Paul took to Twitter again on June 30 to update fans on the situation, claiming that Fury was “hiding”.

He said, “Tommy Fury is hiding. B***h made. Tyson Fury’s attorney never got back to my team about setting up escrow for our $1 million bet. ‘Never believed in his brother. Instructed my team to do a Hova (Jay-Z) and move on to the next one.”

He shared an accompanying video in which he said: ‘We spoke to Tommy Fury’s lawyers, they all advise him to just go to the embassy to get his visa.

“That’s all he has to do. But Tommy shows no urgency, he’s not gone yet, he’s not communicating with us about what he’s doing.

“This is another case of Tommy Fumbles just being afraid to fight me. I think this is what this is. I think the Fury family is trying to manipulate something to get me to fight in the UK.

‘Do you want me to fight in the UK? Show me $15 million. Because here in America we do more PPV purchases, more ticket sales and more sponsorship.
