ATLANTA — Two men pleaded guilty to killing a former cruiserweight boxing champion in Atlanta, a murder that was part of a violent crime spree in late 2015. On November 25, 2015, former boxing champion O’Neil Bell, 40, and a 28-year-old man exited a MARTA bus near Harbin and Campbellton roads. Bell and the other man were walking on Harbin when a red PT Cruiser with dark tinted windows pulled up beside them. Inside the vehicle were Tycorion Davis and Quintavius Robinson.

Davis and Robinson got out of the vehicle and robbed the man who was walking behind Bell at gunpoint before turning their attention to the former boxing champ. Bell gave the men his black bag but then got into a fight with them. Davis and Robinson shot Bell in the chest, and he died at the scene. As Robinson and Davis were fleeing, they managed to fire an additional shot which struck the 28-year-old man, but he survived the shooting.
