Tyson Fury’s voice wildly changed after he was “punched in the throat” six years ago.
The Gypsy King has a very distinct voice but he claims that it was not always like that – in fact, it is was down to being hit in his voicebox in 2015 which changed it.
Footage of an interview with the boxer in a Carl Froch vs Jean Pascal undercard shows that his voice is far different than what it is today.
And the Manchester-born fighter claims this is down to being hit during a sparring session.
During an interview with BBC Radio 1 last year he said: "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."
‘I’ve been to the hospital I’ve had the camera down me old throat and I’ve got a blood clot in the back of the throat, not a serious one that can harm me because it can only go down into the stomach sooner or later.
‘I’m not in any rush – it’s not causing me any pain, the sexy voice will not last forever.’
The incident in question was during a sparring session with light heavyweight boxer Ty Mitchell back in 2015, according to Sportbible.
The 33-year-old has just come off the back of a tremendous win over Deontay Wilder.
Fury delivered a breathtaking 11th-round knockout and retained his WBC heavyweight crown at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
