Even if Floyd trained like a maniac he wouldn't beat Connor, and that's fine, they're both better than the other at their own respective disciplines and no amount or training or will would change that.

That is right.

I would also like to develop this thought further.

Even if someone is better at some sport then another guy he can still lose if he acts overconfident and chooses the wrong strategy.

Therefore - Mayweather did not win by default. He quite possibly would have lost if he abandoned any strategic thought and attacked McGregor with full force in round one. Damn he would even lose to a sumo wrestler if he would take that to absurd levels and would attack straight on and never retreat.

So stop saying he toyed with MCGregor and allowed him to get as far as he did. The time he defeated McGregor is determined by the power/endurance ratio between these fighters and their disciplines.

Similarly if they both fought under MMA rules and McGregor would chose a stupid strategy he would still lose. Probably a stupid thing for McGregor to do under these rules would be not to rush Mayweather and not to bring him down to ground and into some chokehold ASAP. But the thing is they are both world class fighters and would chose best strategies they have.
