Hafthor Bjornsson Defeats Devon Larratt By Technical Knockout

Thor Bjornsson defeated Devon Larratt and this is how you can watch!

2018 World’s Strongest Man Hafthor “Thor” Bjornsson will do battle this weekend against multiple-time arm wrestling champion Devon Larratt. It’s a showdown of strength athletes that no one thought they’d see.

In what was supposed to be a battle between strongman rivals Eddie Hall and Thor Bjornsson has now taken a different turn. After suffering a bicep injury, Hall was forced to withdraw from the match leaving Thor without an opponent for their proposed September showdown. That is until arm wrestler Devon Larratt stepped up to the plate.

The battle set to take place in Dubai should be a battle of heavy hitters. Thor Bjornsson has been working on his boxing skills with consistency for over a year and a half now and has made some great strides. The skills he’s been able to build have been truly impressive and show that he has more than enough talent to acquit himself well against professional boxers. Devon Larratt on the other hand has little to no boxing experience.

The champion arm wrestler recently admitted he’s a terrible boxer ahead of his match with Thor Bjornsson. While arm wrestlers are known for their immense strength, you need more than power to be able to be a successful boxer. Devon Larratt certainly has a uphill battle ahead of him.
