And after three warm-up bouts, he faced rival Eddie Hall, 35, in March of last year in what was billed The Heaviest Boxing Match in History.

Bjornsson, 34, won on points in Dubai and was in talks for an exhibition with heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, 34.

But after negotiations collapsed, Thor hung up his gloves and retired from boxing.

He said: “I’ll admit there was a time when there was talks between Tyson Fury and I, his team and my team, there was build-up but that never went through.

“Now I’ve made a hard decision and the reason why it took me so long to make this video was because this is actually a very difficult thing to talk about.

“I’ve made a decision to move on from boxing, to not compete in boxing again, to say goodbye to boxing and just not fight again.

“I had a good run, I did it for two-and-a-half years. It was nice to do so, because when I first started I had a lot of people not believing in me.”
