JAKE PAUL has vowed to do everything in his power not to let Tommy Fury “weasel” his way out of their grudge match.
The pair’s August showdown at Madison Square Garden is on a knife-edge after Fury was stopped from boarding a flight to the USA to take part in a press conference on Wednesday.
Jake Paul and Tommy Fury’s grudge match is currently in major doubt
Paul reacted angrily to the news on Twitter
Paul, 25, was left in the lurch by the Brit just days before their proposed dust-up last December and is hellbent on not being stood up by the Love Island hunk again.
He tweeted: “Tommy, no matter how hard u try to get out of this fight, I’m going 2 do everything in my power 2 not let u weasel ur way out.
“My team & my partners have made it clear the steps u need to take 2 solve ur latest excuse. Take them or admit ur a scared little b****.”
Fury was denied entry to America just days after brother Tyson was prevented from entering the country due to his “involvement” with alleged Irish mob boss Daniel Kinahan.
