EBU, Likely Due To Teper's Return, Drop BDB as a Full Member

By Per Ake Persson

The German EBU member – BDB – have again had a change of status from being a full member of the EBU to a provisional member. This was decided on July 8 with a majority vote by the EBU Council.

As to why - the EBU writes in a statement that a change in member status was made because the BDB "has NOT acted in compliance with the EBU rules, showing a clear lack of respect for them with respect to the suspension rule."

BDB representative Stefan Braune is thus no longer a member of the EBU Board. A final decision will be taken at the next General Assembly in 2017.

The BDB was put back to a provisional member when the Erkan Teper doping affair broke in December/January but was back as full member at the recent General Assembly. While Teper´s name isn´t mentioned in the short, based on the EBU's message there can be no doubt that Teper´s comeback on July 3 made the EBU take this action.

For the record, the European Boxing Union is a non profit organisation registered in Belgium that handles the EBU title (and its subtitles) and while there is a safety agreement signed by all members - the EBU have no legal power and do not rule boxing in Europe – but is still a powerful organisation and it's titles mean prestige and good paydays (BDB licensed fighters – except Erkan Teper – can still contest for EBU titles).
