Let's not all forget that it's not about the style, but it's about the practitioner, as if that practitioner is effective or not, no matter its genre and/or its circa. Boxing...grappling...whatever else it might be, are just a tool of some sort, but without practitioner, and that practitioner making the tool effective.

Imho!!

This topic "boxgrappling" reminds me of the recent McGregor vs Mayweather fight.

Where Conor was holding then hitting, which is illegal in boxing, whereas Floyd was hitting then holding, which is legal.

Perhaps these two fighters are on to something here, with the main idea being "Boxgrappling" and everything else would be illegal.

Muay Thai is pretty much like that. Punching, kicking, elbows and knees in the clinch....

Yes, good observation bushido_man96!

Muay Thai is very much a boxgrappling sport, more than any other; they are also more experienced, efficient and effective with it than any one else.
