On September 15th we get the next Green Dream card, headlined by Masanori Rikiishi and the world ranked Freddy Fonseca. Also on the card is the always fun to watch Masamichi Yabuki. The poster is simply but eye catching and plays on the danger of the main event, with the take line "Challenge to the Unknown". A good, if not great, poster.
On March 17th we get the next Green Dream show, which has a number of interesting fights on it. Whilst we do like the show, we do wonder why the poster for it lacks colour. This would have been much much eye catching with colour, and we're sort of hoping a colour version will be revealed in the coming days.
On December 2nd fight fans in Aichi will get the chance to see the next Green Dream show, headlined by Masamori Rikiishi taking on Genki Maeda. The card isn't a big one, but it should be a solid one for fans in the region and does look like it has several interesting and competitive domestic bouts on it. The poster is sadly underwhelming, with a design that seems like it had good intentions, but just failed to deliver what it could have.
On April 30th Midori promotions ut on their next show, and it's pretty interesting one. It's headlined by a Heavyweight contest between Kotatsu Takehara and Yamato Fujinaka and will also feature former Japanese Featherweight champion Kosuke Saka taking on the insanely hard matched Masanori Rikiishi. The poster is a pretty basic one, which is a shame, but could have been a lot worse given. We feel the poster should have made a bigger fuss about the two man bouts, but that's just us.
December 3rd is set to be a busy day in Japanese boxing circles. One of cards is the next Midori Gym show, in Aihci, and will feature the likes of Ryosuke Maruki and Kotatsu Takehara in the main bouts. The card is a low key one, but does feature a nice mix of local on international fighters and should have some exciting moments. The poster is a simple one but sells not only on the main bouts but also an advertised appearance from Koki Kameda, helping to promote the card that little bit more.
On June 11th fight fans in Aichi will see the Maruki brothers, Kazuki and Ryosuke, will headline a small but notable card. The poster is an interesting one, clearly selling on the brothers, and has a nice back ground, but at the end of the day it's nothing we haven't seen before.
Japanese fans have a variety of shows this coming weekend, one of which is in Nagoya and is promoted by Green promotions, who have used gone with "Green Dreams" as their show title. The card isn't a huge profile one but does have some interesting match ups and the poster does try to advertise those bouts whilst also keeping a green theme. It's rather a poor poster if we're being honest.
This coming Sunday Midori promote the second in their "Green Dream" shows. The show isn't a big one by any stretch but features bouts with Daiki Koide, Kazuya Maruki and Kotatsu Takehara, all notable names and all featured on the poster. It's a somewhat poor poster but features the key details and doesn't try to make a song and dance about the show being bigger than it really is.
On November 15th Japanese fans in Aichi get the chance to see some unheralded prospects on a show dubbed "Green Dream". The card features the likes of Yuki Beppu, Ryosuke Maruki and Shohei Kawashima in what should be a genuine fun, though low profile, card promoted by Midori Promotions, which translates literally as "Green Promotions".
The poster features the 4 of the main fighters and lists all the bouts on a basic but clear and effective poster than we do quite like, even if the background image isn't the best.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
