His pro debut at 18 he was 214lbs

Today at 45 he looks definitely under 200lbs, maybe as low as 180lbs
lets be honest tyson was a freak from the start to end. What kind of heavy weight has the speed of a guy in the lower weight classes and hits like a mac truck with it. Durable as hell too

Tyson just developed earlier than most. It happens in varying degrees. Don't know about you all, but there were about 2-3 kids i went to grade school with that were naturally ripped and pretty damn athletic and filled out in their early teens (without touching weights). Possibly by coincidence, they were african american and not very well off. i myself reached almost my full height and was fairly filled out with size 12 feet by about age 12-13 or so. unfortunately i only grew a couple more inches to 6'1 so my basketball career fizzled

He doesn't look massive here, around the 190lb mark.

So you are a 190 lb 12 year old.

That explains a lot.

This is complete ignorance. He spent his childhood in and out of the penal system. The kids there are often huge, I have firsthand knowledge on that. It's definitely not unusual to see kids that are 12-15 weighing 180lbs+ of mostly muscle. Those kids really don't have much to do there besides working out, playing cards, or chess, and fighting each other. Most don't even think about reading books or studying other than when they are forced to for mandatory schooling. But ask anyone that's been locked up as a youth before or better yet if you have any buddies that have been Correctional officers at a youth camp ask them if they've seen young teenagers that had the body of an adult athlete. It's pretty common

Good genetics, as if a 12 year old is gunna jab his arse haha and even if he did steroids/ped's are worthless without proper training and diet.
