TYSON FURY has revealed he sank four pints the NIGHT BEFORE he battled to an epic draw with Deontay Wilder.
The Gypsy King returns to the ring against undefeated Otto Wallin in Las Vegas on Saturday night as heavy favourite to stretch his unbeaten record.
Fury is hoping to set up a rematch with WBC champion Wilder for early next year by overcoming the Swedish Southpaw in Sin City.
But ahead of the fight, the 31-year-old has admitted to enjoying a beer in his training camps.
And he revealed he sunk FOUR just hours prior to stepping in the ring with the Bronze Bomber last December.
Speaking to Seconds Out, Fury said: “I drink beer while I’m at training camp, I had four pints of beer before the Wilder fight – the night before, didn’t do me any harm did it.”
The Brit’s trainer Ben Davison confirmed the story was true.
He said: “He’s not lying, when I come down I was like ‘what the f*** is this,’ and he [Fury] was like, ‘they’re non-alcoholic.’
“I found out two days later that they weren’t non-alcoholic.”
Fury continued: “I’m a man 30-year-old, I’ve been a professional for 11 years, I’m married with five children, if I want some f***ing beers I’ll have some.
“If the body craves something – give it to it. Why deprive yourself just because it’s fight week.
“Fighters from the past used to drink a bottle of whisky before going in the ring. It didn’t hurt them did it, have a shot of whiskey. Years ago, people use to have a shot of whisky in the corner.
“The thing is, if you can fight, there is no set way in what you should do.”
Meanwhile, Wilder has blasted Fury and called him a “f***ing coward” for avoiding an instant rematch with him and instead fighting unknown German Tom Schwarz and Wallin.
Wilder told BoxingScene.com: “If he had the heart of a warrior and a mindset of a warrior and a champion, he would’ve rematched me instantly. Not waited until someone came and saved him, so he can have an excuse to cop out of the rematch.
“He knows he’s not getting $100 million, not even $80m. And it probably ain’t even $70m. His promoter [Arum] even said that himself. So, he wanna run around here like he getting a $100m contract.
“That’s not true, but he wanna use that as a copout to not fight me. That’s a coward. That’s a f***ing coward if I’ve ever seen one.”
