Eddie Corridor and Hafthor Björnsson Gear Up for the Combat of the Decade

The British star Eddie Hall and the Icelandic giant Hafthor Björnsson have a bad blood history. Thor said he was "robbed" when a judge at the Viking press event for the world's strongest man in 2017 had not counted his last elevator. As a result, Hall won the competition for the first time and defeated Björnsson by only one point. And when he replied to the controversy in an interview in January 2018, which read: "At the end of the day, he had his ass handed over in a Strongman competition, and the little hangover can't stand it." That's it."

A year later, however, it appeared that Hall wanted to bury the hatchet after Thor won the title in 2018, and with his congratulations shared a photo of the award ceremony.

Now it looks like Hall is trying to trigger that rivalry again. During a live Q&A in November 2019, a fan hall asked, "Who would win in a fight between you and Thor?"


Hall began his response by stating that "the past is the past" and "things were said that shouldn't have been said and things should have been done that shouldn't have been done", but they speak to and respect each other.

As for victory, when they compete in the ring, the beast indicated that it had a serious disadvantage. "But it's so big, isn't it? This 6'9" height. Big guy. "But as someone who grew up fighting and is an avid boxer, he went on:" If you arranged a boxing match between me and Thor, I could tell you that I would train for it – I would train my hardest – and me would cut off his head. Let's go, I said it. "

The Mountain replied two weeks later with a video of his own laughing at the idea that Hall could beat him up before commenting, "This is hilarious."

Now it seems that this imaginary scenario could become reality. Hall gave another question and answer on January 10, when a fan asked, "Will the fight between you and Thor likely take place?" And it seems Hall is ready to knock him down.

Only in the world of the strong does a 380-pound person count as a "little man".

Thor replied immediately and commented, "Let's do it, Eddie!" So, 2021 could be the year we see literally the biggest boxing match in history.
