TRIMMED DOWN Eddie Hall reveals 39kg weight loss ahead of Hafthor Bjornsson fight as former World’s Strongest Man trains with 150kg bag

Eddie Hall has carried on dropping the pounds ahead of his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson in September.

The former World’s Strongest Man has radically transformed his routine to prepare his body for the boxing ring.

Hall tipped the scales at 197kg back in 2017 when he was at peak condition for strongman events.

Earlier this year, he posted a side-by-side picture showing he was down to 161kg – a difference of 36kg.

Hall’s latest video shows him training with a 150kg bag in preparation to fight Thor, but also revealed he is down to 158kg – a total weight loss of 39kg.

He has started his 12-week fight camp in preparation for the ‘heaviest boxing match in history’.

Hall said on YouTube: “It is day one of the 12 week fight camp. Things are ramping up, or ramping down, whichever way you look at it.

“No backing out. We’ve got a plan. A fight plan and training plan. We’ve got a four week camp for when we head out to Florida as well.”

Hall and Bjornsson will settle their bitter rivalry on September 18 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

The arena will be familiar to fight fans who watched the return of the UFC during the pandemic in May 2020.

UFC 249 – Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaethje – was the first event back and took place in the empty arena.

The PPV for the fight will be broadcast via online platform CoreSports.World.

Early pricing has been announced for fans who order in advance at $9.99 (£7.99).
