Jake Paul has revealed he abstains from having sex before fights - and even sparring - as it affects his performance in between the ropes.
The 'Problem Child' squares off against Tyron Woodley for a second time this weekend, after Tommy Fury pulled out of the main event fight due to a bacterial chest infection and broken rib.
Paul beat the former UFC welterweight champion in an eight rounder via split decision in August and has vowed to stop Woodley this time around.

The 24-year-old has been racking up the rounds in sparring but has detailed the impact his sex life has on his work inside the squared circle.
Paul says his coaches know exactly when he has been engaging in sexual activity with on-and-off other half Julia Rose.
"It's different for each fighter," Paul explained on In Depth with Graham Bensinger.
"A lot of fighters are affected by it, including myself and I'm 100% sure [it's not all mental], I don't believe in placebo, I have to experience things for myself.
"I've only messed up on occasion once or twice because it's noticeably different, and I take more punishment in sparring if I do that.
"My coach BJ [Flores] will be like 'did you have sex last night?' And you can just tell without me saying anything."
Paul is now 4-0 in professional boxing and has ended up becoming one of the biggest names in the sport at present after transitioning from YouTube.
As well as Woodley, his past victims include former UFC star Ben Askren and NBA player Nate Robinson - both of which he knocked out.
But his coach Flores, who fought Tony Bellew for the WBC Cruiserweight title in 2016, believes Paul becomes "slower" after sex and has therefore introduced an intercourse ban in his camp.
"He's not as good, he's not as quick or as fierce or aggressive," Flores added.
"It's obvious to a guy who has been around boxing for 33 years so I see it very quickly and he always comes clean.
"Ancient warriors deprived themselves of certain things before they went to battle and it's important that Jake sacrifices and deprives himself of certain things before he goes into battle.
"If not having sex for a little while will make us half a per cent better, then I'll take it."
Paul's girlfriend Rose is a model and actress who went viral when she and two other fellow models flashed at the 2019 world series.
She has 700,000 Instagram followers and was once banned from the platform.
Paul, meanwhile, has included a $500,000 knockout bonus clause in the contract for Woodley, who said, "You don’t put a bounty on your own f*cking head" in response.
