The lineal heavyweight champion sat down with reporters ahead his ring return and casually admitted that he sank several pints before his world title bout in 2018.

"I drink beer while I'm at training camp, I had four pints of beer before the Wilder fight - the night before, didn't do me any harm did it," he explained.

"I'm a man 30-year-old, I've been a professional for 11 years, I'm married with five children, if I want some f***ing beers I'll have some.

"If the body craves something - give it to it. Why deprive yourself just because it's fight week.

"Fighters from the past used to drink a bottle of whisky before going in the ring. It didn't hurt them did it, have a shot of whiskey. Years ago, people used to have a shot of whisky in the corner.

"The thing is, if you can fight, there is no set way in what you should do."

Fury's trainer Ben Davison confirmed the story was true and explained how the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' fooled him into thinking they were non-alcoholic drinks.

"He's not lying, when I come down I was like 'what the f*** is this,' and he [Fury] was like, 'they're non-alcoholic'," he said.

"I found out two days later that they weren't non-alcoholic."

Of course, Fury fought Wilder to a controversial draw in Los Angeles. He's set to run it back with the undefeated world champion if he beats Otto Wallin on Saturday.

The 31-year-old faces the unheralded Swede in Las Vegas, while Wilder's slated to defend his WBC title against Luis Ortiz in November.

Wilder and Fury will rematch in early 2020 if both fighters are victorious in their respective bouts.
