DAVID PRICE has expressed his disgust at the IBF ranking Erkan Teper third in the world at heavyweight, despite the German failing a drugs test after knocking Price out in two rounds last year.

Although the EBU would not change the result to a No Contest, they did strip Teper of the European crown he won against Price and banned him from competition for two years.

Teper remains the IBF’s top-rated contender despite the failed drugs test, while Price – ranked fifth before his loss to Teper – does not feature in their top 15, and the Liverpudlian wants justice.
