@Shiva: I doubt someone that size loses a full inch honestly but Wlad with the long torso maybe. I'd go more with

Wlad 198-199 (tops) if he loses a full inch or 198-198.5 is more likely of the two/ 195.5-196 or 196-196.5

AJ 199-199.5/ 196.5-197
Canson said on 29/Apr/17
Mark I don't think you are far off. He claimed 6'7" that could be a morning or earlier measurement and maybe he's 6'6.75 people round up so it could be right. None of us here is that good that we can tell 1/2" diff
Canson said on 29/Apr/17
Vitali is 200 range Odom is at most 6'9" barefoot
Canson said on 29/Apr/17
Robbe is correct. Joshua is taller of the two. I'd say at worst it's a full cm 196 vs 197
Bazza said on 29/Apr/17
Near 2" booster trainers on!

I'm still expecting at least half an inch in AJ favor. I will eat my words if not!
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 29/Apr/17
I'm still convinced he was in Lifts... unfortunatly we can't se his feets.

Wlad boosters make me think hes def in the 6'4-6'5 range
Kano said on 29/Apr/17
@Sonny Black. 6-6.5? your probably concluding that on how he looked next to Kilschko. in the Fight Fury was like 2.5-3 inches taller. Kiltschko was wearing heavy duty listed. Fury fought a guy called tony Nelshaw who is 6-7 and he looked taller. he looked nearly the same as David Price who claims to be 6-9. Tyson Fury was also clearly taller than 6-7 1/2 Ustinov in the weigh in
anyways these are what i think for the following Heavyweight Figures from Tallest to Shortest
Price 6-8 1/2 or 6-9
Fury 6-8 1/2
Wilder 6-7
Kiltschko 6-6
AJ- 6-5 1/2
Hughie Fury 6-5 1/2
Lennox Lewis 6-4 1/2
Reece said on 29/Apr/17
Wlad still looked taller than AJ in the Face off when both were wearing shoes Wl
Robbe said on 28/Apr/17
Yeah, Joshua was barefoot, while Wlad was wearing his boosted trainers. That's why the difference.
Johno said on 28/Apr/17
Wlad had some 1-inch trainers on at the weigh-in and Joshua was barefoot but the difference looked more than inch.

Also at the press briefing yesterday at the presa briefing when Joshua and Wlad faced off again in humour, Wlad was the taller guy.
Mark said on 28/Apr/17
Hi Adam re Vitali being around 6"6.5 I just called as I saw it. I've met guys around that height so confident not far off.
177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN) said on 28/Apr/17
Yeah Jam, it seems as if AJ is still barefoot.
He doesn't strike me as the text book lift-wearer. Facing Tyson it was a psychological plot...
Jam said on 28/Apr/17
Wlad put his shoes back on after the weigh in. Joshua was barefoot
miko said on 28/Apr/17
He had some monsters on at the weigh in..
Adam said on 28/Apr/17
@Mark. Vitali 6-6? are you kidding? look at the Lamar Odam pictures. Vitali is actually as tall as 6-7.5. He wasnt more than 2 inches shorter than Lamar with a 0.75 inch disadvantage. Vitali was the same height as Timo Hoffman a guy who was also 6-7.5 a while back. Lennox is a legit 195cm i dunno if he is shorter now and Vitali was like 6-7 cm taller. Vitali could also be 6-7 but no lower.
tim181 said on 28/Apr/17
Don't know how he elongates at weigh-ins
Click Here
Looks to have more height on Joshua like he did with Fury. Surprising thing is his sneakers don't look chunky either.
Sonny Black said on 28/Apr/17
Wlad is probably 6'5 flat. Fury isn't 6'9 like he claims, Fury is probably more like 6'6.5. I notice that Wlad is a bit taller than Joshua who claims 6'6, so I'm guessing Joshua is really 6ft 4.25inch and Wlad is 6'5.
Reece said on 28/Apr/17
Is Wlad wearing Lifts? He looked 2 inches taller at the weigh in that AJ
anon said on 28/Apr/17
Wlad looked a tad taller than Joshua at the weighin, did he have is booster shoes on again
Daniel said on 28/Apr/17
Watch last press conference - face to face. Klitschko is a little bit taller than Joshua.
Big T said on 28/Apr/17
ROB- we've just seen the pre-fight square off. Klitschko has 1 solid inch on AJ which makes him a 'press conference 6'7"' as per your own AJ listing. You still think it's 1.75 inches of footwear?
Editor Rob: I think he was a bit taller, but he knows about positioning and we just don't know what he has in his footwear, it's a big unknown.
Bazza said on 28/Apr/17
@Muresan80- interesting, i believe it to be the other way around. We will see tomorrow in the ring who has it for sure, no trickery possible when both in boxing boots. lets not forget Wlad looked near a 6'8 Fury last time out all over in the build up before the bout, but looked a good 2.5 - 3 inches down on fight night, same with the 190cm and a supposed same as Bellew - David Haye, who was clearly was way shorter in the ring :-) ......
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Apr/17
Wladimir klitschko's height

6'6.25-5(199cms) out of bed at best
6'5-5.25(196cms) before bed at worst

Anthony Joshua's height

6'6.5(199-200cms) out of bed at best
6'5.5(197cms) at worst before bed
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
Similar in height with Christian maybe a 1/8" or so shorter. Would wake at maybe a full 6'6 (198) and drop to around 195.5-196 with the long torso
Mark said on 27/Apr/17
Saw Vlad last night at Wembley Arena, 6"5 about right his btother Vitali a big man at around 6"6/6"6.5
Muresan80 said on 27/Apr/17
Clearly taller than Joshua by an inch Wlad is 199 cm and Joshua 197 max
Robbe said on 27/Apr/17
David Price is nowhere near 206cm Click Here

Just check him with Audley Harrison and Tony Thompson. He is max 203cm. That's also his billed height in Boxrec, which is correct. Page for Price, please, Rob.
luke said on 26/Apr/17
that is highly poosible to.also another thing to note. When Wlad Fights in Germany it lists him at 199cm. 198/196 is possible to. be i would go with 199/197. i dont think he will be shorter than Joshua i think eye to eye. but like i said,i could be wrong....
Canson said on 25/Apr/17
Possible. We're more 1cm apart so no we're close no need to split hairs. I'd go 198/196
Lucas said on 24/Apr/17
Page for David Price?
luke said on 23/Apr/17
if Wlad said he is 6-6 in them morning but gives 6-5 as his height it means he is going with a low. Wlad is 199 out of bed in my opinion and 197 before bed. he could be rounding down.i know a guy who is 6-5.5 but rounds down to 6-5 because its easier. Vitali looks 4cm taller than Wlad to me. again just a opinion....
Canson said on 21/Apr/17
@Luke: uh. Wlad said he's 6'5" he didn't say 197. And if you have guys like Allen saying he's only 6'4" he's probably not over a solid 6'5". He also said he's 6'6" out of bed and 6'5" evening. His brother has him by 1.5-2" he's 6'6.75-6'7 yes but to say they definitively give their low heights is speculation
the Slav said on 19/Apr/17
Wlad is probably 196.5'ish at his extreme low (e.g. after a workout) and 199-199.5 out of bed.
Huge mf'er lol
luke said on 19/Apr/17
Wlad is 199cm at his highest and 197cm at his lowest. Vitali 203cm at his highest and 201cm at his lowest. the Kiltschkos are the few athletes how give their height at a low
Canson said on 18/Apr/17
@Johno: have to disagree think it's the other way around AJ is more 197 he's 195.5-196.2
Johno said on 17/Apr/17
He is taller than AJ and you will see that in the ring.
Reece said on 13/Apr/17
He has stood next to 6-5 and looked taller each time. 195cm Lewis,196cm Thompson,196cm Bostice and 196cm Pianneta. Wlad could easily be getting the metric unit confused in forgin countries they may not have used them very much. It could be a physiological ploy as well. Click Here. Wlad looks a inch taller than Tony Thompson
Ice said on 13/Apr/17
Wlad has claimed 6'5 . Thats a fact . Now why would someone who is obviously height - concious (he's a undisputedlety tall guy and wears lifts bc He thinks He isnt tall / imposing enough than He already is) Claim a height SHORTER than 6'6 If He is that height ? Do you guys think that he doesnt know his real height? Its ridicilous . He is a solid 6'5 and Not 6'4 nor 6'6. , End of Story !
Robbe said on 12/Apr/17
Btw guys, did you noticed how Wlad is tiptoeing in his sandals in the picture grizz posted on 4 April?

