Apples to oranges my friend. A few buddies that train Muay Thai sparred with Buakaw in the Toronto area a few years back... he's a beast for his size.

Of course he'd beat Mayweather or Pacquiao in a K1 or Muay Thai fight. But likewise, you put him in a strict boxing fight with these guys and he'd get walked on.

No denying talent buy you can't compare the sports just like that.
