EDDIE HALL underwent a massive body transformation after dropping over 30kg for his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson.

The eagerly awaited clash of the titans - dubbed the heaviest boxing match in history - was originally due to occur last September in Las Vegas until it was postponed.

Now the pair will finally lock horns on March 19 in Dubai.

Both men have switched up their training routines for the heavyweight clash, having previously been rivals in the World's Strongest Man competition.

While Bjornsson, aka Thor, has been boasting of his new, leaner physique, Hall has also been trimming the pounds.

Ahead of the originally scheduled bout, the 34-year-old Brit posted before and after photographs on Instagram comparing his build in 2017 and today.

He wrote: "Left ⬅️2017 @ 196kg / 432lbs ???? Right➡️2021 @ 161kg / 355lbs ????‍♂️.

"Three years difference and 36kg lost!"

Hall may have been cutting his weight in preparation for the fight but he was still building muscle like nobody's business - putting away 7,000 calories a day.

Six meals a day are prepared for the giant by his wife, Alex, with curries, baked potatoes and plenty of vegetables on the menu.

The Beast is also undergoing a gruelling cardio regime to build his fitness for the showdown.

And he will have no trouble motivating himself when going face to face with Thor, given the pair's long-term rivalry.

Hall said previously: "Me and Hafthor have been big-time competitors for a long time.

"We’ve got a hell of a history competing against one another.

"We absolutely f***ing despise each other beyond belief. If he was on fire I wouldn’t p*** on him."

The Icelandic deadlift world-record holder, who shot to stardom as The Mountain in Game Of Thrones, will prove tough competition for Hall - but the Brit has been backed to win by fellow bodybuilder Jamie Johal.

He told SunSport last year: "I think Eddie will win because Eddie is a savage.

"It's his mentality, I think he's got more of an aggressive mentality which will carry him through.

"I think Thor, as big as he is, I think he is more of a gentle giant. I might be wrong.

"I think Eddie has the edge on a mentality aspect as he is just a brute."

Tyson Fury’s dad John reveals how Eddie Hearn ‘cost Anthony Joshua £100MILLION’ after Battle of Britain collapses

JOHN FURY claims that Eddie Hearn cost Anthony Joshua £100million by failing to get a contract signed for AJ to fight son Tyson.

Hearn, 43, announced yesterday that the dream match-up between Fury and Joshua is OFF after a breakdown in negotiations.

The Matchroom promoter insists the matter is "still open for discussions" but suggested the fight is "off" as it stands.

In a direct response, Big John said: "This is a video to Eddie Hearn... Mr Brains of Britain, let me explain it to you my friend, how you cost your man over a hundred million.

"Fifteen million step aside money, free money. Then Tyson would have gone and done what AJ couldn't do, is gone and beat Usyk and bring all the belts back to the UK.

"In the meantime, AJ could have had a couple of easy victories, thirty mil, then he could have challenged Tyson for the belt, well who knows what numbers that would have done?

"So yeah, you don't need to be the brains of Britain to see how you cost him money and put him in a position where you were on a hiding to nothing, Mr Brains of Britain.

"You've got him beat over there when he could have had 15 million free money, step aside money, and Tyson would have gone and beaten his man up for him and brought all the belts back in.

"He could have challenged him after some easy victories, free money I might as well say.

"So yeah, you're a clever man Eddie aren't you? Very clever."

On exactly why the fight has failed to materialise, Hearn told Matchroom Boxing: "They gave us terms ultimately in a date they thought we wouldn't accept. We did accept that.

"We were ready to go. If they would have signed the contract on Monday, they had a fight.

"We were asked to agree the deal by Monday, then we were asked to agree it by Wednesday. We got their comments back on Wednesday.

"We were never gonna sign the fight, and we were told the fight is off.

"So, it's still there. It's still open for discussions. But we're not gonna play a game with a bloke that's just coming out telling AJ it's off and then he's a dosser and he's gotta sign it etc.

"Have your fight if you wanna fight someone else and we'll do our thing, and we'll see what happens."

He even added that Fury has moved on to another, less appealing match-up.

Hearn added: "At the weekend, or Friday, Derek Chisora received a contract for the Tyson Fury fight.

"So have other fighters, so in our mind he's not fighting Anthony Joshua.

"We're more than happy to continue those conversations, but from what we've been told, the deadline has passed."
