Basically whole team lines up and starts jogging. Person in back sprints to the front. As soon as that person takes the lead solidly, the next person goes. I remember doing that for 30 minutes at a time. That and hill sprints and suicides are great for conditioning.
Suicides? LOL! Those are more for agility training or punishing bad behavior on a team.

Also soccer players might be the highest cardio conditioned athletes on Earth. If a soccer player cannot run, he cannot play soccer at all, period. As much cardio that Floyd has, Lionel Messi and similar caliber players probably have more.

completely different kinds of cardio.

I might be misunderstanding you here - not sure if you mean the kind of cardio that boxers and soccer players have is different? If so they're much more similar than you'd think. I'd imagine both have similar vo2 max with rhr somewhere in the high 30s early 40s. Other traits are more sport specific but the most important base for both sports is a highly developed aerobic system.

I was trying to imply that soccer players are conditioned for running. And they're able to run, boxers' arms are what is used most, just like a 12 round. ixing match can get close to 40 minutes a soccer player wouldn't be able to last that long using their arms. similarly how a grappled can grapple for long extended period of time using his whole body in that system of movements, neither the boxer or soccer player are conditioned for that sort of movement and would gas out early.
