NEF put on another solid show.  The action was not stop and they just kept he fights coming.  There was only 2 fights out of the 16 that went the distance.  If you love finishes like I do then you weren't disappointed!  NEF also announced an upcoming title fight which was between Key Baltazar and Nate Dorr.  They will be fighting on the next NEF show which will be on February 11th in Bangor Maine.  It is rumoring that Bruce Boyington and Glory Watson will also be on that card so it will most likely be another Banger in Bangor!  Special thanks to NEF for allowing us to cover the fight for everyone and thanks for reading all you fight fans.
