    If you count Giorgio as a nak muay then I'd add in Manny Pacquiao as well.

    I wouldn't class Giorgio as a nakmuay even thou hes had muaythai fights in the past hes still a kickboxer and that's what he normally competes in but if we are talking both kickboxing and muaythai then yes he deserves to be on the list.

    Saenchai, Samart, Attachai, Sittichai, Panpayak, Petpanomrung are a few elusive southpaws I can think of.
    Karuhas Sor Suphawan was also elusive. He wasnt specifically a southpaw but he used to switch from orthodox to southpaw quite a lot in his fights.

    Maybe Pacquiao not the best example. Pernell Whitaker and Rigondeaux are better ones :)

    Petrosyan has a pretty clear Muay Thai influence on his style and rhythm. His style is closer to Muay Thai than Dutch or Japanese Kickboxing.

    Attachai definitely. But i'm biased
    Saenchai has it all of course, but Attachai evasions were things of beauty
