TYSON FURY is set for talks with his promoter amid rumours of an exhibition bout with Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson.
The pair of 6ft 9in giants have been going back and forth verbally fuelling demand for a super-heavyweight spectacle.

And former World’s Strongest Man Bjornsson – nicknamed Thor – even claimed talks were underway for an exhibition.
But Fury’s promoter Frank Warren said nothing is yet in place but does plan for discussions with the WBC champion.
Warren told The Express: “There’s lots of things being said at the moment but to be honest nothing has been done.
“Nothing will be done until I sit down with him. He’s got his tour at the moment, so he’s travelling around the country.
“Once that’s done in a couple of weeks’ time, he has a little break in-between, so we will sit down then and have a chat.”
Fury, 33, announced his retirement from boxing in April after knocking out Dillian Whyte, 34, at Wembley.
One month earlier, Bjornsson, 33, toppled strongman enemy Eddie Hall, 34, in their mammoth match-up in Dubai.
And with Fury keen on showcase fights, Thor became an instant online rival.
So while Hall of Famer Warren is not well versed in new-school exhibition bouts, he does recognise the demand is there.
He said: “I’ve never really done anything like that, so I couldn’t tell you if I’m perfectly honest.
“But there’s a massive interest in Tyson and it seems Thor as well. There’s nothing done so it is what it is at the moment.”
