Over the weekend, Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (Gregor “the Mountain” Clegane) fought former strongman Eddie Hall in an exhibition boxing match on the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium within the United Arab Emirates. Björnsson is a former strongman himself, and each combatants weighed in at over 300 kilos. That led to their combat being dubbed the World’s Heaviest Boxing Match.
The match was purported to occur some time again, however COVID delayed issues. All in all, the fighters have been trash-talking one another for upwards of two years; to at the present time, I don’t know if that was real or placed on for present. But it constructed hype for the match, which Björnsson received.
According to Men’s Health, it was a fairly even match with each fighters giving nearly as good as they acquired. Apparently the group was on Hall’s facet, maybe as a result of they hadn’t seen Game of Thrones…or possibly they did and nonetheless haven’t forgiven the Mountain for popping Oberyn Martell’s head. But in the long run, Björnsson emerged victorious and the fighters bumped fists.
Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson needs to pursue performing full time
Björnsson has had fairly a profession: actor, strongman, boxer. Where does he go from right here?
“I’m also open to moving more into acting, which has been hard for me to do because of strongman and obviously boxing,” Björnsson informed The Sun. “While competing in strongman, I did Game of Thrones and did another jobs but it surely was all the time an enormous problem for me.
I’d like to, in some unspecified time in the future in my life no less than, focus absolutely on performing and giving my full consideration to it, like I gave strongman, like I’m giving boxing proper now. At some level in my profession, I wish to be a full-time actor, if doable, if the alternatives are there.
I’m certain Game of Thrones will go on his demo reel.
