the tall guys got the reach advantag, the short guy get to use his legs to punch, and attacks the body better.

short guys hit harder, can work the body easier, and can slip punches easier. if the short guy can't get inside tho he's screwed, the tall guy can just jab him all day.

I would rather have a short quick, slick, elusive boxer over a tall rangy fighter any day.

While Jack Dempsey was a great fighter, I don't think he would've found Lennox Lewis easy to hit.

In any weight class but heavy, I think it's a toss up - pros and cons for tall vs short and lots of examples of both kinds of champions.

At heavyweight, while there are lots of examples of “short” champions, I get the feeling the bar is being raised. I don’t think we’ll see a 5’10” heavyweight champion ever again. There are just too many skilled guys at 6’2” and over, and since there are no weight restrictions, the 5’10” 220 guy is going to be giving up 10 – 40 pounds in every fight. Not impossible, just really unlikely he could overcome that.

Agree being shorter is good in all the weightclasses below hw, where the shorter is the stronger.

there is possible with another 5.10 heavy, we must just wait for another tyson.
