O’Neil Bell Looks To Become The Heavyweight Savior

HOLLYWOOD, FL – One of the biggest punchers in boxing today, as well as one of its most exciting practitioners, former undisputed cruiserweight world champion O’Neil Bell is ready to introduce some of that excitement into a new division – heavyweight.

“The heavyweight division needs a savior, and I’m applying for the job,” said Bell, 26-3-1 with 24 knockouts.  “I hate to say it, but the division is a mess and it needs cleaning up by a dynamic and exciting fighter like myself.”

“This is great news for O’Neil Bell and for all of boxing,” said Leon Margules, Executive Director of Seminole Warriors Boxing, Bell’s promoter.  “Not only will O’Neil get to shine at a weight where he is comfortable at, but the world will finally get to see him at his best – putting on exciting fights and knocking people out in the sport’s glamour division.”

World cruiserweight champion for almost two years, the 33-year old Jamaica native has thrilled fight fans ever since his pro debut in 1998, and over the course of his decade in the game, he has knocked out the likes of Jean-Marc Mormeck, Ezra Sellers, Kelvin Davis, Sebastiaan Rothmann, and Arthur Williams.  But now he believes it’s time for him to pursue bigger game.

“Making the cruiserweight limit has sapped me of my strength over my last couple of fights and took away what got me to the world championship in the first place,” said Bell.  “Now at heavyweight, I feel better than ever and I can’t wait to smash everyone in my path on the way to the championship.  This is the most excited I’ve ever been in my career, and that’s bad news for whoever gets in my way.”
