Hafþór Júlíus ‘Thor’ Björnsson has set out the conditions for a rematch against Eddie Hall after defeating the Brit at the weekend, having not only asked him to cough up a large amount of cash, but also dished out another amusing request.
The former strongmen battled it out in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on Saturday (19 March), with Björnsson coming out on top by unanimous decision after six rounds.
Björnsson was able to bust open Hall's face in the first round, and in the third he knocked him down – in what for a moment looked like it could be a KO.
He went on to knock Hall down again in the sixth round, and the judges declared him the winner, 57-54.
Now, Björnsson has revealed he’s up for a second fight with his rival – but only if Hall keeps to his word with their pre-fight wagers.
In a post-fight interview on his YouTube channel, the Icelandic star said: "He wants a rematch and I am definitely willing to do a rematch if he keeps his word.
"So he has to get a tattoo on his body which says me as World's Strongest Man on his body. Then he has to give me $200,000.
"Then I pick a charity which I will announce on my social media, if he keeps his word you know, which I hope he does, then 100 percent we will do it. If he really wants a rematch then he will.
"It was an agreement we made between me and Eddie, I think that giving to charity is a no-brainer he actually wanted to give all his money to charity. I have huge respect for that but I am actually not sure he will get a tattoo.
"I truly doubt that he will so in reality I don't think the rematch will ever happen because I can't see that happening. If he doesn't get a tattoo there will no be rematch and I am not going to hold him down and say 'get a tattoo'."
After the fight, Hall shared an Instagram video to reflect on the defeat – also saying he hopes for a rematch.
He said: "You know what, I can take things as a man. It is what it is, that's boxing.
“At the end of the day I've just fought the biggest man on the planet in a boxing match. I'd like to see anyone else get the balls and do that.
“It's been a hell of a journey; I've enjoyed it and hopefully there's a rematch and we can do business again.”
