Butterbean weighs in at 417.5!

Esch, Siciliano combine for 731 lbs...

The scale utilized by the other fighters could only measure up to 350 pounds, so an industrial sized scale was brought in for Eric "Butterbean" Esch at today's weigh-in at Union Station in Worcester, Massachusetts. Butterbean weighed in at a career-high 417.5 pounds for Friday's clash with Joe Siciliano, who scaled in at a hefty 313.5 pounds. It will be a combined 731 pounds of flesh in a specially reinforced ring at the Palladium, which is believed to be the all-time record for a boxing match.

Eric "Butterbean" Esch 417.5 vs Joe Siciliano 313.5
