Default Did Tyson use 'roids?

As bad as Tyson was as a person, was he ever accused of
using steroids?

He was never accused, but I am pretty sure he used steroids post-prison. He was seen a lot with a doctor famous for giving steroids (don't remember his name), it's not a random friendship.

Cheque Drops are steroids of sorts in themselves and he's known to of taken them to boost aggression prior to Holyfield II.

Initially, no. At the age of 12 he was nearly as ripped and as big as he was in his prime. His first amateur fight was a 17 year old because nobody believed how old he was. so how the hell did he get so big? Has anyone ever seen a picture of his dad? because he must have some monsterous genetics.

yeah tyson was always stocky and muscular and even after prison he came out at 96 kilos and looked lithe and toned.. but a year later he just had these huge slabs of muscle that guys on roids would kill for..

its very suss.. that plus he put on 10 kilos and got even more ripped
a guy doing that much cardio should be LOSING weight..

Perhaps around the time Tyson fought Holy in the rematch of 1997 he began using some juice.?.? Tyson was still a lean 218, but really ripped.... But it didn't matter... Why? Because Steroids can't help a fighter regain lost skills..... By 1997, at age 31, Mike Tyson was a faded fighter..... I lost interest in Tyson about the time he fought and fouled Orlin Norris in a 1999 stinker on Showtime......

Rumours have circulated since the early 90's....

Mike was advised to use a certain male growth hormone to speed up mass building after his first prison stint.. It took him from 195 pounds and reletively scrawny upon leaving Indiana. to a solid pumped 228 for the weeks prior to Bruno fight.. The adverse effects were, his body gained like hell later to the point of him going to Denmark to fight Nielsen around 240lbs... he looked atrocious, like a meat head and couldn't get his punches off fast enough.....

his dad left pretty early, but form the information i know he was called kirkpatrick and irish...cliff couser also says his father was irish but didnt know his name. and couser is also a bit of a beast. of course this is only based on cousers own belief that he is tysons half brother...but still it is pretty plausible

has anyone seen tysons sisters before




also in prison he supposidly ate only canned tuna, so he wasnt poisoned or somthing like that and skinned down to 190 odd pounds about 20 pounds under his decent weight, so he def built up after he left...some sort of bodybuilder mass wouldnt surprising

I think he did in the 90's. It was the middle of the steroid era and he looked like a mini Ronnie Coleman.

Notice how everyone uses "I think" or "I'm pretty sure" - like they know shit!

Has an interviewer ever asked Mike Tyson himself about steroids? Admittedly, Tyson may not even fully understand all the variety of stuff he took during his career e.g. psychoactive drugs.

Has there been an investigation that links Mike Tyson's camp to cooperating with someone associated with steroids? If so, I'd like to see the article.

Without the above sources, I can reasonably give him the benefit of the doubt. As stated before, he was 200 lbs of muscle at the age of 13! Without a doubt, he was a physical phenomenon without steroids! This is irrespective of whether he did not did not use steroids at any point after 13 yrs of age.

i say this stuff way too much, it's the esb get out clause i suppose.
on the subject, i believe everything i said but wheterh it's true or not is another aspect.

point is that mike went into prison lost 20/30 pounds off an already lean body, which is most probable becuase he used to eat only canned food while in prison repoted in many of documentary's on his life.

then in crazy turn of events he massed over 40 pounds in what was it 3 months
