Mike Tyson shared that he used to have sex with groupies right before his fights so he would not kill his opponents in the ring.
“One of the greatest secrets with Mike was that he needed to have sex in the dressing room before fights,” Rudy Gonzalez, Tyson’s former chauffeur, said to The Sun.

“He had to get laid to disengage some of the strength he had. So I had girls tucked away in bathrooms and changing rooms. Mike would say, ‘If I do not get laid, I will kill this guy right now.’ Sometimes he’d go in with them [the women] for a minute, bang the sh*t out of them, snap his neck and say: ‘OK, this guy is going to live tonight.’ ”
He continued, “His biggest fear was that he would kill someone in that ring. He knew he could do it. It is no exaggeration to say Mike was like a train hitting these guys. Having sex was his way of disengaging that power and loosening up a bit.”
