Tommy Fury has revealed that he’s been denied entry to the US for the Jake Paul press conference, putting their fight in major doubt.

In a video uploaded to Instagram Tommy Fury, told fans: “I just want to come on here and set the record straight before anyone else tries to. Me and my team arrived this morning 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 a 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 am not allowed to travel to the USA. Like I say, I’ve been training for a fight this whole time and that’s all I’ve been doing. I have no clue why they would not allow me to travel today. Neither does any of my team, or my lawyers. So now I’m having to go to the Embassies and all this kind of stuff to try and resolve it. And I’m in the middle of training guys. I don’t know why this has happened. This is 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 but I just wanted to let you all know where it was at.”
