The 20-year-old Hungarian is preparing for his clash with Vijender, who is unbeaten so far -- all his three pro wins coming via knockout.

"There is a long and proud tradition of drinking fresh snake blood in my family that goes back many centuries. Like my forefathers before me I am a true warrior and will stop at nothing to get my victory. Hungarian soldiers drank snake blood to defeat the Turks all those years ago and now I'm drinking it to beat Singh!" said Horvath.

"The blood of these sacred animals makes me powerful beyond words. With snake blood coursing through my veins there in no way that Singh will defeat me. Since I've added snake blood to my diet I have been able to train harder than ever before without tiring and I'm punching harder than ever."

Surprisingly, the Hungarian is not the only person in the world with this unusual dietary choice. US Marines, regarded as some of the toughest soldiers in the world, have been known to drink Cobra blood as part of their gruelling jungle survival training.
There are several snakes indigenous to Hungary but Horvath has acquired a taste for the deadliest of them all the viper.
