I will talk to the guy and see if he can give me an estimate on their height. I know the male is huge though.

Yes, but females will most likely take after mom. Make sure he measures them from the shoulder while standing up, not sitting.

My two SHARE a 36" crate, lol..they both had plenty of room in a 36" of their own, but wanted to be together and more "sardined"...so I let them and they seem happy.

I Ihave 36" and there is plenty of room for Wilie & Phoebe.  Willie is about 24" at the shoulder, Phoebe much less.  This fits them perfectly.  If her momma is a really tall girl, then yes a 42" will be better.

I use the 36" , all my boxers have fit in them. They weighed from 55 to 73 lbs and height from 23" - 24 1/2" at the shoulders ( whithers) .
Like it has already been said it is the height not really the weight to determine crate size . Just about all the boxer people I know use the 36" .
