STRONGMAN Eddie Hall has being warned he could get 'badly hurt' if he goes ahead with his boxing fight against Hafthor Bjornsson.
The two giants were scheduled to fight in September, but Hall suffered a detached bicep in the summer to delay the fight until 2022.
Icelandic superstar Bjornsson instead faced arm wrestler Devon Larratt as a short-notice replacement in Dubai and won comfortably with a first-round knockout.
And former WBO featherweight champ Alex Arthur has some serious worries for Hall.
Writing on Twitter, the 43-year-old Scot said: "Just seen big Eddie Hall punch a bag.
"They actually can’t let him fight Thor. He might get badly hurt!
"Boxing is a life and death sport. People playing it is stupid."
Bjornsson, who played Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane on Game of Thrones, is getting ready for this highly-anticipated match-up and is putting himself through his paces in a big way.

In one clip, Hall can be seen throwing a barrage of combinations in a pad session which hurt his trainer.
