Per reports, he stands at 6’4” height with a 165 lbs weight category. It means he is a super middleweight under the current boxing weight categories. However, the  50-year-old rapper may struggle to find a worthy contender, who can fit in with him in a perfect matchup.

He took on an actual fighter in a mere sparring session in 2018. And Snoop Dogg consumed some hard shots. However, if we talk about a worthy contender, rapper Wiz Khalifa may be a potential name.
