What is Floyd Mayweather Junior's Reach? A Reference Guide

Considering when boxing statistics are released, there is some confusion over changes in how measurements are reported. When it comes to reach statistics this is particularly interesting because sometimes we get "wingspan" and other times we get arm length measurements from the armpit to the end of the fist, which may be what more fans are actually interested in, even though it is used less. This page will stand to inform you of which sources list Floyd Mayweather Junior's reach and how, so that you have a good idea for your reference. This will include any broadcast tales of the tape from any channel that I may find. All reach measurements will be paired alongside that of the opponent's, for your convenience and according to the broadcast's tale of the tape, as opposed to their Boxrec listing. We will update this page regularly to get it as thorough as possible and maintain it. You may click through to Boxrec for each fighter's individual page.
