It was his large measurement that introduced Hafthor Bjornsson into the limelight. The Icelandic strongman was as soon as tipping the scales at over 400 kilos, a weight that appeared to make sense given his mammoth muscle tissues and practically 7-foot-tall body. It didn’t appear potential for Bjornsson to drop weight with out shedding at the least a number of the menacing presence that made him a star as Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on “Sport of Thrones.” My god had been we unsuitable, identical to Oberlyn Martell was by thinking he had finished him off.
If something, Bjornsson appears to be like much more intimidating with out the additional weight. He’s completely shredded. I guess you are questioning, why the burden loss? We’re certain there are myriad causes for the approach to life selection, however his upcoming bout with rival strongman Eddie Corridor is undoubtedly serving as motivation.
Bjornsson and Corridor have been dancing round one another—metaphorically talking, however we would undoubtedly pay to see the 2 boogaloo collectively—for years main as much as the combat. They’ve had beef for so long as we are able to keep in mind, with Hall talking some shit in the pages of Inked Magazine.
“On the finish of the day, we’re each 350-plus kilos of physique weight and we fucking hate one another,” Hall told us. “So there’s just one means that is going to finish—knockout.”
The combat has been billed “The Heaviest Boxing Match in Historical past,” however even with Bjornsson’s drastic weight change it will probably nonetheless be true. These gents are nonetheless frickin’ monumental. There is no such thing as a means this combat is not going to be epic.
Bjornsson has been documenting his coaching extensively on his YouTube channel, but it surely’s nonetheless fairly hanging to see the photographs of his transformation subsequent to one another.
We will not wait to see the 2 behemoths face off towards one another, even when Hafthor has reduce all the way down to being solely a Quarterthor.
