I do know that Panama Al Brown was around 5'11, nearly 6 feet tall and he fought as a bantamweight. When he was 20 years old he fought as a flyweight.

Despite this he was very tough, strong and had good punching power.

Hugo Pineda towered over Kostya Tszyu, I believe he was around 6'1.

Forgot to mention paul williams and hearns both boxed welterweight, some say williams is 6 foot 3, i have met him once after the mitchel fight and am 6 foot 1 and he was bigger than me, he looks at least 6 foot 3, also breddics prescot is 6 foot

Guillermo Jones used to fight at Welterweight, although he didnt do much other than win some regional titles. the guy is 6'4.

Mark Breland was 6 foot something and won one of the belts at Welterweight. quite a good fighter.

Milton McCrory also won a belt at 147, he was 6 foot something.

Rodolfo Aguilar was almost 6 foot, and fought at 135 and below.

seems like theres a lot of guys from Panama that are incredibly tall but light weight for some reason.

Hilario Zapata was a very tall light flyweight. He used to dwarf his opponents.

Willie Pep (the Canadian version) has gotta take this 6ft 1" FW wasn't he..?
Also, Hearns fought at LW as an amateur.. Remember him coming to England to decision Ray Gilbody.. He wern't a banger in those days...

Other notables...

Breland
Blocker
Bumphus

Oh ****!!! What about Johnny Owen.! Over 6 foot & Bantam!!!!!

Not sure what Johnny Owen you're talking about, but if its the one that died tragicly at the hands of Lupe Pintor, he's listed as 5'8". A good height for a bantam, but well below six foot.
