Hafthor Bjornsson could be joining Tyson Fury’s training team. Len was formerly the world’s strongest man and in his retirement, he lost more than 20% of his body weight. Len followed the example of Tyson Fury, who also walked away from boxing to pursue an MMA career in 2018.
And the world heavyweight champion was fascinated by how Bjornsson sculpted his new slim physique, discussing potential future partnerships with him when they met in Glasgow a few months ago.
Both ice hockey players are working towards their respective fight dates – Bjornsson is set to finally face off with another strongman, Eddie Hall, while Fury will be returning to the boxing ring on March 26.
And that is how a fight between Bjornsson and Fury could take place. Bjornsson, who has previously said he would be interested in a fight with Fury, would likely move to light heavyweight for the occasion.
“We spoke about training, nutritional life and everything basically,” Bjornsson told iFL TV of his meeting with Fury.
“I have a huge respect for Tyson Fury, what he’s done for the boxing community and what he’s done outside of the ring, he’s a great guy.
“I like him a lot and we spoke about possibly training together, me helping him with his nutrition and him helping me with my boxing skills.
“I would love that and hopefully it’s going to happen in the future.”
