Eddie Hall Made His Trainer Cough Up Blood In Boxing Training
Former World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall has shown his punching power by making his trainer cough up blood, as he gets ready to face rival Hafthor Bjornsson.
Hall is best known for his ridiculous feats of strength and ability to lift incredible weights, which led to him winning the World's Strongest Man competition in 2017, as well as five Britain's Strongest Man competition wins.
He will become a boxer next year when he fights his long time rival Bjornsson, who, despite winning the World's Strongest Man the year after Hall, is best known for playing 'The Mountain' in Game of Thrones.
Both men have been very public with their preparations for the fight and the latest video comes from Hall's camp, where he's been injuring his trainers.
At around nine minutes into the video Hall lands a shot on 'Paddy', wearing a bodysuit, that leads to the trainer coughing up blood.
The crazy thing is that it's not the first time that the 32-year-old has injured one of his trainers, whilst they were wearing a 'body bag.'
According to his other trainer Lyndon, at the beginning of the video, Hall injured him in another session and broke his ribs by landing a shot, despite the fact the body bag is supposed to stop the wearer being in any pain at all.

The injury happened after five rounds of boxing but it's a wonder that Paddy didn't also injure his arm during the session.
Hall lands shots on the pads and every time he does the trainer has to shake off the pain that rumbles through the pads and down his arms, there's quite the power behind each shot.
Bjornsson has also laid down a marker whilst training for their fight in 2021, by knocking out his sparring partner two months ago.
The bitter rivalry comes down to the two men accusing each other of cheating. Bjornsson claimed he was 'robbed' when Hall won the world title in 2017 whilst Hall claimed his Icelandic rival cheated when breaking the deadlift world record.
Speaking about the accusations against him, the Brit said, "For the last three years, instead of answering questions about how I defeated some of the greatest strongmen to ever live, Hafthor included, instead I had people questioning whether I really won it or not.
"Hafthor Bjornsson and his entourage have been smearing my title and the referee Colin Bryce's reputation for the last three years.
"Because he was the Mountain from Game of Thrones, a huge TV star, people listened and people believed him."
