Marvin Hagler
Thomas Hearns
Ray Leonard
Larry Holmes
Lennox Lewis
Ron Lyle
Earnie Shavers
Mickey Ward
Mark Breland
Alexis Arguello
Mike Tyson
Julio Cesar Chavez
Sergio Martinez
James Buddy McGirt
Deontay Wilder
Gerry Cooney
Michael Moorer
Vito Antuofermo
Ray Mercer
etc, etc, etc, etc....

The only one who didn't look as tall as he's listed is Deontay Wilder, who's listed at 6'7 or 6'8, but even then he was still obviously taller than 6'5.
Wait...you thought Tyson was as tall as his 5'11 1/2 listing even though it's common knowledge he was never that tall?
