Vaughn Bean (born September 3, 1974) is an American former professional boxer. Nicknamed "Shake & Bake", Bean is known for making several challenges for world heavyweight titles, each time coming up short.
Bean began his career with 27 victories over extremely limited competition, lining up a shot at IBF Heavyweight title holder Michael Moorer in 1997. At the time, Bean was a virtual unknown to the boxing public but put up a good effort against an unmotivated Moorer, losing a close majority decision.
After four victories over marginal competition, Bean secured yet another title shot against Evander Holyfield for the WBA and IBF Heavyweight titles. Bean again lost the decision, a boring fight which left the boxing public wondering how Bean had managed to get the shot in the first place. Bean again went on another synthetic winning streak, pounding out 11 consecutive wins over virtual unknowns. Yet again, he secured another major fight, this time against Vitali Klitschko. Klitchko controlled the fight, and took out the durable Bean via a TKO in the 11th round.
In 2004, Bean dropped decisions to Tony Thompson and Yanqui Diaz. In 2005, he dropped a decision to rising star Alexander Dimitrenko. He resides in Coralville, IA. He now reside in Chicago, Il. Vaughn Bean is looking to take another fight one last time to tell his story.
