In an interview with the IFL TV, Tyson Fury talked about the chaotic situation before his match with Chisora. Fury's mother was in a situation where she had to undergo emergency surgery. Fury got the call and was shocked. "Your life can be turned upside down with one phone call," Fury said for IFL TV.
"I had a phone call the other day while I was in training camp for Chisora. 'We didn't want to tell you but we figured you should know, your mother's had multiple strokes, she's been in hospital for 10 days and she's having a massive operation where there's a 5/1 chance where she could die'
They asked if I want to come and see her before she goes in, I'm a week away from my fight, one week! So I'm like, 'what, why haven't you f***ing told me?' Rushed down to the hospital speak to the doctor, she's got a blood clot in her throat and she's had multiple strokes.
She lost the use of her arms and legs on one side. Doctor said 'we've got to do an emergency operation to remove a blood clot, put a stint in, blood pressure's through the roof, cholesterol is through the roof, heart rate through the roof'
If she don't have the operation? Brown bread. Do have it? Chance that you could die anyway."
Fury emphasized how things can change quickly. Therefore, we should have respect for our loved ones and tell them daily how important they are to us.
"That's the phone call that I'm talking about," he continued. "You're only one phone call away from a disaster, so I'm thankful that she came through, she had the operation she's all good and on the recovery back at home. It's been a wake-up call for her, 60-years-old she needs to be doing more health checks and stuff and look after herself a bit more if she wants to get another ten years out.
Life can change very quickly, everything can go to f*** quite quickly as well. One of your family members, one of your friends, anything [could happen]. You could get diagnosed with a disease, fall over and snap your neck, whatever, there's so many things. Life is like snakes and ladders, take three steps forward and four back."
