Tyson never had wide lats, and wide lats is what makes a big chest measurement. I supsect that his chest measures more than 42 now because he uses weights these days and has wider lats. But he never used to train his lat muscles or use weights and had a narrow back, and not only that but his chest was 42" 'relaxed' NOT expanded.

Tyson weighed 215 in his prime, everyone thinks he should have had a bigger chest and arms bigger than 16". Most of his weight came from his 20" neck, 28" legs, and 18" calfs

Tyson's most impressive measurements were his nearly 20 inch neck and 27" thighs. He just doesn't have the huge torso of a Max Baer who looked flat chested but was 44" relaxed and nearly 48" expanded. His rib cage and overall frame size just isn't that big for a heavyweight.

A 42" unexpanded chest is pretty big though.

Tyson isnt very big anyway, his frame has always been small for his weight class.

Tyson just has all the right muscles in the right places that make him appear massive. Looks dont always tell the full story anyway, i know a few people who look bigger than me but weigh a lot less, some people are just naturaly heavier than others.

they might measure just across his chest, im guessing, i recall reading Jeff Fenech's book, and Jeff says Mike wasnt tall but had huge chest, shoulders and core.
