The former professional boxer has chronicled his life in an autobiography called When Fury Takes Over where he recounts several interesting anecdotes about his son.
As reported by The Sun, Fury goes into detail about the birth of Tyson, claiming that it was something that he will never forget.

The doctors said he wouldnt make it, but I saw something completely different a little warrior with a glint in his eye and his fist held up, as if he was ready to take on the world.
