Thor Bjornsson beat Eddie Hall on points to settle their grudge fight.
The strongmen were scheduled to clash over six rounds in Dubai on Saturday night as they finally settled their long-running feud.
The pair had been at each other’s throats since the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2017 after which they agreed to settle their rivalry in the ring.
They were due to clash last September but Hall suffered a torn bicep in training and was forced to pull out.
Bjornsson instead fought – and stopped – arm-wrestling champion Devon Larratt in a one-sided bout.
The Icelander also took to the ring for exhibition bouts against professional boxers Steven Ward and Simon Vallily with neither bout scored nor a winner declared.
Both men had predicted a stoppage win as they took to the ring after 1am local time.
But neither could deliver but Bjornsson did knock Hall down twice on his way to victory.
All three judges scored the fight 57-54 in Bjornsson’s favour.
Bjornsson was also counted in the second round when the ropes were adjudged to have held him up.
