Hafthor Bjornsson 'retires' from World's Strongest Man competition after Eddie Hall video

  • Alex Batt

In the world of boxing, there are three fights that are dominating the headlines.

Mike Tyson vs Evander Holyfield 3. Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua. Eddie Hall vs 'The Mountain'.

They are all in the headlines for differing reasons, however. Tyson vs Holyfield 3 is being spoken about after the veterans hinted about making comebacks after getting back in the gym and posting training footage for the world to see.

Fury and AJ is obviously being discussed because they are the two top dogs in the current heavyweight division, and a unification bout is what EVERYONE wants to see.

Whereas Hall and 'The Mountain', aka Hafthor Bjornsson, are in the headlines because they are set to end their long-term feud in the boxing ring in Las Vegas next year.

The two have got VERY serious beef with each other, and it dates back to the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition when Hall was victorious, only to be labelled a cheat by the Icelandic giant.

Hall hasn't forgiven his counterpart for those allegations, and even released a video earlier this month on his YouTube channel 'exposing' the fact that he didn't cheat and he did in fact win fairly.

Now, 'The Mountain' has responded to said video, and it's fair to say he's livid with what is going on. So much so, he's seemingly retired from competition.

Revealing the news on a live Twitch stream, Bjornsson said: “I’m absolutely done.


I would never in my life compete for Giants Live again, never. And I probably would never compete at World’s Strongest Man again ever and I’m probably retired.

“That was just the last straw for me, that BS video, and that Giants Live posted as well was just the last straw.

“Those motherf*****s went too far and I’m done with this. I’m not competing for those guys ever again.

“I might do Arnold, but Giants Live, never.”

If you are yet to see Hall's video, you can see it above.

Whether 'The Mountain' will actually retire from World's Strongest Man competitions or not is not truly known, but one thing is for sure, their will be blood spilt when they come face-to-face in the middle of the ring in America next year.

We cannot wait!
