Tommy Fury Has Confirmed He Was Denied Entry Into The USA Yesterday
Tommy Fury has confirmed that he was denied entry into the USA yesterday ahead of his planned fight against Jake Paul.
Fury was set to travel to the USA for the launch press conference ahead of the battle with Paul, which is scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden on August 6th.
The fight now appears to be in serious jeopardy though, as Fury reveals he was stopped upon arrival at Heathrow Airport and told that he would not be allowed to board the flight to take him to the USA.
Fury said: "Just to set the record straight before anybody else tries to. Me and my team arrived at Heathrow ready to fly out, but as soon as I entered I was pulled to one side and told my ESTA was denied and I can't travle for a reason I apparently know. I can stand here and say I've done nothing wrong and I have no clue why they won't allow me to travel. Neither does my team or my lawyers.
"I'm now having to go to the embassy to try and resolve it whilst I'm in the middle of training. I don't know why this has happened, but I wanted to let everybody know."
Tommy being denied entry to the USA comes less than two weeks after his brother Tyson Fury was reportedly also refused entry to the USA after he tried to board a flight.
