Jake Paul has been adamant that he’ll return to boxing come August – but what’s been up in the air is his next opponent. Just as the match up against Tommy Fury was announced it spontaneously combusted with Fury being unable to travel thanks to his big brother’s shenanigan with Kinehan cartel associations.
‘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.’
As for Fury – he seemed more down to Earth and unsure what’s next considering he was denied a boarding pass a week after his brother was twice denied a boarding pass.
‘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’s unclear who is the best choice to replace Fury although there are several names in the mix.
