Mike Broghammer Wins Semi-Finals Bout!

Former Notre Dame scholarship basketball player Mike Broghammer -- won his semi-final fight, this evening, in the heavyweight division of the BENGAL BOUTS.  Broghammer -- who joined the Notre Dame Boxing Club when a chronic injury would not allow him to continue playing basketball for the IRISH -- won a 2nd round TKO over Sean "Too Tall" Lischke - a grad student here at ND -- to advance to Friday night's finals at Purcell Pavilion.

Notre Dame head basketball coach Mike Brey was in attendance along with a number of his former teammates -- you'll see how excited Coach Brey gets when Broghammer knocked down Lischke for the first time in the 2nd round.
