World’s Strongest Man (WSM) champion Eddie Hall and 2018 WSM champion Hafthor Björnsson is set to take place on Saturday, March 19, 2022, at the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Stadium in the United Arab Emirates.
Billed as “The Heaviest Boxing Match in History,” both men initially agreed on this fight after Björnsson broke Hall’s all-time deadlift world record by one kilogram — Björnsson pulled 501 kilograms (1,104 pounds) on the initial episode of World Ultimate Strongman’s “Feats of Strength” series. Hall still disputes the legitimacy of Björnsson’s deadlift because it wasn’t performed in the competition.
Björnsson challenged Hall to the fight within minutes of pulling the massive weight, and Hall accepted less than one hour later. The fight was initially set for September 2021, but Hall injured his left biceps during a sparring session, resulting in the fight’s rescheduling for March 2022.
As recently as one week before the highly anticipated bout, unsubstantiated rumors spread that the fight would be canceled again. At the time of this article’s publication, promoter Don Idrees confirmed to BarBend that the fight is on and will be live-streamed for free to everyone who wishes to watch.

Who is Hafthor Bjornsson?
Born in Iceland, Bjornsson was a center for several Division I basketball teams. He even played on the Icelandic National Team in 2006. By 2010, however, Bjornsson discovered that he could transition to competing as a strongman.
Bjornsson placed first in Iceland’s Strongest Man competition for ten straight years and won the Strongest Man in Iceland competition five times.
Things kicked into high gear when he won the Arnold Strongman Classic three years in a row, Europe’s Strongest Man five times, and Giants Live four times. He became only the second person to win the Arnold Classic three times. In 2015, Bjornsson broke a 1,000-year-old record by carrying a 33-foot, 1,430-pound log for five steps.
In 2020, Bjornsson deadlifted 1,105 pounds at his gym in Iceland. That broke the record set by Eddie Hall in 2016, and Hall has since disputed the record due to the location it took place in.
