RFP of the Day: Eric “Butterbean” Esch

This week’s RFP isn’t technically a “player” of anything, but he’s still a notable sports figure of the 90s. Not quite cut out for boxing, the 5’11”, 415 pound Butterbean found his niche fighting in the Toughman circuit, where he compiled a 56-5 career record. He also dabbled in boxing a little bit, most notably when he fought, and lost to, Larry Holmes in 2002. Somehow he still managed to rack up 77 wins to go with 7 losses and 4 draws. He even had a son, Babybean, who became a boxer. Last October, he announced his retirement from boxing, but continues to fight in mixed martial arts circuits. These days, Butterbean is residing in Jasper, Alabama, where he owns his own restaurant, Mr. Bean BBQ.
