Boxing Preparing for duel with Eddie Hall
Hafthor Bjornsson, better known as ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones, made his boxing debut against Steven Ward in a three-round fight.
The actor is upping his preparations ahead of his fight with British boxer Eddie Hall, known as ‘The Beast’ in September.
“What an experience! Many thanks to Steven Ward for doing this with me, what a champion, a great guy and a warrior in the ring,” Bjornsson said after the fight at Hotel Conrad in Dubai.
“I’ve never been in the ring with someone of that size,” Ward added in his post-fight comments.
Now with his debut under his belt, the Icelandic actor, turned boxer, also confirmed that he was lining up more fights before the September battle with Hall.
