Digital Spy recently spoke to Damian Priest when he told a story about his father and Chuck Norris. The two had an exhibition fight in the 1970’s prior to Norris’ breakout celebrity fame. There was no official winner in that fight, but Priest says that if they were keeping points his father would have been the victor.
“(The story) was something that I heard from, not just him, but from other martial artists that were around in that era, in the 70s, and it was before Chuck Norris was even a name. They had an exhibition fight that wasn’t meant to have a winner, but they all said that if there was one by points, or whatever, my father landed way more strikes and kind of outperformed (Norris) so he would have won the fight in that sense.”
