Eddie Hall Has Taken Up Boxing And Promises To KO His Biggest Rival


OK, so Eddie Hall wants to fight, which seems like something 2017’s World’s Strongest Man wouldn’t be so bothered about proving capable of.

Alas, Hall, maybe the most jacked person I’ve ever seen, has let fans in on a video of him in a sparring session.

There’s something about professional swoledom that even the biggest cynic can appreciate.

With an actor, for example, it’s fairly certain away from the cameras they’ll more or less eat like us, and drink as much as we do, and have conversations not too dissimilar from what you and your mates do on Friday nights. But a strongman won’t. Eddie Hall might have banter, and indeed enjoy a pint, but you won’t see anyone like him in your local.

His job is to be gigantic and strong aka objectively brilliant.

Anyhow, he recently wrote on Instagram:

So as part of my mission to drop weight iv been boxing twice weekly and the speed and coordination is coming back slowly…..
This was at the end of an hour long session, 1 minute rounds with 1 minute rest, continuously for 1 hour solid.
I think me and @robertoberst should jump in a ring and raise some money for charity especially after seeing that pathetic excuse just put a boxing video up. (Cringe) what you guys saying?
Big Love
The Beast

So yeah, the Beast is gonna probably become a boxer. And why shouldn’t he?

Check out this video:

He told The Malestrom in June:

For me being the World’s Strongest Man I had to compete at such a huge bodyweight, so 32 stone. To go after another title and maintain that bodyweight and potentially get even bigger and stronger was such a huge risk to my life, not just my health, my life. I feel like that risk outweighed the return.

So for that reason it’s so easy for me to say, you know what I achieved my dream, I’ve won World’s Strongest Man, I’ve done what I needed to do in the sport and I’m walking away a champion and also I’m capitalising on the win.

He added:

The missus is happy I’m taking a step back from strongman, but it’s swings and roundabouts, I’m just as busy now, in fact busier than I was before, but it’s on my terms, I can work when I want, I don’t have to be forced to do anything. And I’ve had a holiday, a family holiday, the first f***ing one in eight years.

If I want a day off I’ll cancel something and have a day off. Yes, I’m busier than I ever was but it’s for a very good reason, It’s setting my whole family up for a great future and I’m very proud to be able to do that.
