Iranian Hulk denies PED use ahead of Martyn Ford boxing match

Iranian Hulk, born Sajad Gharibi, is toeing a thin line. The massive Iranian who may or may not be considerably smaller is frowning upon the accusations of PED usage.

30 year old Gharibi is expected to face 39 year old Martyn Ford on April 30th at the O2 Arena in London.

Gharibi, whose physique is suspected of being photoshopped recently denied that he used performance enhancers. He also shrugged off the fans who are accusing him of being a ‘fake’ .

“I am ready to do a blood test to prove that I have never used steroids,” Gharibi said on Iranian TV when asked if he uses performance enhancers.

Iranian Hulk was also asked about the accusations from fans calling him out for being fake. To them he had to say:

“Look, those who have been following me on Instagram and know me since the old days. They have watched my live videos and the ones I had posted and have seen me when I had just joined Instagram and had a lot more weight on. I had 120,000- 200,000 followers then. If you ask my followers about how I lost weight, they would say I had done it little by little. I was categorized in the extra heavy weight category in 2019.”

“After the pandemic was started in 2020 and after gyms were closed, I slowly lost weight; but the question is why do they compare photos from 2017 with the recent ones? Some rumour-making press would come and make such comparisons, while I posted some old videos and videos cannot be photoshopped.”

“There are also some of my live videos available on YouTube, they are undeniable! I wear XXXXXXXL sized clothes. When I used to weigh more, those clothes looked tight for me.”

It’s especially funny seeing Gharibi admit to ‘weight loss’ due to the fact that he was recently suspected of trying to cheat the scales in order to prove he’s in the neighbourhood of Ford’s weight. Ford is massive at 315 lbs whereas Gharibi is currently substantially smaller.

Gharibi was noticeably ‘normal’ sized during his contentious face off in Dubai.

Ford also remarked on this saying:

“He was not what I expected. 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.” Ford said.

Sajad Gharibi appeared smaller nowadays compared to himself in his old pictures. Leading boxing fans to think that it may be photoshopped.

“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.” Ford added.

Sajad Gharibi claimed to have weighed 390 pounds while Martyn Ford weighed 310 pounds. At a recent weigh in he was considerably smaller and even possibly tried to cheat on the scales.

BKFC founder and president David Feldman had a lot of faith in Gharibi. He was so sure that Gharibi would become a star in his promotion but BKFC backed out of the deal suspecting that Hulk’s images were not authentic.
