Former Notre Dame Bengal Bout boxing champion Mike Lee will feature in the Main Event of “Fight Like a Champion,” a professional boxing event at the University of Notre Dame to be held this Friday, Sept. 16 benefitting a pair of Notre Dame charities.
All profits from this special evening of professional boxing held at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center (basketball arena) will be donated to two charities associated with Notre Dame — the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation and the Robinson Community Learning Center in South Bend.
Presented by Top Rank Incorporated and The Mike Lee Foundation, “Fight Like a Champion” will be held this Friday night before the Fighting Irish football team battles the Michigan State Spartans at Notre Dame Stadium.
The 24-year-old Lee, a native of Wheaton, Ill., graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2009, earning a finance degree from the Mendoza School of Business while finishing at the top of his class.
While at Notre Dame, Lee was a three-time Bengal Bouts school boxing champion and also won the Chicago Golden Gloves in 2009.
Since turning professional in May 2010, Lee has thrilled sports fans across the country with his power and stunning knockouts, battling to a record of 6-0-0 with four knockouts while performing in front of huge crowds of alums and friends of Notre Dame.
