How tall is Wladimir Klitschko

Wladimir Klitschko's Height

6ft 5 ¼ (196.2 cm)

Ukrainian Heavyweight Boxer. On a few occasions (BBC/Conan O'Brien) he has said he is only "Six Five". Fellow boxer Tyson Fury commented on a Stallone-esque trick that Wladimir may be using: "He had platforms in his boots too. If you look at the weigh in he was the same size as me but he's 6'5 and I'm 6'9." Another Boxer - David Allen - also chimed in on Wlad's 'Little Helpers', saying "He got his lifts in again, wlad is no taller than 6ft 4 bare foot. He isn't much taller than me honestly I couldn't believe it when I was stood next to him. Barefoot 6ft 2 and half of I'm. Being honest he was barefoot I had trainers in we was the same height so he is 6ft 4". In 2018, Wladimir also claimed "I’m 6’6, 1,98".

He is well above 6'5, 196.5cm i'd say.
Canson said on 23/Mar/20
@Dream: yea I’d have him at 196 as opposed to 195. A guy like Lewis May have been 195 peak but even he could’ve been 194-195 like Barkley
Dream said on 21/Mar/20

Like here's Wladimir with Lennox -- Click Here

Charles Barkley with Lennox -- Click Here

Usain Bolt with Lennox -- Click Here

I agree he's a true 6'5" range guy. Definitely not 195 cm range. Wlad looks the tallest of the three, since he's slouching the most.
Canson said on 20/Mar/20
@Dream: he could be what Rob lists him here. But his 6’5 claim means he’s a true 6’5” range guy 6’5-6’5.5 as opposed to 6’4.5-6’5 or as opposed to someone my size who only wakes up to 6’5” or Someone who only measured it in shoes
Dream said on 18/Mar/20
I think he's a strong 6'5". He looked visibly taller than Charles Barkley and Usain Bolt, with Lennox Lewis.
Mickie said on 17/Mar/20
Fwiw I think Shannon the cannon Briggs is actually a solid 6'3" guy. Let's go champ!
Canson said on 13/Mar/20
@Editor Rob: would you consider giving Shannon Briggs a page?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure
FightGuy22 said on 7/Mar/20
Rob, how tall does Shannon Briggs (listed at 6’4 on google) look here compared to Wladimir?
Click Here
Editor Rob
I think Briggs is a guy who could be in 6ft 2-3 zone
Canson said on 4/Mar/20
@184guy: looks like Rob guessed AJ almost to the letter with his estimate
184guy2 said on 4/Mar/20
after a bit of research I would rule out 6'5.5 for Wlad
6'5-6'5.25 is his range . Looked at least 2cm shorter than AJ after their fight , both at their very low with simillar footwear
Canson said on 16/Feb/20
@Dream: I’m curious tho. I wonder exactly how much he loses. He appears to have a very long torso. Maybe he wakes over 6’6 and is just over 6’5 or maybe he’s 6’6 and comes down to a solid 6’5”
Nik Ashton said on 8/Feb/20
@ Robbe - It’s incredible because many people never tell the truth!
Nik Ashton said on 5/Feb/20
@ Canson - Millions should take a 🍁 from his 📖!
Dream said on 5/Feb/20
@Canson Truthfully, I have no problem with Wlad claiming 6'5" and 6'6", since he will be both heights, on a certain time of the day, barefooted. Same thing with Bo.
Robbe said on 5/Feb/20
@Nik Ashton, what's so incredible about that? He just stated what he is. Here with 6'6.5 Robert Helenius Click Here
Canson said on 4/Feb/20
@Nik: that’s honesty. I commend him for it. Maybe Fury should take a page from his book
Nik Ashton said on 3/Feb/20
It’s incredible that he claimed to be only “Six Five”!
Mickie said on 2/Feb/20
@Leart - I wouldn't call that a non-biased angle.
Leart said on 1/Feb/20
Here is a non-biased angle which shows Wladimir dwarf the 6ft 5 boxer Anthony Joshua, all of your listings seem correct except Wladimir and Fury. Click Here
Canson said on 25/Jan/20
@Leart: Wlad has said on record that he is 6’6 out of bed and 6’5 in the evening. He’s claimed 6’5 as his actual height multiple times.
Leart said on 23/Jan/20
Wlad is 6 foot 6 no doubt. He is taller than Joshua, everytime they've met Klitschko edges him out by a lot and he is as tall as his brother Vitali who is listed as 200cm (6 foot 6) and he always has his head hanging down to make himself look shorter he has a long neck and when he stands upright he dwarfs Joshua.
Canson said on 5/Dec/19
@Dream; could also be that Bo is lankier and thinner than Wlad
Dream said on 5/Dec/19
I'm beginning to think Bo could be a fraction taller than Wladimir, based on how Wladimir shrinks more, and the evidence, that Wladimir Klitschko wears lifts, as some people don't want to admit.

On the other hand, Bo doesn't usually wear lifts and he still gives an extremely tall impression.
Emil said on 23/Nov/19

How tall would you estimate this guy who's posing with Wlad? Near 6'3?
Editor Rob
If he has a little worse posture and his head is a bit further away I could still see near 6ft 3 as a possibility for him.
Dream said on 19/Nov/19

Honestly, it would be difficult to spot a difference between them.

1/8 of an inch would also be what they measure from each other.
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Dream: I have Benjamin taller
Canson said on 17/Nov/19
@Dream: maybe 1/4
Dream said on 17/Nov/19

It's possible. it would be a tough showdown. However, I think Owen might be a fraction taller than Ralf, a bit, when push comes to shove.
Canson said on 14/Nov/19
@Dream: I think Moeller would be closer with Owen Benjamin. 6’5.5 vs 6’5.75 perhaps peak heights
Dream said on 13/Nov/19

for sure.

With Ralf Moeller, Wladimir Klitschko looks taller than Joe Manganiello. With Lennox Lewis, Wlad is also definitely taller than Charles Barkley.
Canson said on 11/Nov/19
Dream said on 20/Aug/19

Wait! You met Wladimir in person already?! Was he at least this listing when you saw him?
Editor Rob
No, I was just talking about Joe.

I do think Wlad is very close to his listing. He wakes up to 6’6”. If he isn’t this he is at least 6’5” and possibly doesn’t dip below 196cm. Joe Mangianello in the other hand falls below his listing imho. Rob said 6’4.5/6’5 around lunch. I know a poster here Max met him and said at 6’5 1/2 that Joe was an inch shorter. 6’4.5 may be ok for Mangianello afternoon height
Dream said on 3/Nov/19
With Lennox Lewis, Wladimir looks a lot taller than Charles Barkley.

Dream said on 10/Oct/19

Just a what if scenario. In your head, Who are you more likely to meet? This guy or Bo Burnham? Or a tie?
Editor Rob
I think it is unlikely either, though never say never - I did manage to see a few decent boxing names over the years.
Dream said on 9/Sep/19

Now that you mentioned it before, I think you’re right: I also noticed how large Klitschko’s Torso is. It seems a little longer than his inseam.

On the Contrary, Burnham doesn’t have a large torso. Rather, his legs are rather long, a bit longer than his torso.

Basically, it’s more likely Klitschko will shrink a full inch, while Burnham won’t shrink as much, throughout the day.
Dream said on 6/Sep/19
@Canson Taller than Manganiello? Easily. Proportion-wise, I think Wladimir might look 6’6” to many people. In terms of tougher look, Wlad wins that category.

