World's strongest Knight

To celebrate the launch of Knight Fight, we invited former World's Strongest Man, Eddie Hall to give armoured combat a try.

 While brute strength is a bonus for armoured combat, there's a lot of skill required and we put Eddie through a rigorous medieval training routine, just like Rocky but with armour.

You have to admire the bravery of the guy who hit Eddie Hall in the face. Even if you were wearing a suit of armour would you even dare? As Eddie says, 'this really isn't playfighting, these guys are hurting each other.'
