I wondered if to look bigger maybe they both do it sometimes. Haye mentioned something about Wlad wearing shoulder pads in the bulid to make himself bigger and this was back in 2011.....
Reece said on 4/Jun/20
Rob do you think Vitali could wear lifts as well ?
Editor Rob
These things can run in the family.

Vitali has claimed 200cm as well. Which is just under 6 foot 7.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"

Atually there are whole bunch of people have no clue about height lost during the day. I personally knew a few people who goes by their morning height claim and insist they are not shorter even i measure two different person in the afternoon came out to be half an inch lower than claim height and one of the guy still went forever argue that the measurement is incorrect and not believing of disc compress losing a little height everday this kind of facts. No offence to Mary Ann James, but i think she might have the same thinking as them. So we can't blame their trust issues. To be genuinely logical that Vitali claim 6'7 that is honest but what time did he get the measurement was a small problem, because he only look 3-4cm taller than his baby brother Wlad. I just don't see 1.75" that much between the brothers. Wlad might have measure 6'5 1/2 morning and came a low close to your height indicate Vitali not more than 6'6.75" a low.

@Mary Ann James
What a silly comment. 1. Just because someone claims a height, it oesn't necessarily mean that it's accurate. 2. This is a height discussion/debating website.
Mary Ann James said on 22/Apr/20
If Vitali says he's 6'7", then at 5'6", I'm not going to argue with him! And why are all these guys debating Vitali's height? Kinda silly, don't ya think?
OriginalAnon said on 18/Apr/20
Easily 6'7'' and could be 6'7.25"
Canson said on 16/Feb/20
@Movieguy12: probably both are slightly shorter. Wilder only measured 6’6.5 time of day is questionable. And Vitaly doesn’t have but maybe 1.5 on his brother. But they’re just rounding up at least Wilder is.
movieguy12 said on 16/Feb/20
Didn't Deontay Wilder go back to back with Vitali for a good natured height match up a few yrs back. I remember they looked exactly the same height. So either both are about 6'7'' which I believe or they are both slightly shorter.
Canson said on 11/Aug/19
@Junior: Conan is only about 6’3 1/4” though. He was never as tall as you think (6’3 3/4). A guy that size would look 6’4” and Conan doesn’t look 6’4 with the legit 6’4” guys on his show. Tom Selleck even looked taller than him at 6’3.5 but that may have been footwear. Either way it would not surprise me if Conan were always a strong 6’3 or best case 6’3.5. As for Bo 6’5.25 or 6’5 3/8 is completely possible for him and Holmes 6’4 3/8 perhaps same with MCW but even MCW May be 6’4.25 or less. A lot of players are 3/4” less than their listing as we saw with Danny Green. He’s 6’4.5 and measured 6’5.25 the next year in the AM. He may not lose 3/4” from then but maybe 5/8 or a little less. No 1/8” increments so green may have just been 6’5.06 or something and been rounded up and just be around 6’4.5 at a low. Plus if it’s not a full hour out of bed which it appears it may not be then the loss may just be 1/4” from waking and 1/2” thereafter. If I measure in the first 20 or 30 it’s only about 1/4” for me otherwise it’s around 3/8” after the first hour
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/19
Wlad is never 2" shorter than Vitali. Max is 4cm between the boxers brothers.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/Jul/19
@Dream @Canson You guys can have Bo at 6'5 1/4-3/8 but 5'10 1/2 Josh Hamilton will be down at 5'9 3/4, Conan O'Brien 6'3 1/4, Pete Holmes 6'4 1/4, 6'5-6'5 1/4 Trevor Moore become 6'4 1/2, 6'4 Nick Thune become 6'3 1/4, 5'11 3/4 Ryan Hansen met by editor Rob becomes 5'11, Owen Benjamin 6'5 1/2 max, Thomas F. Wilson 6'1 1/2 current height. Vitali Klitschko 6'6 1/4, Last one is Bo's best friend 6'4 3/4 Michael Carter William become a flat 6'4. This is all the fact. So maybe they're all just listed too high.
Mickie said on 7/Jul/19
I think there's a much stronger case to be made for 199 - 200 cm than 201 or 198.
Dream said on 20/Jun/19
@Canson and @Junior

Truthfully, I find it difficult for Bo to be the full 6’6” or over. I do agree he would be at least 6’6” out of bed. At the same time, Bo has pulled off looking 6’5 1/2”. 6’5 1/4” is a low for Burnham, but he could also be 6’5 3/8”.
Canson said on 18/Jun/19
@Junior: it’s possible he’s under 6’5 1/2. I wouldn’t say no chance especially if he claimed 6’5”
Boxing fan 07 said on 18/Jun/19
Judging by Vitali and Lewis’s fight. I think Vitali is 6’6”. He only looks 1.5 inches taller than Lewis. Maybe not even that.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jun/19
I don't know what to say.. Bo isn't under 6'5 1/2 for a hundred percentage its likely a bit more than under. Vitali is comfirm a weak 6'7, He can be measure that earlier the day than after.
Dream said on 14/Jun/19
Rob, this is a strange comparison.


Vital Klitschko with Kumail Nanjiani -- Click Here

Bo Burnham with Kumail Najiani -- Click Here


Why does Bo look extremely close in height with Vitali, in comparison with Kumail? I'm taking into account Bo's looser posture and being further away from the camera, with equal footwear. Kumail is slightly leaning onto Vitali.

