After some internet back and forth regarding deadlifting world records, strongmen Eddie Hall and Hafþór Björnsson have signed a contract with core sports to compete against each other in a boxing match. I think this has the potential to be interesting, as long as they both train properly for it, both have been in the top level of their sport, and will have access to coaches who can push their training in the right direction. Hafþór has a height (and I'm assuming reach?) advantage, Eddie Hall just looks scary! I have found some footage from 2019 of Hall on pads, and it's not impressive, the punches are hard, but it doesn't look like he's well balanced, This footage of HB in the ring is a little over 5 years old, and I can't find any information on his partner, so it could just be a very big, very strong guy, against a smaller, not so strong guy who had the misfortune to turn up in a 'training to fight the mountain' top. Around the 2:15 mark he has him pinned against the ropes. takes one solid shot and moves about half the ring away, so possibly isn't up for taking lots of punches. Definitely gasses out and starts eating some counters in the final few seconds. youtube.com/watch?v=23LR6pWEpKU Hard to say without more footage coming out, and I hope we'll get that over the next few weeks, but who would you back in this, and why?
