RE: Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor is August 26th 2017
You have to run, there's no substitute, and the bulk of it needs to be long duration steady state (always makes me laugh the idiots out there that read a bit of sport science and decide that interval training is the best thing because it mimics the demands of a fight, meanwhile the Thais stick to what they know works from trial and error (10 km plus 6 days a week) and have great fighting endurance). Adaptation is specific to the activity, which is why boxers run because they fight on their feet, and swimmers swim in the pool. Training the other energy systems also needs to be specific, which is why interval training with running doesn't really ever have the desired effect, whereas punch out drills and stuff actually work.

In addition to what Kai has mentioned, although the aerobic system is the most trainable of all of the energy systems, there is still a genetic component to it - I've got an RHR in the high 30s - low 40s even though I haven't ran for years - the hospital I was at couldn't even do an ecg on me because it was so low recently and the nurse had to talk to me and stuff to get it to come up a bit because of how the equipment was set up. Guys like Jermaine Taylor just didn't have the stamina no matter what training they did.
