Rocky Fielding and John Ryder are both potential opponents for Tyron Zeuge's next world title defence, says promoter Nisse Sauerland.
The 26-year-old retained his WBA 'regular' super-middleweight title for a third time in March by stopping Isaac Ekpo in a rematch and Zeuge's team are currently negotiating the unbeaten German's next move.
The WBA, whose 'Super' champion is George Groves, have fellow Brit's Ryder and Fielding ranked as number three and four respectively and Sauerland would welcome either to Germany in the near future.
Ryder recently made an explosive statment in the division by stunning Jamie Cox inside two rounds, while Fielding, rated highly with all four major governing bodies, sits on the cusp of fighting for world honours.
"They are definitely both options for Zeuge's next fight," Sauerland exclusively told Sky Sports. "We've spoke to both already.
"At the moment, a lot of people want to be next in line so there is still plenty to look at.
"We have already spoke to Matchroom Boxing about Fielding and have had conversations with Ryder's camp.
"I'm sure they would both be more than happy to travel to Germany for a world title opportunity."
Sauerland is also hopeful of matching his emerging super-middleweight star Zach Parker, from Derbyshire, with one of the pair but understands the risk may heavily outweigh the reward.
"Parker is a very good fighter and we've approached both about that fight as well.
"I do understand that the money has to be right because it is a risky fight, Parker is 14-0, and Fielding and Ryder are looking at world title opportunities.
"Hopefully, we can still sort something out on that front though because I would love to see either domestic clash."
