Fans Spot Funny ‘Mistake’ In Hafþór Björnsson’s Boxing Training

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed Hafþór Björnsson has been making a pretty funny mistake when it comes to his training for his upcoming boxing match with Eddie Hall. See if you can spot it here:

The duo were set to head into the ring last September, but the match was postponed after Hall painfully tore his bicep during training. 

It now appears the fight will go ahead next month, with Björnsson writing on Instagram: "March it is. Fight is on. Let’s f***ing pray Eddie doesn’t back out again!!!"

However, several fans noticed a mistake the strongman was making when it came to landing his shots - as he was throwing punches at his eye-level.

As he stands at 6’7'', while Hall is 6’3'', it’s fairly unlikely these shots would be much good to him during his actual fight.

Commenting on his clip one follower wrote: "Aiming a little high to be punching Eddie in the face...." 

Another wrote: "Let's pray for Eddie while he's punching 6 inches higher than his head."

While a third said: "I think they need a higher bag for you mate. Almost punching the swivel…"

But others pointed out that he was actually ‘punching at the perfect height for training’.

While focusing on the upcoming bout, Björnsson has gone from eating 10,000 calories a day to just 4,000, losing over 50kg and looking super lean.

He recently showed off the incredible transformation in his physique in side-by-side shots taken two years apart, shocking his fans.

Posting the images, he wrote: "2020 vs 2022. Full Thor vs Half Thor. Peak strength vs Peak fitness .205kg vs 145kg."

Unsurprisingly, the photos stunned his followers, with some saying they don't even look like the same person.

One user commented: "Two different people!!!"

Praising his dedication, another said: "Wow you’ve been working hard! Unreal congrats."

A third commented: "Amazing to see bro, so inspiring.”

While another added: "Not easy to do."

Although Björnsson seems to have confirmed the match will take place next month, an official date is yet to be revealed.
