It's not like a team sport where you can relax and rely on a team member, or even another solo sport where you can take a (physical and mental) breather as you know by doing so you could get seriously hurt..
MMA maybe close but as there is take downs much less rounds it stops the chances of a 12 round warrior type fight.
Peak for peak I can't think of another athlete that would be as fit and in such a physical shape as the likes of pacquiao and mayweather..

Your thoughts?
There are a few sports more demanding on the endurance side (cycling, triathlon), but all in all a 12-round boxing fight is among the most health-endangering sports event out there (barring accidents). Diving can be very risky, too (apnoe-diving).

The Ironman appears to be just as demanding if not more than boxing.

Though in boxing the athletes worry more about life threatening injuries than most other sports.
