Why do boxers from Brooklyn have terrible stamina

Several of those guys had pretty good stamina in their primes. Tyson against Tucker and Smith was very strong in the twelfth round. Bowe in his two bouts with Holyfield had to have great stamina for those wars. For a couple of those fighters like Breland had spent a very long time in the amateurs. Their bodies are conditioned for 3 rounds for a long time. In time they improve on it but even great amateurs like Breland may have trouble making the adjustment. Big John Tate(not Brooklyn I know) was a good amateur and as a pro had championship skills. But later in the fight it all fell apart. I always attributed it to his conditioning and endurance.
But I really doubt there is a direct correlation between bad stamina and being from Brooklyn.
