There are so few because reach is very important in boxing.

I believe tyson's was 72 inches which is very small for a HW then again he was also very short for a HW too.

You czn know completely "what you're doing", but all other things being equal, a long reach beats a short reach.

Tyson's short frame, short limbs and small joints in addition to having a pure mesomorph body type that was evident in his early teens made his 16-17 inch arms look absurdly full and swollen at times and gave an illusion of being much bigger. There was so little to fill out.
