Default The Thais

Who are the best Thai boxers? Do they all cross over from Muay Thai kickboxing? I know one of the most successfull muay thai to boxing fighters is Paul Briggs.

JWP was great don't get me wrong, but, while not really full MT rules, the Netherlands clearly has the best kick boxing nation outside SEA.

I was asked just this week. This was my opinion then (few posts down) it's rambling but might be of interest.

Samart Payakaroon was the most talented though. The weight drained corpse you saw against Fenech was not indictative of his real class.

He was pretty good. His brother was more talented though.

Give me some more info. Fenech would have beaten any version of Payakaroon so the result certainly was never in doubt

But more susceptible to being knocked out for no apparent reason

Agreed.

And Smitty you're right, in boxing. In a straight up fight Samart would've killed Fenech, literally.

Not in an all out street fight. Fenech ****s him up there. He is one bantamweight who would have a 50-50 chance in a street fight with Liston.

Payakaroon would decimate him. Fenech's style Vs Eight limbs is a terrible idea.
