World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is all smiles at the recent masturbation claim by his upcoming opponent, Tyson Fury.
Wilder will defend his title against Fury on February 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The first bout took place in December 2018, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, with the contest ending in a twelve round split draw.
During a recent media scrum, Fury claimed that he was masturbating seven times a day to prepare for the rematch.
"I'm masturbating seven times a day to keep my testosterone pumping. 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," Fury said.
Wilder believes Fury is just making statements for shock value - something Fury known to do. UFC superstar Conor McGregor recently came out and denied Fury's claim that McGregor offered his services as an MMA trainer. In fact, McGregor claims that he's never had a single conversation with Fury.
But, if Fury is actually serious about his masturbation claim, Wilder is hoping that he does it right.
"I mean, enjoy yourself," Wilder said to TMZ Sports. "Just use the proper lotion!
"Whatever he says is for entertainment or whatever... He wanna jack off? Enjoy himself! Just use the proper lotion. I mean some like thick lotion."
Fury also vowed to end the fight with a second round knockout.
Wilder raised his eyes at that statement. If Fury is actually able to secure a second round knockout, then Wilder will retire from the sport.
"I already have six years left in the sport, but if he gets me out in the second round? Knock me out? I'm done, bro. I'm done. Period," Wilder said.