Is Vitali get 6'6 3/4" and Bo Burnham 6'5 3/8" possible, Rob?
Lanky said on 5/May/19
With ~6’4.5” former adversary Lennox Lewis today: Click Here
Reece said on 20/Apr/19
Vitali was considerably shorter than Valuev by about 4 inches who could be 6 foot 11 range.
I didn’t see that big of a difference between a Lewis and Vitali in the ring.
Canson said on 20/Apr/19
@Crane: agreed and that is exactly how I peg both guys. Vitaly 6’6,75 Wilder 6’6” Wlad 6’5.25 like Rob lists him all three at their lows
Daniel reynolds said on 19/Apr/19
Vitali klitscko would of been ft6,11 against lennox lewis. Lennox was a legit ft6,5. But you could see the height comparison. Anyone that thinks vitali was ft6,7 is nuts. I watched that fight not since 2003 though. Vitali just under ft7,0. Everyone saying 2 metres. Look at the height comparison between lennox and vitali and all will know at least 6 inches. I haven,t watched that fight sonce 2003. But i would know vitali was ft6,11 no question needed. I have watched other vitali fights but for me he was ft6,11. I don,t care what anyone says or trys to prove. I know fact.!!
mohammad said on 16/Apr/19
2000.00 Millimeters tall .
JD1996 said on 1/Apr/19
Vitali does not need a downgrade he's at least 2 metres tall 6'7" is a good listing for him
Crane said on 18/Mar/19
@184guy2 Vitali is taller than Wilder.

Vitali is a legit 200 cm tall guy, while Wilder is 6'6 or 198 cm.
184guy2 said on 4/Jan/19
Vitali is as tall as Wilder
He needs a slightly downgrade
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
Believe me , he's real height is 2,000 millimeters .
JD1996 said on 18/Dec/18
Vitali is probably right around what canson said at most I think 6'7" but probably 6'6.75"-6'6.875" zone at his low any guy that height would just say 6'7" though.
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
I see about 4cm between the two brothers. He’s a 200 cm guy (6’6.75 at a low 6’7.5 or so out of bed) and Wlad 6’5.25/6’6” out of bed.
carletto said on 23/Oct/18
Carlo Alberto di Savoia (1798-1849), king of sardinia (in english "Charles Albert of Sardinia") was 2,03 (sometimes I read 2,04-2.05).
He was the great great grandfather of Amedeo di Savoia-Aosta (1898-1942),general officer of italian army (He was 1,98).
Lanky said on 18/Oct/18
Sharif, it might just be the camera angle but when I watched that, my immediate impression was that Vitali was taller. Of course, we don’t know whether the French kid is actually 6’7” though.
Sharif Amiri said on 14/Sep/18
He says 2m next to this listed 6ft7 prospect.

200 cm tall
Tunman said on 22/Jun/18
Yeah,in fact very possibly 3cm max.I know for a thing that Vitali had 201 and 202 listings and Wladimir 198 and 199.Of course we can only speculate about the method and time but knowing the close relationship between them I wouldn't be surprised if they were measured together.Anyways I think Vitali could dip a little under 6'7 like 200cm while Wlad is more like 6'5.5 or 197.I think his 6'5 claim is definitely a rounding downClick Here:
If Tyson Fury is 6'7.5"I see 2"difference but no more.Maybe a slight upgrade for Wlad ,Rob?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/18
@Reece Not over 4cm between this two brother.
Reece said on 17/May/18
It might even be less than 1.75 inch difference between Wlad and Vitali.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/May/18
There is no way 2" or even 4.4cm between the Klitschko brothers.

Wladimir legit 196cm
Vitali legit 200cm
zem said on 12/Apr/18
just under 6"7 evening height guaranteed! Over 6'7 morning height. Look at him with 6'3 briggs and 6'9 odom. Just a smidge shy of 6'7
Bazza said on 4/Mar/18
I recently watched the Lewis - klit fight again and it is a clear 2 inch difference on the nose in Vitali's favour.if we are to go with lewis being a hair under 6'5 then that makes vitali just shy of 6'7 but i would be happy to give him the full 6'7. He is certainly not more though
Reece said on 30/Jan/18
I would not Rule out the full 201cm for Vitali. Less than a hair under 6 foot 7 would surprise me.
even said on 25/Jan/18
exactly 2,000 mm , no more , no less , period !
Canson said on 8/Jan/18
@EM: I’d prob go anywhere 196-196.2 for Wlad and 199.5-200 for Vitali
EM said on 7/Jan/18
I think he's 1.5" taller than his brother.
Michael said on 13/Dec/17
6'6" or 6'7" he's a tall guy. Anyone that's 6'6" is already a giant.
CreepX said on 7/Dec/17
VItali seems to be 6'6 3/4'. Doesnt look 2 full inch taller than Wlad, but more than 1.

196.25 vs 199.75 looks perfect between the two of them.
Monty said on 28/Nov/17
Solid 6'7 - he towered over Briggs in the ring who is an easy 6'3/6'3.5
Canson said on 18/Nov/17
@Ice: so because you like the guy he has to be 6’7”? You’re a fanboy
Canson said on 12/Nov/17
Vitali has claimed both 6’6 and 6’7”. My guess is somewhere between. Wlad has claimed 6’5 evening 6’6” morning so he likely is closer to 6’5”. A guy with a long torso can easily lose a full inch at that height. Even if not a full inch he could be 6’6 out of bed 6’5.25 at his lowest which is still closer to 6’5” than 6’6” and a more than reasonable and accurate claim
Reece said on 6/Nov/17
@ICE. Remember the Sanders and Lewis and Chisora fights. What fights they were. Vitali has never been down in pro boxing in his career
Ice said on 6/Nov/17
Vitali was devastating in his prime . Truly unbeatable . solid 6'7
Canson said on 27/Sep/17
@Reece: vitali also said he's 6'7" and Wlad is 6'6". Then he went on to say he's 6'6" himself. I think his 6'6" is a strong very strong one or he's a weak 6'7". He has 1.5" on Wlad
Reece said on 26/Sep/17
Vitali has claimed 6-7 also though. Wlad said Vitali Is 6-6. But it's clear in pictures he looks 6 foot 7
will k said on 25/Sep/17
Vitali already stated in an interview before his match with Chisora that he is 6'6". When boxers tell you their height flat out in interviews, there shouldnt be any controversy. Im looking at this thread and seeing people saying 6'7, some saying 6'8. the guy said 6'6 so 6'6 it is
dd said on 7/Sep/17
No more than 6'7

not even a 1cm
dd said on 7/Sep/17
No more than 6'7
Reece said on 24/Aug/17
@Junior. Lamar has a footwear advantage of 0.75 inch. He is in basketball shoes 1.25 inch and Vitali flats 0.5 inch. It's no more than 2 inches with the footwear advantage. 200cm is th minimum but I think he is more 201-202cm
Junior said on 24/Aug/17
He don't look over 6'6.75" with 6'9 lamar odom.
Reece said on 17/Aug/17
@Logan. 6-8 looks too much. 6-7 is more likely and 6-7 1/2 tops. Easily be 6-8 in shoes

200 cm is the correct answer

@Bill, look at their legs. Ridiculous. And both are world-class athletes,what's it like for similarly tall people with average fitness? Being over 6'5, buff and proportional is practically impossible.