Click Here

He looks taller than his 6'6" partner and i wondered why, untill i realised Wlad is tiptoeing there.
Robbe said on 11/Apr/17
Pictures taken in the Wembley stadium grass, both men wearing trainers, A.J. looks taller in allmost every picture. But when both men are wearing dressing shoes, Wlad looks taller. I think we all know the reason why..
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
Wlad is 195-196. Tops a full 196.
AJ is 196-197. Lowest could be 196.5 high 197. He's somewhere between a strong 6'5" and weak 6'6 while Wlad is a strong 6'5@ in the low end of it
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
Ice is correct he is 6'6" out of bed and 6'5" at his lowest. Rob has him appropriately listed even if he may drop a fraction under 6'5.25. He has claimed 6'5" for his height enough times that he most likely is that height. Don't know why we believe guys who claim to be like 6'2" and are 6'0" or claim 6'4-6'5 like the Rock who is actually 6'2" but when someone tells the truth about their height they inflate him. Wlad knows the difference between 6'5 and 6 and a half feet
Ollie said on 10/Apr/17
@Shiva. Wlad can look shorter but he can look taller a some pictures.Click Here. Wlad looks taller than AJ even with both in flats in my pic.I dunno who is really taller. could be any of them
shiva 181 cms said on 10/Apr/17
Come on guys do you think wlad is taller than Joshua no definitely not
Here we can see their footwear and wlad has a bit footwear advantage Click Here
Imo wlad is 6'5.26 as listed and claimed by him and Joshua is 6'5.75
If he got confused and said six five which implies 6.5 feet
Then what would six six imply 6.6 or 6'7.2 ?
Athletes have a perfect idea of body statistics given he is the hwc for years

Reece said on 9/Apr/17
Ice. Wlad looks taller than AJ in some pictures even in Flats. i think Wlad could edge out AJ. Wlad always looked taller than 6-5. i think he would be a bit bigger than 198cm out of bed. i think Wlad would be 199cm early on and measure 197-197.5 late on in the day like before bed. i think he would be 6-6 for a lot the day...
Canson said on 9/Apr/17
Agreed Ice 198 out of bed 195-196 or full 196 lowest
Ice said on 9/Apr/17
Ok so let me get this straight once and for all. Wlad is a solid 6'6"/198 cm Out of bed guy ans is a NOTORIOUS Lift wearer . those monsters give him over an inch to his height with dress shoes on. Joshua never looked shorter than him on any occasion , only with certain camera angles . Wlad is 6'5" without lifts and claiming that Joshua Stands at 6'4 is Just pathetic and sad.

Jane said on 6/Apr/17
No way is Wlad 196cm in my opinion. Wlad is taller than AJ IMO in most pictures. Wlad is 198cm for sure and AJ is a bit less probably 197cm. here are some pictures.Click Here. Wlad looks taller in most pictures. i doubt he is 0.75-1 inch shorter

-------

I agree with AJ being 197cm, but Wlad isn't 198cm. He just tends to wear lifts when he's around AJ for some reason.
Canson said on 8/Apr/17
Strong 6'5"

Here is a picture of Wlad with 6-7.5 Marius Wach.Click Here i cannot see more than 1.5 inches difference.Wlad is a 6-6 guy who get confused due to the metric unit and says 6-5.

Sam said on 4/Apr/17
Intresting you have Kiltschko at 196 and AJ at 198cm.Kiltschko looks taller than AJ in most pictures with Flats on.i think AJ in 197cm but Wlad is 198cm.
Mathew said on 3/Apr/17
Kiltschko changed from 1cm insert to 2cm. it is very possible he is putting something in his boxing shoes. Why would Chuck Wepner lie about Wlad being 6-4. Wlad might not be putting a direct lift but he could easily be getting his Heels raised. i have seen both Kiltschko brothers look bigger in press confrences than in RING. Wlad seems to love Lifts. look at him with Pulev who himself in 6-4 yet Wlad look 4 inches taller in confrences. he could easily be 6-4 barefoot but making himself look bigger with lifts. remember lifts come in all forms even in socks.
Ian said on 2/Apr/17
I think it's absurd to suggest that the heavyweight champion of the world for almost a decade, has risked losing every fight he had by wearing lifts in his boxing shoes. Seriously, it's just crazy. He is clearly somewhere in the 6'5" to 6'6" range. Not 6'4"
Gman said on 2/Apr/17
Come on guys Wlad is very likely 6'5.25" at his lowest of lows. Like at midnight before bed. No way on earth does he wear lifts in his boxing shoes. That would be bad for his balance. I can believe he uses boxing shoes with a slightly thicker sole and insole, maybe giving him a 1 inch boost over barefoot height but that's all. I that his 6'5 quote actually means 6.5 or 6 and-a-half feet. Remember he comes from a world were the metric system is boss. And take a look at the face-off with Fury at the weigh in. Wlad has in running shoes. With a lift in there, which I can believe is possible, he is maybe 2 inches over barefoot height so lets say 6'7.5". Which would be about right based on the way he looked with Fury who I believe is between 6'7 and 8. No way on earth is this guy a flat six four. He is very likely NOT wearing lifts with his MANY stare-downs with Anthony Joshua, that's his real height folks.
Matthew said on 2/Apr/17
Strange. i just read a article in 2009 about 6-5 Chuck Wepener saying Wlad is not the 6-6 everybody thinks and that he is really 6-4. David Allen said Wlad is 6-4 to and Hughie Fury who is 6-6 said Wlad was wearing Lifts and he is shorter than Hughie then Hughie started pointing to his forehead that would imply Wlad is 6-4. if Wlad is really 6-4 then he must be putting Lifts into all his shoes including Boxing shoes. this would mean if Wlad is 6-4 that Vitali cannot be much more to because he is taller than Wlad by a inch to a inch in a half tops no more than that. are the Kiltschko brothers putting on that 6-6 and 6-7 impression by putting lifts into all their shoes including their boxing ones.got me thinking.
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
@Robbe: i agree. I don't get why all these people here think Wlad downplays his height. He's said many times he's 6'5". And even said once he's 6'6" out of bed 6'5" evening. That looks the most precise
Canson said on 31/Mar/17
Wlad is 6'5" not 6'6".

Out of bed 198cm-198.5

Before bed 196cm
Robbe said on 31/Mar/17
@Paul, i find it quite odd that Wlad appears shorter than Wilder in every picture found in the net. Quite a coincidence? You should think that Wlad would be similar height at least in one picture? Wlad posture aint so bad afterall, exept the last picture.

Also, Wilder might be just flat 6'6". He looks shorter than 6'6.25 listed Carmelo Anthony, and he is definitely shorter than Kelvin Price, who is around 6'6-6'7.
Paul said on 31/Mar/17
@Robbe. Wlad thinks 6-5 is 198cm when it is he is getting the cm unit confused.In the Vitali Kiltschko height thing Rob even says Wlad said 6-5 198cm i doubt he fluffed the conversation. Wlad does realise 198cm is 6-6 and not 6-5.Wlad is standing awful with both Wilder and Robert not up Straight and at his best thats why he looks a couple inches shorter. AJ is not taller than Wlad in most pictures even in Flats Wlad is the taller man. AJ looks 6,5.5 with Rob and Wlad is full out 6-6. i Doubt AJ is a inch taller than Wlad and Wlad is taller in most pictures.
Canson said on 28/Mar/17
Robbe: completely agree with you
Robbe said on 27/Mar/17
There's no way Wlad is 198-199cm. Robert Helenius and Deontay Wilder are both 199cm and they edge out Wlad by 3-4cm. I believe Wlad has said his morning height is 198cm. That means he is flat 196cm (6'5).
Paul said on 24/Mar/17
How can Wladimir say he is 6-5 when he is actually could be as tall 6,6.5. Wladimir is 198-199. he looks no less than 17 inches taller than his 5-1 partner. David Haye is not the small man people keep saying i have met him and he looks in the 187-188 range. i really think Haye is 6-2 but Wlad was like 4-4.5 inches taller than Haye. Vitali is massive to easily 202cm he makes 6-3 and 6-4 look shorter. look at Wlad next to Johnny nelson not long ago in training camp and Johnny reckons he is 6-5 yet Wlad towers over him. Lennox Lewis is a 195-196cm guy and Wlad is taller. and David Bostice who is 6-5 and Wlad is taller too. as for AJ i doubt he is under 6,5.75 and the pic with you he doesnt even seem to be Standing his best. AJ does look 6-6 with Charles Martin and other boxers.Wlad 6-6 to 6,6.5
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
@Andrew: I'd put AJ more 197 maybe 6'5.5 (196.85) and Wlad 6'5-6'5.25 but you're right a cm maybe 1/2" is all it is
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
@Nick: respectfully disagree: Joshua wakes up north of 6'6" and is nothing less than 196 range. I'd go 197 but it's possible rob may have overestimated him because it's such a small difference but he can easily tell he isn't 6'4".
Nick said on 22/Mar/17
Andrew said on 22/Feb/17
Nick Joshua is taller than Klitschko. Klitschko wears lifts. Take note when they're both in the ring AJ will be 1cm taller. Joshua is 198 and Wlad probably 196-197 without lifts. Again, take note in the ring.


Dear Andrew I would be willing to bet on this, your claims will be debunked the moment they are stepping on that ring, besides I just dont buy all this Wlad is wearing lifts or whatever stop joking. Oh and you made me laugh so hard like you can spot a 1 cm difference??? cmon not even if you had a magnifier.
Nick said on 22/Mar/17
@steve,

And now we can review some Math together. "6'5.45" is not 6'6"....I'll give you a few days to take than in.

Also keep in mind Ace that When I said he doesn't have 9"-10" on Rob, that means 10" ( after taking into account the footwear). If you meant 10" Including footwear then my fault, may have thought that's would you actually meant.....HOWEVER....If you still somehow think Joshua has 10" on Rob with equal footing then you SHould start to Worry.




The issue here that nobody seem to consider is that when you claim Joshua is X height you mean in shoes because in the pic with Rob he has sneakers on, which means that when Joshua is really 193cm barefoot in sneakers he should be about 195cm (also according to that picture with Rob also seen that Joshua is clearly stretching up to the point of looking stiff everytime he poses no matter with who) but not without shoes big difference in there.

