On July 27th we get a stacked Danagn card, with 4 title fights, including an OPBF title bout between Hironori Mishiro and Ryo Takenaka a Japanese Youth Light Flyweight title fight, between Rikito Shiba and Tsuyoshi Sato and a regional title bout between Ginjiro Shigeoka and Clyde Azarcon. The poster is a packed one, but a good one all the same with a lot of recognisable fighters on the show.
On July 26th Osaka Teiken put on show at the EDION Arena in Osaka headlined by the unbeaten Juiki Tatsuyoshi and also featuring the debut of former amateur standout Yusuke Mine. The poster is a pretty dull one with the two aforementioned fighters and Akio Furutani featured. This is far from a memorable design.
Back in May we posted the original design of the poster for Dynamic Glove 587, but since then the poster has gone through some minor revisions, including adding the under-card fighters to the poster, a tweak to the colour of the top half of the poster and including the details of Takeshi Inoue's bout. Of the two this is a much better and more complete design than the previous one.
Today the Green Tsuda boxing gym announced their next Crash Boxing card, and it's a good with Takayuki Okumoto defending his Japanese title against Dynamic Kenji, and a lot of under-card action, featuring the likes of Ryota Yada, Kazuki Tanaka and Thanongsak Simsri. The poster tries to include as many of the fighters on it as possible, and despite being a little by cramped it's a good solid poster that continues to build on the Crash Boxing banner.
On June 28th in the Philippines there will be an interesting, but low very low profile, card featuring a number of notable fighters, including Arnold Garde and Renz Rosia. The poster is an interesting one, but not a spectacular one, with far too much text and open space on the poster.
In mid-August unbeaten Kazakh Aidos Yerbossynuly will travel to Sydney to take on once beaten Australian Rocky Jerkic in Sydney. The poster for the bout appears to be this one, with the fighters faces in front a local landmark. It's not bad, but there is a real lack of colour, which does take quite a lot away from it in our opinion.
On August 18th the Taiho Boxing Gym will be putting on their next Champion's Road card. The poster is a simple one, featuring the Osato Brothers, Noboru and Ken. There's little more to the poster than the two fighters and the general text based information, but it does look pretty decent, just not outstanding.
On August 4th we get the next show in the Mugen series of shows from the Hiranaka Boxing School Gym, lead by former world champion Akinobu Hiranaka. The show isn't a big one, though we really do like the poster design, with a fighter an information displayed out in a chequered design. It's simple, but it's really quite effective. A nice design, though one that could do with just a touch of tweaking.
On July 6th we get a really interesting card from Teiken as part of the Dynamic Glove series. The card will be headlined by Kenichi Ogawa, with Shuya Masaki in the main support bout and a stacked under-card featuring 3 highly regarded unbeaten prospects, with Hayate Kaji, Mikito Nakano and Kuntae Lee all on the show. The poster isn't the most amazing or original, but it works for what it has to sell. Simple but effective.
On July 26th we get the next Genkotsu card. It's not a great one but it's got a few interesting fighters involved on it, including Daishi Nagata and a good bout between Hirohisa Ichikawa and Hizuki Saso. The poster however does look interesting, showing off the fighters, the fights, the when, where and who. It's a very functional poster if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
