Recent pictures of Mike Tyson standing with UFC fighter Mark Hunt (listed as being 5'10"); they both look to be about even in height. Hunt is much bigger built than is Mike though, so Hunt appears shorter, but next to each other, they look about even.

He's still 5'10 today
richie said on 24/Jun/16
Tyson's a strong 5'10", probably stands close to 5'11" with shoes on. A recent interview he stated himself as being 5'10" so no reason to doubt it
6'2 said on 23/Jun/16
probably lost an inch he used to be 5'11 5'10 now
truth said on 20/Jun/16
He looks a bit more than 5'10 here but if you say he looked 5'10 to you then I trust you Rob.
Editor Rob: looking a height in one photo and being that height can of course be different. Sometimes it can be enhanced or reduced.

My dad met him a week ago in south america, my dad is 5'10, he said he was a tad shorter than him.

-----------------------------------------------------

Is there something odd about the angle on this photo? I see 2.5-3inches between you guys on this shot, though I don't doubt he's a '5'10.5' out of bed '5'10" at the end of the day kind of guy-- especially since that's all he claims
Editor Rob: I believe there is a bit more height in the photo than I thought there looked in person, possibly because the photographer is standing directly in front of Mike.
Jacky Huynh said on 9/Jun/16
Thanks for the pic Rob. I've changed my mind. I think 179 is the highest he can be.
Editor Rob: you are free to estimate him whatever height you wish, I'm just saying up close looked more 5ft 10 than 10.5 or 11.
c-mo said on 9/Jun/16
rob what height would he be like 4-5 hours out of bed ?
Editor Rob: I think he can hold about 5ft 10. You could argue a strong 5ft 10 range at lunch.
Jacky Huynh said on 8/Jun/16
He's slouching in the pic.

Standing tall, he could be 180-181 (5ft 11 range).
Editor Rob:

Knowing how we're both standing that moment I certainly didn't think he was standing less than me.

I mean Has Mike got worse posture than me with Jenny here...

He looked a bit taller in the photo than how he actually looked up close...but that's always possible in photos depending on photographer's position and other factors.
James Deckard said on 6/Jun/16
At the 1 minute 31 mark , Tyson's stats are flashed up on the screen and his height is given as 5'11 1/2. Has he shrunk with middle age or wa his height exaggerated? Boxers shoes are pretty flat so I can't imagine that even with his shoes on they would give him much height advantage.

Hail to one of the rare celebs that don't lie about their heights!

Hes shorter than 5'10 measured guys.

5'9 Max

I think HBO measured him 5ft 11.5 with shoes on. (Editor;)) Rob, did you know they measured Mike? I had a quick search and it seemed so...
Editor Rob: they never measured him, he just stood in front of a chart and looked a bit over 5ft 11, but then standing in front of a chart with the camera not at the top of the head will add some fake height to how the person looks.
Phil said on 27/May/16
Iron Mike Tyson is 5 foot 10. Rob, would you fight him? ;)
Editor Rob: I would try to avoid fighting anybody, let alone a guy like Mike who has the power to knock you out with a half-hearted punch!
jasperwazup said on 25/May/16
Tyson's head is closer than rob's head. that gives him a 2'' taller impression. His massive back in his prime causes a 1.5'' drop latter in the day. he can go from a solid 5'10'' to a solid 5'9''. I remember he measured 5'11.5'' before one of his fights. The 5'10.5''-5'10.75 is more likely when measured before that particular fight. Tyson has claimed himself to be 5'10''.
jajamen said on 20/May/16
Rob, was he a nice person to ask a picture?
Editor Rob: he was interacting well with people in that photo queue, I seen a number of shots being taken and he seemed friendly enough.
The photographer was stressed though as I think he had 200 to get through in the 30 minute slot.
Ejel Khan said on 19/May/16
Where's my pic Rob?
Editor Rob: I've not hosted any other photos at the top of the page for a while (with exception of a couple). There is a user height page Here which could contain a link to something like a photobucket/imgur album of any photos.

Sonny Black said on 2/May/16
Tyson looks to be not standing as tall as Rob, he looks like he's 5'10.5 - 5'10.75, which is what he was measured at for one of his earliest pro fights.

---------------------------------------

agree Tyson is rather 179cm especially since Rob is a very strong 5'8 (I actually consider rob to be 5'8.5 because he is 5'9 out of bed and 5'8.25 or so at night)

but are you sure Tyson was measured ? when was it and was he measured with shoes ? thanks

Hey Rob, What can you say about this photo of Tyson with Jean-Claude Van Damme, who is definitely not 175. He is 172-173.
Click Here
Editor Rob: it was one occasion van damme could look comfortably 5ft 10 range
c-mo said on 21/Apr/16
Editor Rob: could be near 5ft 9

thanks rob . my guess would be 177cm out of bed and 175cm at night for Abraham do you agree with me ?
Editor Rob: that's very likely
Jordan87 said on 20/Apr/16
5'9.75 with Rob is the best way to Judge. 5'10 In his Prime.

