Simon Vallily wants to drag Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson into 'street fight' before Eddie Hall boxing bout

BRITISH heavyweight Simon Vallily has vowed to drag Hafthor Bjornsson into a 'street fight' in their exhibition bout next month.

The 35-year-old – who picked up a gold medal in the 2010 Commonwealth Games – will pit his wits against the Game of Thrones star on May 28 in Dubai.

It will be the second time that Thor will have been involved in a boxing match after fighting Steven Ward in January.

Thor is preparing to meet his strongman rival Eddie Hall in September in what has been dubbed the 'heaviest boxing match in history'.

But the 2018 World's Strongest Man champion knows he could be in for a tough night with Vallily, who is promising to test the 32-year-old's chin.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: "We’ll see how much fight he’s got. You can shout about all the weights all you want, but if there’s no fight in you then you are going to get found out.

"It will be interesting and I’m looking forward to unloading and testing his chin and I can’t wait to put some bombs on his chin and see how he handles it.

“It’s a little bit of fun and enjoyable. I’m just going to take it to a street fight and see how big his balls are.

“It’s a bit of fun, it’s a good old tear up, exactly what I like. He’s got a lot of media attention. Hats off to him wanting to get in the ring.

"I’ve got respect to anyone that wants to get into the ring and fight, no matter what background they come from.”


Before adding: "I’ve never fought anyone that size… ever. So it will be a first and I’m really looking forward to it.

“I don’t really know how to go about it as you can’t really box on the outside. You can’t really keep your distance and box.

“My plans are, from the first bell, is to put it on him and just get stuck straight into him from the first bell.

"I think that’s the only way to approach a guy of that size is to put him straight on his toes and have a fight.”
