Iranian Hulk to take on ‘Scariest Man on the Planet’ in boxing fight

Forget Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua – the fight between nearly seven-foot-tall bodybuilder Martyn Ford and the 390lb Iranian Hulk is the BIG boxing match.

Sajad Gharibi AKA the ‘Iranian Hulk’ is a beast of a man. Also nicknamed the Persian Hercules, he’s 6ft 2 inches tall and weighs nearly 180kg. That’s the same weight as a high-end sports bike. Or a blue whale’s heart. And as you can see from below, he is literally enormous.

He was also willing to fight for his country against ISIS in 2016. He posted a video where he said “I’m a defender of my country, first. I want to thank General Soleimani and all the soldiers who lost their lives in Syria. They are my heroes.”

When he does step into the ring he’ll find his opponent is equally stacked.

Bodybuilder and actor Martyn Ford is nearly seven-foot-tall and, unlike the Iranian Hulk, he has martial arts experience.

And if you’re thinking ‘I recognise him,’ you’ll have seen him in the Fast & Furious 9 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

The two huge heavyweights will battle it out in London next April as part of the Boxstar Celebrity Boxing event.

And it’s fair to say the ground will move when they step into the ring.
