Tyson Fury’s voice was completely different before his throat was permanently damaged from a punch and it sounds very weird to hear.

Fury is well known for his iconic voice as he’s trash-talked his way to the top of the heavyweight division, capturing the WBC title.

But if you haven’t followed his career from an early stage, then you might not know about his speaking voice when he was a budding prospect.

Ahead of making his professional debut on the undercard of Carl Froch vs. Jean Pascal in 2008, Fury spoke at a press conference, revealing a totally different voice to now.

These days the self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ speaks with a raspy, husky tone due to a direct result of being punched in the throat during a sparring session with light-heavyweight fighter Ty Mitchell back in 2015.

He explained his voice change during an interview on The MMA Hour.

“It wasn’t always like this though, this isn’t my original voice,” he told Ariel Helwani.

“If you go back and 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 my throat.

“It messed around with my vocal words so this is why I talk like this now… Some would say it’s quite sexy, I’ve been told.”

Fury’s whole look and voice has completely changed since 2008, but he’s become famed for his new style.
