Welcome to the Legion!
Idris Elba: Fighter- Idris looked well on his way to success, looking toned and sweaty as he stepped in the boxing ring for training in Havana's Rafael Trejo boxing gym in Cuba.

Before Idris Elba became one of the most sought after actor with a voice so gruff you’d shiver in your pants, he was kind of a fitness junkie. Elba took up kickboxing as a hobby just to stay in shape, but now he wants to take that hobby to the next level and become a professional kickboxer. And guess what. We’ll get to take that journey with him.

The British actor is chronicling his latest pursuit in a documentary miniseries, Idris Elba: Fighter. It will document Elba’s initial training to his inevitable first step into the ring with a veteran fighter in a no-holds-barred match. The miniseries will air on Discovery Channel in early 2017, probably around the same time The Dark Tower blows into theaters.

I just hope Elba fairs much better than Jon Favreau did on Friends
