 8/Dec/18
@ JD1996 - Yeah I wouldn't rule that out either.
Canson said on 8/Dec/18
@Mickie: funny thing is I thought Afrojack was 6’7+ before but today I see that he isn’t any taller than someone like Lebron if he’s even as tall as he is. I could see as low as 6’6.5 for him at times then 6’7” at other times at a push.
Gman39 said on 7/Dec/18
The 6'8.75 measurement is very likely his height in running/athletic sneakers.
Mickie said on 6/Dec/18
@ Canson - you could be right about the tallest and shortest of the 4. I should've also mentioned Afrojack could be included in that club of billed 6'9" + guys who Rob has sub 6'8". I think he'd be the shortest if he was included.
Mickie said on 6/Dec/18
Rob, I believe his 6'8.75" billing is worth mentioning in the description too: Click Here

I believe that height seems like it could be either a morning height or a height in shoes.
JD1996 said on 6/Dec/18
@Mickie I think fury would edge them all by a little
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/18

My bet would be on Hafthor, just because Rob met him and estimated him at 6'7.75", although he looks 6'7.25" next to him though, so it's hard to say. I think Magic would be the shortest out the 4 though.
Gman39 said on 5/Dec/18
After all the dust has settled, I think 6'6.25 Wilder and 6'7.5 Fury.
Canson said on 5/Dec/18
@Ellis: Christian made a good point. Even with camera advantage Melo could look taller. I would want a better pic of them where we can see them right next to each other and footwear. Either way I can’t see Wilder above 6’6” flat with him especially being Melo would not exceed 6’6” by more than maybe his pre draft measurement if even that high. Only other variable could be that one was up less time than the other. Melo looks around the height he is on his pre draft not only in person but in pictures. Look at him with Lebron or Kobe or a guy like Per Matsecker who is 6’6.25 as well. I think Fury needs a similar downgrade albeit not quite as much. I see 3cm between them 198 vs 201
Mickie said on 5/Dec/18
I wonder who is the tallest to shortest between: Tyson Fury, Kevin Love, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson, and Magic Johnson (peak).

All these guys who have been listed at 6'9" or taller in some sources.
Mr S said on 5/Dec/18
If a 5'8" man can shrink almost 2cm throughout the day then I can believe around 6'9" for Fury straight out of bed, although later in the day below 6'8" looks more likely.
JD1996 said on 5/Dec/18
I feel like fury had closer to 2 inches on wilder, fury is probably 6 ft 8-.25 give or take, he was noticeably taller by more than just an inch!
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Christian: agreed on Both

@Lanky: Melo edged him in the pic but had camera advantage. Not sure how much effect. I would say that Wilder is max 6’6” tho
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Christian: I agree. 6’6 for Wilder
Ellis said on 4/Dec/18
@Lanky: Actually that sounds better, Wilder is 6'6.25, Fury is 6'7.5 or like you said 6'7.75
@Christian 6'5 3/8: I agree that Wilder needs a downgrade, but 6'6 flat is a bit low, same for Fury, Fury looked a good bit taller than Wilder, what I mean by that is in all scenarios Fury looked taller in the ring.

I didn't like the attire that Wilder decided to wear, I like it when Wilder is wearing the more traditional mask, the one that covers his entire face. He looked like bane from Batman when he was in his entrance, I liked his song choice though Win by Jay Rock.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Dec/18

Wilder could be just 6'6" flat, while I can maybe see 6'7.25" for Fury at a push. 6'8" is too high though.
Lanky said on 4/Dec/18
If we think back to Wilder’s pics with Melo, and then factor in Mickie’s post below, maybe we should have something like Wilder 6’6.25” and Fury 6’7.75” Rob?
Mickie said on 3/Dec/18
I've changed my mind after the weigh in and fight. I thought there was an inch between Wilder and Fury before. I think it's more than that now.

I really think either Fury should be listed at closer to 6'8" or Wilder should be listed closer to 6'6".
Lanky said on 3/Dec/18
I don’t know about everyone else, but I found it pretty difficult to accurately gauge the difference in height during the fight. I could tell Fury was taller, but by what sort of margin exactly I wasn’t exaclty sure.
Bette said on 3/Dec/18
Tyson is 6' 9" tall.
We know him personally. He is mahoosif!
Bigfern194-192cm said on 28/Nov/18
I gotta say it Tyson looked no less than 1.5 inches taller than Deontay today at the Presser. At times the full 2 inches. Maybe a slight footwear advantage but I really do not think he is less than 6,8 when standing straight. Might even be 6,8.25. I think if this holds up on Saturday at the fight Tyson is in need of an upgrade or Deontary is need of a downgrade to 6,5.5

Hopefully at the weigh in coming up, Wilder and Fury can have a barefoot stare down. And I hope Fury won't slouch or tip toe.

