Eddie Hall puts on almost A STONE over Christmas weekend ahead of Hafthor Bjornsson strongman fight

STRONGMAN Eddie Hall has revealed he has put on almost A STONE in weight over the Christmas weekend.

But judging by the photo he shared on Instagram, it hasn't affected his stunning physique too much.

The 33-year-old is poised to finally get in the ring for a boxing fight against his arch-enemy Hafthor Bjornsson this year.

The two giants were scheduled to fight in September, but Hall suffered a detached bicep in the summer to delay the fight until 2022.

Sharing a Christmas pose photo on Instagram, Hall wrote: "5kg / 11lbs on over the Xmas weekend!!!

"Weighed in at 163kg today and fair to say the run was a little harder this morning but training legs was a breeze.

"My nutritionist said I could eat and drink whatever I wanted…. Well after a year of chicken, rice and veg I think my body and mind needed it!

"Hope everyone enjoyed themselves and spent some quality time with the family."

Icelandic superstar Bjornsson instead faced arm wrestler Devon Larratt as a short-notice replacement for Hall in Dubai and won comfortably with a first-round knockout.

And former WBO featherweight champ Alex Arthur has some serious worries for Hall.

Writing on Twitter, the 43-year-old Scot said: "Just seen big Eddie Hall punch a bag.

"They actually can’t let him fight Thor. He might get badly hurt!

"Boxing is a life and death sport. People playing it is stupid."

Bjornsson, who played Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane on Game of Thrones, is getting ready for this highly-anticipated match-up and is putting himself through his paces in a big way.
