Things got a bit physical during the first staredown between Sajad Gharibi and Martyn Ford.
Gharibi — more famously known as the “Iranian Hulk” — is set to face fellow bodybuilder in Ford in a boxing match set to take place April 2 at the O2 Arena in London, England.
The pair exchanged barbs on social media leading up to their fight and things have clearly turned heated between them.
During their first staredown, Gharibi got too close to Ford which resulted in the latter shoving him to the ground. When they faced off soon after again, Gharibi attempted to take him down only to fail.

While both are bodybuilders, Gharibi is the smaller and more stocky fighter which has seen him gain massive attention on social media as well as earn him his “Iranian Hulk” nickname.
However, as we know in combat sports, size isn’t everything, and going by how this staredown went, Gharibi could be in a lot of trouble against Ford.
The boxing contest will be a four-round exhibition match of two minutes each. It will headline the Boxstar Celebrity Boxing event which features a number of other boxing matches on the card.
