If you don’t know him from the TV show the “Wire” (he played Stringer Bell – please, God, tell me you watch the Wire), then maybe you recognize Idris Elba from his roles in the movies “Thor”, “Pacific Rim”, “Prometheus” and countless other flicks. Either way, Elba stepped into the kickboxing ring this past weekend…

…And apparently kicked some ass.

Remember when we used to have those laughable celebrity boxing shows where B-level celebs would embarrass themselves and the sport? Yeah, with Elba, that is definitely not the case.

Idris Elba Smashes it at York Hall!
