Man Takes A Punch Off World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall And It Doesn't End Well

Man Takes A Punch Off World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall And It Doesn't End Well

Retired 132lb gymnast Nile Wilson took on the former World's Strongest Man and probably wished he hadn't very soon after.

Former Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson decided to take a punch from former World's Strongest Man Eddie Hall, and needless to say, it didn't seem like his wisest move. Watch for yourself here:

YouTuber and retired Olympic gymnast Wilson, who is 5ft 6in and 132lbs, must have known he wouldn't stand a chance against Hall, who clocks in at 6ft 3in and 350lbs.

For reasons best known to himself, Wilson decided to accept a free shot to the torso from a man who once managed to deadlift more than 1,100lbs - nearly 10 times Nile's weight.

At the beginning of the full clip, which is on YouTube, Wilson takes a shot at Hall to start them off.

Of course, it barely touches Hall, who explains: "The thing is, mate, I train - with my training, I'll hang on a bar and my training partner will smash me in the gut. Obviously, as you can see, I've also got a massive wall of thick muscle there."

He flexes his abs, which then leads to the pair getting in the ring for a sparring session, before getting serious.

After Wilson tries his best - and fails - to land a jab, the pair get down to business.

With the former gymnast wearing a protective layer around his middle, Hall asks him: "Do you feel safe and that?"


To which an uncertain Wilson responds: "I don't know."

Hall goes with a light jab to the chest, which, despite him wearing a huge protective harness around his body, knocks Wilson straight to the ground.

He says: "My brain hit the back of my head."

Hall progresses his shots slightly each time, but the final one lifts Wilson off the ground, sending him straight onto his back against the ropes.

It looks as though he should have whiplash at the very least, after the slow motion replay. But after the final shot, he lies on the ground, looking like he's gotten away with a mild concussion.

While he stares at the ceiling looking dazed, Hall says: "I think I might have actually knocked him out..."

He looks down at Wilson and asks if he's OK, receiving the unconvincing reply: "I'm alright, yeah."

Wilson's followers were amazed by the show of strength.

One replied: "He stared death in the eyes."

Another commented: "People say size doesn't matter."

While others just compared Hall to Thor.

Recently, Hall intensified his fierce rivalry with Hafthor Bjornsson, as he called his boxing debut the 'biggest load of s**t' that has happened in the sport.

Bjornsson, who is best known for playing Gregor Clegane ('The Mountain') in Game of Thrones, stepped into the squared circle for the first time in January.
