The duo were set to come face to face at a press conference on Wednesday ahead of their huge grudge match at Madison Square Garden on August 6.
Fury took to Instagram on Tuesday afternoon to tell fans he'd been stopped at Heathrow Airport in London and told he couldn't board his flight.
The 23-year-old claims to have done 'absolutely nothing wrong' and has no idea why he was prevented from travelling.
Paul immediately responded on Twitter with a fiery message, which reads: "Tommy, no matter how hard u [sic] try to get out of this fight, I’m going 2 [sic] do everything in my power 2 [sic] not let u [sic] weasel ur [sic] way out.
Tommy, no matter how hard u try to get out of this fight, I’m going 2 do everything in my power 2 not let u weasel ur way out. My team & my partners have made it clear the steps u need to take 2 solve ur latest excuse. Take them or admit ur a scared little bitch. #TommyFumbles— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) June 28, 2022
"My team & my partners have made it clear the steps u [sic] need to take 2 [sic] solve ur [sic] latest excuse. Take them or admit ur [sic] a scared little b**ch. #TommyFumbles."
Paul and Fury were set to fight back in December, but Fury pulled out due to a rib injury and bacterial chest infection.
'The Problem Child' instead defeated Tyron Woodley to take his professional boxing record to 5-0.
Fury has feuded with Paul for over a year and expressed his disappointment at missing the press conference.
"Me and my team this morning arrived at Heathrow Airport, ready for the press conference, ready to fly out and as soon as I entered the airport I got pulled to one side," the 23-year-old said.
"I was told by a Homeland Security officer that was there that my ESTA [Electronic System for Travel Authorization] had been denied and that I wasn't able to travel to the USA for a reason that I apparently know.
Despite many assurances by Tommy Fury and his team that he was able to come to the U.S., and knowing that Tommy was in California just last month, we were surprised to learn that he had an issue at Heathrow airport on Monday.— Most Valuable Promotions (@MostVpromotions) June 28, 2022
As a result of circumstances out of our control, the scheduled press conference for Wednesday at MSG has been postponed. We are working with our partners at SHOWTIME and Madison Square Garden and will share more information as soon as we are able.— Most Valuable Promotions (@MostVpromotions) June 28, 2022
"I can stand here and say I've done absolutely nothing wrong, I've no clue why I'm not allowed to travel to the USA.
"Like I say, I've been training for a fight this whole time and that's all I've been doing. I have no clue why they will not allow me to travel today, and neither does any of my team, or my lawyers."
Tommy is the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and 'the Gypsy King' recently got involved.
Tyson agreed to a $1 million bet with Paul ahead of his fight with Tommy and then went on to lead a crowd of people in singing 'Jake Paul is a p**sy' in Sheffield.
Whether the fight goes ahead or not remains to be seen.
