Power of Pee Keeps Klitschko's Fists Pounding
Medical practitioners of both the holistic and traditional varieties have long used urine for treatment purposes, but boxer Vitali Klitschko may have devised a brand new therapy with the help of his son's wet diapers.
While treatments with names like "the urine cure" and "urine therapy" tout the liquid's cleansing characteristics -- with some even praising it as a cure for nearly every malady -- Ukrainian boxer Vitali Klitschko had practical demands for the waste product.
He used his son's wet diapers to help keep his fists from swelling up after winning his WBC heavyweight title match against Nigeria's Samuel Peter, Klitschko told German mass-market daily Bild on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
"Baby wee is good because it's pure, doesn't contain toxins and doesn't smell," the 37-year-old boxer told the paper after winning the title bout on Saturday.
