On May 6th Korean fans get a treat as KBSN Sports show case the KBF Rookie of the year finals, along with the next bout in the career of the promising Geun Sik Choi, who takes on Arnel Tinampay. The poster sells on both the main event and the Rookie bouts in what is a good looking, yet simple, poster that advertises the show pretty well in all honesty.
On May 6th Japanese fans in Tokyo will get their next Dyanmic Glove show, headlined by former world title challenger Daiki Kaneko. The poster is a really eye catching one, with a simple design but one that looks really good and we like it, despite how simple it is.
On May 5th the Taisei gym will be putting on their next show, headlined by a match up between former world title challengers Riku Kano and Jerry Tomogdan, who will be fighting for the WBO Asia Pacific Minimumweight title. The undercard features a number of Taisei fighters in what looks to be a solid looking show. The poster sells heavily on the main event but also features 5 of the fighters from the under-card, It's a nice design and although simplistic we do like it.
To begin May we see a the next Kawasaki Nitta show, Hopeful Fight 25. The main event of the card is a Japanese Middleweight title unification bout, boetween Hikaru Nishida and Tomohiro Ebisu, whilst the under-card will feature a notable Vietnamese hopeful. The poster is clear, but a bit too simple sadly.
This coming weekend Filipino fans get the next in the Pinoy Pride series of shows, in fact it's the 40th in the long running ALA promoted card. The poster for the show is a basic one, with the main event fighters Donnie Nietes and Eaktwan BTU Ruaviking featuring on the promotional banner for the card. The poster is basic but sells the show on it's intriguing main event.
To end the crazy month of April Japanese fight fans in Gifu will get to see local hopeful Genki Hanai return to action, his first fight since being stopped late last year by Tatsuya Fukuhara. Hanai is understandably the focal point of the poster,but the poster does show a lot of other stuff going on and is a busy poster, despite having a clear focus.
On April 29th fight fans on Osaka will see Nana Yoshikawa defending her WBO female Flyweight title for the first time, as she takes on Mexican challenger Monserrat Alarcon. The poster for the bout is a simple one, featuring the two fighters in front of an image of lovely looking building. The fight isn't expected to be anything special, but the poster really does a great job at making out the show is going to be huge.
On April 29th fight fans in Ishikawa will see WBO Asia Pacific Featherweight title bout as Genesis Servania battles against Ralph Jhon Lulu. The bout isn't the best but it's clear it's the selling point on the show, which should be an interesting one, even if it's not the deepest. The poster for the card is a busy one and a less than great one, but it does focus heavily on the main event.
On April 25th Japanese fans at the Korakuen Hall get an excellent show at the Korakuen Hall, which features two title bouts. The main title bout will see Koshinmaru Saito battle Takeshi Inoue for the Japanese title at 154lbs in what is a real Veteran Vs Novice bout, whilst the other title contest will see Hiroto Kyoguchi defending his OPBF Minimumweight title. The three men mentioned take the key role in the poster with the poster clearly selling on the double feature aspect of the card. It's nothing new or original, but it is something that works and works well!
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
