The fight headlined a card that was promoted by Joey Eye Boxing Promotions, XFE and Peltz Boxing.
About forty-five seconds into the bout, Dawejko dropped Banks with a hard left hook.  Banks was clearly hurt and went down again from two more lefts.  Dawejko clearly smelled blood and put Banks out of his misery with two more lefts and Banks went down for a 3rd and final time.

The win ups the 24 year-old’s record to 12-3-2 with five knockouts.
“I thought I put on a great performance.  I knew he was tough but I knew when i hit him with the first shot that I had him,”said Dawejko.
“I feel like I am back on track and ready to great things.”
“I want to thank my manager Mark Cipparone and Club 1957 Management and my promoter Russell Peltz.”, finished Dawejko
“I am excited not only about the win but how Joey has set himself up each time to get those amazing 1rd KO’s.  I believe that when a fighter with talent such as Joey decides to truly do what it takes and put his boxing career above all amazing things seem to happen! That being said I am extra proud to be a part of his team as every piece of this has been coming  together rather seamlessly.  So hats off to head Coach Billy Briscoe, strength trainer Jermaine Clarke and Joey’s brother Walt for they too have contributed to this great victory!”, said Mark Cipparone of Club 1957 Management.
