Adebayo Akinfenwa Is THE BEAST…A Footballer Of Monstrous Proportions


Cue the Akinfenwa craze once again! It seems the world stops and stare’s in awe every time this chap appears on TV or makes the press. Akinfenwa aka ‘The Beast’ is the largest professional footballer in the UK, at 16 stone (102kg) and just 5’11’’, the guy is as wide as he is tall! He really is a beast by name and a beast by nature, but it’s not just his stature that is impressive, it’s the nature of the sport he plays, the position he occupies on the field (striker) and the deceptive turn of pace and poise he exudes when on the ball. Oh and get this to all our body building friends… the man bench presses an incredible 180kg for reps (that’s 28 stone)! This translates into computer console games too where his strength rating is 97/ 100, making him the strongest player in the world according to the game.
