The 23-year-old had been scheduled to appear at a press conference in New York tomorrow promoting the bout.

"Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport ready for the press conference, ready to fly out.

"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 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 and I have no clue why I am not allowed to travel to the USA.

"Like I say I've been training for a fight for this whole time, and that's all I've been doing."

Fury went on to insist he had "no clue" as to why he had been denied entry into the States.

But the former Love Island contestant vowed he was trying to resolve the matter.

He continued: "I have no clue why they would not allow me to travel today, and neither does any of my team or my lawyers.

"Now I'm having to go to Embassies and all this sort of stuff to try and 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's a matter that needs to be resolved, it's government issues. You know it's a lot bigger than the fight right now and I'm just trying to get it sorted.

"But I just wanted to let you all know where it was at."
