On September 7th we get the next Dynamic Glove card, which is a really interesting one headlined by Japanese Welterweight champion Yuki Nagano defending his title against Makoto Kawasaki and also featuring the Japanese ring return of Jorge Linares. The poster sells the show on those 3 men, and does little else to really sell the card. A really disappointing poster to what is actually a pretty note worthy card.
Back in May we posted the original design of the poster for Dynamic Glove 587, but since then the poster has gone through some minor revisions, including adding the under-card fighters to the poster, a tweak to the colour of the top half of the poster and including the details of Takeshi Inoue's bout. Of the two this is a much better and more complete design than the previous one.
On July 6th we get a really interesting card from Teiken as part of the Dynamic Glove series. The card will be headlined by Kenichi Ogawa, with Shuya Masaki in the main support bout and a stacked under-card featuring 3 highly regarded unbeaten prospects, with Hayate Kaji, Mikito Nakano and Kuntae Lee all on the show. The poster isn't the most amazing or original, but it works for what it has to sell. Simple but effective.
On August 3rd we get a Dynamic Glove card, thanks to World Sports Boxing. The card will feature former world title challenger Takeshi Inoue, fighting for the first time since his bout with Jamie Munguia, and also a Japanese Middleweight title rematch between Kazuto Takesako and Shuji Kato. The poster, although nothing amazing, is pretty pleasing on the eye and certainly beats some of the other posters we've been seeing in Japan this year. A solid overall effort, without doing anything spectacular.
On June 1st we get the next Dynamic Glove card, headlined by Japanese Flyweight champion Junto Nakatani making his first defense. As well as Nakatani the card will also feature a rematch between Charles Bellamy and Yuto Shimizu as well as Kai Ishizawa's first bout of 2019. The poster sadly looks more like a magazine cover than a real fight poster. It's clean but uninspiring
On May 4th we get an excellent Dynamic Glove card, headlined by a Japanese Super Featherweight bout, between Masaru Sueyoshi and Ken Osato and featuring the likes of Shuya Masaki, Yamato Hata and Shokichi Iwata, who makes his Japanese debut and takes on Daiki Kameyama. The poster sells hard on the main event, it's not the greatest poster, but it does a job in selling the title fight.
On April 6th we get a highly anticipated Dynamic Glove card, headlined by Valentine Hosokawa defending the Japanese Light Welterweight title against Koki Inoue, in a brilliant Champion Carnival bout. As well as the fantastic main event the card is scattered with other fantastic fights, including a bout between Aso Ishiwaki and Yoji Saito. The poster really does the show a disservice, and if we're being honest it's an underwhelming poster for a fantastic show.
On March 2nd fight fans at the Korakuen Hall get the next Dynamic Glove show, which is set to be televised a few days later. The main event of the card will see Kazuto Takesako defending his Japanese Middleweight title against Shuji Kato. The poster features the two main event fighters as well as 5 fighters form the very exciting under-card, which is packed with notable prospects.
On February 2nd we get the second Dynamic Glove card of 2019, a card headlined by the ring return of Kenichi Ogawa, following a failed drugs test in 2017, and a Japanese Flyweight title fight between Junto Nakatani and Naoki Mochizuki. The poster for the show is a basic one, and we don't really like. The lack of colour makes it look dull, and the images don't really seem to line up very well. A disappointing effort.
On January 19th we'll get the second Japanese card of 2019, and the first to be televised thanks to G+. The card will see Shingo Wake battle against Takafumi Nakajima and Reiya Abe take on Daisuke Sugita, in two excellent match ups. The poster features those 4 men in in the middle of the poster, as well as having fire like background. It's exciting and dangerous and we like it. It captures the eye well.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
