The 33-year-old passed Hall and was a worthy winner after showing his superior ability.

Thor shared some clips on YouTube of him warming up before the fight, including practicing the shot that knocked his rival down during the fight.

It was a game plan perfectly executed for the Icelandic superstar but there’s a chance the pair could fight again.

Björnsson confirmed to talkSPORT ahead of the fight that the contract includes a rematch clause and that he would be willing to meet a second time if either side is not happy with the result.

There was talk of Hall wanting to avenge his defeat and Thor said after the fight that he was willing to give his rival that opportunity.

But he admitted he doesn’t really want a rematch as it’s time to break away from their feud, which dates back to 2017.

Thor said on his YouTube channel: “I’m not sure if Eddie wants a rematch but I will. I told him that and told other people too. I’ve told people who have interviewed me that I will.

“I’m 100 percent in. If he wants a rematch and he deserves a rematch [I’ll do it].

“He fought 100 percent well.”

When asked what was said between the two in the ring, he added: “I’m not going to comment too much on what he said, but I’ve moved on. I’ve moved on since 2017.

“I told him ‘Nice job.’ It’s been one hell of a fight and congratulations to him on all the hard work he’s put in over two years.

“I respect him as an athlete but I just want to keep going. Just between us guys I wouldn’t really want a rematch as I want to continue.

“I really don’t want to communicate with him anymore while I’ve moved on. I’m not saying we’ll be best friends, that’s just a fact.

“I made 100 percent progress. If he wants a rematch, I give him 100 percent.”
