Newark, NJ / Manchester, NH (November 22nd 2021)--Five fighters from the DKO Management stable all came out victorious with four knockouts in Newark, New Jersey and a unanimous decision in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Figueroa stopped Arsenio Hall at 39 seconds of round two. Figueroa dropped Hall twice in the opening round, and dropped Hall for a third and the fight was stopped.
Figueroa of New Haven, Connecticut is now 9-0 with six knockouts. Hall was stopped for the first time and is now 3-5.
Foster moved to 13-0 with nine knockouts by taking out Pedro Hernandez in the opening round. Foster scored one knockdown, and the New Haven native will look for a high profile fight in the beginning of 2022.
