World’s Scariest Man Martyn Ford recently challenged former WWE star The Rock to a boxing match, so how do the two giants compare?

Ford is currently preparing to fight “Iranian Hulk” – real name Sajad Gharibi – in his boxing debut at the O2 Arena in April.

But while talking with muscle and health about the upcoming fight, Ford revealed why he would like to challenge The Rock in the ring.

“I would love to challenge The Rock to a fight,” he said. “We would make a fortune. It would be a phenomenal fight, because he is a great athlete. He is very mobile, strong and comes from a wrestling background.

The Rock has never fought before, but is an avid UFC fan and recently signed an exclusive shoe deal with the promotion.

And let’s take a look at the duo’s profiles in light of a hypothetical fight…

Martyn Ford

Ford, who is commonly referred to as “the scariest man alive”, has made a name for himself through his acting and bodybuilding career.

He is 6ft 8in and weighed 150kg before recently cutting calories to prepare for his upcoming fight with Gharibi.

Ford was not always a muscle man, only finding his feet in bodybuilding after his plans to become a professional cricketer in his early years didn’t pan out.

The 39-year-old has starred alongside Oscar winners in popular films such as Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Fast and Furious 9 and Final Score.

He signed for Polish MMA organization KSW in 2018 to set up a fight with Gharibi, but the Iranian strongman never followed in his bodybuilding rival’s footsteps.

Before beginning the gradual weight loss journey for his in-ring debut, Ford ate 8,000 calories but almost cut that in half for his preparations.

“I had between 7,000 and 8,000 calories a day,” he said. “I got them down to about 5,000 and then gradually reduced even more. I’m on about 4,500 now. I’ve lost about four stone in six months.”

“I haven’t measured my calories for six months. I just eat to my appetite and when I’m hungry. The only drastic change I’ve made is my diet balance.

“When I was doing a lot of weightlifting it was mostly fat and protein. Whereas now it’s a good 60-70% carb and it’s the complete turnaround.”

The Briton has vowed to knock out rival Gharibi when they meet at the O2 Arena and called the Iranian’s recent training videos ’embarrassing’.

Who would win in a fight between Ford and The Rock? Let us know your prediction in the comments section below.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson

Johnson was a talented football player in college and even won a national championship, but his hopes of qualifying for the NFL were dashed when he was not selected in the 1995 draft.

He came from a family of professional wrestlers, so it was no surprise when Johnson signed for WWE in 1996 and quickly became a huge hit for the organization.

The 6’5″ muscular man, who weighed 125kg at the peak of his career, spent eight years wrestling at the highest level before leaving WWE in 2004 and only returning for sporadic appearances.

But long before his WWE career took off, Johnson admitted things weren’t going to plan, and he considered moving to Japan to coach MMA.

“Pleasure for journalist[s] to imagine the scenarios if I had competed in the UFC,” Johnson wrote on Twitter.

“There was a time in 1997 when I considered going to Japan to train to start an MMA career when my wrestling career was failing miserably).

“I quickly realized that I hate being punched in the kiss. I would have had my face smashed and I like my jaw where it is.”

Johnson would never compete in MMA or any form of combat sport and turned to acting after his WWE career ended.

The 49-year-old is a common feature of the Fast and Furious franchise and has appeared in other hit movies such as The Mummy Returns and Pain & Gain.

Johnson presented the UFC’s first ‘BMF’ belt to Jorge Masvidal when he defeated fan-favorite fighter Nate Diaz in 2019.
