Andy Murray, who has won the award in three of the last four years, has not been nominated.
Anthony Joshua could be the early favourite thanks to his stunning victory over Vladmir Klitschko back in April.
Lewis Hamilton, who won the award in 2014, may also be a contender for the prize after becoming F1 champion for the fourth time this year.
