Default How Tall was Carlos Monzon ?

It depends on who you ask or where you look but how tall do you think he was maybe by seeing him next to somebody whos height you know and can judge i've heard 5'10 all the way up to 6'1 sometimes even 6'2?

Seamus thinks he actually stands 7 foot 2.

Monzon was taller than I was back then by a couple of inches and Im 5 foot 11.

I will also say that while I never got to talk with Monzon personally I did get to see him up close and interact with people while he was in Paris for the first fight with Bouttier. He always seemed like a nice guy to me.

He could seem arrogant at times, but nothing out of the ordinary for a famous person. He was kind of quiet. Its always been hard for me to imagine him as the type of guy who would throw his wife off a balcony in a rage.

Then again Ive seen a lot of people who you would never imagine had a dark side only to find out the truth later.

Obviously, I am not as ancient as you, tho I do envy you having occupied the same space as the great man, but most sources place him just a shade under 6 feet.

Did the scent of hot bitches carry on him?

Yes He looked six foot or six one to me.

Arrogant, or maybe aloof would be a better term. He kind of gave off this demeanor that he thought he was royalty. He was, he was boxing royalty. Ive never been someone who was impressed by celebrity so this kind of rubs me the wrong way for anyone famous.

If you believe the old timers....... he was 6'5 w/o shoes on.

In reality, he was about 6'0.
