Eddie Hall is getting prepped for his boxing match with Hafthor Bjornsson.
Both Eddie Hall and Hafthor Bjornsson have a score to settle. After years on the strongman circuit, both men have grown to dislike each other. From the 2017 World’s Strongest Man controversy to the recent 501 kg deadlift challenge, Hall and Bjornsson have constantly traded barbs.
Now the two have decided to settle their differences the old fashioned way. Eddie Hall and Hafthor Bjornsson are set to fight in September 2021.
In response, Hafthor Bjornsson has been training hard to prepare for the fight. “The Mountain” shared his current progress in a post to social media last week. The massive Icelandic strongman also confirmed that he was retiring from the World’s Strongest Man competition. With his retirement he’s hoping to focus all his efforts on the upcoming boxing match.
Already retired from competition, Eddie Hall has been following that same blueprint. Now the 2017 World’s Strongest Man has opted to post his own boxing training.
