Whatever it was most people don't grow like that.
the young and fresh tyson i grew up with looked fresh faced and didn't look older than said IMO, genetic freak maybe, there were 2 lads i grew up with that were differently built NATURALLY, 2 guys out of 100s. so yes most guys don't grow like that.

The growth i'm talking about happened before Cus got a hold of him.

If anything his growth stunted when Cus got a hold of him.

wasnt tyson quite poor though? and not particularly smart? This access to roids or PEDs to me just doesn't add up. I knew dudes in highschool built just like him.

when i was a kid i was in sports school instead of normal school and we had kids who were like 180 pounds of muscle at 13-14.
Maybe him gaining 90 pounds so fast is an exaggeration, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was 5 9 and 170 -190 or something around 14.

Tyson never did any weights but had a muscular bodybuilders physique.
He did do weights, in fact I remember reading somewhere how he was benching 220 when he was 15 or something like that.

Some people are simply genetic freaks.

Jonah Lomu was 220lbs and winning sprint events when he was 15

No, he was 12 and 190lbs, and by all accounts he small little kid that used to get picked on.

Lomu filled out at 6'5 or so and Lomu was 15 not 12.

If Tyson would have growned to 6'4" an filled out at 240lbs at 20 it would have made sense.

I doubt he was 6'5 when he was 16.

Like I said,some people are simly genetic freaks.

As for his build, all the early photos Ive seen of Tyson in his early or pre teen years shows a chubby kid.

Its probably simply a case of him losing the chub and gaining muscle. He didnt start looking jacked and strong til he was 15/16
