In boxing it's easy to find defensive masters like Whitaker, Ali, Mayweather, Hopkins, etc. What are some of the great defensive fighters in Muay Thai, international rules and K-1?
Samart Payakaroon comes immediately to mind.
Khun Kao - Samart Payakaroon comes immediately to mind.
Giorgio Petrosyan... Favorite kickboxer to watch, hes too slick.
From what I've seen Samart seems to bring the typical boxing defense into Muay Thai. I'm curious to study masters of defending kicks, knees, clinch, too.
I'll checkout Petrosyan.
Seanchai (former) Sor Kingstar
Don Wilson was pretty elusive out of his side stance. Also Peter Sugerfoot Cunningham was pretty great
Man I show that clip of Samart to EVERYONE!! That's bad ass! And the spinning hook kick that just misses and he doesn't even blink!
