I would think the opposite is true if his diabetes is currently untreated.

Style: Submission Grappling
The announcers said something like “He got tired because he threw to many punches.” But part of the reason that he was dominating Brewster so thoroughly was because he was throwing so many punches. If he hadn’t been throwing as many Brewster may have been able to get past his reach and mount some offense. Of course he got tired, he’s 6’6” and 245lbs. typically oversized heavyweights are not known for their agility, stamina or their ability to recover from punishment. Hauling around all of that weight can be tiring and trying to get all 6’6” back up on those long legs after going down isn’t easy. Jones was right big guys like that can dish it out but can’t take it in return. Klitschko hit Brewster a lot more than Brewster hit him in return but look who was left standing at the end. The fight reminded me of the Ray Mercer/Tommy Morrison and David Izon/Derrick Jefferson fights. Jones actually came out with a pretty funny line “His (Klitscko’s) problem isn’t his chin it’s his heart. He’s like a dog that can’t fight off the bottom.”

IMO he didnt get tired from throwing punches.He got tired because he was tight.Even as he was circling and not punching he was as tense as hell.
He just seems a nervous type.
Not the right kind of mind to perform for millions of dollars.
Competing is a skill just as bobbing, waving and punching is.
Klitschko made it very far because he wasnt worried cause he felt invincible.
Sanders changed all that.
He is more skilled than his brother, but his brother is more of a warrior.

“He got tired because he was tight.”
The perfect example of this was young George Foreman and the old version. While the younger version was superior physically he was so tense and threw every punch with full intensity and as a result tired out after about 5 rounds. The old version despite being well into his forties was so relaxed he could do something that he couldn’t do while he was in his prime in his twenties, fight at a fairly solid pace for a full twelve rounds without collapsing from exhaustion.
