Efe Ajagba tipped to face Tyson Fury in world title bout

Tyson Fury’s representative Bob Arum has hinted Nigeria’s Efe Ajagba could get a shot at a world title fight with the WBC champion.

Arum made this disclosure shortly after Fury confirmed that the trilogy with former WBC champion Deontay Wilder is off.

Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren also confirmed to talkSPORT that the British heavyweight champion is moving in another direction and his next fight would be in his home country.

When asked about the likely Fury’s next challengers, Arum, named Ajagba, Oscar Rivas, and Agit Kabayel as the names they are looking at.

“Yeah, those are the names,” Arum 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.

“You mentioned three of the five; there’s Efe Agbaja, Agit Kabayel, Rivas is there and there are two others.

“We will have to 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.”
