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.citation neededAfter four victories over marginal competition, Bean secured 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.citation needed 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.
