For a thai kickboxer, he throws very little kicks or any elbows or knees. I'm guessing this is on purpose for a later reveal.

The reveal was this chapter!

He was only using regular boxing and not MMA or kickboxing because he didn't think Kaneda was worth it.

Yeah, this is what I was thrusting at and didn't make it clear enough, my bad. He's fighting as a boxer because he's here on a job and that's his professional vocation, not kickboxer(despite him having that knowledge). He doesn't view any of these opponents as worth fighting for the sake of it until Kaneda suddenly is.

I didn't notice because his stance still seems more boxer than mauythai. He's gotten serious for sure but still not mauythai serious.

Wiki says Gaolang was voted the most popular character of the series by far. Lots of Thai fans I suppose

You have been a most worthy adversary, but in every game, there are winners and there are losers. And as you know, in this game, losers get robotizicized!

Gaolang hasnít had his backstory reveal yet, but so far he has been presented as a top tier fighter. If Kaneda wins itís gotta be through some bullshit ďI already know what youíre going to doĒ premonition. Which was foreshadowed in the fight with icy

Has Danberu done a beach chapter yet? I could see them getting lost at sea and accidentally winning the Kengan tournament.

So like I said before, for a mauythai/kickboxer, he sure does throw very little kicks. I reckon in his next match, his kicks are going to be awesome. Unless the writers completely misunderstood mauythai....

It's odd for a pro kickboxer to not utilise his legs even if he is a pro boxer. The reach and power that legs provide a too good of an advantage not to be used. Which is why i think in later fighters (not spoiler because I have not read the raws), he will bust out some awesome Mauy Thai.
