Synopsis:'Strong bodies fight, that weak bodies may be nourished.' This is the motto of the Notre Dame Boxing Team, which annually hosts an intramural charity tournament called 'The Bengal Bouts' to support development efforts in the poverty-stricken country of Bangladesh. Founded by legendary football coach Knute Rockne in 1931 and perpetuated by 80 years of blood, sweat, and tears, the Bengal Bouts represent a sacred Notre Dame tradition of dedicated students lacing up their gloves in a fight much larger than the ring in which they box. Now 80 years in the making, the unique story of Strong Bodies Fight will take you on an inspirational journey to a world of poverty seldom seen in films or media - a world of hope.
