Photos: David Price, Erkan Teper Go Face To Face

David Price admits to having 'bad intentions' as he bids to win the European heavyweight title on Friday night, live on BoxNation.

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

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

Price (19-2 16KOs) 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.”

[QUOTE=shoog;15876265]I was intrigued by this fight but from these photos it seems like a match from the bush leagues.[/QUOTE] That's how Teper usually looks and he was the same weight in his last fight when he beat Duhaupas (the guy…

I really hope Price comes through this. Teper is nothing special, as one poster has already said, but, the thing is, Price still looks vulnerable. Should be a good scrap; i'll be watching.

Teper is awful, but we're talking David Price here. One clean shot and he gets Price checked.
