EDDIE HALL and Hafthor ‘Thor’ Bjornsson will FINALLY do battle in the boxing ring.
The strongmen rivals will settle a long-term grudge in their rescheduled heavyweight boxing clash in Dubai THIS WEEKEND.
The bout was originally set to take place last September, before Hall had to pull out with a bicep injury.
Thor has been busy with exhibition boxing bouts for his preparation, while Brit Hall has instead trained with current world champions.
And Hall has said he believes Thor has lost TOO much weight, with the Game of Thones actor showing a far more defined body now as he prepares for the fight.
The two former World’s Strongest Man winners have both shed several stone ahead of the ‘heaviest boxing match in history’.
But Bjornsson’s transformation has arguably been the more dramatic, with the 6ft 8in behemoth losing 55kg in just two years.
Hall told Muscle and Health: “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.”
