Thor won’t rule out fighting ‘proper’ boxer in one year after Eddie Hall win

Published

HAFTHOR BJORNSSON did not rule out fighting ‘proper’ boxer in just one year’s time following his win over Eddie Hall.

The Game of Thrones star – nicknamed Thor – secured bragging rights over his strongman rival in Dubai.

Bjornsson, 33, scored two knockdowns, and recovered from a standing eight count of his own, to win the super-heavyweight exhibition.

He capped off two years worth of brutal boxing training – which saw him lose TEN STONE – by winning the fight of his life.

And Thor refused to rule out a boxing return, teasing a move into the more traditional side of the sport.

He told iFL TV: “I’m loving this journey. I’m still a beginner. I’d say I’m OK for a beginner, I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time.

“So who knows where I’ll be in a year from now. How much can I improve in a year from now.

“Maybe I’ll be able to fight proper guys. Who knows? The only thing stopping you is your mind and I believe I can go as far as I want.

“And as long as I’m enjoying this journey, I’ll keep going.”

Bjornsson is ready to close the chapter with Hall – but is equally open to a sequel.

He said: “On my behalf, I’ve moved on. If he wants a rematch, I’m fine with it.”

After the six-round exhibition, the pair rather unconvincingly embraced, where words were exchanged.

Bjornsson revealed: “I congratulated him, I said, ‘Thank you very much’. I said he fought well, which he did

“I told him he’s the only man that’s dropped me in the ring. I’m not going to go into details with what he said, but that’s what I said.”
