Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy has said it has come as “a huge shock to me” after he was stopped at Heathrow Airport from travelling to attend a press conference for his upcoming clash with Jake Paul.
Speaking on Instagram, he said: "Me and my team arrived at Heathrow Airport ready to fly out and as soon as I entered the airport I was pulled to one side and told by a Homeland Security officer that my ESTA had been denied and that I wasn't able to travel to the USA for a reason I apparently know.
"I can stand here and say I have done nothing wrong and I have no clue why I'm not allowed to travel to the USA. I've been training for a fight this whole time and that's all I've been doing. I have no clue why I'm not allowed to travel and neither does my team or my lawyers.”
Hughie Fury was with MTK as well. Tommy is with Frank Warren.
Tommy was on Tyson's team for his fight against Wilder last year. The Yanks don't need much of a reason to deny or revoke an ESTA or Visa, their country, their rules.
