'Scariest man on the Planet' Martyn Ford secures grudge match with 'Iranian Hulk', Sajad Gharibi


Martyn Ford and Sajjd Gharibi will fight one another at the O2 Arena in London on April 4 next year.

The "Scariest Man on the Planet" and the "Iranian Hulk" were initially scheduled to take on one another in 2018.

However, the fight did not take place but now, we are only a few months away from seeing them in the ring.

Ford said on Instagram that the fight is very personal for him due to the things said by the Iranian's entourage.

"The London 02 is booked. I would absolutely love to put on an event you guys will never forget", said the 39-year-old.

"This to me is very personal...things have been said that can't be taken back, by numerous people in his circle.

"I will release exactly what at the press conference and you will see just why this is so personal to me.

"I can't promise you the most technical fight in the world but I will promise you that I will bring my absolute everything and turn this into an event you will never forget.

"I would absolutely love to pack this arena out and have 20k screaming friends and family show this guy exactly what it means to be strong enough to stand up for what you believe in."

Ford and Gharibi are both bodybuilders with intimidating physiques with the former standing tall at 6'8 and weighing 300+ lbs while the latter weighs 390 lbs.

So far, no name has been assigned to the fight but "Scariest boxing match in history" seems fairly fitting.

The bout may not be the most popular one around but it will have several viewers as many will be keen on seeing how two gigantic bodybuilders fare in the ring.
