The British fighter has scoffed at that training method and promised to “crush” the Iranian in the first round.

The bodybuilder Sajad Gharibi, known as the ‘Iranian Hulk’, has shared images of his peculiar training for the boxing fight against the British actor and mixed martial arts fighter Martyn Ford.

“Yes, this is personal, ” Gharibi wrote this Tuesday on his Instagram account along with a video in which he can be seen, among other things, bending a steel tool with his hands , crushing a watermelon and ‘piercing’ a concrete wall with fists.

However, he clarified that he did not want to participate in that duel, but that he was forced to accept it after Gharibi said things about him that “cannot be retracted.”
