Sprott's Career Near The End After Teper TKO Loss

By Per Ake Persson

British heavyweight veteran Michael Sprott, now 37-21, was recently sparring with Tyson Fury and then accepted a fight in Basel, Switzerland, against German based Turk Erkan Teper, 11-0, a good puncher but not very special at all. After an uneventful start - Teper caught Sprott with a good right that floored him. Michael got up and was allowed to continue but was caught again and went down. As he got up the referee stopped it. The time was 2.47.
 
Another Fury sparring partner, Arnold Gjergjaj, 22-0, was to have fought German Markus Tomala, 9-2, in what would have been an interesting test for Gjergjaj but Arnold was forced to pull out due to injury.
 
Sprott vs. Teper thus became the only pro fight on the bill.

37-21 and he still has a career? His career was over the moment he got that tenth loss..adding 11 more is just insane...but not the worst we've seen. Didn't you guys post the result of a fight of a guy…
