Well, that was fun while it lasted.
Usain Bolt’s agent Ricky Simms denied a report that he’s working on a match race between his client and Chris Johnson.
“There is no truth to the story and I have contacted ESPN in an effort
to get them to take the story down because we don’t want this to spread
like wildfire,” Simms said in a phone interview with Universal Sports’ Joe Battaglia.
“Usain doesn’t follow the NFL too closely and is not really familiar
with all of the players. He likes
football soccer and cricket. But more importantly, he has a schedule and a coach to follow and there is no chance that we would set up this type of event.”
Maybe Bolt just doesn’t see the upside.
