It's fair to say that late March is set to be pretty packed, with one of the best bouts being an OPBF Super Featherweight title bout, as Hironori Mishiro defends his belt against Takuya Watanabe in the headline bout of Dangan 221. If we're being honest this is the sort of gold stand poster that Dangan do give us. The background, the fighters, the details, the setting. Fantastic poster, and something that makes both event fighters look significant. A really good one and one that matches up to the quality of the fight.
On April 14th we see the next Splendid Boxing show, which will be headlined by the rematch between Musashi Mori and Richard Pumicpic, following their 2018 clash which ended following a headclash. As well as the main event the card will also feature Ginjiro Shigeoka and Seiya Tsutsumi, two very highly regarded prospects from the Watanabe gym. The poster sells hard on the main event, and makes Mori look like a star, which does great for fans perhaps not aware of him. It's not an amazing poster, but it certainly does a good job of painting the local youngster as something special.
The March 16th bout between Kosei Tanaka and Ryoichi Taguchi may not have the greatest name, "The Fate", and whilst we weren't huge fans of the original poster we absolutely love this second design, featuring the two men in what looks like a pretty artistic and eye catching design. We like this one a lot.
On March 13th we'll see a female card at the Korakuen Hall, headlined by a pair of female title fighters, including a JBC and OPBF Atomweight unification bout. The poster features the 4 main fighters, including OPBF Atomweight champion Eri Matsuda and OPBF/JBC female Bantamweight champion Miyo Yoshida. It's a simple design, but an effective one.
On April 14th we get the next show in the Real Fight series, and we like this one, a lot. It's not the most eye catching or packed poster but it does have a cool colour scheme and looks kinda like a wanted poster. Maybe we're just easily pleased, but we like this look of this, for what is a lower level card.
On March 17th we get the next Green Dream show, which has a number of interesting fights on it. Whilst we do like the show, we do wonder why the poster for it lacks colour. This would have been much much eye catching with colour, and we're sort of hoping a colour version will be revealed in the coming days.
On March 2nd fight fans at the Korakuen Hall get the next Dynamic Glove show, which is set to be televised a few days later. The main event of the card will see Kazuto Takesako defending his Japanese Middleweight title against Shuji Kato. The poster features the two main event fighters as well as 5 fighters form the very exciting under-card, which is packed with notable prospects.
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.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
