MP Promotions and Ringstar are set to work together for a card on March 23rd in Manila., with a brilliant main event between Kenny Demecillo and Michael Dasmarinas. The first poster image for the show is this one, with the two men on, in what looks like a really eye catching and exciting design. It's nothing amazing, but does look like a really solid poster that sells the bout really well.
The Overheat Boxer's Night series returns on March 22nd for the 89th show in the series and, if we're being honest, it may have one of the better posters from the series of shows. There's no huge name on the card, but the poster does do a good job of selling the show with an eye catching design. We like this one.
March 24th will give us the next Real Soul Boxing card. The show is a rookie card, and it really doesn't look anything special on paper, sadly the poster undersells the show in what is a clean but dull poster.
On March 31st fight fans in in Okinawa will get Mugen Idomu Vol 11 Tomi Gusuku Boxing Festa 2019. The poster is a packed one with a lot on it, showing the festival aspect of the show. It's bust, it's packed and yet it still looks solid. We like this one even if it's nothing mind blowing.
On February 16th Korean fight fans will get a small show in Suwon. The card isn't anything too exciting, though we do have to admit that we do kinda like the poster. It's nothing amazing but there is something about it that is pleasing on the ye.
On February 21st we'll see regional Middleweight champion Shinobu Charlie Hosokawa battle against veteran Yuki Nonaka. The poster for the show does feature the main bout but certainly doesn't have a great poster, with little to get excited about. Not one we're a fan of.
On February 9th the unbeaten Reymart Gaballo will headline a card in the Philippines, taking on Japanese foe Yuya Nakamura. The poster for the card seems to be pushing the ESPN5 branding just as much as the fighters, and whilst that's not ideal it does work well given how ESPN5 are looking to becoming a major player in boxing in the Philippines.
On March 24th Shinsei boxing gym and Vady boxing gym will be putting on a joint promoted show in Kobe. The card features some really interesting fighters such as Shun Kosaka, who will take on veteran Shunji Nagata in one of the two main events, with the other featuring world ranked Lightweight Kazuhiro Nishitani whilst the under card will featuring the likes of Yuki Yamauchi and Yuri Takemoto. The poster is a pretty solid one, selling on the men involved and showing that their target is the world. It's nothing massively original, but it is overall solid for a domestic level card.
On February 16th ESPN5 in the Philippines will be putting on a stacked card headlined by the promising Dave Penalosa, and also featuring the likes of former world champion Johnriel Casimero, the exciting Kenya Yamashita, and highly touted teenager Carl James Martin. The poster is a simple one, but an effective one, selling hard on the ESPN5 branding rather than the fighters. This works in a way because ESPN5 are trying to build their name in boxing, and it seems clear it's a long term strategy, not a short term one based on these fighters in particular.
On Feburary 26th fight fans in Tokyo will get the next Guts Fighting card, headlined by a WBO Minimumweight title fight between Vic Saludar and Masataka Taniguchi. The poster sells the show hard on the main event, and the Philippines Vs Japan nature of that main event, whilst also including the under-card fighters on the bottom of the poster. It's nothing original, but it is pretty solid.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
