Tyson Fury explains why he has husky voice that he hasn't always had

With the release of Netflix's At Home With the Furys, many millions have been given the opportunity to see what happens behind the closed doors of a boxing legend.
But ahead of the release of At Home With the Furys earlier this week, Tyson and Paris had been doing the media rounds to promote the new series.
In fact, Tyson admitted that he had wanted to cancel the series during production and even brought lawyers in to see if that could happen.
But in a separate interview with Hits Radio, Tyson touched upon why he has a husky voice - something we are certainly very familiar with.
However, The Gypsy King has not always had a husky voice, as he explained on the breakfast show with Fleur East, James and Matt.
He said: "I didn't always use to have this voice,", before Paris said he use to have a 'delicate' voice and would even sing high-noted songs.
So, this led to Tyson explaining how exactly he lost his 'delicate' voice.
"This guy called Ty, he punched me in the throat in sparring," Tyson said.
"It ended up getting a blood clot in my throat, and ever since then, I now sound like my dad."
Tyson then made a joke that a lot of people find his voice 'sexy', before immediately looking over to Paris.
In 2021, Tyson spoke about it further on the YouTube series The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, in which he said: "It wasn't always like this though, this isn't my original voice.
"If you go back at look at interviews from like 2010 onwards right up until about 2016, I didn't have this voice.
"One of my good friends, Ty Mitchell. We were sparring and he hit me in the throat real hard and I developed a blood clot in me throat.
"It messed around with my vocal words so this is why I talk like this now."
He continued: ""So it sounds just like my dad. I can even hear it myself, we've both got the husky voice.
"Some would say it's quite sexy, I've been told."
Back in 2019, Tyson admitted to BBC Radio 1 that he actually prefers his husky voice, saying: "I got punched in the throat in 2015 and it left me with a blood clot in the throat. So it causes me to talk like this.
"I was supposed to have it removed and I got too afraid. I think it sounds better anyway, there's more pain in it."
