Tommy Fury answered Jake Paul’s recent call out over their planned boxing match. Paul said that everything was a done deal and that Tommy only needed to sign the contracts to make the fight official. Tommy finally did just that, but after several fits and starts, the fight is once again in jeopardy.

Fury made a post on his Instagram Story stating that he was told that his entry to the United States has been denied by Homeland Security. Fury was on his way to New York ahead of a scheduled press conference to promote his match with Jake Paul. Tommy Fury seems confused by the ordeal.

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

I’ve been training for a fight this whole time and that’s all I’ve been doing. I have no clue why I’m not allowed to travel and neither does my team or my lawyers.

Now I’ve got to go to the embassy trying to resolve it and I’m in the middle of training. I don’t know why this has happened a huge shock to me and my team.”

The fight is scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden on August 6. Tommy Fury thinks the travel issues he is facing may put a stop to it. Jake Paul hasn’t reacted yet, but he is sure to be irate over the news.