Beside I really cant say for sure but Ive serious doubts on these pictures with Rob, you never get to see their feet and even if you could who says Rob or someone else is not retouching the pictures in order to make these guys the billed heights?

Check the pictures where Joshua is standing besides 190cm barefoot Eddie Hearn, then check Eddie Hearn next to 175cm billed Luke Campbell and you will know what I mean...
boxing fan said on 9/Mar/17
6,5?he claims 6,5 i think he has said 198cm too. 198cm is 6,6 i think he is getting confused. Wlad was taller than Lennox Lewis and Tony Thompson who are 6,5. Wladimir is 6,6 and his brother is 6,7 Vitali makes 6,3 and 6,4 men look small and 6,3 and 6,4 is gigantic. Vitali looks taller next to chisora than Helenius does. Vitali was roughly the same as ustinov who is 6,7.5 he was half a inch shorter in most pictures. Wlad 6,6 and Vitali 6,7- 6-7.5
Robbe said on 1/Mar/17
Here's a good picture to compare Wlad's height. Robert Helenius is 6'6.5". Deontay Wilder seems to be the same height as Helenius. Wlad is 1.5in shorter than these men.

Click Here

Means Wlad is no moore than 6'5", just like he says. Tyson Fury is an inch taller than Helenius/Wilder, so he is 6'7.5".
James said on 26/Feb/17
@movieguy. i read the article of Chuck Wepner saying Wlad is 6,4 and he is 6,5. i look at pictures of Wepner he looks like a very tall man even at his old age i reckon he is 6,5 o at least close. i agree Wlad looks a solid 6,6. if Wlad is really 6,4 then he must be finding a way to get some sort of lift on in his Boxing shoes? their are pictures of Wlad barefoot like in the Haye and Povetkin weigh inss he still looks 6,6. Sock Lifts are buyable meaning you can wear socks that increase height? i wonder how old Wlad was when Chuck met him the interview as in 2009 and Chuck said he met Wlad a few years before.Vitali looks a strong 6,7 he towers of legit 6,3 and 6,4 Heavyweights.Maybe the Kiltschko brothers are really Insucre about their Height.Click Here Wlad still looks large barefoot. i struggle to believe 6,4.
Jordan87 said on 25/Feb/17
Steve,

Anytime , clearly you couldn't figure out the difference. How long have you and Anthony been dating ? It's not 10" no matter how you looks at the picture. So yes , you need help still .
Steve said on 24/Feb/17
@Jordan87
Omg 6ft5.45 isn't 6ft6??? Wow, you learn some amazing facts about height on this website! Thanks so much for letting me know!

Obviously you missed the point of what I was saying (no surprises there).

Anyway, Rob comes up to Joshua's chin so unless Joshua has a ridiculously small head for his height then 10inches is obviously reasonable. It's funny that you're saying I need to worry/get checked out when we disagree by like half an inch lol, maybe 2/3inches and there'd be cause for concern.

And you're still banging on about that 0.3 inch footwear difference!?! Let it go man it's negligible (negligible means it's too small to pay attention to btw).
Jordan87 said on 23/Feb/17

Jordan87 said on 23/Feb/17
Steve,

There is a 9 inch Difference. Not a 10 inch difference. We are not arguing over .25", we are arguing over an 1 inch.

Look at the picture again. He is 6'5.25-6'5.5. after taking footwear into account as well as the ACTUAL Picture.

Want to talk math Mistakes? Why don't we address your Inability to Look at a Picture. Rip your Joshua posters off the wall now that you I both agree he isn't 6'6".
Tut Tut said on 23/Feb/17
Wladimir and Joshua are both 6,6. Wlad looks taller in some but we know he likes lifts he could be wearing them vs Joshua. i think both will be eye to eye when they Fight.
Steve said on 22/Feb/17
@Jordan87 So this is how our conversation has gone so far...

Me: There's a 9-10inch difference between Rob and Joshua in the photo

You: Joshua doesn't have 9 or 10 inches on rob, you didn't look at the photo or read the description where rob states that Joshua had a footwear advantage (0.3inch)

Me: I did look at the photo which is how I figured 9-10inch difference, I'll take the footwear into account and say 9.7inch difference to make you feel better

You: The photo shows Joshua to be 6ft5.75 which is 6ft5.25 if you take off the footwear advantage.

So... I'm not sure if you realise... but 6ft5.75 would mean there's a 9.75inch difference... which is within the 9-10 inches that I've been saying since my first comment.
You then said that if you take off the footwear advantage it makes him 6ft5.25 which is wrong because if you take off 0.3inch it equals 6ft5.45 (9.45inches taller than rob).
So in 1 comment you say 'there isn't a 9 or 10inch difference', now you're saying there's over 9inches difference... And actually, if your maths better than someone of the age of 10, your own calculations would add up to 9.45inches difference which is only 0.25 less than my 9.7inch guess.
I don't normally like to argue over 0.25inches and go into all this detail but you're telling me to 'focus' and get myself 'checked out' and yet you're the one who seems to not be able to add up.
Andrew said on 22/Feb/17
Nick Joshua is taller than Klitschko. Klitschko wears lifts. Take note when they're both in the ring AJ will be 1cm taller. Joshua is 198 and Wlad probably 196-197 without lifts. Again, take note in the ring.

Click Here

You can't compare someone wearing socks to someone wearing lifts in their shoes. In this photo both are wearing shoes with heels but Wlad has lifts in his shoes so realistically is 1-2cm shorter than AJ. Take note on fight night not all the garbage around it. Same as Molina and AJ post weigh in Joshua looks 1 inch taller than Molina because he's wearing socks while Molina is wearing shoes then look on fight night, AJ is clearly 2 inches taller. Fight night is where it counts.

He can pull 6ft6 off aswell
Tut Tut said on 21/Feb/17
Click Here here is Wlad with 6,5 Tony Thompson he is clearly taller. Wlad is 6,6. he has said 198cm lots of times but he keeps thinking 198cm is 6,5 when it is 6,6.
qartt said on 21/Feb/17
Nick, firecracker you are buying the promotion when it comes to Wladimir height. He is shorter than Joshua which is why his head and body looks larger in the publicity shots e.g. he is always closer to the camera and he does wear lifts at times. In the few long shots, Joshua is larger. Wait until they get in the ring, Joshua has a height advantage, may only be half inch, may be nearer an inch.
Steve said on 21/Feb/17
@firecracker you say 'all evidence shows him taller than Joshua' and then you only post 2 pictures lol.
'All evidence' would be every single photo of them together, not just 2. As I said before there's way more photos where Joshua is taller than Klitschko, you've just found a couple where he isn't.
The photos you've found don't show footwear or anything like uneven ground so to base it on that is stupid.
Rob has both listings spot on IMO
Jordan87 said on 21/Feb/17
Steve,

Why don't you look at the picture again with Joshua and come back and tell me he looks 6'6" In it. If you do think Joshua looks 6'6", then get yourself checked out.

The Picture shows Joshua to be 6'5-3/4". Take away his SHoe advantage and he is 6'5.25" Look at the top of the guys head, it shows very clearly.
Nick said on 21/Feb/17
Ok are you ready for the MASTER PROOF?

Wladimir Klitschko is 195cm tops.

That is fact of science, Klitschko with 199cm listed Robert Helenius Click Here

Now I personally know the guy on Helenius right of this picture (he is not standing fully straight) he is about 193/195cm we played football together many times. He is about the same height as me.

Click Here

So no way Klitschko is over the 195cm mark. Joshua is a tad shorter than Klitschko so just picture Joshua next to Helenius and then you have it, Joshua is 193cm tall.




@firecracker probably this site is full of fans, promoters and agents that are trying to keep up the hype..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/17
Rob, could 6ft5Β½ be closer for Wlad?
Editor Rob: Rampage, it could be argued he pulls it off.

The problem with Wlad is that he has tried to troll opponents by adding an inch into his sneakers/shoes to surprise them by looking taller!
Tut Tut said on 20/Feb/17
Wladimir keeps saying 6,5 and he said his brother is 6,6. however this is clearly of. Wlad has said he is 198cm. but 198cm is 6,6 not 6,5. i think Wlad knows it in meters but not in 6,6 form.Wlad is taller than Tony Thompson,Lennox Lewis legit 6,5. Wlad is 6,6. and Vitali is 6,7.5 and the Lamar Odam pictures prove it. he is 2 inches shorter and Odam has 0.5 inches in shoes. i make Lamar 6,9 and Vitali 6,7.5.
Thomas 6ft 3.25 said on 20/Feb/17
Hey Rob, I am not sure if Wladimir knows the difference between 6ft 5 and 6.5 feet because he claimed to be 198cm very often.
firecracker said on 18/Feb/17
this site is going down, because evidences are not considered.
1)On a few occasions (BBC/Conan O'Brien) he(klitschko) has said he is "Six Five".
First consideration: why he is listed 6'5.25" if he has said to be 6'5" ????? for which unknown reason he has received 0.25 more????

