Boxers Height And Reach APE Index

Boxers Height And Reach APE Index

Being a boxing fan, I have always been CURIOUS about boxers’ reach according to their Height and its effect on their boxing style.

Some people naturally have the long arm to height ratio, which is a massive advantage in a sport like boxing.

This article aims to give you an overview of Word Class Boxers APE index and help you carry out your study on different boxers fighting style according to their APE Index at a glance.

I have compiled a list of current boxers and hall of fame boxer’s Height and reach in the comparison table.

But before we jump into the table, let’s DISCUSS the calculation of the figures and some necessary observations. 

Boxers APE Index Guide

  • APE Index of 1 means the Boxer’s reach is proportional to their Height.
  • APE Index of less than 1 means the Boxer has a SHORTER reach proportional to their Height.
  • Similarly, if APE Index is more than 1, the Boxer has a LONGER reach proportional to their Height.

I was curious to see how the boxer’s reach AFFECTED their decision to choose their boxing style.

It is widely believed that boxers with a significant reach advantage tend to be out boxers (mainly rely on their longer jab & straights to beat the opponent).

And Boxers with shorter reach tend to be pressure fighters/swarmer, which can be effective in fighting opponents significantly taller with a longer reach. 

Boxer’s Height and Reach were mainly taken from Boxer’s wikipedia page and some from BoxRec

Observation

My observation from this study and watching hours of videos of boxers fighting style has been INSIGHTFUL. 

The boxers with significantly higher API Index (1+) 
Or more extended reach tend to be out-boxer and Boxer-puncher.

In contrast, boxers with exceptionally low API Index (-1) 
Or shorter reach inclines to have a Swarmer and Slugger boxing style.

Boxer-puncher had a significantly longer reach or high API Index i.e

  • Marvelous Marvin Hagler APE Index 1.079 (5.511 in or +14 cm) reach advantage,
  • Sugar Ray Lennard, Thomas Hearns, Lennox Lewis, Archie Moore, Terrence Crawford, among others.  

Still, we also have great boxer-puncher such as Jack Dempsey, Sugar Ray Robinson, Ezzard Charles, Rocky Marciano, Manny Pacquiao, who don’t have a significant reach advantage.

We can see great boxers with a SIGNIFICANT reach advantage, such as Willie Pep, Charley Burley, Larry Homes, Harold Johnson, Floyd Mayweather Jr, George Foreman, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erislandy Lara chose to utilize their longer reach to Out Box, their Opponent.

Not a lot of boxers had an APE index of less than one.

However, boxers with lOW APE Index or shorter reach tend to be pressure fighters such as Jack Dempsey, Mike Tyson, Roberto Durant, Julio Cesar Chavez, Joe Fraizer, Manny Pacquiao, Micky Ward, Gennady Golovkin, Brian Castano utilize their head movement and/or raw power to overwhelm their opponent. 

It is common KNOWLEDGE that the best boxing style is your natural fighting style; however, it is interesting to see how boxer’s reach affected the choice of their boxing style. 

There are also exceptions, for example, Jarmal James, who has a significant low APE Index of 0.947 or -10 cm reach 6 ft 2 in [188cm] height and 70 in [178 cm] Reach but chooses to be an out boxer. 

It is WORTH mentioning that Jarmal, with 6 ft 2 in (188 cm) Height, is tall, considering the average welterweight he fights at Height is around 5 ft 8 1/2 in (174 cm).

Word Class Boxers Average Reach For 5 Feet 9 Inches (175 Cm) 

According to AVERAGING out the data from the tables above, the average Boxer reach for 5 ft 9 in (175 cm) boxer is 71 in (181 cm), APE Index 1.034 ( +6cm/ 2.36 inches)

Sonny Liston Reach

The Big Bear Sonny Liston has an incredible reach for his 6 ft 1 in (185 cm) height with 84 in (213 cm), which is 1.151 APE Index.

That is +11.024 in inches or 28 cm longer than the average Reach for this frame. Sonny’s long arms played a pivotal role in controlling his Jab range and setting up his right.

Tyson Fury Reach

Tyson Fury’s Reach is 85 inches (216 cm) which is quite long for his already giant stature of 6 ft 9 in (206 cm) or APE Index 1.049.

Tyson Fury has proven with Deontay Wilder’s second fight that he can fight going forwards and a terrific out boxer.

With his ENORMOUS size, Tyson Fury’s Reach is an excellent advantage for Fury to his out boxer fighting style and challenging for other heavyweights to beat him in the foreseeable future

Tyson Fury’s long Jab is his main bread and butter as he almost always comes in the ring with a reach advantage over his opponent.

Tyson said in his autobiography Behind The Mask “The importance of the jab in boxing cannot be overestimated. It’s the solid, straight shot that – if you’re good enough – can almost win you some fights on its own.” 

Corner McGregor Reach

Cornor McGregor has a very long reach of 74 inches (188 cm) for his 5 ft 9 in (175 cm) frame. Cornor has an APE Index of 1.074 or 5.118 in (13 cm) LONGER reach for the normal height his size.

Despite his first professional boxing debut, I was impressed & surprised at how Cornor used his long Jab to fight at a distance and use his ATHLETICISM effectively for the first three rounds.

1-25 favorite Floyd Mayweather (who has also has a very long reach himself of 72 in {183 cm} APE Index 1.058) closed the distance (Cornor ran out of gas with NO POP on his punch; Floyd walked right through him) and closed the mismatch show.

Muhammad Ali Reach

Cassius Clay’s Reach is 78 in (198 cm), preety long for his 6 ft 3 in (191 cm) frame. 

With an APE index of 1.037 or +2.756 in (+7 cm) difference between wingspan and height, Ali could EFFECTIVELY CATER to his reach advantage in his fighting style

It does make you WONDER if the great Muhammad Ali would have changed his boxing style if his APE index was below 1.

To become PREDOMINANTLY a boxer-puncher or even a slugger from time to time, crushing right hand and superior head movement instead of an out boxer style. 

Mike Tyson Reach

We have all watched highlights of 5 ft 10 in (178 cm) Iron Mike Tyson knocking out boxers way TALLER than Mike. 

Iron Mike’s Reach is 71 in (180 cm), short by the heavyweight standard.

If we look at one of the shortest world heavyweight champion Tommy Burns with only 5 ft 7 in (170 cm) but had a long reach advantage of 73 in (185 cm), which is APE Index 1.088; +5.906 in (15 cm), which is a couple of inches more than Mike Tyson. 

It is also worth noting in the 10’s whist, Tommy Burns was an active boxer; boxers were not as big as current heavyweight champion

  • Tyson Fury in 6 ft 9 (206 cm)
  • Deontay Wilder 6 ft 7 in (201 cm)
  • Anthony Joshua 6 ft 6 in (198 cm) 

The size of Heavyweights has gotten more prominent with the passing years. 

Lennox Lewis Reach

Lennox Lewis has an INCREDIBLY long reach with 84 in (213 cm) with his tall frame of 6 ft 5 in (196 cm) with an APE Index of 1.87 and +6.693 inches (+17 cm) difference between his wingspan and height. 

Similar to Larry Homes, Lennox Lewis is known for having one of the best jab in boxing.

Lennox Lewis was able to utilize his LONG Jab exceptionally well and set up more destructive blows.
