Default Ward has shrunk!

Showtime has just released the tale of the tape for the upcoming Ward-Green fight:

Now look at Ward's stats for the fight against Mikkel Kessler:

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


So... Andre Ward has:
* Shrunk two inches in height!
* Grown a much larger chest and larger biceps.
* Shrunk two inches in reach!
* Grown much thicker ankles (retaining water?).

Either that, or I won't ever trust any "tale of the tape" numbers ever again...

Yeah it happens all the time in boxing where stats are concerned, especially the height. I think they fiddle it slightly to make fights seems more appealing, I dunno.

Yeah, it kinda baffles me, too.
What I would find appealing, is proper, accurate stats so that one could discuss them and ponder what difference height and reach, e.g. would make in a fight .
Lying about stats or being inaccurate with them actually neutralizes the whole point of having stats in there.

I guess it has to do with his fight against Mikkel, he rammed into him so hard with his head time after time his body shrunk 2" from the impact.

HAHAHA!
You're probably right! But to be fair - then he also must've punched Kessler hard enough to shrink his own wingspan by 2".

The length of an inch is different for Chinese girls, specifically, than for other people? Hm. Interesting.

Visst pokker er det Otto!
Hvordan visste du det - er du en fan?

(For you non-Norwegian speakers, who may or may not be annoyed by our foreign-talk: I'm just confirming to Stefanoitch that the fighter on my profile pic is the Norwegian HW Otto von Porat).