2)he is 6'5", all the evidences show him a tad taller than joshua:
Click Here - Click Here

second consideration: for which unknown reason joshua is listed 6'6", if he is a tad shorter than self proclamed 6'5" klitschko????

all this is nonsense.

hope to see a changed name soon: Click Here
Ice said on 18/Feb/17
Wladimir Klitschko is 6'4 ? Whats next , Lennox Lewis is 6'2 ?
Bill said on 18/Feb/17
Click Here Wepener looks like his 6,5 claim in this picture. i am starting to think the 6,4 does hold some truth. Wlad could be getting getting somebody to raise the soles of his boxing shoes bigger. this could mean Wlad looks 6,6 but is actually 6,4. Also,lets remember he loves lifts. he was a touch taller than Fury in the final weigh in. in the Fight Wlad looked the full 3 inches shorter if you look at the touch gloves and certainly no less than 2.5. Vitali looks huge to he looks 6,7 or a touch above. he looked to be 2-2.5 inches taller than a legit 6,5 Lennox Lewis.and Allen and Hughie reckon Wlad is 6,4 too.Strange i never really considered it but is that that how much Wlad is inscure about his height?
Steve said on 17/Feb/17
@jordan87 I did look at the picture and I did read Rob's description... Which is how I figured there's a 9/10inch difference. Rob comes up to Joshua's chin.
You're telling me to focus because I ignored a 0.3inch footwear difference lol. That's not even a centimetre... but I'll say 9.7inch difference just to make you feel better.
Rob obviously feels there was a 10inch difference as well, hence why he's listed him as 6'6 when Rob is 5'8.
Reece said on 17/Feb/17
Rob said he had 0.3 inches in Footwear thats barely nothing. Joshua looks 6,6 to me.
movieguy said on 17/Feb/17
I've seen the Chuck Wepner comment on Wlad being 6'4''. I find it strange as Wepner would have no reason to lie but Wlad does genuinely look about 6'6'' or close to it. Vitali always looked about 6'7'' as well. He had a couple of inches on Lennox Lewis. Lennox himself said Vitali was the tallest boxer he had ever seen when they fought.
Ric said on 16/Feb/17
@Bill funny then that Wlad towered over Hughie Fury
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
Steve,

Joshua Doesn't have 9 or 10 Inches on Rob. You didn't look at the picture or read Rob's Description stating that Joshua had more footwear than rob Did.

Focus.
Bill said on 15/Feb/17
Chuck Wepner said he is 6,5 and has a inch on Wladimir! Hugie Fury who claims 6,6 and looks pretty close to this claim said Wlad is not as tall as him and started pointing to his Forehand and that would mean Wlad is 6,4. Allen said Wlad is 6,4! Strange because Wlad looks like a 6,5.5 guy and maybe even his full 6,6 listing.a good Friend of my got Boris Beckers autograph in Bremen in 2005,he told me he saw Wlad is 6,4 and Vitali as 6,5.5! again Strange because Vitali has never looked less than 6,7. Maybe the Kiltschkos cover up their height by Wearing Lifts and Height trolling. remember you can get sock lifts meaning you can be barefoot and still have lifts.Chuck Wepner seems like a knowledgable guy i cannot see why he would lie about being 6,5 and having a inch on Wladimir.i would like to see more pictures of the Brothers barefoot.
Reece said on 15/Feb/17
Firecracker and Nick are the same people steve. Joshua is 6,6 and certainly not under 197cm. Joshua was only a tad smaller than breazeale.
Brah said on 15/Feb/17
He never took off his shoes at the weigh-in. Only his shirt. Lifts it was.
Steve said on 14/Feb/17
The boxer who's claiming that Klitschko is 6ft4 is just delusional. He's 6ft5 absolute minimum, slightly more I'd say.

@firecracker There's absolutely 0 chance that Joshua is in the 6ft4. Laughable to suggest he's 6ft4.25.
I've seen probably 20+ photos of him with different celebs/sportsmen where he makes them look tiny, some of them have been 6ft3/6ft4 themselves and he still towers over them.
His photo with Rob is a good example. Has at least 9/10inches on him Click Here
Leo said on 14/Feb/17
Wlad is not as tall as some people think. he wears lifts a lot and also he raises the soles of his boxing shoes in the RING. His brother Vitali has 2 inches on him but sometimes it looks closer due to footwear,camara angle and Wlad Lifts.Click Here he is not too much taller than 6,1 Federer even though Federer looks 6,1.5 to me. i see Wladimir as 6,4.5 or 6,5,Vitali 6,6.5-6,7. Wladimir seems to not have his lifts on here. Wlad always look 6,6 in the RING and 6,8 in press confrences.maybe its a Kiltschko intimdation i wonder if Vitali does it too.
firecracker said on 13/Feb/17
Despite he was listed 6'6"(198cm) throughout his career, klitschko has replied many times when asked: "actually i am 6'5". Probably he is 6'4.75"(195cm) barefoot.

this means wilder is a full 6'6"(198cm) and joshua max 6'4.25"(193cm)

toughguy said on 13/Feb/17
people are taking this lift thing to far. no way is Wlad only 6,4 without lifts.Click Here Wlad looks to me like a 197-198cm guy even with Flat Boxing shoes surely you cannot fit Lifts in their.I reckon he does were lifts sometimes. he was indeed shorter than Fury in the FIGHT unlike the Weigh in. Fury is probably 6,8-6,8.5 he looked like he was 2.5 inches taller than 197cm-198cm Wlad.
Nick said on 13/Feb/17
lift here lifts there, what a jokers just check this video Click Here at 2.13 Klitschko is getting off the scale barefoot and you can see for few seconds his head is about same height as Fury's the man said it himself in interviews he is 195cm and yet he's listed here at 196cm why? :)
(Also beginning of the video Klitschko is taking shoes off before weighing in, would he have worn "lifts" you could clearly see the gap between shoe height and barefoot height)

Fury can be 200cm at most the 3cm more is for advertising or shoe height
Reece said on 13/Feb/17
the weird think is Fury said he is 6,5 198cm in the First Presser July 2015. but 198cm is 6,6 not 6,5. Wlad looks closer to 6,6 than 6,5. Joshua is 6,6 and Wladimir is virtually the same height nearly sometimes Wlad looks taller and sometimes Joshua does. i can buy 6,6 for Wlad. but the problem is that 6,7 Wilder seemed to be a good bit taller than Wladimir 1.5-2 inches unless the Camara angle was misleading or Wlad is slouching. Wlad also looked 3 inches shorter than Fury. my prediction was that Fury is 6,8.5, Wilder is 6,7 and Kiltschko is 6,5.5. but it is confusing because Wlad loves lifts it will be intresting to see who is taller or if they are the same when he gets in the RING with Joshua.
Avi said on 12/Feb/17
Rob,What do you think of these 6,4 Claims for Wlad. if thats true Wlad must be serious about lifts Because he always looks taller than That.he looks at the very least 6,5.5 and the full 6,6. he was eye to eye with Fury in their Final presser. if Wlad was 6,4 he would need to find way to stuff over 4 inches in his shoes to be equal to Fury.
Editor Rob: Avi, it's just an estimate from the other boxer, somebody who has met him...similar to Fury calling him 6ft 5.

I'd say less than 6ft 5 is hard to believe though. I wouldn't guess less than 196cm.
Roy Jones said on 11/Feb/17
Wladimir raises his boxing shoes by 1 inch. he never looks more than 6,5 in training pictures. Wlad is 6,5 Wilder is 6,7 and Fury is 6,8. Wilder had Kiltschko by a easy 2 inches and Fury 3.
Ice said on 11/Feb/17
Yes he isnt a true 6'6 guy but 6'4 ? You guys are delusional
Ice said on 11/Feb/17
It would be very interesting to know If he whore lifts when facing off with Joshua , who is supposed to be an Inch taller . They looked virtualy the Same height , so either Joshua is 6'5" as well (although I could really Buy 6'6 for him) or Wlad once again wore lifts . Hm . Interesting .
Reece said on 11/Feb/17
it is hard to say Wlad real height. in the RING he looks a large 6,6 still. he did not look more than 4cm shorter than 6,7.5 Wach. he was also one inch taller than 6,5 Thompson and again taller than 6,4.5 rounded up 6,5 David Bostice. however i am wonder if he has somebody raise his heels to make him appear slightly taller. Wilder had a good 2 inches on Kiltschko in training pictures. maybe Wilder is 6,7.5 and Kiltschko is 6,5.5 or it could be the Angle confusing think. my guess is Wlad is 6,5.5,Wilder is 6,7 and Fury is 6,8.5. Kiltschko must have been wearing at least 3 inch lifts in the final presser,or he probably got somebody to raise his soles.he was eye to eye with Fury even though he is 3 inches shorter and certainly no less than 2.5 in reality.
Mid190s said on 10/Feb/17
6'5 Actual Height
6'5.5 in Ring Height
6'6.5 Press Conference Height
6'7.5 Lift Height

He 100% wore lifts in the Press Conferences w Tyson Fury. That's common knowledge, but to say he does it all the time... I don't know. I hope Rob can get a photo with him without getting harmed. That would dispel a lot of rumours
mtttrrr said on 9/Feb/17

