Knockout Promotions, LLC is a full-service boxing promotions and event marketing company. Located in Little Falls, NJ, the Darwish Brothers Wally and Hani founded the company in April 2003. The Darwish Brothers previously established Knockout Management, where they guided the careers of 1996 US Olympic gold medalist David Reid and title contender Omar Sheika, among others. They have since shifted their attention to staging their own events and have promoted many shows in the New Jersey area.

"As a boxing fan myself, I understand that what the audience appreciates are tough, entertaining fights," says Wally Darwish. "We want to put on 'fight fans fights.' We have a reputation for matching boxers evenly. You don't come on our shows to just get a win, you earn it."

"Boxing is in our hearts," Hani Darwish says. "We take great pride in making competitive fights from top to bottom on our shows. While most promoters try to protect their fighters with easy bouts, that's not our agenda. We have no interest in the winner or the loser, our agenda is pleasing the fans."
