In March 2000 17 year old boxing trainee Shinsuke Tomihisa passed away following the Naka-Meguro train disaster. At the time Tomihisa was training to turn professional at the Ohashi Gym.
Following the passing of Tomihisa the gym began to holds events as part of a "Tomihisa Shinsuke Cup" event, with one of those taking place at the 21st Phoenix Battle card in June 2006.
The poster for the event is certainly nothing amazing, but the sentiment and though behind the cup is something that really is important to the Ohashi gym in remembering a young man who devoted himself to the sport before tragedy struck.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
