FEATHERWEIGHT BATTLE ADDED TO NEF XVIII FIGHT CARD

[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (May 21, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, will hold its eighteenth mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, "NEF XVIII: MADE IN AMERICA," on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine.   Earlier today, the promotion announced the addition of an amateur featherweight bout to the fight card.  The matchup will feature Jeremy Tyler (4-3) facing Johnny Crafts (3-0) at the featherweight limit of 145-pounds.

Jeremy Tyler will be making his return to the NEF cage after an extended absence of nine months.  A member of Marcus Davis's famed Team Irish gym in Brewer, Maine, Tyler will look to rebound from the first back-to-back losses of his career.  Both of those losses came to Central Maine Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (CMBJJ) competitors.  It is a gym affiliated with Johnny Crafts' team New England United (NEU), so the June 13 fight will be an opportunity for Jeremy to gain a measure of revenge as well.  Like his opponent at "NEF XVIII," Tyler has proven himself a submission specialist with all four of his victories coming by way of capitulation.

NEW ENGLAND FIGHTS ANNOUNCES FULL NEF XVIII FIGHT CARD

[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (May 19, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, will hold its eighteenth mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, "NEF XVIII: MADE IN AMERICA," on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine.   Earlier today, the promotion announced the full fight card for the event.

In a highly-anticipated rematch, NEF MMA Professional Lightweight Champion Bruce "Pretty Boy" Boyington (10-8) takes on rival John "First Class" Raio (2-7) in a non-title catchweight contest.  Raio scored a victory over Boyington by rear-naked choke in their initial meeting in February 2014.  That win, however, was marred in controversy as Boyington contends the referee mistook his wave to his fans in the crowd as a sign of submission.  Regardless, Boyington and Raio will look to settle the score on June 13 in Lewiston.

NEF homegrown talent, and 2014 "Fighter of the Year," Crowsneck Boutin (0-0) will debut in the professional ranks against "The Junkyard Dog" Ryan Cowette (2-2) in a middleweight bout.  Boutin has developed over the course of three years from a street brawler to a well-disciplined martial artist.  Cowette is the head coach of MMA Athletix and the preacher of Victory Church in Bath, Maine.