Vitali is 202cm.Click Here. he doesnt look more than 2 inches shorter. even with a footwear disadvantage. flat boxing shoes 0.5 to basketball shoes 1.25 inches.

I met Vitali in London I am 6ft 4 and he makes me look small I would definitely say he is 6ft 7 or even over that
Derek said on 2/May/17
been a fan of the Kiltschkos for years. Vitali makes proper 6-3 and 6-4 look small. i think Vitali is 202cm.
shiva 181 cms said on 30/Apr/17
I'd say wlad is 6'5.5 and vitali is 6'7.25

i am suprised you though Vitali was 6.6.5. i thought he was a strong 6-7. well u met him so i guess u would have a better idea than me.
Mark said on 28/Apr/17
Vitali looked around 6"6.5 to me other night at Wembley Arena around 9pm. Big guy. Vlad looked around 6"5 mark.

Vitali is 6-7.5 and Wlad is 6-6.look at pictures of Vitali with Lamar Odam to show how massive he is.
Fred said on 25/Mar/17
Rob? who do you think is taller,Vitali Kiltschko or Tyson Fury and by how much.
Bizzare Oaks said on 23/Mar/17
Vitali 6-7 under is hard to believe. Vitali looked half a inch shorter than Ustinov who he used to promote who is 6-7.5.
Reece said on 19/Mar/17
Rob,could u please start a page for David Price he is listed at 6-8 but looks more 6-9. He claims 6-9 and that seems more accurate.
boxing fan said on 11/Mar/17
Vitali is 6-7 to 6-7.5. makes legit 6-3 and 6-4 look shorter. Wlad looks a inch and half shorter. i would put Wlad at 6-6 and Vitali at 6-7.5. i would say 6-5.5 and 6-7 are possible but no under.
Reece said on 4/Mar/17
Rob. what is your prediction for Vitali Height in the Morning and Mid day and Night. i still dont understand how u have Fury,Wilder and Vitali at 6,7. Fury is taller than both. if you see the Kiltschko Fight after Fury wins he calls Wlad a great champ or the Face off first press confrence the only one Wlad did not wear lifts and Fury looks a good bit taller than Wlad,looks the full 3 inches taller for sure. Vitali and Wilder look close in Height i think both are 6,7.Fury is at least 6,8.5
Editor Rob: Reece, there's a chance Vitali could fall under 6ft 7 at night, like a 6ft 6.5 range
Guesser said on 28/Feb/17
Vitali looked 6,7.5 in the RING with 6,5 Lennox Lewis. he looked 2-2.5 inches taller. Vitali is huge. Lamar Odam is listed 6,10 but likely 6,9 barefoot. Vitali looked 2-2.5 inches shorter in a picture but Lamar had footwear edge. i make Vitali 6,7-6,7.5 and Lamar 6,9 on the dot.

Height Predictions on the following heavyweights
V Kiltschko-6,7.5 202cm.6,7 possible. under 6,6.5 is a joke
W Kiltschko- 6,6-198cm. 6,5.5 and 65.75 possible too. under 6,5 is a joke
D Haye- 6,2 188cm-187cm possible too. under 187cm is a joke
D Wilder- 6,7 201cm. 200cm possible. under 6,6.5 is a joke
T Fury 6,9 206cm.people like to say Fury is 6,7 or 6,6.5 but this is just false. Fury could be 6,8.5 too.under 6,8 a joke
M Ali-6,3 191cm. under 6,2 a joke
G Foreman 6,4 193cm-6,3.5 is possible too. under 6,3 a joke
L Holmes 6,4 193cm-6,3.5 is possible too. under 6,3 a joke
Bill said on 15/Feb/17
How come u have both V Kiltschko and Fury are 6,7? Fury looks taller next to Wladimir when he is not wearing Lifts than Vitali does.i believe Vitali is 6,7 but i think 6,8 is more like the Right Height for Fury. Fury was taller than a legit 6,7 Wilder by a 1.5 inches but he had a 0.5 inch edge Fury was wearing normal shoes and Wilder boxing shoes. Fury is a inch taller than Wilder with the same footwear.
Rob said on 23/Jan/17
could you make a page for deontay Wilder?
Reece said on 14/Jan/17
Vitali looks 2.5 inches taller than legit 6,4.5 Lennox Lewis. i think he is 6,7 on the dot. no shorter than 6,6.5.
Josh Jeffords said on 13/Jan/17
Yep always over bill fighters an inch or two.
In one interview he claimed the brit fury barely taller.

Vitali looks to be 6'5.5 - 6'6
Canson said on 23/Jun/16
@Aswin: the problem with this site is people always say well "so and so looked such and such because he or she is 6'2" or "so and so looks this because he's an inch taller and he dwarfs people". Many of the heights listed here are off not to mention time of the day etc. I can't see Lennox as a legit 6'5. He looked as tall as Charles Barkley in pics and Barkley reliably isn't even 6'5. I have 6'2 and a 6'3 friend who met him that both said he looked 6'4 in person and is around the same height as I am. Lewis looks very tall as in 193 or maybe 194 but that's it. I'd go with the latter about 6'4 1/2. Wlad himself has said he's 6'6 in the morning and 6'5 at night. He chooses to claim 6'5 but in reality is prob more like 6'5.25-6'5.5 which adds up because of his brother measured 6'7 he looks 1.5" shorter. Again it could be timing. Vitali may drop to 6'6.75 in the evening potentially or maybe Wlad only gets to 6'5 3/8 or so. Either way he isn't 6'6 he'd say so if he were
Aswin Kini MK said on 26/May/16
@Canson: Yup mate, we can all agree on Vitali being 6 foot 7 or a tab bit more or less. However, I would slightly disagree with your statement on Lennox's height. Lennox, at no point in his career, looked less than 6 foot 4.5 -5. He towered 4inches over 6 foot 1 Holyfield, 3.5 to 4 inches over 6 foot1ish Tommy Morrison, was 2 inches taller than 6 foot 3 Bothas and only 2 inches shorter than 6 foot 7 Vitali and Michael Grant.

