    Continuing his relationship with Discovery Networks UK, Idris Elba will move from pushing his body, mind and engineering know-how to the limit for the four-part series “Idris Elba No Limits” (which aired earlier this year), to pushing mostly his body and mind in a new limited series titled “Idris Elba: Fighter” – three-part docu that will see Elba undertake the physically and mentally demanding task of training to become a professional kickboxer, and will eventually take on a seasoned fighter in a no-holds-barred bout.

    Elba crossed multiple continents for the series, filming in the UK, Cuba, Japan, South Africa and Thailand. He is also producing via his company Green Door Pictures, with an early 2017 air date eyed in both the UK and the USA, on the Discovery channel.

    “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,” Elba says in a press statement.

    The intimate series will follow Elba as he receives mentoring from former world champions, trainers and coaches, and travels the world to incorporate unorthodox training methods and regimens to increase his chances for the main event.

    His previous adventure, which aired last month, followed the actor as he immersed himself in rally driving, street racing, aerobatics and power boating to master not only the discipline of racing, but also the engineering, science and history behind it. He joined professional teams, took on seemingly impossible challenges, received coaching by some of the world’s leading drivers and pilots and meet fellow speed freaks to share their secrets.

    “I’m taking on the toughest… challenges of my life for this new Discovery TV series. The extreme challenges take me right out of my comfort zone as I compete against the best…,” Elba said.

    The ultimate fight that he’s training for, will take place in October of this year.

    “Idris Elba: Fighter” is a Discovery Networks UK commission. It is produced by Shine North and Idris Elba’s production company Green Door Pictures.
