But Haugen liked to sometimes back up as he countered so he would not walk into a punch, so the left hook was a nice punch so he could back up and counter. I remember a name Charlie Brown which Haugen fought, but I could be wrong. in the 1980s before he fought Jimmy Paul in late 1986. I think he stopped Brown with a left hook.
He did that all night long in beating Jimmy Paul. Excedllent performance. It should have told everyone that Haugen was a smart fighter who could box, and wasn't the "Alaskan toughman slugger" that he was always described as being.

I was shocked when he beat Paul. No one gave him a chance, and that was seen as just a workout defense by Paul. As it turned out you are right, Haugen was a very good fighter. Haugen surprised me a few times.
