Lured by martial arts from a young age, it was only a matter of time before the young Bolo join a martial arts club, actually when he was 10 years old. He started to work with several kung fu masters, however, as he became older, his interest switched to bodybuilding. Little by little his career improved, and he became the Mr. Hong Kong bodybuilding champion, largely increasing his net worth.

Thanks partly to his good looks, he ventured into the entertainment industry, firstly appearing in commercials; while filming the commercial for Winston cigarettes, he met and befriended Bruce Lee, and their friendship soon extended to professional collaboration for the film “Enter The Dragon” (1973), in which Bolo portrayed the role of Bolo, adopting the pseudonym. Prior to this role, he had a number of appearances in Hong Kong films, including “The Wandering Swordsman”, which was his debut appearance, “The Oath of Death” (1972), and “Man of Iron” (1972), among others all of which increased his net worth, but also helped him build his career.

Throughout the 1970s, Bolo appeared in such productions as “International Assassin” (1976) starring Yu Wang, “Game Of Death” (1978) again with Bruce Lee as well as Colleen Camp and Gig Young. Before the end of the 1970s, he also appeared in “Way of the Dragon 2” (1978), and “The Fists, the Kicks and the Evil” (1979), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

His career reached a whole new level in the 1980s, appearing in more notable roles in films such as “Supergang” (1984), “Shanghai Express” (1986), with Sammo Kam-Bo Hung and Biao Yuen. In 1988 he was cast as Chong Li in the film “Bloodsport”, alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme, and before the 1980s ended, he featured in “Bloodfight” (1989).

Bolo continued successfully in the 1990s, transferring the momentum from the late 1980s, by acquiring roles in such successful films as “Double Impact” (1991), collaborating again with Jean-Claude Van Damme, then in “Tiger Claws” (1991) as Chong – a role he also portrayed in the sequel “Tiger Claws II” (1996) – “Ironheart” (1992), “Shootfighter: Fight to the Death” (1993), and in its sequel “Shootfighter II” (1996).

He took a break from acting, but returned in 2007 with a role in “Blizhniy Boy: The Ultimate Fighter” (2007), and his next and so far latest role came in 2016, in the film “The Whole World at Our Feet”; all of these appearances added a substantial amount to Bolo`s net worth.

Regarding his personal life, little is known in the media about Bolo Yeung; apart from the fact that he has three children, but any other information about his family life is unknown.

#Quote
1I have always been happy being the bad guy.
2It's work, whether I'm the hero or the villain. I'm not a kid anymore, where nervousness keeps me from sleeping.
3Why do we always defend? Tai Chi never actively attacks. The art of war says "Retreating when the enemy advances".
4Among those people who have religion, there are small proportions of people who do good things but conditionally. They are opportunists. The reason why they do good things is the fear of the hell and the desire for the heaven. This kind of person may not necessarily still do good things if there is no heaven or hell. This kind of person made the meaning of people into data. A lot of things are screwy now. Confucianism nearly disappeared. Taoism became the tool to tell geomantic omen. Even the Buddhism temple is became a profiting organization. There are even more. But I don't think I would like to talk about it anymore.
5Durning the filming of Enter the Dragon, Bruce and I worked very closely on technique training. We experimented, trying to decide what worked and what wouldn't. You see, Bruce was always learning, always experimenting, always changing.
6I realize I'm still very popular with audiences and that's makes me very happy. I think that all started with Bruce Lee and Enter the Dragon. All the fans and audiences from 20 years ago still remember Bruce lee as the biggest star. They still have not found anyone to take his place. Also, it helped to work with Jean Claude Van Damme on his movies. Like Bruce lee, Jean-Claude offered a special package, a unique look that attracted and kept audiences coming back.
7I know what is good for me as an actor. Because of the way I look, that is what I am going to be a success in. I know my place in movies; no matter how good an actor is, if he doesn't know his place in the movies he will never be successful.
8There are plenty of times people will come up to me for an autograph and tell me they enjoyed my work on Enter the Dragon. But people just know me from the movie, they don't really know who I am.
9I had the opportunity to come to America back in 1973. The plans were all made and everything. Then Bruce died, and everything fell through. So I'm getting here 17 years late. Maybe I'm little old now, but that's no problem.
