Usain Bolt is Scared of Chris Johnson: The Race is Off

Usain Bolt's agent has now come out and said that there will be no race between his client and CJ:

"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."

Sounds to me like Bolt is afraid to lose the title of world's fastest man.
