This coming weekend we will see a return of the popular WP Boxing series. The show is a pretty stacked one with the likes of Apichet Petchmanee and Amnet Ruenroeng. The poster is pretty weak if we're being honest, but we're glad to see WP Boxing back after a few months without the series.
On April 14th fans in Korea will get the chance to see OPBF Light Middleweight champion Jung Kyoung Lee defending his title against Japanese challenger Akinori Watanabe. The poster for the bout is a pretty simple one but a fairly striking one at the same time.
On April 13th Korean fighter Ji Hyun Park will battle against China's Wu Yu Fei in a WBF International title fight. Sadly the poster for the card is dire and really does little to make the bout seem special.
On April 21st the Green Tsuda gym put on a Japanese title double header, as Takayuki Okumoto and Ryota Yada defend their national titles. The show has a good double feature and a rather over packed and messy poster. We like the show, but we're not fans of the poster.
On April 8th former 3-weight world champion Akira Yaegashi returns to headline a notable Ohashi promoted card at the Korakuen Hall, which also features Andy Hiraoka, Ryo Matsumoto, Seiichi Okada, Sho Nakazawa and Taku Kuwahara. The poster is quite eye catching. It's nothing truly original, but is pretty easy on the eye a fairly decent effort by those involved in designing it.
On March 25th Filipino fight fans will get the next show under the Boxing Kontra Droga banner, headlined by a brilliant match up between Juan Miguel Elorde and Shohei Kawashima, who battle for a WBO Asia Pacific title, whilst a leading support bout will see Casey Morton tackle Chie Higano in a female WBO Asia Pacific title contest. The card is a pretty solid one, but we don't think much of the poster if we're being honest.
On April 5th fight fans in Osaka will get the next Osaka Teiken show, headlined by Juiki Tatsuyoshi. The poster looks artistic, in a way, but also kind of empty and isn't one that has us that excited, which is a shame as there some nice touches there.
Although not the main event, there has been a special poster style image created for the upcoming bout between Elnur Abduraimov and Dmitry Khasiev. It's not an amazing poster but it certainly does raise attention of the bout, which we expect to be another show case for the unbeaten Abduraimov.
In the middle of April Japanese fight fans will see champions colliding as Japanese Bantamweight and interim Bantamweight champions face off in a really good looking unification bout. The contest with see Yuta Saito take on Hayato Kimura in what is almost certainly going to be a terrific battle. The poster really does it's belt to sell on those two and looks strong, without being spectacular.
On April 14th fight fans in Kyoto will get the chance to see the next "To the Future", card. The show will be headlined by a clash of former world champions, with Nao Ikeyama taking on Yuko Kuroki. The card features several interesting female bouts, but the poster is a bit all over the place with a scattering of images. It's a mess if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
