Martyn Ford and Sajad Gharibi, known as Iranian Hulk, are slated to fight in the boxing ring next month. Ahead of the violent clash, Ford has warned Iranian Hulk and released training footage showing him practice footwork drills.
The anticipated boxing match was originally expected to take place on April 2, but the event was postponed until April 30 due to injuries. Taking place inside the O2 Arena in London, England, anticipation for the fight has continued to build. Gharibi has utilized his huge social media presence to help promote and draw attention to his fight with Ford.
Training sessions for the Iranian Hulk have been unconventional in preparation for the fight. Gharibi recently took full-blown punches to the body and shared the training footage online. In addition to punching concrete walls, the Iranian Hulk has also prepared his body for combat by fighting a group of men with grabs, throws, and trips.
After the pair of fighters met during the face-off last month, a size disparity was apparent. Ford, standing 6ft 8inches, labeled “The World’s Scariest Man”, towered over Gharibi. The face-off got heated and chaos ensued. Ford overpowered Gharibi and pushed him to the ground. In response, The Iranian Hulk attempted to take Ford to the ground but was unsuccessful.
