Tyson Fury opens up on the mental health challenges he faced during lockdown and when he'll fight again

Tyson Fury said he hopes they will allow crowds in "sooner or later" for his next fight during his appearance on Good Morning Britain.

The scheduled date that fans were supposed to be allowed in was 1 October, but that has been pushed back indefinitely after the latest round of coronavirus restrictions from the government.

Fury has been very public over the years with his mental health challenges and he told Piers and Susanna that training was a lifeline for the difficulties during lockdown.

"I found it challenging to say the least but at least I've had the training in my life to keep me motivated and focused on what I'm about to achieve, when given the chance," he said.

"I train twice a day, mostly for me, 99% of that for me, to keep my mental health on a straight and narrow path.

"It's been challenging but I am getting through it and I'm looking forward to when it all goes back to what we used to think was normal at one stage in our lives."

Fury and his promoter Frank Warren also touched on when the boxer could be back in the ring.

Asked if Fury could fight without a crowd, Warren confessed: “No… we can’t lose that gate money.”
