NEF “Fight Night V” Preview: Fight Card Set for Nov. 17 Show in Lewiston, ME

This week, New England Fights! (NEF) released its full fight card for its Nov. 17 show in Lewiston, ME.

“Fight Night V” will be held at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee and will feature five professional bouts as well as 16 amatuer battles.  Headlining the night’s event will be a bantamweight title fight between two of Maine’s own as Paul Gorman of the Academy of Mixed Martial Arts takes on Havoc’s Adam Toussaint.

“NEF has garnered a reputation for providing its fans with an unmatched quality of entertainment,” stated NEF co-owner and promoter Nick DiSalvo in a recent press release.  “When our fans buy a ticket and come to the Colisee they expect to be treated to several hours of knock-outs, submissions, and great fights.  That is what we strive to put together for them, and we do it at very reasonable ticket prices.”

According to NEF officials, the New England-based promotion has garnered wide-spread success, averaging around 3,000 fans per show, which is pretty amazing for a local promotion.  Let’s see if they can pull some more big numbers when the return to action later this month.
