American boxer, Floyd Mayweather will be going toe to toe with UFC fighter, Conor McGregor on the 27th of August. To prepare for that fight, Floyd won't be having sex in the days leading to the battle.
You read that correctly. Money Mayweather might be a modern athlete, but he's still old school in his belief that intercourse before a big fight leads to reduced performance. In a video released by TMZ, a reporter asks him "Floyd are you going to abstain from sex before the fight?" and the boxer replies, "Absolutely".
His opponent on the other hand, feels rather differently. Conor McGregor was asked the same question and he replied:
"That is most certainly a superstition that I do not abide by…I definitely have as much sex as possible."
