Eric Scott Esch (born August 3, 1966) is an American heavyweight boxer, kickboxer and mixed martial artist commonly referred to as Butterbean.
He is the former IBA Super-Heavyweight Champion and also held the WAA Heavyweight title. Esch's round body, bald head and vicious scowl make him a menacing (yet highly entertaining) fight figure, along with the American flag trunks he often sports. His combined professional fight record currently stands at 95 wins with 65 knockouts, 19 losses and 5 draws. Butterbean currently resides in Jasper, Alabama where he owns a restaurant, "Mr Bean BBQ".
