HAFTHOR BJORNSSON’s boxing match with mixed martial artist Alex Simon is off after his rival suffered a torn bicep.

The Game of Thrones star, 32, was due to face his fellow former powerlifter in May.

But a torn left bicep for Australia’s Simon has laid waste to the battle of juggernauts.

Simon wrote on Instagram: “Bicep tendon surgery ✅.

“Not the news I wanted to give but last week during a sparring session I threw a punch and tore my left bicep tendon off the bone.

“I knew how bad the injury was instantly as I tore my right bicep tendon less than 2 years ago, obviously this means my boxing match with @thorbjornsson is off.

“I wish him best of luck in his prep, rehab is approximately 6 months, another setback for myself and this 1 was hard to take after a terrible few years for me, but it is what it is, s**t happens and I’ll tick every box rehab wise and get back to competing before the year is out.

“Can only hope my run of bad luck is behind me now and a successful run is coming my way, I will never quit it’s just not in me and I will achieve my goals in time.

“When your down and out you find out who actually has your back and to the people that do I will not forget when we are rolling soon, only a matter of time, let the rehab begin.”
