In Seoul later today Hwang Kil Kim will clash with Abdurasul Ismoilov, in a bout for the WBA Asia Lightweight title. The poster for the show sells not only on the Kim Vs Ismoilov bout but also the co-feature, between Joo Young Kim v Eldorbek Sayidov. Whilst the poster does sell the show on the bouts and features a lot of details, though does feel a touch empty.
In late September Singaporean fans will get a small but notable show, headlined by local female star Nurshahidah Roslie taking on Fan Yin. The poster sells on the two main bouts, both title bouts, but has a pretty basic and unexciting design.
On September 20th Filipino fans will get the chance to see a card littered with notable names, including the talented Mark Anthony Gerlado and the all action Carl Jammes Martin. Sadly the poster for the card is pretty awful, despite how interest the show it's self is. Is features almost as much focus on the promoter and match maker as the fighters involved,m which is a shame, and has so much wasted space. A really poor effort by those designing the poster.
On October 6th we get the next show in the Kuroshio Dynamic Fight series. The card, for the most part, is a low key one, though it does have a very notable guest on it, WBC Light Flyweight champion Kenshiro. The main event of the card will see Yuri Takemoto battling against Yoshiyuki Takabayashi, though of course it is Kenshiro who is the draw. Sadly the poster looks like a really weird mess.
RCC are one of the most under-rated promoters out there and their regular cards are among the most interest, deep and widely available, with free international streams a regular feature of their shows. On September 7th their card features several Asian fighters, including a match up between Uzbek puncher Ravshanbek Umurzakov and upset minded Filipino Roldan Aldea, who returns to Russia following an upset in July against Mikhail Alexeev. The poster is a basic one, but it does do it's job in putting faceson to the poster.
Heavy handed Filipino Chrstian Araneta has been hovering around the world rankings for a while and according to this poster he will get a chance to take a big step forward on September 7th when he takes on once beaten Mexican Daniel Valladares in an IBF eliminator. The poster is a pretty basic one, though does have a certain eye pleasing appeal to it.
On October 12th Filipino Rodynie Rafol will be in Australia to take on Tyson Lantry in a bout for a minor title. Sadly the poster has little more than the very basic details needed for a poster. with the fighters, location and date. A very underwhelming design.
September is a crazy month with bouts at various levels, one of those bouts will see Filipino fighter Jenel Lausa take on Indonesian foe Carlos Lopez in a GBO Asia Pacific title fight. For Lopez this will be his first bout in over 6 years, so we're very unsure what he's done to deserve a title bout, whilst Lausa is an unbeaten 31 year old. The rest of the show is certainly nothing too notable. Sadly the poster for this is just a bit, well, boring.
The next show in the Evolution Fight Series is set for September 21st in Pattaya. This poster focuses on a match up between Kevin Gronlund and Surachet Tongmala, and whilst it looks alright they do look like they are trying to sell a show on a rather low key bout.
to end the month of August Martin Daniel Promotions will host the latest in the Indonesia Big Fight series of shows, which are a notable series of Indonesian cards. This show will be the 13th in the Big Fight series and features some of the most notable fighters in the country, such as Andika Sabu and Larry Siwu. The poster is nothing amazing, though we're not fans of how it makes the promoters look more important than the fighters, a poor idea if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
