Hany Rambod thinks Andrew Jacked, James Hollingshead, and Martin Fitzwater will battle for the top spot at the Arnold Classic UK.
With the Arnold Classic UK fast approaching, Hany Rambod believes Andrew Jacked, James Hollingshead, and Martin Fitzwater will be battling for the top spot at the show. All three bodybuilders have their own distinct body types that they will showcase on stage.
There’s no denying that Andrew Jacked is one of the best up and coming bodybuilders in the world today. His impressive win at the Texas Pro showed that the IFBB Pro League newcomer has what it takes to challenge the top of the division. But as he heads into the 2022 Arnold Classic UK, the talented upstart will face some tough competition.
Hany Rambod, one of the top bodybuilding coaches in the world today, recently confirmed that Andrew Jacked would compete at the show. There was a bit of confusion as to whether Andrew would compete or not. But it appears that Rambod has put those questions to bed.
“[THE 2022 ARNOLD CLASSIC UK] THE NEXT BIG SHOW SINCE THE TEXAS PRO AND ONE THING IT HAS IN COMMON: ANDREW JACKED. SO, ANDREW JACKED IS IN. WE GOT CONFIRMATION — SOMEONE SAW THAT GEORGE MENTIONED THAT HE IS IN BECAUSE THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF TALK ABOUT HIM BEING IN, HIM BEING OUT.
“I TALKED TO SEVERAL PEOPLE — GEORGE DID COMMENT THAT HE IS IN. SO AS OF RIGHT NOW, HE’S IN. THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK THAT HE’S OUT AND THINK HE’S NOT GOING TO BE A PART OF THE EQUATION, HE’S BACK IN.”
A UK Threat
Singing the praises of Andrew Jacked in a recent podcast, Hany Rambod explained that the IFBB Pro League newcomer has a ton of momentum heading into the Arnold Classic UK. In the same podcast Rambod explained that homegrown UK talent James Hollingshead could be a legit front runner at the show.
“THE MOMENTUM HE HAS… I THINK THE PERSON THAT IS GOING TO TRY TO GIVE HIM THE MOST AMOUNT OF TROUBLE IS HOLLINGSHEAD. YOU HAVE JAMES HOLLINGSHEAD, WHO IS REGROUPING, PUTTING HIS PHYSIQUE BACK TOGETHER. HE LOOKS MASSIVE. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF PHYSIQUES GOING AFTER THIS TITLE.
“I THINK THAT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE APPLES AND ORANGES TO A DEGREE BUT IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT TO SEE HIM NEXT TO SOME OTHER TYPES OF ATHLETES.”
Here Comes Another Challenger
James Hollingshead isn’t the only bodybuilder that Hany Rambod says will test Andrew Jacked. Rambod also spoke on Texas Pro runner up Martin Fitzwater who also shows great potential to play spoiler.
“ANOTHER ATHLETE THAT’S GOING TO TRY TO TAKE ANOTHER RUN AT HIM IS THE GUY WHO PLACED SECOND — MARTIN. MARTIN FITZWATER IS GOING TO BE IN THIS SHOW AS WELL. HE TOOK SECOND IN TEXAS AND I KNOW THAT HE’S GOING TO WORK ON HIS TAN, WORK ON HIS CONDITIONING TO TRY TO BRING IT IN EVEN TIGHTER.”
With so many different body types expected at the Arnold Classic UK, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will pick up a win. Will it be Andrew Jacked, James Hollingshead, or Martin Fitzwater?
