Strongman rivals Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall weigh combined 47 STONE for heaviest boxing match in history

STRONGMAN rivals Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall weighed a combined 47 STONE for their super-heavyweight grudge match.

The pair tipped the scales at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel in Dubai ahead of their six-round exhibition bout on Saturday.


It has been billed the heaviest boxing match in history – and the weigh-in results prove why.

Britain's Hall came in at 22st 3lb and wore bright blue briefs as he flexed on stage.

Meanwhile Iceland's Bjornsson – who stands 6ft 8in with the nickname Thor – scaled 23st 9lb.

That means together, the gigantic duo have a total weight of 47 STONE.
