Talk about a home remedy.
Vitali Klitschko used his son's wet diapers to prevent his fists from swelling after winning his WBC heavyweight title fight against Samuel Peter, the Ukrainian told a German newspaper on Tuesday according to a Reuters report.
"Baby wee is good because it's pure, doesn't contain toxins and doesn't smell," Klitschko said, according to the report.
"I wrap nappies filled with my three-year-old son Max's wee around my fists," he said, noting that he got the idea from his grandmother. "The nappies hold the liquid and the swelling stays down."
[i]Klitschko (36-2, 35 KOs) beat Peter by technical knockout Saturday night. Peter chose not to come back out after eight rounds that saw him weaving and occasionally wobbling as Klitschko landed a persistent stream of heavy jabs to Peter's head in front of more than 12,000 people at the new O2 World Arena.
