Forget Celebrity Boxing, We Want Tyreek Hill Vs. Usain Bolt

Maybe the next big thing in this cesspool of celebrity bizarreness will involve the feet and not the fists.

Actually, the challenge Tyreek Hill made to track star Usain Bolt is less “celebrity” and more “actual athlete.” But it still involves two athletes who compete in different sports.

It started when Bolt when on The Pat McAfee Show and discussed how Hill talked some big talk about a race … between Bolt and Hill.

“Me and Tyreek Hill got into it,” Bolt told McAfee. “He was talking, ‘blah blah blah.’ But, then I went to the (NFL) combine one year, and if you go on the net right now, I ran 4.22 in my sweats and some street shoes. I was like, ‘Come on, Tyreek Hill. You got no chance.'”

Hill got wind of this converation and quickly fired back.

“Line up then,” Hill said on social media. “Stop hiding.”

Bolt will be 35 years old next month, while Hill is just 27. But it might still be a good idea to put your money on Bolt. Hill is unbelievably fast, but historically, Bolt has been even faster.

Either way, we seem to love watching celebrities and athletes hold boxing matches against … well, YouTubers and such. So why not have them face off in a race first?
