Iranian Hulk called out by Kazakh Titan who attacks punchbag with his face on in bizarre video

KAZAKH behemoth Titan has called out the Iranian Hulk by punching and throwing a punchbag with his face on.

The Iranian Hulk – real name Sajad Gharibi – was due to face British bodybuilder Martyn Ford last month.




But the bout ended up being cancelled after Ford stated that he had "mental health concerns".

And now Titan – real name Almat Bakhytovich – has tried to goad Hulk into a clash he has wanted for years.

In the clip, he could be seen punching and throwing a punchbag with Hulk's face stuck on.

And he could be heard saying: "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."

Titan, who claims he can bench press 150kg and deadlift 300kg, has been trying to entice Gharibi into a fight for several years.

One way he previously tried to wind him up was by blowing up a hot water bottle with his face on.

Meanwhile, Gharibi, who stands at 6ft 2in and a remarkable 380lbs, has reportedly represented Iran in powerlifting competitions and has sculpted his muscle mass over a number of years.

It's even claimed that he can lift 50 POUNDS more than his own extreme bodyweight.

"[I also have] many great friends from all around the world who have supported me every step of the way in these difficult times.
