Beefy Beefcake : Murat Bosporus (Part 1)

For all you aficionados of wrestlers with thicker, beefier builds, here's "The Turkish Wrestling Machine" Murat Bosporus. Born Ozgur Bakar in Wolfrathausen, Germany, Murat is only 5 ft. 6 in. tall but weighs a solid 240 pounds.  Here's what his Wikipedia entry says about him: "His debut match took place in March 2002 with the local European Wrestling Promotion. Since then he has become one of the top German wrestlers working for over 30 promotion worldwide in countries such as France, Italy, Spain, England, among others. In 2006 he became the first German to work for the Japanese Pro Wrestling NOAH, where he made numerous acclaimed matches. In 2008 he was a regular in the major African promotion World Wrestling Professionals based in South Africa working alongside Joe E. Legend who later that year invited him to tour Canada with BSE Pro. As of 2011 he works regularly for German Stampede Wrestling and Turkish Power Wrestling." Watch Murat in a 2008 match against a young Justin Gabriel (aka PJ Black) here.
