For anyone who thought Le’Veon Bell was only intending to play boxing when he recruited a former NFL running back in Adrian Peterson, Bell wants to make it clear that’s not the case.
Bell told ESPN that he is very committed to a career in boxing and is committed to going as far as he can.
“I have to be involved in boxing if I’m going to do this, because it’s not something you can play if you want to be good at it. I’m not going to do anything if I’m not trying to be the best at it.” no, to be honest. I’m not doing this as a hobby. I’m not doing it just to try and make money or any kind of fame. For me, it’s more about myself. See how far I can go .”
Bell will play Adrian Peterson in his first professional game, which he says is the greatest feeling in the world, but he said he doesn’t want to underestimate his players by thinking he can jump into the deep end while he’s on set. to appear on the Jake Paul vs Anderson Silva card this weekend, facing MMA fighter Uriah Hall.
His ultimate goal is big, to become a world champion, and he knows that he will have to work his way up to such an opportunity. He is 30 years old and without a real amateur or professional fighter, this will be a long career, but Bell intends to show the public that he is putting in the work to achieve these goals as he advances in class.
And while Bell is looking to campaign in the cruiserweight division, he is looking at this weekend’s fight to take him up against Jake or Logan Paul, KSI, and then against the real world boxers.
You can’t question Bell’s goals here, but we’ll get a better sense of his progress when we see him in action again on Saturday.
