    Wlad is 6’5” - 6’ 5 1/2” range. He is almost identical in height or a tad shorter than AJ. You could see this in the ring, whereas outside of the ring Wlad tends to look taller because he is an obvious lift wearer and loves playing shenanigans with his footwear to mess with his opponents. He looked almost as tall as Fury in some of the pre-fight meetings yet a good 2” or more shorter in the ring.

    Of the notable big guys, AJ is probably the closest to his listed height. Deontay is a good 6’6” but not 6’7”. Fury is MAYBE 6’ 7 1/2”.

    Wlad looked over 6’6” relative to his opponents through a combination of dodgy footwear prior to fights, his excellent physique, and opponents whose official heights were even more inflated than his.

    Pulev is about 6’3 1/2” and that’s about what he looks with AJ and Wlad - about 2 inches shorter. Also fits with him being slightly taller than Joseph Parker who is really 6’3”ish.

    A good gauge for Wlad is Tyson Fury. Fury is 6’7, he admitted this when Wallin asked him ‘How tall are you really, you’re not 6’9 are you?’

    You must have meant he has a sleeve length of 36", long by normal standards.
    If it was 26" at about 6' 6" he would be terribly disporportionate, lol!

    That is true, but you have linked a video of Wladimir Klitschko who is clearly wearing his famous lifts. Tyson Fury is probably around 6'7.5" and there appears to be little difference. Compare him to Vitali Klitschko who is probably a 6'7'' flat and he looks considerably shorter, because he's not wearing his lifts around his brother.

    AJ could make a business out of it. ''Height insecurities? Come get an uppercut - 1 inch guaranteed increase''

    When I watched AJ vs Vlad I also thought AJ looked to be the bigger guy.

    I think Klitschko is about 7 inches no more, if he was bigger no way his wife would have left him with his money.

    Wilder is 6'6 1/2 a bit shorter than Vitali and a bit taller than AJ.
