They list Henry Maske at 6'2.5 which is ridiculous anybody who has ever seen him knows he is at least 6'5.

Another example they list Pavlik at 6'2.5 yet have Paul Williams at 6'1 yet anybody who has seen them knows they are the same height.

A better website-related question is: Why is there green next to your name?

Boxrec doesn't measure anyone. Most often these stats are provided by the fighter's publicist or promoter. The only official stat is a fighter's weight. You should always be skeptical of a fighter's listed height and reach if your eyes tell you otherwise.

It's just so blatantly obvious that Paul Williams isn't 1 and half inches shorter than Kelly Pavlik.

Maske is 6'4 and half. They have Dawson at 6'1 when even a fool can see he's AT LEAST 6'3!