Prime Tyson vs lesner rob.

I see 3.5'' weight difference

Mike Tyson can look near 5'11 at times,He is also 6ft at times.
Peter175 said on 23/Mar/16
Is there a footwear difference in this photo? He looks a solid 3 inches taller than you if he stood up straight
Editor Rob: no footwear difference.
dessert said on 21/Mar/16
6'1 Barry is slouching, and has a clear 4 inches on 5'9 Tyson.

Tyson isnt being honest. Hes calling his height in shoes.
NBAer said on 9/Mar/16
He might be closer to 177 or 5'9.75 at worst but generally looks just about 178 next to Rob,thumbs up for his honest claims.
184.3cm (Night) said on 26/Feb/16
5'10.5" at his peak, was always billed 5'11.5" ( shoes measurement). Now 5'10. The man is honest.
morga said on 22/Feb/16
Then 180. now 179
Eddie said on 20/Feb/16
Hey rob, I have a quick question. Is it possible for a 5'10 man to give an impression of 6'1? And without lifts or illusion of build?
Editor Rob: I can't think I've seen anybody give off that big an illusion from their actual height.
Joe said on 16/Feb/16
Mike is slouching next to Barry. If he kept his posture straight, it would probably be a three inch difference between him and Barry.

Looks 5"10 or 5"11 with 5"9 Michael Jackson....

Rob, you think Tyson can wake up at 5'11''?
Editor Rob: he could be close to it
Johno said on 22/Jan/16
In that picture with Rob, he looks nothing less then a solid 5'10.

In some of the other pictures with other site users, he can look as low as 5'9.

There is a 1-inch discrepancy there and this maybe due to Tyson having the angle and posture advantage in that photo with Rob.

Another shot of Rob and Tyson would prove useful.
john anand said on 16/Jan/16
Rob there is a photo of mike with jamie who is listed at 5'9 in you site what is your opinion

Click Here
Editor Rob: maybe caught short that moment.
Peter175 said on 8/Jan/16
I'm guessing closer to 5'11 prime. Probably a weak 5'10 today
Mighty_- said on 3/Jan/16
He could easily have been 5'11 mid day in his prime

Beerman28 said on 19/Mar/15
Well, hes not 5'10 for one thing. He doesnt look taller than 5'9 range. Probably 5'9.25 on the dot.

LOL
Emil 183 cm said on 31/Dec/15
Mike has no motive for lower self esteem - at least not height related. The man can knock out an ox lol
CoCo said on 24/Dec/15
Hey Rob what do you think about his 5`10.5 peak height claim? I mean, Mike seems to be a hones guy in terms of height, so do you think it`s possible?
Editor Rob: earlier in the day he would have measured that mark.
FIVE NINE said on 8/Dec/15
Saw him at a mall signing today. Close to 6" in thick sneakers.
Joe said on 8/Dec/15
I always thought it was odd that athletes exaggerate their heights. The boxing achievements of Mike Tyson fighting heavyweights are only better appreciated when his actual height is considered. He was really no more than a short cruiserweight, yet for several years he was probably fighting at a higher level than any heavyweight in history. I say that because most experts rate Muhammad Ali as the best of all time, yet the 5 foot 11 Joe Frazier beat him one out of three and was very competitive the other two. Tyson was very similar to Frazier, yet faster and even stronger, with a much higher knockout percentage.
James B said on 30/Nov/15
Tyson is a not a small man but a legit average so neither tall or short. Up against some of his opponents though like Lennox Lewis etc he looks short yes but take into account Lennox is nearly 8 inches over the average British or American.
6'2 said on 27/Nov/15
5'11 peak lost possibly 5'10 or 5'10.5 today
amaterasu said on 24/Nov/15
In my opinion Tyson was more in 5'10" range rather than just 5'10" flat. His 5'10 1/2 claim makes sense to me, especially in his prime. I think 179cm as a peak height would be fair.
andre said on 16/Oct/15
how can he be a small man if the american general height is 5ft9

