Eddie Hall vs Hafthor Bjornsson: Boxing, Date, Tickets, Stats, Odds, Where To Watch And Everything You Need To Know

Eddie Hall will take on Hafthor Bjornsson inside the boxing ring in 2022

Two of the biggest men in the sporting world are set to go head-to-head in the boxing ring for the very first time, with Eddie Hall taking on Hafthor ‘Thor’ Bjornsson.

The world-renowned strongmen will face off in a six-round heavyweight bout, something which the two individuals are attempting to get to grips in a somewhat unfamiliar world.

Both men have tasted success in the World Strongest Man competition over the years, and both have held the world record for the heaviest deadlift at one point.

Hall tasted success at the competition in 2017, where he pipped Bjornsson to the post. However, the Icelandic and Game of Thrones actor was unhappy with the result due to one of his repetitions being voided, which effectively saw him finish second behind the Newcastle-under-Lyme man.

Bjornsson holds the current world record for the heaviest deadlift at 501 kg (1,105 lb) under strongman rules at his gym in Iceland, beating Hall’s record by 1 kg set in 2016, in front of a capacity crowd during a strongman competition.

Since then, the two have exchanged heated words over the years and both have offered to settle their differences in a boxing ring to see who is the better man.
