Hall moved into combat sports when he took on friend turned rival Hafthor 'Thor' Bjornsson in March 2022. However, the Englishman was beaten by the Icelander in the ring, with Hall's rival triumphing via unanimous decision.

Bjornsson announced his retirement from the sport after the bout, while speaking to The Sun earlier this year, Hall admitted it's "something I might pick up after the bodybuilding adventure again".

Hall will now take on Hopper in February when the two clash in the Middle East.
