Gabriel Aubry made a big mistake getting involved in a Thanksgiving day bust-up with Olivier Martinez: the French actor has serious boxing skills.

In fact, Halle Berry's tough guy fiancee prophetically warned about his talents in an interview just last month.

"I had a good left hook -- but keep that a secret!" revealed Martinez in the write-up.

The 46-year-old Unfaithful star, who spoke with Ocean Drive Magazine for its men's issue in October, was taught to fight by his former professional boxer father Robert Martinez while growing up in Paris. And he almost took up the brutal sport for a living before turning to acting.

"Boxing is the 'noble art' -- that's the name of the game. It's savage, but with rules, discipline, and a high sense of morality," Martinez said in the inteview. "At times, it seems like society has no morality, so I've always liked boxing because it is hard, it's violent, but it's honest."

And nobody knows that better than Aubry, 36, who was hospitalized following the nasty brawl with the broody actor and has the bruises to prove it, with the handsome catwalker spotted sporting a huge black and blue swelling under his left eye.

The fight reportedly erupted inside Berry's Hollywood home after Aubry arrived to drop off their 4-year-old daughter Nahla.

Berry, 45, was subsequently granted an emergency protection order against Aubry, banning him from coming within 100 yards of herself, Nahla or Martinez, while the French Canadian was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and was released after posting a $20,000 bail bond. Aubry is set to face a judge Dec. 13.

It's also been reported Berry will go to court early this week to seek a restraining order against her ex, TMZ is reporting, in the hopes of extending the emergency order.

The Thanksgiving fight is the latest chapter in the nasty feud between the pair which escalated out of control after a judge recently denied Berry's request to move Nahla to Martinez home country of France.

What do you think of Martinez's boxing background? Sound off below.

    Olvier has no 'business' getting involved concerning that little girl. She is Aubrey's daughter - NOT HIS! Halle sure didn't mind having a baby with Gabriel; now she thinks she's the only one who has any rights while she runs off with yet 'another' man. Pathetic!!

    Actually as boxers punch they turn the thumb down so that the shoulder protects the face. So By counter punching I mean Oliver had to strike first to get hit in the shoulder. If U deflect a punch it will not hit U in the shoulder.I wish I was the lawyer on this case. Such an easy easy win. When the smoke settles if Gabe can prove this was a set up he can sue for emotional distress and prove that Halle is an irresponsible parent maeaning he should get custody and the beech has to pay him child support.

    Oliver is supposed to be a boxer. Its almost impossible to hit a boxer in the shoulder when he deflects a punch. Stick your hands up and have a friend try to hit u in the shoulder. This can only actually happen with a counter punch. However the first punch Gabe threw supposedly struck Oliver in the shoulder. The shoulder injury is actually more consistent with having someone punch him there deliberately so that he could show a bruise. Think about it if U ask someone to hit U the shoulder is the logical place to do it. CCTV is a great thing Gabe needs to get his lawyers to file a subpoena to get a copy of the security tapes. If Halle deleted the tape this actually proves that Oliver did attack Gabe. If Halle says o well the camera was not recording that proves that the attack was premeditated. It seems consistent with the guy threatening him the previous day and Halle being distressed as well. One thing is for sure I will never watch another movie with this woman creature.
