Hafthor Bjornsson defeated rival Eddie Hall in their Dubai showdown on Saturday night, with the Icelandic titan evidently having learnt a trick or two about the sport.
The strategies from the two strongmen could not have been more polarising, with Thor having put the time in during camp to learn some of the sweet science, and Eddie merely looking to wind up that enormous right hand and put his opponent on the canvas.
While Hall had some joy early in the fight, it was ultimately Thor that triumphed as a result of his superior boxing skillset, which was on full display as he jabbed Eddie to tee-up an ENORMOUS left hand which sat him down and put the cherry on top of a convincing win.
Brilliant stuff from The Mountain!
