EDDIE HALL has shown off his stunning body shred after dropping over 30kg for his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson.
The eagerly awaited clash of the titans – dubbed the heaviest boxing match in history – will take place in Las Vegas this September.
Both men have switched up their training routines for the heavyweight clash, having previously been rivals in the World’s Strongest Man competition.
While Bjornsson, aka Thor, has been boasting of his new, leaner physique, Hall has also been trimming the pounds.
The Brit, 32, posted before and after photographs on Instagram comparing his build in 2017 and today.
He wrote: “Left 2017 @ 196kg / 432lbs Right2021 @ 161kg / 355lbs .
“Three years difference and 36kg lost!”
Hall may be cutting his weight in preparation for the fight but he is still building muscle like nobody’s business – putting away 7,000 calories a day.
Six meals a day are prepared for the giant by his wife, Alex, with curries, baked potatoes and plenty of vegetables on the menu.
The Beast is also undergoing a gruelling cardio regime to build his fitness for the showdown.
And he will have no trouble motivating himself when going face to face with Thor, given the pair’s long-term rivalry.
Hall said last year: “Me and Hafthor have been big-time competitors for a long time.
“We’ve got a hell of a history competing against one another.
“We absolutely f***ing despise each other beyond belief. If he was on fire I wouldn’t p*** on him.”
The Icelandic deadlift world-record holder, who shot to stardom as The Mountain in Game Of Thrones, will prove tough competition for Hall – but the Brit has been backed to win by fellow bodybuilder Jamie Johal.
He told SunSport in November: “I think Eddie will win because Eddie is a savage.
