TYSON MASHED BUTTERBEAN IN TWO ROUNDS TO PROGRESS TO EWBSS SEMI-FINAL
Thu, 26 Mar 2020
Mike Tyson lived up to his moniker of the ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ in Wednesday’s hotly-anticipated ‘eWBSS Heavyweight Legends’ quarter-final against Eric ‘Butterbean’ Esch as he stopped his opponent in two brutal rounds.
Watch the full fight here.
The bout, simulated on EA Sports ‘Fight Night Champion’, saw the eSport’s version of ‘Iron’ Mike Mike charging at Butterbean on the opening bell and hitting him twice with enough power for the referee to step in and count.
Butterbean, known as ‘The King of the 4 Rounders’, did manage to counter a few times in the opening round, but never effective enough to shake the favourite.
Tyson closed the show early in the second round as he threw a brutal left-right combo that dropped Butterbean, who was unable to beat the count. Tyson, the tournament number 2 seed, progresses to the semi-final on Saturday against either George Foreman or David Haye.
George Foreman faces David Haye on Thursday, March 26 at 5pm (GMT) in the fourth of the quarter-finals of the ‘eWBSS Heavyweight Legends’ tournament simulated on EA Sports ‘Fight Night Champion’.
The ‘eWBSS Heavyweight Legends’ tournament began on Monday, March 23, and there will be a live-streamed fight every night until the final on Sunday, March 29. The entire ‘eWBSS Heavyweight Legends’ tournament will be streamed on the World Boxing Super Series Facebook page at 5pm (GMT) every day.
The tournament, simulated on EA Sports ‘Fight Night Champion’, is created to provide some much-needed relief and entertainment for fight fans around the world during these testing times.

QF4 – George Foreman vs David Haye – Thurs, March 26
SF1 – Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier – Fri, March 27
