On September 11th 2021 we'll see the next Dynamic Glove show, and it's a pretty interesting one headlined by a Japanese Light Flyweight title bout, between Rikito Shiba and Shokichi Iwata, and featuring a solid co-feature, between Yuki Nagano and Yuki Beppu. The poster sells the show on those two bouts, and is simple yet effective. Nothing spectacular, but it works and it does catch the eye.
On September 26th fight fans in Osaka get the next show from Taiho Promotions. The event isn't a big one, but it does feature some notable fighters, including Ken and Noboru Osato. The poster is sadly a super basic, dull and boring one that looks uninspired. A really poor effort here is we're being honest.
On September 19th fight fans in Osaka get the latest show in the Cham Fight series, and it's an interesting one despite not being a massive one. The show will be headlined by a really interesting Middleweight clash between Ran Tomomatsu taking on Katsuhiro Nakata. The card, on the whole, is a pretty low key one, but the poster does well in trying to make the show look interesting and busy. It's nothing special, but it does a job in making a small show look important.
On September 18th we get the next Dangan card and it's one that sadly has a poster that's already had a major issue. The card was originally set to be headlined by a match up between OPBF Light Welterweight champion Ricky Naito and Koichi Aso, a bout that has been cancelled due to Naito suffering from Covid19. As a result the co-feature, which is a third bout between Ryoichi Tamura and Yusaku Kuga, is now the main event. The Tamura Vs Kuga bout, a Japanese title eliminator, should be something brutal and special, like their first two bouts, but it's a shame that the main event has been cancelled for this one.
On September 10th we'll see WBC Light Flyweight champion Kenshiro Teraji defending his title against Japanese challenger Masamichi Yabuki, in an interesting bout which will put the skills and boxing IQ of the champion against the power and heavy hands of the destructive challenger. Sadly the show lacks a catchy name, or something to brand the show, but it does have a pretty nice looking poster, with the two men in front of an explosion. Nothing too creative or unique, but it does look good and that's mostly what we car about when it comes to posters.
On September 9th we get the next Phoenix Battle show, promoted by Hideyuki Ohashi. The card is a rather small one, with very few notable fighters involved, though it does feature former K-1 fighter Yoshiki Takei, who looks to continue his promising boxing journey, in the main event and the promising Rikito Adachi lower down the card. The poster really tries to sell the show on Takei, and in fairness the poster does a really good job at promoting a very weak card.
On August 15th Marban Boxing promotions will be putting on their next show, the show isn't a big one, but it's a solid local show and has a pretty decent looking poster, splitting up the 3 bouts. It's simple, but it works and it shows how effective a simple poster can be for a low profile show like this one.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
