Following his victory over Sam Peter for the heavyweight title this weekend, Vitali Klitschko did what any boxer would do: he soaked his hands in his three-year-old son’s used diapers.  According to Klitschko, it helps reduce swelling.

“Baby wee is good because it’s pure, doesn’t contain toxins and doesn’t smell,” the 37-year old boxer told Bild after he won back the WBC title on Saturday.

“I wrap nappies filled with my three-year-old son Max’s wee around my fists,” he said, adding he got the idea from his grandmother. “The nappies hold the liquid and the swelling stays down.”

That’s sound reasoning.  Because whenever I think of something pure, odorless, and toxin-free to help reduce swelling, I immediately think “used diapers.”  Definitely not ice.
