Default Are the height of boxers accurate? Wladimir and Larry Holmes pictures






Holmes is 6'3
Wladimir is 6'6 1/2

is this how 3 inches height advantage should look like?

I thought Wlad was 6'5". Holmes' hair makes up a lot of that difference in those pictures. And they do lie a lot, just look at how Paul Williams was supposedly 6'1", which wasn't the least bit true.

He probably was wearing some big boots or thick shoes that added like 2 inches.

Some statistics are intentionally wrong, so they can get fights easier.

Hearns is by all accounts more 6'3 than 6'1 or 6'0 like he was usually reported to be.

It's just the angle of the photos. In this one you can clearly see Holmes is at least 2 inches shorter.

Good call. Ya Hearns was freaking massive. It's scary imagining a 154 Hearns against Miguel Cotto




Or a 147 Hearns against Victor Ortiz.

Good point. Wladimir's chin looks really really weak. not even trolling but it just seem like it's signfically weaker than other HW ATGS.

Wlad always says he's 6'5". He's listed as 6'6" but that's inaccurate.