It will be interesting to see what they each weigh in at. I'm thinking Fury might weigh in about 251 and Wilder 30 lbs lighter or so.
movieguy12 said on 27/Nov/18
It will be interesting the weigh in of the Wilder Fury fight. I suspect Fury will have the advantage if they go head to head but not by 2 inches. He may well do that tip toe thing again.

When Fury stands decently, he can look very tall.
Mickie said on 21/Nov/18
6'5" listed Lawrence Okolie looks to have a footwear advantage in this shot: Click Here
Mickie said on 16/Nov/18
When you have a low camera angle, it tends to make height differences look less (if distance from the camera is similar) and makes people closer to the camera look taller.
Robbe said on 16/Nov/18
That "big guy" on the left is boxing trainer Barry Robinson. Here with 187cm listed Alexander Hagen. Robinson looks around 195-196cm to me. Click Here

The guy on the left background is Lawrence Okolie who is 6'5. Guys on the right i dont recognise, but they are most likely also shorter than Tyson. Duhon's picture is really a good example how pictures can lie.
Gman39 said on 15/Nov/18
@Duhon - All about 7 foot plus or minus a couple inches, being that Fury is 6'9 ;) Just kidding, they are all tall, 6'6-6'8 range. Hard to tell exactly..
Robbe said on 15/Nov/18
@Duhon, Tyson would probably be tallest of them all. It's just the camera angle foolin. The guy on the left, who seems to dwarf Tyson, is actually only 6'5.
Mickie said on 15/Nov/18
And of course, Fury with a footwear advantage can look very tall next to Wilder: Click Here

The difference isn't that large in equal footwear and Wilder is giving up more height in stance... But wow.
Abdi7 said on 14/Nov/18
Okolie is 6ft5
Mickie said on 14/Nov/18
For a funny comparison - look at how little he makes Joe Rogan look LOL Click Here
Mickie said on 14/Nov/18
@Duhon - it's hard to tell with that camera angle but it looks like the guys standing in front of Fury might be close to his height and the guys behind a bit shorter. Who are they? Actually - the guys behind him might be taller than they look too, again due to the camera angle
Robbe said on 14/Nov/18
Tyson in boxing shoes is definitely shorter than Wilder in sneakers. Question is how much Wilder has shoe advantage there? Click Here
Duhon said on 14/Nov/18
How tall would these guys standing around Fury be? Click Here
Robbe said on 13/Nov/18
@Gman39, that pic was actually taken at the weigh in, so it's more likely Wilder is barefoot there, and Kelvin has shoes on. Here's another pic from the same event Click Here

Here Joyce and Hughie Fury. They look very close, but Joyce is in boxing shoes, and Hughie in trainers Click Here
Gman39 said on 12/Nov/18
It is possible Wilder is in boxing shoes in the photo with Kelvin Price, he could be at a footwear disadvantage there. I would believe up to a two inch difference between Joe Joyce and Fury but I think it is slightly less than that. I am not sure how tall Joyce is yet but he looks about 3.5 inches taller than Haye.
Micke said on 11/Nov/18
I think Fury looked to have Joyce by at least a solid duece. It was hard to tell exactly due to Joyce's high hair, but Fury's eye line was mighty far above Joyce's. Even accounting for their subtle head tilts it seemed impossible to imagine a difference of less than 2" unless Joyce has an extremely tall forehead. I could see an argument for just over 2" or right around it.
Gman39 said on 10/Nov/18
Like I said, height difference between Fury and Wilder is 1in or less. No need to downgrade others if Fury is a flat 6'7. Joyce could be just 1.5in shorter in that great photo. And I never believed Wlad was 2in shorter. I would accept 6'5.5 for Wlad and 6'7 for Fury. However, I think Fury is 6'7.25.
Mickie said on 10/Nov/18
Having seen the video, I noticed Fury seemed to drop height in that stare down with Wilder in order to be eye to eye with him. Click Here
Robbe said on 10/Nov/18
Fury wins by 1cm due to bigger forehead Click Here

If Wilder is 199cm, Fury is 200cm. If Wilder is 199,5cm, Fury is 200,5cm, If Wilder is 200cm, Fury is 201cm, and so on..
Reece said on 10/Nov/18
The chance Wlad is 195cm is very small. He is clearly taller than Lennox Lewis and Tony Thompson who is near about that.

