However some pics are pretty telling, espesh when Wlad is consistantly the same size compared to Davey Boy

Wlad has consistently looked over 6'5

And Haye has never looked 6'3
Already edited it, when i found it it was resized i did not realise how huge it was.
Found a more apropriate one the moment i realised it.

My bad!

Boswell is listed as 6' 3"...

And who's that ugly man behind Pov?

Now here comes the science part.
Then you have to factor in that Wlad is likely to have a slight added bit of extra height from wearing suit shoes that tend to have a heel. That would be counter balanced by Haye likely wearing trainers with air in them though. Plus Wlad's extra 1 inch in height from his hair.

There is no more than a 2 or 3 inches maximum difference in size.
2 inches in height is something that is only barely noticable bro, Vitali is possibly 2 inches taller than Wlad, possibly 1, it's that hard to tell, with Haye and Wlad there is a clear 4 or so inch difference

There is a rule of thumb that from your forehead to the top of your head there will usually be 4.5 inches difference, perhaps more if you have a huge head like Wlad, measure it youself now, stick a ruler on your brow, and see how far it is to the top of your head

Take a look at this pic of Ray Stevenson (6'4) and Kevin McKidd (6)

That is a 4 inch difference and it's about the same as what's between Wlad/Haye

I posted it before the Wlad fight but I met Haye bout 4 years ago. I'm 6'4 and he was well short of me.

Yup I've met him / trained in his gym and he's about 6'1 (personal accounts count for little though so I never bring it up if it looks like making it up would suit me!)

Besides, Wlad is taller than Lennox, who I would find it difficult to accept an argument for being anything other than 6'5 - so Wlad himself can't be 6'5.

He'd be ridiculously undersized versus a Klit. Even moreso than Adamek. Well, unlike Adamek Povetkin has solid skills at HW but at 6'1" you're simply not going to beat a prime Wlad or any version of Vitali.
you're talking outta your arse mate..

if povetkin is 6'1 he has no chance of winning
if he is 6'2 he chances grow 30%

I've seen him at the weigh-in in Berlin and I would say, he is a legit 6'2. I've also stood next to Wlad and he is definitely taller than 6'5.

Yeah it is

Even with the whole 'lewistko6' thing, they seem to all have a good relationship

Ive seen Vitali quoted as 6'8 in places and Wlad as 6'6

Would surprise me, Vitali had a couple of inches easily on Lewis. Who was a solid 6'5
