Andy Ruiz Jr. Height ~ How Tall is He Really?

"It doesn't matter how you look. As long as you train hard, you focus and you're hungry, and that drive is in you to follow your dreams, everything is possible."

~ Andy Ruiz Jr.

Mexican warrior Andy Ruiz Jr. shocked the world with his K.O. of Anthony Joshua. Although he lost the rematch, he has still established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the ring.

Where his height is concerned Boxrec lists him at an impressive 6'2" - Hmm, but we are sure that he looked more than 4 inches shorter than a 6'6" Anthony Joshua. 

Now boxing stats are not the most reliable stats in the world - perhaps not as bad as the WWE ones but still... After looking at him and comparing him to some other good-sized people we think that Mr. Ruiz is around six feet tall -  around the same height as another Mexican (American) warrior - Cain Velasquez.

Mr. Ruiz shocked the world again with his weight at his rematch with Anthony Joshua by tipping the scale at 284 lb (129 kg) - we are sure that was his peak fighting weight.

The real height of Andy Ruiz Jr. is 

6" or 183 cm
