First it was James “Buster” Douglas, now a hoverboard has knocked out Mike Tyson silly.
The former heavyweight champ took an ugly fall while trying to ride the self-balancing scooter, slamming back-first onto the ground with a loud thud in a video posted on his Instagram page Tuesday.
Since Tyson likely uploaded the clip himself we’re assuming he’ll be OK – although not without some physical and psychological bruising, judging by the hashtags #hoverboard, #knockout #MikeTysonBreaksBack and #imtoooldforthiss— that were posted along with the video.
Mike Tyson won’t be smiling for long.
Iron Mike can take solace in the fact that he’s just one of many people with hoverboard battle scars. The must-have Christmas gift has left a path of destruction in its wake, with countless victims wiping out spectacularly on the scooters.
Plus, there’s also the added bonus that it didn’t explode on him.
