MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxers Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista and Genesis Servania will take their talents to Middle East when ALA Promotions holds a fight card in Dubai on August 29.

Ronnie Nathanielsz, writing for PhilBoxing, reported that Bautista will headline the event, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center.

The unbeaten Servania will also be featured on the card, along with another undefeated fighter, Arthur Villanueva.

The opponents of all three fighters have yet to be announced.

The bout will be the second for Bautista since he briefly retired last year. He made a successful ring return in May by beating Sergio Villanueva in another Pinoy Pride event.

ALA Promotions is also planning to hold a fight card at the Home Depot Center in California later this year, with light-flyweight champion Donnie "Ahas" Nietes fighting in the main event.
