Brady Haugen, son of former world champion boxer Greg Haugen, will make his professional debut Saturday night in hometown Auburn.

The 21-year-old prodigy is scheduled to face Aaron Schupp in a four-round bout between welterweights at Vision Quest Sport and Fitness Center, located inside the SuperMall.

Brady Haugen, who is attending Green River Community College, was 2-1 as an amateur fighter while training under the guidance of his father, a former four-time world champion who now trains and promotes fighters.

The Haugen-Schupp battle is one of eight scheduled on the card, which will begin at 7 p.m.

The card, Valley Vengeance I, will feature a main event between undefeated heavyweight Jonte "Rocky Steady" Willis and Denver's Corey Williams in a scheduled six-round bout.

The undercard includes a four-round matchup between North Bend's Mike Gavronski and Michael Birthmark.

The fight night is being presented by Haugen Cintron Canin Promotions.
