The Gypsy King made the surprising emission admission during a Monday interview with Manouk Akopyan , a reporter who covers boxing for the Los Angeles Times. If it gives me an edge on winning this fight, Im willing to try it, Fury said.

What are some other things youre doing to prepare for the fight? Akopyan asked.

To which Fury replied: I'm masturbating seven times a day to keep my testosterone pumping."

And if you thought forearm strength was the goal, well, think again.

"Pump it, pump it, pump it, pump it up!" Fury continued. "Don'tcha know! I gotta keep active and the testosterone flowing for the fight. Don't want the levels to go down."

Watch it here:

Tyson Fury on ways he's preparing for Wilder: "I'm masturbating 7 times a day to keep my testosterone pumping. Pump it, pump it, pump it, pump it up! Dontcha know!

At this point, you may be wondering: Does masturbating a whopping seven times a day actually affect your testosterone (T) levels? (Side note: Does he just shoot blanks at the end? Does he use lube ?) The answer, according to Healthline , is no. Your T levels naturally go up during sex (or masturbation), but they go down again after you orgasm. Masturbating ain't gonna raise your total testosterone reading.

Nevertheless, it seems as if the Gypsy King is truly doing everything possible to get an edge for his upcoming match. Every fight is a big one for Fury at this point in his esteemed career, but this one is particularly huge, since the first time he fought Wilder in December 2018, the match ended in a split decision draw with neither fighter being crowned victor.

This time, Fury is really aiming to win via knockout.

Knockout or go home, he said. If I dont knock him out, it dont count.
