Tyson abstained from sex for five years during his rise as a boxing champion because he believed that sex before a fight would make him a weak boxer.

During an interview, Tyson attributed his sexual abstinence to not knowing enough during his younger years. He said that he believed what others had said and chose to stay away from sex. It happened between 1981 and 1986, during the time of his career when he was slugging his way towards becoming a successful boxer.

Jesse Orach (Maine singlet), 23 and a recent UMaine grad, had built a strong lead in the TD Beach to Beacon road race but was struggling to finish and win the Maine Division title.

One of the big reasons that he was kept out of the manager role despite everyone agreeing that he was the best baseball player to ever set foot on the diamond was actually because they were certain that he would bring colored baseball players onto the team. The teams were so afraid of this and the backlash that it would cost them in their fandom and their reputation throughout the rest of the league, which was pretty supremacist at the time, that they decided not to hire him based on that fact alone. There was even a managerial spot open in Cleveland when he retired, but Alva Bradley, the owner of the Cleveland Indians at the time, refused to hire him. It’s not like there wasn’t fresh talent in the black community, because the Negro Leagues had plenty of worthy players who would have excelled in the MLB, but they were kept out systematically until Jackie Robinson in 1947.

    100m list is wrong. Some of those names ran those times after they served suspensions for doping and while they tested clean. Justin Gatlin being one of them.