David Allen on Twitter is now claiming to be anywhere between 6'3 and 6'5.5 depending on footwear and time of day
Reece said on 8/Feb/17
Thanks for the feedback Rob about Wilder.Wlad 6,5 claim might have some truth maybe he has his heels raised before he gets in the Ring but not in Training. he looks a 6,6 in the Ring always. he was not more that 4cm shorter than 6,7.5 Wach he was taller than legit 6,5 Tony Thompson by a inch and look even with 6,6 with Ray Austin. Maybe Wlad gets his heels raised thus making him look taller. their are even claims that Wlad is 6,4. i doubt that thought,because to be eye to eye with Fury or a tad Taller in that final weigh in Wlad would have to get something 4.5-5 inches into his shoes if he was 6,4.
Pitch_Fork said on 7/Feb/17
Wlad is not Wladimir, Wlad is Wladislav!
Height Master said on 7/Feb/17
I think Wlad is 6,6 and no less than 6,5.5. Wlad never look more than 4cm shorter than Wach who is 6,7.5.Wlad looked a solid 3 inches taller than Jennings who is 6,3. Wlad looks every bit 6,6 next to joshua as well who is roughly identical height. he is always a 1 inch taller than a legit 6,5 Lennox Lewis.i am sure he often wears Lifts thats why he can look 6,8 tall at times. one time a claimed he was 6,4.5 on sky sports news in May 2011 in build up to the Haye fight and Wlad was solid 3.5 inches taller! which gives 6,8 with Wlad lifts on. 6,5 seems too short
Canson said on 6/Feb/17
Wlad is not 6'6" nor is he 6'4. He's 6'5-6'5.25. No more no less at his lowest. He's 6'6" out of bed with a long torso so an inch loss is possible with him no less than 0.75-1"
Reece said on 6/Feb/17
Rob. could you please make Deontay Wilder a page on this site. he claims 6,7 a and he legit looks it or even a taller at 6,7.5! here is picture with him and Kiltschko.Click Here. he looks 1.5-2 inches taller in pictures and i doubt Wladimir is under a strong 197cm 6,5.5. i think Wilder is 6,7.5,Kiltschko is 6,5.5
Editor Rob: Reece, I'd doubt Wilder is taller than 6ft 7.
Height Master said on 6/Feb/17
Allen said Wlad is 6,4 but no way is that possible. he looks a solid 6,6 even without his lifts in the Ring. so if Wlad is 6,4 he would have need t stuff 4 inch lifts in his shoes to be the same size as Fury. you cant fit something that big in trainers. their are pictures of Wlad barefoot like in weigh ins and with his GF at the Beach. he reckon he wore lifts in the Weigh in with Fury making him look in the 6,8 Range. Fury looked at least 2 inches taller if not a touch more. I reckon Wlad is 6,6 and Fury is 6,8.5 he looked a good bit taller than Wlad in last presser April 2016 Manchester. Wlad is not less than 6,5.5 no way.
CreepX said on 4/Feb/17

To me it looks like flat boxing shoes.
Editor Rob: there, I doubt he's wearing anything but boxing shoes.
Scott said on 27/Jan/17
i thing 6,6 and 6,2.5 are the Listed Heights for Kiltschko and Haye. Haye looked every bit 6,2.5 with Murray,Froch when both are on sky and joe Calzeghe. Haye looked even more shorter because Wlad and Harrison both wore lifts in confrences. Look at the Fight between them.their was no more than 3.5-4 inches. Haye was a lot closer in height to Kiltschko than i thought. Kiltschko looked as much as 6 inches taller look at their picture together in 2009.
Reece said on 27/Jan/17
Wlad looks slightly taller than legit 6,5 Tony Thompson in the ring. I think he is 6'5.5 still. It hard to say because he height trolls with lifts. I believe he is 6,6 in the morning like he says and 6,5 before bed. And 6,5.5 imbetween
Canson said on 25/Jan/17
Wlad is 6'5 195.5-196.2 not 6'5.5
Reece said on 25/Jan/17
Kiltschko is shorter than Fury by 2.5 inches. look at the Manchester confrence with Wlad and Fury. Wlad is a 197cm guy even without Lifts he looked it barefoot with Povetkin and he is always taller than 6,4.5,6,5 lennox Lewis by a little bit. Fury is 6,8 and Wlad is 6,5.5 and out of bed they are more. Wlad was not more than 4cm smaller than 6,7.5 Wach. Fury was also taller than 6,7 listed Wilder. anything less than 6,8 for Fury is not realistic.
Nick said on 23/Jan/17
this is my favorite parts, when Wlad is putting his hand on top of Hayes head as a little kid who is trying to pick on him.. :) Click Here

then you can see also here how far is Wlads head top from Hayes Click Here
Nick said on 23/Jan/17
lifts are non sense for Wlad maybe dress shoes but lifts cmon :) and btw when Klitschko is a legit 195/6cm guy you cant see much of a difference between him and Tyson Fury which is 200cm guy is reality
Nick said on 23/Jan/17
did you even see the fight? Wladimir actually appear even taller in the match, Click Here Klitschko is Goliath and David Haye is trying to dive and jump at Klitschko as he cant reach the target being himself way too short fo that, failing and ending up on the floor, it is not a diving competition :) Haye is such a joke of a "fighter btw.. he's not even heavyweight I wonder why hes listed as such
Canson said on 23/Jan/17
My have the times changed. More and more people now are guessing wlad at his proper height around 6'5/6'5.25 than 6'6 or above. People are finally getting it that he wears lifts and that he is that height at his lowest. One inch full inch in a day with his long torso is completely within the realm of possibility that he can be 198 and 195.5 or 198.8/196.2
Rob said on 23/Jan/17
the Height Difference was less than this in the FIGHT. It is the Camara angle.
Nick said on 22/Jan/17
someone mentioned only 8cm between Haye and Klitschko? here they both stand barefoot... Click Here now someones going to have a go and claim Klitschko has lifts in his socks LOL :)

The thing is Haye is no more than 183cm and Klitschko really is 195/6cm guy.

Reece said on 21/Jan/17
Rob, could you do a page on Wilder? He claims 6,7 and he looks in the range. He could also be 6,6.5 to he can look b1-1.5 inches taller than Wladimir in boxing gear
Reece said on 14/Jan/17
Mark D Kiltschko has been wearing Lifts for years. In press conferences Wlad was as much as 5 inches taller than Haye but when they fought their was no more than 3.5 inches difference. Wlad is much taller than Pulev in pressers but in the Fight Wlad only looked 1 inch taller. Wladimir was the same as Fury in the weigh in but we saw in last years Manchester conference Fury looked 2.5-3 inches taller than a Kiltschko! I doubt he is the 6,4 Allen claims i think he is 6'5.5
Ice said on 12/Jan/17
Most notorious Lift wearer on celebheights ..
Editor Rob: with all the dons he's ordered through this site, the guy has nearly paid off my house! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Mark D. said on 9/Jan/17
Lifts? Really? I'd say 6'5.5". He looks that compared to other fighters of different heights. I'm about an inch shorter than that. The last thing I'd ever wear is lifts. I wouldn't mind losing an inch at times, having hit my head on low doorways, pipes and ceiling fans enough times in my life.
CreepX said on 21/Dec/16
Rob:

The biggest problem I see considering Klitschkos height is his long torso and neck. Me myself looks shoorter in person than a friend of mine, (I also tought so at first) But we measured up and I edged him by half a cm. He's long legged, short necked, while I'm the opposite, so it makes sense, he walks taller naturally. To me it's seems that Joshua and Klitschko are the same case. Klitschko must stretch up more to reach his maximum height. That could explain why David Allen thought Klitschko were just 6''4'

I also believe that Klitschko's morning/night differential is wider than Joshua's due to their opposite stature.
Canson said on 21/Dec/16
I agree with Guy. For wlad to be 6'4" it'd mean he and His brother both wear lifts or that his brother lies about his height (inflates, claims shoes etc). Now could be that Vitali is a morning 6'7" and that he is closer to 6'6" at night I guess but that is the only conceivable way for that to be possible. But David Allen prob is still an inch shorter in his trainers. No way is Wlad less than 6'5. 6'5-6'5.25 range 196cm which is why he looks 1.5-2" shorter than his brother. 6'6" out of bed and with a longer spine a loss of 2.5-3cm is well within realm
Guy said on 20/Dec/16
I think some people are going overboard with the lift stuff.....lmao at him jepordizing his performamce by wearing them in the ring. Fury has towered over pretty much all his opponents, and who is to say Wlad didnt bring out the lifts just in this case to try to make a psychological point that Fury wasnt the bigger man this time around? To me that makes far more sense than Wlad wearing lifts all the time.

