Ever since his last bout, Tyson Fury has been constantly raising various theories about his potential return. Officially, Tyson Fury is currently a retired boxer, but it is more than clear that we will see him in the ring at least one more time.
Whether it will be in a match against the winner between Joshua and Usyk or whether it will be an exhibition against Francis Ngannou is hard to say at this point. Fury changes his mind almost from day to day, and now he's got an idea for an exhibition that hasn't been talked about before.
Namely, Fury would love to box against Hafthor "Thor" Bjornsson. This is a world-famous strongman who gained great popularity through the role of Mountain in the cult series Game of Thrones. The 33-year-old Icelander has a truly imposing physique.
He is 205 centimeters tall and weighs about 150 kilograms. In 2018, he was awarded the title of the strongest man in the world (World's Strongest Man), and at the same competition, he won the medal seven more times. In the period from 2012 to 2019, he was on the podium every time.
"I know that there are some ongoing negotiations and some talks, but nothing has been finalized. If that actually happened, I would happily step into the ring and I would happily fight it," Bjornsson said, speaking to the IFL.
TV. "I've been saying it since day one. When people ask me, 'Would you like to fight Tyson Fury?', I always say yes. It will be a great honor for me to fight the best heavyweight boxer in the world and it will be an amazing experience.
normal for me." "Would I be beaten? Maybe, but I wouldn't care. I'll do my best and who knows? I'm very strong and my punches hurt so if that happens he can't calm down because I'm a warrior, I'm a Viking and I will do everything if that happens."
The Icelander actually followed up on Fury's statements, who first pointed out that this match was possible.

"It's going to be a bit of fun.
It would be great to be there in front of, say, 70,000 fans and show him what boxing is, make him miss, and knock him out," Fury told The Telegraph. "We're talking to his team at the moment and it's definitely something I'm doing.
I'm interested," he continued. There is no doubt that such an exhibition would attract the interest of the public, but the difference in boxing skills is enormous and all "Mountain" would have is the least possible chance of surprise in that match.
