Boxing for a cause at Notre Dame

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --Do you have what it takes to work out like a champion?

Tuesday, dozens of Irish fans hit the ropes.

Boxing champion and Notre Dame Graduate, Mike Lee held a free workout session at The Purcell Pavilion.

On Friday, Lee will participate in the first ever professional boxing match at the university.

Lee says that it was his dream to attend Notre Dame and that now it’s his chance to give back.

Lee says, “This boxing event is going to two great causes; that I get to fight here at a school and a community that did so much for me and give back at the same time means the world to me.”

Lee graduated from Notre Dame in 2009 and won the school’s Bengal Bouts Boxing Tournament three years in a row.

Lee was also Chicago’s Golden Gloves Champion.

The fight is Friday, September 16, at the Joyce Center.

Tickets are still available, and all the money raised will go to the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation and The Robinson Community Learning Center in South Bend.
