HAFTHOR BJORNSSON has opened the door to fighting Martyn Ford… who is a friend of arch rival Eddie Hall.
Bjornsson – nicknamed Thor – will conclude his near five-year feud with Hall on Saturday night inside the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium.

But already the Game of Thrones star is plotting a further blow – by beating Hall’s close pal Ford.
Bjornsson, 33, told LADbible: “100 percent – I’ve seen that he is doing some boxing and he’s obviously a good friend of Eddie.
“It would be good to beat Eddie and then his friends, for sure.
“They’re fighting in April, if that goes along and I get the opportunity to fight him.
“And it makes sense I would definitely look at it because he’s a guy who is similar to my physique, my weight, and my height as well.
“It would make sense as long as he wouldn’t need too much of preparation.”
Ford has been dubbed the ‘World’s Scariest Man’ due to his villainous looks in various move roles.
But the 6ft 8in bodybuilder, who weighs 22st 8lb and fights Iranian Hulk next month, is nothing of the sort and travelled to Dubai in support of Hall, 34.

And he warned Thor of the power he is set to face during the scheduled six-round exhibition bout.
Ford, 39, told The Mirror: “Eddie has not put much out on purpose, but he is sparring and training ridiculously hard.
“He is the type of person that when he puts his mind to something he will do it against all odds.
‘Some of the videos he puts out I say this as a close friend, you question the form but power he is second to none.
“Eddie is the type of guy that will win because he is so hungry and passionate.”
