CEBU CITY, Philippines– Ronald Chacon, the hard-hitting Venezuelan will arrive on Sunday, October 29, 2023, in Bohol for his November 4 main event duel with hometown bet Regie Suganob in the main event of “Kumong Bol-Anon XII” at the Bohol Wisdom gymnasium in Tagbilaran City.

Chacon will be accompanied by his trainer and manager Orangel Rafael Ramos. They will arrive six days before fight night for acclimatization purposes since they will be flying 33 hours from Venezuela.

This will be Chacon’s first time to fight outside Venezuela as he challenges for the World Boxing Organization (WBO) Global light flyweight title for 12 rounds.
