- The boxer rushed to Manchester to visit his mother in hospital
- On December 3 he will take on Derek Chisora for their trilogy boxing match
Tyson Fury has been forced to miss training ahead of his fight with Derek Chisora after rushing to the aide of his ill mother.
The boxer, 34, is gearing up for his trilogy fight with Derek, 38, on December 3, but left his gym in Lancaster to be by his mother’s side in Manchester.
Despite missing training, Tyson is said to be determined to win his upcoming fight.
A source told The Sun: ‘Tyson was really worried when he heard his mum wasn’t well. They’re really close and he just wanted to be with her.
‘It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind but he’s determined he’ll be able to fight next week. After making sure she’s OK, he will return to training as soon as possible.
‘His fans mean everything to him and he doesn’t want to let them down.’
MailOnline has contacted Tyson’s representatives for comment.
In his autobiography, Tyson revealed that his mother doesn’t watch his fights and could not understand why he was being stopped by fans in the street.
He wrote: ‘To be honest, my mum doesn’t fully understand what I have achieved as a boxer.
‘I took her out shopping one time after the Wilder fight and I was being stopped for photographs and autographs everywhere I went in Manchester and she couldn’t understand it. She actually said, “Hey, son, how do you know so many people?”
‘I had to explain to her that I was the heavyweight champion of the world and a lot of people had watched me and supported me. That was actually very special.’
Amber has never been to one of her son’s fights, despite raising one of the most talented boxers in history.
He revealed: ‘She has never been to one of my boxing fights, amateur or professional, and never been in the public eye.
‘She’s a private person. I don’t think it means anything to my mum. She doesn’t care if I’m world champion or not, as long as I’m healthy and happy. That is the only thing that means anything to her.
‘She doesn’t want to be anything that she isn’t already and that is what she has been all her life and brought up to be.’
