WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury is banned from entering the United States, his brother Tommy Fury has stated.
Tyson Fury was reported as being denied access to the US in June for his alleged links to Irish crime boss Daniel Kinahan, who has been sanctioned by American authorities.
The US Department of State also announced a reward of up to $5 million for any information that leads to the arrest or conviction of three Kinahan family members.
In an appearance on the MMA Fighting on SBN podcast on Monday, Tommy Fury said that “me and Tyson just can’t get into America at the minute and that’s the way it is.”
If correct, the ban means that Tyson Fury has to hold his fights in the UK or the Middle East, while Tommy has already had a planned bout with YouTuber Jake Paul in New York canceled.
