Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will not fight in August. Will the fight ever take place?

A boxing match between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul has been in the works since December. The first meeting was called off because Fury sustained an injury. Now, Fury has been forced to cancel once again due to travel issues.

Fury, who is the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, posted a statement on Twitter claiming that he will be unable to make it into the U.S. prior to the fight. Paul did not waste time commenting on the post offering a fight in the U.K. but the payday will be far less than the original amount.

“I’M GUTTED AND DISAPPOINTED IN REGARDS TO THE ISSUES I HAVE FACED WITH ENTRY INTO THE USA. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT MYSELF OR MY TEAM COULD HAVE NEVER ANTICIPATED HAPPENING. THIS SITUATION HAS BEEN LEFT WITH MY LAWYERS AS BEING DENIED ENTRY TO A COUNTRY IS OBVIOUSLY A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE AND IT NEEDS TO SUBSEQUENTLY BE RESOLVED.

I AM CONFIDENT THIS FIGHT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THIS ISSUE GETS RESOLVED AND WE COME TO A SOLUTION. I WANT TO CLARIFY THAT I WILL FIGHT IN A NEUTRAL COUNTRY THAT BOTH PARTIES CAN ENTER. THIS CAN BE ANY TIME, ANY PLACE, ANY WHERE.”

Jake Paul will now take on Hasim Rahman Jr. on August 6 as the son of former heavyweight boxing champion steps in for Fury.

Jake Paul Responds, Offers $500k For Fight

Jake Paul has not been shy about offering up massive paydays for fighters interested in stepping in the ring. The former YouTuber has successfully made the transition into the ring but has received criticism for not taking on a real fighter. Paul has victories over YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA player Nate Robinson, Ben Askren, and Tyron Woodley.

At this point, Paul has attempted to fight Fury on two separate occasions and is unhappy that it has not happened yet. Paul immediately responded to Fury on Twitter.

“I’M CONFIDENT YOU ARE A SCARED LITTLE BOY WHO DOESN’T WANT TO FIGHT OR UNDERSTAND BUSINESS. I WILL PAY YOU $500K TO FIGHT ME IN THE UK. I WILL DO IT SHORTLY AFTER AUGUST 6. YOU ACCEPT?”

The original agreement for this fight was upwards of $2 million for the fight at Madison Square Garden. After being offered a price that is significantly less, Fury responded to Paul and did not accept.

“I WOULDN’T GET OUT OF BED TO FIGHT YOU FOR $500K. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU’RE READY TO HAVE A SERIOUS CONVERSATION.”

It is unknown when or if Jake Paul and Tommy Fury will ever step in the ring together but maybe the third time is the charm. Paul will still be in action on August 6 at the Garden.
