Erkan Teper - Details of Return Explained By BDB President

By Per Ake Persson

When heavyweight contender Erkan Teper came back to the ring this past Sunday, he was still listed by both boxrec, Fight Fax and the EBU as still suspended.

Teper (16-0 or 15-0-0-1) returned to action after almost a year out in Lueneburg (Germany) and won a ten round unanimous decision over American contender DerricRossy (30-12). It was scored 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94. The show was promoted by PSP Boxing and sanctioned by the BDB (German Boxing Commission).

Teper was suspended for two years by the EBU after failing a doping test after winning the EBU title July 17, 2015, with a second round knockout over David Price.

The fact of the matter is that Teper, his promoter Z! and the BDB came to an agreement before July 3 that ended the suspension (not with the EBU though).

According to boxen1.com – quoting BDB President Thomas Puetz – Teper had to pay a hefty fine, and must be subject to random testing at all times – all paid for by Z!. It was also made clear that this is Teper´s last chance – another positive test and he faces and indefinite suspension.

This suspension is still in effect by the EBU and is supposed to be respected by the EBU members - but in reality it only blocks Teper from EBU sanctioned fights.

BDB didn't honor or uphold the EBU suspension. Shameful.
