Hafthor Bjornsson Has Lost a Significant Amount of Weight in Boxing Prep

Hafthor Bjornsson has transformed his physique into boxing shape.

To enter the squared circle is no simple feat. Many people out there think boxing or combat sports is simply learning how to punch and defend from punches. That theory couldn’t be any farther from the truth.

Yes, in order to compete in a boxing match, punching and defense are both paramount. You may even say that’s the point of the whole endeavor in the first place. But to be prepared to fight a rival, potentially for a number of rounds, requires impeccable cardio, will and determination. In order to the perform your best in the ring it requires an individual to break themselves in training.

This is the kind of mindset you can find in most any competitive endeavor. Sometimes it’s all about who wants the win more.
