He trained with Bruce Lee, and he used to beat Van Damme senseless. Oh yes, and according to some old news, Bolo used to say the late Brandon Lee was lazy when Bolo was training with him on the set of “Legacy of Rage”.
In 2007 Yeung appeared in a mixed martial arts movie “Blizhny Boy” (read the review of the film here), which was 10 years after he made “Tiger Claws 2”.
Since then, Yeung has not made another film, but I doubt anyone blames him – being in his 70’s Yeung has done enough to be remembered.
In 2010 there were some rumors floating online that Yeung would be appearing in an action thriller titled “Trigger Reaction” with his fellow martial arts stars Matthias Hues, Richard Norton and Cynthia Rothrock, however this project was never realized.
Yeung has been in so many martial arts movies, no one can actually remember. And in most of those movies, Bolo loses his on-screen fights to often less gifted martial artists.
Most of those old movies are considered rare today, so this simple post is a video tribute to Bolo Yeung, and his movie fights. Grab something to drink and enjoy the fights below.
