    Silly isnt it, how many fighters lie about how tall they are it is a very common insecurity indeed or tactic depending on who is lying.

    It’s been going on for years. I remember when 6’3” became the new 6’1”. Now 6’5” is the magic number.

    Joe Bugner did not lie about his height but he would be listed at least as tall as 6’6” now just to not make a lier out of everyone else.

    Unfortunately Buddy being even bigger than Max can make people forget that Max himself was no normal sized heavyweight.

    one was big. The other was even bigger.

    The odds favor Walcott by decision, but Max potentially could knock him out at any time in the fight and would be a live threat at all times. Walcott would have to be in great shape and fight a very intelligent disciplined fight, because one wrong move and good night. My money would be on Walcott, but I would be nervous until the final bell rang.
