Jake Paul has once again called out Tommy Fury for ducking him in the lead-up to their scheduled boxing match. After backing out in December due to an injury, Fury has claimed that he is unable to get into the United States. With the fight in jeopardy, Paul reached out to Fury’s lawyers for clarification.

Tommy Fury was denied entry into the United States ahead of a scheduled press conference to promote his fight with Jake Paul. The Fury family is allegedly banned from the country due to their ties to an organized crime boss. Paul isn’t buying that excuse at all.

In a fiery video released on Twitter, Jake Paul said he has spoken to Tommy Fury’s attorneys. They all said it’s as simple as Tommy going to the embassy and getting his visa. Jake thinks Tommy is just afraid to fight him.

“We’ve spoken to Tommy Fury’s lawyers. They are 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. Is it another case of Tommy Fumbles being scared to fight me? I think the Fury family is manipulating something here to make me fight in the UK.”

Jake said that if Tommy Fury wants to fight in the UK, he’ll have to pony up $15 million. That’s how much he believes he’d lose if the match is moved overseas. Fight fans will have to wait and see if Tommy Fury can resolve the issue, or if the fight will once again be canceled or postponed.
