Bangor, Maine (December 7, 2018) – New England Fights (NEF) will hold its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 37: Sub Zero," on Friday, February 1, 2019 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.  Earlier today, the promotion announced the addition of an amateur heavyweight bout to the card.  Bryce Bamford (2-0) is scheduled to take on Roger Ewer (1-0).

 It has been nearly three years since the last time Bryce Bamford stepped into the NEF cage.  The 43-year-old has stopped both of his previous opponents in the first round.  Bamford trains with First Class MMA based in Brunswick, Maine and is looking forward to returning to the cage to compete once again in front of his many friends and fans.  He is the training partner of former NEF Amateur Heavyweight Champion Nick Gulliver (4-1).

 “I’m looking forward to stepping back in the NEF cage," said Bamford. "I’m coming ready for a hard fight.”

 Roger Ewer, a pharmacist by day, will enter the NEF cage for the second time as an amateur.  He debuted in Bangor in August 2017 with a second-round technical knockout victory.  Ewer is a member of Young's MMA.  "NEF 37" will mark the second time that he has competed on the same card as his brother, and reigning NEF Professional Middleweight Champion, CJ Ewer (3-2).

“I am extremely eager to step into the cage on February 1st," said Ewer. "I’ve been hard at work in the gym preparing and I am looking forward to facing this opponent. I am honored to represent Young’s MMA in the cage and fighting on the same card as CJ again. I love the energy of the hometown crowd and I know it’s going be one hell of a night”

NEF's next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 37: SUB ZERO," will take place on Friday, February 1, 2019 at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine with a bell time of 8 pm.  Tickets are on-sale now at
