On June 24th fight fans in Fukuoka get the chance to see the once touted Takumi Sakae battle against Akihiro Toya. The card isn't really a big one but does it does have a poster that tries hard to sell the card as being exciting. We're a little bit disappointed, if we're being honest, in regards to the poster, but given what the team had to work with it was always going to be hard to have an amazing poster.
June 25th is set to be a busy day with 3 card in Japan alone. One of those will take in Fukuoka, where Orio put on a show headlined by former Japanese title challenger Takumi Sakae. The poster is a simple one, but a pretty good one, selling on 5 of the fighters rather than really selling on a bout, it uses the strength of the shows fighters to sell, and it works in a solid looking, class poster.
This coming weekend Orio Boxing put on their next show, headlined by Takumi Sakae, The poster for the show is an interesting one, but not a particularly great one. It features a strange "framed" back ground" which gives it an odd feeling and it's not something we particularly like if we're being honest.
We've had a bit of a break in Japanese boxing recently however the action is back this coming Sunday with an Orio promoted show of mismatches. On paper the card does have some really talented and exciting fighters on it, such as Yuki Beppu and Takumi Sakae however the Japanese prospects have both been matched very easily.
The poster is a bit basic and although plenty of information is on the poster, such as the time, venue and details about the main 3 fighters, there is little that makes the show really stand out. In fact if anything the poster is a bit deceiving with Sakae pictured with his belt, a belt that isn't being defended here and isn't actually recognised by the JBC.

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