Posted

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. — Middleweight Cris Mims has agreed to a multi-fight contract with Lion Fight Promotions. The Foley-based athlete, who trains at Roufusport Martial Arts Academy (Foley) made his professional debut at Lion Fight 38 Sept. 29 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., and rose to the occasion while taking on local fan favorite Brian Bogue.

“I’m very excited to sign with Lion Fight,” said Mims, who might have to consider changing his nickname from ‘The Golden Leg’ to ‘The Electric Elbow.’

“I look forward to showcasing myself and growing my skills on these amazing shows.”

All scheduled Lion Fights are to be televised on ASX TV. For more information on Roufusport gym in Foley, visit: Facebook.com/RoufusportFoley.

Lion Fight returns on Saturday, November 18th as the promotion debuts in England with partner Muay Thai Grand Prix for Lion Fight 39 live from The Indigo at O2 Arena in London.
