Uriah Hall called out Jake Paul after convincingly out-boxing Le’Veon Bell over four-rounds of professional boxing.
Uriah Hall pushed the pace from round one, walking down the former NFL running back with a high guard as Le’Veon Bell shoulder rolled and jabbed to the body. In the first, the fans booed and hissed at a fairly low-out opener.
Hall’s ramrodding jab clearly disrupted Bell’s movement with the American football star struggling to find a home for the follow-up right hand. A triple right hand in the following round from Hall was the most significant portion of the second in a fight which mostly saw singles thrown to the wind.
Bell landed a solid counter right hand in the third after a flurry from Hall that backed him up against the ropes. For the first time in the fight, Bell managed to force Hall into taking a backwards step in what was definitely the closest round to call.
Bell looked exhausted in the fourth, clinching and leaning on the ex-UFC fighter. Well-versed in the inside game, Hall created space as Bell smothered and opened up with well-placed hooks and uppercuts. The most action came in the final twenty seconds with both men opening up down the stretch.
At the end of the contest, Hall was awarded all-four rounds and took to the mic to send a message to The Problem Child: “F*** yeah I want to do this again, I want Jake Paul, somebody has got to come out here and expose him. If Anderson don’t do it, I’m going to be the one to f*** him up.”
When the fight was added to the Paul vs Anderson Silva undercard earlier this month, the ex-Disney actor admitted he was going to keep a ‘close eye’ on the contest.
“Adding NFL superstar Le’Veon Bell to the card only increases this fight’s star power and to have him go head-to-head with a fighter as experienced and dangerous as Uriah Hall – it’s going to be fireworks,” Paul said in a press release.
“Taking on this challenge is proof that Bell, like myself, is serious about professional boxing and after his knockout of Adrian Peterson, he looks like a force to be reckoned with. Hall on the other hand has already proven himself multiple times in the UFC, and we know what he is capable of. I’m keeping a close eye on this one and may even take on the winner in the future.”
