This coming Saturday Japanese fans with G+ are in for a treat as they get the latest in "Dynamic Glove" series of shows. This one is set to be headlined by OPBF Flyweight champion Ardin Diale defending his title against WBC Youth champion Daigo Higa. If there is a better bout to be made at this type of level we're unsure what it would be as this really is a mouth watering clash between two fighters who should gel. The poster is a bit too focused on the home guy, but it's understandable given that Higa is a rising star in the world of Japanese boxing.
This weekend looks like a really exciting weekend with several good looking fights. One of those is in Mexico where Filipino slugger Jonathan Taconing faces off against WBC Light Flyweight champion Ganigan Lopez. The poster for the bout features both men with very even billing and appears to make it clear that this is a 50-50 bout, it's going to be something very fun for the fans.
This coming Wednesday fight fans in Thailand get a WBA Minimumweight world title bout as Knockout CP Freshmart challenges Byron Rojas in what looks like to be a very exciting encounter. The poster for the bout seems to be a simple one but an effective one with clear information and the two fighters.
To kick off July Japanese fans have a pair of shows on July 2nd. One of those is a notable card at the Korakuen Hall Hall whilst the other, this one, is from the US army garrison in Camp Zama. The show's two key fighters are both on the poster and are former Japanese Super Featherweight champion Rikki Naito and American born Japanese based Charles Bellamy, AKA Charlie Ota. Other than the two fighters the poster is full of details, mostly in English which is unusual for a Japanese show. The card might not be a huge one but the show is an interesting one and continues the tradition of holding boxing at the camp something that has been done a fair bit over the last decade.
At the end of June we get the next Dynamic Young Fight Boxing card, a show which features two main events bouts. The poster sells on those main event bouts which feature the heavy handed Yuki Beppu and the exciting Tatsuya Takahashi though does including a list of the other bouts on the show. It's a simple poster, but one that sells on two notable fighters and is clear with all the details.
This coming Tuesday Japanese fans in Tokyo will get the next Dangan card, a show based around the B and C class tournament bouts. Like many of these types of cards the poster has a very generic feel to it however for the type of show at hand it's a very suitable poster.
Tomorrow in Korea fight fans will get the chance to see an intriguing card, featuring the likes of Koki Inoue, Satoshi Hosono and Hyun Woo Yuh. The poster features and Inoue and Yuh and sell the card and is clear, even if it isn't the most interesting poster.
Fight fans in Fukuoka get a small show this coming Sunday headlined by Koki Ono. The card isn't a big one but the poster is a nice one with a clear and basic design. It's nothing spectacular but we do like the design.
This coming Sunday is a busy day for Asian fans with a trio of shows in Japan, one in China, one in the Philippines and another in South Korea. One of those Japanese card's is the latest in the Kinokuni KO Boxing series, and will be headlined by Eita Kikuchi, who faces Kazuki Fukakura. The poster is pretty simple yet effective for the level of show and sells on Kikuchi's profile.
This coming Friday sees one of the most significant shows in Chinese boxing history. The card features two world titles one of which features the brilliant Javier Fortuna whilst another could, potentially, see Chinese boxing crown it's second male world champion Qiu Xiao Jun. The poster for the card features both of those men along with clearly brandishing the WBA's name, with the WBA playing a central role in the show getting made. The poster is nothing special but it could end up being the poster for a show that really kicks off Chinese boxing.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
