Martyn Ford, the giant bodybuilder who has been nicknamed the "World's Scariest Man" thanks to his imposing tattooed frame, looks very different these days. In a before-and-after photo posted to Instagram, a noticably leaner Ford shared an update on his body transformation as he shifts focus from bodybuilding to boxing, and revealed that he has lost almost 60 pounds in the last six months, dropping from 360 pounds to 302.
"Lifting big ass weights VS Boxing," he wrote. "October I started this journey, and like anything I've done in life that I've really wanted to do, I've given absolutely EVERYTHING and more. This is by far the best and healthiest I've felt in years, getting back to feeling 21 again is insane.... if you have a serious goal to achieve get in touch today."
This isn't the first change of direction for the British bodybuilder. He has an extensive background in sport, having competed at a national level in athletics, shotput, javelin, and cricket during his teenage years. It was only after his budding career as a professional athlete came to an abrupt halt following an injury that he eventually set his sights on bodybuilding.
Ford is following something of a trend when it comes to enormous fellas pivoting to boxing: strongmen Thor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall, each of whom has held the title of World's Strongest Man, have both spent the last two years losing 100 pounds or so and refocusing their entire training regimens around speed and mobility as they pursue new careers as pro fighters (their much-hyped grudge match took place recently, ending in a victory for Bjornsson).