I cannot see Fury being under 202cm. The chance of Fury being 201cm is the same as him being 204cm.
202-203cm are the best guesses.
Abdi7 said on 9/Nov/18
Wilder can’t be less than 2m and fury is not over than 6’7
Robbe said on 9/Nov/18
@Mickie, Tyson is closer to the camera in your video, and he has footwear advantage there. In my video Tyson looks indeed taller at some point, but on the other hand, shooted from other side, they look very close.

Click Here

About Wilder, personally i think he is 200cm, but it's not impossible he is the same height as Carmelo Anthony. You never know. Here Wilder looking clearly shorter than 6'7 listed Kelvin Price Click Here

Im not saying Tyson and Wilder are the same height, they just look sometimes very close. It's obvious Tyson is the taller one, but i wouldn't be surprised if he's only 1cm taller. It's only 3 weeks now to the fight. Looking forward.
Mickie said on 8/Nov/18
And then there is this video: Click Here

Look, I have no problem with Fury being a flat 6'7" in theory, as long as Wilder is changed to
6'6", Joe Joyce to 6'5", and Wladimir to 6'4.75". Fury is an inch taller than Wilder when standing well - even in the video Robbe just posted you can see Fury standing taller than Wilder before he sort of "sinks" down to close the height gap and be eye to eye.
Mickie said on 8/Nov/18
@Abdi7 No he isn't tip toeing. If you go back a couple seconds in the video he was, but it's plainly obvious that he isn't at 9:21 - 9:22. They are flat footed and each standing their tallest
Robbe said on 8/Nov/18
Wilder and Fury looks pretty much the same in this video. For once, they might be wearing boxing shoes both there?

Joyce's hair makes it hard to judge, but it looks like Tyson might have him by 5 or 6 cm. Larry Bird is obviously the taller guy, he's an actual 6'9" guy.

@Robbe: agreed. He’s an athlete though. A 6’9 claim is likely just for the programs
Gman39 said on 4/Nov/18
Interesting, Fury's eye line is a lot higher than Joyce, but the top of his head seems max 1.5 higher. Hard to be sure with all that hair Joyce has. This photo put's Fury in the 6'7 to 6'7.5 range, depending on how tall you think Joyce is.
Claudio said on 4/Nov/18
@Lanky Brendan Schaub is 6'4". Problems in identifying height arise when people that are compared with are underestimated. As for Fury I think he knows alot about height and is 6'8 3/4" out for bed. He probably loses a minimum of an inch throughout the day, he may drop to 6'7 1/2". Wilder is a solid 6'7", same as Vitali.
Robbe said on 4/Nov/18
@Canson, i have been wondering the same. If Tyson is really 6'9, like he claims, he should look like this with Joyce. Chris Mullin is pretty much the same height as Joe Joyce. Larry Bird is 6'9. Click Here
Mickie said on 3/Nov/18
He almost certainly isn't a lift wearer, because if he had been, he wouldn't have allowed Wladimir to match his size. In the ring there was about 2 and change between them.
Robbe said on 3/Nov/18
For once, Tyson is not tip toeing here with Joe Joyce, who is around 196-197cm, Click Here
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@184guy: I wonder if he ever wears lifts. He could play Wlad’s game
Mickie said on 2/Nov/18
He's not 200 cm. He's more than that. Click Here

