On November 7th fight fans in Tokyo will get the chance to see a rare Japanese title unification bout, as Welterweight "champions" Toshio Arikawa and Daisuke Sakamoto face off in a battle between "regular" and "interim" champions. The poster for the show features the two main event fighters in the key positions and several under-card fighters. Sadly the poster looks a bit bland with a pretty uninspired look.
On November 8th fight fans in Tokyo get the chance to see the next A Sign Bee show, featuring a string of notable fighters like Masashi Noguchi, Ryohei Takahashi and Naoki Mochizuki, who are all on the poster. The poster keeps a similar design to the usual A Sign Bee shows and shows the fighters involved, along with a bout list. It's a simple design but an effective one as well.
On November 5th fight fans in Fukuoka get the chance to see a relatively low key card, with a main event featuring Ryota Ishida battling Yuki Ozawa. The card isn't a big one, but does look like it has some interesting low level domestic bouts on it. Unfortunately the poster looks mostly over-crowded and messy and we're really fans of ones liek this.
On November 5th fight fans in Hyogo will get the chance to see a low key card, headlined by a WBC Youth title fight, as Tenta Kiyose takes on Joe Tejones in an interesting looking match up. The poster is a simple one, selling hard on Kiyose's bout, but it does feature many ofthe under-card fighters and is a decent design given the quality of the card.
On November 5th Japanese fight fans in Sanda will be able to get a really interesting card featuring a number of young Japanese hopefuls. Those hopefuls include Riku Kano, Futa Akizuki and Kazusa Arai, who is making his Japanese debut. The poster is a clear one with the ;ead fighters very clearly visible and whilst it's nothing special it's a design that works.
On November 4th Japanese fight fans get a card set to be shown on G+ which really looks set to be a brilliant domestic type of card. The main event will be an OPBF/WBO Asia Pacific Heavyweight title defense from Kyotaro Fujimoto who takes on Randall Rayment, but the really good bouts on the card are 2 Japanese title eliminators, featuring Yuta Nakagawa against Yasutaka Ishimoto and Shoma Fukumoto against Kazuto Takesako. The under-card is relatively strong and the show should be well worth a watch.
n November 3rd Japanese fans get the 2017 Rookie of the East final. The card is a pretty good looking one with a very simple but effective poster, displaying the 6 boutson the show as well as some general details about the event.
On October 28th we'll see a huge show in Wales, headlined by British star Anthony Joshua. On the same card will be a a WBA Super Flyweight title bout, as champion Kal Yafai takes on Japanese challenger Sho Ishida in a battle between unbeaten fighters. The fight has it's promotional material, including a poster which features the two men and their names and records. It's a simple poster and one that tries to sell the bout, but doesn't really do anything too impressive to makes fans interested, but does enough for what is a supporting bout
On October 29th fight fans in Sapporo get a good looking, but low key, card featuring the likes of Daisuke Watanabe and the the talented Kiyohei Endo, with Endo looking to secure his maiden professional win. The card isn't the strongest but is a nice idea to see Dangan on the road, and should be a good card. As for the poster it's an interesting one, selling a C grade show for what it is, a chance to see some interesting fighters in a lesser established market.
On October 29th fight fans in Kochi will get a small card, though looking at the poster you'd expect to see both Ken Shiro and Juiki Tatsuyoshi both fighting. The poster is one that feels misleading and is certainly not one we like or support. We know that Ken Shiro and Tatsuyoshi will play a minor part in the card, but the poster almost implies that they will both be fighting. A poor representation of the show if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
