Eddie Hall and Hafthor Bjornsson will finally face off in the boxing ring after two years of preparation. So here’s what you need to know about the long-awaited fight between The Beast and The Mountain.
For years, Eddie Hall and Hafthor Bjornsson have been going back and forth on social media, teasing the possibility that they put on the boxing gloves and step into the ring to settle the feud for the strongest man in their world once and for all.
The Beast vs The Mountain, as it’s better known, was finally set to take place in September 2021, but a late injury to Hall meant those plans had to be scrapped – and left some fans fearing the fight would never be a reality.
With not only pride on the line, but also a pretty sizable stake, the “toughest boxing match in history” is finally about to happen, so here’s what you need to know about it.
Battle Stream The Beast vs. The Mountain
Since the fight has been in the works for years, there has been much debate as to where it might take place. Well it will take place on Saturday March 19th in Dubai at the Duty-Free Tennis Stadium.

Battle card Eddie Hall vs Thor
With a fight as big as this, you could literally think it would be held as part of a star-studded fight map with a handful of undercard fights to back it up.
However, this is not the case. The event literally just focuses on the fight between Eddie and Hafthor, and there are no other fights to tune into.
Tattoo bet between Eddie Hall and Hafthor
As previously mentioned, there’s more than swagger on the line when the pair competes against each other. Although neither will take home any cash prizes, both will donate $200,000 to a charity of the winner’s choice.
In addition, the loser has to get a tattoo that once and for all declares the winner to be the strongest man in the world. So if Eddie loses, he has to get “World’s Strongest Man: Hafthor Julius Björnsson” tattooed on his body. If Hafthor loses, he’ll have to get a “World’s Strongest Man: Eddie Hall” tattoo.
Once the pair faces each other we’ll have the fight result and highlights for you on Dexerto, so check back if you can’t catch it live.
