The super heavyweights couldn’t wait until July 31st to put their hands on each other, as the two came to blows during their first face-off. The enormous strongmen are set for an exhibition boxing match at the end of the month, and they were in Dubai to promote the upcoming bout.
Things got heated when Sajjad Gharibi, also known as the Iranian Hulk, put his hands on his opponent’s chest. Kazakh Titan wasn’t too keen on Gharibi’s actions and shoved the big man in the face. From there chaos ensued, as security struggled to contain the powerful iron pumpers.
Eventually, things appeared to be under control, but the Iranian Hulk wasn’t done quite yet. When promoters allowed a second face-off, Gharibi took a swing at Djumanov Almat Bakhytovich (Kazakh Titan).
After the second attempt at getting the big men to stand face to face, it was clear the two weren’t going to play nice. Security and promoters escorted Bakhytovich out of the ring first, while the Iranian Hulk looked on as if to stalk his prey.
The super heavyweight bout is scheduled for only 4 rounds, with each round being two minutes long. With over 500lbs of muscle going head to head inside the squared circle, most are anticipating the scrap won’t go the full eight minutes. The card features a variety of social media influencers and is available on PPV via promoter Wicked N’ Bad.
Iranian Hulk vs. Kazakh Titan: Tale of the Tape
Sajad Ghrabi (Iranian Hulk) has amassed over a million followers on Instagram throughout recent years. Gharibi became famous for his massive physique, along with his entertaining training videos. The Iranian Hulk stands 6’2″ tall and is rumored to tip the scales at over 380 pounds. Gharibi is said to have dropped 30lbs in the lead-up to his first dance inside the ring, but will still have an enormous size advantage over the Kazakh Titan.
Djumanov Almat Bakhytovich (Kazakh Titan) is a bodybuilder and social media influencer. He hails from the busy city of Almaty, in Kazakhstan. While Bakhytovich doesn’t have the size, or social media following as his opponent, he is as strong as it gets.
The Kazakh Titan is listed at just 5’7″, but weighs in at over 250lbs of muscle. Bakhytovich will have a considerable size disadvantage, but he possesses inhuman strength. He’s said to have benched 330 pounds and deadlifted over three times his body weight. The Kazakh Titan claims to be a “master” of MMA and combat sambo, but his true skills have yet to be tested.
