11th Annual Baraka Bouts
Notre Dame Women's Boxing
Notre Dame Joyce Center
Monday, November 11 6:00pm-10:00pm
The women's boxing team is in its 15th season at the University of Notre Dame. This November will be the 11th Annual Baraka Bouts, a boxing tournament held to raise money for the Holy Cross Missions in East Africa. The name comes from the Swahili word for blessing, "baraka."
The women start training at the beginning of the fall semester and participate in an intense training program that culminates with Baraka Bouts. Last year we raised $25,000, and we are hoping to break that record this year.
This year, Baraka Bouts will take place on November 11th and 14th. Semifinals will begin on Monday, November 11th at 6pm. Finals will follow on Thursday, November 14th at 7pm.
