Iranian Hulk was defeated in the first round in his match with Kazakh Titan.
Iranian Hulk finally got the chance to step in the ring for his debut as a boxer. It did not last long as he was defeated in the first round by Kazakh Titan. After his poor performance, Sajad Gharibi issues an apology and said he was ashamed.
The fight took place on Sunday in Dubai during the Wicked N’Bad’s white-collar boxing event. It was clear from the opening bell that Iranian Hulk was not prepared and lacked any skills that could allow him to win this fight. Gharibi was unbalanced and eventually fell to the mat and the referee called the fight in the first round.
Iranian Hulk saw his scheduled bout with Martyn Ford get cancelled back in March because of concerns with his mental health. He revealed that he was disowned by his family when the video surfaced of his face-off with Ford. Now, Iranian Hulk has issued another public statement about his career in the ring.
Iranian Hulk Apologizes For Embarrassing Loss
In a recent interview after the fight, Iranian Hulk decided to make a quick statement about his performance and to his country.
“I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY BUT I AM ASHAMED AND I APOLOGIZE TO THE IRANIAN PEOPLE,” GHARIBI SAID.
Iranian Hulk did not have much to say following the fight but his coach went into a bit more detail. According to Mirror, his coach believes that it was a bad situation.
“I JUST WANTED TO FIVE A BRIEF EXPLANATION ABOUT THE FIGHT. THE FIGHT WAS SET BEFORE SAJAD CAME TO ME AND HE SIGNED THE CONTRACT. THERE WAS NO WAY TO CANCEL IT UNLESS HE PAID A BIG FINE FOR THE CANCELLATION.
“WE HAD A BAD SITUATION. SAJAD CAME TO TEHRAN FOR HIS TRAINING [BUT] WE HAD A FINANCIAL PROBLEM, THE SPONSOR DIDN’T KEEP THEIR WORD. IN SHORT, SAJAD TRAINED WITH ME FOR ONLY TWO WEEKS AND I TOLD HIM HE WAS NOT READY TO FIGHT. BUT I HAD TO BE WITH HIM BECAUSE HE HAD TO FIGHT AND SOMEBODY HAD TO COACH HIM.”
Iranian Hulk’s coach apologized for the performance as well. He continued to explain that he believed the boxers were at the same level but there was still a short time for preparation.
“HIS OPPONENT WAS THE SAME LEVEL AS SAJAD BUT SAJAD COULDN’T DO MUCH, I AM SO SORRY. I TRIED TO HELP HIM BUT WE HAD A REALLY SHORT TIME FOR IT. I HOPE WE CAN FIX IT IN THE FUTURE.”
