Default According to Boxrec Rees AND Broner are BOTH 5'7"



My eyes are telling me a different story altogether!!

Anyone know what their heights really are, Broner seems to have a significant advantage in this area ....

Heights are clearly not Boxrec's forte. Noticed it last week. They have Selby at 5'5" and Lindsay at 5'7" !!

All I know is it's incredible Broner is getting down to this weight and actaully weighed in below Rees. To look at him he looks closer to a middleweight with those shoulders

BN had Rees at 5'3'' and Broner 5'7'' seems more beliveable

broner looked quite tall next to Johnny Nelson on Ringside. I would say Broner is about 5'8 or so.

Broner is big in the shoulders but nowhere else. Slim waste, arms, legs etc. whereas Gavin is pretty thick set everywhere.

Yeah, Rees is about 5'3 and Broner about 5'7 or 5'7 and a half.

Rees' height is what makes him so awkward. He ducks low and his head catches his opponents and can cause cuts. It's kind of dirty but at the end of the day if you can get away with it then do it. The Americans wouldn't think twice about headbutting their opponents, just look at Andre Ward.

Boxrec's statistics are SERIOUSLY inaccurate. You should know this.

rees is 5"4 and Broner is 5"7, that's what ****** says in the sun. I've actually read articules on boxrec reffering to rees as %24 I'me sure, so how they can not get it right on the profile is daft

Cool

I wasn't sure if it was Broner's height that was inaccurate rather than Rees and he was 5'10+ like Ricky Burns?

So Burns would have a sizeable advantage on Broner should they meet.

This is very strange. I am sure I checked these stats on boxrec 2-3 weeks ago and they were different.

Very peculiar.