Its going to be hard for some people to accurately judge him now if they always assume lifts, and the 6'4 stuff is pure nonsense. Wlad is pretty much the same height as AJ in their training photos from a few years back when AJ was still coming up the rankings, and I highly doubt he would be wearing lifts in that context.
movieguy said on 20/Dec/16
I think this guy is 6'5'' no more, no less. The lifts in shoes think is funny he's not exactly a midget. It was weird the way he stood eye to at the weigh in with Tyson Fury. Fury is at least 6'7'' so Wlad obviously does wear lifts on occasion. If he wears them in the ring surely that can't be good for his boxing.
CreepX said on 19/Dec/16

You can tell he's more than 6ft4 just by looking at him. He has the proportions of a 6ft5+ guy.
Looks about 6ft5.5 with 6'6 Joshua.
Fred said on 18/Dec/16
Rob he sure did look wobbly against fury πŸ˜‚
Editor Rob: EXACTLY! He went from a 1cm to a 2cm insert! 😺😺
Fred said on 18/Dec/16
Rob you say it's unlikely he wears lifts while in the ring. I disagree. He may not be wearing ACTUAL lifts, but he could be layering the inside of his shoe with inserts such as Dr. Scholls inserts to give him more height.
Editor Rob: Fred, now I think of it, he did wobble about a lot during his recent fights 😜😜

I'm still surprised how many people buy lifts or elevators. I've said this before, a next door neighbour (an artist) told me he once (at 5ft 11 peak) bought and wore elevator shoes (we were talking about celebheights so the issue of lifts came up)...the last guy I would have expected, I'd put the Pope ahead of him in 'possible lift wearer' stakes 😱

Ian said on 18/Dec/16
Rob, are you suggesting that Wlad wears lifts in the ring? Seems pretty unlikely
Editor Rob: he seems to do it before getting into the ring, but in the ring...

well, it is unlikely.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Dec/16

Yeah, not a chance he'd be under 6'5 barefoot!!!
Guy said on 17/Dec/16
Do you think Wlad is even wearing lifts in his training photos with AJ from a few years back?
Guy said on 17/Dec/16
Lol....you're really adding that to the description Rob? Do you think Wlad is only 6'4? Seems ridiculous
Editor Rob: absolutely, the content of the quote is interesting.

How many have seen him barefoot...
christoph said on 17/Dec/16
Vlad being 6'4? Is that some sort of joke?
Ian said on 17/Dec/16
Judging from the amount of opponents he towered over in boxing shoes in the ring, this 6'4" suggestion seems absurd
Jam said on 16/Dec/16
Dave Allen just said on Twitter that Wlad is 6'4 barefoot. Dave is claiming to be 6'2.5 barefoot and said he was as tall as Wlad when he had shoes on and Wlad was barefoot. Rob, could this be true and Wlad has fooled us all into thinking he's 6'5 and a fraction at the very least?
Editor Rob: Jam, I think it's worth adding to Wlad's description.
Conan said on 16/Dec/16
What Arch said is correct. But a long torso could mean he wakes near 199 cm (198.7-.8) and loses an inch to get to 196.2

Guy said on 15/Dec/16
Remember people, go by the top of the head, not how the eyes compare!
Guy said on 15/Dec/16
Hardly anything in it IMO

Eye level can be misleading. AJ has a very small forehead, meaning that his eyes will be higher up than most people his height. If you look at his pics with Gary Cornish, you can see that their eyes are pretty much level, but Cornish has a longer forehead and is therefore taller.

It's hilarious that guys at that height would wear lifts, though I agree that he was lol.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/16
Yes, actually 6'5.25 does look spot on in the stare down, you can see that Joshua is taller.
qartt said on 14/Dec/16
I was wrong, never doubt the Rob

Taken at the proper angle you can see AJ got a couple of cms on Wladimir. Also if Wladimir is talker why is he looking up
qartt said on 14/Dec/16
you can judge whose taller for yourself, look the same at the press conference, Joshua looked a bit taller outside (1cm, max 2cm). I would be inclined to give Wladimir a slight upgrade 1cm. Rob any chance of 6ft 5.5 inches for Wladimir?

Looking at today's press conference, Wlad is as close in height to AJ as two people can be. I think VK is 6ft 5.5 or 6ft 5.75. I believe his 6ft 5 claim is a round down.
anon said on 14/Dec/16
They have got a few face off pics together from today at a press conference and in the ring the other night, Certain angles aj looked taller that face to face shot shows Wlad edging him out but would have had a footwear advantage, Think we will see in the ring when they fight, Its pretty clear Joshua is 6'6 maybe 6'5.75 and Wlad is a legit 6'5- The 6'5.25 listing on here seems pretty fair think joshua is taller tbh.

Wlad might wear lifts in his shoes Remember he looked similar height to Tyson Fury in face offs and when they got in the ring looked a good couple inches shorter so I wouldn't read to much into press conference pics.
Editor Rob: Klitschko goes to bed wearing lifts πŸ˜‚

actually to be fair to him, some of his shoes look familiar, wouldn't raise an eyebrow if he was a regular at Dons πŸ‘ 
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/16
I'm pretty sure out of bed he'd clear 6'6 with ease Canson. 199 is possible out of bed. This is the very lowest I could believe.
Muresan80 said on 14/Dec/16
in press conference today Klitschko is taller than Joshua by 3 cm...in the training pics in 2014 the same...no way he is 196 he is 198-199 easy...
David said on 14/Dec/16
Hi Rob, I think he actually looked more or less the size of Joshua in the stare down, some people said Klitschko looked a bit taller but it may be because of AJ's bad posture. Plus, Klitschko may have been using lifts.
Daniel said on 13/Dec/16
Once his brother Vitali told (somehow around 2000 year) that he is 200cm and his brother 198cm. And because of this missing 2cm to 200cm Wlad added it himself and because of that Vitali did the same then. You can see in some odd videos they were listed before fight as 200 cm and 202 cm.
Pls take a look at this video Click Here . It's clearly shown that Wlad can't be shorter than Wach (202cm) by 6cm.
I think he's like 6ft 5,5 after hard training/later evening and as a humble person he is makin' it additionaly rounded down.
Canson said on 13/Dec/16
Out of bed he would eclipse 6'6" or line up right at 6'6" flat worst case but more likely (198-198.5 range).

Before bed could be as low as around 6'5-6'5.25 (long torso) or as high as 6'5.25-6'5.5 like Christian listed him as well as Rampage. Key ingredient is his torso is very long so he may be losing a full inch where as a normal 6'5 person would be 3/4"-2cm

Either way no question he wouldn't dip below 195.58 if even that and more than likely a solid to strong 196er at his lowest and a few hairs taller than a guy like Howard Stern or even possibly Peter Hermann
Canson said on 13/Dec/16
@Arch: he sure did estimate him 6'6"-6'7" but that speaks more to Conan not being 6'4 and likely being 6'3 range as well. Esp since he's done the same thing with Selleck (6'4-6'5") and Neeson. He consistently inflates people because he claims 6'4". I do agree tho he's 6'5 albeit a strong one. Christian's estimate along with Robs are legit. May get down to 196 flat with a long torso or could be around 196.3-.5 range at his lowest
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 13/Dec/16
"Wladimir Klitschko's Height is 6ft 5 3/8th in (196.5 cm)"

Rob's listing is pretty much correct. He needs his lifts in order to look the same height as Anthony Joshua. Wladimir himself even admitted that he was 6ft5, so you can rule out him being a legit 6ft6. He could be 6ft5.25-6ft5.5 barefoot.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Dec/16
Conan estimated him at 6'6-6'7 here Click Here . Again he claims 6'5.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Dec/16
Rob maybe 6'5.5 would be OK for Wlad, he can often look it in fairness.
CreepX said on 12/Dec/16
This is the best overall pick that I got from the face off of the event: Click Here

Klitschko looks to be 1 inch taller then Joshua. But one can argue about the heel... so dead even then.

They are the same height. Either you put up Klitschko or downgrade Joshua... and then there is more pics of them posted here where both wears flat boxingshoes.
Muresan80 said on 12/Dec/16
Wladimir is clearly taller than Joshua ! Why he is listed at an impossible 196 cm and joshua 198 ?
Editor Rob: I think it would be interesting to see them both in boxing gear, not after one of them has been physically exerting and has lower footwear.

Plus, we know Klitchsco is a closet lift-wearer πŸ‘’
Stephen said on 11/Dec/16
Miko - please bear in mind Joshua had flat boxing shoes on, 0.5" max. Klitschko probably had dress shoes or something with a sufficient heel.
Both men are 198-199cm in my eyes, they tower over anyone 6'3 or below.
the Slav said on 10/Dec/16
He's pushing 198 cm - same height as Joshua
miko said on 10/Dec/16
1 inch taller than Joshua last night after his fight.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/16
That's a how true 6ft5 guy should look. I can accept a bit over this though, 196-197cm zone...
berta said on 21/Nov/16
197-198 he never looks more than 4 cm shorter than his brother and looks no shorter than anhony joshua
shiva 181 cms said on 8/Nov/16
He's a big guy with long torso I don't think he could shrink only 2cms even me (I'm 5'11-6' ) I shrink 2-2.5cms ,he doesn't shrink less than an inch for sure he shrinks more like 2.5-3cms

His out of bed height could be 199 cms and before bed 196-196-196.5 more probably

