Tyson Fury is going to great lengths to capture the WBC heavyweight title from Deontay Wilder when the pair meet in their rematch – even claiming he’s “keeping the testosterone flowing” by masturbating seven times a day.

Fury, who is firm 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 liters 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 keep active and the testosterone flowing for the fight. Don’t want the levels to go down.”

Neither Fury nor Wilder has ever lost in their professional careers and the Brit has promised to knock Wilder out in the second round of their upcoming bout.

Lineal world heavyweight champion Fury faces undefeated WBC king Wilder at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on February 22.
