Well, is boxing harder than Muay Thai? Muay Thai is stronger than boxing simply because kicks, elbows, knees, and clinches uses more major muscle sets and result in a stronger move in the conventional sense of the word. However, there isn't one Thai boxer who can pack as much of a wallop with his punch as a Boxer can.
And, is Muay Thai useful in real life?
Muay Thai is useful in real life in many ways to varying degrees. With its roots in military combat, Muay Thai is an effective striking and self-defense skill in and outside of the sporting ring.

Boxing Gloves and Muay Thai gloves are not the same, though are often are used interchangeably. Typically, if you only box you should opt for a western boxing-style glove. For Muay Thai, you can use either a Muay Thai style glove or a Boxing style glove.
Why are Muay Thai Fighters Skinny? Muay Thai fighters are skinny because their training is intense. Professional Muay Thai fighters train twice daily, 6 days a week. They only take a week off after a fight and then it's back to the same routine.
The techniques you learn in a Muay Thai class can keep you safe on the street. Muay Thai is also one of the few martial artsin the world that has been undeniably battle-tested and street certified for real-life encounters.
The Jab. The most common muay thai punching technique is the Jab. ... Then you have to punch straight with one hand and use the other hand to perform any other punching technique. Fighters use the jab most frequently as it is the quickest punching technique to perform.
The long-term effects of Muay Thai on the brain are unclear. Research is lacking—certainly in English language—on former Muay Thai fighters and permanent damage that might have resulted from head trauma sustained during fights. Most existing studies on the subject were conducted on international rules boxers.
Sport vs Self Defense While they share similar roots, modern Muay Thai vs Krav Maga is very much a comparison of a combat sport and a self-defense system. ... Unlike Muay Thai, Krav Maga training focuses not on countering someone with your own skill set but countering whatever your attacker may bring to the table.
In MMA the focus is on damage. In MMA as long as a technique is effective in causing damage that's really what matters most. Stylish techniques in muay thai such as the reverse spinning elbow, effortless clinch throws and catching kicks and dumping opponents all score highly in muay thai but are of little use in MMA.
How powerful is a muay thai round kick? ... One website states that a Muay Thai roundhouse kick transfers energy about on par with the kinetic energy of a strike from a baseball bat-480 lbs of force per strike-and a video (which actually shows a variety of kicking styles) attributes 1400-2300 lbs to various kicks.
On top of beating Schilling, Rogan also broke Francis Ngannou's punch power record of 129,161 on the PowerKube, a blow that was confirmed as the hardest ever thrown. It's a remarkable feat considering the circumstances.
