The experts will say that regular masturbation/sex keeps testosterone high and that to drop off for a significant number of days/weeks has no benefit to a fighter whatsoever! Fighters in the past would abstain for an entire training camp. Muhammad Ali used to......and spoke of 'Mother Natures' wet dreams! Abstinance of anything promotes discipline and helps a fighter focus whether it be junk food, alcohol, drugs, cigs or sex!
Others will say that it takes the edge off a tense fighter and is of benefit. What works for someone may not work for another.
Ali apparently had tantric sex in camps too, with loadsa different women 6 times a day. I think it is bull**** and has been overexaggerated. As long as you have no major sex or double wanks 2-3 days before a fight then you are Ok.
