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.
On December 1st in Tokyo we get the next show from Kadoebi, and the next in the Dynamic Glove shows. The main event will see Japanese Light Welterweight champion Valentine Hosokawa defending his title against Takashi Inagaki whilst the supporting bouts will include the return of former world champion Yukinori Oguni. It's a simple poster, but one that works well for this show and matches up with previous "Slugfest" posters.
The first Japanese show currently scheduled to take place in November is a Dynamic Glove card that will be headlined by Kazuto Takesako defending his Japanese Middleweight title against former champion Sanosuke Sasaki. The poster for this is actually one of the better ones we've seen recently from Japan. It's not flawless but it's different to normal Dynamic Glove posters and does look pretty interesting with a lot of the fighters on it and a clear focus on the main event. A really solid poster.
On October 6th we'll see the next Dynamic Glove show, and it's really good one on paper with a brilliant main event between Japanese Super Featherweight champion Masaru Sueyoshi and OPBF champion Hironori Mishiro as well as a Japanese title eliminator between Junto Nakatani and Shun Kosaka, with both of those bouts being featured on a pretty interesting poster. The main is clearly the big selling point, but those involved in the show also know the significance of the chief support bout. A solid poster.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
