Hafthor Bjornsson took on Eddie Hall in March of this year in one of the biggest boxing matches in history.

The Game of Thrones star – who played Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane – amassed a huge following during his strongman days.

Bjornsson – nicknamed Thor – had three warm-up fights before his exhibition in Dubai against Hall – billed as ‘the heaviest boxing match in history’.

He even offered himself up as a sparring partner for Tyson Fury in preparation for the Dillian Whyte fight.

Bjornsson, 33, beat fierce rival Hall, 34, who he called out in March 2020 after he broke the Brit’s 501kg deadlift record two years ago.

He also claimed he would love to fight his boxing idol one day, even if he knows he has no chance of winning.

Bjornsson told Muscle and Health: “I know I’d get my ass beaten against Tyson Fury today, but if I was offered that opportunity, I would not turn it down.

“The opportunity to fight someone that great would be an honour for me and I just couldn’t say no to that.

“But I would get my ass beaten, that’s for sure.

“I’d need far more experience and a few more years under my belt to stand a chance against someone that good.”

In addition to endorsements, Bjornsson also won prize money for competing in the World’s Strongest Man.

He famously broke the record in the Arnold Strongman Classic, Europe’s Strongest Man and World’s Strongest Man competitions – all in a year, no less.

Standing a whopping 6 ft 9 in tall, he also spent time playing basketball in Iceland before he ultimately decided to pursue a career as a professional strongman.

No official purses have been disclosed for Thor vs Hall, but Bjornsson revealed they ‘both gave away $100,000 for charity‘.
