The award for the "Stupidest named show of the Year" goes to Katsumata Gym for the ridiculously titles "Overheat Boxers Night Vol.66". Despite the stupid name however the show it's self looks incredibly interesting.
The main event sees former WBO Super Middleweight challenger Yuzo Kiyota fighting Shintaro Matsumoto for the vacant OPBF Super Middleweight title whilst support bouts see Takuya Kogawa defending his Japanese Flyweight title against Suguru Muranaka and Angelito Merin defending his WBC Youth Super Flyweight title against Jovylito Aligarbes.
Katsumata Gym, one of our favourite promotional outfits appear to have done it again with a stand out card to see out the month of September. The show, a 7 fight card at the Korakuen Hall is dubbed "Fil-Japan Vol. III" and features not only the third professional bout of Tomomi Tokano, but also recognisable names such as Ryan Bito, Yuki Chinen and an excellent main event which pits the unbeaten Masayuki Ito against the once beaten Jeffrey Arienza for the WBC Youth Lightweight title.
The poster might not be anything special but the card it's self is genuinely a very solid one.
Although July 23rd this year is really about the Kameda card there is another Japanese show, "Oriental Boxing Night". Put on by Katsumata Gym at the Korakuen Hall the card features boxers from Japan, Thailand and the Philippines with the most well known fighters on the card being Ryan Bito and Yuki Nasu
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
