The former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs star is one of the most recognizable soccer players in the UK. First of all, his height is ludicrous. Standing at 6′ 7″ tall, he looks more like a basketball player than a Premier League striker. But he’s actually surprisingly mobile. Also, Crouch is famous for his bicycle kicks and robot dance celebrations. A larger-than-life personality, he also has a successful podcast.
Crouch is a former England international and played at two World Cups. Furthermore, he has a very decent scoring record. The FA Cup winner has scored more headed goals than any other player in Premier League history. To be honest, that probably shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Former WBA Boxing champion Valuev is an outrageously big man. The Russian fought at heavyweight and was one of the most difficult opponents to face in a boxing ring. Standing at seven feet and weighing up to 328 lbs, he was ludicrously imposing. 34 of his wins came by KO. This is a very powerful man.
Valuev was more than just a big man, however. He went 50-2 in his career, including a victory over former undisputed champion Evander Holyfield. However, that was a much older version of the former four-time champion. Valuev’s final loss came against Britain’s David Haye. He struggled with the mobility of the smaller man.
This Icelandic strongman has become a cultural icon because of his role in the hit TV series Game of Thrones. After starring as Gregor Clegane AKA ‘The Mountain,’ his fame reached new heights. This enormous man has carried that nickname into the real world. But he is first and foremost a professional strongman.
First, he played basketball, but injuries ended his career. Then, he turned to strongman competitions. In short, it was a brilliant decision. Furthermore, he is the first person to have won the Arnold Strongman Classic, Europe’s Strongest Man, and World’s Strongest Man in the same calendar year. At 441 lbs, this man is a behemoth.
