Jake Paul says he’ll ‘pass’ Tommy Fury fight as he claims rival is ‘hiding’ and blasting Tyson Fury for over $1million bet


Jake Paul has revealed he has now told his team to ‘move on’ after his fight with Tommy Fury was thrown into major doubt.

The Briton was denied entry to the United States on Monday as he tried to fly out to attend the duo’s first press conference for the August 6 fight.

Tommy filmed a video late Monday night (posted Tuesday) explaining that it didn’t go to plan.

Tommy said: “[I wanted to] come here and set the record straight before someone else tries to.

“My team and I arrived at Heathrow airport this morning ready for the press conference, ready to take off.

“And as soon as I walked into the airport I was pulled to one side and the Homeland Security agent who was there told me that my ESTA had been denied and I was not in able to travel to the United States for some reason that I apparently know about.

“I can stay here and say I did absolutely nothing wrong and I have no idea why I’m not allowed to travel to the United States.

“I’ve been training for one fight all this time and that’s all I’ve done.

“I have no idea why they wouldn’t allow me to travel today and neither would any of my team or my lawyers.

“So now I have to go to them to try to solve it, and I’m in full training.

“I don’t know why this is happening today, it’s a huge shock for me and my whole team.

“Obviously this is a matter that needs to be resolved.

“It’s government issues, it’s much bigger than the fight right now and I’m just trying to sort it out.”

In the days that followed, Jake urged Tommy to go to the US Embassy in the UK to rectify the problem.

On Thursday, however, he indicated that he would now move on.

Jake tweeted: “Tommy Fury is hiding. B***h done.

“Tyson Fury’s attorney never responded to my team about setting up an escrow for our $1 million bet.

“I never believed in his brother. I asked my team to do a Hova and move on to the next one.
