Both Hall and Bjornsson have undergone significant transformations to enter the boxing ring but question marks continue to be raised about their fitness.
However, a short format was applied to the fight so both men – who had promised explosive stops – would find a way to start the fight at a fast pace.

Hall delivered an equally confident verdict, boasting: “I come in with the mindset, ‘I’ll knock him out in the first half,’ but I’ll also be able to last six three-minute rounds if I need to. So everything is there and all the bases are protected.
“There’s no stone that hasn’t been flipped. I think round three will be the end for him. That’s what I’m aiming for.”
2. Gloves and helmets
The pair will not be wearing goggles when the event is sanctioned by official professional rules, but will wear 12oz gloves with padding higher than the 10oz gloves used in certain weight classes at the pay rank. money.
Both men are extremely strong and carry large frames but gloves can slightly reduce the risk of damaging cuts and serious injuries.
This has become commonplace among some YouTube pro players who have adopted slightly different glove rules.
