In terms of skills and accomplishments in one fight, is it? If not what is it?
Buakaw-Yi Long imo.
no when Buakaw and Petro fought it was like Pacman vs JMM 1 if K-1 didn't screw over Buakaw in the '09 Finals then it could've been.
Don't remind me, that ruined that event. We were well on our way to the rematch, and they robbed us of that and we will never get to see it again as a result
Yi Long being the Mayweather
Funny I seem to remember Pacquiao being tooled.
just like Buakaw.
Buakaw got robbed by Yi Long badly.
Mayweather schooled pacquiao and the ones that deny it either dont understand boxing or are biased. Kinda like the same people who say Roosmalen beat sittichai in the first fight.
the mayweather pacquiao of muay thai would be any of these 3 fighting eachother
yodsanklai, buakaw, saenchai
its what the world wants........will it ever happen? nope!
Saenchai is too small for the other 2, however a Yodsanklai vs. Buakaw could still happen for the right money. I had my hopes up last year...
People have been waiting for Buakaw vs Yod since atleast '06 and they'll still be waiting for a long time to come.
I like your optimism...
Personally I'll keep believing it could happen:
I really don't see the need for it now I would rather see Yod compete at a decent level and watch Buakaw do his novelty fights although it'd be better now then seeing them in there like this.
In terms of accomplishments within kickboxing yes but the fight has already happened. I think Buakaw vs Yod would be a lot bigger under muaythai.
Tenshin Nasukawa and Takeru Sagawa would certainly be the Rigo/Loma of kickboxing!
I think being realistic, the Pacman/Mayweather of kickboxing would be Buakaw vs Yodsanklai, in that it would happen too late, both would be past their prime and nobody would really want it once they got it.
I'm mostly poking fun, but those two are the two best kickboxers in the lower weights right now, and are coincidentally a similar weight to Rigondeaux and Lomachenko
They could be old enough to be their son tho
