High stakes poker pro and three time WSOP bracelet winner, Antonio Esfandiari has won yet another prop bet. He took comedian Kevin Hart down in just three rounds, as part of a boxing prop bet.
The deal was struck around nine months ago with expectations that it would be an easy win for Hart—having had previous boxing experience. The amount wagered between the pair has yet to be disclosed, but CardPlayer revealed that Esfandiari will get 35:1 on his money.
Hart said on Esfandiari’s win “I wanna take the time to congratulate my guy Antonio Esfandiari on a amazing sparring match today. We went 3 3min rounds and both gave it our all. In the end you were the winner by decision. You worked hard and deserve the W champ. Good shit….I want a rematch as soon as I catch my fucking breathe again 😂😂😂😂....To all boxers WE ARE NOT FIGHTERS AND WE DON’T WANT TO BE….this was a challenge between 2 friends that had a great time and put on a hell of a show!!!! We have so much respect for this sport…You guys are amazing!!!!!! #HartvsEsfandiari #Part1 …..P.S I will post some highlight videos of both of us when it’s all edited. Shit was so dope….I’m glad we did it man!!!! Love ya.”
For those that bet agaisnt Esfandiari, he does have a habit of winning physical prop bets.
Back in 2009 Esfandiari won $1,000 off Nick Cassavetes in a pushup prop bet on High Stakes Poker.
2016 saw him get disqualified from the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) thanks to his dedication to a lunge prop bet between him and Bill Perkins.
