Former NFL All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell has his next fight.
Bell will reportedly take on former UFC fighter Uriah Hall in a pro boxing match on the undercard of Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva on October 29.
It will be a four-round contest at 195 pounds and neither can weight above 200 pounds on weigh-in day, officials said.
Both Bell and Hall will be making their professional boxing debuts and will wear 10-ounce gloves.
“As soon as Most Valuable Promotions approached me about joining the Paul-Silva pay-per-view, I told them I want in and didn’t care who the opponent was,” Bell said.
“Uriah Hall is going to feel my punching power and tap out like he’s getting submitted. He is not built like me.”
In July, Bell announced that he was stepping away from pro football to explore boxing. On September 10, he knocked out former fellow running back Adrian Peterson in the fifth round of an exhibition match.
Hall, meanwhile, is a 17-year MMA pro. He spent nine years in the UFC. The 38-year-old announced retirement after losing to Andre Muniz at UFC 276 on July 2.
“Le’Veon Bell, I hope you bring your best,” Hall said. “I know I will.”