i'm myself 5ft6 he would be a giant around me
mike wazowski said on 15/Oct/15
5'11 1/2 was his billed bocing heighy I seen him in new york before and he was a lot fatter loojing and id say hes a legit 5'10 and its said people lose height in their 40s and onwards
Lou said on 14/Oct/15
Did he take any pictures with 6 ft guests?
[Editor Rob: he did, but a lot of this photo sessions Malcolm the photographer (who is 5ft 11.5 and was a good 1.5 inches taller than Tyson) was standing directly in front of Mike, not 'between' Mike/guest, also I know Mike was on tip toes for some shots...]
lol said on 25/Sep/15
He looks like a strong 5'10 in this picture
ArjunaKorale said on 12/Sep/15
Rob, please could you do an entry for Joe Frazier? He was the first man to beat Ali & a big-hearted boxer. Frazier had been listed as 182 & 181 cm (around 5 ft 11.5), but looked more like a flat 5 ft 11 to me...unfortunately, you wouldn't be able to meet him & judge his height as he is dead now.
[Editor Rob: I did see Joe up close at a memorabilia event in 2006, but never got a photo, he wasn't much taller than me then]
Mat 5'10 said on 4/Sep/15
Rob, do you think Tyson right when he gets up in the morning is 180 cm or more like 179.7?
[Editor Rob: he might fall in 5ft 10.75ish range]
RP said on 2/Sep/15
Russell Wilson was measured barefoot @ the NFL @ 5'10 5/8" or 5'10.625"
boxingman23 said on 9/Aug/15
@rob
how tall would u say Mike is by bedtime?
[Editor Rob: I think he's probably still close enough to 5ft 10, I think during the day he will hold around 5ft 10 mark.]
Khan said on 2/Aug/15
I'm boxer but not professional, i'met mike in gy. he is taller than you claimb .im 5:11 but iron mike is little bit taller than me
Emil 182-183 cm said on 21/Jul/15
5'10.5 at peak could be possible, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I don't know if he lost height by late 40's or not.]
FlameBoy said on 16/Jul/15
Click Here

mike and Russell Wilson Wilson is listed at 5 ft 11 but looking at this pic is it possible he is only around the same height as mike ?
Karl said on 14/Jul/15
Interesting. so rob if mike is 180 in the morning, and assuming this photo was taken midday, would he be between 178-179?
[Editor Rob: that was lunch-time, he didn't look over 5ft 10 to me.]
Joe said on 13/Jul/15
Rob, do you measure someone's height by their forehead or the actual top of their head?
[Editor Rob: you would put something on top of their head to measure their height.]
Tunman said on 6/Jul/15
@Nick
Even got up at 5'10 3/8" today morning.
@Rechi g
Would be surprising if he was over 5'11.A solid 5'10 man and even 5'10.25 isn't impossiblefor him.A man would be too modest if he downgrades himself by more than a full inch,that almost never happens...also Holyfield looked more than 2" taller more likely 3"
Tunman said on 5/Jul/15
@Nick
I'm exactly 5'9.55" at night and yeah I'm exactly 5'10.25" in the morning although sometimes I'm only 5'10 1/8" depending on sleep quality.
Hard to believe that Mike is roughly taller than me.Being frail and only 130-35 Lbs I'm almost sure he's able to kill me with a single kick,not even a strong one,although I must admit I'm much weaker than the average Joe unfortunately.
Joe said on 27/Jun/15
Those who said mike tyson is 5.9 are crazy,he stood up besides tall oppenents but he didnt seem as short as you described him, i'm sure he is 5.11
Lewis said on 25/Jun/15
Interesting comments below. So if mike is 180 cm in the morning, he'd drop to at least 179 cm after five hours?
Rechi g said on 16/Jun/15
I'am 5.11 and i met Tyson, he is bit taller than me. He is modest that's why he said he was 5.10
Nick said on 6/Jun/15
So by the afternoon, would that person still withhold 5'10.25?
[Editor Rob: they should be 5ft 9.75 range if they then end up at night 5ft 9.5-6]
Nick said on 1/Jun/15
Hello Rob, I will to ask you a hypothetical question. Let's say we have a persona out the same height range as Mike, late in the day around evening time, that person would measure about 5'9.5-6. What would be that person's morning height (full eight hours of sleep) be?
[Editor Rob: typically you'd expect on average to be a comfortable 5ft 10.25...some might even be nearly 5ft 10.5, but not as many who would measure around 5ft 10.25 mark.]
hijopotamus said on 26/May/15
Mike meant he is short as a heavyweight boxer.
Emil 182 cm said on 22/May/15
@Rob
What do you think is the lowest he could measure? 5'9.75?
[Editor Rob: today he might on a bad day be just under 5ft 10. I think he holds around 5ft 10 though if you measured him.]
sunta said on 19/May/15
He is 5.11 in young age he shrinked to 5.10 nowadays
Dong said on 25/Apr/15
he looks 5'10", however i bet he can look 5'9" also. he only looks an inch or so taller than Rob but he isnt standing up straight
184 cm said on 20/Apr/15
@ Sam: He's not calling himself short because he's 5'10, he's calling himself short because he was knocking guys out that were 6'4, 6'5. If you're 5'10 and surrounded by giants you're going to feel short.

