Tyson Fury Refuses To Drink Water After Seeing Who It Came From
Tyson Fury refused to take a bottle of water from a spectator on Saturday night - with many fans thinking he was worried the drink could be spiked.
'The Gypsy King' fielded questions following his seventh round TKO victory over Deontay Wilder last night.
A spectator attempted to give Fury a bottle of water but when the 31-year-old found out who it was coming from, he refused.
Fans on social media suspected that the Brit didn't want to risk being spiked ahead of a post-fight drug test.
Fury's former trainer Ben Davison retweeted the clip which indicates there is some thought behind the gesture.
Smart move by Tyson, never know!

He was the same with Klitschko fight.
Took crates of his own water and kept it under someone's eye.
He must know it's happened. The cheating on boxing is unreal so it wouldn't surprise me. Look at the extra layer the Klitschko's tried to put on the ring

It's similar to the move that Fury made following his victory over Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015.
Fury admitted he was paranoid about taking water that night and said he wouldn't unless it was 'sealed and contained from my own baggage'.
"I had good information from good resources not to touch anything in the changing rooms because they might try and drug you," he claimed per The Mirror.
"Someone tried to pass me water, and unless it was sealed and contained from my own baggage, there was no chance.
"I went home dehydrated before I even touched anything. I was so frightened of being drug tested and failing the drugs test. I didn't want to take drinks or food from anyone."
It shows how serious Fury is when it comes to the intricacies of preparing for a fight as well as recovering from one.
