BACON FIGHTS IN LINARES UNDERCARD
Thu, 30 Jul 2020
Filipino welterweight James Bacon (W23 KO15 L4 D0) will see action against undefeated prospect Alexis Rocha (W16 KO10 L0 D0) in the undercard of the Linares-Fortuna megafight. At stake will be the WBC Continental Americas Welterweight belt. The event will be a closed door affair to be held on August 28 at the Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, California and is organized by Golden Boy Promotions.
The way things go, Bacon is supposed to be a record build-up for Rocha who is a fresh prospect of Golden Boy. But the Filipino is determined to spoil the party and take home the belt. “I know they expect me to just lose to their boy. But they can’t look past me. I have experience on my side and I am still hungry for the title. A win could place me up the ranking and ensure bigger fights. I am a Filipino warrior. I am here to fight”, Bacon stated.
Filipino boxers have been busy since closed door fights have been allowed in the states. Bacon has been inspired by the huge win of stablemate Mike Plania.
