Podcast On Fire 178: King Boxer & The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter


It’s a tribute to those who died this episode, some way before this episode was even recorded, some fairly recently. And we come at this with a Shaw Brothers tint as we will discuss two of the most enduring martial arts classics in the form of King Boxer directed by Jeng Cheong-woh from 1972 and Lau Kar-leung’s The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter from 1984. With Kenny B and special guest host Mike Maley, discussing the impact and lives of the movies and players.
