A shirtless and sweaty Idris Elba? Yes PLEASE! Go inside to get the deets on why the British hottie is getting extra shredded…
What did we do to deserve this? Idris Elba showing off his new trimmed physique has us turning up the air conditioner a notch.
And now we know why the British hottie is working his a** off to get in shape.
The two-time SAG Award winner is pushing his mind and body to the limit for a three-part docu-series where he will transform into a professional kickboxer. The new series is titled “Idris Elba: Fighter.”
Apparently, Idris is a huge fan of kickboxing, so he decided to take his love for the sport to a whole new level. By the end of his training, he will hop in the ring to battle it out against a seasoned fighter in a no-holds-barred fight, according to Shadow & Act.
The new limited series was shot in several countries, including the UK, Cuba, Japan, South Africa and Thailand, where the 43-year-old receives mentoring from former world champions, coaches and trainers to up his chances in the ring for the main event that's expected to go down in October.
“It has been a lifelong ambition of mine to fight professionally. 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,” Idris told the press.
The Beasts of No Nation star loves to re-invent himself. Outside of being an actor, he’s also a DJ and recently revealed he wants to get into directing.
Peep a few clips of Idris going hard in the gym to get into tip-top shape:
Idris’ Green Door Pictures production company is behind the project and it’s expected to make its premiere in early 2017 on the Discovery Channel. Are you here for it?
We for damn sure are....