I think what makes Wlad, a hair, less intimidating is his rather high pitch voice.
Canson said on 5/Sep/19
@Dream: I would’ve immediately said Wlad would be the more intimidating of the two and Wlad is definitely the taller of the two.
Dream said on 23/Aug/19

Oh! My bad! I was about to say! I was like “Oh! That explains why Klitschko hasn’t gotten a tiny fraction downgrade!”
Dream said on 20/Aug/19

Wait! You met Wladimir in person already?! Was he at least this listing when you saw him?
Editor Rob
No, I was just talking about Joe.
Dream said on 18/Aug/19

Who do you think has the better 'proportions' for being more intimidating, Wladimir Klitschko or Joe Manganiello? I'm betting Klitschko.
Editor Rob
Vladimir might have a more 'tougher' look, though he's not that kind of guy and Joe isn't that intimidating in person.

He's got a naturally higher pitched voice which he lowers a bit on screen...took me by surprise when talking with him at the autograph desk!
Dream said on 18/Aug/19

Both of them would definitely be taller than the overlisted Jimmy Butler, honestly. IMO!
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
@Dream: I think Wlad might lose an inch. He may be 6’6 or a hair over out of bed 6’5 or 6’5 1/8 at a low. Bo may too but I doubt it. Torso isn’t as long. I think 6’6-6’6 1/8 out of bed 6’5.25- 6’5 3/8 at a low. Your estimates are right on with those
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/19
Vitali is never 2" taller than Wlad not even 4.4cm and the max is 3.8-4cm. Bo Burham is an easy 197cm guy and Wlad is listed accurate at 6'5 1/4.
Dream said on 10/Jul/19

I definitely agree that’s Bo is at least 6’5 1/4” at a low. Honestly, Bo can look 6’5 1/2” at times. There was another episode where I saw Bo and Robbie Amell (who Rob has met): Bo dwarfed him like he made Robbie Amell look 5’9”. (This was from an episode I watched)

Click Here

As for Wlad, he varies: Sometimes he looks closer to 6’6”. Other times, just 6’5”. I think the listings could be like this:

Bo Burnham: 6’5 3/8”
Wladimir Klitschko: 6’5 1/8”
Canson said on 8/Jul/19
@Dream: it’s possible both are a little over the mark but at the same time, I can almost guarantee that Bo is. I wouldn’t go any lower than his current listing. And you remember that we both told Rob that when he had him listed a bit Lower that he came out with that. 6’5 6’6 on a good day. Honestly He looked too low before but now he may be his listing but no lower. Now Wlad at times I’m unsure of. He may just be a flat 6’5 and lose an inch since he did claim he was 6’6 out of bed. And he has a long torso
Canson said on 7/Jul/19
@Dream: I can see Wlad dipping to 6’5 flat now that I’ve seen more and analyzed more
Dream said on 7/Jul/19

Truthfully, I would give Bo the edge, but it would be extremely close. At first glance, Wladimir looks intimidating. (He does have the right proportions of a Six Foot Five Guy, honestly.)

However, If I’m going by footwear, I would give Bo a tiny edge. Wladimir, at times, tends to wear lifts to make himself look even more big.

Bo tends to wear light footwear or even socks and he still gives a very big impression, even with, at times, his awkward posture.
Canson said on 6/Jul/19
@Dream: they’d either be the same or Bo a fraction taller. I can see Wlad with the longer torso dipping to maybe 196 6’5 1/8 whereas Bo I doubt goes much lower than Christian. 6’5.25 is probably his low
Dream said on 6/Jul/19
@Canson @Christian

I asked Rob this already. However, In your personal view, who would you give the edge to: Wladimir Klitschko or Bo Burnham?
Dream said on 29/Jun/19
With Samuel L Jackson, Wladimir looks taller than Kobe Bryant.

This listing is fine. He holds extremely well with Anthony Joshua. Sometimes, he can even look taller, with bigger footwear, or camera advantage, or even military posture.
Boxing fan 07 said on 18/Jun/19
Klitschko is 6’5”. I cant believe he only looks 1.5 to 1.75” shorter than Fury. I think a solid 2.5” shorter.
Duhon said on 15/Jun/19
So what was the background for this picture was Wlad really wearing lifts here? Click Here

TBH I don't think Usyk is any taller than Bellew.

@Shane: 6’4 seems too low but 6’5 I doubt he’s much over that at a low
Shane Gray said on 29/May/19
We really dont know how tall he is unless we measure him. Someone claiming a height as we know does not necessarily mean if is so. He has also been accused of wearing lifts. I've heard he can dip to 6'4" flat barefoot. Who knows.
berta said on 28/Apr/19
i actually believe he could be closer to 197. He is the same height as me, very close
Gman39 said on 12/Apr/19
Oleksandr Usyk, the guy next to Wlad in that photo, is about 6'3. He may have edged Tony Bellew in the face off's he had with him.

Could be over 6ft 3, but maybe not 6ft 4

@Shashank: agreed
K.A 188 said on 25/Mar/19
Rob,seriously why would a big 6ft5 man where lifts? Like wtf? Or is it some sort mind games to intimidate his opponents?
Editor Rob
Yes, I think that's what he maybe did, just to throw the other guy off maybe, or add a bit of intimidation in the build-up to the fight.
Shashank 6'3 3/8 said on 16/Mar/19
Could be same as Christian
Crane said on 15/Mar/19
Agree with this list, Rob. Wlad in his Prime was a solid 6'5.
Tunman said on 1/Mar/19
11"at only 6'1.5"?Lol,and no way your head is 10" if you're only 170.Average for a 5'9man is 9-9.25.So for 5'7range probably near 9" for a 6'1-2 probably 9.5 or 9.75 and for a 6'5-6 probably very close to 10".Just remember that a head 0.5" over the average is really big.11"head is very likely for someone 7"+
Gman39 said on 13/Feb/19
Stadiometer fantasy showdown #2. Wlad vs. peak Hulk Hogan? I think they would be very close.
Editor Rob
I give Hulk the edge.
Dream said on 2/Feb/19

In a fantasy stadiometer show down, who would you give the edge to, Wladimir Klitschko or Bo Burnham?
Editor Rob
Both could be argued 6ft 5.25 or 5.5...but neither I would say were 6ft 6. It's a toss up really - though both also have claimed 6ft 5 as a low too.

Canson said on 6/Jan/19
@Mohammed: agreed 198-198.5 out of bed and 196 at a low. Long torso. But the average for him wouldn’t be as high as 197 it would probably be more like 196-196.5 that he’d carry throughout the day since the loss is more gradual earlier in the day
mohammad said on 23/Dec/18
It is absolutely impossible , that he would measure less than 6 foot 5 . So the listing is excellent .

I believe , he measures 198 cm straight out of bed , and 196 cm before going to bed .

I give him 197 cm .
Jordan87 said on 19/Dec/18
@ Dream ( 5'9.5")

"Wladimir is a prime example of a strong 6’5” guy. He has the right proportions of what a real 6’5” should look like. "

Stop Making me agree with you.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 13/Dec/18

That means you have an average sized head for your height. Didn't you mention once about you having a small head though?
Canson said on 10/Dec/18
@Christian: i measured properly and it’s about 9.6”
Dream(5'9.5") said on 10/Dec/18
Sometimes, Wladimir could look taller than Anthony Joshua. Other times, Joshua edges Wladimir out. Most of the time Joshua looks taller but not by much.

Wladimir is a prime example of a strong 6’5” guy. He has the right proportions of what a real 6’5” should look like.

