Out of the two anchors, one said, “Fire and ice, baby…Fire and ice.

He cited Garcia as fire and Campbell as the ice. ‘King Ry’ interrupted him and asserted, “Wait nobody said I mean who made that up? Do you understand fire melts ice?” 

The other announcer then took a shot at ‘King Ry’ and said, “Yep, (if) it’s really cold water it could put out some fire.

The witty response turned off the silver champion. The man who is known for shutting down his opponents both inside and outside the ring had no retort. He left the stage immediately.

The pugilist will look to let his boxing talk in the squared circle tonight.
