- Iranian Hulk revealed why he can no longer talk to his family after recent bust-up with Martyn Ford
- Ford is questioning Hulk’s dedication to the upcoming fight
Sajad Gharibi, most commonly known as “The Iranian Hulk,” is slated for a heavyweight bout sanctioned by the Professional Boxing Association on Sat., April 30, 2022 inside O2 Arena in London against Martyn Ford. Leading up to the fight, the pair had an intense face-off in Dubai where Gharibi ended up hitting the ground after being shoved hard by Ford.
Disowned by his family
Some believe that Ford just happened to be the first to move and managed to get the better of Gharibi. However, according to “The Iranian Hulk,” his family reckoned that he’s weak. Even worse, his parents were deeply devastated by the humiliation and told him the person whom Ford pushed to the ground was not their son.
“I cannot call my family,” an emotional Gharibi said in a recent TV interview. “When I returned I didn’t go to my family. I can’t talk to my father and my mother, when I spoke to her, she said: ‘The person in this video that I saw was not my son, my son is way stronger than this’. It hurts my heart when I can’t talk to my family. I have lost my pride and I am destroyed.”
“How can I explain? They deceived me and I fell to the ground,” he continued. “My family said that you will go there and finish him. They expected the other way around. How can I sleep or get any rest? I personally feel very bad and I cannot sleep but I am now taking sleeping pills.”
Ford doubts Hulk’s will
Both colossal heavyweights look undeniably massive and intimidating. However, Ford said in a recent press conference that he’s beginning to doubt if Gharibi is really all in for the fight.
“I am asking the question if he genuinely wants to fight me?,” Ford stressed. “Because I don’t want to step in the ring and be perceived as a bully and seen as intimidating someone who hasn’t put the same work in as I have.”
“If he really wants to do this fight, tell everyone he wants to do this fight and don’t put it on me,” he added. “I expect if he is serious about fighting then he gets his a*** into gear because I don’t want to disappoint people at the event.”
Gharibi has gained popularity for his freakishly massive physique that has made him “The Iranian Hulk.” Ford, meanwhile, is a 6’8”, 320-pound seasoned bodybuilder who likes to refer to himself as “The World’s Scariest Man.” However, only one man will be hailed winner when these two giants clash inside the ring.
