The two were supposed to meet on August 6 in New York. Aside from the attention, Fury was set to get a six-figure payout. However, following his alleged restriction to enter the US at Heathrow Airport, it appears that Fury may kiss goodbye to a large paycheck. Tyson even took to social media to inform followers of his predicament.

Tommy has yet to contact the US Embassy in order to correct the blunder, and it appears that the YouTube celebrity has reached his breaking point. With one foot almost out the door, he tweets, “Tommy is officially out if he doesn’t go to the Embassy or come out of hiding by Wednesday morning.”

Amanda Serrano and Jake Paul.

Regardless of Fury’s availability, Paul is likely to return to the ring next month. Jake Paul is already booked to fight at Madison Square Garden with world champion Amanda Serrano.  

Paul even had his sights set on current UFC star Nate Diaz, who is anxious to be freed before completing his contract. However, UFC president Dana White has urged that the welterweight fulfills his contract or will mostly see that the fight could happen under their banner.

However, potential opponents look to be few, with the announcement that UFC Legend Anderson Silva is out after agreeing to the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s upcoming bout in September.
