I've never been a huge fan of boxing as a whole. But, I do like certain fighters and will watch when one of my faves in on TV.
Butterbean has always been a huge figure in boxing, and I've always enjoyed watching him fight. He has since added kickboxing and mixed martial arts to his resume and is actually pretty good for a big guy.
He was promoting an upcoming event, so he came by the studio to hype it up. I didn't get the chance to do the live interview, but afterwords, I definitley wanted to throw a question or two his way.
As a longtime WWE wrestling fan, I wanted to ask him about his appearance at Wrestlemania where he was involved in a legit boxing match.
We posed for a photo (by the way, this dude is freakin' huge in person!), and I asked him a question.
"What did you think after knocking out Bart Gunn in 27 seconds?", I asked.
"It was fun," he said.
And that's really all he said about that. Really soft-spoken and not too talkative, but Butterbean was friendly enough to make a good impression on me.
