if the holes line up use a conduit box or a round dry lining box.

Sorry posted that before I seen your last post..

I would just drill and screw the the fittings to the wall, leaving enough room behind for connections

In this case I would simply chop a small hole into the brick to shove the connector block into and amount the light directly over the hole...

it's how thousands of wall lights are fitted. the connections are accessible just by unscrewing the fitting.
