What has been said?
Eddie Hall on Thor’s body transformation: “Thor, for whatever reason, looks like a skinny dog on heat.
“For me, it’s just stupid. It’s supposed to be the heaviest boxing match in history, and he just looks ill.
“It’s not just me saying that, I see comments all over the place from people asking if he’s sick. That’s not me saying that, but the general public.
“I think he has genuinely got a problem with cardio. I don’t think he can sustain the full six rounds. I believe that’s why he’s lost so much weight.” because his fitness levels are terrible.
“I’ve wanted an excuse to punch this man in the face for a long time. Where I’m from, if someone burns you, you bite their nose off.”
Thor: “Eddie Hall, you better be training your a** off.
“Because I’m coming for you, and I’m knocking you out – you’re going down.
“I respect you as an athlete, and I know you’re training hard, but I am going to knock you out, see you soon!
“Don’t miss my fight with Eddie Hall, it’s going to be a blast and I promise you I’m doing whatever I can to knock him out.”
