Eddie Hall reveals ripped body in brutal training regime for Thor fight

Eddie ‘The Beast’ Hall has been honing in on getting as fit and as shredded as possible ahead of his boxing match with Hafthor ‘The Mountain’ Bjornsson.

After snagging the long-standing deadlift world record from Eddie Hall, albeit in controversial circumstances, Hafthor Bjornsson challenged the Brit to a super-heavyweight boxing match to finally put their beef to bed.

In the early stages of build-up, the pair have been vocal on their intentions and are both stepping into the ring with one thing on their mind — to land a knockout blow on their rival.

While Hafthor has previously revealed his weight loss transformation, Eddie has been less vocal on that front. While his Instagram is littered with topless images, he hadn’t backed this up with hard-hitting numbers. Until now.

Eddie Hall’s insane physique transformation

Putting Eddie’s strongman physique next to his current shape highlights the amount of hard work that’s gone into his transformation. At his heaviest, The Beast was sat at 433 lbs / 196 kg.

Fast forward some years later, and Hall says that he’s sitting at 360 lbs / 163 kg. And while he’s dropped over 70 lbs in body weight, Hall claims to be losing body fat while still making marginal gains in muscle mass.

This is, no doubt, thanks to his crazy training regime — which is based on completely high-intensity intervals for short bursts and then resting for small periods of time.

On top of his explosive training, Eddie is improving his endurance to supplement his boxing prowess. Completing the Navy Seal Fitness Test with Ross Edgley showed just how far the former strongman’s work capacity has come.

After Hafthor recently claimed his tenth successive Iceland’s Strongest Man win, both fighters now have their sights firmly set on their Las Vegas fight, which is penned in for September 2021.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