If he was really 6 foot 4 (As he was listed in the Olympics), I am sure Rob would have to downgrade almost every other opponent by 1 inches, that would make Vitali only 6 foot 6 (Mind you Vitali has been measured with legitimate 6 foot 9+ NBA players and has never looked more than 2 inches shorter).

I would go with Rob's measurement of 6 foot 4.75 for Lennox, he looked the most strongest candidate for a solid 6 foot 5. Wladmir, on the other hand, is an enigma, he states 6 foot 5 as his height but towers every other 6 foot 5 boxer on the planet :( Dude really needs to stop understating his height.

Here is a pic of Wladmir with the now-5foot 9.5 Arnold. (Look at this and tell me if you see 6 foot 5 or 6 foot 6).

Canson said on 25/May/16
@Aswim Kini MK: you're correct about Vitali. He's 6'7". Wlad is 6'5 however. He has said many a times he wakes up at 6'6 and is 6'5 by evening. His prerogative to claim his afternoon/evening height. In reality he's prob an avg 6'5 1/4-1/2 guy where Vitali is 6'6.75-6'7 as there a 1.5" diff or so. You're making Wlad taller because the other guys are not as tall as they claim. Lewis btw is 6'4. He's at most 6'4.5 not 6'5 or almost 6'5. He even has referred to himself as 6'4 before.
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/16
@Aswin, if you really look at Wlad with people like Ivo Karlovic, doesn't look 6'6 or more.
While 6'5 flat seems too low something like 6'5.25-.5 is reasonable for him, though at times can look a proper 6'6.
Aswin Kini MK said on 23/May/16
Hi folks, just thought of clarifying a few things here. Vitali and Wladmir are both tall boxers. However, they often like to understate their heights to get a mental advantage in the ring. It's a part of their tactic. 1) Understate your height by 1-1.5 inches. Let your opponent assume you are one of the 6 foot 3 inch boxers who has overbilled their height to 6 foot 5. 2) Come to the weigh-in wearing lifts (2-3 inches) and stare down at their opponent (Who by now is freaked out by the height difference. He will be mostly think, 6 foot 5, no freaking way, this due seems more like 6 foot 8). 3) Go to the ring and jab the opponent to death.

To put it shortly, Wladmir is not 6 foot 5. He is clearly taller than a lot of solid 6 foot 5 footers. He is somewhere between 6 foot 5.75 to 6 foot 6 1/8. With regards to Vitali, I think Rob has his height spot on. A solid 2 inches over 6 foot 5, Lennox Lewis and towering 4-5 inches over 6 foot 2+ boxers. The max I can give Vitali is 6 foot 7.5 as he seems to stand with very good posture. But he is definitely 1-1.5 inches taller than Wladmir who is no lesser than 6 foot 5.5 himself.
movieguy said on 26/Apr/16
My guess is the same as that of poster Ice, I'd put him and Fury at pretty much the same height. Still mystified by the Wlad Tyson weigh in where Wlad looked to edge to have the edge on Fury in height. Why would a guy as big as Wlad wear lifts if that is what happened.
Ice said on 3/Apr/16
His height is very similar to Tysons .. Tyson just gets billed as 6'9 , but doesnt edge out legit 6'7 guys like Vitali or Mariusz Wach .
Ice said on 3/Apr/16
Nowhere under the full 6'7 .
Canson said on 3/Feb/16
At the end of the day both of the brothers look exactly what Rob has them. Wlad wakes at 6'6 and is 6'5 at night (is in 6'5 range even at the top for more of the day than he is 6'6). he'd be a 6'5 and a little change but closer to 6'5 than 6'6 if he claims it. He looks 1.5" shorter roughly which puts Wlad around 6'5.25-.5 (probably 6'5 3/8 in the afternoon) and Vitaly at a certified 6'7 or at worst a weak 6'7 (like 6'6.75 maybe 6'6 7/8).
movieguy said on 17/Jan/16
Just read an old interview in which Vitali says that he is 6'7''. I see no reason to doubt this, Vitali seems a matter of fact guy. Wlad slightly shorter. The listed height is correct on Vitali I believe.

He is exactly an inch and a half taller than Wlad. I'd say a weak 6'7 esp at his lowest. midday/early afternoon 6'5 3/8-1/2 for Wlad and 6'7 around that time for him. 6'6.5-.75 at his lowest in evening
Duhon said on 15/Oct/15
I believe Lamar Odom is 6'9" barefoot and looks it next to Vitali.
SportsHeight said on 13/Oct/15
Rob, how tall do you think Lamar Odom is? He's listed at 6'10", but we all know how NBA height listings can be exaggerated. Looks in the mid-6'8" range to me next to Klitschko.

[Editor Rob: in that photo I think maybe because their eyelevels are slightly different it could look less than it is. There's at least a couple of inches there.]

Odom's sneakers also give more than Vitali's boxing shoes. I wouldn't be surprised if barefoot Odom were less than a full inch taller than Klitschko.

Rob,how tall is Yanoukovitch if Vitali is 6'7? maybe around 6'1.
Hmmm,the more I look, the more I think Putin is like 5'5 or 5'5.5 tops, he definitely looked about 7.5-8 in shorter than Yanoukovitch.

Haye and wladimir klitschko.

Quite clearly, hayes head reaches past wladimir's eyeline in most pictures. I don't believe wladimir has a particularly large head. Haye would be between 4 - 4.5 inches shorter then wladimir.

Haye him is about 0.5 inchs taller then froch, thus haye is about 6'0.5 and wladimir is max 6'5 (the height he states himself at)

His brother is 1 inch taller then him, thus is really 6'6 as his brother states.

