On May 18th 2005 Japanese fight fans in Tokyo got the 17th Phoenix Battle show, thanks to Hideyuki Ohashi and the Ohashi Gym. This card wasn't a big one, there no titles on the line, but there was plenty on the card, including the then 1-0 Akira Yaegashi, who had debuted in March, and future Japanese national champion Seiichi Okada, who was making his debut, future OPBF champion Hiroshi Yamaguchi and former world title challenger Naotaka Hozumi. Although we don't mind the poster, we're not fans of the colour scheme...though it is nice to see a very young looking on a poster during this very early stage of his career.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
