Mine was like 75 so thats why i was amazed that GSP had a longer reach than me he's 5 inches shorter and i've always been told i have long limbs.

Also i think Sherk or maybe it was Serra had like a 69 inch reach and they are pretty short i'm amazed they have the same reach as you at 6'0
I'm 5'9 with a 74 inch reach my friend is 6 foot with a 71 inch reach you really just never know.

I like the statistic of Roxanne Modafferi being 5'7. and having near 70 inches of reach.

You know what this means? Mike Tyson only has 1 to 2 inches of reach advantage on Roxanne.

Then we have the goat Artem Lobov with 65 inches of reach.

Its not so much about whether its good or bad to me. It helps put things into perspective. Mike Tyson vs Lennox Lewis was a heavyweight with 72 inches of reach versus a heavyweight with 84 inches of reach.

Isn't it interesting how Mike Tyson never really seemed at a reach disadvantage in boxing. He was so good at getting inside against taller and longer opponents, reach wasn't much of an issue.
