British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has announced through a YouTube video that he will return to the ring on December 1, and that he is seeking a top 10 opponent for the bout.

Fury, 24, holds a professional boxing record of 19-0-0 with 14 victories coming by way of knockout. Standing at 6'9", Fury is one of the few boxers who holds an advantage in height over the dominant Klitschko brothers, whom he surely has one eye on facing in the future as he looks to prove himself against higher-ranked fighters.

Since Fury's victory last year over Derek Chisora, fans have been disappointed by the level of opposition he has faced, including accusations he is ducking fellow British prospect David Price. Given Fury's announcement that he is seeking a top 10 opponent, is it really fair to say he is ducking Price, whose next bout is against the much lower-ranked Audley Harrison?

So, with a top 10-ranked opponent for Fury to find, who are the possibilities?
