Hafthor Bjornsson continues to train, staying ready for his next opponent in the ring.
Hafthor Bjornsson went through an incredible physique transformation once he went from strongman to boxing. Bjornsson was victorious during his first fight and is continuing to train for his next opponent. One has not been named and during this time, Bjornsson is training in different ways. In a recent update, “The Mountain” showed off his shredded abs after an intense workout in the gym.
Bjornsson built a legendary strongman career, including winning the 2018 World’s Strongest Man competition and setting the deadlift world record. Following his career in strongman, Bjornsson decided to try his hand in the ring. He defeated fellow strongman Eddie Hall by unanimous decision back in March. Now, he is waiting for his next opponent and has been linked to many names.
First, Tyson Fury has been going back-and-forth with Bjornsson about a potential fight. Fury was supposed to discuss options with his team but nothing has come to light just yet. Also, Martyn Ford is looking to line up an opponent in the ring and the two behemoths have been linked as well. It will be interesting to see who Bjornsson will take on next.
