The rivalry rumbles on

Hafthor Bjornsson - also known as The Mountain from Game of Thrones - recently pulled a world record 501kg deadlift.

Previous record holder Eddie 'The Beast' Hall claimed he couldn't set a new record outside of competition. In the wake of the 501kg deadlift, Bjornsson said he'd agreed to fight Hall in the boxing ring.

Speaking to JOE, Bjornsson hit back at Hall, his 500kg deadlift and those who had questioned the legitimacy of his world record attempt.


The Icelander also revealed why he didn't lift more than 501kg on the day.
