    Default Mitch "Blood" Green calls out Eric "Butterbean" Esch

    Ah, I love boxing

    www.fightnews.com

    In an offbeat piece of news, colorful former heavyweight contender Mitch “Blood” Green, 19-6-1 (12 KOs), has issued a strong challenge to boxing’s “King of the Four Rounders,” Eric “Butterbean” Esch, 72-7-4 (54 KOs), to face him in a Green/Bean showdown. "I want Limabean! I call him Limabean because I eat Limabeans and when I fight that big bean, I'll eat him up,” exclaimed Green. Currently riding a two-fight winning streak, including a KO 4 over Billy Mitchem last August, Green says despite his 49 years, he is ready to go when Butterbean is. "I'm doing well. I got a security job at a nightclub. Gerry Cooney and F.I.S.T. helped me get my license. I still lift weights and shadowbox every day. I'm in good shape and could fight on a day’s notice. I want it so bad, I can taste Limabean on my tongue when I get up in the morning." After suffering through a rough few fights, Butterbean seems to have righted his ship with first an MMA victory over well-respected contender Wesley “Cabbage” Correira and then in boxing, a decision victory over formerly undefeated Dan White in Kalamazoo, Michigan on Saturday night.

    On a more serious note, I do actually think what Cooney is doing is a good thing

    apparently finding retired boxers who are on hard times jobs, at least as far as I know, I didn't really like him as a fighter but he seems to be doing good things now

    Mitch Green has a screw loose but I sort of like him anyway. There's a kind of unassuming blue collar quality to his remarks. Butterbean is so slow and horribly fat these days that I would bet on Michael Carbajal coming out of retirement to outpoint him. It would be the only fight on record in which 1 fighter was 3 times as heavy as his opponent. . Could Green do it? I guess so, but believe me, he's no Archie Moore at 49 years old. Who on earth would want to watch such a sorry spectacle?

    I remember hearing that he was involved with gangs for awhile, well before his fight with Tyson though. I also remember watching the Tyson-Green fight in which all Green did the whole fight was throw a bunch of weak jabs which mostly missed, and hold Tyson on the inside whenever Tyson got close enough to punch. When it was over Sugar Ray Leonard said "I was very disappointed in Mitch Green's performance. All he did the whole fight was hold." I suppose that Green's been asked a million times about the fight and his claim to fame is that he went the distance with Tyson, losing every round though.

    In all honesty...I can't believe that people actually still pay to watch Butterbean in the ring.

    Really.

    Yes.Mitch "BLOOD :P" Green was quite the gangster. He was supposedly king of the street gangs in some part of NY, and Tyson had been affiliated with other gangs in Brooklyn.. Basically, it would be a good bet most of the crowd that night weren't choir boys.

    Does anyone remember a few years after the Green-Tyson fight, Green confronted Tyson outside a night club, and Tyson broke his face with one punch. Green didn't look so "Gangsta" then.

    As for Butterbean, I thought he said he would retire and never fight again if Holmes{at 100 yrs old} beat him, and Holmes did.

    As a matter of fact it was Tyson who broke a bone in his hand and he had to postpone a scheduled fight

    Then Tyson kicked his ass in a street fight
