Thor Bjornsson will face arm wrestling champion Devon Larratt on Saturday night in his first competitive boxing match.

Former world's strongest man winner Bjornsson was scheduled to face strongman rival Eddie Hall in Dubai, but the Brit was forced to pull out with an injury.

Instead, the Game of Thrones star will now take on arm wrestling champion Larratt on a card that will mix professional bouts with more outlandish fights.

Bjornsson will be a heavy favourite to beat Larratt, while the undercard will also feature crossfit stars Josh Bridges and Jacob Heppner

The professional fighters will include Anthony Joshua's sparring partner Martin Bakole against Haruna Osumanu and Australian standout Avril Mathie against Jesca Mfinanga.

Including the prelims, there will be thirteen bouts on the card, which takes place at the Dubai Sport Society.

Thor Bjornsson

"I have no clue what is going through Devon's mind, and I don't really care. I have huge respect for him for taking this fight and won't underestimate him.

"For him to come here and accept the fight on five weeks' notice is already winning for him.

"It's hard to trash talk someone that accepts a fight with five weeks to go, so I like him, but I'll beat his a**.

"I'll probably break his nose, so I'm sorry, but that's just my job.

"Every experience I have helps me. I can already feel in boxing that my background from other sports is helping me a lot with this new journey, and helping me get ready for fight night."

Devon Larratt

"A satisfactory outcome is something I can walk away from knowing that my heart and spirit was properly expressed.

"If I can walk in and feel like at the end of the fight that I fought bravely and was able to hold onto what I learned over the last four weeks, I'll be happy.

"I want a battle scar, I feel that would be a terrible thing not to walk away with. For the first two minutes who knows what I'm capable of.

"I feel like I got dropped in the middle of the jungle and I'm fighting my way through it."
