Not many boxing posters look like they would make a great DVD cover but the poster for the up coming WBC Minimumweight title fight between Xiong Zhao Zhong and Osvaldo Novoa is certainly on that has the air of a movie around it. We can't decide if it's a haunted castle style movie or a mystery island movie but there is certainly a movie feel to the thing.
Whilst the poster certainly has a film vibe it also has all the details that a fight poster needs to have, It has 10 of the fighters on it, it has when it is, what it is and what channel it is.
Of course we can't understand the Chinese at the bottom of the poster but that just adds the mystery feel of the thing and in all honesty we like it, we like it a lot.
As well as the awesome movie style poster it appears that there has also been this poster released. We'll admit that this one is more explanatory and shows who is fighting who though, with out trying to sound harsh, which actually feel this poster is a much weaker poster given how amazing the other one is.
Of course people will have different opinions to us though it is nice to see 2 different posters for a show that is estimated to be seen by over 1 billion people worldwide!
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
