A source said: “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.”

Fury is now thought to be back at his training camp and is determined to fight Chisora at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
But even without the health scare, it is unlikely Amber would have watched the Gypsy King’s bout.
Fury said: “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.
