--THE WRAP UP--

What an action packed night of fights that NEF brought to a sold out crowd. The production was very well done and the event went smoothly. My only complaint is that there were so many fights the show was very long.  The highlights for me was Glory Watson's come from behind win against Hilarie Rose and the main event war between Bruce Boyington and Ross Dannar.  I was skeptical about this fight as I thought Boyington would dominate but Dannar brought it and held his own.  Very huge and impressive win for him so congrats.  NEF returns with their 52nd event to date on May 13th in Portland Maine at Club Aura.  Shoutout to NEF for putting on another awesome event and stay right here for more fight news.
