Hafthor Bjornsson admits he ‘hasn’t been this light and skinny in years’ as he prepares to make his debut as a boxer.

It should have been Thor facing his arch nemesis, Eddie Hall, in ‘the heaviest boxing match in history’, but that has been pushed back to 2022.

Hall suffered a detached bicep and needed surgery to fix the problem, but he is well on the road to recovery.

Rather than wait, The Mountain decided to draft in a late replacement in the shape of arm wrestling superstar Devon Larratt.

The pair will clash in Dubai, on 18 September, after the fight card was moved from Florida over concerns about coronavirus.

Thor is certainly not taking his foray into boxing lightly and has completely transformed his body to get in shape for the ring.

He posted a picture on Instagram showing his body looking seriously ripped and added the caption: “Haven’t been this light and skinny in years. Feels good.”

In an interview with Virgin Radio Dubai, Thor revealed he was now down to 150kg from 205 – a quite stunning drop of 55kg, which is around eight and a half stone.

His training regime and diet has been overhauled compared to his days training as a strongman.

The former World’s Strongest Man revealed what a typical day of eating consisted of.

“Breakfast is two eggs, some oatmeal and blueberries. That’s about it. I have 200g of chicken as well,” Thor explained.

“Then at lunch I have 230g of beef tenderloin with some 140g of rice and some vegetables. 

“The third meal is chicken again, 230g again roughly with 200g of potatoes and 100g of vegetables.

“The fourth meal is salmon, 230g with 100g of rice. 

“I love food. It’s my biggest weakness. I love pizza and burgers. I’m a big ice cream guy too.

“I honestly love meat. I could eat steak every day.”

Thor is not the only one to have undergone a remarkable transformation as his rival Hall has shed 42kg.

The Beast’s injury has merely delayed the fight as a large part of the work has already been done in getting ready.

He told Muscle and Health: “When I won the World’s Strongest Man I was almost 200kg. 

“Right now I weigh about 158kg, so I’m 40 kilos or so down. 

“I’m happy to fight 158kg, to be honest. I’ll probably go in at this weight.”

To do this, Hall slashed his daily calorie intake from around 12,000 to 6,000 and the results are clear to see.

He added: “All-day from the second I woke up to the second I went to sleep I’d have meals. I was probably eating eight meals a day with snacks in-between and lots of liquids like high-calorie smoothies. 

“Now, I have four square meals a day and five protein shakes in-between to make sure I don’t dig too big a hole. 

“I’d say I’m on roughly 6,000 calories a day right now. That’s half what I was eating when I was the World’s Strongest Man.”
