Anthony Joshua has stated that he is backing his fellow Brit Eddie Hall in his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson on Saturday night.
The pair are ready to finally settle their bitter feud this weekend and will clash in the ring in Dubai.
Thor vs Hall will take place in Dubai this Saturday
It has been a fiery week as the two former World’s Strongest Men have nearly come to blows several times.
There was an incident at a gym earlier in the week where they squared off against each other, and Thor threw an drink can at his rival when they met at the press conference.
At the weigh-in on Friday, Hall was first up and weighed in at 142.2kg, a much leaner figure than the 197kg he came in at when he won World’s Strongest Man in 2017.
Thor was next up and was nearly 10kg heavier and weighed-in at 152kg, a massive drop from the 205kg he was at his strongman peak.

Later on Friday, two-time unified heavyweight champion of the world Joshua took to Instagram Live to give his thoughts on the event.
Joshua said: “Eddie vs Thor? Go on Eddie.
“Good fight though, but I’m with Eddie. Eddie’s my guy.
“I’m looking forward to that one.”
Martyn Ford and Iranian Hulk will fight next month
Discussing another upcoming battle of big men on April 30th, Joshua later added: “Martyn Ford vs Iranian Hulk? Tough one.
“They way Martyn pushed him, I was like, ‘Rah.’ Martyn’s got some power behind him.
“I listened to one of his interviews, he talks really well. I’ve got a lot of time for Martyn.”
