Bob Arum, co-promoter of WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), said that the list of potential contenders for the Briton’s December performance has been reduced to five.

One option is the WBC ranked number 15, the undefeated German prospect Agit Kabayel (20-0-0, 13 KO). The rest of the promoter has not yet revealed, but promised to resolve the issue this week.

“It should be a top 15 fighter in the WBC rankings. We have formed a list and got five fighters who are available and capable of a good performance. Hopefully this week we will decide on the choice,” said Arum.
