Boxing legend Eric Esch underwent a stunning body transformation a few years ago and still looks gorgeous.
The 57-year-old, nicknamed “Butterbean,” underwent a grueling two-year transformation into a changed man thanks to an active training regimen.
The boxing icon revealed in an Instagram post earlier this week that he had dropped from 515 pounds to 300 pounds in two years.
Butterbean shared that he received support on his weight loss journey from former WWE star Diamond Dallas Page.
Page has helped several former fighters regain their fitness.
Butterbean was a star in the 1990s and early 2000s and one of the most famous boxers in the world.
He defeated Ed White to win the 1997 IBA Super Heavyweight Championship, which he successfully defended five times before losing the belt in 2000.
Butterbean has attended various events and has appeared in numerous things.
In 1999, he appeared at WrestleMania and KO’d Bart Gunn in an actual unscripted match.
He appeared in the famous film Jackaas* where he boxed star Johnny Knoxville and knocked him unconscious.
Butterbean’s last fight came in 2013 when he was forced to retire due to a shoulder injury while weighing over 400 pounds.
Last year, however, Butterbean Butterbean decided to take part in Page’s reality TV show Change Or Die, which helps contestants lose weight.
Butterbean went on the show and has since lost weight. The former pro now weighed nearly 300lbs – 200lbs lighter than his peak weight of 513.
The 77-10 fighter revealed to The Sun that his weight made him feel depressed.
“I went through a phase where I was looking at the end of my life — not that I was going to kill myself.”
“But I felt bad. I was way overweight and just felt down.”
But now the veteran power-puncher has eyes on a return and is poised to return to the ring against either Mike Tyson or Jake Paul.
“I’m not a typical boxer. I go out to fight. I want to KO someone. Jake Paul or Mike Tyson.”
“Jake Paul talks too much. He’s never fought anyone. I would like to fight him.”
