Tyson Fury has proven over the years that not many Heavyweight fighters can take him on a fight, the man is undefeated after all. Although he has been taken down by fighters like Deontay Wilder or Vladimir Klitschko, Tyson Fury has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. For many, there is an argument of the ‘Gypsy King’ has a size too big even for regular Heavyweights.
No other fighter he’s ever faces has matches his height, but Hafthor Bjornsson is equally 6′ 9″. The only part where ‘The Mountain’ is lacking can definitely be on his boxing skills, he is far slower than Tyson Fury and this wouldn’t be a fair fight. However, Bjornsson is not shying away from a challenge that the ‘Gypsy King’ just issued to the Strong Man World Champion.
How did Tyson Fury challenge Thor Bjornsson?
Fury decided to take his smack talk to Instagram through his IG stories, he wrote a clear challenge as he posted a picture of Thor’s impressive physique. This is what Fury wrote: “I wonder if Thor Bjornsson can take a crashing right hand to that big jaw? Who would have Thor’s hammer? Would this mountain be too big to climb?”
Thor saw the story and raised responded to the challenge with a classic quote: “What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Maybe we’ll find out.” But this might just never go past the smack talk from either one of them. There is only one way in which Tyson Fury will ever entertain fighting someone who isn’t a professional boxer.
Should Tyson Fury make a decision to fight one of the biggest and most muscular humans on the planet, it should be definitely wirth his while. If the money is there, Fury will step into the ring while still technically retired to go a few rounds with ‘The Mountain’. He should rest easy that Thor won’t attempt to penetrate his massive fingers through Fury’s skull as it happened on ‘Game of Thrones’.
But if Tyson Fury does take a crack at this celebrity boxing, Thor Bjornsson would definitely be a great box office draw just for his size alone. In previous boxing matches, he’s out boxed and outclassed all his opponents. Fury should be the biggest challenge of his short boxing career.
