The WBC heavyweight champion said in an Instagram video: “Just finished a brutal session and I can only think about destroying one person.
“Thor!! I’m coming for you, Thor. You’re getting it, sucker. There’s only room for one big dog and that’s me!”
Bjornsson – who played The Mountain in Game of Thrones – was quick to respond to Fury’s shock call out.
He said: “I f****** love this, Tyson. Me and you in the ring like f****** Vikings.
“This is going to be a bloodbath, but I f***ing can’t wait. Let’s do this!”
Fury sent another chilling message Bjornsson’s way as he went for a run on Saturday morning.
As he got the miles in, Fury said: “Thor, I’m gonna come to Iceland and set about you, you big dosser.”
Fury jokingly teased a showdown with Bjorsson late last month, writing: “I wonder if Thor Bjornsson could take a crashing right hand to that big jaw.
“Who would have Thor’s hammer? Would this mountain be too big to climb?”
Fan favourite Fury announced his retirement from professional boxing moments after his brutal sixth-round knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley in April.
But he’s yet to vacate the prestigious WBC strap, which he’s in no rush to relinquish.
He told talkSPORT: “No, I’m not gonna give it up, because I’ve got 12 months [before being stripped of the belt]
“I’ll just keep it as long as possible. I’ll keep that in my pocket as long as I want.
