NEF 39 LIVE REVIEW 6/22/2019

Image may contain: 4 people, people standing and text

We are live here at New England Fights.  They have a total of 15 fights in which two of them are professional bouts.  They did lose the main event due to a tough weight cut by Josh Harvey.  We wish him the best in healing up.  Also on the card will be 1 amateur title fight.  The Boucher/Presley fight was changed to a non-title fight due to weight issues.  Pete Czymbor will be host of the night and the refs are Alan Lau and Steve Rita.  The ring girls are the beautiful Veayo twins.  The national anthem has been sung and the fights are about to begin.  During intermission tonight there will be a wedding which will be a first for me to see in the cage.  Another nice touch I want to mention is when the fighters walk out the lights are either blue or red depending on their corner.
