LINCOLN, Rhode Island - Later this summer, many of Bangor's best MMA fighters will be competing in front of their home crowd as NEF comes to the area. However, another local star will be taking his talents out of state right around that same time.

Bruce Boyington has agreed to fight this August in CES 45 in Rhode Island. The lightweight bout against Nate Andrews will be his debut for the promotion.

While this marks Boyington's first fight with Classic Entertainment and Sports, it is the latest in a wide-ranging career across the Northeast and beyond.

Boyington, 14-10 in his career, shined in NEF for a time, and eventually he earned a four-fight contract with World Series of Fighting. In the past year, Boyington has fought in Russia and at Madison Square Garden. His last competition came once again in NEF, as he fought a boxing match that resulted in a no-decision after both fighters were cut by an incidental headbutt.

CES 45 is scheduled for August 11 at Twin River Casino. His opponent Andrews is 10-1 in his career.
