Hafthor Bjornsson Say’s He’ll Never Compete For Giants Live And Probably Not World’s Strongest Man Ever Again!
Hafthor ‘Thor’ Bjornsson recently broke the all-time deadlift world record by pulling an Earth-shattering 501kg/1105lbs as part of the World’s Ultimate Strongman. This lift made history as no other man was ever able to do what he did.
Although, he received a lot of opposition for doing it in his own gym and not in proper competition.
But immediately afterward, he called for that boxing match with fellow Strongman Eddie Hall who held the previous deadlift record of 500kg/1102lbs. Anyone who has kept up with these elite athletes knows they currently have a serious feud going on, and actually expressed interest in duking it out last year. Although, it died down a little. However, the date is now set as Hall agreed to meet Thor in the ring after things between them escalated even further.
Eddie Hall first said he wouldn’t count Thor’s lift because it wasn’t done in competition and he didn’t trust that the latter would do it honestly. So, Bjornsson came back and said he was robbed of the 2017 World’s Strongest Man competition of which Hall won.
And although Thor went on to win the very next year, it still bothered him enough to feel the need to bring it up. So this has pretty much been an ongoing back and forth between the two and now they’ll get to settle this thing once and for all come September 2021.
