Mike Tyson KO’d by hoverboard in 11 seconds

WATCH ABOVE: Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson goes toe-to-toe with hoverboard.


Mike Tyson is arguably the most feared boxer, pound-for-pound, of all-time.

In 1986, at the age of 20, Tyson became the youngest boxer to win the heavyweight championship.

By that time, Tyson had racked up a 22-0 record, 21 of which were won by knockout, including a beating he laid on Marvis Frazier that lasted just  30 seconds.

But it looks like ‘Iron Mike’ has a new foe, and one that is ready to go toe-to-toe with the bruiser.

Tyson tweeted a video on Tuesday, showing himself riding his daughter Milan’s hoverboard.


A laughing Tyson appears to have control of the cyboard, before a voice in the background says, “Daddy, I don’t want you to fall.”

Those words could not have been spoken at a more perfect time, as the former world champion, who was known for his unrelenting confidence during his fighting career, went down for the count when the toy slipped out from under his feet.

Tyson lasted just 11 seconds before literally hitting the mat.

No word on how long the boxer, actor, writer and ex-con stayed down, or whether there will be a second round.
