The 87th Annual Bengal Bouts tournament, hosted by University of Notre Dame Club Boxing, has progressed into the semifinals, which will take place Monday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. inside the Joyce Center. The Finals are set for Friday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at Purcell Pavilion.
Nearly 200 young men across nine different weight classes have come together for Bengal Bouts, the second half of a unique Notre Dame tradition. Every dollar of the proceeds from the tournament is sent to missions in Bangladesh run by the Congregation of Holy Cross, the order which runs the University. During the fall semester, the women’s boxing club competed in Baraka Bouts, a tournament of similar format, in which the proceeds went to Holy Cross missions in East Africa.
