Trend Brutal Martial:

Hey there, welcome back to the channel. If you’re watching this video, you’ll benefit from the beauties of the internet. We always want to speculate in the most natural course of order for anyone who values a good adrenaline rush, wants to know who would win a fight between two people that might never go at one another. So in today’s video of celebrity fights, we bring you two legends from Hong Kong: Bolo Yeung and Sammo Hung. Stay tuned to the end to see who among these legends can beat the other. Let’s meet our participants and see what they’re bringing into the arena before we get started with the action. Let’s start with Bolo Yeung.

Trend Brutal Martial:

Bolo Yeung

Yeung’s true name is Yang Sze but the moniker Bolo Yeung has remained with him since he established a successful career as a martial artist, martial arts film actor, and competitive bodybuilder. Yeung rose to prominence in Asian cinema after a series of performances as a fearsome villain, the most well known of which was in the film Enter the Dragon in which he co-starred with the great Bruce Lee. Yeung played Bolo in that film. His other memorable appearances include Chong Li in the film Bloodsport in which he co-starred with Jean-Claude Van Damme. After that he played Chang Lee in the film Bloodfight which also featured Simon Yam and Yasuaki Kurata.

Bolo Yeung began his martial arts career when he was just 10 years old. Several Kung Fu teachers mentored Yeung as he grew up helping him polish his Kung Fu talents and become a superb martial artist. However, martial arts was only one of Yeung’s many passions. Bodybuilding was also a childhood passion for the Hong Kong native. Yeung earned the Mr Hong Kong Bodybuilding Champion after investing a lot of time and effort in the endeavor, a title he regained for a staggering 10 years. Bolo Yeung’s powerful build very well established the types of parts he’d portray in the film business. He possessed the ideal body and demeanor for adversarial roles as arch-nemesis villains. He masterfully embraced such personalities, making them nearly despicable.

Yeung was frequently cast as the evil guy in Shaw Brothers Studio films which is unsurprising. Before leaving the Shaw Brothers in 1971, Yeung continued to work with them, starring in many films. However, while filming a Winston cigarette commercial, Yeung encountered the great Bruce Lee who was so taken with Yeung’s abilities that he offered him a part in the film Enter the Dragon. This would be the start of a growing relationship between the two of them. The bond became so remarkable that Bolo Yeung is known to have told everyone that Bruce Lee’s death had a huge impact on his career. He also became somewhat inactive after the tragedy and it seemed as if his heart was broken.

Eventually, Yeung did get over Bruce’s death and time healed the wounds. His next major work was Bloodsport. This time Yeung acted alongside Jean-claude Van Damme who was cast as the lead character Frank Dux. Yeung was once more given a villain’s role playing Chong Li. As was the case of the friendship between Yeung and Lee, Jean-claude Van Damme and Yeung also became close. Once Bloodsport was completed and released Damme and Yeung worked together for another movie called Double Impact. Yeung’s career was blossoming and he also starred in more movies, including Tiger Claws, TC 2000, Tiger Claws 2 and then Diamond Cartel.

Sammo Hung

Our next contestant is Sammo Hung, who’s also very well known in the movie industry, especially in Asia. Hung has had multiple occupations all related to the film. He’s worked as an actor, a director, and a producer. Essentially though, at his core, Hung is a martial artist. He enjoys a lot of credit for his role in popularizing martial arts in film. He achieved this by incorporating Kung Fu into almost all his movies. Beyond just his own movies, Hung also promoted martial arts through his role as a choreographer for popular stars in the Asian movie industry. This includes big shots like John Woo and even Jackie Chan.

Hung is very widely respected for his contribution to the martial arts culture that began to soon dominate the entire industry. Because of these reasons, Hung is also known as Hung Kam-bo and often also called “Dai Goh Dai” as a sign of respect. This can be loosely translated to mean “the biggest of all big brothers”.

