Tyson Fury set to fight Games of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson in exhibition clash at London stadium in November | The Sun

TYSON FURY has confirmed he is in talks to return to the ring against Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson at a London stadium in November.

WBC champion Fury confirmed his retirement from boxing following his knockout win over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium back in April.

But now he is already talking about coming back for an exhibition bout against Bjornsson – who beat fellow strongman Eddie Hall in March – with the clash reportedly set for an unnamed London football stadium.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Fury said: "It would be a bit of fun.

"It would be great to get in there in front of, say, 70,000 fans and show him what boxing is all about, make him miss, and knock him out.

"We are talking to his team at the moment and it is definitely something I'm interested in.”

In an interview with iFL TV on Monday, Bjornsson also confirmed talks were ongoing with Fury's camp.

He said: “I know that there are some negotiations going on and some talks, but nothing is complete.

“If it did happen, I would gladly step into the ring and I would gladly fight him."

Boxing fans had hoped that The Gypsy King had his eyes set on the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua's rematch next month.

But Fury has dismissed that as an option, seemingly quashing it as a possible fight for 2022.

He said: "I'm not overly concerned with Anthony Joshua and Usyk in Saudi Arabia next month, whoever wins, because I've achieved everything I wanted to as a professional boxer, undefeated and having won all the belts.

"There are so many other things I can go on and do.”

It is unclear at this time what sort of rules would be in place for a clash between Fury and Bjornsson.

But the Game of Thrones star, who was called "The Mountain" in the hit TV show, did admit previously that he would most likely lose in a fight with Fury.

He said: "I’ve said since day one. When people have asked me, ‘Would you fight Tyson Fury?’, I’ve always said yes.

"It would be a huge honour for me to fight the best heavyweight boxer in the world and it would be an amazing experience for myself. 

“Would I get beat? Probably, but I would not give a f***. I would do my best and who f****** knows? I’m f****** strong and my punches hurt so if it happens he can’t take it easy because I’m a warrior, I’m a Viking, and I’m going all in if it happens.

"Nothing is impossible if you have that mindset at least."
