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.
One of the many stacked cards set for December in Japan is Crash Boxing Vol 16, which will feature a trio of title bouts. The show will see Japanese Welterweight champion Ryota Yada defending his title against Shusaku Fujinaka, Super Flyweight champion Takayuki Okumoto facing off with Masayoshi Hashizume and a Japanese youth title fight between Ryosuke Nasu and Yuto Nakamura. The poster is a busy one, but we quite like it, making the champions seem like a big deal, and including enough of the supporting cast to draw our eyes across the whole poster.
The City Sogo Gym will play host to an intriguing card on August 11th. The main event will see Japanese Welterweight champion Ryota Yada defending his title against Kazuyasu Okamoto whilst the under-card will see Kazuki Tanaka face off with Keita Kurihara and bouts featuring Toshiki Shimomachi and Kasumi Saeki. The poster really doesn't quite do service to the show that it's promoting. It's not a bad poster by any stretch, but it's not an a great one either.
On April 1st fight fans in Osaka will get a choice of two shows to watch, one of those will be Crash Boxing Volume 14, held at the EDION Arena Osaka. The card is really good one, headlined by a match up between Kazuki Tanaka and Seizo Kono and features flawed but talented prospects, including Ryo Segawa, Toshiki Shimomachi and Kiyohei Endo. The poster is a very busy looking one, but one that looks eye catching and works really well to sell the show.
On December 3rd fight fans in Osaka will have two cards to choose from. One of those is the Green Tsuda promoted Crach Boxing card, featuring a really interesting match up between Kazuki Tanaka and Hikaru Marugame, and a main event featuring Takayuki Okumoto. Not only are the fighters involved on the card on the poster but so too is Tosho Makoto Aoki, who will be having his retirement ceremony on this card.
On August 11th fight fans in Hirakata get the chance to celebrate a local event with a boxing show from Green Tsuda. The card isn't littered with huge names but does feature former OPBF champion Yu Kawaguchi, rising female star Fuka Komura, and the hard hitting Ryota Yada. The poster is a busy looking one, but it does the job well and helps sells the show well.
This coming Sunday we see Green Tsuda put on their next "Crash Boxing" show, featuring a host of notable fighters, like Kazuki Tanaka. The show isn't a huge one but it does feature a host of notable Japanese fighters and they are all on a very busy poster giving fans a real glimpse of the fighters to expect. As well as the images the poster also features a helpful bout list. A solid effort, though it's not the best, even from the Crash Boxing cards.
This coming Sunday sees the next of the Crash Boxing shows in Osaka. The card is a stacked one with a lot of notable names, including Kazuki Tanaka, Ryota Yada and Fuka Komura. The poster is a solid effort,clearly splitting the main event from the rest of the card, and giving a lot of information. It's not a mind blowing poster but it is a very solid one.
This coming Sunday fans in Osaka will get the chance to see the next in the "Crash Boxing" series of shows from Green Tsuda. Originally this was a really exciting card but in the end pulls outs have ruined the most attractive bout on the card. Despite that the poster is a solid effort showing many of the notable fighters on the card, including Fuka Komura who is given a lot of attention for a female fighter making her debut. Sadly the main pull out from the card is Kazuki Tanaka, who is right in the middle of the poster, and it's a real shame that he's been pulled from the card.
One of the many shows on April 3rd is the next "Crash Boxing" show which features a number of notable fighters, including the fast rising Kazuki Tanaka, former world champion Denkaosan Kaovichit, the world ranked Eaktawan Mor Krungthepthonburi, former OPBF champion Yu Kawaguchi and the debuting Masataka Taniguchi. The poster features a number of those fighters whilst looking pretty eye catching. It's not an amazing poster but it is a solid one.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
