On December 28th we'll see the next Hiroki Ioka promoted card, headlined by Sho Ishida battling against Mexican foe Israel Gonzalez in an IBF Super Flyweight title eliminator. As well as the main event the show features a Japanese Youth title fight and an interesting Japanese domestic Welterweight bout. The poster shows a lot, and makes Ishida look like a big star. It's not an amazing poster, but it is a very clear one, and pushes the main event as a big fight. A solid poster, without being spectacular.
On September 16th we'll get the next Champ Fight show, thanks to Hiroki Ioka and the Ioka gym. The main event of the card will see WBO Asia Pacific Middleweight champion Yuki Nonaka making his first defense, and it's little wonder that Nonaka is the main focus of the poster. Although not an amazing poster it does it's job and sells the main star well.
On May 3rd fight fans in Osaka will get the next Hiroki Ioka promoted card, headlined by his protege Rikuto Adachi taking on Kudura Kaneko. The poster is an interesting one, with the two men and some religious imagery. It's not an amazing poster, but it's certainly one with a lot going on in the background, with what looks to be Jesus on a cross and two tigers, national flags. It's interesting with out being amazing.
On February 21st we'll see regional Middleweight champion Shinobu Charlie Hosokawa battle against veteran Yuki Nonaka. The poster for the show does feature the main bout but certainly doesn't have a great poster, with little to get excited about. Not one we're a fan of.
On December 28th fight fans in Osaka will get the next show in the Champ Fight series, headlined by fast rising youngster Rikuto Adachi. The poster is a simple one, but features the images of the most notable fighters on the card, including Tae Il Atsumi. It's a simple poster but one that appeals to the local fan base.
On October 2nd fight fans in Osaka will get the chance to see the next Hiroki Ioka promoted card, headlined by Rikuto Adachi in a Welterweight bout. The card is certainly not a big one, but the team behind the poster have tried to make Adachi look like a star, on the centre of the poster. The poster also does well in selling the fact that WBO Super Featherweight champion Masayuki Ito is making a guest appearance on show, with Ito's image being the second biggest on the poster.
On August 10th fight fans in Osaka will see Hiroyuki Kudaka make his first defense of the Japanese Super Flyweight title, as he takes on Takayuki Okumoto. The card will also feature notable Japanese fighters like Masao Nakamura and Yuki Nonaka, who are also on the poster along with the two main event fighters. The poster is simple but works well to sell the main event as high profile.
On April 22nd fight fans in Osaka will see OPBF Light Middleweight champion Yutaka Oishi defending his title for the first time, whilst Terumi Nuki looks to claim a female OPBF title. Originally the card was also set to feature Yuki Nonaka. Those are the three fighters on the poster, but sadly the poster looks uninspired and dull, despite the quality on the show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