And Tyson looks like a legit 5'10 guy, probably wakes up close to 5'11.
Lucho said on 16/Apr/15
Sorry for my bad english , he looks 177.5 cm at most in his prime. Remember his reach is only 71inches and weighing more than 215 lbs always.
Matthew said on 15/Apr/15
5'10.5" was probably a morning measurement. 5'10" flat mid day.
b-mint1994 said on 9/Apr/15
So that's a legit two inch difference huh? Not as big as I thought it would be.
Art said on 3/Apr/15
I will say 5'10, like the great Rocky Marciano. No way 5'11 ,according to HBO, whe Mike was in his prime.

Ramy said on 20/Mar/15
My height ranges between 5'9" and 5'10" (between 176 cm and 178 cm) and I actually call myself tall. The average height of a man worldwide is 5'8" (173 cm)

Well, hes not 5'10 for one thing. He doesnt look taller than 5'9 range. Probably 5'9.25 on the dot.
Sam said on 18/Mar/15
5'10 is not short. I guess he's just got a lot of expectations to live up to, but to a lot of people he's already proven himself in the ring. Height means nothing in that regard.
Dong said on 17/Mar/15
He's being modest. he is feared by everyone, no one would mess with tyson. he's not a small guy or a dwarf. and 5'10" is not short

No taller than 5'9. 5'10 Randall Cobb clearly has an inch on him. Click Here

Charles said on 1/Mar/15
I was an an ameture boxer from 2000-2003 (before I joined the army. I trained at the Golden Gloves Boxing gym in Las Vegas, NV which was located on Washington street, directly across the street grow where Cashman field is today. The Golden Gloves gym has since been torn down. However I am providing this location info so any read can verify this if they liked. I met Mike Tyson in the Golden Gloves Gym in 2001. I stand 5'10, Mike Tyson and I were the same height. However when he put his boxing shoes on, he was a little taller than me. His shoes had a slight lift in the heal which seemed to give him a punching advantage as he threw punches. His shoes were like starting blocks for a sprinter, and they helped him "explode". Check any picture of Tyson fighting and you will see for yourself.

Flat footed Tyson is 5'10. With his boxing shoes on 5'11 1/2 which was his listed boxing height.
Rixton said on 21/Feb/15
Hes 5'9. Im convinced he measured himself in shoes.
Jow said on 19/Feb/15
Bob,
The reason I was shocked by his "dwarf" description is not because of height (6'0 is my height just so you know), I've seen many 5'10 men who actually tended to be taller when around general populace. But good observation.
Bob said on 16/Feb/15
@ Jow, he uses the term 'dwarf' to describe his height because he's isn't holding the mindset of an average member of the public - he's thinking in respect of himself as a heavyweight boxer, where the champions now are all typically circa 6'5" or even above. He's not thinking about his height the way most people would.

Also, he can often have a self-depreciating manner when talking about himself. It's part of his odd personality which often strays into self-loathing.

I presume you're around that height, hence why you appear irked, but it's really not a comment to dwell on. Let alone take offence to.
Jow said on 16/Feb/15
Should get another photo with him rob, and ask straight forward why does he think 5'10 makes him a dwarf.
[Editor Rob: I don't know if he'd be back to the UK again, last time I remember reading about him not being allowed due to some law change.]
Sebastion said on 11/Feb/15
Had to have had bigger footwear. Looks 5'9 at a push with other measured people.

His 5'10 measurement was obviously with shoes on.
[Editor Rob: he really had no bigger footwear than me but sometimes a photographer's position or camera angle can add some height.]
Sal said on 6/Feb/15
He looks 5'10.5" in this photo. Was he wearing bigger footwear?
[Editor Rob: no, we had quite similar sneaker.]
Mathew said on 5/Feb/15
His 5'10.5" claim was probably from a morning measurement in his boxing days I reckon.
pauly e said on 20/Jan/15
There is a picture of Iron Mike and Randall Cobb on Cobb's instagram. Randall Cobb was measured at 5'10.25 at the combine (it is an early morning height), so Cobb is probably a slighly weak 5'10 in the evening, which is how heights are based on this site.

Cobb looked marginally taller than Tyson but you couldn't see footwear.

If they had similar footwear i would guess Tyson to be 5'9.5.
Rida said on 15/Jan/15
Looks 5'9 max with 6'2 Jerry West. And West looks 6'2 max with 6'2 Eddie Murray and 6'2 Marcus Allen.

He aint 5'10, no way

Why are people here saying that the average height for a heavyheight boxer is like 6'4 to 6'6? It's more like 6'2 to 6'4 to be quite honest.

snoopydupe said on 18/Dec/14
Just arrived here off the back of another thread to have a look at Mike's height.

