A 5'7" guy calling a 5'5 1/2" a midget made me laugh.


ragner11

Tank is like 5’3” in real life


YMDKSAB

Yup he's honestly tiny


FreeSpeechMatters1

Shakur is a tiny dude too and small ass hands.


Agreeable_Net_4325

Yeah definitely inflated boxing height. Garcia does look like a real 5 10 tho.


warm_baller

Garcia is more like 5’8 1/2 or 5’9, you can tell by him standing next to 5’11 Jake Paul


BeautifulBrownie

Not sure if this is just haters speaking, but I heard that Jake is closer to 5'10" but just wears big shoes to seem 6'?


warm_baller

Celeb heights has him at 5’11 https://www.celebheights.com/s/Jake-Paul-50221.html


BeautifulBrownie

Much better source than the random conjecture I've heard on reddit- my bad


cuntyeagle

It's one of those things in boxing like saying a guy is huge when they weigh like 140lbs. Everything is relative to the weight class you are talking about.


DaankyKong

Lol saw someone call a guy on the Whyte card a “stocky mf” who was 5’9, 168. Made me think, I’m bigger than that and I’m pretty small


[deleted]

for a fit guy thats rather stock, he probabl weighed 175-180 in the ring


DaankyKong

Look at my page…. It’s not like I’m fat, it’s just not a very big size. I get they rehydrate more so maybe that is a bit bigger but 5’9, 170 isn’t very big


[deleted]

if you're around 10 percent bodyfat it is.


TchallaKingofWakanda

Hey, 5'7" is basically 6'1"


stevecollins1988

Any taller than 5"7 and he'd probably be low end of average height, so 5"7 is tall for a short guy. He's like the tallest short guy.


SharksFanAbroad

Tank is not 5’5½”, that’s his listed height. Shakur’s listed at 5’8”.


Gman2k4

His drivers license says 5’6 but they don’t verify it here in Md. so that’s most likely not accurate either


[deleted]

[удалено]


SharksFanAbroad

Oh idk I saw on wiki, and I think I recall him being listed 5’8 in fights but I might be wrong.


MrsPuffSmashedMyFoot

It’s as funny as Trae Young doing the too small taunt to taller guys


logicalsuicidee

FYI in boxing a lot of guys are listed 2-3 inches shorter than their real height, just like how they come in 15-20lbs heavier than their listed weight. All mind games. When I first started fighting my coach said “how tall are you” I said “6’0” and he said “You’re 5’10? Ok 5’10”


cuntyeagle

Maybe he wanted your real height and not your Tinder height.


logicalsuicidee

My tinder height is 6’4 bud


[deleted]

Other way around


ActualFrozenPizza

It's literally the opposite. Ive yet to see a fighter being taller by a couple of inches compared to his listed height lol


newrap

Barrios is listed as 5'10 but is closer to 6'0, Shakur is often listed as 5'7 but is really 5'8, Benavidez is listed at 6'1 but is closer to 6'3, etc. The reason this happens sometimes is because a lot of fighters have their height measured very early in the career when they are teenagers and don't have it updated until much later.


ActualFrozenPizza

And Canelo is listed as 5'9 but is in reality closer to 5'7 ish. Floyd was listed as 5'8 but is no taller than 5'7 on a good day. Fury is also repeatedly listed as 6'9 but many who met him would list him closer to 6'7 There are plenty of examples the other way around.


Responsible-Ad2021

Fury is definitely not 6'9". Theres a video of him meeting Jason Mamoa who is a little over 6'4" and he looked maybe 2" taller than him.


logicalsuicidee

So tell me, in what world would that make sense? It’s hard to get fights as a top prospect in the pros and as a good fighter in the amateurs. Guys don’t want to get beat up and will avoid fighting you especially if you’re on a tear. Coaches don’t want their fighters to get beat up and fighters want to win. You want to make yourself look as unimposing as possible. Would you rather fight a guy who is 6’0 150, or 5’9 150? Easy choice, the guy listed at 5’9 will have less trouble finding fights. Secondly, why would you want your opponent to over-prepare? You’re listed at 6’3 and step in the ring at 6’0 and the guy across from you says “hey he isn’t so big” and gets a confidence boost. Now switch it around: your opponent is expecting a 5’9 fighter and you step in the ring at 6’0 and the guy across from you says “holy shit! That guys fucking huge, way bigger than I expected” and shits his pants. I’m curious, what are you basing your opinion off of?


[deleted]

I'd rather fight the 6 foot 150 pound guy 🤷‍♂️


Downgoesthereem

>just like how they come in 15-20lbs heavier than their listed weight. All mind games How is that remotely analagous


DaankyKong

Stories that never happened


kfirerisingup

I'd say its usually the other way around but I think Lennox was really 6'6 and claimed 6'5 to surprise his opponents who probably expected him to be 6'4.


logicalsuicidee

How would the other way around make sense though


kfirerisingup

Maybe as an intimidation tactic. Like when Tyson Fury claims to be a 7ft tall 20 stone bear moth. It could also just be used as a marketing device to get the public Talking. All I can say is that it seems like a lot of guys for whatever reason inflate their stats but rarely do they do like Lennox and diminish them.


logicalsuicidee

Well my experience has been the opposite. Why intimidate your opponent outside of the ring and pacify him in the ring? I want to pacify him outside the ring and intimidate him in the ring. But I’m a boxer, not a fan


Change-up21

Entirely too much talking on social media about sparring results. It is tiresome. Fans want the fights. Not the talking.


M0sD3f13

Just ignore it. Sad truth is most fans want the talking. If fans really just wanted the fights gervonta Davis would be unknown.


