Sex off the menu for boxing heavyweight

Boxing champ David Haye has had to make a lot of sacrifices to achieve success, but perhaps one of the biggest is foregoing sex.

The British heavyweight, who recently enjoyed a remarkable victory against Russian giant Nikolai Valuev, said he goes without nookie for ten weeks before a big fight in order to keep his focus.

He claimed that without such sacrifices, it would have been impossible for him to accomplish what he has.

“Every single pleasure you have must be cut out of your life. Food, sex, everything. There is no room for anything other than training and fighting,” he explained.

But while his self-restraint is certainly impressive, David does admit that he misses being away from his wife Natasha for months at a time.

No doubt there will be plenty of bedroom action going on in the Haye household on his return, especially when he comes back with a winning trophy.

The 29-year-old married Natasha last year and they have an 18-month-old son named Cassius.
