That said, one of the retired pugilists, Ishe Smith, took it to his official Twitter handle to express his thoughts on Kansas City’s dreadful loss. He hilariously mocked the former heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, leaving the fans in splits.

KC’s helmets are too heavy and drained their legs before the game,” he wrote.

He compared Kansas City’s loss to that of the Bronze Bomber’s brutal loss against the Brit Tyson Fury.

Wilder competed against the ‘Gypsy King’ in 2020. He maintained an undefeated record prior to this fight but lost his precious ‘O’ in the magnetic heavyweight title fight. Post the fight, the Alabama native gave several reasons for his loss.

First, he stated that his walkout costume was extremely heavy, which subsequently froze his legs inside the ring. Ishe Smith highlighted the same in his aforementioned tweet, asserting Kansas City’s helmets were heavy, which drained their legs.

Secondly, the 35-year-old claimed that the bottled water given to him was spiked. He even accused his rival, Tyson Fury, of wearing an extra cushion inside the gloves to knock him out.

Ever since that loss, Wilder has expressed his desire to take on his foe in a trilogy, but the Brit has moved ahead to compete for the undisputed heavyweight title.

Over the course of his prolonged boxing run, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ has taken various verbal hits at his rivals, and he continues to do so. Although Smith’s tweet hinted at Wilder, he didn’t directly take shots at him.

However, it will be interesting to see if this tweet catches Wilder’s eye. Ardent ‘Bronze Bomber’ fans will look to see their favorite fighter firing back at the retired Ishe Smith.
