On November 28th fight fans at the Korakuen Hall will get get the chance tosee the next Misako gym card, headlined by an interesting match up between Daishi Nagata and Yong In Jo. For Nagata the bout will be his first contest since losing to Vladimir Baez in April whilst the Korean is on an 8 fight unbeaten run. The poster is a pretty nice one on a stylistic point and ia very clear and clean one. It might not be the most exciting, but we do genuinely like it.
On December 14th fight fans in Japan will get the chance to see the next in the line of Misako shows. The card isn't big, nor does it feature any of the biggest names from the Misako gym, but it does look like there is a lot of action there and fans will certainly get money's worth.
On April 21st we get the next in the Misako gym shows. The card it's self isn't a big one and it's not sold on one big fighter so as a result the poster is packed with faces though it does reflect the nature of the show well with a number of very interesting domestic bouts on there. It's fair to say that none of the fighters are cross over stars but if you know the sport well you'll recognise some of the faces like Aso "Shamgar" Koichi, who is always in fun fights.
The poster does it's though is a bit too busy. We like that it's selling the show though feel it could have been done slightly better.

On December 17th a number of fighters get a run out in what is a relatively low key card courtesy of Misako gym. The card isn't going to get a lot of attention from fans but should be fun for those in attendance.
Sadly the posters looks less than exciting with a number of fighters on it but nothing that really stands out and it looks like a poster that is packed with faces as opposed toa coherent and polished promotional image.

On April 16th boxing returns, once more, to the Korakuen Hall as Misako Gym put on a Misake Gym Meet show. Th card, which features a total of 9 bouts is headlined by a contest between Japanese and OPBF ranked Hyobu Nakagama and his supposed "patsy" Mikiya Ishikawa though the bout does look very competitive on paper.
As for the poster it's an interesting though appears more of a Misako poster than a boxing one. No harm in that considering the match ups on the show but still interesting.
For those wondering we believe the 3 fighters at the top are the from the shows 3 headline bouts whilst those from the bottom of the poster are, unsurprisingly from the undercard.

Tuesday November 26th sees Misako putting on a show in the Korakuen Hall. The show, whilst far from being anything special is a solid enough 9 fight card that should provide some decent action.
The most notable names on the card are Yuki Fukumoto, Shamgar Koichi and Osamu Hashimoto and whilst none are ever likely to be world champions they should all manage to compete solidly on the domestic stage.
In regards to the poster is decent enough for a low level show. Not great by any means but certainly acceptable for what it is.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
