Mike Tyson Doc Shut Me Down for a Week After Hoverboard Fail

EXCLUSIVE

Mike Tyson's epic fall on one of those self-balancing scooters didn't play as hysterically with his doctor as it did on the Internet.

Tyson tells TMZ Sports he had to seek medical help after the disastrous spill flat on his back, and he says the doc ordered him to stay in bed for 7 days.

Naturally, the video went viral and Mike says at first he was upset that his wife put him on blast by posting the clip -- but eventually he was able to laugh it off. 

Don't expect an encore performance though. Tyson says he's "never riding the board again. It's not for me."

Hard lesson learned.