He could be listed 6'5.5
Chris said on 8/Nov/16
6'6
Dodd said on 30/Oct/16
Roddick, you should look up other pics from that training camp. In some Wlad looks taller, and another they look about the same. Best not to cherry-pick the photos.
Canson said on 3/Oct/16
@The Slav: that's high. He's 196 range at his lowest. 198 out of bed
the Slav said on 2/Oct/16
He's 199 cm out of bed I think. Might push 2 meters
Roddick said on 29/Sep/16
ROB take a look at this pic, Anthony joshua is listed at 6'6. I Think that Klitscho is more 6'4.5, what do you think?
Click Here
Editor Rob: there are other photos I think where they look pretty close.
Canson said on 2/Sep/16
@Johno: he'd hit both of those heights during the day. The former maybe 2 hours or 3 out of bed the latter an hour out. Rob has it right where he's 3-5 CM shorter than his brother who is either 6'7 flat or may drop to 6'6.75 (guys that size lose a full inch normally). I agree with ice and say he's probably 6'5.25 at his lowest and that he would edge Howard Stern today. Maybe prime stern was a guy who would've pulled 6'5.25 up to 3/8 but not today.
Johno said on 1/Sep/16
Can look 6'5.5, 6'5.75 to.
Canson said on 31/Aug/16
@Ice: everything you said is absolutely correct. Strong 6'5"
Ice said on 30/Aug/16
Anything under a strong 6'5 is impossible . Hes 196 cm in the afternoon and 198 cm out of bed for sure .
Ice said on 29/Aug/16
ROB do you think his brother Vitali really has him by 5 cm ?
Editor Rob: can look anywhere from 3-5cm
Alucard said on 22/Aug/16
Wladimir is a legit 6'5, he says so, pictures and him standing with other boxers confirmed this, i see no reson to doubt it... Fury is not 6'9, lol, he's about the same height as Vitali, in the 6'6 range, maybe 6'7, not more...
Arch Stanton said on 5/Aug/16
Fury really believes he's 4 inches taller and 6'9 doesn't he? Funny. At the fight it was obvious there was 2 inches MAX between them so you can rule out anything over 6'7.5.
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
Take a look at where the attacks began below and you will see "who is blaming others". had no interaction with 184guy until this

184guy said on 18/Jul/16
Do not take Canson serious guys.He obviously has a problem trying to guess guys around 6'5
Just take a look at his comments at Joe,Kobe and MJ.
Manganiello is easily 195 as I had already post some proofs and Rob has said that he is in the 195-195,5cm range and this troll insistis to put him as low as 6'4.25
Kobe is a legit 196.He is pretty similar to Peyton and had about 3-4 cms on a legit 6'3.75 Pique
But I agree with him in one point.Dwayne Wade isn't 6'3.75,more like 6'3.25 or even 6'3

shiva 181 cms said on 3/Aug/16
@ canson how did you know howard stern kb cb and wlad claim their true height did you measure them we cant simply tell their true hright just by coments wlad might have measured 6'6.5 out of bed and have measured 6'5.25-5 and rounded upto 6'6 and 6'5 respectively every charles barkely might have measured 195 at his low and rounded kobe is a different case he is measured 195 and does look it every one neednot be obssesed with height many just dont even care or measure wlad is wlad wheter he is 6'5 or 6'6 we are obssesed and debate over 1/4 and 1/2 inches we can do it by. Not blaming others
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Shiva181: and to add to that my point in the previous post to Y_Not if that is what you are referring to has less to do with when you measured more to do with it being an excuse. I've heard two or three people on this site say "well what if Kobe was measured at night". That's a classic line just because he looks taller than he is. Its a fact that height varies but even as Rob has said most of it is lost through the first 5 hrs. Meaning maybe an 1/8" difference between then and night if even that much. it's ok to accept a morning measurement that may have been used within an hour after rising, however when comparing people even if the other person measured later in the day. It's never that well it may have been two diff measurements. Instead it's well so and so measured taller so we curve the other person's height we're comparing to based on the circumstances
Canson said on 3/Aug/16
@Shiva181: yes you are correct. However, you missed my entire point. my statement I made has merit because we don't know how tall Conan or any other Joe smo on this site is unless someone reputable, has seen them. And I say reputable meaning within reason on the estimates. I don't count someone who has inflated everyone (even shorter guys 2") very seriously. Now if most match and one or two off I can see it. But in the end, that never seems to matter (and if you read over this site you will see exactly what I am saying). Tons of tons of Pictures get posted favoring people and when a good one is posted, especially if it's to show someone is shorter than they are advertised against another celeb claiming their true height, it's oh we can't see the shoes, stance is diff, poor pic, you name it." But Those same pics are valid, however, when someone is proving why the other person (like Stern or Barkley) is as tall as they claim or when trying to make the person A taller than they claim. That's what I am getting at.

If you read between the lines of what I said, it's implying that because a celeb self proclaims a height, it's easier to make a person who is "breaking the curve" and showing them up taller rather than saying well he may not really be as tall as he claims. So it should go both ways. Just because Conan or so and so claims a height or someone is listed a height in a sport. But nope It's never the other way around which in reality it's a known fact that 90% of Hollywood doesn't claim their true height. And honestly I've never heard until I came to this site people talking about people purposely downgrading themselves. Upgrading I see almost daily (shoes, lies, etc) but rarely the other way. Sure you get the occasional guy who may be 192cm rounding down to 6'3 but there is nothing wrong with it and technically that person has every right to claim either height 6'3 or "almost 6'4". And I've seen guys 6'5 1/2 or 3/4 claim 6'5 not 6'6 or 6'2 1/2 claim 6'2. Now don't know what time they were measured either but It shouldn't be a mandate for them to have to round up or to lie up in other cases just accommodate someone else wanting to be taller or round. But It's swept under the rug and ignored but it is the truth and is exactly what occurs. I mean I can look at Tyler Mane's page and other celebs that Ali Baba has seen esp the big wrestlers. People look the other way when someone like Mane isn't as tall as advertised or as even he claims. But instead of accepting the fact that Mane likely isn't what he claims it's easier to tell Ali Baba (who has shown a great deal of integrity) that he's taller than he is and is downplaying his height. So your statement to me while you made a sound point was not really in line with what I was saying. My point I was making before was to these people who claimed Barkley and stern are 6'5.5 and he has never met either and is arguing with me when I have proof from people near size with both who have met both) is that it rarely goes that direction. But when it comes to making someone shorter than they are your opinion no longer becomes and opinion. Instead it's an emphatic fact that the taller person is taller than they are when It is generally that ppl overstate their height. Two ppl have met Stern (one 6'3-scroll down the page and the other Bobby3342 who is the same height as I am at 6'4.5, and met stern). Both said he's 6'5. I saw the pic of Eric Gordon (who was measured 6'2) with stern and with footwear looks exactly 3". Now I wouldn't rule him out having been 6'5.25-.5 range in his prime but the people saying "oh he's 6'5 1/2" are implying he's downgrading himself not that he may be a fraction over 6'5. Likelihood is he was over by a fraction but not a full 1/2" at least in my opinion. Others may see it differently but to each it's own. The belief becomes genuine when someone wants to inflate another celeb because truth is none of us knew him back then. So all we can go off is opinions. We all have them just like we have other things (I digress). But my frustration comes when it's someone inflating someone's height that has claimed it just because another person claims a height and looks too short to be it next to stern. You have to look from both angles and remember this is Hollywood. Same goes with Barkley his teammates and announcers coaches have said he's 6'4 (not 6'4.75) now I doubt he's just 193 even lowest but prob not significantly taller than that. And the morning/evening difference of 3/4" is not enough to cover these difference in pictures. It's straight shoes we are talking or lying vs someone being what they truly claim.

@ canson how did you know howard stern kb cb and wlad claim their true height did you measure them we cant simply tell their true hright just by coments wlad might have measured 6'6.5 out of bed and have measured 6'5.25-5 and rounded upto 6'6 and 6'5 respectively every charles barkely might have measured 195 at his low and rounded kobe is a different case he is measured 195 and does look it every one neednot be obssesed with height many just dont even care or measure wlad is wlad wheter he is 6'5 or 6'6 we are obssesed and debate over 1/4 and 1/2 inches we can do it by.

Canson said on 23/Jul/16
@184guy: yep they can claim up or down just like you claim everyone is taller than they really are. People don't "downgrade" themselves as often as you think. It's more that people assume they are taller or want to be taller than they are so they inflate everyone else to live out their fantasy. I mean really, why Charles Barkley (a basketball player) oh and a undersized power forward basketball player would claim lower than he is (he says he's 6'5 generally) but other teammates of his and coaches and announcers have said he's only 6'4. Why Kobe would downgrade himself and same with Stern and Wlad is a mystery to me? Don't know why Wlad would say he's 6'6 out of bed and 6'5 at night if he were being deceptive. He flat out said it right there. but it's ok. Looking at any of your posts, I can see your entire agenda is to "make someone taller than they are". Bottom line 184guy you're the troll here not me

Canson said on 17/Jul/16
@y_Not: it's sad that guys like Charles Barkley Howard Stern and Kobe Bryant and Klitschko claim what they were measured and people question them because they look taller than they are due to other liars or measurers at a diff time. Sad we have to question them just because they "break the curve". And it's always an excuse here when someone doesn't look as tall. "Oh what if he measured at night. Oh we can't see the shoes. Oh we can't see the stance. The list goes on and on and on with the complete utter bull that people feed."
Canson said on 17/Jul/16
Yep. Well said Y_Not, and an intelligent comment amongst some of the dumb bs I see on this site where people automatically make someone taller because they "tower" someone else self proclaimed. To add to it like Rampage said, he's 6'6 at least out of bed, so he will edge out "morning" 6'4.75 or 6'4.5 guys who claim 6'5 as well as shoe measurers claiming it. Not to mention 6'3 guys in shoes like Conan that claim 6'4". One problem I have here and is that people take "what someone else claims they are or may have measured in shoes or even early in the morning" and use it to comparatively measure against someone else when they may be claiming their afternoon height or low. Which to me makes the comparisons null and void. It's a natural knee jerk reaction to make someone taller rather than telling the truth and saying they aren't really as tall as they are. I guess for me I'm one of those traditional barefoot measurers that doesn't believe in lying or inflating because it does nothing and is just stupid in my opinion when people exaggerate. It's like saying the sky is gold when it's blue!
Y_NOT said on 16/Jul/16
@Canson hes just a huge human being which helps him look bigger than he really is

