Eddie Hall Gets Tattooed After Losing Bet
“The Heaviest Boxing Match in History", brought together two of the past World's Strongest Man winners; Eddie Hall and Hafþór Björnsson in an exhibition boxing match that took place on March 19th, 2022. The fight included six 2 minute rounds and both Eddie and Hafþór wore bigger 12oz gloves, as opposed to the usual 10oz gloves that heavyweight fighter wear. It was made legit with judges at ringside and knockouts were permitted.
The fight between the two heavy weights went the entire 6 rounds and in the end, 2018 World's Strongest ManHafthor Björnsson beat 2017 World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall by a unanimous decision.
A few wagers were made leading up to the fight. One of which was that the loser would get a tattoo of the winner’s name somewhere on his body. Another was Eddie’s $10,000 wager with Larry Wheels, as well as donate some money to charity. Hafthor also said that he would match Hall’s charity donation.
Eddie Hall, being a man of his word, made good on both and on April 20th 2022 he posted videos on both his YouTube and Instagram accounts which shows his new tattoo getting done on the inner sole of his foot. The tattoo reads:
“World’s Strongest Man Hafthor Julius Bjornsson”
Look out for a rematch between the champs to take place soon.
