Teper Previous Suspension Never Relayed To EBU

By Per Ake Persson

German paper Bild writes that Erkan Teper in fact was suspended for nine months (after an appeal it was shortend to six months) after the positive dopingtest after winning the EU title against Newfel Outah June 13, 214. However, the result was never changed, the EBU not informed and Teper was reigning EU champ until he relinquished the title November 27 the same year.

Teper was then announced as on for a fight against Johann Duhaupas December 8 with the IBF IC title at stake. Days before the fight Teper withdrew with what was announced as surgery for appendix. In March 2015 with the suspension over Teper beat Duhaupas (and tested negative) and then came the fight against David Price July 15 where Erkan won on a devastating knockout over Price and another positive doping test followed.

Still, a voluntary defence was negotiated by Z! Promotions against Robert Helenius. Teper withdrew with a claimed injury and the BDB states to Bild that Teper would never had gotten permission to fight with his doping case still under investigation. The BDB says that Erkan Teper never responded to any messages and thus the B sample was never tested and December 9 he was suspended for a year – but the EBU was apparently never informed.

Meanwhile the police got into this and Erkan Teper now face suspension from boxing for a year, a hefty fine and possibly even jailtime. Much of the performance enhancing illegal substances are classified as drugs.

As for the David Price fight the result may be changed to a No Contest but it is still an open question.

David Price should sue these cheating scumbags. From the fighter to anyone involved in the cover-up.
