At the end of September fight fans in Kagoshima will get the chance to see a small, yet notable, card. The most notable bout on the show will see Miyo Yoshida defending her OPBF female Bantamweight title against Thai visitor Phannaluk Kongsang while another bout on the card, the main event in fact, will see Naoya Haruguchi battle against Filipino Lito Dante. The poster for the card is a basic one, but an effective one, with a nice overall look to it, though could perhaps be a touch brighter.
There isn't much going on this weekend, but fans in Kagoshima do get a small show, "Kagoshima Sould Box Vol 4". The card isn't big, but the action should be entertaining. The poster is rather simple and straight forward, but serves as a solid advert for the card.
On April 29th Japanese fans will have 3 shows they can go to. The weakest of those is this one, Kagoshima Soul Box Vol 2, which is a cheap and cheerful show at the Orocity Hall.
We won't pretend the card is anything special because it really isn't. It is however a cheap card with local fighters which fans can go and watch at a very affordable price, as indicated on the poster. The poster also doesn't try and dress up the show as being more than what it is. It's a low level card, nothing more and nothing less and the poster is a simple one which may attract a few local fans but won't make fans hop on the train and travel to the show.

KAGOSHIMA SOUL BOX vol 1 is one of a number of shows this coming Sunday and although it is, sadly, a very small card there is still value for fans with cheap ticket prices and plenty of action fans who can make it to the Kagoshima Oro City Hall.
In regards to the poster it's how you sell a small card, throwing as many fighters as you can on the poster and hope that their names ring a bell with some passing fans. It's not great but is a tried and test idea that has been proven to work and we wish the promoter all the best with the show.

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