As said above, all the stuff helps him make YouTube videos so it's an investment beyond winning the fight. Training wise I just imagine he doesn't have an S+C coach and is doing his own programming and doesn't want to appear small and weak. Being a relatively normal size wouldn't sell the fight, coming in at 125kg loses the freak factor even though its obviously the sensible thing to do in terms of actually winning

Isn't it being billed as biggest fight ever in terms of weight? Could be contracted to be at least a certain poundage but yeah both are currently looking terrible an no f**king clue what eds doing. Doesn't seem to understand what foot work is never mind working on it. Don't get it, at least do some f**king shadow boxing.

Them being a certain weight in the contract might actually be a thing.

I never considered that but that makes a lot of sense, harking back to the Pride FC days haha but yeah I bet they have to be 350lb or something that would explain it.

Still doesn't explain the lack of actual boxing practice though, would be really interesting to see the evolution of a 30 stone strongman into a 20 stone boxer to see how they change over the camp. I think that would be much more interesting than watching 2 25 stone men try and fight

For sure watched some of thor's videos after reading this thread yesterday and he seems like he is working with an actual trainer and working on some fundamentals he also looks a LOT less square so assume he has reduced his creatine by a fair bit.

Same. Hard to get excited about two non-boxers having a boxing match. Especially if they're staying big and will probably be lumbering around like a pair of oafs. Mayweather and McGregor's fight was bulls**t too but at least they're actual fighters.

And, the whole concept has an immature 'playground' feel to it. That's how I see it.

There's definitely not a train station feel to it.

There sure isn't. I could manage some degree of excitement if there was.

It's going to be f**king awful

The average pro heavyweight fight is hard enough to watch these days, in both boxing and mma

These guys will be throwing single shots and hugging all around the ring

I won't be watching it live

No interest to be honest

I'll watch fury v Wilder and AJ v Pulev and hopefully see a real cracking fight next year

Why people look at this event as a boxing match? It's a freak show.

They will never shrink to 120 kg range. Bigorexia for life.

And I think Thor will KO Hall. No idea how but he's Icelandic warrior.
