Video: This World Deadlift Championships promo has us extremely excited for Eddie vs Benni 2....

If, like us, you love to watch Viking-esque blokes lifting massive weights, you're in for a treat.

The epic Giants Live World Deadlift Championships promo video is out  - and it's packed with beards, bellies and biceps.

The battle is being billed as Eddie Hall vs Benni Magnusson 2.

British strongman Eddie will take on the Icelandic monster again after he famously dropped a world record-equalling weight and was disqualified.

(He did go on to beat the world record in front of Arnold Schwarzenegger earlier this year.)


These two whoppers aren't the only juggernauts competing - Thor Bjornsson, who plays the Mountain in Game of Thrones, will be having a crack along with current World's Strongest Man Brian Shaw.

There was only one place they could have held this war of supreme strength - er, Leeds.

JOE cannot wait to see if one of these monsters breaks the half ton deadlift.
