One of two shows this coming Sunday in Japan is this one, "YuKO Fighting Spirit- Success Story Step 2". The show is headlined by world champion Yuko Kuroki, who fights in a none title fight, with the show being used to bring attention to a number of other fighters. The poster isn't the best but it does appear to be one that looks almost like a boxing gym advert as opposed to a boxing show poster. Not a complain as such but an observation.

One of the many fights this weekend is a WBC female Minimumweight title fight as the very pretty and talented Yuko Kuroki attempts to defend her title for the first time, against the equally talented Katia Gutierrez of Mexico.
The poster is effectively all about Kuroki who is featured in the main image and the name of the show with only the 6 small inset pictures, all of fighters form the undercard, featuring as other images. The charm of this poster however is in Kuroki who has some real natural charm to her which makes her eye catching and interesting and in fact allows her to lead a poster like this. We won't pretend it's an amazing poster but for a show headlined by a female fighter it's a solid enough poster and not one we will complain too much about, despite it's focus on just one of the fighters.

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