TYSON FURY met his match while posing with the giant Hafthor Bjornsson in Game of Thrones.
Usually, the WBC heavyweight champion beats his opponent, but goes head to head with Bjornsson.
The couple, both 6ft 9in, posed topless like Bjornsson – known as ‘Thor’ – visited Fury on one of his evenings of touring nights.
He posted on Instagram: “Top performance male bodybuilder vs. me…all jokes aside is meeting honor @gypsyking101 tonight and going to see one of the sessions. his performance!
“Looking forward to learning more from the champion himself in the near future!”
Fury, 33, hit a 19th 11lb rate in his final bout, a 11-round knockout win over rival Deontay Wilder, 36.
Amazingly, in Bjornsson’s days, he as heavy as 32 STONE.
But, since switching to boxing, the super heavyweight has lost nine stone significantly, cut down to 23 stones.
Bjornsson, 33, is preparing to take on strongman Eddie Hall, 33, who he called up in May 2020 after he broke Brit’s 501kg deadlift record.
Since then, the pair have dropped weights and picked up gloves in preparation for what has been called the ‘heaviest boxing match in history’.
Bjornsson had three exhibitions adapted to prepare for feud with Hall the following year.
They battled Irish heavy cruiser Steven Ward, 31, British heavyweight Simon Vallily, 36, and most recently Canadian Larratt, 46.
And Bjornsson certainly learned some tricks from the undefeated Fury, who one of his favorite fighters.
He recently took on heavyweight Martin Bakole, 28, who trains with coach Billy Nelson.
Bjornsson posted: Four rounds with big @martin_bakole_ today and then four rounds on the bag!
“I remember in my last training camp in Dubai, doing 2 rounds with Martin was an extremely difficult thing for my endurance, now my improvement is obvious.
“I can go through four games and feel pretty good after that. It’s crazy to judge someone at his level against someone a little bit less experienced.
“I love the challenges boxing has given me and so far I feel absolutely amazing!
“Can’t wait for the promoters to announce an early date so I can smash Eddie to death!
“Let’s put some pressure on @coresportsworld….Let’s decide on the venue and date as soon as possible so fans can watch this game!
