Arild Haugen

Arild "Hulk" Haugen (born 30 December 1985) is a former strongman and currently a professional boxer from Sirdal, Norway. He set the Guinness World Record for being the youngest WSM competitor.[1] He currently lives in Sandnes, Rogaland.[2]

Haugen stands 1.89 m (6 ft 2 in) tall and weighs approximately 118 kilograms (260 lb).[citation needed] He was capable of squatting 370 kilograms (820 lb), a deadlift of 400 kilograms (880 lb), and a bench press of 250 kilograms (550 lb).[3] It was suggested that Haugen has much potential, and in future strongman competitions would rival the impressive records set by Mariusz Pudzianowski. However Haugen has now retired from strongman, to seek a future in boxing.

Haugen's first career fight was on 11 December 2009 against Latvian Pāvels Dolgovs. Haugen won by knockout 45 seconds into the first round.[4] He officially became a member of TreyWay Maudland after his first fight.
