Tyson Fury reveals he’s cut out sex ahead of his showdown with Deontay Wilder

‘My trousers are staying zipped up’: Tyson Fury reveals he’s cut out sex and masturbation while preparing for his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder – as he plans to ‘let all the aggression burst out on my opponent’

  • Tyson Fury says he has deprived himself of sex ahead of his fight this weekend 
  • Fury, 33, takes on arch rival Deontay Wilder, 35, in Las Vegas for a third time 
  • The Gypsy King’s wife, Paris, is in Morecombe after giving birth to a sixth child
  • He previously said he was masturbating ‘seven times a day’ but has cut that out 
  • Fury says Wilder will fall victim to his ‘pent up aggression’ on Saturday night 


So aware is Tyson Fury of the threat from Deontay Wilder’s phenomenal one-punch power that he is depriving himself of many of his basic delights prior to Saturday night’s trilogy world title fight here.

Not just cutting out the beers, the junk food and the nights out but also but also the primal instinct for sex.

Fury’s devoted wife Paris is back home in Morecambe recovering from the delivery of their sixth child and the trauma of almost losing that daughter at birth.

‘Of course,’ says her heavyweight champion husband. ‘That means no sex during training camp.’

Nor, he reveals, is this giant who once talked before a previous fight about ‘relieving myself seven times a day’ indulging in pleasuring himself.

Before his second fight with Wilder in February 2020, Fury said he was masturbating seven times a day to ‘keep testosterone pumping’ and claimed ‘I’ve been doing a lot of p***y-licking’ in a bid to strengthen his jaw. 

‘Can’t even remember the last time I did that,’ the frank Fury tells the world. ‘My trousers are staying zipped up here. The idea that no fighters have sex before a fight is a myth. But I don’t believe in it. I’m an old school fighter. I like to keep nice and strong. Keep all that pent up energy in the tank and then let all the aggression burst out on my opponent on fight night.

‘I’ve left nothing to chance against Wilder. Trained my guts out. People have been calling him a bum since I beat him but he is still my most dangerous fight with that punching power. And of all the fights I’ve ever had – even Wladimir Klitschko to win my world titles – this one is the one I want to win the most. This one.’

Fury is nursing an extra incentive to inflict that latent explosion on Wilder, who has stayed virtually silent through the 20 months since Fury knocked him out in their first rematch, instead of helping to sell the show in the T Mobile Arena.

‘I’m out here this week doing my job advertising the fight, unlike my counterpart at the top of the bill. If Deontay is not going to do his media work then he should lose money. If Bob (promoter Bob Arum) won’t cut his wages then I’m going to cut him down by taking it out on his face.’

Fury has been more sympathetic than many in boxing about Anthony Joshua’s enfeebled loss of the other world heavyweight belts to Oleksandr Usyk which has hit both big Brits in the pocket, saying: ‘I don’t kick people when they’re down, to make them more depressed. I have a go at the high and mighty.’

But now, with the long awaited and lucrative Fury-AJ fight out of the window for at least one year, the Gypsy King reflects: ‘I have to say if it was me who had lost to a cruiserweight I would have been getting kicked in the b******* left right and centre.

‘I’d have been written off. I don’t stick knives in to make someone feel worse. I kick the high flyers. Joshua’s business is his business and he couldn’t take care of that piece of business. Then again in this game the landscape changes suddenly all the time.

‘Klitschko was called one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and they picked me as an easy fight. Then I beat him and they said he was crap. Wilder is known to be one of the deadliest punchers ever but when I beat him they said he was a bum who can’t box. But he’s still a man who can knock anyone out with half a punch.

‘The landscape has changed again with Joshua. Can our fight still be a huge fight? Well, the problem is that this is not just one loss but two out of four fights.. Now he’s been knocked out (by Andy Ruiz Jr) and he’s been beat on points by a cruiserweight.

‘On the other hand people will still want to see what the Gypsy King is going to do next in these big fights. It’s the Tyson Fury Roadshow now. So I’ve no interest in Anthony Joshua or any other heavyweight. Because I’ve got Wilder to care about.

‘I never underestimate anyone and especially him. He knocked me down in our first fight so I know all about his power. He’s knocked out all his other opponents but with me the difference is that he’s not been able to handle is that I’m the one who got up.

‘We’ll see Saturday night whether he can deal with losing for the first time. There’s all this talk of this being a trilogy fight but for me this is the ongoing fight with a man I’ve already done 19 rounds with. So this is round 20. Of the 19 rounds so far he’s only won two of them in my book.

‘But he’s still the most dangerous opponent out there for any heavyweight. The man who can knock out anyone with one punch. In a split second.’

Fury v Wilder will be televised live on BT Sport Box Office late this Saturday night.
