​Eddie Hall Reveals Intruder Broke Into Home And Challenged Him To A Fight

Former World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall has revealed a 'crazy' intruder broke into his home and challenged him to a boxing fight.

Hall, who stands at 6ft 3in, said he's since installed a hi-tech security system to help fend off invaders - saying that even overzealous fans can be more 'worrying' than people think.

Recalling the incident, he told The Sun: "He put his fists up and was like 'Let's do some boxing'. Some crazy old man.

"It just goes to show being who I am does draw whackos, so the security has been a number one feature for me."

The 32-year-old father-of-two said of his new security measures: "In my old house we had good security but I had a lot of problems with people coming up to the property at stupid hours asking for autographs and pictures.

"I have had it where people have climbed over the fence and asked for pictures and autographs.

"As innocent as that may sound it's quite worrying.

"There are quite thick bushes either side of the property but it only takes one hole in the bush for someone to get through and do whatever nasty people do."

And while Hall probably isn't someone you'd want to cross at the best of times, recently he's giving would-be intruders all the more reason to stay clear, having used lockdown to get into shape.

Ahead of his boxing match with Hafþór 'Thor' Björnsson next year, the strongman decided to work on shedding a few pounds rather than building muscle mass as he's more well-known for.

As part of the health kick, he challenged himself to do 100 sit-ups every day for 30 days, along with increasing his cardio and dropping his calorie intake.

And by the looks of his visible six-pack, his efforts have been paying off - having also dropped down from around 175 kilos (27.5 stone) to 166 kilos (26 stone).

Documenting the journey in a YouTube video, Hall said: "I feel great for it. I feel absolutely fantastic. All the excess fat's gone, my abs have come out massively, so I'm really, really happy with the results."