Bo Burnham, Howard Stern, and Bo Svenson are other examples of strong 6’5”ers. Though in terms of proportions, Bo (Burnham) comes off as the ‘lanky’ type, rather than the intimidating presence Wladimir has.
Aswin Kini MK said on 9/Dec/18
Apologies, i got my data wrong, a person's head is about 1/8th of his/her height. But i still stand with my point, Wlad's height is a solid 10+ inches. There is a minimum of 9.5 inches between a 5foot-8ish Amir Khan and Wladmir. Having seen his weigh-in photos and poses against various 6foot 5 boxers, i can comfortably say Wlad is a weak- 6foot, 6-inch guy. He is atleast an inch taller than 6foot 5 boxers such as Tony the Tiger Thompsons and towers over 6 foot 2 inchers like David Haye. I am sorry to say this. Unless he is measured at 6 foot 5.25, i would always maintain he ia above 6 foot 5.5 and i have seen enough to believe so. I do understans Rob has his reasons. Hence, i rest my case
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Dec/18

In Prowse's case, his head seems to be big even for a 6'6" guy. I'd say 10.25"-10.5" range or so. Btw, didn't you once say that you have a small head for your height, like 9"?
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
@Christian: I look at certain people like David Prowse that are said to have been 5” taller than they are now and I question. That’s until I see the size of his head. His head looks like that of a much taller guy and almost looks abnormal with a guy not thats no longer even half foot taller than Rob in reality.
Canson said on 6/Dec/18
I think he and Joshua both look close enough to their listed heights here on the site. If anything maybe give or take 1/8-1/4” tops
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/18

The average ideal head length is ÷ 8 of a given height, so that means a 6 footer would on average have a 9 inch head. The average for someone like me or Wladimir would be 9.6"-9.7", which makes sense since I consider my head to be average and mine's 9.7". And Wladimir's seem to be around 10". 12" would be abnormally huge for someone our height. Your 1/6 ratio is wrong. It's more like 1/8.
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Christian: maybe that was taking it too far but it would suck big time. I would take 6’0 over 6’7”. Id probably even take 5’11” over it being it’s easier to add height than lose. You could throw an orthotic in and wear thick shoes (not even lifts) which make you appear taller (if desired)
Aswin Kini MK said on 4/Dec/18
Rob, I am not sure about Wladmir's head being lesser than 10.5. The reason is that an average 6 foot has a minimum 9.5-inch head. At least, in India, that is the case. There are some people like me who have abnormally large-head-body proportions. Considering that Wladmir is five inches taller than 6 foot, he should be having a minimum 10-11-inch head. I kept a conservative estimate at 10.5 inches because that is the normal proportion (I am saying this because my brother is a legit 6 foot 1.5 guy with a 11" head). If Wladmir's head is smaller than 10 inches, it would be very disproportionate to his entire head making him look odd. Maybe it's just my opinion, but I would like others to weigh in. Scientifically, a person has a head which is generally 1/6 of his total body size. If Wladmir is even 6 foot 5.25, which amounts to 77.25 inches. His head size has to be a minimum 12 inches - 10.5 at the minimum.

If my assumption is correct, your head size should be anywhere around 9-9.5 inches. Please do consider these calculations. These are not assumptions, but rather average estimates gathered from statistics.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Dec/18

While I wouldn't hate life at 6'6" or 6'7", or even taller, it would be quite incovenient. If I had to choose between being 6'7" or 6'0", I'd go with 6'0".
Aswin Kini MK said on 3/Dec/18
Rob, I do not understand you sometimes. Look at the photo of Amir Khan standing near Wladmir Klitchko shown on the top of the page here and tell me truly, is there just a 9.25" inch difference between a 5 foot 8 Amir Khan and a supposedly, 6 foot 5.25 Klitschko???? I am 170 cms tall and have a 10-inch head. Wladmir Klitschko is definitely a strong 6-footer maxing at 6 foot 6. His head is a minimum 10.5-11 inches long. Amir Khan's head is just hitting Wlad's head. There is a strong difference, perhaps 10 inches here. Please tell me how.
Editor Rob
Well I don't think his head is as big as 10.5 inches. On average many people would think of Klitschko as 6ft 5.5, which he can look a fair bit.
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Robbe: that should say something tho lol. Taller guys know when to say when as far as height goes. I would hate life if I were 6’6” let alone 6’7” barefoot

@Tunman: if I did it’s very minimal but losing a mm or two isn’t unheard of in your 30s especially if you’ve got issues with neck or back
Tunman said on 8/Nov/18
I doubt you've lost anything if you're only 36 unless you were injured.It's extremely rare for men to start losing any height before 45.Actually someone like Chuck Norris may very well have managed to keep his peak until 65.Well there is a chance of losing height if you're seriously overweight in which case the strain could effect the spine but I doubt it's your case.
Robbe said on 31/Oct/18
I remember pretty well what was said in the deleted Sky Sports news. Reporter said "You are very tall, like 6'7? Wlad said: No no! Don't make me a giant! I'm 6'6 in the morning, and 6'5 in the evening. So i'm 6'6 now."

So the news must have been aired early in the morning.
Canson said on 29/Oct/18
@Robbe: he also claimed 6’5 on Conan

@Dream: Lewis is also older than Wlad. A peak Lewis was around 6’4 1/2 so Wlad at 6’5.25 I could buy like Rob has him listed here
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18
If we're going by first impression, alone while he's standing, Wladimir could 'easily' fool the average person into thinking he's taller than he is.

He certainly has the right proportions of having an intimidating presence.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Oct/18

Anthony is taller than Wladimir.

Although they are very close. However, Joshua edges out Klitschko, most of the time.

C'mon wlad is clearly taller than Lennox Lewis at the WBC convention in kiev by over an inch! No way he is shorter than Audley Harrison and Anthony Joshua!

I wouldn't be surprised if Wladimir Klitschko would get 'mistook' for 6'7" by some people, even if that seems far stretched.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 5/Aug/18
Rob, would you say could measure slightly taller, Wladimir Klitschko or Peyton Manning (peak)?
Editor Rob
I think at times Wladimir can seem a more intimidating presence.
Canson said on 19/Jul/18
@Dream: possible that Christian May edge him but Christian also gets down to 6’5.25 himself pretty often. He uses the 6’5 3/8 as he falls between 1/4-3/8 a lot. I used to use the 3/8 as well but not sure if I’ve lost a couple mm in height (in older than Christian at 36) but I have short hair now as well. I am more like 1/4-1/3” at a low now if anything but if you stood us back to back the consensus would be that Christian edges me by an inch and that he’s 6’5” if I claimed 6’4” which I would too
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Jul/18

Probably Christian, but 1/8ths of an inch is too difficult to spot. If anyone would call it out, they must have some kind of eyes zooming in!
Canson said on 13/Jul/18
@Dream: definitely arguable. He would measure that at some point for sure. Easy 6’6 out of bed. I’d wonder who would be taller between he and Christian. Maybe similar or Wlad may be 1/8” shorter but they’d look virtually the same in person
Gman39 said on 11/Jul/18
He is 6'6 in the morning and 6'5 in the evening. Doesn't that qualify him as 6'5.5? It's really tough to split Wlad and Joshua, they seem as close in height as two human beings can be!
Canson said on 8/Jul/18
@Reece: I’ve seen him say 6’6” in the AM and 6’5 evening. He’s claimed both
Canson said on 27/Jun/18
@Dream: personally I would go with half inch. 6’5 1/8 (196) vs 6’5 5/8 (197/197.5) but Wlad does look taller at times because he wears lifts or pics favor
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Jun/18
Indeed. I did see some photos of him and Anthony Joshua. 60% of the time, Anthony looks taller than Wladimir, but Wladimir can sometimes look slightly taller than Anthony 40% of the time.

