Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall face off once again ahead of their boxing match.
Long time rivals Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall had a much more civil face off than their initial meeting just a few days back. With their bout scheduled for this Saturday, Bjornsson and Hall look to hype the fight up and give fans a taste of what’s to come.
Both Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall will be quick to tell you that there’s no love lost between each other. The two have had a problem ever since their competitive strongman days.
With neither man competing in strongman at the moment, the two bitter rivals have decided to solve their differences in another way.
The two rivals have competed fiercely with each other for many years, each getting the better of the other in tests of strength. But a strongman competition is nothing like a boxing match. A contest of strength is one thing. A contest between fists and the will of two fighters is something else entirely.
The Rivals Face Off
If their confrontation the other day was any hint, Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall have true anger for each other. The two decided to sit down and had a more “civil” conversation ahead of their bout…
Well, civil is certainly up to debate.
“That’s what it’s all about,” said Eddie Hall. “He smeared my win and never apologized. I am here to correct it.”
“You Fu**ing Fake Lying B*tch,” said Hafthor Bjornsson.
These are just a few highlights of the conversation between the rivals. Obviously it wasn’t that pretty. For the full sit down interview see the video below.
At the end of the video Hafthor Bjornsson closed on a determined note.
“I am the better boxer,” said Bjornsson. “I have everything. If I want to knock him out, I will knock him out. If I want to go the distance, I’ll go the distance. He has no chance.”
Eddie Hall vowed to deliver a knockout.
“I can just look you dead in the eyes, and I can say I’m going to knock you out. End of story.”
