Eddie Hall responds after UFC icon Joe Rogan blasts his 'terrible' boxing technique ahead of Hafthor Bjornsson fight
EDDIE HALL says he took 'no offence' after Joe Rogan slammed his 'terrible' boxing technique ahead of his fight with Hafthor Bjornsson.
The British former strongman faces rival Bjornsson in September, in a fight billed as the 'heaviest boxing match in history'.
In preparation, Hall uploaded videos of his training, but was hit with criticism by UFC commentator Rogan.
But he responded on his YouTube channel: “I love Joe Rogan, I absolutely do love Joe Rogan
“Look man, people can speculate, they can make assumptions, they can guess, they can do whatever they want, but I’m knocking Thor out.
"There’s no doubt in my mind. So, people can say whatever they want.
“I take no offence to Joe Rogan’s comments. He’s an experienced guy, he knows what he’s talking about, but he doesn’t know the full picture.
"You look at a few clips, you can’t make assumptions from that.
“It doesn’t bother me in the slightest, it doesn’t put me off. I hope it gives Thor more confidence, because he needs it.
"He’s in deep trouble. And I’d still love to go on The Joe Rogan Show and tell him a story for everyone to hear.”
The response comes after Rogan and and guest, CrossFit legend Mat Fraser, watched some footage of Hall’s recent training.
He said: “That’s not good. Right away we’re seeing that we have a real problem. Yeah, this is terrible.
"He’s very rudimentary, but also you see that his body is very stiff. Looking at him sparring there, he’s just not moving so good
"This is super stiff. He’s throwing these punches with his arms. These are arm punches, almost like he shouldn’t be hitting things.”
