Hafthor Bjornsson reveals Martyn Ford fight could be next after Eddie Hall showdown, as Thor admits he’d be ‘open’ to negotiations with ‘the scariest man alive’


Hafthor Bjornsson has revealed a fight with Martyn Ford is a possibility after his highly anticipated clash with Eddie Hall.

“Thor” faces the Briton on Saturday evening in a boxing match qualified as the heaviest in history.

Hall and Thor will finally settle their differences in the ring on Saturday

The two former World’s Strongest Man winners are ready to finally settle their bitter feud and will face off in Dubai.

Their rivalry dates back to 2017 with accusations of cheating at the strongman event and any semblance of a relationship they soured from there.

Bjornsson and Hall have agreed to a lucrative boxing bout in 2020 and nearly two years later it is set to finally go ahead, after ‘The Beast’ suffered an injury and their September 2021 fight date was pushed back.

Although there is a rematch clause for the fight, Bjornsson revealed he would be interested in facing Ford next.

Ford, a bodybuilder dubbed “the scariest man alive,” takes on Sajad Gharibi, aka “Iranian Hulk,” in an equally bizarre boxing match at the O2 Arena in April.

talkSPORT’s Jamie O’Hara and Manchester United legend Patrice Evra will battle Kris Boyson and Adam Saleh respectively.

“I’m one hundred percent open,” Bjornsson told Mirror Fighting of the upcoming showdown with Ford.

“I am not getting any younger, so it would have to make sense and be as soon as possible. I’m not going to think about names, but someone once asked me if I would fight Martyn Ford. He’s a friend of Eddie Hall and as you know, my focus is on Eddie right now.

“I’m definitely open to discussing something against him if the opportunity arises. But I’m not talking about it now because I want to focus on Eddie one hundred percent. I want the whole world to see this fight and see me win. That’s why I was so happy that they decided to do it for free for the fans.
