Hagler is looking right at 5-9 1/2 like it always said he was.

6'6 Barkley and 6'5 Lennox.

Barkley is so fat.. Lennox is fat too after he retired.. but he is getting fit again. Lennox is known to a lot of the NBA. Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant said their favorite boxer is not Mike Tyson but LENNOX Lewis...........

In normal shoes maybe Barkley is 6'6"; he looks about the same height as Lewis, who is probably the very accurate sounding 6'4 3/4" that he was listed at early in his career.

Barkley looks a little taller than Lennox, and he is further back from the camera

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?

At 3:14 :

BORKED

Mugabi is at least an inch taller.


Then against Duran, at 5:32 in the video below Hagler is listed as exactly 2 inches taller than Duran.
But throughout the fight they look the same height.

BORKED


I would defintely say Hagler is below 5'8.

From that picture there could be less than an inch between them.
Antuofermo is often listed as 5'7.
Hagler could be 5'7 3/4 on a good day.
Hagler is listed as 5'9 1/2.

Tyson was usually listed at 5'10 or so. I never saw him regularly listed as 5'11 1/2.
