This weekend's big show from Macau comes with a vast number of promotional posters, banners, images and the such. We've seen two Thai posters, a Chinese poster, a Filipino poster and an American poster.
The Chinese poster, on the left of the 3 images above, dubs the show "Clash in Cotai II" and from all the posters available it shows the most fighters with 5 men featured on it including local stars Rex Tso and Zou Shiming as well as main event fighters Manny Pacquiao and Chris Algieri, who clash for the WBO Welterweight. It also features Gilberto Ramirez Sanchez who has since been removed from the show. The details are there and i's poster aimed at the Chinese and Hong Kong market where Tso is a big name. It's an interesting poster but not great and the fact it still has Ramirez is a black mark against it.
The poster in the middle is a Filipino poster dubbing the card "Hungry for Glory" and features Filipino hero Manny Pacquiao by himself. It's a striking poster but one that is certainly aimed towards the Filipino market and no one else.
The final of the 3 posters here us the US poster selling the main event as a PPV fight. It's the sort of poster that US fans will be accustomed to though we can't help to feel it would have been nice to see some of the other men on the show featured on the poster.

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