Le'Veon Bell calls out ex-NBAer Deron Williams for fight
Le'Veon Bell has his next boxing opponent picked out.
Bell, who recorded a TKO victory over Adrian Peterson last Saturday, called out former NBA All-Star Deron Williams for a fight on the undercard of Jake Paul's Oct. 29 match against Anderson Silva.
Paul asked Bell if he'd be open to fighting Frank Gore, another former NFL running back, on the latest episode of the "BS w/ Jake Paul" podcast.
"I'm not really trying to fight running backs," Bell said. "I'll fight Deron Williams."
Paul appeared on board with the idea, telling Bell, "Let's get it popping. Deron Williams versus Le'Veon Bell, let's talk."
"Let's f-----g do it, bro," Bell responded.
Williams defeated Gore via split decision on the undercard of Paul's Dec. 18, 2021, rematch against Tyron Woodley. However, Williams described his boxing career as "one and done" after the match.
Bell and Peterson squared off last Saturday at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on the undercard of a match headlined by YouTuber Austin McBroom. Bell knocked Peterson out in the fifth round to earn the win.
