Le’Veon Bell got the better of Adrian Peterson, rocking him with a hard right hand to score a TKO victory in the fifth round Saturday night at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.
Bell and Peterson were the two biggest names on the card, which was dubbed “Social Gloves: No More Talk.”
After four sluggish rounds in their five-round exhibition, Bell dropped Peterson in the fifth with a straight right that caught him flush on the chin. Peterson was wobbly as he got back to his feet, forcing the referee to stop the bout as Peterson swayed from side to side.
Peterson knocked Bell down earlier in the fight, but it a was mostly uneventful affair until Bell’s decisive blow in the fifth.
