Count Mike Tyson among those who got a hoverboard for Christmas. And, like anyone who has set foot on a hoverboard can attest, it’s harder than it looks to keep your balance on one.

The former heavyweight champ posted an Instagram video of himself on his new toy and, when the clip begins, he seems to be teasing someone who was cautioning him not to fall. Tyson then does a couple of relatively smooth spins before driving towards the camera – that’s where the trouble begins.

There’s a slight wobble, then Tyson puts his foot down to try to stabilize himself. But instead of stopping the wobble, that move sends Iron Mike to the floor with a few yelps and a thud.

Give the hoverboard the decision by K.O.
