TOMMY FURY argued he is “too far gone” not to fight Jake Paul as he issued a plea to reschedule their grudge match.

Fury has twice had to pull out against Paul, firstly after suffering a broken rib in training and then amid a US visa issue.

Hasim Rahman Jr, 31, was brought in as the most recent replacement, although that was also cancelled following a weight disagreement.

Fury, 23, has spoken out to urge Paul, 25, into trying to organise a THIRD fight between them and is willing to do it on neutral territory.

He told VIP Boxing Promotions: “Both of us now, it’s too far gone for it now to happen.

“As you’ve seen in his last fight, he couldn’t sell over a few thousand tickets because nobody knew his opponent.

“In this game you need a good dance partner and I can’t say it any fairer than this, I will fight you in any single place in this world.

“You don’t have to come to England, I’ll fight you in Canada next to America, I’m not bothered.”

Paul is still yet to face an opponent with prior professional boxing experience after Fury and Rahman’s withdrawals.

He has so far beaten online rival “AnEsonGib”, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 38, and former UFC pair Ben Askren, 38, and Tyron Woodley, 40.

Paul was due to fight Fury at Madison Square Garden but the brother to WBC champion Tyson, 33, ran into travel problems.

He said: “We’re trying to sort it as we speak.

“But everybody thinks it’s just a simple process of turning up and going to the embassy but it’s not.

“It takes time and my lawyers are on to that now, and trying to do everything they can to get this fight on.

“Hopefully we can get it resolved and I can go to America and fight him, but if I can’t, I’ll fight him anywhere else in the world.

“I can’t say it fairer than that. What more can I say? I’ll fight him anywhere else on the planet, you pick, not bothered and I’ll be there.”
