March 26th sees the next in the Dangan series of Shows, Dangan 126. When the show was first announced it was set to be a title double header with Go Odaira defending his Japanese Minimumweight title whilst Akio Shibata was to defend his OPBF and Japanese Middleweight titles. Sadly since it's announcement we've seen Yasuyuki Akiyama suffer an injury which has forced him out of the Shibata bout. Despite Akiyama's injury the show it's self still looks interesting with an excellent under-card clash between Katsunori Nagamine and Ken Shiro being the best match up on paper.
In regards to the poster the main images are of the two title holders holders, Shibata and Odaira, beside them are their challengers, the now injured Akiyama and Yutaka Sowano, whilst at the bottom are images of 6 undercard fighters, including Nagamine and Ken Shiro. The poster is very basic but very effective and very clear. It's needless to say we like it and it's only a shame that Akiyama has suffered an injury that has forced him out of his bout.

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