Kickboxing legend Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson exposes ’44-0′ opponent
Many people get confused about just who Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson is as many seem to think he is just an action/martial arts film star, but he is far from just that. He is arguably one of the greatest American kickboxers ever who took on a lot of elite-level fighters throughout his legendary career.
However, his opponent here in this video is clearly not one of those such fighters. His opponent here, named Ashraf Tai, hails from Pakistan and claimed to have a very impressive (albeit highly suspicious), undefeated record of 44-0 going into this fight.
In combat sports, however, who you have fought is much more important than your record which really is just a number. This is especially true in sports like MMA and kickboxing versus boxing, for instance, where having an impressive record is somewhat important.
If you look at some of the names that Wilson fought in his career – guys like Maurice Smith and Dennis Alexio (Wilson beat both by the way), and then you look at who Ashraf fought and you can’t recognize any of the names, that ’44-0′ record suddenly doesn’t seem so impressive.
As we can see in the video below, Wilson’s opponent here, Ashraf, looks like a total and complete amateur in there. It almost looks like he’s never fought or even trained a day in his life.
Check out the video below to see the legend, Don Wilson, effortlessly destroy and expose his so-called ’44-0′ opponent.
