Jake Paul offers Tommy Fury $500k for a boxing match in UK

The boxing match between YouTuber Jake Paul and Love Island star Tommy Fury was canceled for the second time. This time, it’s because Fury was barred from entering the US for his brother’s ties with crime lord Daniel Kinahan.

Paul initially offered Fury a chance to solve his issues. However, the brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury failed to clear the issues by the deadline.

On his social media account, Fury announced the news.

“I’m gutted and disappointed in regards to the issues I have faced with entry into the USA. This is something that myself or my team could have never anticipated happening. “

“This situation has been left with my lawyers as being denied entry to a country is obviously a very serious issue and it needs to subsequently be resolved.”

“I am confident this fight will happen when this issue gets resolved and we come to a solution. I want to clarify that I will fight in a neutral country that both parties can enter. This can be any time, any place, any where.”

Reacting to the announcement, Paul quoted Fury and wrote a skeptical tweet. He also challenged Fury to fight in his home country for a big amount of money.

“I’m confident you are a scared little boy who doesn’t want to fight or understand business. I will pay you $500K to fight me in the UK. I will do it shortly after August 6. You accept?”

Following Fury’s entry denial, Paul and his team terminated their contract and called off the fight. In a statement, Paul called out his British rival for pulled out of fight for the second time.

“Fury’s received a termination notice.”

“MVP did everything it could 2 help him & team. He wasn’t interested & he literally went into hiding.”

“2nd time in a row he has pulled out.”

“2nd time in a row I’m going to step up & take on a new opponent on short notice. AUG 6. MSG.”

He is now reportedly in final stages of contract negotiations to face a 12-1 pro boxer and his former sparring partner Hasim Rahman Jr.
