Tommy Fury responds to claims he ‘wasn’t in training’ for Jake Paul fight and calls rumours ‘bulls***’

Tommy Fury has posted a video on social media dispelling claims he ‘wasn’t ready’ to fight Jake Paul.

The pair were set to meet on August 6, however Fury was unable to enter the US for their press conference late last month and it became unclear if he would be able to resolve the issue in time for the fight.

Paul has subsequently replaced the younger brother of Tyson Fury with Hasim Rahman Jr.

The American previously stated that he was set to pay the Brit a purse of $2million for the fight.

Now though, he’s made him an offer of $500,000 for a fight in the UK after he’s faced Rahman.

Fury’s own father, John, claimed that Tommy ‘wasn’t exactly in training’ for the fight.

Jake took to social media to react to those comments.

He tweeted: “I should sue this fool.

“[His] own dad exposes why he pulled out a second time.”

Tommy took to Twitter to post a video clarifying all the comments made.

He said: “Recently on social media, I’ve seen more s*** on me than ever. I just want to get one thing straight, the reason this fight didn’t take place was because I couldn’t get in the country not because I wasn’t training or wasn’t fit.

“I was ready and raring to go. I was at the airport on Monday morning, with my whole team, ready to fly out and get the show on the road.

“I couldn’t get in the country and that’s why this fight didn’t happen. All this bulls*** about me not being ready or not training, forget about it.

“If it has not come from me then don’t believe it because it’s not the truth.”
