    Andy Ruiz is officially measured at 1m88 / 6ft2 but I for my part feel that it measures a little less.

    Whether during the face off or during the fight the gap seemed greater than that between Joshua and Povetkin (which measures him 1m88).

    On this video it seems smaller than Holyfield (1m89 and again I think he's probably 1m87)



    In my opinion Ruiz must measure 1m84-86

    No way Ruiz is 6’2, I’d say 6’ and say 6’1 at the very most.

    Anyone can get lucky, some lucky *******s even win the lottery. Doesn't mean that same lucky guy will win again next time he plays though...

    Ruiz was lucky beating Joshua. If he loses the rematch Joshua won only because of talent, skill, and punching power. No luck involved. Right?

    I'm inclined to believe the official height. I think he has a body shape and stance that maybe makes you think he's less tall than he is.

    6ft1 in shoes.

    Look at him standing next to Mike Tyson (5ft10) and he only has a couple of inches on him. Three at the most.

    Boxing heights are pretty annoying, different sources put different heights all the time. I remember Canelo being listed at 5’7 for one fight then 5’9 for another.

    He kind of hunches a lot, so that can take off a few inches from your height.

    Better question is what his real weight would be if he bothered to train like a professional?
