This weekend's biggest fight, by far, comes from Atlantic City, USA as Russian Light Heavyweight destroyer Sergey Kovalev attempts to unify the WBO Light Heavyweight title with the WBA and IBF titles currently held by Bernard Hopkins. It is champion Vs Champion, Krusher Vs Alien, Legend Vs Newbie, Skill Vs Power and everything a boxing fan wants to see.
The fight is, on paper, amazing whilst the poster is very clever and brings us a play on the movie "Independence Day" which had a similar graphic on with the light emitting from the top of the image. In the centre of the poster are the men throwing punches where to show a collision whilst on the sides are the two men. It's a deep and clever poster even if it's not one of our favourites from the year.

Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
