Thor Bjornsson vs. Devon Larratt
Sport Society in Dubai 18/9/21
Game of Thrones star and 2018 World’s Strongest Man Thor Bjornsson returns to the ring next week for his latest showdown – taking on Devon Larratt, who is widely-regarded as one of the best arm wrestlers of all time.
The two men will headline a stacked card at Sport Society in Dubai on Saturday 18 September, and will be broadcast live on CoreSports.World.
Ahead of fight night, Thor and Larratt, along with the rest of the card, will take part in a press conference on Thursday 16 September.

The card sees Thor return to the ring for the third time, following on from his exhibition bouts with professional boxers Steven Ward and Simon Vallily earlier this year.
It sees him continue to prepare for his long-awaited showdown with strongman rival Eddie Hall, with the two men set to meet next year in a clash dubbed as ‘The Heaviest Boxing Match in History.”
Standing in Thor’s way is Larratt, who since the late 1990s has proven himself as one of the most fearsome arm-wrestlers on the planet, and now makes the transition into boxing.
Some of the biggest names in boxing are also on the action-packed card, including heavyweight sensation Martin Bakole, who returns to action after almost a year to take on Haruna Osumanu.
Bakole is regarded as one of the best heavyweights in the world, and heads to Dubai having recently been sparring with former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk in the build up to the Ukranian’s world heavyweight title showdown with Anthony Joshua.
Elsewhere on the bill, CrossFit rivals Josh Bridges and Jacob Heppner will finally settle their differences, as they collide in a much-talked about grudge match.
Two of the most popular females in combat sports have respective bouts, as undefeated star Avril Mathie meets fellow unbeaten fighter Jesca Mfinanga, while world-record-holding powerlifter Stefi Cohen meets Marcela Nieto.
Rounding up the card, Anthony de Bruijin faces Giorgi Gachechiladze, Stephane Fondjo meets Badri Gogichashvili, while the likes of Fahad Al Bloushi and Khalid Naseer return too.
