David Price-Erkan Teper Snagged By BoxNation

LONDON - British heavyweight David Price’s clash for the vacant European title against Erkan Teper on July 17 will be shown live and exclusive on BoxNation.

The Merseyside hitman will travel to Ludwigsburg, Germany as he looks to overcome the undefeated Teper, who has won all 14 of his bouts, with nine coming by way of knockout.

31-year-old Price is aiming to re-establish himself as one of the leading names in what has historically been boxing’s glamour division after suffering two back-to-back defeats against American Tony Thompson in 2013.

Price has enjoyed four wins since then, including a spectacular sixth-round stoppage of Irineu Beato Costa Junior in his last fight, but Teper represents a step up in class, with victory set to put him back at the top of the heavyweight mix.

The former British and Commonwealth champion was long mooted as one of Britain’s brightest prospects, with 16 knockouts from 19 wins showing he has the power to dispense of anyone he shares the ring with, including 33-year-old Teper.

“This is an absolutely massive fight for me,” said Price. “To win the European title, and to become the first heavyweight from Liverpool to do it, would mean the world to me. It’s something no one could ever take away from me and would confirm my credentials as a world title contender.

“I’ve watched all of Teper’s fights and he is the perfect opponent for me. I’m 100% confident I will win. He is exactly the type of fighter I’ve been looking to fight, so to do it with the European title on the line is an added bonus.

“I’ll tell you now; he has never been in the ring with anyone who can punch like me, who can move like me and with my ability. I’m not messing around anymore. I’m coming with bad intentions.”

A big but logical step up for Price. If he wins, would be the best in his resume. Looking forward to the fight.

Sky must not want to screen him being knocked out before being matched against Joshua, lol.

Teper only has to touch Price' chin once and down he goes...