I must add though that i think if mike claims 5'10 then that is what he must be. As a former heavyweight champion of the world it doesn't really do him any favours to inflate his height. Being smaller just makes it all even more of an achievement.
Mike said on 11/Dec/14
most legitimate honest 5ft 10 out there.
Mike said on 5/Dec/14

Three feet from me in Vegas recently. Strong 5' 10". I always thought he was shorter back in day. Nice guy to meet. Taylor Swift versus Tyson barefoot: man thatsa battle!
Danimal said on 28/Oct/14
Can't understand how some people are saying he's over 5'10" when he himself has stated twice now that he's 5'10". It's a known fact that Mike was never over 5'10" and this is going back to the mid-80's when commentators announced that he stood 5'9"-5'10", so yeah, 5'10" is the MAX.
Vibram said on 13/Oct/14
5ft10.3 here (178.6cm), 5ft10.75 (179cm) > 5ft11 (180cm) peak in the late 1980's? I think his weak 5ft10 claims are slighlty less than he his.
RAM266 said on 4/Oct/14
He is around my height. My average height is 5ft 9.6in (~177cm), How do I know? one easy step. Stand straight in any wall with measuring tape stuck on the wall (making sure 0cm is exactly on the ground). Next, Try to get help from anyone to help measure your height. First, lift your head up with your as high as possible, that is your maximum possible height (say it is 5ft 10.5in or 179cm) then put your head down keeping your back straight, that will record your minimum height (say it is 5ft 9in or 175cm), then add max height + min height then divide ans by 2: (179/2 + 175/2 = 177cm).

5'10"
J.Lee said on 21/Aug/14
Rob, Jenny looks much taller than Glen, but you and Mike look close, even though the difference is same. Eye level or body type/gender type play a role? When a guy is an inch taller than me it doesn't seem much but when a girl is, it feels more than an inch
[Editor Rob: both photos are adding a little fraction of height. The 1.8 difference appears a 1/3rd inch more.

But having a smaller head and higher eyeline (like an 8.5 inch head and 4.25 eyeline in Jenny case) helps. Although Glenn's head is about that aswell in that photo, he has tilted his eyes up slightly so his eyelevel is a bit less than 4 inches in the photo.

Tyson was a legit 5'11" during his first reign in the 80's. Witnessed a documentary released during that time and there was footage of him standing barefoot next to height chart and he was bang on 5'11". Appeared shorter due to his duck and crouch style but was not overly short.

his head is away from the sheet..the correct way is to measure your head against the measurement and back..it supposedly promotes the most natural upright posture....I read it in a article...he looked 5-10 1/2 to 5-11 but he was away from the sheet..it will make you look taller actually..he's probably 5-9 1/2 to 5-10 without shoes...he is bulky so he probably looks shorter...someone 5-9 1/2 and 5-10 1/4 is not noticeable enough to consider someone short...5-10 may be average white american male height but I don't think 5-9 1/2 is enough to be considered noticeable
raketer said on 11/Aug/14
rob, what did you measure at the doctor's office? the correct way to measure is your head and back against the wall, it supposedly gives the most accurate posture....I read it
[Editor Rob: my medical records say I'm 179cm - when the nurse had her back turned I quickly changed the 3 to a 9 on the form.

But really, it was 173cm last time, that was many years ago now...both facing and against the wall I remember at hospital and doctor's surgery.

raketer said on 11/Aug/14
was tyson wearing thicker soles? sneakers can give an extra half an inch sneakers or flats?
[Editor Rob: no, very similar footwear]
rockfellas said on 9/Aug/14
before the berbick fight he was listed at 5'9.25" (176cm) on a famous boxing magazine. That article was written by a well known boxing journalist who said tyson measured 5'9.25" under the stadiometer. i think it is realistic, he is not a legit 5'10" barefoot. most of his opponents claimed 6'3" but they were more like 6'2", others claimed 6'2" but they were more like 6'1"!!!In any case, he always looked clearly shorter than his opponents...but in his prime he was a tank, immense boxing skill...
TJE said on 6/Aug/14
Well, aren't you a little bit more than 5'8 at that time of day? Like 5'8.125? That would be a strong 2 inches, but it does appear to be 2.25 inches. Unless
[Editor Rob: yes I'd be 5ft 8 1/8th. Always remember a photo can be quite accurate but also add/take height.

Remember this is about 1.8 inches difference...yet even though I didn't intend to (and was standing between them both), I still added a fraction to the difference. I was too close though, which is why when I took the one with glenn I put jenny in the door of the bathroom and me/glenn stood over the opposite side of bed.]
TJE said on 6/Aug/14
Best illustration of 2 inch difference on this site.
[Editor Rob: I think visually it's more what I'd say a 2.25 range difference would be, but then sometimes photos can add/remove a fraction because of perspective and the type of lense used.]
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 4/Aug/14
Prime mid day height 5'10.5"-5'10.75" (179-180cm)
Nowaday I'd say he lost a centimeter, but he still looks nothing under 178cm..
IMO he is a "true" 5'10 meaning he looks every bit of it with average posture..
Anything under 177cm for him is just a joke

What do you make of the pic I posted below? Shows his Mug shot and he is 5'10 bang on, except I would think he would have shoes on in that Pic.

