Although Asia has, over the years, held some memorable Heavyweight contests such as "The Thrilla in Manila" it's fair to say that the division hasn't been one that has really been a staple of the Asian fight scene.
Despite the lack of regular action in the division this Monday sees the first defense of the Japanese Heavyweight title by Kyotaro Fujimoto as he takes on #1 contender Kotatsu Takehara.
The show, put on by Kadoebi appears to be dubbed "Japan's strongest I" and on paper looks to be an excellent 7 fight card.
Despite how great the card is the poster is unfortunately pretty poor and not one we're a fan of, though of course the action in the ring is far more important than the action poster.
In a bit of oddity the upcoming "Kamikaze 2" card from Kadoebihoseki appears to have gotten 2 separate posters (and a banner as well). The poster at the top of this entry shows the 4 Heavyweights who will be in action.
With the main attraction being Kyotaro Fujimoto v Okello Peter for the Japanese Heavyweight title and the chief support being Rio Hidaka v Masataka Takehara we fully understand the top poster.
Below is the second poster which features the other notable fighters from the card including Kenji Kubo, Shuhei Tsuchiya and Tomomi Takano.
Although it's a bit of an oddity We've got to say that we like the idea of having two posters so well done to Kadoebihoseki.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
