Would you take a few punches to the face if it were for a good cause? Almost 100 guys were doing just that Wednesday night at Notre Dame, and it's part of a decades old tradition. This is the 83rd year of the Bengal Bouts. It raises money for the Holy Cross Mission in Bangladesh.
The motto of these bouts is "Strong bodies fight, that weak bodies may be nourished." The money raised from these boxing matches goes to Bangladesh for schools, health care clinics and more.
