Watched a fight which featured Rungrawee (vs Seeoy Sor Soonuntachai) on Youtube last night which a friend had reccomended.
Rungrawee looks the business to my untrained eye but I couldn't help but feel he would last 10 seconds with an aggressive boxer like Barrera in his prime. Thai boxers at the elite level seem very deliberate in their techniques and I appreciate that an elbow or knee could suddenly come from any angle but a Barrera or Tszyu type fighter who is coiled on the back foot with fast hands, great sense of range and distance pushing forward with a truly aggressive mindset would surely school Rungrawee.
Respect to the Muay Thai fighters. Great sense of tradition and pride.
