how tall is jake paul height triller presents mike tyson vs roy jones jr

Once seen as a bit of a novelty act in boxing, YouTuber turned boxer, Jake Paul, has quite firmly established himself as a competitor to watch lately. With a growing number of wins under his belt, no one can really question whether Jake Paul is a professional boxer anymore. He undoubtedly is, although he hasn't necessarily been tested yet, with his series of bouts against non-professional fighters. With the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren match coming up, we thought we'd check out how tall Jake Paul is and what his potential reach is.

Simply put, according to BoxRec, which keeps an eye on all the key statistics for boxers, Jake Paul, aka The Problem Child, is 6-feet, 1-inch (185cm) tall with a reach of 76 inches. Those are approximate measurements so could vary in real life, but it's important to acknowledge because Paul hasn't fought anyone over 5-foot-9-inches yet. When he went up against Deji Olatunji, the brother of British YouTuber KSI, he had a 6-inch advantage. It was the same with fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, while his bout against ex-NBA player, Nate Robinson still offered him a 4-inch advantage.
