Sajad Gharibi, otherwise known as The Iranian Hulk, made his long-awaited boxing debut on Saturday night and it did not go to plan.

Earlier this year, he emerged out of nowhere when it was announced that he was going to be fighting professional bodybuilder, Martyn Ford.

The fight, however, fell through after the pair clashed in a face-off and Ford easily pushed Gharibi to the ground and it became clear that it may not be a fair fight.

After this incident, footage emerged of the Iranian Hulk breaking down while appearing on a TV show and he revealed the he had been disowned by his parents and that he was suicidal.

Subsequently, Ford called the event organisers and told them that he would no longer be going ahead with the fight, as he didn’t want to be responsible for Gharibi being bullied and taking his own life.

So instead, the Iranian Hulk moved on to a different opponent in the form of the Kazakh Titan, whose real name is Djumanov Almat Bakhytovich.

The pair met in the ring over the weekend and the Kazakh Titan was utterly dominant, landing shots to the body and head at will, to the point that the Iranian Hulk repeatedly turned away from his opponent and the contest was stopped.

“I have nothing to say but I am ashamed and I apologise to the Iranian people.” Gharibi said after the fight.

The Iranian Hulk’s coach gave a more detailed explanation as to why Gharibi put in such a poor performance.

He said: “Thank you for your good and bad messages, I just wanted to give a brief explanation about the fight.

“The fight was set before Sajad came to me and he signed the contract. There was no way to cancel it unless he paid a big fine for the cancellation.

“We had a bad situation. Sajad came to Tehran for his training [but] we had a financial problem, the sponsor didn’t keep their word.

“In short, Sajad trained with me for only two weeks and I told him he was not ready to fight. But I had to be with him because he had to fight and somebody had to coach him.”
