Regarding making controversial remarks the Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill has no match. He recently took a dig at Usain Bolt, the legendary runner who created history across three Olympics. Hill claimed he would beat Bolt in every sprint in a recent podcast hosted by Robert Griffin III. He also made fun of Bolt’s newly developed ‘belly fat.’

I've seen recent photos of Usain Bolt, and he's so out of shape... He got a lil' beer belly. I can beat him.

He was later asked to clarify himself and he added:

I really believe I could get him in a 60, though, if I really put my mind to it and train. But definitely 40, though. 40? I got him all day.

The cat-and-mouse play between the two has been going on since 2022. It was started by Bolt himself. The sprinter earlier mocked the wideout for not making it to the Pro Bowl. Hill was a Kansas City Chiefs player at that time. It was Micah Parsons who beat him in the race of the Pro Bowl and the former Chiefs man failed to make it. Bolt had a sarcastic response to it and said that Tyreek was still not ready for the race in professional football.

Now after one and a half years, Hill had a befitting reply to to the former sprinter. Hill is a different player now. He’s having his best season so far. With more than 1,300 yards, he is on the pace to break Calvin Johnson’s 1,964 yards. The WR, ahead of the season announced that he would be surpassing 2,000 yards this year. It is to be seen, whether he becomes successful in keeping his promise.

Tyreek Hill is confident about beating a prime Usain Bolt in a fantasy matchup

Tyreek Hill is so confident that he announced he could beat Bolt in his prime. If a 40-yard dash were announced between prime Usain Bolt and prime Tyreek Hill, then the latter claims he would have beaten the man from Jamaica.

After his turbulent days with the Kansas City Chiefs, Tyreek Hill is enjoying his time at the Miami Dolphins. This is his second year at the franchise and he has lived up to the expectations. His heroism has earned him the respect of popular WR like Wes Welker. Walker considered him better than Randy Moss in a recent interview.
