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
I'm mean he grew up to be 6'5"

He was carrying a bit of baby fat but he was still solid.

But was concerns me more is the fact he didn't much after 12.

How many dudes do you know that are smaller at 45 than they were ar 12?

He would have been too young to know what he was taking.

First of all he was fat as a kid and he probably went through puberty a little bit early I doubt a 10 year old Tyson had the money for roids and noone would be dumb enough to give a kid testosterone or hgh

Tyson was an overweight kid when he was 12

By 15 he was like 5'9" 180 lbs of muscle

Tyson was created to destroy people inside a boxing ring, no other explanation.

Depends how fat the 12 year old was.

He was about 180 at 13 so they say, some of this was fat,in fact a fair bit was.

He then went into his teens, started hitting the weights hard and grew to around 220 rock solid.

He retires, leaves off the weights because he doesnt need to anymore and goes vegan.

Also unless hes lost a lot of weight recently,I find it hard to believe hes 170.

In the hangover 2, he still looked like a big powerful guy who was carrying a bit of weight

Where would a dirt poor kid from the streets with barely enough money for food get steroids?

And how would he even know to start looking for them?

Also,simply taking riods doesnt make you big,it just allows you to work at more,more intensely. Unless he had a killer weights program at 10, I highly doubt this series of events!

Tyson was very poor. Maybe he was prescribed something as a child, I heard he was small as was picked on, or maybe an trainer gave it to him for some reason.

You can't blame for Tyson if he did, he was far too young.

No by the time he was 15, he was 205lbs.

He was not fat as a twelve year old, and he was 190lbs. I sure Atlas would have weighed him.

Atlas states when he first saw Tyson at 12, he was 5'9", 190lbs of pure muscle and couldn't believe he was on 12 years old.

At 15 he was 205lbs

His pro debut at 18 he was 214lbs

Today at 45 he looks definitely under 200lbs, maybe as low as 180lbs

Tyson never did weight training in his early days and stated he used calisthenics to get into shape.
