'World's Scariest Man' Martyn Ford Claims Rival 'Iranian Hulk' Is Photoshopped

'World's Scariest Man' Martyn Ford Claims Rival 'Iranian Hulk' Is Photoshopped

The so called 'World's Scariest Man,' Martyn Ford, is set go one-on-one in the ring with the man known as the 'Iranian Hulk' but Ford believes his rival is 'photoshopped' and not as big as the pictures suggest.


Heavily tattooed Ford is a 6ft 8 inches tall fitness trainer, who has also appeared in films such as Fast & Furious 9 and the Kingsman: the Golden Circle.


He is set to face rival Iranian Hulk, real name Sajad Gharibi, on April 30th after their rivalry sparked on social media over the past few years.

Gharibi is a weightlifter whose huge body has caused a stir online and is said to weigh a massive 370lbs, much more than Ford's 309lbs.

However the Brit isn't at all impressed with his rival and reckons that, after a meeting with the Iranian, his photos have actually been photoshopped and he's not as big as he claims.

"He was not what I expected," Ford told the Daily Star.


"I think he's just fooled the world with photoshop, if I'm honest. Seeing him in real life is not as impressive as seeing him in pictures.

"So disheartening I think is the word. He was tiny.


"He didn't look anything like he had made out.

"That was the first time I'd seen him in real-life. He was big, probably bigger than 18 stone, but he wasn't scary big. He just felt like a big kid that didn't really train if I'm being honest.

"He was supposed to be twice my size."


"Yes, this is personal," Hulk said in his video beating up the wall.

"Beautiful white teeth one side, you with all your sponsors [in] front of me with dear fans all around the world who support and motivate me."


The pair's fight comes off the back of the last big feud between two big men, when Eddie Hall took on rival Hafthor 'Thor' Bjornsson.

Thor was the winner and he now wants to beat up Ford, after the British actor claimed the man from Game of Thrones was 'soft.'

Who knows when all this celebrity boxing will end, maybe never.
