When it comes to striking nowadays, I believe these three styles are at the forefront. From a combat skills standpoint, Boxing, Muay Thai, and Kickboxing are what people are looking to train in. More traditional martial arts aren't considered as heavily. They still have their value, but with the rise of MMA the lines have gotten blurred and that's good so people can expand their skillset, but there are still people who may believe in one over the other, or just want to sharpen their combat skills in one martial art because they enjoy it more.
Who can tell you which style would be best for your train in? I don’t know if anyone could give you the answer you are looking for because anyone who trains in one or the others comes to the table with their own biases.
I believe they can all coexist with great effectiveness, but you still must have one primary skillset that is elevated by your proficiency in the other two. So look at it like a triangle with your primary striking art at the top and others at the bottom propping it up.
