Idris Elba Is A Total Boss And This Video Of Him Kickboxing Proves It
If you needed further proof of the fact Idris Elba is a complete and utter boss, a video has emerged of him competing in his first professional kickboxing match. He wins, of course.
The video was posted to Instagram by pop legend Madonna and shows the 44-year-old actor making his debut at York Hall in London yesterday.
The clip shows him landing a number of punches to the head of his opponent...
The Luther star was taking part in the fight as part of Idris Elba: Fighter, a three-part documentary series he is filming. The show will see him travelling across the world, training and learning the history of Muay Thai and kickboxing.
"It has been a lifelong ambition of mine to fight professionally," Idris told the Daily Star.
"Entering the ring to further test myself as a human being is a challenge I have been looking to take on for quite some time."
The clip follows on from months of preparation he has undertaken for the show.
Idris Elba: Fighter will air on the Discovery Channel early next year.
In the meantime, we're hoping he doesn't get all Steven Seagal and incorporate it into everything he does.
