Madonna sat ringside to cheer Elba on, and posted this video to her Instagram.

British tabloid The Sun just added fuel to the fire by reporting that the pair were seen entering the M restaurant together around 3am following the boxing match. Reports said that the two were "very blatant" and were "all over each other." When rumors of the romance circled back to Elba himself, he dismissed them with his own "very blatant" statement on Twitter.

Ouch, a swift knife in the belly of the most iconic potential couple ever. We get it, Elba. You two aren't hooking up. UGH.
