Bell’s Misfits Boxing debut will be his third boxing match, following an amateur bout against fellow NFL star Adrian Peterson at Social Gloves 2 in September 2022 and a pro bout with former UFC middleweight contender Uriah Hall the following October on the Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva undercard.
In his amateur debut, Bell scored a spectacular knockout of Peterson in the fifth-round. After four rounds of poor action, Bell lost his pro debut to Hall.
JMX has gone 4-0 to start his boxing career. In his most recent outing at Misfits Boxing 2 this past October, he defeated TikTok celebrity Ginty via third-round knockout in an exhibition bout.
Watch that finish here.
