Uriah Hall, NFL star Le’Veon Bell to make boxing debuts on Jake Paul card

Former UFC middleweight Uriah Hall and NFL star Le’Veon Bell will make their professional boxing debuts on the undercard of the upcoming Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva fight card on October 29.

The matchup was first reported by ESPN. The bout will pair Hall (17-11 in MMA) and the three-time Pro Bowl running back who played for nine seasons in the NFL.

Bell made a successful amateur boxing debut this past September with a fifth-round knockout of fellow NFL standout Adrian Peterson at Social Gloves 2 in Los Angeles.

Hall announced his retirement from professional mixed martial arts just two months ago.

“It is with great sadness that I will be stepping away from the greatest sport in the world. I’m going to miss the incredible UFC staff that has became like family and the mentors I have met along the way. The UFC has given me the Best opportunity to step completely outside my comfort zone. Throughout the years I’ve gone up against some of the best in the world at the highest level. Although I did not achieve the rank of world champion i’ve acquired some of my greatest achievements from mixed martial arts and that was facing my fears and being a champion in life. I want to thank the incredible fans, you guys made the sport what it is today. It is important to have the right people around you that care for you and encourage you to become a better version of yourself. I want to thank my team my coaches my friends and my family always standing by me. You all have been the driving force that encouraged me daily. Lastly, I want to specifically thank Dana White for giving me the opportunity to collide with modern day gladiators. Thank you for always supporting me thru the good and the bad…To the next generation you are the top 1% greatest athlete’s on the planet. Will be a pleasure to watch where you all take this sport from here. I will be watching! Goforth 🙏🏿.”

The bout will be contested over four rounds at a catchweight of 195 pounds.

Paul vs. Silva takes place at Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale, Arizona.
