This coming weekend fight fans world wide will get the chance to see the rematch between IBF female Light Flyweight champion Naoko Shibata and the woman she originally beat for that title, Alondra Garcia. The poster for the card features those two fighters as the priamry selling point but also makes fans aware of some of the action on the card, and advertises the fact RingTV will have the show. Nothing special about the poster but it does it's job.
This coming Saturday we see the next "Dynamic Glove" card, live on G+, with the headline bout being a Japanese Lightweight title fight between defending champion Shuhei Tsuchiya and mandatory challenger Kazuhiro Nishitani, in what looks likely to be a really intriguing bout between a heavy handed champion and an incredible tough challenger. The poster for the show sells strongly on the main event, thoiugh also pays respect to some of the under-card fighters in a simple but solid effort.
To begin March Korean fans get the chance to see the end of their Welterweight final. The poster features the two men involved in that final bout as well as fighters from 3 of the under-card bouts. It's a simple poster but an effective one which sells the show well.
o begin the month of March Thai fans will see WBA Minmumweight champion Knockout CP Freshmart battle against Japanese chllenger Go Odaira. The poster for the bout features the two men in front of a relatively carlm looking background. We'll not say the poster is anything freat but we do like the giant O in Knockout being used for the O in Odaira as well. It's simple but we dolike that touch.
To end February Dangan will be putting on a title doubler, with a OPBF Minimumweight and Japanese "interim" Flyweight title bouts both set to take place at the Korakuen Hall on a show set to be featured on Boxingraise. On the poster are 3 of the 4 men involved in those title bouts, with those 3 fighters having images, whilst 3 of the under-card fighters are also featured on the poster. It's a simple poster, but an effective one that will certainly help sell the show.
On February 26th Korean fans get the next KBA show, with Young Gil Bae and Hee Jung Yuh both in action. The poster is a simple one but sells the show based on what it is, a low profile card in association with the WBC Asian Boxing Council. The poster doesn't break any new ground or anything like that but it does what it's supposed to. Saying that we don't like the poster or it's sparse feel.
On February 26th Filipino fans get a notable domestic card with a host of solid name fighters, like Jade Bornea, Ben Mananquil, Randy Petalcorin and Eden Sonsona. The fighters, and their opponents, are all in on the poster which has a solid look and almost gives off the vibe of the show being a genuine premium card. A great poster for the card and one we really like.
On February 26th we turn out attentioto Kumamoto as the unheralded Tatsuya Fukuhara takes on Moises Calleros in a bout for the "interim" WBO Minimumweight title. the bout, which apears to lack wide spread TV coverage in Japan, is set to be a thrilling contes and could really put the winner on the map, as well as securing them a bout with Katsunari Takayama later in the year. The two main fighters are the feature on the poster, though he poster does also feature some of the other selling points of the show, including fomer world champion Koki Kameda. It's a solid poster and although there are flaws with it, we certainly like it.
On February 22nd Thai fans get a small show on Channel 32. The card isn't a major one, though does feature two regional IBF title fights both of which will see a local Thai take on a visitor. The card is a low key one and the poster sort of reflects that low key nature.
On February 19th action returns to the Shinjuku FACE for the second "Pioneer of Fight" show. The card isn't a big one but has on a number of well matched bouts, including an excellent main event between Akinori Hoshino and Shun Kosaka, who will both be looking to move towards a potential Japanese title fight. The poster is a simple one, and although we're not a huge fan of it it itdoes work for the low tier of show that fans will be getting.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
