Tommy Fury has confirmed he has been blocked from enterting America and has missed out on the opportunity to join his brother Tyson’s training camp ahead of his heavyweight showdown against Anthony Joshua.

The WBC world champion, who is hoping to confirm a date and venue for his eagerly anticipated all-British showdown imminently, jetted off to Las Vegas last week.

Fury is expected to link up with legendary trainer Javan SugarHill Steward again – the man who masterminded his devastating landmark knockout win over Deontay Wilder last February – and already has Billy Joe Saunders for company with the 31-year-old preparing for his career-defining fight against Canelo Alvarez on May 8.

Love Island star Tommy, who has won all five of his fights since turning pro three years ago, won’t be joining Top Rank’s private gym, however, and confirmed the news to his legion of Instagram followers.

He said: ‘So guys, as you can see I’m not in Vegas. A lot has been going on in the past week or so, that’s why I’ve not really been posting on here.

‘It’s been, ‘I am going, I’m not going’ a lot of it’s been up in the air. So yeah, it’s been a bit of a stressed out week for me.

‘But, I’m absolutely gutted because obviously I was packed up, went all the way down to Heathrow everything was sorted on this side, but not on the American side.

‘It just wasn’t meant to be this time guys. There’s no stress now, we stay here, we keep riding, we keep training, ready for the next fight and when I’m allowed to go freely, that’s when I’ll be over there.

‘I will get the experience and yeah that’s the update guys.

‘Just thought I’d let you all know that I’m not over there, I’m over here, in England and going to be training for the next fight. Fight date coming very soon.’
