Strongman Eddie Hall has been warned that he could suffer a ‘bad injury’ if his boxing fight against Halfthor Björnsson goes ahead.

The two giants were scheduled to fight in September, but Hall suffered a split biceps over the summer to delay the fight until 2022.

Icelandic superstar Björnsson faced arm wrestler Devon Larrat as a short-notice replacement in Dubai and won comfortably with a knockout in the first round.

And former WBO featherweight champion Alex Arthur has some serious concerns for Hall.

Writing on Twitter, Scott, 43, said: “Just saw the big Eddie Hall punch a bag.

“They really can’t let him fight Thor. He could get hurt badly!

“Boxing is a game of life and death. The people who play it are fools.”

Björnsson, who plays Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane in Game of Thrones, is gearing up for this much-anticipated match-up and is putting himself through his paces in a big way.

Thor’s incredible workout is paying off as he appears to have cut a massive amount of mass in a video he shared on Instagram, showing off his newly trim body.

Hall has also shared videos of his sparring on social media.

In one clip, Hall can be seen throwing a barrage of combinations in a pad session, injuring his coach.

At the end of the video, the 33-year-old also apologized as his trainer held his hand in agony.
