Eddie Hall stayed true to his word and got a tattoo of Hafthor Björnsson’s name as part of the wager made on their boxing match. Check out the video Hall posted to his Instagram, where we can see him getting inked up.
Just a little over a month after Eddie Hall lost to Hafthor Björnsson in their battle at Dubai, Hall keeps his side of the agreement. Hall and Thor went back and forth for two years before they finally stepped inside the ring to settle their differences.
They challenged each other to multiple wagers including vast amounts of money on the fight, donation to charity, and the icing on the cake; the loser would have to get a tattoo of the winner’s name on their body.
Well, the day has come for Eddie Hall to pay his dues; he posted a video on his Instagram where we get to see him get a tattoo on the inside of his left foot that reads World’s Strongest Man Hafthor Julius Björnsson.
On his Instagram post he spoke about making good on his other wagers, including the donation of $200,000 to the charity that Björnsson chose. Thor will also be donating $200,000 to charity, although we aren’t clear on the charity he decided on. Hall also bet on himself to win the fight with a $10,000 wager he made with fitness celebrity Larry Wheels.
Hall is a man of his word, and after accepting his loss and paying his dues, he might want to schedule a rematch. Hall’s friend and fellow strongman Robert Oberst recently spoke about a potential rematch.
Watch Eddie Hall get the infamous tattoo below:
Hall has lived up to his end of the agreements that were in place. He might want a rematch against Thor, but we’re not sure anyone else would be interested in seeing them step into the ring again. It was a lopsided fight, with Thor outboxing Hall.
We appreciate the fact Hall hasn’t gone back on any of his prior agreements and that he acknowledged the truth that Thor beat him fair and square. We hope he can now focus on getting back into strongman competition as he’s slated to lead Team UK at the Giants Live World’s Strongest Nation event in November.
