On October 6th Japanese Japanese boxing will have a new Super Flyweight champion being crowned as Kenta Nakagawa faces Hayato Kimura for the vacant title. The poster makes it clear that the bout between those two is the key bout of thew show but also features the undercard fighters lower on the poster. It's not an amazing poster by any stretch, but it is a pretty good one and makes the show clear in what it is and why you should be interested.
Sadly when it comes to Chinese shows we are at a loss in regards to their names, but we must admit the posters are usually pretty good and that's the case again here for the final Chinese show of September. It's a card that features a WBA Super Bantamweight title fight, between Nop Kratingdaenggym and Nehomar Cermeno, and the poster features not only those two but several others, including Qiu Xiao Jun. It's a sharp poster and one that looks exciting.
On October 3rd Korean fans get some KBF action, with this peculiar Rookie card. It's unclear what exactly will be on this card, unless you can read Korean, but it seems that their will be 5 bouts all which will involve novices over either 6 or 4 rounds. Nothing special but still a poster that sort of looks like it could have been half decent, but has failed to build on a good idea.
On October 3rd Japanese fans in Tokyo will get an intriguing IBF Featherweight world title eliminator as Satoshi Hosono battles Jonthan Victor Barros. The two men are featured on the poster, along with the IBF title, and the shows over all details. It's not the most amazing poster but it does sum up the main bout. It's notable that the under-card isn't very strong and as a result it doesn't really get much attention here.
This coming Sunday fight fans in Fukuoka get the chance to see several notable hopefuls in action, including Yuki Beppu who is the star figure of the poster. The show might not be an amazing one but it does feature what could be Beppu's final bout before he gets a title contest. The poster is simple but it's effective.
On October 2nd fight fans in Okayama get a small profile show. The poster sort of sums up he level of the card with nothing too notable about it. It seems to feature every fighter on the card, however none of them are massively well known and it's fair to say that fight fans won't recognise the guys in action. It does however do a good impression of a poster for a low level local card, and that is all it really is.
The end September Filipino fight fans will get a double OPBF Silver title show. The show is put on by United Boxing Promotions and Highland Boxing Team and features several notable names, including former world title challengers Ardin Diale and Richard Claveras, who will be facing unbeaten compatriots for OPBF Silver titles. Although not a huge card in terms of world significantly the poster is an interesting one full of details and images. A solid over-all effort, though a rather misleading name for the show.
This coming Saturday fight fans in Mexico get an absolute treat as WBC female Flyweight champion Jessica "Kika" Chavez takes on Japan's Naoko Fujioka in possible the most interesting female bout of the year. The fight pits two genuine elite level female fighters up against each other in what is a mouth watering match up and one we're really looking forward to. The poster for the show is a simple one but an effective one with both fighters being clear on the poster and it's obvious the promoters are selling the bout as a genuine 50-50 contest, not a mismatch.
To kick off October Japanese fight fans get a Super Bantamweight title fight as Yasutaka Ishimoto battles Gakuya Furuhashi, in the next Dynamic Glove show. The poster is a really simple one with the two main event fighters, in front of a simple venue background. It's a strange but simple poster.
Next week fight fans in Tokyo get a small Dangan card, Dangan 167, which features only 4 rounders. The card isn't big, nor does it feature a big name, but the card should be fun with plenty of exciting bouts between well matched fighters. The poster notes the bouts from the card but looks very basic with only a generic image of a fighter on it.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
