Eddie Hall once knocked Olympic medallist off his feet with big right hand and revealed diet behind body transformation for Hafthor Bjornsson fight before injury


Before injury ruled him out of a fight against Hafthor Bjornsson, Eddie Hall was getting into the Olympic spirit. Sort of.

The former World’s Strongest Man, had been in training for his boxing match with Thor aka ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones and dropped a serious amount of weight in the process.

However, a detached bicep has forced him to withdraw from the fight – dubbed the ‘heaviest in boxing history’ – and he now hopes to enter the ring in 2022.

Tipping s the scales at around 160kg, he is roughly 36kg lighter than he was in 2017.

And to show his preparation for his foray into boxing, ‘The Beast’ filmed videos earlier this year with former Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson, where Hall displayed the power he has.

Wilson, who created history at Rio 2016 when he became the first Briton to claim an Olympic medal on the horizontal bar, winning bronze, posted a video on his Instagram account of him taking a series of punches, while wearing a body guard from Hall.

After picking himself up off 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 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,” he explained. “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.”

Both Hall and Thor have been training heavily for their fight in a bid to settle their feud.

The apparent beef 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.

The pair had hoped to settle their differences in the ring in September, but that will now have to wait.
