Le’Veon Bell hopes to “prove people wrong” in a boxing battle


Le’Veon Bell received a reportedly ground-breaking offer not long after his right hand mercilessly eliminated Adrian Peterson. Bell was given the opportunity to square off against Frank Gore, another former NFL great who had also started a new career in the ring, as his professional boxing debut approached. However, Bell was opposed to a fight with Gore. He delighted in the chance to demonstrate how committed he was to pursuing a career in boxing. He desired a genuine combatant. As part of the undercard for the Jake Paul-Anderson Silva pay-per-view on Saturday at the Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona, he got one in the form of veteran UFC fighter Uriah “Prime Time” Hall. Bell will face off against Hall, a fierce striker with a 17-11 career record in mixed martial arts and 13 knockout victories. Hall was a regular in the top-15 UFC middleweight rankings.