Hung made his debut as an actor in the movie Shaolin Pilot. Subsequently, he gradually worked his way to become a dominant figure in the industry. His contributions stretch far beyond just acting and choreographing. His popularity in the industry also meant he would generally be able to support many future big shots to make their plays.

Where did he begin though? He was born on January 7, 1952, in British Hong Kong. Even though both of his parents worked as costume stylists in the film industry, Hung spent his whole childhood with his grandparents who were also artists. He enrolled at the China Drama Academy and joined the Seven Little Fortunes, a performance troupe that would later welcome Jackie Chan and make significant contributions to his career. His actual debut, albeit not so popular, was as a child actor in the 1962 movie called Education of Love. As a supporting character, he starred with Jackie Chan in Big and Little Wong Tin Bar. Soon after Hung became an assistant director at the Shaw Brothers Studios. But he still did not limit himself to the role of such, performing both as a stuntman and an actor on certain occasions. Of his most notable stuntman performances, the exceptionally well known include movies like A Touch of Zen, The Fate of Lee Khan and the most famous Enter the Dragon.

Hung created a famous trio with Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao in the 1980s. As a result of their appearances in multiple films together, the 3 actors were known as the 3 dragons. Hung would go on to create a slew of popular martial arts films through his four production companies, cementing his position as a major figure in the business.

Sammo Hung vs Bolo Yeung

Since we now have a detailed idea of who we’re putting up against each other, let’s finally get to the more exciting bit. Since we can’t really put the two inside the ring, we’ll use a few metrics. There will be heritage, training, physique and adaptability. Of course, the results simply cannot be definitive since this entire fight is based on a hypothetical scenario. However, it’s still important that we try to be as accurate as possible. It can’t be 100% correct, but it can be the next best thing.

Trend Brutal Martial:


In terms of heritage, there’s not much of a tough comparison. It can be argued that since we do not know much about Yeung’s parents, we can give Hung the upper hand here as his grandparents were both artists with a degree of affiliation with Kung Fu. However, at the same time, we cannot disregard the fact that Yeung began training very early at the age of 10. So whether his parents or elders practice Kung Fu becomes irrelevant since there was sufficient emphasis on Yeung’s own training.

Trend Brutal Martial:


Training is also a close call since both of our contestants are exceptional martial artists. They’re both well trained in their respective arts. So in terms of training too, there’s not much of a differential that can help us be the judge. It seems that so far Yeung and Hung are going well, with neither trumping the other.

Trend Brutal Martial:


Next up, it’s important to discuss their physiques. At his peak, Yeung stood 5’6″ and weighed nearly 70 kg. Hung had the same exact height. Albeit, he’s heavier than Yeung by 5 kg. Although the weight on Hung cannot be considered as a significant plus point since he was slightly chubbier, whereas Yeung was much leaner and more muscular. So if it’s physique, Yeung is going to have the upper hand.

Trend Brutal Martial:


Should the two go at each other, the fight will be out of this world. In terms of how well they can adapt, it almost comes down entirely to speculation. Of course, we can only grasp some hints through their works but given how they were never active in combat situations during films they shot, we can hardly be accurate in this too. Again, I think we can draw a tangent here if we’re dead bent on deriving some sort of results. So the two main things that influence adaptability are intelligence and physique. It would be insulting to call either man less intelligent than his counterpart and both are undoubtedly masters for a reason. Yeung and Hung are both very capable mentally and intellectually and have undergone years of training successfully. But if we revert to the physique as something that facilitates adaptability, we can say that the slightly leaner body type that Yeung has makes him more agile and can potentially give him a marginal benefit.

Winner: Bolo Yeung

So if you followed the results carefully so far, you probably get who the winner is. Yeung wins! Of course, the victory is only marginal since there was not any significant difference. The only advantage Yeung has over Hung is being a little less chubby, but that too is only so little that it might not even make a difference. Nevertheless, for the sake of argument, we hand this victory over to Yeung. But since this is all hypothetical, let’s not take this as anything factual. We might just be wrong.