Froch 6'0
haye 6'0.5 - 6'0.75
vitali 6'6

I've never really thought much of Vlad's physique but I've got to say he looks damn good here Click Here Off season I think he must gain weight and not be so cut as he is when he is preparing for a fight and looks much better for it. He looks similar frame to Joe Manganiello here, only I suspect he's 250-260 pounds off season and heavier and a bit taller than Joe. Still wondering why Rob hasn't put up a page for him yet has one for Vitali and Haye. I'd go with 6'6" flat.

I can't see Haye at anything over 6'2, he can look 6'1.5 at times.

Haye looked the same height as Eric Bristow and Rob saw him and said he was 6'2" range. 6'2" is about right for Haye; I agree at times he can look more 6'1" but seeing him on I'm a Celebrity next to 5'5.5" Dec snd 5'8" Ant and Bristow I don't think he's under 6'2". But he aint 6'3"..

Yeah I agree Wlad looks a legit 6'6" guy but I think he is actually around 2 inches shorter than his brother.
kk55 said on 11/Nov/12
Wlad fought Mariusz Wach last night. First opponent to be taller - 202 cm. There was no more than 4 cm difference in height. I wonder why he claimed 6'5" earlier. No way he is shorter than 6'6". Perhaps he always knew his height in cm and was not quite sure what is it in inches. Also check out his photos with Tony Thompson (legit 6'5") Wlad always looks and ich taller.
thetruth said on 13/Oct/12
I've read the interview in which 6'5'' Chuck Wepner states he is an inch taller than Wlad. Strange cause Wlad looks massive at least 6'6'' although he himself claims 6'5''. When Vitali fought Lennox Lewis he did look a good 2 inches taller than 6'5'' Lennox. Wlad is a little shorter than his elder brother although more muscular by far.
Shaun said on 29/Sep/12
Rob if you were to list David Haye what would you guess? One thing's for sure he isn't 6 ft 3. He looks 4 inches shorter than Wlad who claims to be 6 ft 5 barefoot. But if Haye is 6 ft 1 Craig David needs at least a 2 inch downgrade. Haye had like 4 inches on him I think. Height can be a strange thing as I doubt Craig David is under 5'10".
[Editor Rob: I think near 6ft 2 range is likely for him, he raises his eyes sometimes and probably creates impression of being taller.]

If you were to start a page on Wladimir Klitschko Rob I'd probably go with 196cm or 197cm. If you look on the tube Wladimir Klitschko BBC interview he claims 6-5. Personally I think he looks 6'6" ish but he is about 2 inches shorter than his brother.
Shaun said on 25/Aug/12
If Wladimir Klitschko is 6'4" David Hay is struggling with a flat 6'!!! Klitschko looks 6 ft 6 but I think his claim of 6 ft 5 is the truth. Vitali can look 6'7.5"-6'8" a lot but he has about 2 inches on his brother. They're 6'7" and 6'5" as they state I think.
Fredrik said on 26/Jul/12
I met both brothers in 2002 and I can say for sure that comments putting Wlad at 6'5 or lower are totally off the mark.
If I were to make an estimation I'd say he's 199 cm (6'6,5).
Vitali is clearly on the north side of 200 cm (6'7). Indeed, earlier in his career German ring announcers put him at "zwo meter zwo" (202 cm / 6'7,5) which to me seems a very plausible height for big brother Klitschko.
ed said on 24/Jul/12
Produce, Becker was around 6'2 as of 2005. I got his autograph in Bremen and I am roughly 6'1.5 in shoes and he was a hair taller. I could see Vitali as 6'5 and change and Wlad as 6'4.
Produce said on 16/Jun/12
Joe frazier never was 5 11.5. He was more like 5-9 as Foreman said. Tyson could be right with saying hes 5-10! Wladimir only 6-4? I actually found that next to his shorter opponents there most was MORE difference in height as reported. so if hes only 6-4, than i dont want to know how short Chris Byrd , Mormeck, etc are. Bu if he says hes only 6-5 i cant imagine hes taller because The Klitschkos have much marketing and imageactivities. Next to Boris Becker, who was 6-2, he also looks more like 6-4: Click Here
Cranberries said on 16/Jun/12
I think the evidence I just posted indicates that Vitali is not quite 6'7". I would say 6'6" to be precise given Wladamir's more realistic height of 6'5". Both could be a fraction of an inch lower, even.

Any other opinions?

Guys, listen I have a friend that worked with him and his brother on their "McFit" commercials. He has a picture with both of them and he is 6-1 and has a solid build at around 200 lbs. Vitali is clearly 6-7 inches taller and wladimir is significatly taller as well. I tried to post the pictures but they didnt work. I believe that the heights are correct for each...I do believe though that Haye was only 6'2.5" and rounded up to try to get closer to wladimirs height. The other thing I noticed about Vitali in the pictures with my friend is that nhe is deceptivly broad. On tv he looks tall and a lot more slender than a guy like Shannon Briggs or Danny williams. He is very broad and looks his weight at 250lbs.

VITALI--- 6'7 is the MOST id give HIM 6'8 is a JOKE
WLAD----- 6'5.5 is the most id give HIM ANYTHING BIGGER IS A JOKE.IN A SKY SPORTS interview and numerous other interview he has stated he's 6'5. STANDING next to his brother he alwaye looks 1 inch or so smaller.
DAVID HAYE--- 6'1/6'2 HE looked 4 or 5 inches shorter than WLAD. Standing next to CARL FROCH who's 6FT/6'1 HE ONLY looks and inch taller. Further proof when standing next to JOE CALZAGHE who's 5'11.5 there's only a 2 inch difference. AND after seeing pictures of him next to FOOTBALLER RIO FERDINAND who's 6'3 HE looks an inch smaller.
filmfan said on 26/Aug/11
There isn't too much differnce between the two brothers having seen them recently on Sky. Probably only an inch in Vitali's favour. Wlad is more muscular and athletic but maybe not as tough as Vitali. Vitali 6'7'' possibly 6'8''. Wlad 6'6'' maybe 6'7''. Brilliant fighters although perhaps not always as aggressive as the American heavyweights of old. Hence some of the criticism of their 'boring' style. Unfair I think as they are fighting to their strengths. You can't blame them for being bigger and more talented than their opponents.
Scott said on 18/Aug/11
Wladimir looks approx 2.5 - 3 inches shorter than Tyson Fury: Click Here is 6'9. I'd say that most of the Heavyweight heights are in order, give or take less than an inch?
Mike said on 16/Aug/11
At around 2:08 you can clearly see that Wlad is taller than Thompson, and the same height difference is discernable in the "stare down" photos that were taken before the fight. As I mentioned below, it is very difficult to judge fighters' heights while they are competing, because they are continually bouncing around, bobbing, weaving, ducking, etc. If one fighter bobs while the other weaves, a height disparity will ostensibly increase or decrease, and in some cases a fighter who is actually a couple of inches shorter than their opponent will appear to be the taller of the two.

