Thor dropped Hall twice on his way to a points victory
And he reckons he’d batter Hall’s good pal Martyn Ford
‘World’s Scariest Man’ Ford was ringside for the fight and revealed he’d “back” himself against Bjornsson, who is more than happy to test the Brit’s mettle.
After getting wind of Ford’s comments, the Icelandic giant told Boxing King Media, he said: “I disagree, I think I’ll smash him.”
Before Ford can think about facing Bjornsson, he must first get through his own titanic showdown with the Iranian Hulk.
But Bjornsson foresees only one man coming out of the contest victorious, saying: “I think Martyn Ford is going to win.

“The other guy doesn’t look in shape at all. I don’t know the other guy, though.
“But I’ve seen on pictures that he looks big and doesn’t look like he has the endurance to even go one round, in my opinion.
“But I don’t know, we’ll see. But Martyn Ford, I’ve seen some clips of him and he looks okay.”
Bjornsson looked in tremendous shape in his long-awaited showdown with former pal Hall – whose lack of training clear and apparent.
But the 33-year-old is open to rematching his former buddy, saying: “On my behalf, I’ve moved on. If he wants a rematch, I’m fine with it.”
Hall broke his silence on the defeat on Instagram this morning, saying: “You know what, I can take things as a man. It is what it is, that’s boxing.
“At the end of the day, I’ve just fought the biggest man on the planet in a boxing match.
“I’d like to see anyone else get the balls and do that.
“It’s been a hell of a journey; I’ve enjoyed it and hopefully there’s a rematch and we can do business again.

“I want to wish everyone out there.. that you’re staying safe, staying positive and you keep moving forward in life.
“The most important thing is family; this gorgeous baby [Hall’s wife] is my rock and no matter what happens I get to go home to her and the kids.”