Anthony would be the taller of the two, but it's definitely not much between them.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 25/Jun/18
Is 6'5 3/8" arguable at times?

At times he has looked that near 6ft 5.5 range, so it's not entirely improbable

@Myself: wlad has a long torso for sure. Guys like that may lose a full inch in height which is why he claimed 6’6 (in the AM) and 6’5 (evening). He may be over 6’6 out of bed even. Whereas for me with a 35ish inseam I lose about 2cm some days 3/4”. My norm is 195.7-.8 before bed 193.7-193.9
Myself said on 22/May/18
@Canson How long is your inseam? Mine is about 88 cm, between 34 and 35 inches, for 192/192.3 height as the low. (i shrink between 2 to 2.3 cm usually) I think i have a pretty balanced torso to leg ratio, maybe a little longer torso for my height but i'm not sure. My hip bone is pretty large, so maybe that also contributes to the torso.

Anyway, looks like Vladimir has a very long neck, which makes a huge change when he is in a bad forward-head posture; In one of the videos linked by a user below, you can clearly see how his shoulder level is noticeably lower than that of AJ, but with the neck fully extended, he looked at least the same height to me, if not taller, or at least not much shorter.
Reece said on 12/May/18
Wlad claimed on Twitter he is 6 foot 6 198cm 2 days ago. But he usually claims he is 6 foot 5. What do you guys think? If that is really true then Fury has got to be upper end of 6 foot 8?
Arch Stanton said on 25/Apr/18
He can look a bit taller but a genuine 6'5.25 is massive of course!
Canson said on 15/Apr/18
@Bazza: I can lose a full 2cm now at 36 years old. I wake to 195.7 or 195.8 some days (usually 195.7) and come down to 193.7 these days. If I’m on my feet longer stretches at night for maybe 5 hours extra without a break I can get all the way to 193.1. I can lose 2.6cm in a day at an extreme low but I’ve only measured that low a handful of times that I’ve measured and it’s a truly compressed height because my back is compressed and I can feel it. But Klitschko is an inch taller than me perhaps. Maybe less but he apparently has a longer torso than I do. I’m built like Michael Jordan with an average torso and very long legs for a 6’4-6’4.5 guy. Wlad may only lose 3/4 as well. He may very well be what rob lists him on a normal day and only wake 6’6
Emil said on 15/Apr/18

Floyd Mayweather's height was listed as 1.68 meter during the 1996 Olympics.
Those measurements are not always updated
Emil said on 15/Apr/18
He never drops below 196 that's for sure. His normal now is probably just a tad below 197 cm
Bazza said on 14/Apr/18
It's easy to lose an inch over a busy day.i wake up 189 and am usually 187 average evening after a normal steady day but can be 186-186.5 easily after a day of working and exercise.
Canson said on 13/Apr/18
He is 6’6” out of bed as he acknowledged. However, he stated that he’s 6’5” in the evening. Maybe he loses a full inch or it could’ve been a matter of him measuring at that height later in life or after a more demanding day. He also could be rounding down from 6’5.25 that Rob has him listed. Either way, I doubt he’s any higher than Rob lists him here but doubt he’s as low as 6’4.5 or 6’4.75. He is likely a full 6’5” at a low or maybe a solid 196 cm (6’5 1/8).
dje said on 15/Mar/18
Here with 198cm tall Hrgovic Click Here.
For me Klitschko is definitely 6'6 in the morning.
Canson said on 28/Feb/18
If Wlad dips to 195 it means he is one of those guys who dips 3cm from a morning height. He said himself 6’6 in the morning 6’5 evening which looks believable to be honest. But 195-196 or 196 looks more inline than 195 flat would on him. He looks at least a legit 6’5 no less and quite honestly can look a strong 6’5
CreepX said on 28/Feb/18

I think you put to much stock in that picture. They looked more similar in height when they took a picture in front of the camera. Joshua is naturally taller by posture with long legs and short neck. Wlad has long neck and torso that he needs to strech out to give his full height.

This footage is the best of the two of them measuring up. And i dont see Wlad in lifts compared to AJ from fight night. Same height differential.

Egven if Klitscko was labeled at 195 cm in the olympics. It could have been older measurments taken from his amateur record at 18 or 19 years of age.
Robbe said on 20/Feb/18
Anyone know how tall is this guy standing next to Wlad? Looks at least 6'7". He's name is Alexander Kokhanovskyy.

Canson said on 19/Feb/18
@Robbe: that’s the same for me. I have not gained since I was about 18 probably. I was a solid 6’4” or so (same exact height as my father was back then) when I was in high school when I got to College I got measured 6’4.5 or at least was told I was by the strength and conditioning coach on my team. It could’ve been because it was earlier in the Day or been rounded up from 3/8 not sure. I got told 6’4.75 once too but I can believe that being early morning now that I think about it. Because we were measured early morning sometimes then a couple late morning or afternoon. I would trust my Doctor tho and I would get right around 6’4.5 (6’4 3/8- 5/8) but had thicker hair too at one point than I do now. each time wasn’t till I came to this site that I saw the difference.
Canson said on 18/Feb/18
@Robbe: that’s possible. He may actually not even be a full 6’6” out of bed. May be 6’5.75 and said 6’6” in the morning like he did in the interview. Other possibility is with his long torso that he loses a full inch or more from 6’6 to 6’5 or 6’6 to 6’4.75
Robbe said on 18/Feb/18
@Canson, yeah, its very rare to gain height after you hit 20 years. Im exactly the same height now as i was when i left the army. The odds Wlad has gained 2-3cm moore height after 1996, is quite small. He was indeed 195cm when he won the Olympic gold in 1996.

Click Here

We all know Wlad loves lifts, so he can look 198cm in many pics, but the truth is he is no moore than 195-196cm. Yet he managed to edge out Tyson Fury with his stuffed sneakers, which is worth mentioning. He is an artist!
Reece said on 17/Feb/18
@Robbe. Even in that picture Wlad still looks taller than 6-4.5 or 6-4 3/4. Wlad was listed as that at 20. Then they started 198cm listing, Wlad is only a tiny bit shorter and his posture is worse. He could even pull off as much as 197cm 6-5 1/2.
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
@Reece: that is very rare someone grows until 25. Most men stop around 18 or 19-20 at best. I have been the same height since 18 as are most people I know. Maybe a 19 or 20 here or there but 25 is absurd. And Wlad is an athlete he’s measured regularly enough so at his age he would know how tall he is. I doubt he would say he’s 6’5 if he’s really 6’6”. I mean sometimes we have to not think wishfully!
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
@Robbe: that particular site simply knocks half inch off every athlete for the olympics. Examples Vince carter Scottie Pippen etc. but it is evidence that Wlad likely isn’t over 6’5” tho since that would likely be his barefoot height. And yes he is looking up to AJ and that looks about the difference it should be maybe 2cm or so. Wlad could just be a solid 6’5 at his lowest
Robbe said on 16/Feb/18
Wlad was looking up when he talked to Joshua after the fight. Usually it means your shorter than the person your talking to.

