Tyson Fury is preparing for his rematch with Deontay Wilder in an extraordinary way. The Gypsy King challenges Wilder for his WBC title in Las Vegas on February 22 after their first match ended in a draw in December 2018.
“I was speaking to an old legendary bare-knuckle fighter from the travelling community, he’s called Big Joe Joyce. He told me about dipping his hands in petrol to toughen them up”, says Fury.
“So for this fight I’ll be dipping my hands in petrol for five minutes a day during the last three or four weeks of the training camp to really toughen them up. It worked for him, so I’m going to give it a try.”
Fury has vowed to beat Wilder in just two rounds at the MGM Grand.
