Hi.
I was wondering who is considered the greatest or best Muay Thai boxer,either/both in modern times and of all times.

Cheers.

Ramon Dekker is probably the most respected non native thai boxer that I know of.

As for the Thai's homegrown stars, here is a link to a 'legends' page of a website of my local MT school. I am sure taison will give the definitive answer to this, but it may be of interest to you:

I've heard that too, although I haven't heard much about him other than people saying he was the greatest.
