On March 4th Korean fans will get the chance to see card featureing 4 title bouts, with a bit of a strange card that on paper sounds really intersting, though 3 of those title bouts are national title contests with unknowns involved. The main event of the card is a WIBA title fight between Eun Hye Lee and Chie Higano, in what looks like a very good match up on ppaer. The poster looks busy and active, and whilst it's not the best it's certain trying to sell the action that the show is set to have.
On March 23rd fight fans in Tokyo will be able to see the next Flash Akabane show. The card will feature former Japanese Super Flyweight champion Kenta Nakagawa as well as a very interesting match up between Daishi Nagata and Takashi Inagaki. If we're being honest the poster doesn't look like anything special. It does it's job in trying to sell the card, but it doesn't make the card seem like it's anything special, which is a little bit disappointing.
On March 18th fight fans at the Portopia Hotel in Kobe will get a world title double header, with Ryuya Yamanaka defending his WBO Minimumweight title against Moises Calleros and Reiya Konishi battling Carlos Canizales for the vacant WBA Light Flyweight title. The poster focuses entirely on the two local men and the world titles. It's not a terrible poster, though we do like to seeall the main fighters on a poster, and in some ways it almost looks as if the main event fight is Yamanaka Vs Konishi. It's a good poster, but a bit too focused on the Japanese fighters.
On March 13th fight fans at the Korakuen Hall have an OPBF title double header. Fans will be able to see Hidenori Otake defending his OPBF Super Bantamweight title against hard hitting Filipino Brian Lobetania and Flyweight champion Keisuke Nakayama defending his belt against Jayr Raquinel. The poster shows the two champions and has the typical Golden Child boxing design. We've never been fans of the design but it seems to work to promote shows, even if it does look very weak as promotional art work goes.
On February 25th Filipino fight fans will get the chance to see a WBO Asia Pacific Super Bantamweight title fight, as Juan Miguel Elorde defends the title against Thai challenger Yodsingdaeng Jor Chajinda. The poster is a pretty simple one, but does the job of selling the main event well, and continues to push the Elorde brand.
On March 11th fight fans in Australia will see once beaten local Ibrahim Balla take on Thai hopeful Norasing Kokietgym, in what looks like a really good match up for the WBA Oceania Featherweight title. The poster for the for the bout is a simple one, with the two fighters on it, but one that does make the bout seem significant and important.
February 24th is set to be a huge day for fans of the lower weights. One of the many cards of note is "Punches at the Park 7", an Australian card that features several different posters. For us the key bout is the OPBF Super Flyweight title bout between Rene Dacquel and Andrew Moloney, but we've included all 4 of the posters here and do like the idea of having multiple designs for a show, and do like the way Hosking Promotions have promoted the show.
On March 11th fight fans in Kagoshima get their next "Kagoshima Soulbox" card, and it's a pretty interesting one. The main even is a very good match up between Naoya Haruguchi and Jeffrey Galero, whilst other on the card include Shuma Nakazato and Change Hamashima. The poster has a really nice artistic style to it and we eally like this one.
On March 10th fight fans in Germany will get the chance to see Japan's Tamao Ozawa battle against Raja Amasheh in a bout for the WBO female Super Flyweight title. The poster for the show is a very simplistic one and does very little to really sell the show, other than show both fighters and the WBO title they will be fighting for. It's a poor poster for what should be a very good bout.
On February 17th fight fans in Argentian saw Debora Dionicius take on Japan's Terumi Nuki. The fight, for the IBF female Super Flyweight title, had a very basic posted, with the two fighters in front of a blakc background. A very simple and basic poster, whcih does little to really sell the fight.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
