‘Wouldn’t get out of bed for that’ – Tommy Fury slams Jake Paul’s derisory $500k offer to fight in UK after MSG scrap KO | The Sun

TOMMY FURY has claimed he "wouldn't get out of bed" to fight Jake Paul for £400,000 after the American offered to come to the UK for the bout.

Paul confirmed on Wednesday that his fight against Fury – which was scheduled for August 6 at Madison Square Garden in New York – was off following the Brit's visa issues.



It is the second time the clash has been cancelled after Fury pulled out last year due to injury and illness.

A frustrated Paul – who is now fighting Hasim Rahman Jr this summer – took to social media to air his grievances and also offered to fly to Britain to take on Fury.

He said: "I’m confident you are a scared little boy who doesn’t want to fight or understand business.

"I will pay you $500K (£400k) to fight me in the UK. I will do it shortly after August 6. You accept?"

Fury has now responded to that offer by laughing off the money put forward by the YouTube star.

The ex-Love Island contestant tweeted: "I wouldn’t get out of bed to fight you for $500k 🤣.

"Let me know when you’re ready to have a serious conversation."

Team Paul terminated their contract with Fury over the Brit's reported failure to rectify his immigration issue with the United States embassy.

The social media star said in a statement: "Fury’s received a termination notice.

"MVP did everything it could 2 help him & team. He wasn’t interested & he literally went into hiding. 2nd time in a row he has pulled out."

Paul and Fury's clash was thrown into major doubt late last month when Homeland Security prevented the latter from boarding a flight to America.

The incident occurred just days after brother Tyson was prevented from entering the country due to his "involvement" with alleged Irish mob boss Daniel Kinahan.

Following the termination of his contract to face Paul, Fury said: "I'm gutted and disappointed in regards to issues I have faced with entry to the USA.

"This situation has been left with my lawyers as being denied entry to a country is obviously a very serious issue and needs to be resolved.

"I am confident this fight will happen when the issues get resolved.

"I want to clarify that I will fight in a neutral country that both parties can enter. This can be any time, any place, anywhere."
