Le’Veon Bell won his boxing bout against fellow former NFL running back Adrian Peterson with a fifth-round knockout on Saturday night.

Bell sent Peterson to the canvas with a powerful right hand. The referee quickly called the fight when Peterson appeared dazed after standing up.

Although the Social Gloves fight does not count as an official victory for Bell since it was an exhibition fight, it was still a great moment for the former Steelers, Jets, Chiefs, Ravens and Buccaneers. .

Bell said before the fight that he wanted to prove he was “one of the best boxers in the world”. When asked after the fight if he planned to turn pro, he replied, “Damn, yeah.”

“Once I hung up the cleats,” Bell said, “that’s what I wanted to do.”

The fight itself was a bit of a snoozefest until Bell landed the final punch in the final round. The first four rounds featured hardly any punches of value, just very minor jabs from both boxers.

The fight drew a lot of reactions from the fans watching.

Le’Veon Bell vs Adrian Peterson fight results, highlights

Round 5

1h14: LE’VEON BELL KNOCKS ADRIAN PETERSON! Out of nowhere, Bell is able to land a fight-ending punch.

Round 4

1h13: It was a fairly even fight overall, although nothing of note really happened. It was a bit more of the same in this round, with each fighter landing a few punches but no punches with any real power behind them. Peterson and Bell are obviously strong, but it takes skill to convert that into power shots. We enter the last lap.

Round 3

1h10: Round 3 is over. A few more punches landed, but there wasn’t much weight behind them. As the announcers put it, no boxer “landed anything worthwhile.” Nothing to leave anyone impressed with his boxing skills.

2nd round

1h06: A little more action, but not much. When Bell fell, it was not officially called a knockdown, although it appears Peterson caused it. Anyway, it was yet another round with very little action. We have three rounds left.

1h05: We have action! Bell took a small fall on the second lap, although it looked more like he had just tripped.

Round 1

1h04: As the announcers said at the end of the round: “Nothing.” Not much happened in this lap. No real big punches, nobody really got hit. I wish I could provide more information, but it was an extremely lackluster round of boxing.

1h03: Broadcasters point out that Adrian Peterson still wants to come back to the NFL after this boxing match. AP says he would like to play for the Bills, Rams or 49ers.

1h02: Le’Veon Bell has a problem with his mouthpiece. His trainer can be heard yelling at him to bite him to hold him in place.

1h01: The fight between former NFL running backs is on.
