Now these are two fellas you wouldn't wanna get on the wrong side of. 

In the weekend, Hafthor Bjornsson A.K.A. 'The Mountain' from Game of Thrones broke the world record for the heaviest ever deadlift, which was previously held by strongman Eddie Hall. Now, the two strongmen are planning to settle their feud in a boxing match. 

The two have been rivals since 2017, after Eddie Hall, or 'The Beast' took out the'World's Strongest Man' title, and the Game of Thrones actor accused him of cheating. 

Although Bjornsson, known also as Thor, later took the title back, the two have had beef ever since. 

This weekend just passed, Thor live streamed himself from his home gym in Iceland with thousands of fans watching. He broke the new world deadlift record as he lifted 501 kg. 

Afterwards, the Game of Thrones star then called out his rival, saying "Eddie, I just knocked out your record and now I’m ready to knock you out in the ring… time to put your fists where your big mouth is and sign the CORESPORTS contract!"

Hall responded in a video on Instagram, signing the papers, saying how excited he is to "step in the ring, and do business" with Bjornsson. Watch the video below. 

An official date hasn't been set for Hall vs Thor yet, but this one's gonna be a goodie.
