Tyreek Hill has spoken out following allegations that he punched his infant son in the chest.
“Punching my son in the chest that would probably refer to me teaching my son how to box. We do have boxing gloves at our house and our son he likes Iron-Man. So he loves Iron Man and Aquaman, and he’s like, ‘Daddy, daddy come on’ all the time. So, that’s what it is,” he claimed.
