Two years of professional trainers and training multiple times a day. Neither trained like a normal beginner. Tbh i would have expected Ed to do a bit better considering all the bravado. He needs to heal his eyes up, quit punching arcade machines, join a gym full of honest coaches and do a few real fights. Then he should go knock Thor out.


They weighed 200kg too, not a normal beginner weight

Funny to see that Eddie seems to have completely withdrawn from public life after the fight.

He disgraced himself in the build up, and couldn't back up his smack talk with any kind of preparation or performance.

I sincerely hope that's him done on social media. No kid getting into lifting needs him as a role model.

Can you imagine how he would have been if he had won?

He got in the ring and tried his best. He congratulated Thor after. No shame in that. I hope he's enjoying family time in the sun.

I seriously think he has now hit a potential real low point... He is someone that has spoken many times over about his mental health struggles etc, which he highlighted again in the build up saying that Thor's actions and behaviour tarnishing his WSM victory pushed him over the edge. This is what created the hype to build the fight in the first place.

All of that anger, negativity and s**tstorm built up and was used as fuel to power his mission for revenge.

That mission did not go to plan. He didn't do what he set out to do, and after all the bravado, smack talk and dick swinging, he spent 2 years of build up to lose.

That would hurt anyone, but a man with the personality and ego like Ed, it's potential for a fullscale breakdown.

It shows the character of the men
If Hall had won? He would be s**t posting memes every 5 mins about Thor and calling him all sorts

The better athlete won
The classier athlete won
The better man won

We not only know that Thor is the better strongman of the 2, but he is also the better boxer

Hopefully Eddie can learn from this, as he has had an unbelievable successful career and he has a great family behind him. He does appear to be a great husband and Father

I personally would like to see this 2 guys Bury the hatchet

Edit

Good video from Eddie posted on YouTube
Respectful and shows he is appreciated of getting the chance to box, although disappointed losing

Fair play to him

Skimmed through the video so may have misinterpreted (but I don’t think so)
Main points I took away

- Thor “out-boxed” him he doesn’t refer to Thor beating him in a fight
- I had a bad arm I couldn’t use my left arm
- veiled reference to Thor needing to move on from losing at 2017 WSM
- I’m a man and trolls don’t bother me but remember Caroline Flak
- won’t have the tattoo until he’s guaranteed a rematch

All very calculated and came across as trying to save face and claw back from coming across so badly recent times, without actually seeming to genuinely eating the humble pie he speaks about.

Just my take on it, I have no vested interested in either him or Thor, that’s just how it came across to me.
