Fury and Paul were due to go against each other in the US at Madison Square Garden but once again their bout was called off as Fury failed to gain access to the country.

'This is something that myself or my team could have never anticipated happening'

The former Love Island star posted a message on social media on Wednesday expressing his disappointment at having to cancel the fight.

He said: "I'm gutted and disappointed in regards to the issues I have faced with entry into the USA.

"This is something that myself or my team could have never anticipated happening.

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

He added that he is 'confident' the fight will go ahead somewhere that both fighters can access, adding: "I want to clarify that I will fight in a neutral country that both parties can enter.

"This can be any time, any place, any where."

'I’m confident you are a scared little boy who doesn’t want to fight or understand business'

Paul however wasn't buying it and instead claimed that Fury was a 'scared little boy' before offering his opponent a huge fee to rearrange for the fight for next month.

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 to fight me in the UK. I will do it shortly after August 6. You accept?"

Fury has yet to reply to Paul's offer but the former YouTuber-turned-boxer's ultimatum could mean that there is still a chance the fight could go ahead.