The debate isn't between 6'6" or 6'7" for Fury. It's whether he's closer to 6'7" or 6'8". He's visibly taller than Wilder is (in similar footwear) and some people even think he's 6'6.75" - 6'7" range.
Mickie said on 2/Nov/18
Giving it another close look I don't think his front foot is raised in that Joe Joyce pic, but admittedly it's a hard to tell for sure.
Mickie said on 2/Nov/18
One of the things that makes Tyson hard to estimate, I think more so than his tip toeing sometimes, is the fact that he often drops height in photos.
184guy2 said on 2/Nov/18
C'mon Rob
Tyson is easily 6'9
Tip toeing , of course ...
Editor Rob
If Tyson took up ballet, he might even reach 7ft on pointe.
Abdi7 said on 1/Nov/18
Gman39 said on 1/Nov/18
I think Tyson is tip toeing with both feet in that pic, just a bit more with the right foot. He looks close to his 6'9 claim in that shot, tip toeing of course. Great photo Mickie.
Robbe said on 1/Nov/18
Hughie looked only slightly taller than 194cm listed Kubrat Pulev. Funny thing is, Pulev was dwarfed by Wlad :D Click Here
movieguy12 said on 31/Oct/18
Why does fury do that weird tip toe thing. It's not like he's short. Is it so that he always looks bigger than anyone else. He's a very tall guy but looks no taller than Wach. Klitschko said the same before their fight saying fury was not as tall as claimed. After his last fight fury was interviewed by a genuine 6'9" guy I believe and he was taller than fury.
Gman39 said on 31/Oct/18
It's very tough to tell height difference in a boxing ring, Wlad had a very wide stance in there with Fury. If I had to guess their height difference looking at them during the fight I'd have said 2 inches. And I think in reality they are 1.75 inches apart in height (6'5.5 and 6'7.25), in Fury's favor of course. Wlad is the same height as Joshua, for all intents and purposes, you can hardly split them.
Lanky said on 31/Oct/18
Hmm, here he is with 6’3” Brendan Schaub. What would we give him here? Click Here
Editor Rob
depends if he has lost near an inch more height...but hard to see him near 6ft 8 there
Mickie said on 31/Oct/18
Tyson does have an odd penchant for tip toeing. He even did it in the face off with Sefer who he towered over already. It strikes me more as clowning around, since it's in plain vision when you do that, rather than Wladimir who I think really is intending to get inside people's heads with stealthy lifts.

In this one photo with Joe Joyce, he goes on his toes on only one foot. You can't add nearly as much height that way as going up on both feet, but you can definitely stand slightly taller than flat footed. Joyce meanwhile has the advantage of high hair. Click Here
Robbe said on 30/Oct/18
Hughie Fury is 6'5 on a good day. He is visible shorter than AJ. Tyson is at least 2in taller than Hughie. Wlad is really a tuff one, in the previous picture, without shirts, he looks only about an inch shorter than Tyson, but in the ring he looked almost 3in shorter. You never know if he's wearing lifts, or not. But he never tiptoes, credit to that. Once again, Tyson tiptoeing here Click Here
Gman39 said on 29/Oct/18
Reece, are you sure Wach is barefoot in the picture with Wlad? Sometimes the guy who goes first on the scale has enough time to get his shoes back on while the other guy does not. Idk just asking.
Reece said on 27/Oct/18
Pictures of him not standing well. And he stood better with Vitali when he was actually standing tall. Ustinov could be a weak 6 foot 7 that would make sense if he is giving a shoe height.
And Wlad was wearing dresser shoes vs Fury probably with a little lift.
Wlad and Wach were barefoot.
movieguy12 said on 27/Oct/18
Hughie Fury his cousin claims 6'6'' but I doubt this as well. I'd put 6'5'' possibly but no more. Hughie called out Wlad for wearing lifts at the Fury Klitschko weigh in and was probably right about this. However Hughie didn't look much taller than his opponent Pulev at the weigh in of their fight tonight once you take into account his hair. I wonder if these athletes have ever been properly measured minus footwear. Their given heights seem to be accurate if they are wearing boots or something.
Lanky said on 26/Oct/18
Again claimed 6’9” on Joe Rogan’s Podcast this week. Said Wilder is 6’7”.
Mickie said on 26/Oct/18
I agree that Fury was taller than Ustinov. I don't know enough about Ustinov to peg an exact height, but he certainly appears not as tall as billed in that one Helenius picture.
Robbe said on 25/Oct/18
Btw, i have allways suspected Alexander Ustinov is not 6'7.5, he looked shorter than Tyson, and looks actually shorter than 6'6.5 Helenius Click Here
Robbe said on 24/Oct/18
To me Wach looks taller than Fury compared to Wlad.

