Butterbean destroys Siciliano!

By Peter Mark Heintzelman

417 pound heavyweight Eric "Butterbean" Esch (77-7-4, 58 KOs) demolished local hero Joe Siciliano (4-4) on Friday night at the Palladium in Worcester, Mass. Esch floored the 49-year-old, 313 pound Siciliano in round one and three times in round two before Siciliano's corner threw in the the towel after 1:10 of round two. Butterbean was in command the whole match.

Earlier, Esch's 21-year-old, 289 pound son Brandon "Babybean" Esch was knocked out cold at 2:00 of round one in his pro debut by Matt Eckerle, as the concerned senior 'Bean looked on. Babybean was down for about ten minutes as paramedics administered oxygen, but happily he walked out of the ring under his own power.
