Jake Paul has named his price to fight Tommy Fury in the UK amid concerns that the fight might not be able to happen in the United States due to Tommy’s issues with entering the US.

Over the last few weeks, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury have reignited their long-standing rivalry, and even agreed to finally settle the score inside the boxing ring after their last fight was called off due to injury.

The pair had been set to headline the August 6th MVP card at Madison Square Garden, but things have hit a hitch. Ahead of a scheduled press conference, Tommy was apparently denied entry to the United States by border officials in the UK.

Jake has claimed he’s “moving on” and finding a new opponent to fight in place of Tommy, but with fans urging him to make the fight happen in the UK instead, the YouTuber-turned-boxer has laid out his conditions.

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury finally agreed to a fight on August 6, 2022 – but extenuating circumstances have put things in danger of not happening.

As noted, with Tommy unable to travel to New York, there have been plenty of calls for the fight to be swapped to the UK – which proses logistical problems, seeing as a new venue would have been secured with barely a month’s notice.

On top of that, Jake would want a bit more in the way of a payout from the fight to make the trip across the Atlantic. “I think the Fury family is trying to manipulate something here to make me fight in the UK,” Jake said on a Twitter video.

“Ok, you want me to fight in the UK? Show me $15 million. Ok, because here in America, we do more pay-per-view buys, more ticket sales, and we do more sponsorships.”

Jake’s demands have been called “delusional” by his other longtime rival KSI, after he offered to step in and help rescue the card that now appears to be on the rocks.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not the fight will go ahead – either in the US or the UK – but the clock is ticking, and ticking quickly.
