‘I’m a boxing legend who had nookie ban – I punched harder as women weaken legs’
Carl 'The Cobra' Froch has revealed he put in place a sex ban before his big bouts due to his fear that "women weaken legs".
The former boxer, who is married to brunette stunner Rachael Froch, used to swear off sex prior to any big fight, which would sometimes leave his wife severely frustrated.
And while he has since retired, with his last professional bout seeing him beat George Groves at Wembley back in 2014, it seems as though the reason behind Froch's sex ban stemmed from a line in the first Rocky film.

While training in the ring, Sylvester Stallone's character is approached by some female fans, who want his autograph. However, fictional trainer Mickey Goldmill intervenes, screaming: "Get out of here. Don't you ever interrupt me while I'm conducting business. Move your little chicken asses out.
He then added: "Listen kid, you lay off that pet shop dame. Women weaken legs!"
And it seems as though that line from Rocky's fictional trainer left quite a mark upon Froch, who adopted that mantra before his biggest fights.
The boxer was asked by OLBG: "You openly said you banned sex before fights. Did that make you punch harder?"
To which Froch replied: "Women weaken legs! Old Mickey quote from Rocky and it's true. Well I think so anyway!"
What do you make of Carl Froch's sex ban? Let us know in the comments section below.
Having been with the boxer since 2008, the sex ban would frequently leave then girlfriend, now wife Rachael with plenty of pent up frustrations.
Back in 2014 ahead of Froch's final fight against Groves, she said: "The sex ban is so hard for me – but Carl tells me he isn't that bothered because he's exhausted and it's the last thing on his mind.
"After such a long wait it's really good to have our sex life back to normal and to have that closeness again, to be able to have sex like a normal young couple."
