On March 13th we'll see a female card at the Korakuen Hall, headlined by a pair of female title fighters, including a JBC and OPBF Atomweight unification bout. The poster features the 4 main fighters, including OPBF Atomweight champion Eri Matsuda and OPBF/JBC female Bantamweight champion Miyo Yoshida. It's a simple design, but an effective one.
On November 20th we get the next in the Victoriva series of cards, which will be headlined by the third meeting Nao Ikeyama and Ayaka Miyao, who will be fighting for the WBA "interim" Atomweight title. The poster promotes the main event well, as well as a Japanese domestic title fight. It's a good poster for the show, and we can't really complain too much about it.
On August 20th we get the second Victoriva show from Dangan, with the "Victoriva" branding essentially taking over from the short "Dangan Ladies" series of shows. The poster features most of the notable fighters on the card, looks sharp and eye catching and despite being quite simple it looks important and significant. Even for a female show this looks like it's a card that fans should be watching. A well designed poster and one which will raise the appeal of the show.
On March 8th Japanese promoter Reason will be putting on a stacked female card with 6 title bouts, including two world title bouts featur Chaoz Minowa against Tenkai Tsunami and a contest between Kayoko Ebata and Korean veteran Ji Hyun Park. The poster does really well in selling how special the card is and how the female talent on the show is the appeal. It's a great idea and we do like the poster, even if it does seem like a rebranding of the "Dangan Ladies" series of shows.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
