In early August Elorde put on a notable card in Paranque City, featuring a mix of Filipino, Japanese and Indonesian fighters. The bouts aren't the best, but they do feature some fun fighters, including Daisuke Sugita, Alvin Medura and Jun Blazo. The poster, sadly, looks more like a glorified bout list than a real poster, but still it's good to see what matches are on the card!
ESPN5 have been a real god send to fight fans wanting to watch Filipino action and in early May they deliver again with Night of Champions XVII, an Elorde promoted card featuring 5 title bouts, including the excellent match up between Al Toyogon and Ryo Sagawa. Unfortunately whilst the card is solid the poster is really poor. A genuine shame given the quality of the action available.
On January 26th Filipino fight fans will get the next Elorde card. The show doesn't have any details on boxrec.com but the main event will be a WBC Asian Boxing Council Super Featherweight title bout between Al Toyogon and Ryusei Ishii. The poster is basic, but it does it's job and makes it clear that this is an Elorde branded show. It's solid without being spectacular.
On September 20th fight fans in the Philippines will get the next Elorde promoted card, which will feature a couple of title bouts. The more exciting of those two bouts will see Joe Noynay defending his WBO Asia Pacific Youth Super Featherweight title against Zhang Qixiu of China and it's that bout the poster is selling hard on. It's a good design that sells the main event hard. It's not special, but it does do a good job in doing what it's supposed to do.
On July 7th fight fans in the Philippines will be able to see the next Elorde card, headlined by a regional Flyweight title fight between Cris Alfante and Arden Diale. The poster features the two men as well as details of who is promoting the card and where, but it does look a bit souless, and it's a shame given that the actual match up is a really solid on.
On May 19th fight fans in the Philippines will get a triple title show courtest of Elorde International Productions. The show, despite being a triple-title show, isn't a huge one, but we do like the poster with the three bouts being made clear and pushed as really important. A good poster for a pretty easy to over-look card.
Later today Filipino fans will get the next in the Elorde "Night of Champions" series. The card features just a single title bout, a contest between Allan Vallespin and Warren Mambuanag, along with two regional eliminators. The poster isn't the most snazzy but it is full of information and has a clear design, a solid poster even if it's nothing special
Filipino fans are set to great a real treat later this week with a fantastic Elorde show. The card, dubbed "Night of Champions" features a trio of good looking title bouts and will offer some great entertainment for fans able to see the card. The power is relatively simple, with the 6 main fighters all features along with the Filipino and Japanese flags and the match up details. It's simple but we like it.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
