On February 16th fight fans in Uzbekistan will be getting a card, though it's name is unclear. The poster for the card is a pretty basic one, with 10 fighters on it and some basic information. No bouts or anything like that. It's basic, it says boxing, but doesn't give any other notable information in what is a pretty weak poster if we're being honest.
On February 2nd we get the second Dynamic Glove card of 2019, a card headlined by the ring return of Kenichi Ogawa, following a failed drugs test in 2017, and a Japanese Flyweight title fight between Junto Nakatani and Naoki Mochizuki. The poster for the show is a basic one, and we don't really like. The lack of colour makes it look dull, and the images don't really seem to line up very well. A disappointing effort.
On February 8th we'll see the second of the 2019 Dangan 4 round shows. As with the poster for Vol 1 it's a generic photograph used for the main image with some generic details. It's basic but it works for the level of show it's being used for, which is certainly not a high profile card or one with any big name on it.
In February we see Dangan begin their 4 round shows, with the first taking place on February 6th at the Korakuen Hall. As is typical with these shows the posters are pretty basic photographs with the details of the bouts on the card. It's simple but a tried and tested formula, even if it is a bit generic.
On January 31st fight fans in Tokyo will get a low key Dangan card, focusing on novice fighters. It's nothing big or spectacular but should be a pretty interesting card, with plenty of low key fighters looking to shine. The poster is a very basic one, but one that works, with the image of a fighter walking into the main arena. It's basic but we don't dislike it at all.
On January 27th fight fans in Korea will be able to see a 4 round show courtesy of the BoxingM. The show has 6 bouts listed for it on the BoxingM website, and although not a big show is a way to keep some novices busy in what is a relatively quiet month for fights. The poster is a basic one, but we like the photo used for it.
On February 23rd Korean fight fans will get to see the BoxingM rookie tournament, "Battle Royale" come to an end. The poster for the show is a pretty forgettable one, not really selling on any boxing graphics at all. It's a shame that the poster is so lacking given how key the Battle Royale shows are to the develop of Korean fighters, and the fact this particular show has a couple of BoxingM title fights on it as well.
In March the KBF begin their Rookie tournament, Rookie to Rocky, with no fighters yet signed up for the competition they've used a very generic poster, but one that does make it clear that this is a boxing card, and is a rookie based show. It's simple but it works.
On January 20th fight fans in Vietnam will be able to see WBA Asia Light Middleweight champion Khusniddin Pulatov defending his title against Filipino foe Rodel Wenceslao in a card promoted by Cocky Buffalo. The show stacked with fighters from various nations, through most of it's notable names are from Uzbekistan as Cocky Buffalo look to promote their Uzbek hopefuls to a new market. The poster is one we rather like, even if the fighters aren't the biggest names out there.
On January 27th we'll be getting a KBF show, featuring notable bouts. One of those will be a Korean, KBF version, Middleweight title fight, between defending champion Sung Jae Jo and Gyung Mo Yuh, whilst the other will be an international match up between local fighter Min Chul Bae and Japan's Masamichi Yabuki, who will be be looking to move towards a potential OPBF title fight. The poster sells those two bouts as well as featuring quite a bit of information in what is a pretty effort if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
