The Iranian Hulk is saying his family disowned him following the humiliating staredown with Martyn Ford. The two men have gone viral as a result of their phenomenal physiques and will attempt to prove they can ‘walk the walk’ after ‘talking the talk’.

It all came about during a face-to-face special media event in Dubai, a prelude to their upcoming match in London. While promoting their upcoming fight Ford sent the Iranian Hulk flying with a ‘push‘ following an intense face-off.

In speaking with ‘Talk Sport’, Gharibi commented (with tears) on the Dubai exchange saying that he cannot call his family or return home to his family:

“I can’t talk to my father and my mother, when I spoke to her, she said: ‘The person in this video that I saw was not my son, my son is way stronger than this’. It hurts my heart when I can’t talk to my family. I have lost my pride and I am destroyed.”

The Iranian Hulk continued (h/t Talk Sport):

“How can I explain? They deceived me and I fell to the ground. My family said that you will go there and finish him. They expected the other way around. How can I sleep or get any rest? I personally feel very bad and I cannot sleep but I am now taking sleeping pills.”

Following the media event, Ford also weighed in saying:

“I am asking the question if he genuinely wants to fight me? Because I don’t want to step in the ring and be perceived as a bully and seen as intimidating someone who hasn’t put the same work in as I have. I expect if he is serious about fighting then he gets his ass into gear because I don’t want to disappoint people at the event.”
