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).
