Millville middleweight Ismael Garcia is still undefeated.

Garcia (5-0, 2 KOs) scored a sixth-round knockout over Trenton's Alando Swain (5-3, 1 KO) Saturday night at Bally's Atlantic City.

Garcia, 26, was fighting in place of Millville's Thomas LaManna, who was forced to withdraw after suffering a hand injury while training.

Another local fighter, Mays Landing lightweight Sidell Blocker (1-6-1) did not fare as well Saturday. Blocker, who was returning from a two-year layoff, suffered a first-round knockout loss to Sultahn Staton (2-0, 2 KOs), of Philadelphia.

In Saturday's main event, Philadelphia junior lightweight Teon Kennedy (18-2-2, 7 KOs) earned a 10-round, unanimous decision over Newark's Carlos Vinan (10-10-5, 2 KOs).
