NOW: Following “Heavyweight fight“, local boxers talk Fighting Irish football

Notre Dame head football coach Marcus Freeman said the team's matchup with Clemson would be a "heavyweight fight".

It ended up being a knockout; with the Irish beating the Tigers, 35-14

So ABC57 stopped by Brothers Boxing and Fitness in Elkhart to talk to some real boxers about the season. 

While Notre Dame has taken its fair share of hits, amateur boxer Christian Rodriguez likes the fight he's seeing in the Irish. 

"It does feel like a different season [after the Clemson game]," Rodriguez said. "It feels like they've got a lot more in their toolbelt they can use. I feel like they're playing a lot better as a team."

If Notre Dame beats Navy on Saturday, it will be the first four-game win streak of the season and Marcus Freeman's head coaching career.
