Jake Paul Says Fight w/ British Boxer Tommy Fury Is OFF

Media Take Out Staff |

Jake Paul says that his upcoming fight with Tommy Fury has been canceled.

The fight had been set for Aug. 6. Fury cannot travel to the United States and was forced to cancel the fight for the second time.

“Fury’s received a termination notice. (Promoter) MVP did everything it could to help him and team. He wasn’t interested and he literally went into hiding,” Paul wrote on Twitter. “Second time in a row he has pulled out. Second time in a row I’m going to step up and take on a new opponent on short notice. AUG 6. MSG.”

Last month, Paul’s promotional company, MVP (Most Valuable Promotions), said that Fury had been banned from flying to America.

“Despite many assurances by Tommy Fury’s team that he was able to come to the U.S., and knowing that Tommy was in California just last month, we were surprised to learn that he had an issue at Heathrow Airport on Monday,” the statement read.

“As a result of circumstances out of our control, the scheduled press conference for Wednesday at MSG has been postponed. We are working with our partners at SHOWTIME and Madison Square Garden and will share more information as soon as we are able.”
