Eddie Hall vs Hafthor Bjornsson will clash in the ‘the heaviest boxing match in history’ next September.
The two strongmen are long-time rivals and have competed in World’s Strongest Man competitions in the past.
Hall won the 2017 World’s Strongest Man as Bjornsson accused the Brit of cheating during the Viking Press.
However, video evidence uploaded to Hall’s YouTube channel appeared to dismiss the Icelander’s claims.
Now, the pair will come to blows inside a boxing ring in Las Vegas.
Hall said: “I’m training for this fight like I trained to be the strongest man in the world, no stone unturned and anyone in my way is getting milled down.
“With the experience MTK Global [the official boxing advisers to organisers Core Sports] brings to the table, this event will be even better than it was going to be.
As for the fight itself, I have zero doubt in my mind that cry baby Thor is getting folded in half and sent packing back to Iceland.”
Bjornsson, who is well known for playing ‘The Mountain’ in Game of Thrones, added: “I’m very excited with MTK Global’s involvement as this is something I’ve been taking very seriously and I want others to know how serious this fight will be.
“I’ve been extremely focused and dedicated in my training as always and I am looking forward to getting in that ring.”
A fight between the pair has long been rumoured and there is now official confirmation the bout will take place in September 2021.
