Response to Re: Question about Robert Clouse's Comment about Lee and Ali

 

To end all speculation, Bruce Lee died after facing Ali in a no holds barred match, held in a makeshift ring, in Hong Kong's New Territories, July 19th, 1973. It took 24 hours to announce the result of this tragic event, as Ali left HK for Zaire to take on George Foreman shortly afterward. The press then made up the allegations of Lee being found in the home of an actress and so forth, to save face. He was apparently hit with a single right cross, along the temple, which caused cerebral edema. It's said he folded like an accordion, as onlookers rushed to his aid. One observer who asked to remain anonymous, was overheard to have screamed "DAMN!", in Cantonese, quite loudly! Photographers and cameras weren't allowed on scene, as Bruce didn't want Ali to suffer embarrassment.

Info recount by:

Yu Bin Had, HK Associated Press Esquire. July 22, 1973.
