Fury has come down to Los Angeles from his altitude training at Big Bear mountain but is still eschew the temptations of the city life.
The health reasons for which have nothing to do with his communion with his lovely wife Paris, the mother of his two children.

‘It is rare that you have two giants of 6ft 9in in my case and Wilder at 6ft 7in getting ready to punch each other in the face,’ said Fury.
‘At some point we are going to hit each other but I am blessed with this sixth sense for seeing danger coming.
‘I don’t want anything to interfere with that between men with our power there is always the danger of brain damage.
‘So no, there has been no sex for 12 weeks.’
Fury has dealt with psychological demons in overcoming the chronic depression which lead to drug abuse. He credits ‘the therapeutic benefits of training’.
He said: ‘I have defied the odds just being here. So I have no interest in the bookies quoting the odds against me.’

And he sees the only sin pertaining to the fight for Wilder’s WBC world championship and his lineal title on December 1 to be if him and Wilder, but also Anthony Joshua, don’t all fight each other.
‘That would be a crime,’ he says. ‘It’s important we all fight each other for it would be a crying shame if that didn’t happen.
‘The winner between me and Deontay will go on to whatever, the loser must head off to rebuild. But what the fans want to see is the three of us getting it on.’
Although not all the tickets have been sold for the Staples Center in LA – ‘If this was in Manchester we could have filled a football ground with 75,000 people’ – Fury is pleased to be taking his unique and evasive boxing skills to the US.

He says: ‘Beating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany and now coming here I’m becoming the road warrior. When I go jogging loads of people are coming up to me. They are fascinated about a fight between an American with dynamite power and me with my boxing skills.
‘But of course the real difference is that I am very good looking and he is not.
‘The moment will come on December 1 when we have to trade heavy blows and we will then see who can take the big punches and who can knock the other out.
‘But when is all said and done this is sport, just a fight. I don’t know Deontay yet as a man but I’ll take him for a beer when it’s over, win or lose.’
Wilder vs Fury will be televised live late on Saturday night December 1 on BT Sport Box Office.
