Le’Veon Bell has his next boxing matchup.

Misfits Boxing CEO KSI announced Saturday that the NFL star is set to fight Joel Morris — better known as YouTube personality “JMX” — on the upcoming Misfits Boxing 6 event on April 21 in New Orleans. A venue for the event was not announced.

See KSI’s tweet below.

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. Bell’s pro debut didn’t go as smoothly as he lost a decision to Hall following four lackluster rounds of subpar action.

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.
