    After Knute Rockne organized Notre Dame’s boxing program in 1920, the first official bouts were held in 1930. Now in its 90th year, the Bengal Bouts has donated over $2 million dollars to the Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh. The funds raised by the club have built primary and technical schools as well as health care clinics. They have paid for impoverished high school and college students’ education, providing young men and women skills to support their families.

    Boxers join the club for a variety of reasons: they get a good sweat, develop as athletes, and meet some of their best friends. But, perhaps most importantly, every Bengal Bouts student is connected through our overarching mission in Bangladesh. Our students, with the privilege of a Catholic education, humbly fight for students across the world. In the words of legendary Bengal Bouts coach Dominic “Nappy” Napolitano:

    “Strong Bodies Fight, That Weak Bodies May Be Nourished.”
