ABOUT - Don Wilson - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Wilson_(kickboxer)
I say rewind Hadley and give him Wilson.
Great fighter. These guys are under rated today.
Definitely like seeing the variation of the old school fighters.
A video full of guys who think that they can hit a heavy bag makes them a full contact martial artist.
He was good but he was so smug whenever I heard him speak.
Don the dragon was very tricky. Wasn't really powerhouse guy. He probably lulled people into thinking "this guy aint tough" and he just chopped them down. If you just see snippets of his fights, he looks totally ordinary
Miss that time. Sad that american kickboxing lost so much media attention since then. Was a great time and yes these guys are very much underrated nowadays.
He clearly has a fighters heart and mentality, by him speaking of fighting outside of his town, fighting under different rules etc. around 2:15 i think
tank would have killed don the dragonfly wilson
I had nailed this....
What's interesting is that the reason Don Wilson became a kickboxer was because he wanted to prove that "Kung Fu guys" could fight and that was part of his background hence the nickname "The Dragon" and the use of side kicks which were not common in kickboxing at the time (though I do remember Benny The Jet performing sidekicks in fights) although his experience in Boxing helped too.
Yellow city up in this joint...
