We obtain a sharp characterization of the Euclidean ball among all convex bodies K whose boundary has a pointwise k-th mean curvature not smaller than a geometric constant at almost all normal points. This geometric constant depends only on the volume and the boundary area of K. We deduce this characterization from a new isoperimetric-type inequality for arbitrary convex bodies, for which the equality is achieved uniquely by balls. This second result is proved in a more general context of generalized mean-convex sets. Finally we positively answer a question left open in FLW19 proving a further sharp characterization of the ball among all convex bodies that are of class $ \mathcal{C}^{1,1} $ outside a singular set, whose Hausdorff dimension is suitably bounded from above.
