Tommy Fury has revealed that he was denied entry into the United States by Homeland Security officers who stopped him from flying to Heathrow Airport.
The younger half-brother of Tyson Fury was set to fly to the United States for a press conference to promote his fight with American YouTuber Paul.
However, the fight which is scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden on August 6, is now at risk.
Fury filmed a video late on Monday night, and posted it on Tuesday, explaining why he had not been able to get on his flight to the United States.
He said: ‘[I wanted to] come on here and set the record straight before anybody else tries to.
‘Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport ready for the press conference, ready to fly out.
‘And as soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side and I was told by the Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA had been denied and I wasn’t able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know.
‘I can stand here and I say I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong and I have no clue why I’m not allowed to travel to the USA.

Fury’s fight with YouTuber Jake Paul on August 6 in New York is now at risk of not happening
It was reported earlier this month that his half-brother Tyson had been denied access to the US over his alleged links to crime boss Daniel Kinahan.
Addressing claims that Irish boxing promoter Kinahan runs a global organised crime group, Fury has previously stated said: ‘That’s none of my business and I don’t interfere with anybody else’s business.’
Tyson, who was photographed in Dubai in February this year with the now US sanctioned Kinahan, said: ‘Because I had my picture taken with a man it doesn’t make me a criminal.
‘I’m just a boxer. There could be a criminal in this building.’
Tommy Fury ‘has no idea’ why he was not allowed to access the US and in his video he has stated that he is contact with his lawyers in order to try and resolve the issue
Fury was due to fight Paul in December but pilled out with a broken rib and chest infection
Tommy Fury meanwhile has been training for his fight with undefeated YouTuber Paul, in a match that had been postponed last year.
The pair were supposed to settle their rivalry back in December at the Amalie Arena in Florida, but Fury had to pull out with a broken rib and a chest infection.
In regards to his latest setback, Tommy said he is in contact with the lawyers who ‘have no clue’ as to why he was not allowed to travel, and it’s something they’re trying to resolve.
He said: ‘I’ve been training for a fight this whole time and that’s all I’ve been doing.

‘I have no clue why they would not allow me to travel today and neither does any of my team or my laywers.
‘So now I’m having to go to them trying to resolve it, and I’m in the middle of training.
‘I don’t know why this is happening today, it’s a massive shock to me and my whole team.
‘Obviously it is a matter that needs to be resolved. It’s government issues, it’s a lot bigger than the fight right now and I’m just trying to get it sorted.’
