Response to Re: RE: Lewis and screen fighting


Bruce Lee's first choice as the opponent in Way of the Dragon was point fighter Louis Delgado. Louis trained with Bruce in the late 60's and he can be seen kicking the air shield/throwing multiple kicks at Dan Inosanto in the famous backyard videos. Since Louis and Bruce were almost identical in size, Bruce decided on hiring someone who was much bigger, so his next choice was Joe Lewis. Lewis backed out, so Bruce then called Chuck Norris who was 2 inches taller and 15 pounds heavier. The classic happy medium.