Looks 5'9.5" as ask the 5'10" guys you have a photo with look a bit taller.
176,2Tunman said on 10/Jul/14
Since when 5'10 is dwarf?he's average,neither tall nor short.Average for Heavyweights is like 6'4-5 so he was kind of small in his sport and average outside.
One thing is sure,after few minutes of fighting nobody was able to stand taller than 2' with him.
176,2Tunman said on 8/Jul/14
The pic is clearly at Mike's advantage.
Rob,Jenny's head seems a good inch smaller than yours.I'm sure you look up to most people at 5'8.I need a precision on the subject,In fact when I look to persons at 162-3 range they're at my eyelevel,does this mean that my head is unconsciously slightly tilted down?
[Editor Rob: you can tilt your head down a bit when talking to smaller people, in the same way you might tilt it up when talking to a taller person. Thus, differences can sometimes seem less than what they truly are, because inevitably people are guessing based on their eye-levels.]
greg said on 15/Jun/14
I seem to recall those short Jack Dempsey boxing boots he wore appeared to have an internal lift in them and a slightly thicker sole than a normal boot.He was never the same physically after his prison sentence. He went in looking like Ram man and came out looking like a normal guy.

I've met him posted the pics on here as a contributer before rob changed it up. Thought he was under 5'10 slightly. But to me 5'9.5 to 5'10' is really unnoticeable for someone to be adamant about downgrading or up grading

Concerned said on 4/May/14
If only all accurate celebrity heights were this easy to get. Claims 5'10, always looks 5'10, and even has a picture with Rob showing him to be 5'10. Simple.

What was he like in person, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he was fine with people that day. He saw me, and he started sweating a bit, but as soon as I said Hi to him in my thick Scottish brogue, relief swept across his face and he held out his hand and looked me in the eye with kind eyes and said, 'Hello Rob, How's the Glasgow Celtic?'.

Hey Rob,
I was wondering if you would consider adding bodybuilder and fitness model Mike O'Hearn to the site. He has a photo with Mike Tyson that shows him to be around the 6,3 he is consistently listed at. Would you give him a look? Also, have you ever considered adding strongman Hapthor Bjornsson from game of thrones? He seems to be a legit 6,9
Sam said on 4/Mar/14
Rob I see 2.25 inches. Is it possible he measured from the back of his head, and mistook the 1/4 symbol for 5'10.5? Anyway he's not short, matter a fact might come off as kinda tall.
[Editor Rob: well I saw him standing right beside the photographer and he was nearly 2 inches smaller. I'll say it again, the photographer is adding a bit of height to Tyson because of his position, the photographer himself is near 5ft 11.5 yet was nearly 2 inches taller than Tyson himself when I was comparing them! I think on here sometimes even a real 2 inch difference can look more than it should and less than it should at times...I wish I could take my own photos :) Unfortunately positions, camera angles/lenses can sometimes distort things a little.... Here is just some shots to show about 2 inches - I put the camera about 8-9 feet away so it's further than any photoshoots I get, so less distortion. Click Here The block is right on 5cm so near enough 2 inches I had a couple mm more than Jenny this time of day so the actual photos are like a a solid 2 inches taller and jenny an exact 1.8 inches taller than me... It also shows again the benefit of having a smaller head and higher eyelevel (as jenny does) - my eyes are looking at the mouth of the taller person here - normally you'd think that's going to be like a 5ft 8 and 11 person, but not in this case, it is me and essentially an exact 5ft 10 person... ]

"Obviously he's in his 70's now so is likely to have lost some height, but he's not only 6'2" flat today nor is Tyson only 5'9" flat. He's legit 5'10" as can be seen clearly with Rob."

West with 6'1.5 Derrick Rose. Click Here

Sorry but hes 6'2 Max. And the NBA wouldnt over bill a guy by over 2 inches lol. Thats the craziest thing Ive ever heard.

Tyson looks barely 5'9 with him. Even without that Tyson is 5'9.

I'm 5' 10 1/2" and 200 lbs. Mike Tyson is 5' 10", no doubt about it yet in 1988 he was billed 5' 11 1/2", obviously with boots or shoes.

