Erkan Teper (born 18 June 1982) is a German professional boxer. He held the European heavyweight title in 2015, but was stripped by the EBU for failing a drug test.

Professional career[edit]

Teper vs. Price[edit]

Teper faced heavyweight contender David Price on 17 July 2015 for the EBU heavyweight title. He fought belligerently during the bout and knocked down Price in the 2nd round with a left hook. The fight was called off by the referee immediately resulting in a KO victory for Teper.[1]

Doping allegations[edit]

Teper was supposed to face Robert Helenius on 19 December 2015, but cancelled the match due to a shoulder injury.[2] Thus he had to give up the EBU Heavyweight title, which was then claimed by Helenius in a match against Franz Rill. It was later reported that Teper had failed a post-fight drug test after knocking out Price and is currently under investigation for unlawful possession of doping substances.[3]
