Watch Eddie Hall punch Anthony Joshua protege Lawrence Okolie so hard in boxing training he's forced to swap body pads

EDDIE HALL's punching power in training was so immense it forced WBO cruiserweight king Lawrence Okolie to swap body pads.

The 2017 World's Strongest Man champion is preparing to face his rival Hafthor Bjornsson in September in what has been dubbed the 'heaviest boxing match in history'.

Hall, 33, has released footage on his YouTube channel of him being put through his paces by unbeaten British star Okolie.

And the six-time UK's Strongest Man champ has once again showed off his power as he hammered away at Okolie's chest.

The 28-year-old even had to swap a body pad for a heavier one during the workout after feeling the explosiveness of the Beast.

Commenting during the session, Okolie remarked: "Without a body bag, you’d really be feeling these shots. Those are ones you don’t take, you run."

He then joked to Hall: "You know I’m not actually Thor."

Okolie then spoke of feeling slightly intimidated by the 26st Hall who impressed the world champion with his speed and power.

The 16-0 Hackney native said: "It’s scary, bro. I’m trying to soak it and stay there, but my body’s like no.

"I know the camera’s rolling and I want to stay there."

Hall earlier this month called out YouTuber Jake Paul over a potential bout, despite there being an 11 stone weight difference between the pair.

He said: “I would [fight Jake Paul] actually. He’s actually surprised a lot of people, a lot of people laughed at Jake Paul.

"But he came out of the woodwork, he’s obviously trained very hard and he’s smashed his first victims in the ring, and he’s lined up a few more.

“Massive size difference, but there is between me and Thor, and Mike Tyson is living proof that size doesn’t really matter in the ring.

"It’s about what you do in there, how fast you are, how powerful and agile you are. That’s what matters.

“So if the money is right, I would 100 per cent fight Jake Paul. Why not? Good exposure for me, good exposure for him, and earn a few quid in doing so.

“I would probably want five minimum, £5million. So yeah, I’d fight Jake Paul for £5m. So Jake Paul bro, let’s get it on after Thor, eh?”