@Rampage: he's def a very legit 198 out of bed. Well said. Easily! hes a strong 6'5. Prob around 196-196.2 at his lowest 6'5 1/8-1/4 and that's prob him losing damn near a full inch on a day. He looks like he has long torso

@Ice: what don't you get about it? You're 6'2 and still want to be taller. I see your point but even at your height you are a solid tall and a very good height that is a good quality of life esp for someone who isn't a pro athlete who doesn't need his height for anything
Canson said on 28/Jun/16
@Berta: I'm going off what he claimed he was 6'6 out of bed 6'5 at night. But I agree anyone can "look" taller. One thing I've noticed in my life is that rarely do people downgrade their own height an entire inch. Usually they upgrade. He may lose an inch in a day like he says or could be where Rob has him above At night which is perfectly valid as well. In addition to proportions being different and very hard to judge, people have claimed shoes and bs'd height so much over the recent years that any 6'5-6'5 1/2 guy automatically is now 6'6 to 6'7 whether they claim it or not whether it's true or not. I'm sure even for you (since you don't lose much height) that you get guessed at 6'6 pretty often because you end the day around 6'5 3/8. I know because I end exactly an inch shorter at around 6'4 3/8 and get guessed 6'5 by people even close in height if they measure themselves in the morning or if they round or inflate themselves. And those are people who are more honest that don't claim shoes. They don't know any better in some cases or automatically assume because they round themselves up and want to be taller that that is the case for everyone else when it's not. But someone like Wlad may lose more height than even you do I do (I lose 2cm and go from exactly 196 to 194-194.1. You have a strong back and it prob helps but even people with more muscle prob still lose height throughout more than you do

Yeah I think so too. 6'6, maybe 6'6.25 out of bed and 196cm at the end of the day for this guy.
@ CreepX
I think Hughie Fury is 6'5 max. during the day.
It's really hard to decide whether he's actually as tall as AJ. The difference must be less than 0.5 inch.

Johno is a jester for a lot of guys on here, but I'm noticed that when there's obviously legit very tall, imposing guys like this he can at least admit that they're huge. Based on some other examples Johno would have been saying Vlad was max 6'4. I'm glad that for once you're giving a decent estimate. I'm quite sure he comfortably hits 6'6 out of bed and this is his lowest.
Canson said on 14/Apr/16
Berta: I think he looks 6'6 range because so many 6'4 1/2 guys and strong 6'4 guys who measure in the morning even 6'3 guys claim to be 6'5. Add to that he's a strong 6'5 prob just where Rob has him at his lowest maybe a hair Lower like 1/8 on demanding days

yos said on 26/Jan/16
I'd put my money on Wlad actually being the 6'6" that he is billed as. Looked bigger than a genuine 6'5" in Tony Thompson and towered over Haye. I reckon he did wear lifts in the build up to the Fury fight which made him 6'7"-6'8" tall.
Guy said on 9/Jan/16
Do we know that he typically wears lifts? Maybe he was just wearing them to try and unsettle Fury--a guy significantly taller than most his opponents and taller than him. You could be 7 feet tall but if you're fighting someone 7'3" and don't want them to get the confidence of being taller then wearing lifts doesn't seem odd even though you're very tall yourself.
Jam said on 1/Jan/16
Rob, did you watch the Klitschko-Fury fight? If so, what did you think the height difference was in the ring?
Editor Rob: just the highlights. I think a couple of inches between them was visible.

Wlad is definitely not 199 cm.
Might be that a few minutes out of bed but otherwise he's 196-197 during the day. 199 cm is freaking damn huge
176.2 cm (5ft 9.37in) said on 20/Dec/15
Think a flat 6'5 is closer to the truth because he has a quite good posture and loves lifts.. Dunno one of them who would downgrade himself even by the fraction of an inch :)
Editor Rob: those who you least expect to wear lifts, are sometimes the first you should raise your eyebrow at...

Tyson Fury a big liar and hes not over 2inch taller than Wladmir
Canson said on 10/Dec/15
By his own admission he is about 6'6 in the morning out of bed. someone his size esp with his longer torso and average size legs for his height will easily lose close to if not a full inch throughout the day. So it's not unfathomable that he is only 6'5 at his lowest. However, I think the real Problem is, While most people desire to be "taller", I think height reporting has gotten way out of control these days and some of these insecure people in the world (not necessarily this site) have made it a belief and a mandate to round at a half inch (sometimes even a bit less) for everyone and not just them. That being said, Wlad is 6'5 as long as he is 6'5-6'5.99 for the majority of the day, which he is. meaning, even if he's 6'5 1/2 he is not "required" to say he is 6'6".

Just an opinion of mine and some of the taller guys here on this site like Bobby, James, Ali Baba, etc will agree with me as our heights are constantly being inflated by others for selfish gain when we are already content and don't have a desire to be any taller!!!!

Hughie looks about half to an inch taller than Wlad in real life.

I think we can forgive a 20 year old over emphasising the point in a World Title fight that Wlad is clearly shorter than him.

I guess key point here is how much taller is Tyson than Hughie?

2+ inches but not 3.

which would tally with Fury being the same height as 6'8+ David Price.

It seems mad we are debating if these guys are 205 or 207cm ... they must be in the top 1% of human height, yet the key cm or two is critical to us!!!

Wladimir claims 6'5" though looks closer to 6'6"
I doubt if he could have 3 inch lifts in his shoes. He was actually slightly taller than fury. Fury did look 1 -2 inches taller in the ring. Possibly just over 6'7"
Every time Tyson fury is interviewed he talks about being 6'9". He clearly isn't and klitschko was emphasising this by appearing taller than fury at weigh in. Furys cousin Hugh claims 6'7, maybe him and Tyson measured each other

Hahahaha very funny
Even a guy that is almost 6ft 6 needs to use lifts
Scott said on 4/Dec/15
Klitschko has been wearing lifts for years.

Fury is the first opponent to call him out on it though.

Against Pulev they looked the same height at the first press conference and in the ring ... but at the weigh in Wlad looked taller.

In the ring Fury looked 2-3 inches taller but at the weigh in Wlad was taller.

What an idiot. Quite sad when you are almost 6'6.

I wonder now he has been exposed if he'll wear his special shoes for his final weigh in?

Wlad definitely wearing platforms/lifts. Here they are in boxing gear Fury is easily taller. Fury is around 6'7-6'7.5

wladimir and vitali are fudging there heights in the other direction, there was as picture 6 years back when haye was getting ready to take on that giant boxer and he was standing next to a measured cardboard cutout of Nikolai Valuev he came up to the 6'3 mark with his boxing gear on subtract the half inch footwear and he was coming in at 6'2 1/2. yet in pictures wladimir is a solid four inches taller than haye, 6'5 claim lol. And vitali is not under 6'8 he makes legit 6'4 guys look short, check him out with 6'4 Shannon Briggs and you will still see quite a big gap (10cm~4inches. ) These guys no what there doing it's advantages to them for other fighters to think there smaller than they actually are, haye is on the upper end of 6'2, wladimir is on the upper end of 6'6 and vitali is exactly 6'8, lol at 6'5 and 6'7 and besides vitali is only a solid inch taller than wladimir definately isn't 2" between them

He looked 4 inches taller than Haye. Haye looks over 6'2 with you, should you not consider changing .25 to .75?
Arch Stanton said on 30/Nov/15
Wladimir is a clever guy, all about intimidating the opponent. I can well believe that he might wear lifts at times to pull off looking even more imposing. It might also explain why at times he could look easily 4 inches taller than David Haye.
Big T said on 30/Nov/15
Has Wlad been confirmed as a lift-wearer? It seems odd for him to only claim 6'5" then. Perhaps he is 6'5" and change and wears lifts to make himself look 6'6.5" pre-fight, and then claims to only be 6'5", thereby making all other boxers (who are generally overlisted in the first place) look like insecure liars who are 2-3 inches shorter than claimed?
Markus said on 30/Nov/15
Klitschko is obviously taller than 1,96 m. His official height of 1,98 m seems to be right.
hulk said on 30/Nov/15
uncle fury said wladimir was using 'platforms' in the build up to the fight. in the ring Tyon clearly was 2/3 inches taller, just look at when the fighter come face to face in the ring
Jimbob said on 29/Nov/15
Padding his shoes according to Hughie Fury, I don't think so, looked just like well supported everyday running shoes, couldn't see 2 inch difference in height during the fight.
Brah said on 29/Nov/15
Anyone who saw the fight (flat boxing shoes) could see Fury was at least 2 inches taller than Klitshko. Looks like he was padding his shoes.
The Exorcist said on 29/Nov/15
Wladimir lost because he was wearing 4" lifts in his boots. ;P
Jimbob said on 28/Nov/15
I don't thing Hughie Fury looks 6feet6.
Cowell88 said on 28/Nov/15
I love how the delusional people like :D below are saying Wlad is padding his shoes to look taller than '6'9' Tyson. Let's get this straight, even with lifts Wlad would be appearing 6'6 in standard trainers, like in the picture. This means Tyson is 6'6 MAX. He is lying by a clear 3". If anyone in the 5'5-6'2 range did this you guys would eat them for breakfast, but because this guy is already very tall you let your delusions flourish that he is some massive giant.

The guy is very tall, but 6'9? In his dreams.
