NFL stars Adrian Peterson and Le’Veon Bell are the latest to join the celebrity boxing craze, with the pair scheduled to meet for an exhibition bout on July 30 in Los Angeles, multiple outlets reported on Monday.
Both running backs have made multiple Pro Bowl appearances and are currently free agents.
Bell, 30, holds several Pittsburgh Steelers franchise rushing records and has long used boxing as part of his training regiment for cardio and stamina, CBS Sports noted.
