Eddie Hall vs Mitchell Hooper tale of the tape: How World’s Strongest Man stars compare ahead of February super-fight

THINGS are about to get very physical next month when two of the world’s strongest men collide.

It was confirmed this week that Eddie Hall, the 2017 World’s Strongest Man winner, will face reigning champ Mitchell Hooper.

Hall is now a hugely-popular social media personality with over five million followers, while his rival only has 183,000 on Instagram so far.

But that could all change when he goes one-on-one with the Brit under MMA rules as part of a four-man tournament.

Hall has regularly trained for both boxing and MMA fights and last year he took on Game Of Thrones actor Hafthor Bjornsoon in a huge boxing match.

He lost that bout via unanimous decision, leaving him with 0-1 record, but now he will be hoping his huge 434lb frame can help him secure that first fighting victory.

However, he will face just as big a challenge against Hooper.

‘Moose’ will also be making his MMA debut, but unlike ‘The Beast’, he has no previous fighting experience to call on.

The 320lb Canadian star will also potentially face a huge disadvantage when it comes to weight.

But he will have been buoyed after footage emerged this week of Hall getting DROPPED with a brutal head kick in sparring for his MMA bow.
