On April 22nd we see IBF Minimumweight champion Katsunari Takayama defending his belt against Thailand's Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr in a bout that looks like a mismatch but has a lot on the line. For Fahlan it's a chance to claim a title previously held by father, more than 20 years ago, whilst a win for Takayama moves him a step towards a Minimumweight super fighter with Hekkie Budler.
This time around we've posters produced by the teams of both fighters.
On the left is the one produced by Takayama's team and sees Takayama in the foreground with his stack of belts at the top of the poster and Fahlan on the left. It's a solid poster but, as with many Takayama posters, it's more of a "Takayama poster" than a fight poster. We like it but it looks like it'd work better as a book cover than a poster.
On the right we get the poster from Kiatkreerin, Fahlan's promoter. It shows the two men, a temple and the details of when the bout will be as well as who is showing it, MONO29. It's clear and eye catching even if it's not the most action-based poster.

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