Height works on a bell curve. The percentage of people over 6'2 or 6'3 in the US or basically anywhere else is very low (<1%). So only a small percentage of persons who have tried boxing will actually be that tall (unlike basketball, where every tall person basically tries it out). The success rate of tall boxers is pretty good. In the last 20 years, you've got champions/beltholders in Tucker, Bowe, K bros, Lennox, Valuev, and Aikenwande. Then you've got contenders in Grant, Fury, Helenius, Dimitrenko, and whoever I left out. So I think the tall are more successful than others in boxing considering how few of them exist in the total population.