Click Here

Click Here

Wlad's eyeline hits at Fury's upper nose, and at Wach's lower nose. Both mens forehead is about the same size. Looks like Wach is a good 1cm taller than Fury, according to those pics.
Mickie said on 23/Oct/18
@Reece - I think you might be right about that. Fury probably would be the more likely to measure some mm taller but we're talking about 1 cm or less. They're almost identical.
Reece said on 22/Oct/18
I think Wach is a little shorter than Fury barefoot . He looked shorter next to Wlad than did Fury.
Mickie said on 20/Oct/18
Good find on the full body picture of Fury/Wach. Wach in trainers has a footwear advantage over Fury in boxing shoes. In equal footing you would expect Fury to be the same height as Wach or half a cm taller than Wach . I think they're both around 202 cm. Wach is just calls his barefoot height while Fury calls his height in trainers (and then rounds up a fraction)
Robbe said on 20/Oct/18
@Lao, if you mean this pic, Tyson is not standing straight with Joyce Click Here

Nor with this pic either Click Here

In this pic Tyson is standing tall with 190cm Cunningham. Struggles to look 6'7 there Click Here

We just have to wait for the official weigh in Fury vs Wilder to see the real deal. In the latest events Tyson has been tiptoeing, with footwear advantage.
Gman39 said on 18/Oct/18
Loa take a good look at Fury with Wilder, there are tons of photos and video of them face to face now. Fury is likely in the 6'7 to 6'7.5 range, I think many of us agree on that. Also, I have always believed Klitschko is about 6'5.5. He got a bad wrap on here as a lift wearer, but that was before we all figured out Fury was much shorter than listed. He may have worn lifts at times but, in lieu of the Fury height revelation, many of the Fury-Klit photos make more sense now.
Lao said on 17/Oct/18
fury is much shorter and he needs a downgrade we all need to understand that there is no way he is a 6,7 max is a week 6”6
This is because klitschko says himself he is a 6”5 and in thoose pics it looks like 1/2 inch difference so fury is a week 6”6 and wilder is way taller than him I would say 6”7 for wilder
Mickie said on 16/Oct/18
Lol, Wladimir is a lift wearer though. In the ring, Tyson had him by 2 and change.
Robbe said on 16/Oct/18
These are perhaps the best pics to judge Wlad vs Tyson height difference. We cant see their footwear, but it's possible both men are wearing only socks there.

I think fury needs a major downgrade he is a week 6”6 he looks shorter than 6”6 joe Joyce who would be a strong 6”6. Wilder is way taller than fury
Wilder. 6”7 or strong 6”6
Fury. Week 6”6

Tyson Fury is 6'7 1/2, while Wilder is 6'7.

Here is a picture of Fury and Wach (6'7)

Click Here

Here is a picture of Fury and David Price (6'8)

Click Here

He cannot be taller than 6'8.

What makes him appear to be taller is his arm length - 85" wingspan, which is longer than other HW's his size and also his posture (his shoulders are higher than other HW's his size).
Gman39 said on 14/Oct/18
I think this is pretty accurate. 6'5.5 and 6'7.25. Click Here
Gman39 said on 14/Oct/18
The only photo I ever saw where Fury and Wlad looked 2.25 inches apart was the one out in the grass/stadium where Wlad has a noticeably wider stance and is holding 50 lbs in championship belts lol.
Mickie said on 12/Oct/18
Yeah I think Fury has Wladimir by a more than 2", and has Wilder by a solid inch. Just like Rob has them listed.
Reece said on 12/Oct/18
Fury is no less than 2 inches taller than Wlad in my opinion maybe even a little more.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Mickie: he may have actually been listed 6’9” at one point. I think this is too high tho and can agree that he’s closer to 6’7”. Maybe he’s 6’7.25. But Wilder Needs one as well. He isn’t any taller than Carmelo Anthony. I’m not sure about Klitschko. If it weren’t for him proclaiming that he measures 6’6 in the morning and 6’5 in the evening, I would probably have a hard time pegging him due to the others who are inflated around him. Wlad May genuinely be a solid 6’5 or 196cm at a low as opposed to 6’5.25 although I won’t argue 6’5.25 since he measures 6’6 out of bed

Wlad is a known lift wearer. So him being shorter than his listing wouldn’t surprise me one but.

Actually, I think Wlad needs an upgrade to 6'5.5. Wilder is 6'6.5 and Fury is 6'7.25 - as I see it right now anyway. I never bought into that there was a full 2 inches between Fury and Wlad, I think slightly less than 2 inches is the real difference.
Reece said on 9/Oct/18
Fury in my opinion is a inch taller than Wilder with a good chance of a inch and a half.
Mickie said on 9/Oct/18
Actually Christian, I believe he was listed at 6'8" first. Then 6'7" then 6'7.25" then 6'7.5".

