DAVAO CITY – Welterweight Jameson “Bring Home the” Bacon of Cebu will again see action on Nov. 20 at the Manual Artime Community Center Theater in Miami, Florida, USA.

Bacon, who made a US successful debut last October, will be facing southpaw Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis of Lancaster, California.

The 34-year old veteran Pendarvis (21W-6L-2D, 9KO) recently lost to Francisco Emanuel Torres of Argentina by a unanimous decision for the vacant World Boxing Association Fedecaribe super welterweight title last Aug. 15, 2020, in the Ocean Center, Daytona Beach, Florida.

The 30-year old Bacon (24W-4L-0D, 16KO), on the other hand, successfully made a grand debut by knocking out Gonzalo Carlos Dallera of Argentina in the 2nd round last Oct. 17 in Miami.

Before he went to the US, Bacon first fought in Sydney, Australia against Darragh Foley of Ireland last Nov. 16.

Bacon downed Foley in the 1st round but still lost by a unanimous decision.
