Mike Tyson has definitely mellowed as he’s got older - which is a good thing for the rest of the planet.
The former heavyweight champion of the world was, during his peak years, nothing short of ferocious - a knockout machine who was just as scary outside of the ring as he was in it.
Since retirement, however, Iron Mike has calmed down a bit and now seems a far more light-hearted and approachable chap. He starred in the hit film ’The Hangover Part II’ and has now filmed himself falling off a hoverboard in spectacular fashion. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Tyson can be seen rotating on his hoverboard and laughing before rolling away, losing his balance and hitting the deck with a heck of a thud.
The video has racked up some crazy numbers in terms of comments and shares and it hasn’t even been online for 24 hours yet. It’s sure to be remembered as one of the best video uploads from any sportsperson or celebrity this year.