I don't think Wlad was wrong when he claimed 6'5" multiple times. He doesn't look any taller than Tony Thompson in their fight, who's listed as 6'5". I've also read that Klitschko wears a size 14 shoe; expectable for someone 6'5" tall.

Mike said on 14/Jul/11
Audley Harrison has one of the longest reaches in boxing and he is heavier than both Klitsckos, so this might have made him look bigger compared to Haye than Wlad did. However, I don't think that Harrison is taller than Wlad, and if he is, he certanly isn't "substantially" taller.

You can do a quick google search and find pics of Audley with Lennox Lewis, who is listed at 6'4.75" on here. Harrison looks about an inch taller.
Scott said on 13/Jul/11
I think 6'6.5" & 6'3 were the listed heights, tbf.

I was more highlighting that when Klitshcko took on 6'1 Eddie Chambers the difference looked GIGANTIC ... watching Haye vs Klitscko, it just looked like 2 big guys, one a bit bigger than the other.

I'm guessing Chambers may not be a genuine 6'1?

Also - as I mentioned - Audley Harrison looked SUBSTANTIALLY bigger in the ring and weigh ins vs Haye than Klitschko did.

Yet 'officially' Harrison is 1 & 1/2 inches SHORTER than Wladimir :(

Clearly, Audley is obviously actually taller.

Ultimately, at this weight level height is irrelevant in the ring - otherwise young Brit Tyson Fury (6'9) would be champ.

But it is difficult to know what the genuine 'tale of the tape' is!
Mathew said on 13/Jul/11
Mike says on 12/Jul/11
Height differences are always less noticable during boxing matches because the fighters will are constantly leaning back, bending down, etc.
Wlad has towered over Haye in almost all their photos together; if Haye is 6'3" than Wlad is 6'6" at shortest.

Yeah, and I'd even go so far as to say if Haye is 6'3" than Wlad is 6'6.5" at the shortest. The difference seemed like 3.5" minnimum to me.

During the 'Big Fight' Haye looked a lot closer in height to Klitschko than I anticipated from the press conferences.

He certainly wasn't dwarfed and there only seemed 2-3 inches difference MAX as opposed to when Wlad took on 6'2 Peters & 6'1 Chambers.

Haye, bizarrely seemed 2 or 3"s taller than these guys?

Audley Harrison also seemed MUCH bigger in the ring than Wladimir.

My conclusion is that heavyweight heights are all over the shop.

I think Haye actually is 6'3 though.

I have no problem with Wlad being 6'5 1/2, but he said on German TV he's 196cm (6'5.2") and I see no reason to doubt that. One thing is for sure, David Haye is only 6'3" if Wladimir is 6'7", which he isn't.
Mike said on 5/Jul/11
Vegas----I never said that Harrison and Haye are the same height. I'm simply showing that Harrison does not have the massive height advantage over Haye that your pictures suggest.
Mike said on 5/Jul/11

Lots of boxers have disportionately long or short reaches for their height. Harrison has a longer reach than 7'0" Valuev, but Valuev is obviously much taller. My father is 6'1.5" but he has an 82 inch reach----longer than the reachs of Haye and Klitschko. Reach and height are not the same thing.

How do you explain the pictures I posted? Wlad and Haye have never looked that close in height.

I don't know what's wrong with Wladimir being 6'5", he looks a clean 2 inches shorter than his brother most of the time. Sometimes they are close in height but that's probably due to footwear.

Rob, what you estimate for Wladimir Klitschko. I'd say at least 6'6'. Anything under that is hard for me to buy.
[Editor Rob: if I knew what he said in metric...maybe there's a chance he converted wrongly and meant six and a half feet.]


Wladimir claimed to be 196cm on German TV and that Hayden is 158cm (which is 5'0" in reality).
They showed a video of Mike Tyson before the fight on "RTL boxen" where he explains how David Haye has to overcome the height difference between him and Klitschko. Tyson said David Haye is 6'1". It's hard to understand with the German voice-over, but you can hear it on 0:30.

Audley Harrison is NOT taller than Wlad. I once saw a picture of them together and Wlad looked to be about 1.5 inch taller.

Wlad ouclassed Haye, who seemed completely intimidated from the opening bell. Backed away throught the fight. Size difference obvious although Wlad was crouching a little. Vitali 6'7'' to 6'8'', Wlad 6'6'' to 6'7''. Don't see anyone beating either of them for a while.
Big T said on 3/Jul/11
I find Haye a real enigma. He towers over near 6-foot guys yet doesn't look 6'3" at all next to bigger guys. Given his impressive physique I don't see how he can only weigh 96kg either, although boxers generally are always surprisingly light to me. Wladimir looks like a colossus but rugby players his height are generally heavier, even ones that look like beanpoles by comparison

Interviewer: "You are significantly taller than him"
...later in the conversation
Wlad: "I'm 6-5"

David Haye is a far cry from 6'3"; 6'3" with his build would make him heavier than he is, and he's about 220 lbs.

Haye - 6'1.5" max (looks much smaller than Wlad and Audley, WEARS TENNIS/RUNNING SHOES WHICH HAVE 1.2+ inch heel, same height as 6'1" Carl Froch)
Wladamir - 6'5.5" max (looks shorter than 6'5.5" Audley, claims 6'5")
Vitali - 6'7" max (bad posture, doesn't always look taller than Wlad, REACH IS ONLY 6'8")

No way is David 6ft 1. I think David is definelty 6ft 3 on the button now after seeig latest weigh in. All the papers and tv documentaies are saying Wladmir is 6ft 6 now so I really don't know why he said he was 6ft 5 on a bbc interview a couple months back.
Mathew said on 30/Jun/11
Vitali: 201
Lewis: 195
Haye: 185 - 6'3" claim is ridiculous.