If he's only 6'7" then Wilder and Wladimir near downgrades too.

He edges out Wilder by a cm or two, maybe three, but no where near two inches, i’d Believe 202cm for Fury.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Oct/18
Fury was initially listed 6'7" when he was added here. There was no reason for Rob to upgrade him a half inch, IMO.
Rory said on 8/Oct/18
Often listed 6ft8.75 which I wonder if it's a shoe height and then 6ft7.75 barefoot. That'd explain the 6ft9 listings, just under it in shoes and then claims it.
Mickie said on 5/Oct/18
Both of their shoes look fairly low heeled and normal to me. Neither of their shoes look exceptionally low heeled. Personally at the moment I think there's a solid 2.5 to 3 cm between them, since all that I saw at these press conferences. I will admit there's a case for the difference being only 2 cm. I don't think anything less than that is believable after you see the staredown and also when you consider how Wilder himself calls Fury 6'9".
Robbe said on 4/Oct/18
Fury had surely shoe advantage there. Wilder's shoes were flat all the way, Tyson's shoes had seemingly visible heels.

Wilder (in sneakers) was also slightly taller Than Tyson in his boxing shoes. Im still not buying Fury being 1in taller than Wilder. Not until i see both men barefoot, face to face.

P.S. Fury's tiptoeing in staredowns is really annoying. Wish he could stand still. It would be much easier to judge their height difference.
Tongan7878 said on 3/Oct/18
Easy lying bout height no where near 6ft9
Reece said on 3/Oct/18
I think Fury is at least a inch taller and Wilder isn’t less than 6 foot 6 1/2 imo.
Mickie said on 3/Oct/18
@Robbe and others - you could see each of their footwear at the NY event in the bottom photos. Fury was wearing low cut loafers, they aren't big shoes! Click Here
Robbe said on 3/Oct/18
Once again, Tyson has clearly bigger heels in his dress shoes than Wilder has in his flat shoes. The real height difference is not so big between these men. I wish Tyson could perform these events with flat shoes, like Wilder. But obviously he wants to look bigger than Wilder. So, waiting for the final weigh in..
Gman39 said on 3/Oct/18
In light of the NY presser, it seems there is most likely a 2cm (3/4) height advantage for Fury. Remember, we must take into account that Fury constantly tip-toes during face-offs and my have a slight footwear advantage on Wilder who seems to be wearing Vans type shoes. Also, one should draw their conclusions on the height difference based on watching as much video/pictures as possible. Right now, I say 6'6.5 for Wilder and 6'7.25 for Fury. My opinion may again change, I am looking forward to seeing them both in their socks at the weigh-in!
Robbe said on 3/Oct/18
Btw, Wilder seems to have higher eyelevel than Tyson, i noticed Tyson was looking up, and Wilder down, when they talked to each other Click Here

Fury has though bigger forehead, so they match up very close.
Robbe said on 3/Oct/18
I guess we'll have to waite for the final weigh in to see the real deal. Actually we haven't seen a single good photo/video of these men with equal footwear. Hopefully both men are in socks in the final staredown. Wlad vs Joshua weigh in was quite useless, cause Wlad wore sneakers, and Joshua only socks. Wlad was noticeable taller there, obviously.
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Christian: Tyson may be a full 6’7” but surely not 6’9. 6’7.5 is too tall imho but maybe a solid 6’7. Wilder may be 6’6.25
Mickie said on 2/Oct/18
Rob - we've got Fury and Wilder at the New York event today, both standing at their tallest face to face. You get a perfect view of it at a neutral angle, best shot is at 9:22 Click Here

What do you think the difference is?
Editor Rob
Assuming same footwear there could be 3cm between them, arguably Tyson nearer 6ft 8 if Wilder is 6ft 6.5.
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Christian: Wilder could be as low as 6’6 but prob not under. Melo looked taller but had camera angle. I know they said 6’6.5 but not sure what time of the day Wildee was measured. My guess is he and Melo are similar. Maybe 6’6.25 or 6’6-6’6.25 range
Mickie said on 2/Oct/18
Deontay himself calls Tyson 6'9" Click Here
Gman39 said on 2/Oct/18
Todays press conference height comparison gold at 1:01.00 of the video. Less than 1 inch height difference. Looks to my honest eyes like 1-2cm in Fury's favor. Still, when I freeze the frame at times during this long face off, they look equal in height...

