Tyson Fury has lifted the lid on a bizarre, and rather intimate, training method he’s employing ahead of his rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The ‘Gypsy King’ will fight WBC heavyweight champ Wilder on February 22 in Las Vegas.
Wilder and Fury’s first fight was historic – and they’ll do it all again on February 22
Their first bout in December 2018 ended in a draw and Frank Warren recently told talkSPORT a third Wilder vs Fury fight will happen this summer.
Fury, who is firmly of the view he won the first fight, is in the middle of his intense training schedule ahead of the rematch.
And he told reporters that he has been masturbating SEVEN times a day in preparation – no doubt in a bid to get the ‘upper hand’ over the American.
Speaking after the first press conference concluded ahead of the big fight, the 31-year-old said: “I’m doing a lot of things I didn’t before.

“I’m eating five/six meals a day, drinking eight litres of water. If it’s gonna give me an edge, I’m willing to try it.
“I’m masturbating seven times a day to keep my testosterone pumping.”
Fury then quoted lines from the 2004 hit song by Danzel, titled Pump It Up.
He added: “Pump it, pump it, pump it, pump it up! Dontcha know!
“I gotta to keep active and the testosterone flowing for the fight. Don’t want the levels to go down.”
Neither Fury nor Wilder have ever lost in their professional careers and the Brit has promised to knock Wilder out in the second round of their upcoming bout.
