Eddie Hall and Hafthor Bjornsson Reason for the Boxing Match
This fight is personal; Hafthor and Eddie Hall have had a feud since back in 2017 when Hafthor accused Eddie Hall of cheating his way to winning the World Strongest man.
He accused Eddie and the judges to be working together to choose favorable events that suited Eddie.
That’s not all:
The biggest drama was when Hafthor didn’t get a few reps counted in the viking press because he doubled dipped which was against the rules.
Eddie Hall beat Hafthor with one rep in that event which meant Eddie got some crucial points from that event that helped him win the title.
Hafthor who had been his friend suddenly turns against him and accuses him of cheating.
This was really upsetting for Eddie Hall and this accusation made headlines on every major news site.
This accusation took away the spotlight for the well deserved accomplishment of winning a major title like the world strongest man.
Eddie Hall has never forgiven Hafthor for doing that and this fight will be personal.
Both men have already roasted each other numerous times on social media saying things like they will knock each other out etc.
