The world’s most famous strongman, Hafthor Björnsson, known to many as ‘The Mountain’, related to the character he played in Game of Thrones, is scheduled to fight in a boxing match next year against another famous strongman, Eddie “The Beast” Hall. That date was set to give both of them enough time to prepare properly, that is, these strong guys want their boxing match to bring quality performance.
Björnsson is a man known for his amazing diet, but also for his fanatical training. The 31-year-old is 6 ft 9 in tall and weighs about 414 lb, and currently holds the highest constant in the history of the “World’s Strongest Man” competition, as he has taken a place among the top three every year since 2012, which no one has ever managed. He ascended to the highest throne in 2018.
He is otherwise very active on his YouTube channel, where he often reveals details about his lifestyle. The channel is very popular, as it has as many as 472 thousand subscribers who regularly follow his announcements. The latter is dedicated to current training which included sparring with his new boxing coach. He still looks very raw and slow, but we have to take into account that Hafthor is actually a beginner and that he has enough time to progress until the match.
After all, see for yourself. See what his day in the gym looks like, and at the very end a short video of sparring.
