One of poker's top money earners, Antonio Esfandiari, has confirmed he will be boxing comedian and actor Kevin Hart for real money.  Both men have played in tournaments together.  Esfandiari was listed as the 34-1 underdog.

"Kevin Hart and I were playing the other day, we were hanging out ... and somehow boxing comes up," Antonio told TMZ.

"So, we made a bet. And, in March, around March, we are going to box in a ring."

Esfandiari was the first ever Big One for One Drop winner in 2012, walking away with the largest single payout in tournament poker history at $18,346,673.
