This coming evening sees a special ESPN card to celebrate the birthday of rap star 50 Cent. Typically we'd ignore 50 Cent but this show actually has caught our eye as it features Filipino banger Michael Farenas.
Farenas will be fighting unbeaten American Mark Davis and with Farenas being on the poster it's only fair that we feature this poster on the site. Sadly however Farenas, and the other fighters, have only been afforded a small bit of space with the poster instead being dedicated to 50 Cent. Whilst we accept that 50 Cent is the promoter and will get the show some attention we need to be honest and admit that we find it deplorable that a promoter gets more of the poster space than the 4 main fighters.
With the promoter taking up most of the poster we've got to be honest and admit we dislike it immensely. It's great that 50 Cent is getting the show some attention but lets be honest it's a boxing show not a rap show, boxing should come first on a boxing show!

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