Fury revealed the news in a post on social media on Tuesday

In a post on his social media, Fury revealed he had been stopped at Heathrow airport after it emerged that his ESTA had been rejected.

He said: "Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport, ready for the press conference, ready fly out, and as soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side and I was told by a Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA had been denied and that I wasn't able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know.

"I can stand here and say I've done absolutely nothing wrong, I've no clue why I'm not allowed to travel to the USA.

"Like I say, I've been training for a fight this whole time and that's all I've been doing - I have no clue why they will not allow me to travel today, and neither does any of my team, or my lawyers."

He then continued, saying: "So now I'm having to go to the embassies and all this sort of stuff trying to resolve it, and I'm in the middle of training guys. I don't know why this has happened 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."

Paul responded almost immediately

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 bitch."

The two are set to fight in the US on August 6.
