LIONEL Messi’s wife has gone public with her new passion in life – boxing.
Stunning brunette Antonela Roccuzzo shows she knows how to land a punch as well as use her lightning-quick reactions to dodge one.
And the 32-year-old left fans in no doubt she hits just as hard with her left as she does with her right as she displayed her impressive collection of shots including upper cuts with a trainer.
Keep-fit fanatic Antonela might have looked a seasoned veteran with her performance.
But the modest mum-of-three insisted she was only a beginner.
She said in a message to her 13.2million fans on Instagram alongside footage of her sparring: “I began a month ago and I’m still learning. I love it.”
Antonela’s new keep-fit regime, thought to have taken place at the family home on an exclusive estate in Casteldefells near Barcelona, is part of a wider aerobic workout.
She put it online to hit song ‘I Like It’ by Cardi B featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
Barcelona-based Gravity X Fitness and Boxing, which made Antonela sweat, says on its website it aims to provide people with a lifestyle change by “building confidence, mental strength and an overall self-awarding feeling of accomplishment” through body conditioning.
The firm’s motto is “What seems impossible today will soon become your warm-up.”

Toned Antonela treated fans to an astonishing gym display last year with squats, chest presses and punishing sit-ups with weights.
She posted her impressive routine workout on Instagram Live last May hours after her full-on snog with her footballer husband for a new song and music video went viral.
The star couple showed their passion for each other in Puerto Rican singer Residente’s video showing 113 kisses from around the world during the coronavirus lockdown.
At the start of the month Barcelona striker Messi revealed Antonela begged him to see a sports psychologist after he handed in a transfer request last summer but he refused.
He said: “Antonela has insisted a lot of times that I should go, but I’m someone who keeps everything to myself.”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez has made headlines over the past year with her workouts but is not thought to have practiced boxing to keep in shape.
The Spaniard’s gym sessions have wowed fans just as much as her figure-hugging leggings.
