Jake Paul canceled his boxing match with Tommy Fury after claiming that Tyson Fury’s half-brother “wasn’t interested and literally went into hiding”.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer was scheduled to compete with Fury on August 6 at Madison Square Garden, but doubts about their fight began to creep in when the Briton was Banned from traveling to America to attend their press conference.
Paul has since taken to Twitter to announce that he and his team have issued a termination notice to Fury after doing “everything” in their power to arrange the fight.

Paul took to Twitter to say: “Fury received notice of termination. Top player [Most Valuable Promotions] He did everything he could to help him and his team. He was not interested and literally went into hiding.
For the second time in a row withdrew. For the second time in a row, I’ll be up and taking on a new opponent in no time. August 6. MSG.
The couple’s rivalry was supposed to settle down again in December at the Amalie Arena in Florida, but Fury had to pull out with a broken rib and a sore chest.
As a result, their fight was rescheduled for August 6 at Madison Square Garden. However, Fury encountered a stumbling block when trying to enter America.
Fury is set to travel to the United States for a press conference to promote their fight but is denied entry.

Fury filmed a video explaining why he was unable to board his flight to the United States to promote the fight last month.
He said: ‘[I wanted to] Come here and set the record straight before anyone else tries it.
This morning my team and I arrived at Heathrow ready for the press conference and ready to fly.
‘As soon as I entered the airport, I was pulled to one side and the Homeland Security officer told me that my ESTA was denied and I couldn’t fly to the US for some reason I seem to know.
“I can stand here and say that I have done absolutely nothing wrong and have no idea why I am not allowed to travel to the United States.”
I’ve been training to fight the whole time and that’s all I’ve been doing. I have no idea why I am not allowed to travel today, nor do any of my team or lawyers.
So now I have to go to the embassies and all this stuff, trying to sort it out and I’m in the middle of training, guys, I don’t know why this happened today – it’s a massive shock to me and my whole team.

Paul gave fans a status update regarding Fury – claiming that his opponent was in hiding
“Obviously it’s an issue that needs to be resolved, it’s government issues, it’s a lot bigger than the battle right now and I’m trying to solve it but I just wanted to let you all know where it is.”
In response to the setback in their efforts to confront each other, Paul angrily tweeted: “Tommy, no matter how hard you try to get out of this fight, I will do everything in my power not to let you wear your way. Outside.
My team and partners have explained the steps you need to take to resolve your latest excuse. Take them or admit that you are a little scared person****.
Paul’s Most Valuable Performances also confirmed in a statement that the press conference had to be postponed due to the situation regarding anger.
“Despite numerous assurances from Tommy Fury’s team that he was able to come to the US, and learning that Tommy was in California only last month, we were surprised to learn he had a problem at Heathrow on Monday,” the statement read.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the press conference scheduled for Wednesday at MSG has been postponed.
“We are working with our partners SHOWTIME and Madison Square Garden and will share more information as soon as we are able.”
Paul Fury gave a deadline to sort out his travel issues before canceling the fight
Paul took to Twitter again on June 30 to update fans on the situation – claiming that Fury was ‘hiding’.
He said: Tommy Fury is in hiding. b***h made. Tyson Fury’s attorney never got back to my team setting up the escrow account for our $1 million bet. I didn’t believe in his brother. I ordered my team to do Hova (Jay-Z) and move on to the next.
He shared an accompanying video in which he was heard saying: ‘We’ve spoken to Tommy Fury’s lawyer, and they all advise him to go to the embassy to get his visa.
That’s all he has to do. But Tommy showed no urgency, hadn’t gone yet, and hadn’t communicated with us about what he was doing.
This is another case of Tommy Vumpels’ fear of fighting me. I think this is this. I think the Fury family is trying to manipulate something to get me to fight in the UK.
Do you want me to fight in the UK? Show me $15 million. Because here in America, we do more PPV purchases, more ticket sales and more sponsorship.
Fury has yet to respond to the notice, but Paul is already preparing for a fight against heavyweight Hashim Rahman Jr (pictured together above)
I’ve shown you the money, and we’re ready to go. MSG, August 6th. Tommy, are you going to miss the biggest payday of your life because you want me to go to the UK?
I’ll just come over there and show me the money, but you can’t do that. this is embarrassing. Go to the embassy, get your visa, stop evading me and stop wasting my time.
Then, Paul gave Fury a deadline – claiming the fight would be called off if he didn’t show up at the US Embassy before Wednesday morning.
“Tommy will be officially out by Wednesday morning if he doesn’t go to the embassy/get out of hiding,” he wrote on Twitter. Three other opponents lined up. I built differently.
As the deadline passed on Wednesday, Paul took to social media again to announce that he had issued Fury a “termination notice.”
Fury has yet to respond to the notice, but Paul is already planning a fight against heavyweight Hashim Rehman Jr.
While Rahman Jr. didn’t fight many big names while building the 12-1 record, his famous father knocked out Lennox Lewis to take the World Heavyweight Championship in 2001 in one of the biggest turmoil the sport has seen for years.
