The pair, both 6ft 9in, posed topless as Bjornsson – known as ‘Thor’ – visited Fury at one of his evening with tour nights.
He posted on Instagram: “Peak performance male athletic body shape vs me… all jokes aside what an honour meeting @gypsyking101 tonight and going to one of his shows!
“Looking forward to learning more from the champ himself in the near future!”
Fury, 33, scaled 19st 11lb for his last fight, an 11th-round knockout win over rival Deontay Wilder, 36.
Amazingly, during Bjornsson’s strongman days he weighed as heavy as 32 STONE.
But, since transitioning to boxing the super-heavyweight has dramatically lost nine stone, trimming down to 23 stone.

Bjornsson, 33, is preparing to fight strongman rival Eddie Hall, 33, who he called out in May 2020 after he broke the Brit’s 501kg deadlift record.
Ever since, the pair have dropped the weights and picked up gloves to prepare for a spectacle billed as ‘the heaviest boxing match in history’.
Bjornsson has had three tune-up exhibition bouts in preparation for the grudge match with Hall in March.
They were against Irish cruiserweight Steven Ward, 31, English heavyweight Simon Vallily, 36, and most recently Canadian Larratt, 46.
And Bjornsson is sure to have picked up some tips from unbeaten Fury, who is one of his favourite fighters.
