Probably, but if/when he did, I guarantee he was already a sideshow and no longer a top heavyweight.

Cus and Kevin would NEVER allow that **** with their thoroughbred. Roids ravage the body.

Tyson came back from injuries at the end of his career like a cat with nine lives. Wouldn't shock me at all if he had help.

It was speculated a couple of times in the press during the 80's, although nobody really put too much of a point on it.
To be fair though, I think pretty much any highly successful sportsman at that time was given a sideways glance by the media.

I would put money he was clean during the 80's.

Y'all must be haters. It's perfectly natural for a 5'10" man to weigh 230 lbs.

A lot of fighters started in the late 80's Tyson went form the 200lb class at heavyweight where he lost to Henry Tillman to a muscled 218lb heavy in the pro's...Hard to say but Tyson showed all the symptoms, outburst, road rage,assaults,and ear-biting....My guess is that he did but why was Evander more contained

Holyfield was always smarter than Tyson.

Probably did later in his career. I'm not so sure Cus D'amato would have been anti-steroids either. He wasn't the typical old-school trainer.
