    so I read a couple of days ago that Francois Ambang had a KO loss in boxing against lightheavy weight kingpin Sergey Kovalev, I was wondering if there are other Muay Thai fighters or kickboxers who have fought big names in boxing

    Jarrell Miller is doing well in boxing, he will probably be fighting for a major title soon.

    Heavyweight boxers Dillian Whyte, Ustinov, Jarrell Miller all started as kickboxers. There is probably many many more

    Vitali klitschko, Marco Huck and Alexander Povetkin all won major amateur kickboxing titles. Kilitschko also held numerous titles as a pro. Chris Algieri held the ISKA and WKA world titles in kickboxing and ended up winning the WBO jr welter title and fought Pac man, Khan and Spence jr. Khan struggled with Algieri, but Pac man dominated him and Spence crushed him.

    Skelton left a pretty good career in kickboxing to become British heavyweight boxing champion.