Click Here

Wlad listed as an amateur 6'4.5" Click Here
Canson said on 15/Feb/18
@Reece: if Wlad says he’s 6’5 that’s likely what he is. Since he loses height throughout the day like everyone else him being 6’6 out of bed and 6’5.25 or flat 6’5 ar night is very realistic l. As an athlete I can’t see him lying down about his height. 6’6.5 on his site is a shoe height for him. And he wears lifts often. Lewis could be 194 but doubt any less than that tho.
Kiwi Lad said on 15/Feb/18
It's true that some men can grow into their twenties. Some also hit their max height at 13-14. E.g mike Tyson, who was fully grown height wise around that age. In regards to Wlad, who knows what his story is lol
Reece said on 15/Feb/18
In my opinion he looked taller than 195cm. Wlad looked the same as AJ from many angles some taller some shorter. I think 197cm still. I think 195cm is still too low. That would mean Vitali is 198cm and Lewis is 193cm. Too low in my eyes.
Canson said on 14/Feb/18
@Robbe: lewis’s Height is debatable. He likely measures 6’4.75 at some point but no guarantee that’s a low for him. Could be 194 at a low possibly. As for Vitaly he could be 199 at a low as he edges Wlad by roughly 4cm sometimes 1.5”. I don’t buy listed heights of anyone unless I have something reliable to gauge against. I think wlad is between 195.5-196 vs 196-197 at a low. Meaning 6’5/6’5 1’8 is likely. 196 is better
Robbe said on 14/Feb/18
Yeah, its possible of course to gain height after 20 years, but looking at Wlad after the Joshua fight, without lifts, he looked around 195cm. So my guess is, he hasnt gained height..
Reece said on 14/Feb/18
But if is also possible he has gained height. Men often grow till 21 and even less often till 25.Vitali was listed as 198cm but it is clear in pro boxing less than 200cm is not very likely for Vitali. It is very likely both grew a little more in height. Vitali always looked a strong 2 inches taller than Lewis who was listed as 6-4 3/4 often and towered over other boxers. Wladimir is defo taller than Lennox Lewis. He has to be 196 and the very least and most likely 197cm. Vitali does look 4cm taller. So probably 201cm or thereabouts.
Canson said on 12/Feb/18
@Robbe: I wasn’t aware of the 195
Robbe said on 11/Feb/18
@Canson, im not so sure about it. Wlad was measured 195cm at the Olympics 1996. He was 20 years, and 3 months old. Its moore than likely he hasnä't gain moore height since then. He was cleary shorter than Joshua after the fight when they stood side by side in the ring. Check the pics i posted on 2/Oct/17.
Canson said on 7/Feb/18
I’d say a full 196. he’s a strong 6’5. Rob has him listed close enough
Kiwi Lad said on 6/Feb/18
Closer to 195cm imo
even said on 25/Jan/18
nothing under 6 foot 5 nothing
Canson said on 10/Jan/18
He is close to AJ in height but still a good cm or so off. AJ is about an inch or so taller than Joe Mangianello. 6’5.5-.75 range while Wlad is 6’5-6’5.25. Rob has both Wlad and AJ listed close enough to their normal barefoot heights it could be a 1.5cm difference at best between them maybe just 1cm

196-196.2 vs 197-197.5
Dwain said on 28/Dec/17
Can really look very close to AJ.sometimes the same or taller or shorter. 197cm is very possible imo
Canson said on 30/Nov/17
@Robbe: and to me at least that’s the absolute most Wilder can be. 6’6.5 could be earlier in the day and may just be 6’6.25. But He actually looks shorter than 6’6.25 Carmelo Anthony due to camera angle. Melo is actually is pre draft height having seen him in person. A rarity in the NBA
Robbe said on 21/Nov/17
@184guy, i dont think Breazeale is 201cm. If you didn't notice, he was wearing shoes in staredown with A.J, while A.J. was in socks. Yet he wasn't much taller.

Click Here

Here both men in shoes. Joshua probably in sneakers, and Breazeale in dress shoes.

That's not 3-4cm difference. Breazeale is no more than 199cm. Same height as Helenius/Wilder.
Canson said on 19/Nov/17
@Junior: you said it well as always! I’d say it’s about a 4cm difference

Wlad 196 (6’5-6’5.25)
Vitali 200. (6’6.5-6’7)
Junior said on 13/Nov/17
Vitali look like a weak 6'7 next to him.
Canson said on 6/Nov/17
@184guy: yea does seem like AJ inflates height. He called Wlad 6’7”. I still think you have prob the most precise estimate as to how they both look. At least appear. Wlad is close to what Rob has him maybe a flat 196 and AJ 197.5 at his lowest
184guy said on 4/Nov/17
Joshua said that Breazele was 6'10 when in the reality he looked every bit of his 6'7 billed height

Check Tony Bellew page, there is a video Parker vs Bellew, where Bellew (189cm) edges Parker out.
Reece said on 20/Oct/17
Parker I think is 6-3 flat and Takam about his 187cm listing. Parker could be 6-4 out of bed and with shoes on. That could be where it comes from
Faza said on 19/Oct/17
Takam is 6ft1.5 haye and joshua both called him 5ft11 lol parker is not much taller there at all from what i remember parker looked a bit taller when they fought not sure on parkers height could be 6ft2 range?
Robbe said on 19/Oct/17
Lol if Takam is 5'11-6ft, then Parker is no moore than 6'1 Click Here

Joshua seems to be lost with his claims. He's not the only one though..

@Reece: I'm assuming you haven't seen Lithgow or Selleck next to Conan both are taller as is Hasselhoff and Neeson. Conan no way was 6'4" peak. Likely out of bed just like Wlad is 6'6" out of bed
Canson said on 14/Sep/17
@Robbe: I've seen him on an incline before to greet guests but not sure if that was the case with Wlad. Also have seen Letterman on it before. I don't believe Letterman is as tall as Dob has him listed either. But what you said is correct a strong 6'5" guy and a 6'3" guy or strong 6'3" claiming 6'4"
Robbe said on 13/Sep/17
@Canson, there is no podium behind Conan's desk. Wlad's posture is very bad there, that's why they appear pretty much the same height. But i agree, Conan is no moore than 6'3, and Wlad is 6'5.
Reece said on 13/Sep/17
Conan was defo bigger than 191cm at his peak. More like 6-4 in his peak.
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@dd: the problem with that pic is Conan likely is on a podium he appears a bit taller than Wlad. Conan asked him if he was 6'6/6'7 before likely a shoe height for Wlad (slightly rounded or if its in lofts possibly). My guesses

Conan 190.5-191 today (191 peak likely)
Wlad 196cm (Robs listing is fair doubt he's under a flat 6'5" at night or over what he has him listed at night)
Aswin MK said on 12/Sep/17
I would go with 6 foot 5.5 minimum or 6 foot 6. He was clearly taller than 6 foot 5 boxers such as Tony Thompson and looks equally tall when compared to Joshua :)

Editor Rob: yet he said he was 6ft 5.

Yes Rob, you're right, even many of us are constantly confused why he refuses to reveal his true height. He has fought many legitimate 6 foot 5 inch boxers and has at least looked 1 inch taller.

He looked a minimum of 4 inches taller than 6 foot 1.5ish David Haye, two-three inches taller than Kubrat Pulev, and as big as or equal to 6 foot 6 boxers such as Joshua.

Maybe he is around 6 foot 5.5 and just rounded off the other way shaving the 0.5 inch. I wouldn't say he is any less than 6 foot 5.5, there is way too much evidence for a 6 foot 5.5 because there have been a minimum of 10-12 weigh-ins where he has looked taller than every 6 foot 4+ boxer he has faced, In fact, the only boxers who have ever edged him out during his career have been Mauriz Wach, Tyson Fury and Joshua - the point to note is that all of these boxers were billed 6 foot 6 or taller. My guess is he is a srong 6 foot 5.5 guy. Unless he is weighing lifts in his shoes all the time, I cannot understand how he consistently looks taller than 6 foot 5 boxers.

