Post The Bruce Lee, Pro Boxing Connection

By Brent Matteo Alderson - The legend of Bruce Lee has grown over the years and now itís hard to separate myth from reality. People that grew up with Bruce Lee still perceive him as the ultimate martial artist, the master. The popularity of his films has transformed Lee into an icon to the degree that he has almost become a fictional entity, a figment of pop culture.

Even though serious martial artists respect Leeís accomplishments as a martial artist and readily acknowledge his mastery, they donít acknowledge some of the myths that have spawned from his cinematic performances and are more adapt at separating his fictional performances from reality and donít equate beating Chuck Norris and twenty other warriors in a movie to actually defeating them in combat.

Yet with the distortion of factual history, almost everybody still agrees that Bruce Lee was a genuine bad ass. Even Lee has been quoted as saying he could beat any fighter in the world and some people still claim that he was the best fighter (not boxer) in the world, while others doubt if Lee could have competed with 200 pound-plus heavyweights.

Lee wasn't meant to be in boxing, he was just ahead of his time.

I like how its mentions that a fighter must be guided with the right opponets at first so he can progress. Today i seen some young pros on tv and they had talent but i could see they already were matched too tough.

Who really knows how good Lee could have been. Would have been great to see him be a boxer but he was a great Martial Artist and am very glad to see much of his movies. The guy is a legend.

I remember reading that on the sets of his movie extras would call Lee out to a fight and Lee would fight them, of course he'd win but he'd never back down from a fight.

Also remember reading in a Muhammed Ali autobiography that Lee and Ali once fought in an actual fight. Yet, no cameras were allowed to film or take pictures.

Challengers on the set
Lee's celebrity and martial arts prowess often put him on a collision course with a number of street thugs, stunt men and martial arts extras, all hoping to make a name for themselves. Lee typically defused such challenges without fighting, but felt forced to respond to several persistent individuals.

Bob Wall, USPK karate champion and co-star in Enter the Dragon, recalled a particularly serious encounter that transpired after a film extra kept taunting Lee. The extra yelled that Lee was "a movie star, not a martial artist," that he "wasn't much of a fighter." Lee answered his taunts by asking him to jump down from the wall he was sitting on. Bob Wall described Lee's opponent as "a gang-banger type of guy from Hong Kong," a "damned good martial artist," and observed that he was fast, strong, and bigger than Bruce[17].

Wall recalled the confrontation in detail:

"This kid was good. He was strong and fast, and he was really trying to punch Bruce's brains in. But Bruce just methodically took him apart."[18]
"Bruce kept moving so well, this kid couldn't touch him...Then all of a sudden, Bruce got him and rammed his ass into the wall and swept him, he proceeded to drop his knee into his opponent's chest, locked his arm out straight, and nailed him in the face repeatedly."[19]
After his victory, Lee gave his opponent lessons on how to improve his fighting skills. His opponent, now impressed, would later say to Lee, "You really are a master of the martial arts."[18]

Joe Lewis was just being controversial with his comments. Joe said Lee had on many occasions said to his face if i tell you i'm the best you probably say im boasting. But if i say im not you'll know im lying. Humiliating and making Joe Lewis, the heavyweight champ of the world lose face.. So Joe is just trying to get his own back on Lee after he is dead.
But Joe having mellowed has acknowledged Lee was lightyears ahead of anyone back then, so he thinks he would be now as well. He would instruct todays MMA guys about MA like inept kids.
