LUDWIGSBURG, Germany — The hope of David Price ascending to the elite of the heavyweight division has been permanently derailed by the fists Erkan Teper, who scored a second round KO tonight at the MHP Arena.
The undefeated Teper (15-0, 10 KOs) showed no fear of Price’s offense and found a home for overhand rights on his taller foe. Price offered little outside of clinching and feeble jabs, allowing Teper to dictate the tempo. A clubbing right followed by a left hook left Price motionless in a corner for the stoppage.
Price falls to 19-3 (16 KOs), snapping a four fight win streak that began after suffering back to back KO defeats to Tony Thompson in 2013.
