A great boxer would beat a poor MT fighter. A fabulous MT fighter would beat a lesser boxer.

its the person, not the style, that wins a fight.

Love what you train in, strive to be the best you can, and you give yourself the best 'fighting chance' you can, irrespective of the art.

Would depend on who controlled the range and pace of the fight, and who had the better footwork/defence on the day.

again, style vs style hypothesis is useless.

i think it's kind of cool that geographically seperated areas came to similar training methods. it seems to validate these stand up styles we're talking about and make it difficult to compare theme in a style vs style match.

but some style vs style comparisons are fun if the styles are wildly different. i saw a funny video of Drunken Style Kung Fu vs. Kyokushin Karate and the Kung Fu guy got trashed. but boxer vs MT? it's the fighter.

I wish I knew how other Muay Thai academies train. We have a reputation of being terrible at throwing punches. At the Muay Thai academy I attend, we work hard on our punches. A lot of the time, we have sparring matches with boxing rules. No knees, kicks or elbows and no clinch.

This whole arguement is flawed. Based on the information provided, my money is on the Thai boxer. Most American kickboxers and Western boxers don't condition their legs to take blows. One or two well placed kicks to the leg and they probably wouldn't want to fight anymore.

Also, Thai boxers have a range advantage. At long range we have our kicks, mid range we have punches, a few kicks and some possibility of a straight knee and up extremely close we have our elbows, knees plus the clinch. In a straight boxing match, my money would obviously go on the boxer. Anything else and I'd probably go with the Muay Thai guy. It's hard to punch from a clinch and a clinch can be tricky to escape if you don't know how to break it. American kickboxers have the best of both worlds. They train punches like a Western boxer and have Muay Thai's kicks with the exception of leg kicks and knees. It's anyone's game. I personally prefer Muay Thai. At least I prefer the way that my academy teaches it. I could very possibly hate it anywhere else.

So basically most of the time the kickboxer will win due to most boxers' lack of experience with leg kicks... right? That's basically what I got from this video + your opinions.

First of all the type of training one goes through affects how good of a Muay Thai Kickboxer or Boxer one is. You can't compare a really good boxer w/ a MT guy who has ok hand skills.

My Kru has legs of steel and really sharp knee and shin bones. If a boxer comes in he will literally disable your legs before the opponent can get a punch in. Though I'm not going to doubt a boxer if he can get into his comfortable range.

And someone brought up that a boxer can take on an MMA fighter, I really don't think so. If we're talking about a pure boxer, it's all gonna be meaningless if they get taken to the ground. Boxers aren't allowed to do much when they meet in a clinch situation, and don't know anything about ground skills.

The punches of a boxer are probably perfect but that won't let them adapt with any situation.
