On January 25th Japanese fight fans see the first Dynamic Young Fight Boxing card of 2019, headlined by the popular Tatsuya Takahashi taking on Gaku Aikawa. The poster featured a lot of the fighters on the card, but to us it looks less than spectacular, in fact it's just a bit of a mismash, rather than a solid idea. A poor effort overall.
On July 6th fight fans will see the ring return of Japanese and OPBF ranked Welterweight hopeful Yuki Beppu, who is set to take on a Thai in what looks to be one final tune up before a potential title fight. Beppu will headline the show, which will feature a couple of decent support bouts. The poster for the card has the typical "Dynamiic Young Fight Boxing" look, which is a bit dull, but does make Beppu look like a major star, and makes his opponent look a lot more important than he actually is.
On April 2nd Yamaguchi Tsuchiura will be putting on their next show, headline by Taustuya Takahashi. The card isn't anything anything special, but the poster does try to sell Takahashi as a special attraction, and it does pretty well on that front, just sadly the show lacks the match ups to to realy back up Takahashi's appeal.
The second Japanese card set for 2018 will be the next under the Dynamic Young Fight Boxing banner, and will feature Yuki Beppu, Tatsuya Takahashi and Yuichiro Kasuya. The poster features those three on it, but really doesn't do a lot to sell the actual card, other than describing it as a doublemain event card. We like the men involved but they need to be matched well to make the show worth while, and unfortunately it doesn't look like they are.
On July 3rd fight fans in Tokyo will see former world title Jetro Pabustan battle Japanese warrior Tatsuya Takahashi in a potential thriller for the WBO Asia Pacific Bantamweight title. The poster sells the show primarily on that bout, which really should be a fun and wild contest between two men who are flawed, but generally happy to let their hands go. The poster is simple, but the reality is that the poster does do a good job of selling the show, even if it could be better.
On March 31st we'll see Yamaguchi Tsuchiura Promotions put on their next show, headlined by Tatsuya Takahashi. The poster is a simple one, listing the bouts, the details of the card and selling on Takahashi as the main image. It's a simple but effective poster.
On January 13th fight fans in Tokyo will see the next Dyanmic Young Fight card, which features two really good fights in a genuine Double Main Event card, One of those bouts will see the huge punching Yuki Beppu take on Charles Bellamy, in a huge ask for the unbeaten puncher, whilst the other will see Yuta Saito and Tatsuya Takahashi face off in what is essentially a Japanese Bantamweight final eliminator. This could be a very under-rated and exciting card to help kick off the new year.
This coming Saturday is a busy day in Japan with a number of notable fighters in action, including the exciting Tatsuya Takahashi. Takahashi will be headlining a card in Ibaraki though unfortunately the rest of the card is poor, and in fact even Takahashi's opponent isn't particularly interesting. The poster lists the bouts on the card and features a sizeable image of Takahashi. A bit of a nothing poster if we're being honest.
At the end of June we get the next Dynamic Young Fight Boxing card, a show which features two main events bouts. The poster sells on those main event bouts which feature the heavy handed Yuki Beppu and the exciting Tatsuya Takahashi though does including a list of the other bouts on the show. It's a simple poster, but one that sells on two notable fighters and is clear with all the details.
This coming Monday Japanese fans get a treat at the Korakuen Hall with several fighters of note in action, including former Japanese title challenger Tatsuya Takahashi, the very promising Yuki Beppu and youngster Yuki Konami. The show is being solid heavily on those three men with Beppu and Takahashi both being the key figures on the poster which is a solid effort for the level of the show on offer, a Japanese fringe domestic level card.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
