Tyson Fury Explains Husky Voice Is Result Of Sparring Incident

Tyson Fury has explained why he now has a 'husky voice', compared to a soft-spoken tone he once had.

You can hear what he used to sound like in the video below:

It turns out Fury's suffered a throat injury in a sparring match, which altered the way his vocal cords sounds.

Speaking on YouTube series The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, 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.

"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."

Speaking to BBC Radio 1 back in 2019, Fury said he prefers his husky voice.

He explained: "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."

Fury out-boxed Deontay Wilder last night (9 October) to retain his WBC World Heavyweight Title, in one of the best boxing matches in the modern-heavyweight-era.

The Gypsy King finally ended the trilogy in the 11th round of the third fight, stopping Wilder who had been down three times before the ending.

However, it looked like things could be over as early as the third round, when the reigning champion caused the first knockdown of the fight.

But then in the fourth round, things turned on their head, as Wilder scored two knockdowns of his own.

Although, in the final stretch it was only going one way.

A final flourish in the penultimate round left the referee with no choice but to call it off after a brutal right hand left Wilder face down on the mat.

After the fight, the man from Morecambe has since branded the American a 'sore loser'.

Fury said: "I said, 'Well done.' And he said, 'I don't wanna show any sportsmanship or respect.' I said, 'No problem.'

"I was very surprised by that but he's a sore loser, an idiot.

"To be a top fighting man, you've got to show guts and respect and he couldn't do it tonight. And that's it."
