Eddie Hall Agrees To Fight 'The Mountain' From Game Of Thrones In Boxing Match
Strongman Eddie Hall has sensationally accepted an offer to fight 'The Mountain' from Game Of Thrones in a boxing match.
'The Mountain' whose real name is Hafthor Bjornsson, shocked the world on Saturday when he broke the world record for the heaviest ever deadlift, which was previously held by Hall.
The Icelandic beast successfully deadlift 501kg (1,104 lbs) live on YouTube and immediately called his rival out.

"CoreSports just offered me a seven-year contract, I have signed it already," the 31-year-old revealed.
"Eddie Hall has been running his mouth now for weeks and I know he has been given the same contract.
"So Eddie, I just knocked out your record. And now I'm ready to knock you out in the ring.
"It's time to put your fist where your big mouth is, and sign the CoreSports contract. I'm ready, are you ready?"
English strongman Hall was quick to respond to the challenge and he gave a definitive answer.
"1,000 per cent I'm going to sign those papers," he stated in an IGTV video.

"And you know why I'm going to sign those papers... it's not the money, it's not the dead lift feud we've got going on, nothing to do with that.

"It's because you called me a cheat at World's Strongest Man 2017.
"I can't put that to bed, I can't forget it. People may forget it, but you've never apologised.
"You think you should've won that year, regardless of the trophies or not, and you let people know that."
Hall then went of to explain that he was prepared to 'rip Thor's fu**ing head off'.
"I cannot have that, that's why I'm going to sign those papers," he continued.
"Because I want to teach you a lesson. and that lesson is going to be me knocking you the f*** out.
"I don't care if you're 6ft 9in, I don't care if you're an actual giant. I don't care.
"I'm gonna train the hardest, prepare the hardest... do everything in my power to step in that ring and rip your f***ing head off.
"So Thor, get training, I'll see you in the ring."
