Tyson Fury has an opponent for his upcoming fight in December.
Fury and his team made it clear they would be competing on Dec. 5 and they revealed they have selected Agit Kabayel as the opponent.
“Tyson’s fighting on December 5. We’re giving the guy we wanna fight, which is Kabayel, we’re giving him 24 hours now to sign the contract or we’re gonna move on,” co-promoter Frank Warren revealed to TalkSport. “He’s undefeated and has a win on his record over Derek Chisora. He [was] the European champion and he’s ranked by the WBC. That’s who’s sitting at the moment on a contract and we’re waiting. He’s got about 24 hours now to make his mind up to sign it and send it back or we’ll move on. He’s the fight, subject to the contract being signed.”
The event is targeted to take place at the Royal Albert Hall in London with Fury looking to defend his WBC heavyweight title.
Tyson Fury is coming off a seventh-round TKO win over Deontay Wilder to win the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles. In the first fight, Fury and Wilder fought to a draw with Wilder dropping the Englishman twice with the second time, many believing the fight was over. Fury enters this fight 30-0-1 as a pro.
Agit Kabayel is 20-0 and coming off a decision win over Evgenios Lazaridis in July. The German does hold a notable win over Derek Chisora which is the biggest win of his career. Whether or not Kabayel will sign the contract is to be seen.
If the fight does happen and Fury wins, it should set up a long-awaited bout between him and Anthony Joshua. Or, perhaps the trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder will happen sometime in 2021 as Wilder has made it clear he demands the rematch and accused Fury of cheating.