Canson said on 31/Aug/17
@Robbe: that's a good question. I don't know if he said he's 6'4.5 or if he thought wlad was. But I have no reason to doubt wlads claim
Robbe said on 30/Aug/17
@Canson, when Wlad is wearing his famous 2.5-3in lifts as he did with Fury, he certainly doesn't have to look up at anybody :D
In boxing shoes it's different, he have to look up at several boxers, Helenius, Wilder, Vitali, Fury, Ustinov, Wach, Breazeale, Granat, Dimitrenko + many others.

Btw, that Sky Sports reporter, Jim White, is nowhere near 6'4.5, wonder why he claims such? Somekind of inside joke maybe? Looking at the pictures, he looks around 5'10 (178cm).
Canson said on 27/Aug/17
I see what you said now. My bad. you said at least 196 and could be -98. He admitted 6'6" In the morning 6'5" in the evening. What stood out for me as well was when he mentioned his brother that he's the only one he has to look up at
Reece said on 27/Aug/17
@Cason. I didn't say that. I said he is 6-5 at the least and 6-6 at best. I believe he is rounding down. He would easily be about 200cm out of bed and measure about 197.5-198 later In the day. That's not what I meant
Canson said on 26/Aug/17
Reece said on 25/Aug/17
I don't know how you conclude Wlad was standing at the best. Wlad is 196cm minimum. But 198cm max. I believe in the latter still. And I don't believe he wears lifts all the time and certainly not in the RING.

Well said! HE is 198 out of bed and 196 at night. with the torso, he could easily lose more height (a full inch). He admitted that he is 6'5 so that is what he is
Reece said on 25/Aug/17

Reece said on 25/Aug/17
@Robbe. We all have our own opinions. But that picture is Wlad bending his knee. The Robert one. Robert looks more than 1.5 inches taller than Wlad. Wlad is not standing straight. That's not good proof. Wlad is not standing tall with Wilder and it's leaning down. Price is minimum 6cm taller than Harrison at worse. It can look slightly above. I often see 3 inches on the dot. Max is implying he can't be taller. Wrong word. Just because we think somebody is 202 or 203cm doesn't mean they can't be a shade above.
Robbe said on 25/Aug/17
And finally, this picture was after all pretty accure. Even with standing at his best, Wlad couldn't be just 0.5in shorter than 6'6.5 Helenius/Wilder. End of.

Click Here
Robbe said on 25/Aug/17
@Reece, nah, Price is no moore than 6cm taller than Harrison. If you look at the pictures, Harrison's eyelevel is above Price's mouth. 205cm is most likely Price's morning height, and he drops to 203cm in the evening.

@Cobra, good link there. Wlad says he is 6'6 in the morning, and 6'5 in the evening. Case closed.
Reece said on 25/Aug/17
@Robbe. Not max. Because he is slightly taller than Fury who is taller than Ustinov. Not max,. Minimum. Those Pictures with Thompson often don't have them standing at there best. Price stands at his best with Audley Harrison who is a legit 197cm and he looks a solid 3 inches taller. Tyson Fury is 202cm minimum. The red flag he could be taller is he always looks close to 6-9 with the bigger guys. But not the small guys.
Cobra said on 24/Aug/17

CNROM89 said on 24/Aug/17
Then Tony Thompson 6'4,5-6'4,75 at best. He looks near 1 inches taller than Kubrat Pulev (6'3,5 i think.) but no as tall as Klitschko for sure.
Robbe said on 24/Aug/17
Price is max 203cm. He is no moore than 6-7cm taller than Thompson, as we can see from the pics i just posted. Tyson Fury is slightly shorter than Price, around 202cm. About Wlad, you never know if he's wearing lifts, or not, so its hard to judge his real height. He says he is 6'5, so reckon he is?
Reece said on 24/Aug/17
Price is 203cm at the worse. But it is likely imo Price is a little over 6-8. Wlad was still a inch taller in the RING. I still believe he is 198cm
Robbe said on 24/Aug/17
193cm is absolutely too low for Thompson. If you look pictures Thompson vs. Price, the difference is no moore than 6-7cm. We all know if your eyelevel reaches someones mouth, the difference is ~ 7cm. Do the math.

Click Here

Click Here

If Thompson is 193cm, then Price is no moore than 200cm, which is ridiculous, of course. So its pretty clear Thompson is 196cm, and Price is 203cm.
Canson said on 23/Aug/17
@CNROM89: agreed! And a guy that size would measure over 6'4" close to 6'5" in the AM worst case 6'4.5 so they round up. And for Wlad he admitted he's 6'6" out of bed 6'5" at night so he would be an inch taller than a strong 6'4 guy like Thompson
Reece said on 23/Aug/17
I doubt it. Thompson is a picture perfect 6-5. Slightly taller than a older Lennox Lewis and clearly taller than Pulev who could be 6-3 1/2-6-4. I struggle to believe less than 195-196cm.
CNROM89 said on 23/Aug/17
@Aswin MK

Tony Thompson is more of 6'4 guy. 6'4-6'4,25 is better for him.

I don't think Wladimir Klitschko is over 6'5,25.
Aswin MK said on 21/Aug/17
Rob - are you kidding us? The photo that you have posted on this page clearly shows Wladmir towering over a minimum 5 foot 8, British Boxer Amir Khan :) Considering his head is a minimum 10 inches, I will leave it up to you to do the math.

I would go with 6 foot 5.5 minimum or 6 foot 6. He was clearly taller than 6 foot 5 boxers such as Tony Thompson and looks equally tall when compared to Joshua :)
Editor Rob: yet he said he was 6ft 5.
Reece said on 17/Aug/17
@ Logan. Haye isn't 6-3. He might be 6-2 but that's tops maybe even 6-1.5. Wlad was much taller than Haye yes by at least 4 inches maybe more even without lifts. 6-7 is too much. 6-6 is very believable.
Logan said on 16/Aug/17
He looked taller than Joshua which is 6,6 so if Haye is 6,3 he might be 6,7 because he was a lot taller than Haye so I'm going to say 6,6-6,7
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 11/Aug/17

Well said. I think it's the same reason why a lot of people think Conor Mcgregor's a legit 5'9", when in reality he's 5'8"-5'8.25" range similar to Rob, not to mention Rob used to list Conor at a flat 5'8".
Canson said on 29/Jul/17
@Reece: or maybe not. A lot of people here guess based on what someone else is listed so if another guy is listed 6'5" and Wlad edges him that by deduction makes him 6'6". Nobody wants to find out if the other one "really isn't" 6'5". For some reason people inflate heights of others because it's not seen as "hating on them" whereas making them shorter is. Personally I think inflating someone's height after they've already claimed it is worse imho
Reece said on 23/Jul/17
@even. Not really. People guess different. Even if he is 6-5 he can pull of looking 6-6 easily. Even without lifts.
even said on 23/Jul/17
a legitimate 6'5" ( 196 cm ) man , anyone who says no is just not familiar with numbers .
Reece said on 22/Jul/17
Actually Wlad is taller than AJ in many pictures even in flats and AJ is taller at times. 200cm is too much I would say. Fury said he is 6-5 198 in their first pressed but 198cm Is 6-6. Fury could even be confused by the cm system. He had called himself 6-9 205cm but 205cm is 6-8.75.
mike said on 22/Jul/17
i think dave allen was joking he looked the same height as Anthony Joshua.
Reece said on 22/Jul/17
@loka. Are u saying Wlad is 200cm?
Canson said on 22/Jul/17
Some food for thought If you have people saying he's as low as 6'4" Like Allen it means he isn't 200cm. Tyson fury also called him 6'5". He's no more than what he claims he is a strong 6'5 (196cm) guy. Joshua is taller than wlad is you can see it albeit barely I. The ring. Rob gave Joshua initially a full 6'6" but also conceded he's close to it. That said I highly doubt that AJ is less than maybe worst case 6'5.5 which is still about a cm difference.

