Watch as Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson has exercise ball thrown at body to toughen up for Eddie Hall fight

HAFTHOR BJORNSSON went through a punishing training session to get ready for his upcoming bout.

The Game of Thrones star will take on Eddie Hall in September and has a tune up against Simon Vallily next month.

And 'The Mountain' was seen taking a medicine ball to the stomach to help toughen up.

The painful battle scars were clear for all to see – with his stomach turned bright red.

Both strongmen rivals Hall and Bjornsson have been gearing up for their September bout.

The 'heaviest boxing match in history' will see 26stone Hall take on 30stone 'Thor'.

Bjornsson will have an exhibition bout against Vallily next month to prepare for that grudge match.

The pair's titanic tussle will take place at the Conrad Hotel in Dubai on May 28.

The Mountain is due to throw down with the former World's Strongest Man Hall this coming September in Las Vegas.


Bjornsson and Hall used to be on good terms until the former accused the latter of cheating during the Viking Press portion of the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition.

Hall felt stabbed in the back, recently saying: "This is what people don’t sort of get.

“We used to be good friends. He’s been round my house and we’ve had parties. We’ve travelled around the world together.

“But what happened at World’s Strongest Man 2017 just threw all that friendship out the window.

“It was a big dagger in the back.

“That’s irreparable, three or four years with a cloud over my World’s Strongest Man win.

“What’s that cost me in terms of my career? He just doesn’t care. I still haven’t had an apology from him, he’s not denying it.

“He keeps saying he was robbed, hard done to. At the end of the day, if he’s got solid evidence bring it up. He’s full of c***.

“Thor is not my friend. He was and I can safely say, even with an apology, I don’t want to break bread with this man.”
