Professional careerEdit

Teper vs. PriceEdit

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 allegationsEdit

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]
