On Saturday we saw the official release of the poster for the upcoming, Teiken promoted, "World Boxing Premium Vol 22 The Real". The event, which will be headlined by a WBC Bantamweight title fight between defending Shinsuke Yamanaka (23-0-2, 17) and former WBA "super" champion Anselmo Moreno (35-3-1, 12), is one of the most anticipated Japanese bouts of the year and it promises to be one of the toughest tests in Yamanaka's career.
The poster is a relatively basic one with the show's name in both Japanese and English, as well as the bout and the fighters. There is nothing that really amazes about the poster but it lets the mouth watering match up speak for it's it's self, and it really is a great match up.
Whilst the poster has been revealed, some 7 weeks before the show is set to take place, on September 22nd, the under-card hasn't with very few details about the show currently available. We do know that Juiki Tatsuyoshi (2-0, 2) will not be on the card, despite plans having been made to try and get him on it, however we've not been given much information about who will be in action. Thankfully however we do expect a lot of details to come, en mass, in the next couple of weeks.
