Simon Vallily says he plans on unloading and testing Thor Bjornsson’s chin when he takes on the strongman in an exhibition bout later this month.
The two men will collide at the Conrad Dubai on Friday 28 May, with the event being broadcast live around the world on Coresports.World.
It serves as more preparation for Thor, as he gets ready for his highly-anticipated showdown with strongman rival Eddie Hall later this year, in a fight dubbed as ‘The Heaviest Boxing Match in History.’
Vallily has respect to Thor for stepping into the ring for another exhibition bout, but insists he is taking it very seriously ahead of their clash later this month.
Vallily told talkSPORT: “We’ll see how much fight he’s got. You can shout about all the weights all you want, but if there’s no fight in you then you are going to get found out.
“It will be interesting and I’m looking forward to unloading and testing his chin and I can’t wait to put some bombs on his chin and see how he handles it.
“It’s a little bit of fun and enjoyable. I’m just going to take it to a street fight and see how big his balls are. He’s got a lot of media attention. Hats off to him wanting to get in the ring. I’ve got respect to anyone that wants to get into the ring and fight, no matter what background they come from.
“I’ve never fought anyone that size, ever. So it will be a first and I’m really looking forward to it. I don’t really know how to go about it as you can’t really box on the outside. You can’t really keep your distance and box.
“My plans are, from the first bell, is to put it on him and just get stuck straight into him from the first bell. I think that’s the only way to approach a guy of that size is to put him straight on his toes and have a fight.”
