Tyson Fury has cast doubt over his undisputed bout with Anthony Joshua as he claims he's not training and drinking 12 pints a day.
The Gypsy King has not fought since stopping Deontay Wilder over a year ago.
Many hope his next opponent will be Joshua, who knocked out Kubrat Pulev back in December.
There is a huge clamour to see the two Brits go at it in the ring and their respective promoters Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn are looking to thrash out a deal.
But boxing is the last thing on Fury's mind with the 32-year-old labelling himself "a man of leisure".
“I have stopped training at the moment, I am on holiday," he told IFL.
“I am drinking anything between eight, ten, 12 pints of lager a day, at the minute.
“But I am not eating so I am getting my calories through alcohol.
“I have trained and trained and trained with no progress so I am now a man of leisure.”
Fury admits he does see himself fighting Joshua at some point, but that is not "imminent".
Saudi Arabia, the scene of Joshua's win over Andy Ruiz Jr, has been shortlisted as a possible venue but Hearn has also teased the prospect of it happening at Wembley.
Fury didn't seem convinced that the fight would be going ahead this summer though insisting he wasn't "holding his breath".
He added: “Whatever they say is very unimportant to me because, until I have a fight date and a hell-of-a-lot of money in my pocket, there is no fight.
“Will I be fighting Joshua in the next ten minutes? No. Do I think the fight will eventually happen? Yes, it has to happen. Do I think it is next or imminent? No.
“I am not going to hold my breath for it, that’s for sure.
“I am not going to put all my eggs in one basket because I have been guilty of doing that before and, when the fight doesn’t happen, that is when I end up in a massive depression and feel like killing myself.
"I am not going to say ‘it is definitely happening in June or July’”.
