A huge bodybuilder from Kazakhstani has decided that it’s now his time to wade into the world of celebrity giant boxing by challenging ‘The Iranian Hulk’, Sajad Gharibi. He did so in a pretty bizarre fashion too, as the below video will show you.
Almat Bakhytovich is an influencer from Kazakhstan who claims to have performed a variety of amazing feats of strength, as well as being a master of combat.
Whether those feats happened or that combat prowess is real is anybody’s guess, as not a great deal is actually known about the Kazakh titan.
One thing we do know is that he fancies a crack at Gharibi, who recently pulled out of a fight against fellow behemoth Martyn Ford – also known as the ‘World’s Scariest Man’.
It’s a great time to be a fan of huge lads scrapping with each other, that’s for damn sure.
In order to lay down the gauntlet for the Hulk, Almat decided that he’d chuck about a doll with the Iranian’s face on it.
Told you it was a bit strange.
He said: "Sajad, I am waiting for a contract.
“I am master at MMA and master at combat sambo. Let's fight Sajad, let's fight. Not you Hulk, you Sajad. Let's fight.”
Combat sambo – by the way – is a Soviet-era martial art that is quite a bit like wrestling.
Not exactly the perfect training for boxing, but he’s certainly big enough to pack a punch.
In previous videos challenging Gharibi, the Kazakh giant decided to blow up a hot water bottle with Hulk’s face on it until it burst.
He also claims that he can deadlift 300 kilograms and benchpress 150.
What’s more, he’s also attempted to set a national record by dragging a huge aircraft at the Nur Sultan airport in his homeland, though that wasn’t a success.
Honestly, he’s a very interesting dude, having also tried to open a can of Coke by squeezing it like Popeye and breaking out of a pair of handcuffs with sheer brute strength.
He claims to be a two-time strongman champion as well, although – as with absolutely everything we’ve said – that might not be exactly true.
The Kazakh has just 22,000 followers compared to Gharibi's 1,000,000, so it’s clear who would be bringing the bulk of the attention to the fight.
Gharibi recently threatened to sue Martyn Ford over his claims that he pulled out of the fight because of ‘mental health concerns’.
Obviously, the Iranian refutes that assertion and has demanded a new opponent.
Meanwhile, Ford has expressed an interest in fighting ‘The Mountain’ Thor Björnsson, who beat Eddie Hall in Dubai not so long ago.
As we say – great time to be a fan of massive lads bashing seven bells out of each other.
