About the show

Award-winning actor Idris Elba has taken on numerous roles but none like this. In this series Elba undertakes the most physically and mentally demanding experience of his career – training to become a professional kickboxer and ultimately compete against a seasoned fighter in a no-holds-barred bout.

Shot on location in Britain, Cuba, Japan, South Africa and Thailand, he discovers what it really takes to be a professional fighter and pushes himself to the limit to overcome pain and fear, master specialised techniques and skills, and ensure both his body and mind are fighting fit.

Mentored by former world champions, trainers, and coaches, Idris spans the globe to incorporate unorthodox training methods and fitness regimens to increase his chances in the main event. 

Elba, who is no stranger to fight training, used to train kickboxing for fitness throughout his 20s, but has never fought professionally. This is no act. There is no script. This fight is brutally real.
