Default Re: Tale of the tape - heavyweights

I concur pretty much with what Bummy and Janitor have said so far in this thread - just thought i'd drop in two of the one's I always found funniest - that being Tyson's and Holy's heights - I have a friend who is bang on 6ft who met Tyson in Vegas 2 or 3 years back and he thought Tyson was about 3 or 4 inches shorter than him - he said he wasn't much taller than me (and I'm 5'8") - the photo he had with him confirmed that he was in the region of 3 to 4 inches shorter than him - 100% definately NOT the half inch shorter that his tale of the tape says

also holyfield for all of his cruiserweight days was listed as 6ft 1in yet after being 'scientifically' trained he had not only put on 20 pounds of pure muscle but he had suddenly grown an extra inch too haha I remember one sarcastic writer commenting that he must've been put in a grow bag lol
