Strongman Eddie Hall tested his punch against the likes of Tom Aspinall, Rico Verhoeven, and Jake Oakes.

Strongman Eddie Hall has dabbled in boxing and plans to make his MMA debut this year. Hall has trained as a fighter and decided to test his strength in the area against some other greats in other areas. The former World’s Strongest Man tested his punching strength against some of the best in UFC and Kickboxing.

A machine that is designed to test strength of a punch has become popular, especially with videos on social media. Hall was joined by UFC heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall, top-ranked heavyweight kickboxer Rico Verhoeven, and British kickboxing champion Jake Oakes.

The diverse group got together to test the strength of different punches and kicks. Hall brought the most weight to the battle while others varied in speed and strength.

“I think weight and technique play a big factor,” Aspinall said.

“This man can throw a show quicker than all of us put together. I can guarantee it,” Hall said of Oakes.

Hall has a boxing match under his belt where he was defeated by unanimous decision by Strongman rival Hafthor Bjornsson. Now, he is preparing to take on reigning WSM champion Mitchell Hooper during his MMA debut.
