It is clear that both behemoths want to get the better of the other in the ring. Martyn Ford recently trained with champion kickboxer Rico Verhoeven in order to fine tune his skills heading into the event. He enters the match with experience in MMA and Brazialian jiu-jitsu.

While the Iranian Hulk does not have experience in the ring, he will have a distinct weight advantage. The bodybuilder is expected to come into the match weighing around 390 pounds. Ford weighs around 300 pounds but has seven inches of height on Gharibi at 6-foot-9. This makes it an extremely interesting matchup on paper.

It can all be thrown out in the ring when two fighters want to come out on top. Some believe that the Iranian Hulk might be able to gain an advantage because of his weight as the fight gets deeper and deeper.

Regardless of the outcome, what we do know is that there will be a full night of boxing in the famous O2 Arena in London come April 2. There is expected to be around 20,000 fans in attendance to watch what could be a special night of fighting.
