fighting MYTH??

First I want to say that I am asking a serious question so I want peoples serious opinions. I have heard from many different people, which some don't even know eachother, that it is a bad idea to have sex within a week or 2 weeks before a fight. It is said that it "takes your legs away". Basically that if you get a hard punch to the gut that you will probably go down, however if you wait you have a better chance not to. It also makes you more aggressive and helps you lose weight. I just want to know if anyone can give me their two cents without making it into a joke.

i really dont think it makes a difference bro. and in reality, not having sex is probably taking away from your everyday life. its like boxers going away from their families to train. why? it seems to add an unnecessary mental stress on you that may in fact make you fight worse. i'd just say go through your everyday life and be yourself before fights rather than change everything for a week...

I am reasonably well-informed about physiology and medicine, and I can't think why this would be true. I suspect it is a myth.

muhammed ali supposedly didnt have sex for almost 6 weeks before his fights, which is suprising to me seeing how much he loved women. Hes the only one I ever heard of taking it to that extreme.......Sugar ray leonard once said that he would have sex up until the night before the fight i believe, and we all know how good he was. I really dont think it makes a huge difference. I wouldnt recommend beating cheeks the day of tho, just because the testosterone lost so near to the match might someway affect your aggressiveness ....just my 2 cents

The reason that myth came up I think is because 2 to 3 weeks before a fight you should be training and no foolin around.

The only thing I've heard about it is that you shouldn't have sex on the same day before a fight and preferably the day before. Its something to do with the sexual release that causes fatigue. Its why most people just want to go to sleep right after.
