Watch Tyson Fury declare he’s ‘coming for Thor Bjornsson’ as Game of Thrones star issues ‘bloodbath’ warning to Brit

TYSON FURY has set his sights on a titanic showdown with Hafthor Bjornsson, warning the former World’s Strongest Man: “I’m coming for you.”

Muscle freak Bjornsson began flirting with the prospect of boxing the Gypsy King after making his boxing debut in 2021.

Bjornsson has vowed their showdown will be a “bloodbath”

Fury, 33, paid little attention to the Icelandic giant’s comments but wants a piece of the Game of Thrones star now that he’s retired.

The WBC heavyweight champion said in an Instagram video: “Just finished a brutal session and I can only think about destroying one person.

“Thor!! I’m coming for you, Thor. You’re getting it, sucker. There’s only room for one big dog and that’s me!”

Bjornsson – who played The Mountain in Game of Thrones – was quick to respond to Fury’s shock call out.

He said: “I f****** love this, Tyson. Me and you in the ring like f****** Vikings.

“This is going to be a bloodbath, but I f***ing can’t wait. Let’s do this!”

Fury sent another chilling message Bjornsson’s way as he went for a run on Saturday morning.

As he got the miles in, Fury said: “Thor, I’m gonna come to Iceland and set about you, you big dosser.”

Fury jokingly teased a showdown with Bjorsson late last month, writing: “I wonder if Thor Bjornsson could take a crashing right hand to that big jaw.

“Who would have Thor’s hammer? Would this mountain be too big to climb?”

Fan favourite Fury announced his retirement from professional boxing moments after his brutal sixth-round knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.

But he’s yet to vacate the prestigious WBC strap, which he’s in no rush to relinquish.
