Being in the vet field for 20 + years and having a masters in animal behavior I can tell you it all has to deal with the breeding. I have seen Filas and Tosa's that can go all day and I have seen Mal's that shut down quickly. If you want a good competitive dog look at what the lines in the breeding has done.
If there is too much working lines you can also get a dog with ADD. I have had at least 5 cases of ADD in Mal's GSD, and Dutchs. This was just dogs that had so much drive that they could not complete any task that was asked of them and they were a loose cannon.
With your Pit lines some have added American Bulldog in to give more bulk and that can bring the drive down to some point. I can't tell youhow many Pits I have seen with bigger heads and chests than my Dogue de Bordeaux, and these dogs can barely hold their heads up little lone work.
Some breeds that you may have not thought about that make great competitors: Bouvier's, Giant Schanauzers, But they suck at grooming. Dogo Argentinas, American Bulldog ( not Johnson lines) . I am partial to my Tosa but they are a very tough dog and not a dog for most people. I also love my Am Staff. She is very typey Am staff longer nose shorter but she is a bullet when need be.
So that's my two cents take it what you will
