[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (September 15, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, will hold its next event, "NEF XX: A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE" on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine.  The event will feature a first for Maine - mixed-martial-arts (MMA) bouts and professional boxing bouts on the same event with an MMA cage and a boxing ring set up side-by-side.  As announced this past Saturday night at "NEF XIX," the MMA portion of the card is scheduled to feature an amateur strawweight women's bout between Randi Beth Boyington (1-1) and Erin "Fun Size" Lamonte (3-0).

Boyington is the wife of reigning NEF MMA Professional Lightweight Champion Bruce "Pretty Boy" Boyington (10-8) who will also be in action on the November 21 card.  Randi made her cage debut this past spring defeating Alex Walker (0-1) via unanimous decision at "NEF XVII."  The crowd in the Colisée was on fire as the bout went back and forth through three hard-fought rounds.  Randi trains under her husband at Boyington's Taekwondo Academy, as well as at Young's MMA in Bangor, Maine.

"I'm excited to be stepping back into the cage in November - it's something I'm looking forward to," said Randi Beth Boyington when reached for comment.  "I'm expecting Erin to be a tough opponent, and I'm training as such.  I never underestimate someone's ability.  I know what I'm bringing to the cage as well and NEF fans will be impressed in November.  Fighting on the same night as my husband is a bonus.  We're both hungry to have our hands raised at the end of our fights.  I don't think many others could understand or appreciate the emotions that a couple share until they go through a training camp to fight on the same card."

Erin Lamonte is not a stranger to the NEF cage.  She appeared for the promotion in early 2013, defeating Angela Theriault (0-1) via first round technical knockout (TKO).  Lamonte was victorious twice more that year before taking time off from competing to have a baby with her husband Casey.  Returning to the cage on November 21, it will have been nearly two years since the undefeated Lamonte won her last bout on a fight card in West Virginia.  She has been eager to return to action for some time.

"I am extremely excited to finally be back in cage on November 21st, fighting Randi Beth Boyington," stated Lamonte.  "After a lengthy time off due to the birth of our son, I am itching to get back to training and competing.  Time to prove that the new and improved mama Fun Size can still kick ass.  After all, the mother lioness is one of the most ferocious and feared in the animal kingdom."

New England Fights' next event, "NEF XX: A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE," takes place on November 21, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine.  The event will mark the first time in Maine history a mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event and a professional boxing event have taken place together on the same show.  Tickets for "NEF XX" start at just $25 and are on sale now at or by calling the Colisée box office at 207.783.2009 x 525.  For more information on the event and fight card updates, please visit the promotion’s website at  In addition, you can watch NEF videos at, follow them on Twitter @nefights and join the official Facebook group “New England Fights.”
