Tyson Fury has made a number of changes to his training camp ahead of the Deontay Wilder rematch – including masturbating seven times a day. The Gypsy King is set to go head-to-head with Deontay Wilder on February 22 for the WBC world heavyweight championship.
Fury and Wilder battled to a controversial draw in December 2018 and they will be looking to set the record straight next month.
The pair will clash at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas – if the Wythenshawe-born fighter still has the energy after having so much ‘alone time’.
“I’m doing a lot of things I didn’t before. I’m eating five/six meals a day, drinking eight litres of water,” Fury said.
“If it’s gonna give me an edge, I’m willing to try it. I’m masturbating seven times a day, keep my testosterone pumping.”
One key change Fury has made to his team is axing young coach Ben Davidson, with whom he plotted his comeback from the brink.
The 31-year-old has teamed up with Javan ‘Sugar’ Hill in a tactical overhaul as he hunts a 21st KO of his career.
“I’m not coming here for a points decision, I’ve had too many of them – nine of them – I’m coming here for a knockout, I’ve had 21 of them and from the heart that’s what I’m looking to do,” Fury added.
“This is why I employed Sugar Hill. If I didn’t want a knockout, I wouldn’t have hired a Kronk [the famous Detroit gym] trainer.
“If I didn’t want a knockout, I’d have kept Ben Davison and working on that herky-jerky style.”
Fury and Wilder engaged in a public press conference last night and traded insults throughout.
The Gypsy King was in top form as per usual and he predicted a quick finish to their second bout.
“You are going to sleep in two rounds,” Fury said. “I keep having the same dream about round two.
“I am playing poker and I get dealt the number two card. He is getting knocked out in round two, 100 per cent.
“What is going to happen is that I am going to get what I won last time.
“I am going to get that green belt, I am also going to get the Ring Magazine, and I am also going to keep my lineal championship, too.”
And Wilder replied: “I am prepared more than ever for this fight. I knocked him out the first time. I told Fury two years ago I was going to baptise him and I did just that. Rising up is part of the baptism.
“I told him he was going to go ‘timber’ and he did just that. This time around it is called unfinished business and he won’t be able to get back up. I am going to knock him out.”
