Former World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall showed off his punching power and attempted to beat the hardest punch recorded. Check it out:
On his YouTube channel Hall decided to test his own punch power against the current title holder Francis Ngannou, who is the proud owner of the world's hardest punch in the history of the UFC.
The punch is measured by something called the PowerKube, which gives a measurement in units; as Hall explains in his YouTube clip, this unit is made up of various factors including speed, force and accuracy of the punch to give one overall score.
Ngannou, 34, has a score of 129,000 units, catapulting himself to the top spot - or, boasting 'one of the hardest bangs on the planet' as Hall puts it.
For context, the PowerKube expert tells Hall that a 'good heavyweight' would usually hit around 60,000 to 70,000 units and taking a sledgehammer to the machine would come in at around 100,000, while an 'average Joe' would probably score around 15,000.
The PowerKube expert explains to Hall that the device measures 'the two measurable components of a strike, which are power - which we measure in watts - and power is speed dependent, so the faster the strike, the bigger the impact'.
Before adding that it also measures the resistance and kinetic energy to give an overall score in a unit of measurement called the Franklin after its creator Kevin Franklin.
When the Beast has a go, you probably will not be surprised to learn that the strongman and all 'round absolute unit hits a score that exceeds the 'average Joes' and the 'decent heavyweights' pulling in a top score of 113,999 - the highest score the PowerKube expert has ever personally seen.
Proud of his score, Hall ends his video by saying: "That was a bit of fun. Ten percent off the world's hardest punch - that we know of - I'm not saying Francis has one hundred percent got the world's hardest punch, but he's got the recorded world's hardest punch so that's all we've got to go by and I'm ten percent off it.
"And I think I can improve on that, you know, coming in fresh - I haven't got the technique Francis has at all.
It took me fifty to sixty shots to sort of get warmed up, get that calibre, get the swing, get the accuracy.
"So now I know what I'm doing I think I could come back and I think I could probably smash that. Obviously words are cheap - get it down."
Watch this space, eh?
