Former NFL running back Le'Veon Bell is set to make his pro boxing debut against former UFC fighter Uriah Hall on Oct. 29 as part of the Showtime card headlined by Jake Paul versus Anderson Silva, Most Valuable Promotions announced Thursday.

The bout will be a four-round contest set at 195 pounds.

Bell made his exhibition debut in September, knocking out former NFL star Adrian Peterson in the fifth round.

Hall, 38, retired from mixed martial arts in August after compiling a 17-11 record. He earned victories over Silva and Chris Weidman, among others, during his UFC tenure. His MMA career came to a close with a loss to Andre Muniz in July.
