Tyson Fury admits drinking a can of FOSTER’S in between rounds during training camp

Deontay Wilder Tyson Fury

By Kenneth Friedman: Tyson Fury has his method for training for his essential fights, and surprisingly drinking beer is something he admits to doing while sparring. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) admits to drinking a can of Foster’s in between rounds in camp in the past.

Interestingly, the WBC heavyweight champion Fury has done as well as he has with his diet and weight problems that he’s experienced in the past.

The overall talent and size of Fury have allowed him to get away with things that a heavyweight without his gifts could.

Fury following in the footsteps of Babe Ruth

You can compare him to Babe Ruth in the same ways. Ruth had a reputation for living it up between games, and yet he was still able to pile up colossal offensive stats during his career in Major League Baseball.

‘Take some fluids on board, take some water, whatever you’ve got,’ Fury said via the Daily Mail. ‘Yeah, why I say, “whatever you’ve got” is because after being around boxing my whole life I’ve seen people drinking some weird stuff during training. ‘Example, full-fat coke. Example, Red Bull, milkshake.

“I’ve even seen someone drinking a can of Foster’s in between rounds. Mention no names – Tyson Fury. Ah, the good old days, eh?

Fury is coming off of a massive seventh-round knockout victory over WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) on November 22 last year. The triumph for Fury makes him a two-time world champion and set him up for a trilogy clash against ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder for later this year in October.

You can imagine the endorsement deals that could be offered to Fury if he were to continue to drink beer during training. You can argue that it might not set the best example for the young fans of the sport of boxing.

Staging Fury-Wilder 3 behind closed doors not possible

It’s still not definite that Fury and Wilder will be fighting in October due to the ongoing global pandemic. With their third fight being such a huge one, they won’t be able to stage it without fans. There will be too much money lost on the gate if Fury vs. Wilder 3 takes place without an audience present.

The only way that fight is given the green light to take place in 2020 will depend on the Nevada State Athletic Commission and the governor. It’s not official that Wilder and Fury will be fighting in Las Vegas, but that’s where it’s believed to be heading.

It’s remarkable the turnaround that Fury had done with his life since returning to boxing in 2018. He was out of the sport from 2015 to 2018 because of his mental health problems.

During Fury’s time round of the ring, his weight shot up to close to 400 pounds, and he looked nothing like the fighter that he had dethroned long-time unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 in Germany.

But somehow he was able to pull it all together and come back in 2018 to fight Wilder to a controversial 12 round draw.

Fury hoping to punch his ticket for the undisputed championship

In his rematch with Wilder last February, Fury stopped him in round seven to capture his WBC heavyweight title. Wilder executed the rematch clause to force the third fight, and they were planning on squaring off in July for the trilogy match. The subsequent global pandemic changed those plans, pushing the Fury-Wilder 3 fight to October.

With a second victory over Wilder next October, Fury will be facing the winner of the Anthony Joshua vs. Kubrat Pulev contest. This will be a clash for the undisputed heavyweight championship with all four belts on the line when Fury faces the Joshua-Pulev winner.