179. only claims himself sometimes lower, cause his opponents was usually a lot of taller,and thinks hes a small guy-what he said.

is he 5'10.25 with shoes on or not cuz alot of people measure with shoes. i think he is 5'9 - 5''11 tupac is betwen 5'7-5'9 and in a photo mike tyson was like at least 3 inches taller he towerrd over tupac
hank said on 20/Dec/13
Just curious, was he wearing sneakers or boots? Besides photographic advantages and tip toeing.
[Editor Rob: they just looked normal inch sneakers, ]
hank said on 19/Dec/13
Rob, if he had camera angle advantage and tip toeing, he could just be 5'10.25. What would you estimate his morning height at?
[Editor Rob: I think 180 morning is ok.]
Tommo said on 18/Dec/13
That's really interesting. With the 182 guy he looks quite a bit shorter, almost looks like he's trying to drag the guy down to his height!
[Editor Rob: the 182 guy was the photographer - he was a good barometer to gauge people against, but he's long gone from the events...]
Tommo said on 17/Dec/13
Oh man, that's a bit embarassing that he feels the need to tip toe, he's not even short. Considering he looks pretty tall next to your 6'4 friend he must not have even been doing it discreetly!
[Editor Rob: remember what I've said for a while, some of the Tyson shots were taken by the photographer and they added more height to him. Although in Tysons shot with the photographer he's actually not bothering Click Here - top guy is photographer who is near 182cm, the other guy in that image is a fellow who is 6ft 4 range...

[Editor Rob: in his prime always possible he could be a quarter over]
hs2013 said on 13/Dec/13
The pic of Tyson with Jerry West that has been used by some to downgrade Mike to 5'9" flat is based on the premise that West is 6'2". In actuality West was measured at 6'2.5" aged 18 when he was recruited to West Virginia University. When he was measured again aged 23 for the NBA he had grown to a fraction over 6'4". Obviously he's in his 70's now so is likely to have lost some height, but he's not only 6'2" flat today nor is Tyson only 5'9" flat. He's legit 5'10" as can be seen clearly with Rob.

He is not 5'9 , I don't care what you saw.


Ok since your "boys" with him and measure him under a stadometer 3 times a day, how tall is he shredder. Have you ever actually met him? Have you shook hands with him and spoke? What would be my motive for saying he's not 5'10 and it being a myth. The photos were on here to prove. Boxers get measured in shoes. I am one and in all my tournaments it's the case. He's 5'10.5 with shoes at most but sub 5'10 barefoot.

Mike tyson real height is 5'9.5" (176cm). He has been listed for years at a fake 5'11"-5'11.5" (180-182cm). Tyrell biggs, who fought against him on 1987, said tyson looked 5'8"-5'9". Holyfield stated him at 5'9". In any case, there was an official paper of the athletic commission before his first title fight against trevor berbick. Tyson was listed at 5'9.5" (176cm)

Rob, what footwear did Tyson wear when you met him?

Also, what made you list him and Eddie almost an inch apart? I saw the video Viper's just uploaded, 3 years ago and struggled to decipher who was taller.
[Editor Rob: it was similar footwear, but I think murphy looks smaller.

go back to a movie like golden child - he has a scene with charles dance at airport i think and looks to me near 6 inches smaller, back when dance was 6ft 3.]

most likely 179cm but could be 178cm

anything else cant be possible


Yet he looks nowhere close to 5'10 with 6'2 West, so Id say your impossible is pretty much what he is, 5'9.
Junior31 said on 8/Sep/13
Guys I don't understand the suspense lol we have three pictures of him with 5'8 guys me being one of them. In all of them he looks at MAX 5'10 and more then likely 5.975 as I thought he was under 5'10. What's the conversation about?? Read the top of his page. Look at the pics and wala

Weird position Rob
Anyone he's probably meaning up so appears close to 5'11. And he thinks 5'10 is short. Well I guess its suggestive ...I think 5'9-6'0 is average 6'1 is semi tall. 6'2 tall 6'4 start if very tall.

like a said many times, height is measured barefeet. Tyson is in the 5'9" range, probably peak 5'9.5". So in the 5'10" range BUT WITH SHOES ON.---
jimmyjon says on 31/May/13
either way, 5'10, 5'10.5 or 5'9.5, f*cking incredible fighter to be able to be a heavy weight champ a couple times over at his average stature. Most of the men he fought had at least 5 inches on him. Legend.---- totally agree with you jimmyjon, he had an immense boxing skill...
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 6/Jun/13
IMO in that pic with Junior, Id say Mike does look 177-178.

I think the 6ft 1 guy(186-187cm in flat shoes), Mike looks a weak 3 inch shorter..Id say around 180cm in shoes meaning 177-178 range is a given.
It also fits in terms with Junior, as I reckon 4-5cm shorter than Mike(dont forget Mike's lean + the fact hes bald)..Junior about 175-176 in shoes(5ft 8 roughly barefoot).
I think 178cm flat is fair, although wouldnt be suprised if he dipped a smidge under 5'10 at night(177.5cm or so).
At worst Id say a flat 177cm but any lower seems impossible IMO.
produce said on 2/Jun/13
in my opinion if we take all 3 pictures tyson is a legit 5 foot 10 as he stated himself.