He is taller than Anthony Joshua in boxing shoes.
I think he is 2 m.
Canson said on 11/Jul/17
@Reece: i doubt Lewis is 6'5" around midday if he's only a little over 6'5 out of bed. Height loss is more progressive in earlier hours than later. I don't disagree that Lewis may really be a hair over 6'5" when he wakes but that puts him at about the same as me maybe marginally taller 1/8 the same maybe even marginally shorter some days. I wake up at 6'5.08 and am a flat 195cm an hour out of bed if I'm on my feet usually then 6'4 5/8 after about 2 or so. I'm typically below 6'4.5 (194.2cm) after only 5 hours of just normal activities. That's just losing 3/4" most days. Lewis looks exact with Barkley who was 6'4 5/8 measured at the olympics in 92 so I would guess maybe he's 6'4.5 evening as is Lewis because we don't know when he was measured. Lewis could even drop to 194flat as some people on his page even say 193. Nobody here is perfect! But comparing to other people works in some cases I admit and in others it does not because that person will look taller or shorter next to certain people. Some posters look objectively some look in a way in correlation with someone else in. I mean if we took every celeb Rob has listed here I am sure some are measured first thing and are rounded up by a doctor or nurse or themselves some claim their actual measurement and are within 1/4" and some likely even are "strong territory" where they may measure later in the day and don't round down say if they're 1/4" over or so (and meaning the half who actually claim a "somewhat" legit measurement as in without shoes and only rounded up from above 1/2"). That said Wlad was specific about his measurements he said he's 6'6" Morning and 6'5 at night. He has a long torso looking at him so he may in fact lose an inch maybe not. Maybe he is over 6'6" by a hair upon waking maybe right at it and maybe he's a flat 6'5 or 6'5 1/8 (most likely) or 6'5.25. But with that logic if I wore the same shoe as Wlad with no lifts in mine (keep that in mind) and I claimed 6'5" and people assumed I was then people will assume Wlad is 6'6" because he's "close to" an inch taller. I mean the pics that are used sent the greatest here. Wlad could be 3/4" taller than Lennox and he considered an inch or 7/8" or between. He could also be an inch if Lewis comes down as low as some say. My personal opinion on Lewis is he's around 6'4.5 at his lowest give or take 1/8". Wlad there's no reason to discredit his claim when the other boxers are saying he's 6'5" and some even 6'4. I think the best estimate yet for him is what 184guy said when he compared him to AJ. AJ is taller than Wlad more than likely. When you have two people that close in height one can easily look taller especially on tv even if he's marginally shorter. Rob met AJ and said he's around 6'6". Is likely give the same estimate 184guy said around 197.5 worst case meaning he may dip to 197 and be a weak 6'6" which easily gives him close to what Rob said as Rob also said he had more footwear on. His definition of "weak" is 2/3-3/4 (I am a bit looser with it and say 1/2-3/4 though as someone who doesn't dip below 6'5.5 at night would be a weak 6'6 in my book). More than likely Wlad dips to a strong 6'5" at absolute best and at worst maybe he falls exactly to 6'5" "some days". 196-196.2 vs 197-197.5 look about realistic for both esp when Rob himself also says (tho he didn't meet Wlad) that AJ is likely the taller of the two
Reece said on 11/Jul/17
Thompson looks a inch or more taller than 6-3.5/6-4 Pulev. And slightly taller than Lewis. He would likely be 6-5 around mid day and a bit over out of bed. We won't know for sure. He could easily be rounding down u don't know
Canson said on 10/Jul/17
@Reece: define legit for me. Those guys you are referring to have no official measurements listed. We don't know if they are in shoes or barefoot. It could also be something simple as Thompson measures 6'4 1/2 or 3/4 in the morning where Wlad measures his 6'5.25 in the afternoon or evening. Both may have possibly measured it just at different times. If Wlad says he is 6'5 he is 6'5. Period.
Reece said on 5/Jul/17
@Canson. He is taller than 6-5 boxers. Like legit 6-5 Thompson. His official boxing listing as 6-6 198cm seems to be more likely.
Reece said on 28/Jun/17
I think Fury is 6-8 1/2 204cm and rounded to 6-9.
even said on 27/Jun/17
196 196 196 and no more . tyson fury is 205 cm maximum
Canson said on 27/Jun/17
Reece said on 26/Jun/17
@Canson. He knows it's barefoot. He is still been listed as 6-6 and 6-6.5 in pro boxing. It's weird he would put 6-6.5 on his website and he was said 198cm so many times. He has been taller than solid 6-5 footers in the ring to. Vitali is 4cm taller than Wladimir and sometimes it can look a bit less. I would go with Vitali 202 and Wladimir 198cm.

HE has also said he's 6'5 many times. The 6'6 or 6'6.5 is in shoes. That's how many athletes list themselves. Vitali is about 4CM or 5 taller nad he's a solid 6'7 guy or 6'6.75 is how I would go.

Wlad at 6'5'-6'5.25 (6'6 out of bed) makes the most sense. Wlad has said before that he is 6'6 out of bed and 6'5 in the evening. Definitely a stronger 6'5 tho like 196-196.2 cm. I still have AJ taller and agree with what 184 guy said. 197.5 (maybe 197-197.5 for AJ/ 196-196.5 for Wlad). Id say maybe 6'5.625-.75 vs 6'5 1/8-1/4 for Wlad. For AJ Rob guessing him 6'6ish would likely mean hes at least 197cm.

I'd still say 184guy had the best estimate so far 197.5 for AJ 196 for Wlad
MerkxX said on 13/Jun/17
he is 198cm,could not see him being shorter than AJ.
CreepX said on 12/Jun/17

Look at this picture, taken at the same time: Click Here

Here Wladimir stands more straight up and lifts his neck more, and the difference swings to his favour (on the picture)

Of course, he seems to stand closer to the camera, and Joshua are leaning a bit. But Joshua still has the more natural bodytype/posture advantage over Wladimir.

I just want to make a point, not claiming that Wlad is taller than Joshua. I feel that the truth is less than 1 cm between the two of them.

Im thinking about 196.6 cm for Klitschko and 197.3 cm for Joshua.
Editor Rob: you also can have 2 guys who have different shrinkage amounts, or extreme lows.

It's a bit like Jenny, she can still be 5ft 8.7 first thing, which really is barely less than me, but she drops down to 5ft 7.75 by afternoon, whilst I am still over 5ft 8...

at times I might only shrink half inch during the day, while she loses near a full inch.
CreepX said on 12/Jun/17

The only problem I see with that picture is posture. Wlad has got a longer torso and neck than Joshua. He needs to stand straight up to compensate the height drop of his walking height. Standing straight up/walking height drop/gain are not the same from person to person.

Me as an example looks shorter than my buddy in daily life,(1-2 cm) but when we do measure up - back to back - I am actually 0.5-1 cm(!) taller than him.

He has longer legs and shorter neck than me, so he doesnt drop/gain as much height depending on the posture as I do.

I can see the same problem regarding Joshua and Klitschko. (other than Wlads shoe/lifts problem as well)

My best guess is 196.5-197 cm for Klitschko and 197-197.5 cm for Joshua.
tom said on 7/Jun/17
Click Here. Metro bills AJ as 6-6 and Wlad is says Wlad is half a inch taller that cant be right can it?
Canson said on 6/Jun/17
Robbe good point!

