I love Mike Tyson. Let me just start out by saying that. I even have a cat named after him, because my cat is a fighter.
I own Tyson gloves, shorts and a signed punch out pic that I have framed in my man cave.
To me, Mike has always been a misunderstood nice guy. Does he have the proverbial “Dog” in him? You’re damn right. But that doesn’t make him a bad dude.
Over the past few years everyone has gotten to see a different side of Tyson. Whether its his appearances in the Hangover series or just him doing random podcast interviews, you can tell Mike Tyson is finally feeling better about being Mike Tyson.
While filming his podcast “Hotboxin with Tyson” Mike took a spill. Tony Hawk was the guest and Tyson tried to show off his skateboarding skills. Errrrr, lack of skateboarding skills.
In the video you see Mike hop on a skateboard. He lands it! But when he goes to slide his foot off the board it gets caught. This caused the former Heavyweight Champion of the World to go down. He almost took down the whole damn set. But, Mike Tyson quickly said “I’m ok baby, nothing happened.” You got to love the kid sprit he still has.
Mike Tyson Falling
This isn’t the first time the Champ has taken a spill and its gone viral. If you remember he tried to get on a hoverboard and that did not go as planned.
That incident has become a gif shared by millions over the years.
Needless to say Mike needs to be a little more careful when he decides to take those feet off the ground. He is a national treasure and I would hate to have something bad happen to him.
Mike please keep being Mike. We are all enjoying the show!
