Uh.. how about no?
Never be results oriented... What cards the villain had this one specific time isn't in the slightest bit useful to determining if we should have called or folded.
If they happened to have 27o and 4Jo... (yes it's possible..no it isn't likely) this ONE time are you going to decide to always make this call in this situation?
Edit: btw KK is a 66% favorite over AKs AIPF... I kinda consider that pretty dominated
Furthermore... as has already been pointed out, stack sizes and any available information on the two villains would be immensely useful in making this determination.
Let's say it's early in the tournament, we know nothing about either villain and all 3 of us have roughly the same size stack... I'm folding this pretty much always. I have no interest in sticking my money in when I'm at best a slight favorite (and less than 50% favorite at that... ) Against any pair QQ or less we essentially flipping, against KK or AA we are really dominated, against let's say another AK and any pair we aren't in good shape (2 of our 8 outs are gone).. best case scenarios are that you're up against let's say AQ and AJ (or something to that effect...) and even then you are only ~50% favorite... AJ and ANY pair QQ or below and you aren't even the favorite (~34% vs the pairs 42%)
