📰 NEWS--📰 PETERS AND DAVIS SET FOR WELTERWEIGHT SHOWDOWN AT NEF 48



[NEF PRESS RELEASE]

Portland, Maine (July 3, 2022) – New England Fights (NEF) returns with its next mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event “NEF 48: Heatwave” on Saturday, July 30, 2022, at the Rink at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Maine.  The event will be NEF’s first outdoor event since “NEF 8” in 2013.  Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the addition of an amateur welterweight bout to the card.  Joe Peters (1-1) will take on Ed Davis (0-0) at a weight of 170 pounds.

 Joe Peters made his combat sports debut last fall in a kickboxing bout in New Hampshire with a win by technical knockout.  After losing his first MMA bout on a fight card in Massachusetts earlier in the spring, Peters got back on the winning track in May at “NEF 47” in Auburn, Maine when he defeated Bryant Wade (1-1) by technical knockout in the third round.  He currently represents Karasu Tengu Academy (KTA) based in Nashua, New Hampshire.  The fight will be Peters first at the welterweight limit as his two previous MMA bouts were contested in the 185-pound middleweight division.

 “I’m excited to represent as I always do for KTA,” exclaimed Peters. “I love competing for NEF and to be outside in the cage this time sounds epic. I’m just happy to do what I love. I know my opponent’s gym, they’re a solid team. I expect a good, entertaining fight and am ready for whatever.  Let’s do this mane!”

 Ed Davis will make his amateur debut at “NEF 48” in the fight with Peters.  Davis will be looking for a measure of revenge of sorts as it was Peters who downed his teammate Bryan Wade last May at “NEF 47,” handing Wade his first loss.  Davis represents Titan Athletics based in Brewer, Maine. 

 “I am so excited to make my NEF debut at Thompson’s Point! I am also excited to have my debut against a game opponent like Joe, kid is tough and likes to scrap! Hopefully we can give the fans an absolute banger and shoot for fight of the night! Also a huge shoutout to my coach and team as we prep for war!”

 “NEF 48: Heatwave” takes place on July 30, 2022, at the Rink at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Maine.  Tickets for the event are on sale now at www.NewEnglandFights.com/Tickets/.  The event will be the promotion’s first in the outdoors since 2013.
