Eddie Vs Thor: Weighing

Eddie Hall is hoping to take inspiration from Tyson Fury for his fight with Thor Bjornsson tonight.

Hall and fellow former strongman Bjornsson will finally put on gloves in the ring tonight after years of trash talk.

The rivals were due to meet last September but Hall was forced to pull out after tearing a bicep.

Six months later, they will finally trade blows in Dubai to settle their beef, which has been threatening to overcook since the 2017 World’s Strongest Man competition.

And Hall filled up on last-minute reading as he relaxed at his hotel while reading Fury’s latest book.

“Six hours from the fight relaxing and chilling reading from the best,” Hall captioned a photo.

Bjornsson and Fury have previously met when the world heavyweight champion toured the UK following his win Deontay Wilder last year.

And Bjornsson admitted he couldn’t turn down a fight with the Brit if it was offered.

“A lot of people actually asked me if I would fight Tyson Fury?’” Bjornsson said during a Q&A on his YouTube channel.

“Now would I fight the best boxer in the world? Absolutely, if the offer is there, one hundred percent. Why shouldn’t I, I couldn’t say no to that.

“I have a lot of respect for the guy and I love the guy. Great guy… I’ve actually met him before and if that offer were to come on the table I would 100% check it out and I honestly might just do it. I can’t say no to that. I’d bust my ass and surprise the world.”

Hall and Bjornsson were kept apart at Thursday’s weigh-in after their press conference nearly ended in a brawl.

Bjornsson was the heavier of the rivals when they stepped on the scales at 10kg, with the men combined weighing in excess of 600lbs.

They will meet tonight in six three-minute rounds, with the match taking place under professional boxing rules.
