Boxer Juan Manuel Marquez Drinks His Own Urine [Video]
Total Pro Sports – He may not eat your children, a la Mike Tyson, but Juan Manuel Marquez is prepared to do just about anything to win, and that includes drinking his own urine.
With his much anticipated bout versus Floyd Mayweather Jr. scheduled for September 19th, HBO’s 24/7 caught up with the Mexican lightweight and found out an interesting bit of information regarding his pre-fight preparations. Rather than settle for water, or even a refreshing bottle of Michael Jordan’s limited edition Gatorade, Marquez prefers to drink his piss.
Why you ask?
I think that this has helped me. I’ve done it for the last five or six fights with good results.
I also drink my urine because that’s where a lot of protein and vitamins are, part of your vitamin intake, and why not drink them again instead of wasting them.
I can not say for sure whether this has been scientifically proven to work, but if Marquez believes he is winning because of it, then by all means drink away. If there is one thing that holds true within the sporting world, it is that a winning formula should not be tampered with, even when it involves the ingesting of bodily fluids.
