Former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell will both appear in a heavyweight boxing event. Sports reporters at ESPN said that both Peterson and Bell were put under contract to fight on July 30 at Crypto.com arena in Los Angeles, California.
The match-up is so happening because the two former all-pro running backs are being allowed to box each other during an ‘exhibition’, which means it is not their first official fight as professional boxers.
