It’s been years since Eddie Hall as well as Hafthor Bjornsson traded social media barbs over the prospect of donning their brass knuckles and facing off in the arena to finally put an end to their world’s most powerful man dispute.
Some fans thought that the battle between “The Beast” and “The Mountain,” as it’s more generally known, would never materialize after Hall’s health forced the bout to be postponed until September of 2021.
Speculation of the bout has re-ignited since the two heavyweights returned to their separate camps, with the two fighters exchanging barbs over the phone. So they’ve made a second bet on their battle, in addition to the one they already made for charity.
“You say it is irresponsible, but you both know what we are getting for this fight. It’s not irresponsible at all,” he added. “Thor, I think it speaks volumes for your confidence more than anything.”
Here’s all you need to know about the “heaviest fighting contest in history,” which is set to take place in Las Vegas.

Eddie Hall vs Thor fight card
If you’re expecting a star-studded fight card for this bout, you’d be wrong. Instead, it’s being staged on its own, with only a few undercard fights to complement it.
That’s not the case, though. All eyes will be on the Eddie vs. Hafthor battle, which will take place in the heart of the event.
As previously said, the stakes are higher than simply personal glory when these two go head-to-head. There are no financial prizes, but both finalists will donate $200,000 to a charity of their choice.
In addition to all that, the one who’ll lose will be forced to receive a tattoo proclaiming the victor as the toughest man on the planet. He has to receive the phrase “World’s Strongest Man: Hafthor Julius Björnsson” branded on his body if Eddie fails. The World’s Strongest Man: Eddie Hall” tat will be required for Hafthor if he fails.