FreshOutBrah

Fans want legally accepted violence and suffering. That’s why Tank makes the big bucks for disconnecting cab drivers’ heads from their bodies. If the majority of money in boxing came from people who truly care about the sport and the nuances, we wouldn’t be where we are.


M0sD3f13

Indeed


stayhappystayblessed

Shakur would try to make the fight happen doubt tank would.


bernardobrito

Talking makes the fight bigger. Bigger fights are good for the sport.


rock_Banana

We have another Dwarf Slayer!


TyrionJoestar

Fuckin Odin over here


Gold-Routine7247

All-fucker!


TheLordOfTheTing

You know people from his weight class like to call him a midget but in the ring he looks heavier than them. Tank is built like an actual tank, that head is huge.


Dazzling-Wafer

Head like a pitbull with thick skin all around


bigfatpup

Got that badger loose skin where he can turn around in it and bite you


Dazzling-Wafer

Definitely a lot like a honey badger. You don’t wanna get comfortable fighting him on the inside cuz he’s sneaky and will do you some serious damage and you won’t see it coming


Awezome321

His taking shit that makes your fucking head grow Not accusing him of roid use just wanted to quote joey diaz


G497

It's crazy because you wouldn't expect a guy who's 50% head to be a good fighter. What does a giant head bring to the table?


jumpinrobin

Not getting knocked the fuck out


G497

Joe Joyce has a normal sized head and we could literally use it to intercept a meteor.


[deleted]

his head is huge. It's just that everything else is also proportionally huge


n_55

Apparently it brings quite a bit to the table, as Canelo also has a giant head,


FourDoorFordWhore

Same for Pacquiao


panterachallenger

Everytime Tank goes to his family gathering: Tank’s cousin introducing tank: and this is my big head ass cousin, you know, BIBOLADE got more head than he got body


kmoneyrecords

Hagler had a big ass melon that someone described as having built in headgear in his skull, seemed to work out well for him

reznoverba

Damn bro, tell us how you really feel! Lol at Kate and Seniesa


That_Sweet_Science

Regardless of the outcome of Tank/Garcia, we need to see Shakur vs Gervonta next year.


IAmtheeOne

Theres no way we’d see shakur vs the loser of ryan vs tank. Would much rather see shakur vs the winner


Agent14557

What’s Shakur’s height?


RRR04_

About 5'7, he doesn't look much shorter than Crawford whenever they're next to each other.


newrap

5'8. Tank is barely 5'5


warm_baller

Dont believe their listed heights. Shakur is 5’7 and tank 5’4


Dwo92

He’s probably right. Shakur is a stylistic nightmare for anyone that’s shorter than him.


TechnicalCrab

Nah, the beauty of boxing is that it's never so simple. A very quick midget could beat Stevenson, especially one with a bit of pop, foot speed needed too.


DengusMcFlengus

Midget with high IQ, speed and crazy power. That's basically Tank Davis. Really it's a nightmare package for probably most fighters. All that being said I think Shakur is the guy to beat him whenever that fight happens


IAmtheeOne

Quick explosive midget is underrated


YoungLaFlare

Shakur outboxes tank easily for a UD


coldcard55

Tank is short but he’s literally… built like a tank


youreadtthatwrong

Exactly. I think of tyson in a similar way, short for a heavyweight, but was built af.


Chronic_The_Kid

Got downvoted for saying these that these dudes need to call each other out. And lo and behold, everyone is eating this up.


Lsalizar96

Reddit is very weird. You’ll get downvoted for something just for someone else to get upvoted for a similar comment a few weeks later


mickirishname

According to history, saying this sort of comment rarely goes down well for the sayer.


Avant-Garde-Douche

My girl is 5’0, in 4 inch heals she was taller or as tall as Tank. We ran into him at tacos el gordo in Vegas.


BeastsMode69

Shakur talks too much. I still question the dudes chin as the only puncher he faced was Valdez, who is just too slow to keep up.


AltKite

Nakathila is a puncher


bigls23

Shakur and Bivol are the least hit fighters in boxing. Why care about his chin? Nakathila is a puncher too.


BeastsMode69

Eventually, you get tagged. We seen Bivol take clean shots and not go down. I can't say the same for Shakur, because the only ones that hit him clean is Conceicao.


FreeSpeechMatters1

Shakurs fights have all sucked horribly outside Herring who was 36 and retired next fight and Oscar off PEDs who won a robbery. The rest literally put you to sleep and he lands his best right hands and nothing happens. I honestly think Haney hits harder


_90s_Nation_

This is unfortunately how short man syndrome can show it's head. Bullies someone smaller, when he himself has been made fun of, in his own life.

Agreed, I wouldn’t use it. I actually claim that all males I meet are 6 feet tall.

You short shit


54681685468

top rank's team trolls this subreddit too, their PR team is going to have to pull at all the stops imagine having to promote this guy, his style is not the most appealing and his personality is worse


AltKite

Yeah, imagine having to promote arguably the most talented fighter on the planet. What a chore


Fit-Pollution5339

Isee Shakur taking thurman’s route 🤣


bigoteeeeeee

🤔🤔🤔


Suckmyduck_9

Didn’t the midget Cuban beat Stevenson in the Olympics?


noelioli

He’s setting himself up to be in a million “trash talk gone wrong” videos a la Bernard Hopkins

What about a white boy?


KerikSumia

Kinda want tank to knock him out just for that comment.


SetExtension1028

That’s like when Rolly when saying that shit about Tank and he was legit 2 inches taller than Tabk lol


Kassssler

Dreams of Bhop.


TwoFaceLord

Absolute classic when two guys fighting at 61 determine who's more of a midget


raymonzine

Shakur is canceled!


CMILLERBOXER

Shakur would fuck him up.
