Every fighter Tyson blew away was taller and weighed more than him.

Putting size before skills is a basic , Mickey Mouse outlook on boxing.
Up to Spinks when Tyson was prime:

Tyson outweighted:

Hector Mercedes
Trent Singleton
Ricardo Spain
Larry Sims
Lorenzo Canady
Michael Johnson
Eddie Richardson
Conroy Nelson
Mark Young
David Jaco
Jesse ferguson
Steve Zouski
James Tillis
William Hosea
Lorenzo Boyd
Marvis frazier
Jose Ribalta
Alfonzo Ratliff
Trevor Berbick
Pinklon Thomas
Michael Spinks
21 fighter outweighted, some were cruisers (not blown up, but true sub200 guys)

There were a few fighters who weighted in at the same weight.

And a minority who outweighted Tyson.

It is not a coincidence, size matters.
Skills matters too, but size CAN make up for skills.
