Allen Fisher is a legend in the Sport of Arm Wrestling. His history spans over three decades, with hundreds of wins and 26 World Titles. To this day, he dominates the sport and is known as one of the most honorable, strongest, yet intense opponents at the table.
A natural from the beginning, Allen started arm wrestling in 1979, winning his first World Championship three years later at 23 years old. He moved on quickly in his career, traveling to several countries and eventually winning first place in Sylvester Stallone's movie "Over the Top".
“I remember the euphoria I felt when I beat Tony Golden and won the competition. I was so happy! I jumped up and over the table!”
Allen has been exposed to a plethora of media coverage:
Wide World of Sports, ESPN, CNN, and many talk shows. He single-handedly started the only arm wrestling training camp in the world and has trained many who are now competing in tournaments using his tactics and strategies.
Allen has a popular nickname that caught on because of his signature look: a shaved head and a right arm bigger than his left, many began to call him “Popeye.”
Now, Allen has the honor of being a main character on AMC’s Game of Arms: a look inside the raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling. The series hails from the Emmy Award-winning producers of Deadliest Catch.
Allen “Popeye” Fisher looks forward to watching the series boost awareness for Arm Wrestling and, of course, his anticipation of dominating these matches.
