March 19, 2022

EDDIE HALL and strongman rival Hafthor Bjornsson come to blows this weekend in a boxing battle of the giants.

After a lengthy war of words, the pair will face each other in the middle of the ring at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium in a six-round affair.

The two former World's Strongest Man winners were initially scheduled to lock horns in September following a brutal war of words dating five years.

However, Hall suffered a detached bicep and the fight had to be postponed.

But now the stage is set for the heaviest fight in boxing history when the two rivals meet in the United Arab Emirates.

Hall has labelled his rival as a 'c***' as he vowed to knock out the Icelandic icon.
