Tug of war is one of the ultimate tests of strength and there have been many instances where a human/s takes on an animal to determine the stronger species. More often than not the animal wins because, well, large animals are usually stronger than humans regardless of the human’s size.
Recently though, IFBB Pro bodybuilder Blessing Awodibu wanted to try his luck against a liger which is the offspring of a male lion and a female tiger. Ligers are considered the largest cats in the world, with males ranging from 9.8 to 11.8 ft in length and weighing 800-1,000 pounds on average. To put into perspective how large this is, an adult male tiger weighs a few hundred pounds less than this, on average.
But if anyone was going to take on this liger, it would, of course, have to be Blessing Awodibu whose larger than life personality matches his huge muscles. Plus, he’s known for doing crazy things and is undoubtedly one of, if not the most entertaining bodybuilders out there.
Watch him engage in a tug of war battle with the liger on the other side of the enclosure…
This is what he wrote in the post…
“#theboogieman VS 800 pounds #liger Tug of war
You could also hear him say in the clip, “not today boy, not today. They don’t call me the Boogieman for no reason, they don’t call me the Boogieman for no reason.”
The liger clearly had the advantage when it used its strength, although, the Boogieman didn’t do too bad himself when his foe let up a little. Although, the Boogieman would have you believe that he got the better of the Beast on the other side of the glass wall.
All in all, it was a fun moment for everyone involved but now Blessing Awodibu has to focus on making gains and preparing to bring a lights-out package in his Pro debut next year.
