A hectic December kicks off this coming Saturday with numerous shows, exciting contest, title bouts and a bit of everything. As part of the early action for December we get a genuinely brilliant Japanese card in Tokyo headlined by a rubber match between Nihito Arakawa and Yoshitaka Kato, going on their previous two bouts we're expecting a violent, exciting and insanely competitive contest. As well as the Arakawa Vs Kato match we also get two title bouts, one of which will see Yukinori Oguni battle against Yasutaka Ishimoto for the vacant Japanese Super Bantamweight title whilst the other will see Akio Shibata defending his unified Japanese and OPBF Middleweight titles against Makoto Fuchigami.
The poster is a very busy one though a very good one. The main event is at the top of the poser with the two men on opposite sites of the poster, likewise the Shibata/Fuchigami fight is in the middle of the poster before Oguni and Ishimoto sits above the small images of a lot of the undercard fighters. It's clever, effective, busy but brilliant. One of the best posters this year.

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