Charlize Theron Trades Punches, Kisses … With Boxing Champ

Charlize Theron surprised a boxing champ on his birthday — threw punches at him and then kissed his face … and we’ve got footage of the whole thing!
The man on the receiving end is Chris van Heerden — a former IBO Welterweight champ who’s a BIG fan of the actress (they’re both from South Africa).
Peter Berg — the mega-producer who owns the gym — wanted to surprise Chris on his birthday so he got Charlize to swing by for a sparring session … and Chris LOVED IT, Peter Kahn, van Heerden’s manager tells us.
Charlize not only got in the ring and threw hands — she jumped on the fighter, wrapped her legs around the guy … and capped it off with a big, fat kiss on his face.
Oh, and Mark Wahlberg also stopped by. Best birthday ever?!
By the way, Theron’s not a regular at the gym … but she wasn’t bad on the mitts for an amateur.
Maybe there’s a boxing role in her future?
