    Hello everyone

    Can some of you recommend me some really good fights in kickboxing or muay thai with a good display of technical or spectacular striking?

    If you could mention what to look for in particular in those fights aswell that would be cool.

    Sorry if this topic has been posted before, but I haven't seen it yet.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Im no expert but I would think most of Giorgio Petrosyan's fights would be what your looking for. Try Giorgio Petrosyan vs Andy Souwer.

    In both of these examples these guys look like they are standing pretty square. Is it just me?

    Look for technical fighters and pick one you like. Either Petrosyan, and Nicky Holtzkin are my guys for kickboxing, Khem, Soren Monkongtong for MT. Just because somebody wins a lot, doesn't mean that they are overly technical way or apropriate to the style you want, (Van Roosmalan, Askarov.......Yod).
    Find somebody you like the style of and follow them.

    Thanks everyone. Now I have a place to start :)

    I haven't seen too much kickboxing or MT, so getting some names to look for is great!

    But by all means, keep posting ;)

    I know, I know! He's very technical, but I wouldn't say to a relatively new guy to go watch him and try to copy what he does. Same with RVR, he's a wrecking ball, but I wouldn't say watch him and try to do that. Crisp, clean technique, and using all of the basic weapons available is what I'd recommend. If when fella gets a bit more advanced and wants to fight like Yod, or Pornsane, or, Ghita, by all means give'r

    This is a really good fight between imho the best Farang fighter of all time and one of the all time MT greats. It's technical in that is shows how a great all rounder MT fighter deals with the better kickboxer. Dany Bill vs. Sakmongkol. Incidentally I think if K1 max or Glory had of been around then prime Dany Bill would have cleaned house.
    Here's part 1&2:

    Yeah probably I don't speak thai but I've heard it used to describe black western fighters on occasion. Not particularly, mostly his hard kicking and come forward style but you don't get to be an elite thai born and bred fighter without having very good clinch skills. Same can't be said for fighters outside of thailand.

    I've always read farang as a adaptation of foreigner.