omz said on 2/Oct/18
Wilder is taller than fury and it’s pretty clear
In 2016 when they met in the ring wilder was wearing boxing shoes which were flat and fury wasn’t and fury was taller by a bit but it was pretty similar. In 2018 when they met in the ring fury was wearing flat shoes and wilder wasn’t and wilde looked way taller so logically wilder is taller . And In the 2 press conferences both of them are not wearing boxing shoes and we still see wilder looking taller and fury shorter. We see fury is annoyed so that’s why he stands on his tip toes.
Wilder: 6”7
Fury: strong 6”6
Wilder 6”7.5
Fury: 6”7
No way fury is 6”9 and no way wilder is shorter than him
Robbe said on 2/Oct/18
@Mickie, no, they are very close in heights, just check this video, at 8:00 when Wilder steps on stage. You can barely see the difference when they are side by side. Check also 29.00 and onwards. Its very hard to see which one is taller. Dont forget Fury wears dress shoes, Wilder flat shoes. Click Here
Mickie said on 2/Oct/18
The camera is even closer to Deontae on this angle Click Here
Mickie said on 2/Oct/18
@ Gman - No. It is obvious Fury is roughly an inch taller. At times they can appear about the same height and other times Fury could appear around 2 inches taller. The real difference is about an inch in Fury's favor. I think any honest observer has to see that. Click Here
Gman39 said on 2/Oct/18
Mickie and Movieguy12: It was not possible to split them yesterday. Sometimes Fury seemed slightly taller, sometimes Wilder seemed slightly taller. They are within a .5 inch and the jury is still out as to who is taller.
184guy2 said on 2/Oct/18
Certain not over 1 inch between them :

@movieguy12, i dont think so.

I believe Fury had shoe advatage also, he was wearing dress shoes with 3cm heels. Wilder was wearing some kind of gold colored shoes, to me they looked quite flat. Im not sure though.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18
Wilder's 6'6.25" and Tyson's 6'6.75"
Mickie said on 1/Oct/18
It's completely over, the idea that Fury and Wilder are the same height. You'd have to straight up be in denial to think that now. Fury is roughly an inch taller. Sometimes the difference looks less than that and sometimes more, but in equal footwear and comparable posture it's somewhere between 2 and 3 cm.
Canson said on 1/Oct/18
@184guy: I agree. Wilder was measured 6’6.5 but not sure what time of the day. He looked similar with Melo taking camera into account
Lanky said on 1/Oct/18
I can’t think of another person whose height is more difficult to accurately nail down. Initially I thought he was a weak 6’8”, then after the stairdown with Wilder in Fury’s last fight, I started to think maybe Fury is basically a flat 6’7”, now after the press conference I’m back to thinking he’s closer to 6’8” than 6’7”.
Mickie said on 1/Oct/18
Fury and Wilder just had a press conference. Fury was obviously the taller of the 2 at their press conference today: Click Here

They are not the same height, Fury is taller.

movieguy12 said on 1/Oct/18
At press conference today fury looked taller than wilder. Maybe not 2 inches but a good inch plus.
184guy2 said on 30/Sep/18
Again , Fury looks max half inch taller . If he is 6'7.5 ( which I don't think he is ) than Deontay is 6'7
Gman39 said on 30/Sep/18
Yup, as expected, he looks identical in height to Wilder in the new face off video. Rob, will you downgrade Fury if a preponderance of photographic evidence indicates he is the same height as Wilder?
Robbe said on 30/Sep/18
Yeah, they look very similar in that video Click Here Click Here

No offence folks, but i have posted this pic below over an year ago. Really, Tyson, with his dress shoes isn't much taller than Wilder, with his boxing shoes. This pic was pretty much ignored when i posted it, by some Fury fans, saying "no, Tyson was 2in taller in the ring".

Click Here

So, that pic turned out to be pretty damn accurate. Wilder must be a legit 6'7. Otherwise it doesn't make any sense. If Wilder is under 6'7, so is Tyson and Vitali also.
tim181 said on 28/Sep/18
Fury is 6'7

Dave B said on 20/Sep/18
Yeah weak 6ft 8 for Fury - circa 6ft 7.695 ;-)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Sep/18
Weak 6ft8 for Fury while David Price is a strong 6ft8
Robbe said on 28/Aug/18
So, Tyson was measured 6'7 as amateur. Big question is, has he gained height after that. If Wilder is as listed, looks that Tyson is still the same, 6'7. If you look at the video i posted, Wilder actually looks a bit taller than Tyson, before Tyson starts to "kiss" him. Both men standing relaxed here.

