Mayweather hands down. Well, not literally hands down... he'd need to keep his hands up

Good for Torres that he "could beat Mayweather in MMA". Mayweather is getting a $15,000,000 gurantee plus a PPV cut for his next fight while Torres is struggling to make $40G's per fight. I know who i would rather be.

Easily. Mayweather is in a sport where you do one thing : punch people. Torres is in a sport where you do A LOT of things : like submissions, wrestling, punches and kicks.

In boxing you use, well, boxing. In MMA, you use Jiu Jitsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Greco Roman Wrestling, Wrestling, Boxing, Muay Thai Kick Boxing, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Shotokan, do I really need to continue? And NO, I'm not saying that Torres contains all these skills, but he sure as hell contains a lot more than Mayweather. That makes him more athletic. Thanks for reading have a nice day.

Because they do more they are more athletic. We obviously have different opiniions on athletic talent. By your theory every MMA fighter is more athletic than Floyd Mayweather. Coaches challenges on TUF,the fact that Brock Lesnar can win a title in 3 fights and 2 years training tells me that MMA fighters are not the most athletic athletes in the world.

I recoggnise athetic talent as: Speed, reflexes, co-ordination, balance, agility and flexibilty and strength (p4p, bodyweight exercises). As an athlete Mayweather is light years ahead of Torres.

I think you are severely underating Torres, i'd think they are pretty even, Mayweather might be ahead but not light years ahead.