I've said it before, but Tyson I would peg at 5'9.5 after seeing him with alot of different MMA-fighters/boxers etc that I think I have a pretty good estimate of after more or less studying them for years.

Disagree guys. Don't see a full two inches slouching or not nor did I feel like I was interacting with a guy two inches taller. My buddy who is wearing flats I might add is 6'1 and change and I see more then three inches between them. Tyson to me is a strong 5'9.

looks a solid 5'10 with junior. you can faintly see top of juniors head and tyson has 2 inches on him.
produce said on 18/May/13
johno: If junior would have no hair yous see tyson 2 inches bigger imo.
Junior31 said on 18/May/13
Hey produce I don't believe he's 5'10. I got an impression of slightly over 5'9.
Junior31 said on 18/May/13
Hey johno, my height range is at best 5'8.5 and 5'8 flat although there was an occasion where after training for hours and pulling an all nighter for a laugh I measured and was 5''7.9. But I'm basically 5'8 1/8.

As for my buddy he's every bit of 6'1+ he was in fact wearing converse flats. Also his hair is deceptive. The way it's cut doesn't do the top of his head justice. Tyson on the other hand was wearing dress shoes with a semi gracious heel, probably the same as my reeboks that night.
I will say this johno, look more at tops of heads then eye levels. Eye levels can be very decieving when deciphering height.

This photo was taken at night. Tyson looked pretty exhausted as we were the last stop of a country tour the he performed his show.

With all this being said I didn't at all get a 5'10 impression from him. Being a fighter I have kind of mastered the art of height perspective and distance. If I had to put a number on it I would say he gave the impression of a 5'9 guy. He more the like likely wakes up 5'9.75 And hits the hay quite possibly and eighth under 5'9. I will say this having shook his hand and had him put his hand around me and on my shoulder, this man has the bone density of an ox

Rob when it comes to Tyson's height in comparison to ours what do you think?
produce said on 17/May/13
junior: theres no way he is tall than 5-9?? in my opinon he looks 5-10 next to you and youre friend.
johno said on 17/May/13
Junior if your a flat 5'8 then that makes you about the same height as rob.

Tyson does not even look 5'9 there so depending on footwear being equal, tyson looks 5'8.75. Your 6'1 friend does not look like 6'1 with you, your not that far off his height. So maybe your friend is wearing flats and measured his 6'1 height in the morning?

Junior what is your height rangr? and what were your respective like?

If you are indeed 5'8 in the evening then tyson is no more then 5'9. That height difference between rob and tyson could be an optical illusion and the difference could be 1.25 inches with rob about and the arm over shoulder could elevating tyson as rob used to insinuate to make him appear taller then he is.

With ejel tysom is 5'9
with rob 5'9 .25
with junior 5'8.75 - 5'9

Thus, 5'9 - 5'9.25 could be closer to the truth

Rob thanks so much for posting the pic! What do you think? Considering all 3 of our heights (yours, Ejel, mine) what are your thoughts? Again thank you for letting me contribute!

Junior31 said on 9/May/13
Rob how to u post a pic. Please let me know. Want u to see this!
Junior31 said on 5/May/13
Rob just met him at a meet and greet following his "undisputed truth" show. We shoke hands amd spoke i was in sneakers he was in dress shoes I had a slight shoe advantage. I wake up 5'8 1/8 And go to bed usually 5'7 7/8. There is no way in hell he is taller then 5'9. Photos to follow
produce said on 5/May/13
i read in a boxing forum that someone who kne tyson said he was often in the gym with him and tyson was meassured 5 10.5 bare footed. that what tyson said, so maybe its true: Prime 5 10.5 and now 5. 10!
Johno said on 4/May/13
Rob is a fraction taller then ejel.

With rob, tyson looks about 5'9.5 although i did say 5'10 initially. Likewise, with ejel he looks like a strong 5'9.

Tyson 5'9.5
jack said on 4/May/13

[Editor Rob: I don't quite know your question.

That's the photo of my Dad who was 5ft 10, I posted it to show I knew a 5ft 10 man for many years and Tyson certainly wasn't taller than 5ft 10 to me.]
Mathew said on 3/May/13
Rob, you think the 5'10.5" quote could be his morning height? I think that's likely.
Emil said on 22/Apr/13
His posture is pretty bad so he can look 5'9 range
jimmy said on 13/Apr/13
Are you sure that he looked 5'10" in person? Cause when I met him he looked 2 good inches shorter than me(he had a fraction more footwear) and I am 5'11.25".
[Editor Rob: I think his 5ft 10 measurement is fair.]
