During the interview, Rudy, who was also Mike‘s chauffer in the ’80s, said the star had to “loosen up” before his boxing matches because he was filled with so much adrenaline, he feared he would kill his opponents.

“One of the greatest secrets with Mike was that he needed to have sex in the dressing room before fights,” he said.

“He had to get laid to disengage some of the strength he had. So I had girls tucked away in bathrooms and changing rooms,” he continued.

Mike would say, ‘If I do not get laid, I will kill this guy right now.’ Sometimes he’d go in with them [the women] for a minute, bang the s–t out of them, snap his neck and say: ‘OK, this guy is going to live tonight,’” he said.

“It is no exaggeration to say Mike was like a train hitting these guys. Having sex was his way of disengaging that power and loosening up a bit.”

He also claimed that sometimes Mike would burst into tears.

“He had an anxiety problem where he would be in despair with anxiety of not feeling good enough or not wanting to screw it up…Mike had the fear that if he screwed this up, he would end up back in his old neighborhood or be locked up.”
