Tommy Fury, brother of Tyson Fury, was barred from entering the United States last week for unspecified reasons. This proved to be more than a mere inconvenience, as Fury was reportedly due to attend a press conference in New York with Jake Paul to promote their August fight – the bout will also take place. out in the US. So far, however, there has been no move on Fury’s part – at least not publicly – to self-explanatory to come to America. And Paul was ready to move on.
“Tommy will be officially gone on Wednesday morning if he doesn’t go to the embassy / hide,” Paul posted on social media on Sunday, “3 other opponents lined up. I was built differently”. It’s clear that Paul, a very popular but still inexperienced boxer, wants his scheduled August fight with Tommy Fury to be watched until it’s done. However, as he made it clear, the powerful media influencer who became a famous boxer has no intention of waiting forever. To make things even more interesting, Fury promoter Frank Warren sympathizes with Team Paul while being somewhat critical of Fury himself.
“He has to go to the embassy,” Warren said IFLTV by Fury. “There are no appointments yet, and I can understand where they are coming from (i.e. Paul and his team).” While there’s no such thing as a boxer being a coward, one might wonder if Fury is interested in facing Paul at this point. It would be rather strange if he didn’t. For Paul-Fury will be a pay-per-view event held at Madison Square Garden. It will also be a fight where Fury will also make a lot of money.
Ultimately, Fury has a real chance against Paul if he decides to take on him in the ring. Like Paul, Fury’s record may betray his lack of professional experience, but unlike Paul’s previous rivals, the man is no newcomer. He’s been fighting as a pro for a while. Fury and his team have kept quiet, so it’s at least safe to assume something is underway to get Fury on the state side. The question, however, is whether the man can make it to the United States in time?
