Jake Paul Sends Tommy Fury His Demands For Moving Fight To UK
| Last updated
Jake Paul has sent Tommy Fury his demands for moving their fight to the UK. Have a listen below:
Earlier this week, Fury revealed that he was denied entry into the US ahead of his re-scheduled fight against Paul after his Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) had been turned down in the country.
Now, Paul has offered the chance to head to the ring on Fury’s home turf if he can cough up $15 million (£12.4 million) - an amount that Paul claims his rival 'doesn’t have'.
Elsewhere in the clip, Paul offered some legal advice to Fury about continuing their fight in the US, in which he states: "We do more pay-per-view buys, we do more ticket sales, and we do more sponsorship."
Paul suggested that Fury’s lawyers have 'advised him to go the embassy to get his visa' in order to travel to the US and have their fight as planned.
Previously, Fury said to his followers about his refusal into the US: "Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport, ready for the press conference, ready to fly out, and as soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side and I was told by a Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA had been denied and that I wasn't able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know.
"I can stand here and say I've done absolutely nothing wrong, I've no clue why I'm not allowed to travel to the USA.
"Like I say, I've been training for a fight this whole time and that's all I've been doing - I have no clue why they will not allow me to travel today, and neither does any of my team, or my lawyers."
He continued: "So now I'm having to go to the embassies and all this sort of stuff trying to resolve it, and I'm in the middle of training guys. I don't know why this has happened today, it's a massive shock to me and my whole team.
"Obviously it is a matter that needs to be resolved, it's government issues, it's a lot bigger than the fight right now and I'm just trying to get it sorted."
The 23-year-old is due to fight YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul in Madison Square Garden in August. However, it is not clear whether or not the fight will go ahead as planned.
