    Hes listed at 5'5.5" which is total BS. Mayweather when standing next to him looked 4 inches taller. And Floyd is listed at 5'8", but his real height is only 5'7".

    It's common for fighters to add an inch or even two on their listed heights. Marvin Hagler for example was listed at 5'10" and he wasnt even that tall in shoes. Ray Leonard was a legit 5'9" and he looked to have AT LEAST an inch on Hagler.

    Davis actually uses this to his advantage though. Hes got such a powerful low center of gravity. That hook he landed on Ruiz yesterday was so explosive and destructive. When he gets inside he is DEVASTATING to these frail Featherweights.

    I'd like to see this fellow fight Yuri Gamboa.

    Guaranteed knockout, either way.

    I think Tank is legit 5' 5". He's the same height as Pacquiao. You have to keep in mind that Floyd wears women's riding boots with heels.

    Pac is more like a legit 5'4". Tank is shorter than Pac.

    I posted the same the other night, tank is a midget and definitely not 5’5 but it works for him as he strong as anything and can punch. Always looks about 4’ shorter than Floyd so I’d say he’s 5’4 at the very most.

    Only positive is you can take up boxing and beat up other midgets.

    Davis has been beating up guys are 5'8" or 5'9" with ease. Granted very skinny ones, but still.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Fighter heights are exaggerated all the time, in every weight.

    This. I used to see PAC in Eagle Rock, since he used to run charity banquets for the local Veterans and 5’4” seems about right. Mayweather is another guy, who is closer to 5’5” than his ridiculous 5’8” listing.

    Maybe you aren’t 6’3 like you think you are.
