Mike Tyson Height

Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth.

~ Mike Tyson

One of the most famous boxers of all time -- known for his speed and ferocity. Who doesn’t know or is fascinated with Mike Tyson? The man is a legend in and out of the ring. First, he was known for his ferocity, and now for his coolness.

But the million-dollar question here is just how tall Mike Tyson is. Or should we say how short? Because everyone knows that Mike Tyson is short.

But truth be told, Mike Tyson is not short at all. He can be considered short for a heavyweight boxer for sure but if we go by the average population, then Iron Mike would come out half an inch or even one inch taller. Mike is just so heavily built that he looks like some kind of dwarf.

Iron Mike’s height has been listed as either 5 feet 10 inches or 5 feet 11 inches most of his life (barring when Lennox Lewis described him as 5 ft 5 in). Mike himself has mentioned his height as either 5 ft 10 in or 5 ft 10 and a half.

There is also a mugshot of Iron Mike which shows his height as 5 feet 11 inches, but perhaps he wasn’t standing barefoot at the time.

After looking at Mike Tyson carefully and comparing his height to that of many people, we think that Mike Tyson might very well have been 5 feet 10 and a half inches in his prime as he had claimed.

Iron Mike was the real Rocky Balboa, beating bigger guys all his life – as big as Kevin McBride who was 6 ft 6 in tall.

The real height of Mike Tyson is

5’10¼” or 178.5 cm
