Jut over a week ago Ohashi gym released the first poster for their upcoming September 4th show, "FES 9."Since then we have seen an alternative poster released and now actually have 3 posters for the show.
The first one to be officially released was the "Team Inoue" one, which was released by the Inoue fighters before the announcement of the show, which will be headlined by Naoya Inoue (10-0, 8) [井上 尚弥] defending his WBO world title against Thailand's Petchbarngborn Kokietgym (38-7-1, 18) [เพชรบางบอน ก่อเกียรติยิม]. Naoya's brother Takuma Inoue (7-0, 2) [井上 拓真] will fight on the under-card against Froilan Saludar (23-1-1, 14) whilst their cousin Koki Inoue (4-0, 3) [浩樹井上] will battle Indonesian veteran Heri Andriyanto (22-22-2, 10). Notably their trainer, Shingo Inoue, is also featured on this poster.
The Inoue brothers also feature on the Ohashi released poster for the show, where they are the only men featured.
Now we've a third poster released which features not only the Inoue brothers but also the image of debutant Satoshi Shimizu [清水 聡], who we now know will debut against In Kyoo Lee (3-2, 1) [이인규]. This appears to be the poster that Fuji TV will be going with ahead of the show.
