DEONTAY WILDER claims he had sex two hours before his professional debut 12 years ago.
The WBC heavyweight champion beat Ethan Cox inside two rounds in Nashville, Tennessee.
And Wilder, 34, who defends his title against Tyson Fury next week admitted he just couldn’t keep his hands to himself as his wife was with him in the dressing room before the fight.
He told iFL TV: “So many things went wrong with my debut, I end up having sex two hours before the fight.
“I got horny man, I ant even gonna lie, I had my wife in there with me and you just start thinking freaky thoughts.
“That’s why it ain’t good to have your partner in there with you, but for me, I like the company.
“I like being around family, especially the ones I love, giving me motivation to do what I got to do when it’s time.
“With that right there, that’s a mindset you have to overcome, my mindset – I didn’t care, I thought I’m going to get this p**** you know what I’m saying.
Wilder claims that having sex before a fight actually gives him energy and doesn’t weaken his legs.
“I said this was going to be my good luck charm because when I do things like that, I have sex, it doesn’t weaken me, it doesn’t make my legs a certain way, it actually gives me energy.
“It’s just like with medicine, different people’s body reactions is different, that’s the unique part of our body and the way it works.
“With me sex gives me energy, that’s why I was able to go in there and blast him (Ethan Cox) out.”
