Larry Holmes has told Anthony Joshua that regular sex could be the key to following in his footsteps as a heavy weight icon.
Holmes, 67, is widely considered as a legend of the division having won world heavyweight titles during a memorable career which began in 1973 and ended in 2002.
He beat the likes of Ken Norton and Earnie Shavers while also becoming the only man in history to stop Mohammed Ali on an infamous night in Las Vegas in 1980.
“If I had to give him one piece of advice, it would be this get, laid a week before each fight,” Holmes said. “You need to relax. It restores your energy and everything. You know they say you re not allowed to do that when you ‘re fighting.
“I listened to that for a while but then found out it was all a lie and you are missing the good stuff man. He is a heavyweight, he’s got to get that sh**t out of him. But he doesnt want to do it everyday or nothing because that might drain him.”
