"We sincerely apologize to all participants. We are who we are. Emotions and tension are off the charts. He was a very disrespectful guy. If you come close to a soldier's entourage, you can get hit. For me, respect for my son is important, and he showed none of it. He mentioned my son, and that's it, so he should have gotten something in return. I'm not worried about the dissection. This is what we live for, we fight people. For me, it's a normal thing," said John Fury.
