HAFTHOR BJORNSSON has detailed what he told Eddie Hall after winning their grudge match… but refused to reveal what was said back.

The Game of Thrones star – nicknamed Thor – secured bragging rights over his strongman rival in Dubai.

Eddie Hall was beaten by Hafthor Bjornsson

Bjornsson scored two knockdowns, and recovered from a standing eight count of his own, to win the super-heavyweight exhibition.

After the six-round exhibition, the pair rather unconvincingly embraced, where words were exchanged.

Bjornsson, 33, told iFL TV: “I congratulated him, I said, ‘Thank you very much’. I said he fought well, which he did

“I told him he’s the only man that’s dropped me in the ring. I’m not going to go into details with what he said, but that’s what I said.”

Bjornsson, 33, capped off two years worth of brutal boxing training – which saw him lose TEN STONE – by winning the fight of his life.

And he refused to rule out a boxing return, teasing a move into the more traditional side of the sport.

He said: “I’m loving this journey. I’m still a beginner. I’d say I’m OK for a beginner, I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time.

“So who knows where I’ll be in a year from now. How much can I improve in a year from now.

“Maybe I’ll be able to fight proper guys. Who knows? The only thing stopping you is your mind and I believe I can go as far as I want.

“And as long as I’m enjoying this journey, I’ll keep going.”

Bjornsson is ready to close the chapter with Hall – but is equally open to a sequel.

He said: “On my behalf, I’ve moved on. If he wants a rematch, I’m fine with it.”
