In May we have some brilliant Japanese shows, one of the best domestic ones comes on May 10th, in a card headlined by an OPBF Bantamweight title bout, between Keita Kurihara and Warlito Parrenas, backed by a Japanese Light Middleweight title bout, between Nobuyuki Shindo and Hironobu Matsunaga, as well as supporting bouts like Matcha Nakagawa Vs Kai Chiba and Masaki Saito Vs Ryuto Araya. The poster tries to fit everything on but given just how stacked the card is that was always going to be a struggle. Still a solid poster for an amazing show!
On April 2nd former world title challenger Ryo Akaho will be back in the ring, headlining the next A Sign Bee card. The poster focuses heavily on Akaho, who is the best known fighter in the card by a significant margin, but looks a bit underwhelming if we're being honest.
On February 18th Japanese fight fans at the Korakuen Hall will get the next show in the A Sign Bee series of shows. The card will be headlined by an IBF Light Welterweight eliminator between Japan's Akihiro Kondo and Thailand's Downua Ruawaiking. The poster for the card features the main event fighters in the center of the poster, with the under card fighters below. The show is selling hard on the main event and has a decent poster, even if it's nothing amazing.
On November 19th fight fans in in Tokyo will get the next show from the A Sign Bee series of cards. The card is headlined by former world title challenger Ryo Akaho and features a number of notable domestic bouts to support the main event. The card is a pretty good domestic one and the poster is also pretty good, though nothing spectacular.
On September 14th Japanese fight fans at the Korakuen Hall will get a chance to see the next in the A Sign Bee series of shows, which will be headlined by Naoko Fujioka defending the WBA Female Flyweight title against interim champion against Irma Sanchez. The poster seems to be split into two distinct parts, one to sell the main event and one to sell the undercard in what is a pretty cool design. It's not an outstanding poster, but it is pretty neat and we do like it.
To kick off September Japanese fight fans get the next of the A Sign Bee shows and it's quite a stacked one with a lot of notable fighters on it. The main event will be a Japanese Bantamweight title fight, as Yuta Saito takes on Eita Kikuchi with the support card feature the likes of Charles Bellamy, Reiya Abe, Akihiro Kondo, Ryohei Takahashi and Hayate Kaji. The fighters in some well matched bouts and it's a pretty exciting looking poster. All in all a good effort from the Asign team.
On July 13th fight fans at the Korakuen Hall will get the next in the A Sign Bee series of shows. The card will be a pretty notable one, with a number of names on it, including former world title challengers Ryo Akaho, making his ring return since pulling out off a January bout with health issues, and Akihiro Kondo. The poster a simple design, that makes the card look ultra busy, but it does fit in well with the others in the A Sign Bee collection of posters, keepign the strong branding that these have. It's not a flawless poster, but it's pretty decent and really does highlight the significant of Kono and Akaho on the show.
On May 11th we'll get the next in the A Sign Bee series of shows. The show is a pretty low key one, given some of the other cards under the banner, but it a very interesting one with a number of very good match ups. The poster sells on the match ups, know they are bigger than the fighters on the card, and it's a poster that looks different,informative and interesting. A really nice effort!
On April 4th we'll see OPBF Bantamweight champion Mark John Yap make his next defense,as he takes on fellow experienced fighter Takafumi Nakajima. The poster focuses on those two men, but does well in including notable fighters from the under-card, such as Masashi Noguchi and Tatsuya Yanagi, who meet in a real cross roads fight. The poster is a pretty good one, it makes the main event very clear and sells the under card well. A solid effort over all.
On March 2nd Japanese fight fans get the next show under the A-Sign Bee banner of shows. The card is headlined by recent world title challenger Akihiro Kondo and features a strong undercard with the likes of Ryohei Takahashi, Daisuke Watanabe and Reiya Abe among others. The design of the poster takes on a different feel to any of the other A-Sign Bee and looks more like a movie poster than a boxing poster. The fresh design works well and it's a really nice thing to look at. A real treat.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
