Bob Arum has named the three most likely candidates for Tyson Fury’s homecoming fight in London in December. Fury was set to face Deontay Wilder before Christmas, however, the Gypsy King's co-promoter Frank Warren confirmed to talkSPORT
that American's rematch clause had expired.
Arum has revealed that Oscar Rivas, Efe Agbaja and Agit Kabayel were in contention to face Fury.
“Yeah, those are the names,” he told iFL TV
. “It’s not rocket science.
“Go to the 15 names on the WBC list, 10 of them are not available because they are scheduled to fight within the next month or the next two months, they’re not available.
“[Daniel] Dubois is there, [Joe] Joyce is there, but they’re not available. In the same way [Dereck] Chisora is there and [Oleksandr] Usyk is there – but they’re not available.
“Dillian Whyte is there, but he has a fight coming up. [Joseph] Parker is fighting [Junior] Fa who is also there, so you end up with five guys who are possible.
“You mentioned three of the five; there’s Efe Agbaja, Agit Kabayel, Rivas is there and there are two others.
“We will have pick out, see who is available and pick it out. Rivas and Efe are Top Rank fighters and I’m sure we could arrange for them to be available if that’s who was chosen.
“I’ve got to talk to Frank and to Tyson.”
