If you’re one of the 73.5 million people that following comedian/actor/producer Kevin Hart on instagram then you already know that he takes his fitness seriously. The 39-year old entertainment mogul often shares video of his workout routine, which includes sparring sessions, such as his recent three-round boxing match against professional poker player, Antonio Esfandiari.
A few day ago, Hart posted some photos of their session in which he revealed that Esfandiari was the winner by decision: “In the end you were the winner by decision. You worked hard and deserve the W champ.”
Today, Hart shared video footage of their bout, along with a brief breakdown of what it was like to get in the ring with “The Magician.”
“The most challenging & most fun thing to do in life is to just step out of your lane and try different shit….that’s what this was for me &@magicantonio ….We said fuck it and actually got into the ring and went at it. It was by far the most challenging thing ever. Major thank you to @dopepickwanfor the video ….I gotta give@magicantonio credit because he didn’t let me fight the fight that I wanted to…He wouldn’t let me get inside and fight a small mans fight…He grabbed me and tied me up every chance he got and it killed my legs…I was dead in the 3rd. Great strategy u big nose jackass ???? Rematch coming in 2022 ????#hartvsesfandiari“
Check out the footage below, followed by some still shots of the sparring session.
