FIGHT ADDED TO NEF XVII CARD WILL FEATURE LONG-AWAITED RETURN

[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (March 24, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine on April 11, 2015 with its seventeenth mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event.  NEF released the full fight card for the event last week.  Earlier today, the company announced the addition of an amateur catchweight bout to the fight card.  CJ Ewer (3-1) will face Connor "Bare Knuckle" Barry (4-1) at a fight weight of 165-pounds.

Ewer, a member of Young's MMA in Bangor, Maine, took the NEF MMA amateur ranks by storm in the summer of 2013.  In the matter of just ten weeks, Ewer chalked up three victories, the last of which was over veteran Crowsneck Boutin (6-7).  His streak was brought to a halt by the tough Wayne Ahlquist (1-1) later that fall.  Ewer would take more than a year off to serve his country in the United States Air Force security forces.  Now back home and training with his teammates at Young's, Ewer looks forward to testing himself once again in the NEF MMA cage.

"I'm very anxious to get back to competing within NEF after being away for almost a year and a half," said Ewer.  "And I'm thankful Young's welcomed me back and took the time to train me.  Connor looks like a very tough opponent, and it'll be a great test for me."

Connor Barry is an independent fighter currently based out of Lowell, Massachusetts.  Barry has become known as a "finisher" in the region, having defeated three of his opponents via technical knockout (TKO) and one via submission.  His only loss to date came by judge's decision.  Already having put in two fight camps for a planned pro-debut that never happened, Barry is confident that he is in the best shape of his career and will have a successful NEF debut at Ewer's expense.

FIGHT CARD ANNOUNCED FOR APRIL 11 NEF MMA EVENT IN LEWISTON



Lewiston, Maine (March 18, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine on April 11, 2015 with its seventeenth mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event.  Earlier today, the company announced the full fight card for the event.  The card is scheduled to feature a full slate of both professional and amateur bouts.  NEF executives report that fan reaction to the matchups already announced has been overwhelmingly positive.

"I can't remember having this kind of response to a fight card before," said NEF co-owner and promoter Nick DiSalvo.  "There has been so much excitement over every fight we've announced.  We sold out of all cage-side tickets four weeks prior to the event, and the general admission are very close to being gone.  We've never seen that happen so early before.  It really says something about the quality of the product we're putting on here in Lewiston.  There's no doubt NEF is the hottest ticket in town."
