To kick off a new week we get a double title show in Japan.
The first of title title fights will see Go Oaira defending the Japanese Minimumweight title against Yuma Iwahashi in a very interesting bout that could see the winner propelled into position to fight for either an OPBF title fight, or shoot them into the world rankings. It's a really interesting fight and a great test to see if Odaira is really as good as he looked last time out.
Following the Minimumweight title bout we move onto a Super Featherweight title bout that will see Rikki Naito defending his belt against the much more experienced Kyohei Tamakoshi. We find it hard not to favour Naito but the fight should be something a little bit special.
In regards to the poster it not only features the 4 main fighters with Odaira and Iwahashi on the right and Naito and Tamakoshi on the left but it also features 2 of the under-card fighters in the middle.
Overall we like this one, it could have been improved but it's certainly not a bad poster at all with plenty of the fighters given a chance to appear on it and very clear images. Decent effort by the Dangan guys.

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