Still not sure about Wlad.

wladimir is looking doown that makes him a bit shorter scott i still see 4 difference between them
adz said on 29/Jun/11
I reckon Vitali is 6ft 7 or taller, Wladmir 6ft 6, Lennox Lewis 6ft 5 and Haye is 6ft 3. Dont know why Wladmir says he 6ft 5 hes at the very least 6ft 5.5
Scott said on 28/Jun/11
At yesterday's press conference the height difference between Haye & Klitschko seemed a lot less noticeable: Click Here

I'm beginning to wonder if this is something to do with Wladimir wearing big dress shoes vs Haye's trainers to the previous press conference?

Or maybe as Haye was pumped up so he decided to stand tall rather than slouch as he normally does?

I didn't notice the footwear ... but Haye normally wears paper thin flip flops to the final press conference and Klitschko did make reference to Haye wearing flip flops.


Surely Klitschko doesn't need to wear big shoes?!?

ALTHOUGH ... Haye did accuse him of being a fraud and wearing shoulder pads in his dressing gown into the ring to look broader than he is. Maybe he wears lifts too for a psychological advantage at press conferences?!?

wladimir was listed 200 cm in his beginn of his career he claims 198 cm and i have no doubt that he is that tall vegas.
Vitali is 202 cm
Wladimir 198 cm
Lennox lewis 196 cm
david Haye 188 cm
Vegas said on 27/Jun/11
well big94cm you better get onto the american networks and don king promotions because they list him 6'6, better let them know they are downgrading him by approx an inch ;) 38secs Click Here

sticking with 197cm, his brother wasn't that much taller than ~6'5 lennox lewis
Dan said on 26/Jun/11
From watching and reading interviews, fights etc over the past few year of Wlad, I have absolutely no doubt that he is at least 6' 7.

He has at least 1" on 6'6 Ray Austin here: Click Here
He has at least 2" on 6'5 Tony Thompson here: Click Here
He has at least 1" on 6'6.5 Jameel McCline here: Click Here

Yet for some reason, he is listed some places as 6' 5 and claims (on several occasions) to being 'only' this tall.

Its my predication that he is apprehentious about his height advantage as it pertains to being a great heavyweight, what i mean by this is that he is conscious that all the things that make a boxer great, athleticism, ring intelligence, skills etc are overshadowed by the substantial height and reach advantage he brings into almost every bout and thus downplays this. It also might have a psychological consequences when he meets his opponents for the first time and they realize they are the 'smaller guy'.

As for Vitali, well, in any picture you see of the brothers he has a good inch on Wladamir and is again slightly taller when compared to their shared opponents and thus is at least 6' 8 - as is further evidenced with the comparison further down the page with Odom.

In conclusion, for anyone to say that these guys are any where near 6'7 is patently rubbish.

Essay over.

@ Big94cm
I'm sorry I have to say that but generally you can be a lot more sure about european boxers heights than u.s.-americans. A good example: Wladimir (boxrec 6'6.5) with Eddie Chambers (boxrec 6'1): Click Here Click Here Click Here
Chambers height should be under 6 foot.
filmfan said on 26/Jun/11
Wlad does look taller than 6'5'' though he is a bit shorter than Vitali. Maybe it's a psychological ploy so that his opponents are shocked when they see him in the ring, as he's even bigger than they expected. The Klitchko's are both intelligent likeable guys and a credit to the sport of boxing. Vitali is mega-tough, Wlad a wondeful athlete. I think they'd have beaten all but a handful of heavyweights from previous eras. Huge men who are skillful fighters. A rare combination.
Moke said on 25/Jun/11
Why is it desperate to round down? It would be only desperate if you plan to round down to eventually have some weird kind of tactical advantage. Anyway it's kind of interesting in a psychological way to round down in a world where everyone makes oneself bigger, better, stronger, richer etc. :) He's still 6'6 otherwise Haye would be 6'1 which is nearly impossible.

Vegas said on 24/Jun/11
wlad does look 6'5 range next to ~6'11 dirk nowitzki Click Here he is closer to the camera here and ~6'10 dwight howard is still many inches taller Click Here

if he says 6'5 then he is probably somewhere in that 6'5 range like 197cm

i would give him 195-96cm
Moke said on 23/Jun/11
wow, how can Wladimir say he's 6'5 when he's actually as tall as 6'6.5. Either he miscalculated or this is some eastern understatement. With 6'1 super middleweight Carl Froch Click Here Click Here

If Rob has Joe @ 6 foot exactly, then the Hayemaker [when not leaning in] is 6'3 or close enough to not want to argue with him :)
Truthman said on 21/Jun/11
Shaun he is nowhere near 3 inches shorter, nowhere. To be 3 inches shorter he need to reach only Lamar mouth by his eye level.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Well I think Rob you can vouch with me that David Haye is not as low as 6'1" as as you said seems to be 6'2" range compared to most. But the height difference between him and Wlad is definately a solid 4 inches, no less. So he has to be 6'6". I think he's about an inch shorter than his brother. I wonder why he claimed 6'5" though.. To me Wlad looks to have the frame of a legit 6'6"-6'7 250 pound guy.
[Editor Rob: maybe he used one of those online conversion tools ;)

you know 198cm = 6.5 feet, although he seems a smart guy, so I doubt he fluffed the conversion!

he really doesn't look any less than 4 inches over haye]
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Yeah Haye is 6'2" flat I think, solid 6'3" Rio Ferdinand looks an inch taller. Rio is a genuine 6'3" and looked it next to 6'3.5" Snoop Dog, he was a whisker shorter.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Wlad could be 6'6" barefeet but 6'5" I agree is clearly too low for him. In fact they both remind me in frame of Martin Johnson the rugby player who is a legit 6'7" and 19 stone odd.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Weird thing is Lamar Odoum is a clear 3 inches taller so probably a legit 6'10". He looked it next to that other basketball player Kim Kardashian is dating. By basketball sneaker measurment though you'd expect Odoum to be 6'8.75" barefoot. But I have to say he does look a solid 3 inches taller than Vitali who is no lower than 6'7",
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11

Wlad looks at least 18 inches taller than 5'0 Haydn Pattiere. Looks taller than 6'5" I think.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11

Rob can you believe Wlad only claims 6'5" and David Haye claims 6'3"? Would you agree with me that Wlad looks like a genuine 6'6" guy? He looks 4 solid inches taller than David Haye to me being just about level with the top of his eyes.
[Editor Rob: he looked about 4 inches shorter than him in a few photos from the facedown.]
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Rob you should really have pages for Wladimir and David Haye.

