Eddie Hall is the former World’s Strongest Man who is preparing for his boxing match with Hafthor Bjornsson later this year – and unsurprisingly has some serious power behind him.
Hall has been in training for the bout with ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones and has dropped a serious amount of weight.
In a post on Instagram, ‘The Beast’ posted a side by side image of how he looked in 2017 when he was crowned World’s Strongest Man and how he looks now.
He now tips the scales at around 160kg, roughly 36kg lighter than he was in 2017.
‘The Beast’ was filming some videos with former Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson, where Hall displayed the power he has.
Wilson posted a video on his Instagram account of him taking a series of punches, while wearing a body guard, but it still sent him flying to the canvas.
He wrote: “Taking the hardest punch in the world @eddiehallwsm .. **Disclaimer** Nobody (me) was harmed during the filming of this content.
“My advice is to stay away from this man.”
Hall is preparing for his clash with Thor in what has been dubbed ‘the heaviest boxing match in history’.
The feud with his opponent started when Hall won the 2017 World’s Strongest Man as Bjornsson accused the Brit of cheating during the Viking Press.
However, video evidence uploaded to Hall’s YouTube channel appeared to dismiss the Icelander’s claims.
Now, the pair will come to blows inside a boxing ring in Las Vegas.
They have both been training for some time and Hall revealed, in a separate video with Wilson, what his daily routine involves as he trims down ahead of their September.
“First thing in the morning is a protein shake,” Hall said. “I do a mile-and-a-half run, come back up and have 200g of smoked salmon, three scrambled eggs, piece of sourdough bread and a bowl of Rice Krispies.
“Then I’ll come down and do a two to two-and-a-half hour weight workout. During that workout, I’ll have a couple of litres of cranberry juice, another protein shake, banana and maybe a bag of beef jerky.
“12 o’clock is lunch. This is usually chicken, rice and veg. I’ll go to bed and sleep it off for an hour and a half.
“Then I’ll have a second lunch, which is a protein shake, couple of oat bars and a banana.
“I’ll do an hour to an hour-and-a-half of boxing, straight after the boxing I’ll have another protein shake, oat bar and banana.
“Then, I’m home and will have physio for an hour. Another protein shake and then I’ll go into the spa for hot/cold treatment. Sauna, ice bath and all that for another hour.
“My tea is normally chicken, rice and veg. If I get hungry after that, which I do, I try and be good and have a protein shake, but sometimes I’ll have the MyProtein brownies or oat bars, sometime that’s a bit cleaner.
“Sometimes I’ll take a protein shake to bed with me. I have six or seven protein shakes a day.
“At the minute I’m eating 6,000-7,000 calories a day and that’s nothing compared to strongman days. I was doing 12,000 calories.”
