It's fair to say that 2017 hasn't been a great year for video website Asign Boxing, with their first show of the year losing it's main event on the day before the card and their second show being less than enticing. Despite the slow start to the year it does look like they are set for some March madness with two big shows taking place in the space of a few days.
The first of those shows, Asign Bee 1, takes place on March 10th and the second, creatively named Asign Bee 2, takes place on March 13th.
The first of those shows features a host of notable names. The main event will see former world title challenger Ryo Akaho (29-2-2, 19) [赤穂 亮] battle Yushi Tanaka (19-1-3, 13) [田中 裕士] for the Japanese Bantamweight titlewhilst supporting bouts will see former world champion Tomoki Kameda (32-2, 20) [亀田和毅] face Thaland's Mike Tawatchai (42-9-1, 25) [ไมค์เกษตรพัฒนา] and Hisashi Amagasa (31-6-2, 20) [天笠 尚] take on veteran professional Kinshiro Usui (27-4, 11) [臼井 欽士郎].
The second of the shows will be headlined by Naoko Fujioka (15-2, 6) [藤岡 奈穂子] battling against Australian Louisa Hawton (7-0, 3) for the WBO female Light Flyweight title. That card has several notable suporting boutsof it's own, though not quite as good as the first show.
Asign have offered the two cards for sale at ￥700 each, about £5.00 or $6.20, however they also sell the two shows together for a really good value ￥1000,about £7 or $8.80. Although pracier than a month of Boxingraise their is real value here in paying for both shows together!
