Boxing Champ Vitali Klitschko Uses His Son's Wet Diapers to Reduce Hand Swelling
Current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has revealed his unusual way of recovering from his recent title fight against Samuel Peter: the champ used his son's used diapers to keep his fists from swelling up.
"Baby wee is good because it's pure, doesn't contain toxins and doesn't smell," the 37-year old boxer told Bild after he won back the WBC title with a technical knockout on Saturday.
Klitschko claims he got the idea from his grandmother.
And the boxer, nicknamed Dr Iron Fist and a keen chess player with a Ph.D in philosophy of sports science, added: "I wrap nappies filled with my three-year-old son Max's wee around my fists.
"The nappies hold the liquid and the swelling stays down."
Klitschko's hands beame so sore after defending his title against Peter, soundly beating the Nigerian heavyweight in eight rounds. It was Klitschko's first fight in nearly four years.
