This sort of thing happens all the time. HBO always listed Jermain Taylor at 6' 1". Showtime listed him at 5' 11". Paul Williams is always listed at 6' 1", but when we saw him nose-to-nose with Pavlik, Paul is clearly taller than Kelly.

You think your height and arm length changes between fights?
I hope you're joking.

Actually guys it depends on the person that performs the exam, the way they measure differs from doctor to doctor....

I was 5'4 wit one doctor, the the next doctor put 5'6.... I think they are experiencing the same thing.

He's probably doing it to puff himself up a little.
Green has got relatively narrow shoulders (and a weird body shape in general), and by twisting his arms, I guess he's trying to make his back form more of a V shape.
Yeah... but it does just look weird.

Well, sure, but those measures aren't really interesting or funny, now are they? If those were the only measures that didn't match, I wouldn't bother making this post at all.
Let's focus on the height and arm length now, shall we?

This is why those tale of the tape measurements can't be taken too literally.
