Question about stance
 
In boxing, you usually have your elbows closer to your body. In Muay Thai, you usually have your elbows a bit further from your body.

What purpose does this have? I know in Muay Thai they throw elbows and that might be the reason, but there has the be reason why boxing requires you to keep your elbows closer to your body.

Some MThai guys keep a more Boxing style stance but one reason for having the Elbows out a bit is to help with balance when throwing a Kick
