Iranian Hulk’s training for Scariest Man fight involves being hit by pole

The Iranian Hulk has been gearing up for his fight with the 'World's Scariest Man' Martyn Ford by taking some unusual measures.

Sajad Gharibi is preparing for the much-anticipated fight at the O2 Arena by such ways as hitting his head repeatedly with a weight plate and having his trainers whack him with a metal pole.

In another video, he showed how he had taken a flurry of blows to the abdomen, while in another, he fought off four men at once during a five-hour session.

The boxing newbie – who stands as 6ft 2inches – also showed off his strength by punching a bone in half after placing it on a stump.

The 30-year-old has amassed a substantial 673,000 Instagram followers for his antics.

Ford is also in training for the upcoming bout. He will have a mountain to climb as his foe weighs some 390lbs compared to the actor’s 320lbs

The 39-year-old has appeared in some major Hollywood films, such as Fast & Furious 9 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

His IMDB reads: "This was the stepping stone to building a successful career in the fitness industry with his work ethic in training carrying over to other pursuits that lead him to be an internet sensation, a fitness influencer, an online fitness coach, and a successful actor."

Ford and Gharibi have exchanged slurs for years and will finally face off on April 2 in London.

The fight, which will mark both competitors’ debuts, will take place over four two-minute rounds and be scored by judges, who will declare a winner if there’s no stoppage in the rounds.

Ford said of the fight: "I just want to smash his head in, It won’t give me any sense of achievement or pride to win, because I genuinely don’t think he will bring anything to the table that will allow me to be proud of myself.

"You can’t feel good about beating someone up that is useless. For me this is about settling some nonsense that has gone backwards and forwards for two or three years.

"I am not someone who takes trolling to heart, but there is a point where he has just gone to things that are disgusting and rude. If you want to step in to the ring, I’ll step up and I have never been afraid of confrontation.

“This is not a sporting event, you can’t have an event with someone who looks like that. That’s not a sportsman at all. This fight is purely for me to shut him and the other 200,000 fans of his. Once it is done it allows me to move forward."