Click Here

Anyway, my guess now:

Fury 201cm
Wilder 200cm
joshjeffords said on 26/Aug/18
Seems as listed has slight edge on deontay in stare down with footwear disad.
6 9 seems laughable id say if anything knock half an inch off both.
Boxers wear shoes and like bballers they measure with them on and often bs it altogether.
The important question is who is the best heavy weight furthermore why not fight joshua first?
Mickie said on 25/Aug/18
Fury was a little taller than Alexander Ustinov (202 cm listed) and a little shorter than David Price (has claimed 6'8" but usually claims 6'9"). Wladimir who called him out on his height claim thought he was about the same height as Wach (who is reportedly 202 cm) other boxers have believed his 6'9" claim (Steve Cunningham claimed he was 6'3" and Fury was 6'9"). I think if Fury was significantly than 202 cm Wladimir would've said so and guys like Steve Cunningham wouldn't have believed the 6'9". I think the 6'8.75" listing he's had recently is his height in shoes. But the stare down with Wilder at a footwear disadvantages makes over 202 cm seem impossible (unless Wilder was pulling a Klitschko, which I wouldn't think probable) thus I think Rob actually has him listed perfectly.
Mickie said on 24/Aug/18
I think the one with Wilder wasn't so much to look taller as to go in for the mock kiss lol. If Tyson was truly height obsessed I don't think he'd stand with such poor posture, but he does pull the tip toe move during face offs at times.
Reece said on 24/Aug/18
It is normal for tall men to tip toe at times.
Wlad could wear lifts to make him look more physically imposing.
Fury is minimum 6-7.5 in my opinion.
Robbe said on 23/Aug/18
What is this tiptoe thing with Fury? Why is he doing it?

With Wlad Click Here

And latest, with Wilder Click Here

Tyson is height obsessed?
movieguy12 said on 22/Aug/18
Why would Wlad wear lifts? I don't know why a man that size wears lifts. However I think it's pretty certain he does on occasion. The most famous example is the Fury Wlad weigh in where Wlad edged out Fury in the stare off. I don't buy Fury as 6'9'' but he's no shorter than 6'7'' minimum and taller than Wlad for certain. The Fury camp also reckon the scales were fixed so that Fury's weight was less than it should be. I'm not sure about this though. Chuck Wepner the 'Real Rocky' claims Wlad is 6'4'' although I don't know if this is the case. Wlad is a big man but mind games were part of his act.
Mickie said on 21/Aug/18
@Viper - Wlad wears lifts to appear taller in faceoffs against opponents, he probably perceived it as a psychological advantage of some sort. That's why he appeared even in height with Fury at the weigh in but looked 6 to 7 cm shorter in the ring. Also why Wladimir at times made David Haye look like he was struggling with 6-0 when he's obviously more 6-1 to 6-2 range.
viper said on 20/Aug/18
Why would Wladimir wear lifts
Robbe said on 20/Aug/18
@Mickie, Wilder is not standing prperly in that picture you posted. He is leaning forward on Tyson, and loosing height there. Difference was not so big in reality. Secondly, Wilder was wearing flat trainers in the newest staredown. They were eye to eye. That would mean Tyson is only about 1cm taller than Wilder. But like you said, we'll see the true difference in the weigh in.

About Wlad, it's true you never know if he's wearing lift's or not. He looks huge with Pianeta in deed. Very possible he has boosted his shoes once again there.
tim181 said on 20/Aug/18
Deontay didn't even wear very thick sneakers Click Here at 4:25
So I reckon Fury with equal shoes is 0.5in taller.
Mickie said on 19/Aug/18
@ Robbe - Wladimir is a known lift wearer. Personally right now I think Pianetta is 6'4", Fury 6'7.5", and Wilder 6'6.5"
Mickie said on 19/Aug/18
I expect we'll be seeing more Fury and Wilder together. With equal footwear: Click Here
Mickie said on 19/Aug/18
Wilder with footwear advantage: Click Here

Fury with footwear advantage: Click Here

The true difference we're going to see when these two face off is about half way between these two photos. Probably about an inch in favor of Fury, just as Rob has it.
Ajax said on 19/Aug/18
Looked exactly the same height as 6ft7 Deontay Wilder in their stare down last night... no way he is even approaching 6ft9
