I think Marlon Starling may have a better ratio.
5ft 8.5 in and 25" arms i cant find his total reach but i remember him when he was active and it was miles more than his opponents.

Hagler was well known for having an enormous reach...
I'm not sure how he measures up to other long'uns..
I know that Starling, Liston & Langford also had good reaches (for their height)

I just want to keep working hard and have Paul improve in every fight,'' ... I remember the Marvin Hagler years of trying to get a big name into the ring ..... in the first round, with the longest going just 1:41 into the round. ...... You know, Paul did that. Paul went through the stages of a mandatory fight. ...