Hay claims 6'3" and Klitschko claims 6'5"!!!! Clearly somebody is lying as Wlad looks a good 4 inches taller than him. Haye I think is 6'2"-6'2.5" seeing the Andy Murray and Darius Danesh pics but Vlad to me looks 198-199cm range and certainly looks taller than 6'5".
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
I think David Haye is 6'2" flat now.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Well Andy Murray is 190cm, so Hay has to be 6'2" flat. Which puts Craig David even lower...

David Haye at 6'3 is almost funny as de la hoya at 5'11. 6'1 max for Haye.
filmfan said on 12/Jun/11
Wlad appears at least 4 inches taller than Haye, possible even 5 inches in the photos together. Yet Haye claims 6'3'' and Walad 6'5'' to 6'6''. Bu there is more than 2 inches between them. I think Haye is possibly 6'2'' while Wlad 6'6'' to 6'7''.

david haye is not 6ft looks 6ft2 here with 6ft3 andy murray not much in it Click Here
Dan said on 5/Jun/11
If you look and &, Rio is listed as 6' 5. I would probalby put him at ~6'3 1/2 - 6'4.

There is no way Wlad is any less than 6'7 and his big brother Vitali 6'8.

Here is a picture of NBA star Lamar Odom (listed 6' 10) with Vitali:

Click Here

And here, a picture of Wlad standing at least 1' taller than 6' 6 listed Ray Austin:

Click Here

If you have ever seen any of the Klitschko's fight on a regular basis, they always stand far taller than the typical 6' 3 heavy. For some reason, they under bill themselves, for instance Wlad once said he was 6' 5. Which is patently ridiculous.
Scott said on 1/Jun/11
Just to hammer the David Haye point home ...

Craig David is listed on this site at 5'11.5.

For people thinking David Haye is 6 foot (!) have a look at Haye with Craig David in Miaimi:

I think I can see JUST about a little bit more than 0.5" difference between them ;)

6'5 Wladimir looks 5 inches taller than haye, haye looks about 6 foot the top of his head is level with Wladimirs eyes, haye is not 6'3 no chance
Scott said on 25/May/11

Take a look at the Joe Calzaghe page on this site.

He is listed as 6 foot and Rob says he has seen him many times. There is a photo of him with Rob.

Now take a look at this photo of David Haye with Calazaghe:

Click Here

Do you still believe Haye is 6 foot?!?

It's not a lucky photo either. In any photo Haye will look 3 inches taller than Calazaghe.

I would say the real debate is whether Haye is 6'2.5 or 6'3.

Claiming he is 6 foot is a slightly embarrassing reflection upon your ability to judge things really!
Leo said on 22/May/11
Rob, with the Wladimir/Haye fight coming up, can you please make a David Haye page. I really, REALLY think he's 6ft - 6ft 1 and not the 6ft 3 he claims. Thanks
Scott said on 19/May/11
David Haye is I'm pretty sure very close to 6'3.

Unless you don't believe Andy Murray is 6'3 either.

Or that Amir Khan is 5'10:

Click Here

Haye is a BIG guy - it's just that he is a smaller heavyweight and he is essentially fighting boxers who occupy a non existent SUPER heavyweight division.

East Europeans who are between 6'6 and 7'0.

People saying Haye is anything less than 6'2.5 are - not to put too fine a point on it - deluded.
Magyar said on 19/May/11
Met both brothers a few times in Germany. Vlad is more vascular but Vitaly is much bigger & more robust than his brother. No contest. Vitaly like 2.02-2.03 meters and 5-6 centimeters taller than Vlad.
Godred said on 13/May/11
I think all of you that are pegging Haye around the 187 mark are correct, he`s never 6`3.

Rob, what you do think about David Haye?

I think he often looks more 6"1 than 6"3!

I've got him at 6"1.75/6"2.

[Editor Rob: I don't think he's 6ft 1, but then he may not be his 6ft 3 claim, somewhere around 6ft 2 might be right.]

I see roughly 4.5 inches between them.

Haye is 6'1.5
Wlad is 6'6-6'6.5
Scott said on 12/May/11
Tommy - about an hour later on Sky Sports News they asked Wladimir his height and he said "I am 6'6 in the morning and 6'5 at night - so I am 6'6 right now".

He then stood up next to the SSN present who claimed he was 6'4.5.

He looked about 3.5 inches taller than him!

Very difficult one to figure. He looks more than 3 inches taller than David Haye.

BUT ...

Haye looks every inch like his listed 6'3 next to 6'3 Andy Murray and Rio Ferdinand. And is clearly taller than 6'1.5 Jonathan Ross & 6'2 Chris Evans when interviewed by them.

Conclusion is that Wlad is 6'6.5
Cranberries said on 11/May/11
"In the photolink below of the 2 brothers standing together Vitali is definitely the taller and heavier set of the two men. His head appears massive compared to Wlad's."

It's the angle, really. Vitali has shorter arms (80 vs. 81 inches), narrower shoulders, smaller hands, and a smaller head than Wladimir. Wladimir weighs about the same, sometimes less, but his build is naturally more robust; he's just a huge tall guy naturally, while Vitali is more lanky and skinny.

When Wlad says his brother is "the stronger one", he's referring to boxing skills; his English isn't too good :P. Wlad is of course still the shorter of the two, by about an inch.

Haye is listed at 6'3"
