Tyson Fury Height

"Good will always prevail over evil. I see that in me versus Klitschko."

~ Tyson Fury

There is a very good chance that Tyson Fury could be called the greatest heavyweight boxer of our generation by the time he quits boxing. As it is he is nearly up there with Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder hot on his tail.

But the thing that sets Fury apart from Joshua and Wilder, is his one of a kind of personality -- which he isn't shy of using. His behavior is often brash, often funny, reminding people of Muhammad Ali.

About Tyson Fury's Real Height

Tyson Fury is larger than life -- in personality, in boxing -- in everything, even in height.

He is a very large person, and would be exceptionally tall anywhere in the world, be it the Netherlands, where the average male height is around 5'11½", or be it South Sudan, where the Nilotic people like Dinka males have an average height of around 6'1".

Tyson Fury claims to be six feet nine inches tall, which kind of suits him seeing how big he is. But it is only when you compare his height to that of some other tall people, the math just doesn't add up to it.

Tyson is known for his showmanship and his 6'9" claim could well be... well a bit of showmanship.

Consider this, Tyson Fury looked only around an inch taller than Deontay Wilder, who certainly wouldn't touch the 6'7" mark as well -- seeing that he used to be described as a 6'6½" boxer in sports articles and looks around the same height as a 6'6" Carmelo Anthony.

There is also a video of Tyson Fury with Jason Momoa, where when Jason remarked on his height, Tyson once again claimed to be 6'9". Except Tyson didn't look that tall against a 6'4" Jason -- though it may well be because of the heavy boots Jason is so fond of wearing.

Tyson also looked only about an inch taller than WWE powerhouse Braun Strowman who we know for a matter of fact isn't over 6'7" -- though he is listed at 6'8", but you know the WWE listings eh...

After carefully looking at Tyson Fury and comparing his height to that of The Rock (6'2½" now, 6'3" in his prime), Wladimir Klitschko (6'5½"), Eben Britton (6'6"), Braun Strowman (6'6½"), Deontay Wilder (6'6½"), and some other interesting people, we can safely say that Tyson Fury is shorter than 6'9" -- but how much shorter exactly?

Well, this is our guess and you are welcome to your own if you feel up to it.

The height of Tyson Fury is

6'7½" or 202 cm

"What do I see when I look in the mirror? One handsome man. No, I see the same person I have seen for the last 27 years: the person I believed I could be when I was a child, the person I have inspired and dreamed to be all my life, and that's the person I have seen, from being that big to as big as the roof - the same guy."
