One of the smaller cards on April 3rd is "Senki Hai in Yachiyo 2" a small profile card that likely won't get much attention. The show might be small, but the poster is a pretty solid one, with plenty of detail and a solid over all look.
On April 3rd Yanighara gym put on the 9th show in their Kyushu Medical Sports College Cup series of cards. Whilst we suspect the bouts will be fun the poster is genuinely terrible and really looks like the homework of a small kid, rather than a professional sports poster.
In Okayama on April 3rd fans get a small profile card, dubbed "Momotaro Fight Boxing". The card isn't a major one and it's card doesn't have a lot in terms of big names. What it does have a simple, straight forward poster, with images of a number of the fighters involved on the card, however it's not a brilliant poster if we're being honest.
One of the many shows on April 3rd is the next "Crash Boxing" show which features a number of notable fighters, including the fast rising Kazuki Tanaka, former world champion Denkaosan Kaovichit, the world ranked Eaktawan Mor Krungthepthonburi, former OPBF champion Yu Kawaguchi and the debuting Masataka Taniguchi. The poster features a number of those fighters whilst looking pretty eye catching. It's not an amazing poster but it is a solid one.
On April 2nd Indonesian fans get a treat as they get than chance to see the rising Iwan Zoda take to the ring. The card, which is headlined by the exciting Zoda, features an number of other bouts as well as a couple of exhibitions, one of which will feature Daud Yordan whilst another will feature former world champion Ellyas Pical. The poster is a very busy one but one that is full of detail and information, making it a genuinely useful poster.
To begin April Filipino fans will get the chance to see an OPBF interim triple header. The bouts aren't,perhaps, the most deserving of title status but the show does look like a good one with a brilliant match up between Rey Megrino and Jonathan Baat being by far and away the most interesting. The key fighters are all featured in the middle of the poster whilst the other parts of the poster feature the show's details and various other information, such as details on the promoter. It's not the best poster, but it does look like a poster that promises a lot of action.
To end March Filipino fans get the chance to attend a "3 Jewels Sports Promotion" show. The card has some notable fighters on it, the most exciting of which is Dexter Alimento, who features as the central fighter ion the poster. Despite Alimento's inclusion the poster isn't the most interesting, thankfully though it is full of detail and information which at least helps fans to make a decision on the card ahead of fight night.
To kick off the April action in Japan fans get the next Dynamic Glove show, a card with two Japanese title fights, both of which look really promising. The bouts in question will see Super Featherweight champion Kenichi Ogawa defending his title against Satoru Sugita and Yasutaka Ishimoto defending the Japanese Super Bantamweight title against Yosuke Fujihara. The 4 men from the main bouts are on the poster with the two champions taking the large images behind their challengers.
The final big Japanese card this month comes from the Korakuen Hall and sees Satoshi Hosono face Rikiya Fukuhara in a bout for the Japanese Featherweight title. The poster features those two men, along with a lion, as it's key images whilst a number of the undercard fighters are featured in little inset images. It's a solid poster, but nothing too out of the ordinary from the Ohashi team who have had a number of posters that have looked very similar to this on in the pasty
This coming weekend is a busy one with a number of shows in Asia. One of the most notable is a Japanese card promoted by Osaka Teiken. The card features a trio of notable fighters, including the hotly tipped Sho Nakazawa, the promising Tatsuya Ikemizu and second generation fighter Juiki Tatsuyoshi. The card features images of those 3 men as well as details on the show for those interested in attending.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