Reece: that completely diminished your entire argument right there. Wlad doesn't know his own height when he said before he's 6'6" out of bed and 6'5 at night and always claims and looks 6'5"? Lennox Lewis if you see him next to a 6'4 5/8 measured Barkley looks no taller. Who cares what they claim because you don't believe Wlad's claim then why do you believe Lewis's claim? Only because it makes him taller? Btw being listed 6'6.5 on his website is because he is a boxer and he bills himself taller there in shoes. Meaning likely is 3cm shorter than that barefoot at 6'5.25 like Fob has him. No way he's a half inch shorter than his brother it's minimum 4cm like Rob said (he said about 5cm actually).Vitali may fall under 6'7" at his lowest and none of us could tell if he did. so if we have Vitali even 1/8-1/4" under 6'7" it makes Wlad around 6'5 1/4
Reece said on 5/Jun/17
Those Wilder and Helenius Pictures are keyed because Wlad is standing bad with both and even more so with Robert Helenius. even in flats he still looks taller than Bostice,Thompson and a lot of 6-5 or boxers just under.Click Here that is the staredown of Wlad and bostice both in flats. in fact Wlad looks more than a inch taller.
Robbe said on 2/Jun/17
Of all the pictures, this is perhaps the best picture to judge Wlad's real height. This pic has been posted earlier, but anyway, it is taken just after the fight, so i believe both men are still wearing boxing shoes, even it doesn't show up. Camera angle favours Wlad, and still, he doesn't appear taller.

Click Here

Forget all the staredowns, you never know if he wears lifts, or not. When he is in boxing shoes, he is cleary moore than just 1cm shorter than 199cm Helenius/Wilder. So he cant be 198cm.

Rob's listing is bang on, Wlad is 196cm and Joshua is 197cm. End of.
Bazza said on 2/Jun/17
@Canson - that is what i was going to say. Lewis is a shade under 6'5 and Wlad likely a shade over so that is why there is a slight difference that you can see but it isn't much and no more than half inch or so. For me, the listing looks pretty good for Wlad.
Reece said on 2/Jun/17
Lewis was listed as 6-4 3/4 before he jumped to 6-5. i think he is 195cm. not even a inch? Wlad is easily a few cm taller their.Wlad was listed 195cm at the olympics he has defo grew since his olympic days.Wlad is listed as 6-6.5 on his website. for instance on the Adam Corella Show Wlad said Vitali is 6-6 yet Vitali says he is 6-7. Wlad might not even be sure his own height. German TV listed Wlad as 6-6.5 199cm and Vitali 6-7.5 202cm or 6-8 203cm. Wlad was listed 6-6.5 on Box Rec a few years ago. he does not even seem to be sure his height. why would he say 6-5 but put bigger on his website and be listed bigger on tv?
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
@lucas: doubt he's under 6'5" flat highly but doubt he's over what rob has him listed either
Canson said on 1/Jun/17
Lewis is more like 6'4.5 and Wlad isn't an inch taller than him in that pic. 1/2-3/4" take into account that Wlad wears lifts? He's claimed 6'5" more than enough that's what he is albeit maybe a strong 6'5 like rob has him
Reece said on 1/Jun/17
He is taller than every 6-5 boxer or close to 6-5 boxer he has been next to. look at him next to 6-5 Thompson Wlad is always a good inch taller. no way is he 195cm,Lennox Lewis is 195cm,here is a pic of Wlad and Lennox Lewis.Click Here Wlad is right next to Lewis so no body is closer to the camara Wlad is obviously noticeably taller.

196 is bang on. Maybe not a low 6'5 flat but a strong 6'5 like rob has him is how he looks and with a long torso 198 out of bed 195.5 isn't out of the discussion. Just shows that legitimate 6'5 and 6'5.25 guys like him or Howard stern will always appear 6'6" just because you get a weaker 6'5" or even a classic 6'4" claiming 6'5" and making it look like crap
Lucas said on 31/May/17
this pretty much proves that Wlad is not 6'6", more like 6'4.5 to 6'5" Click Here
Lucas said on 31/May/17
@Reece in all the pics you posted Wlad is standing in front of the camera or is favoured by perspective gifting him inches of height, Wlad Klitschko over 195cm is simply unrealistic and out of question.
Reece said on 30/May/17
@Aloofer. Stich hair is fooling people.Wlad is not standing properly. here is another pic of them.Click Here. Wlad standing proper this time. Stich 6-3.5/6-4 Wlad 6-6 imo.

@Lucas.Click Here. look at Vitali and Lennox. thats more like 7cm not Wlad Wach.
Click Here pic of Fury and Kiltschko is like 6-7cm as well
Wlad is down at 6-6 and Wach 6-7.5 that looks about right.

Wlad is not any shorter than They are the same height. Vitali looks a inch and a half taller than both. Both 6-6 or a bit under like 6-5.75.
Arch Stanton said on 25/May/17
I agree with Lym if anything Wlad should be put ay 6'5.5 not Joshua downgraded.
Ly said on 24/May/17
I was thinking rather upgrading Wlad than downgrading AJ but that could work too.
Moreno said on 24/May/17
I think that Rob's listing is correct.
Ly said on 24/May/17
Rob somebody's listing has to change.
There's no way there's 0.75 inch between him and AJ.
Editor Rob: I think giving Joshua 6ft 5.75 is probably more realistic, I mean he did loo 6ft 6 but then did have at least .3 more sneaker.
Reece said on 22/May/17
@moreno, some Kiltschko is taller and sometimes AJ is taller. I think their both 6-6. How tall do u think Wlad and AJ are
Reece said on 21/May/17
Wlad is 198cm. Wlad is taller than every 195/96 boxer their are lots of pictures on the net. Vitali is 202cm he towers over 6-3 and 6-4 billed boxers.

Wlad puts on the impression of a taller person.he was much taller than Conan in that Vid and Conan is tall himself like 6-3.
Leo said on 14/May/17
Drepop.I know. but i dont count that one. he looks taller than AJ more often than not. even in some training pictures back in 2014. I still think he is more 6-6 than 6-5.
Canson said on 14/May/17
@Joe Joe: Conan inflates everyone's height that's why he called him 6'6/6'7
Drepop said on 13/May/17
@Leo In the weight in, wlad immediately put his sneakers on after he got off the scale. So after anthony got off the scale and did the staredown, he was still barefoot and wlad had shoes on.
DM said on 13/May/17
He claimed he is 6'5" at Conan O'Brien show: Click Here
Derek said on 13/May/17
it is easy to tell Wlad is taller than 6-5. He has been in the RING and Face to Face with 6-5 6-6 boxers and looked taller. check him with legit 6-5 Tony Thompson. David Bostice 6-5 billed. 6-6 Billed Ray Austin,Antony Joshua,Derek Jefferson all 6-6. Wlad is 6-6 to 6-6.5 Vitali towers over 6-3 and 6-4 heavyweights so he is 6-7.5 to 6-8.
Johno said on 12/May/17
Since Wlad always seems to edge Joshua, i would say Wlad is not far off 6'6.
Joe joe said on 12/May/17

my guess is that wlad is about the height he is listed but not shorter. he is either this ore slithly taller and joshua is probably little under his listing 1/4 or something. so i guess joshua is about 0,7 cm taller maybe
billy said on 9/May/17
6-6. same as AJ. not any shorter they look identical staredown.

Looks the same as AJ in the Fight. the staredown looked the same. no more than 4cm shorter than Vitali too.
Vitali 202
Wlad 198
