EDDIE HALL previously 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.

"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."
