The Iranian Hulk has deleted 'photoshopped' pictures after humiliating boxing defeat

A bodybuilder known as the 'Iranian Hulk' has pulled several photos from social media following his humiliating loss in the ring to Kazakh boxer Djumanov Almat Bakhytovich.

The social media influencer, whose name is actually Sajad Gharibi, only lasted a round against the 'Kazakh Titan'.

The Kazakh Titan blasted the 177 kilogram Hulk out of the ring in a matter of minutes.

Now it seems that the Iranian Hulk might not actually be as hench as his photos had originally indicated, with several snapshots vanishing from his social feed.

Gharibi, who boasts more than one million followers on Instagram, was called out online by his fans after the images vanished.

One user said: "The king of photoshop in the Middle East."

A second social media user piped up with: "The photos are far from the reality."

A third commented on an image of him dressed up for winter: "Big jacket and lots of layers #photoshop."

Gharibi has been left with a mere 14 images on his feed after the mass delete, showing him at a much more realistic size.

His most recent post was uploaded before the humiliating fight, showing his July 30 weigh-in before the ill-fated showdown.

The social media cleanup comes after the Hulk's fight with strongman Martyn Ford fell through.

It became apparent that Gharibi's pictures may have been telling some pork pies when the two beefcakes met in person.

"He was not what I expected," Ford said, as per 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."

It seems like the disastrous boxing match was doomed to fail from the start, with Gharibi's trainer Hamzeh Moradian admitting that the Iranian Hulk was 'too shy' to box in public classes.

Moradian also said that Gharibi wanted to pull the pin on the match only days before the showdown.

"When we talked, I told him that there is no way Sajad can fight," Moradian said via The Mirror.

“'Help him as much as you can' and I said that he can’t do it. I said that I don’t mean to intervene, but I think it’s better if it’s cancelled."

The trainer added: "When they tried to cancel it, they realised that they can’t do it, because they had to pay a penalty... he had to attend."
