Eddie Hall Has Dropped Six Stone Ahead Of Fight Against The Mountain

Eddie Hall has revealed a remarkable body transformation after losing six stone.

He's also revealed when he'll knock out opponent Hafthor 'The Mountain' Björnsson when they finally meet in the boxing ring.

Of course, it's just a bold claim, but he says he'll spark Thor out in the third round.

Speaking to Muscle & Health& Health, the 33-year-old strongman explained how he's been involved in some seriously intense training ahead of the long-awaited bout, as well as claimed he's definitely going to knock his old rival out.

In order to do that, he's dropped down in weight from the 200kg (31.4 stone) height he attained when he became the World's Strongest Man in 2017 to just 158kg (24.8 stone).

It's a lot of weight to drop, but Hall believes that it has stood him in perfect stead to fell The Mountain in the squared circle.

He told the magazine: "When I won the World's Strongest Man I was almost 200kg.

"Right now I weigh about 158kg, so I'm 40 kilos or so down.

"I'm happy to fight 158kg, to be honest. I'll probably go in at this weight.

"My game plan is to combine power, speed, agility, and endurance and I've got all four attributes nailed down.

"I can do ten three-minute rounds quite comfortably.

"I think the third round will be the end for him. That's what I'm aiming for."

There you have it, stick your money down now.

So, how has Hall managed to drop the weight whilst also staying in good condition to fight and spar?

Well, he claims that it has as much to do with nutrition as anything else.

He's clamped down his calorie intake, consume just - OK, 'just' - 6,000.

That's double what most people eat, but Hall is double the dude most of us are, so it's actually a dramatic reduction for him.

He explained: "In my Strongman days I was consuming upwards of 12,000 calories a day. That was just a constant cow grazing.

"All-day from the second I woke up to the second I went to sleep I'd have meals. I was probably eating eight meals a day with snacks in-between and lots of liquids like high-calorie smoothies.

"Now, I have four square meals a day and five protein shakes in-between to make sure I don't dig too big a hole.

"I'd say I'm on roughly 6,000 calories a day right now. That's half what I was eating when I was the World's Strongest Man."
