We love seeing fighters put on the fast track to the top such as Naoya Inoue and Kosei Tanaka, both of whom have set off their career at an amazing pace. Another man trying to do the same is Russian power-puncher Artur Beterbiev who, in fight #6, takes on former Light Heavyweight world title holder Tavoris Cloud. The step up for Beterbiev is huge but the former amateur sensation knows that with risk comes reward and a win will put him on pace to break the divisional limit for the fewest fights needed to win a world title, a record currently held by Beibut Shumenov.
The poster for the fight is one we like. The name of the bout is "L'aube Rouge", or "Red Dawn" and the red plays strongly in the poster. Of course red is also associated with both Russia, where Beterbiev is from originally, and Canada, where Beterbiev is based, as well as danger, which this bout is. It's not the greatest poster ever but it is a clever one.

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