Jake Paul slams Tommy Fury for ignoring his help to get into the US

  • Tom Ward

Jake Paul has accused Tommy Fury of running ‘scared’ in an extraordinary rant.

The YouTuber turned boxer has been left without an opponent after cancelling his fight with Hasim Rahman Jr.

Former Disney star Paul, 25, was due to fight Rahman Jr on Saturday night at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York.

But the fight at MSG has now been cancelled after Rahman failed to make the agreed upon weight.

Rahman had been called up as a late replacement for Fury, who was reportedly refused entry into the United States.

And the former Love Island contest, who is best known for being the half-brother of Tyson Fury, was the object of the social media star’s anger in an interview he did with the Daily Mail earlier this week.

He said: “We had people ready to get him into the country and within the embassy.

“I have a ton of connections in politics and we were able to get him in, and he disappeared off the face of the Earth. 

“I DM’ed him. When I mentioned him in an Instagram story it would say “seen”. I messaged him this whole thing – “here I have this person to get you in, contact this person, we’ll get you in”. He still hasn’t opened the message. 

“He wasn’t even responding to his own promoters. Who knows if he even went to the airport. The guy is a flake.

“This is the second time he’s done this now. You’d think if there was a famous guy like Tommy who went to the airport there would be a picture of him, but there’s nothing. As far as I’m concerned, the kid is scared and he’s a joke.”

But Paul didn’t stop there either as he proceeded to call Fury every name under the sun in an expletive-laden tirade.

He continued: “I was going to gave him the biggest payday of his career.

“He was getting 50k [for previous fights] and I offered him 200k. Then I was going to offer him a couple of million. I make that for Instagram posts.

“The fact he said “Jake needs me” is hilarious, it’s delusion. The kid has done nothing, he’s a reality TV star who is the younger brother of a world champion – who everyone respects. He has followers because of his brother.

“He’s wasting my time, he has to pay for that. He’s wasting millions of dollars, cancelling these fights. He’s a f***ing joke.

“It’s annoying and it’s p***ing everyone off. It’s not me making him look bad – he does look bad. He is a p***y, he is a b***h and I’m just shining a spotlight on that.”
