DAVAO CITY--James "Bring Home the" Bacon of Mandaue City, Cebu will fight Darragh Foley of Ireland on Nov. 16 at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
The 29-year-old Bacon (23W-3L-OD, 15KO) has won three times since his comeback this year.
He first retired Richard Betos of Surigao in the 3rd round last Feb. 13 in Maguindanao.
