On January 5th 2013 we got the 41st show in the Phoenix Battle series. The show featured Akira Yaegashi, fighting for the first time since losing to Kazuto Ioka, the second professional bout for Naoya Inoue and the fifth professional bout for Ryo Matsumoto. Despite this being very early in Inoue's career he's a major focal point of of the poster and it's clear that Ohashi was well aware that he was a star in the making. We like the design, we like the colours, the only thing we don't like is the lack of symmetry and it would have been improved had there been a fight mirroring Matsumoto. But that really is a minor complaint with a very, very good poster.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
