On February 24th we'll see OPBF Lightweight champion Masayoshi Nakatani defending his title against Thai challenger Pharanpetch Tor Buamas. The poster for the show is based around Nakatani, but also features former world title challenger Sho Ishida and Masayoshi Hashizume. Sadly it's a pretty uninspired poster and really won't do too much to excite fans, despite the talent on the show.
On February 18th fight fans in Hiroshima will get a low key show thansk to Hiroshima Sanei promotions. The card has a lot of low profile bouts and should have a lot of excitement, but unfortunateky the card lacks quality, in terms of fighters and match ups, and whilst the card should be interesting giving the well matched bouts, we don't think much of the poster, which does little to really sell the show.
On February 11th the KBF will be running one of their rare shows. Although the poster seems to suggest a title fight there isn't scheduled to be a title bout on the show, though the winner of one of the main bout would likely find themselves in the title mix later in the year, if the KBF manage to have a busy year and sanction more than just a handful of shows.
On February 10th fight fans in Korea get a pretty interesting card featuring a number of Korea Vs Japan bouts. The card isn't huge but should be exciting and action packed, though sort of has a rather lacking poster, showing 4 bouts but doing little to really excite those who see the poster, and instead does a better job of selling SPOTV.
On February 4th Koean fight fans will get an obscure show, as the KBPF put on their next card. The poster for it is very forgetable and although it's not the worst poster we've seen recently it is certainly among those least memorable posters
Korean boxing can be frustrating to follow, and that's been the case for a few years now. Thsicomign weekend is an obscure show with the above image being used as the shows promotional image, and really lacks any sort of information. A real weird one.
On February 8th we get a title double header, with Japanese Lightweight champion Shuichiro Yoshino defending his title against Masaki Saito, on a card that will also feature Hiroaki Teshigawara defending his WBO Asia Pacific title against Jason Canoy, in a potential war. The poster featues Yoshino, Teshigawara and Saito in a pretty basic nice design that appears to suggest that the show will shine a light on the trio.
In Early February fight fans will get the chance to see a stacked card, with a supporting bout between Hurrican Futa and Vage Sarukhanyan, who battle in a bout for the WBC International Lightweight title. The bout isn't the main event, but does have it's own poster, which looks pretty neat and looks to be a poster that has a very clear Russia Vs Japan theme. It's simple, but eye catching.
OnJanuary 27th fight fans in Tijuana will get the chance to see Mexican hopeful Edivaldo Ortega take on the once touted Filipino Drian Francisco. The poster for the bout has two clear themes, the main event, which has an old fashioned sepia colouring, and the rest of the card, which has colour and looks much more modern. It's a strange poster, but one that does show that the main event is to be treat very differently to the rest of the show, though it's not hugely exciting as a poster.
This coming Saturday fight fans in Mexico get an excellent match up as the heavy handed Emanuel Navarrete takes on Filipino foe Glenn Porras. The poster for the card is a pretty basic one, but one with enough colour to cath the eye and should be a bout that sells it's self pretty well on the the fact Navarrete is a highly regarded prospect and Porras is a very credible foe.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
