Jake Paul says he is ‘moving on’ from his fight against Tommy Fury after he was denied access to the US and claims his rival has shown ‘no urgency’ to solve the issue after calling his lawyers – as he accuses him of ‘HIDING’

  • Tommy Fury revealed this week that he was denied entry into the United States
  • He was set to have a press conference with Jake Paul ahead of their August bout
  • Fury said he had ‘no idea’ why he was denied access into the United States
  • Paul has since taken to social media to hit out at Fury with the fight in doubt
  • He has tweeted that he is moving on from the scheduled bout with Fury
  • Paul says Fury has shown ‘no urgency’ to try and make the clash happen 

Jake Paul has insisted that he’s ‘moving on’ from Tommy Fury after their fight was thrown into doubt after the Brit was denied access into the United States.

Fury was set to fly to the United States earlier this week to promote their fight at Madison Square Garden, which is scheduled for August 6.

The younger half-brother of Tyson was unable to make the flight, and Paul has again called out Tommy on Thursday suggesting that he is ‘hiding’.

YouTuber turned boxer Paul, tweeted: ‘Tommy Fury is hiding. Bitch made.

‘Tyson Fury lawyer never got back to my team on setting up escrow for our $1M bet.

‘Never believed in his brother. Instructed my team to do a Hova (Jay-Z) and move On To The Next One.’

In a video posted on Wednesday, Paul said: ‘We have spoken to Tommy Fury’s lawyers, they’re all advising him to just go to the embassy to get his visa.

‘That’s all he has to do. But Tommy is showing no urgency, he hasn’t gone yet, he’s not communicating with us on what he’s doing.

‘This is another case of Tommy Fumbles just being scared to fight me. I think that’s what this is. I think the Fury family’s trying to manipulate something to get me to fight in the UK.

‘You want me to fight in the UK? Show me $15million. Because, here in America, we do more PPV buys, more ticket sales and more sponsorships.

‘I’ve shown you the money, we’re ready to go. MSG, August 6th. Tommy, you’re going to miss the biggest pay day of your life because you want me to go to the UK?

‘I’ll come there just show me the money but you can’t do that. This is embarrassing. Go to the embassy, get your visa, stop ducking me and stop wasting my time.’

Fury was due to fight Paul last year before pulling out with a broken rib and chest infection

Paul’s comments throw the fight under more doubt, after the fight had originally been postponed in December, as Fury had to pull out with a broken rib and chest infection.

In Fury’s video posted on Tuesday, a day after he was denied access to the US, he said: ‘Me and my team arrived at Heathrow Airport ready for the press conference, ready to fly out.

‘And as soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side and I was told by the Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA had been denied and I wasn’t able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know. 

‘I can stand here and I say I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong and I have no clue why I’m not allowed to travel to the USA.’

He added: ‘I have no clue why they would not allow me to travel today and neither does any of my team or my laywers.

‘So now I’m having to go to them trying to resolve it, and I’m in the middle of training.

‘I don’t know why this is happening today, it’s a massive shock to me and my whole team.

‘Obviously it is a matter that needs to be resolved. It’s government issues, it’s a lot bigger than the fight right now and I’m just trying to get it sorted.’

It was reported earlier this month that his half-brother Tyson had also been denied access to the US over alleged links to crime boss Daniel Kinahan.

Addressing claims that Irish boxing promoter Kinahan runs a global organised crime group, Fury has previously stated said: ‘That’s none of my business and I don’t interfere with anybody else’s business.’

Kinahan has advised Tyson Fury in the past, but Fury has not been accused of criminal activity.
