Why Tyson Fury's 'loaded gun' WON'T help him in Derek Chisora fight


Tyson Fury raised eyebrows when he revealed he will have a ‘loaded gun’ when he fights Derek Chisora on Saturday night.

But a urologist has now poured scorn on the Gypsy King’s celibacy tactic, saying it won’t have any ‘meaningful impact’ on his performance.

Fury, who will defend his WBC heavyweight belt at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, claimed he has now abstained from all sexual activity for seven weeks so he can be ‘testosteroned out of my head completely’.

However, urologist and sexual medicine specialist Dr Ashley Winter took issue with the controversial star’s claim.

WHAT IS SEMEN RETENTION? 

Semen retention has been practiced since ancient times, and is a key principle of Taoism — a Chinese philosophy dating back to the 4th century BC.

It claims the keeping semen in the body maintains energy reserves, while ‘wasting’ semen weakens it.

But this has been branded ‘medical nonsense’ by doctors, with no evidence that semen retention triggers any benefits.

In fact, regular ejaculation has been linked to better health — including a lower risk of prostate cancer and early death.

Any reported benefits — which advocates say range from increased productivity to less bloating — are only anecdotal.

It is thought to have sparked ‘No Nut November’ — an internet trend that started more than a decade ago and sees participants avoid masturbation and sex for the month. 

Dr Winter, chief medical officer of Odela — an online sexual health clinic, wrote on Twitter: ‘SEMEN RETENTION IS NOT A PERFORMANCE ENHANCER FOR GOD SAKES.’

She said: ‘Urologist here. 

‘If you don’t ejaculate for seven weeks you will either 1) ejaculate in your sleep or 2) reabsorb the fluids. 

‘You do not aggregate seven weeks worth of ejaculate in some sort of holding chamber. 

‘Second, your testosterone will not be changed in any meaningful way.’

People on Twitter were quick to react to Dr Winter’s response, with one person saying: ‘I just couldn’t help but laugh at “holding chamber”.’

Another said: ‘Otherwise every Monk would be built like Arnold Schwarzenegger, well the good ones.’

While another added: ‘You gotta admit, people’s cartoon-ish beliefs are sorta fun though… the imagery of a 7-week “swell” is comical [laughing-face emoji].’

The response came after Fury, 34, told Barstool Sports he ‘used to masturbate seven times per day to give me power’. 

But the boxer said this time, as part of a ‘new method’ he was trying out, he will have been ‘celibate’ for the seven weeks leading up to the fight.

Fury said: ‘I’m going in there with a loaded gun, someone’s getting in severe trouble.

‘I’m gonna be testosteroned out of my head completely. Seven weeks’ worth.’

NoFap, a community-based porn recovery website, was founded after a 2003 study discovered men who don’t masturbate for seven days have higher levels of testosterone.

The group claims abstaining from ejaculating leads to ‘dramatic increases in social confidence, energy levels, concentration levels, mental acuity, motivation, self-esteem, emotional stability, happiness, sexual prowess, and attractiveness to the opposite sex.’ 

But it was reported in 2016 that the evidence was scarce and testosterone can be affected by several factors, such as age, time of day, and physical activity.

It was concluded that masturbation does not have negative effects on hormone levels.
