In July we shared the originally released Dangan 227 poster, which selling the show hard on a WBO Asia Pacific title bout between Tsubasa Murachi and Froilan Saludar, now we've been sent the overall show poster, which sells the show on the strength of the card. It features not only Murachi but also Kai Ishizawa and Masataka Taniguchi, who battle in a Japanese title eliminator, and Yusaku Kuga and Yosuke Fujihara, who fight in a Japanese title fight. This show poster is eye catching and solid, though in fairness we also liked the original poster for the show.
On August 27th we get a really interesting Dangan card, that lacks the usual number system of a Dangan card, but is very much the quality of a normal Dangan card. The focus of the show is the Japanese Youth title scene and in the top 2 bouts, which are all Japanese Youth title related bouts, we get the chance to see some amazing young fighters. The poster sells the show on those 2 Youth tournament bouts alongside a B class tournament, and whilst the men involved aren't big names this card should be excellent. It's a basic poster design, but a design that has been used well by Dangan in the past.
The Dangan cards are some of the most notable and consistently good cards on the planet and it appears their September 21st show will be another cracker with a frankly amazing main event match up. The bout, actually announced today, will see fast rising novice Tsubasa Murachi battle against former world title challenger Froilan Saludar in a bout for the WBO Asia Pacific Super Flyweight title. Whilst the bout is an amazing one the poster is a pretty average one, with the two men and the regional title. It's rather disappointing given the
On July 27th we get a stacked Danagn card, with 4 title fights, including an OPBF title bout between Hironori Mishiro and Ryo Takenaka a Japanese Youth Light Flyweight title fight, between Rikito Shiba and Tsuyoshi Sato and a regional title bout between Ginjiro Shigeoka and Clyde Azarcon. The poster is a packed one, but a good one all the same with a lot of recognisable fighters on the show.
On July 23rd we see the God's Left tournament begin in Tokyo, the 7 man Bantamweight knockout tournament is seen as a really exciting competition and will almost certainly put the winner in the mix, immediately, for a national or regional title fight. The tournament kicks off with 6 of the 7 men competing on July 23rd, and they featured on the poster around the tournaments logo. As well as those 6 men we can see images of two of the fighters on the supporting under-card, giving this poster a really good image of what's on offer. A very good poster for an excellent show.
On June 25th we see the latest card in the Japan Vs Korea shows, with several bouts between the two countries. The poster for the show is a pretty basic one, but features the face of the fighters fighting in the main bouts. It's simple, but effective.
On May 18th we get an excellent match up for the Japanese Super Bantamweight title, as Ryoichi Tamura and Yusaku Kuga battle for the second time, this time with Tamura entering as the champion unlike their first bout. The poster for the bout looks really ominous and gives us the feeling we're going to see a battle that will leave both men damaged. This is a bout we're looking forward to, and this is a great poster.
On May 1st we'll see Dangan 223, a show headlined by a brilliant Japanese Featherweight title fight, between the hard hitting Taiki Minamoto and the highly skilled Reiya Abe. The card features a number of other notable fighters, including Hinata Maruta and Coach Hiroto. The poster for the show is, genuinely, one of our favourites from 2019 with a really sharp design. A really good and eye catching look here.
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.
At the end of March fight fans in Japan will get a special show to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the E&J Cassius Gym. The card will be headlined by Tsubasa Koura defending the OPBF Minimumweight title and will also feature Rikki Naito, in what is expected to be an exhibition and Mirai Naito. The poster follows the design of many Dangan posters and looks really good.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
