If we're being completely honest January and February have been incredibly poor for us boxing fans who have had relatively little too watch or even be all that excited by. Sure the odd fight and occasional knock out were worth catching but on the whole it has been disappointing. Thankfully however that is set to be part of history as March quickly approaches with a number of busy days in the boxing world.
The first of those busy days is on March 1st courtesy of Watanabe Gym's 7 bout card dubbed "The 522th Dynamic Glove".
The show's main event is easily the stand out bout as we get a much anticipated domestic rematch between Daisuke Nakagawa and Akio Shibata. The rematch is exciting by it's self but when you consider that this is an OPBF/Japanese Middleweight title unification bout things become even more enticing and it's going to be very hard to ignore this one and it's significance.
Amazingly we actually get 2 Middleweight bouts on this card with former world title challenger Makoto Fuchigami fighting Hikaru Nishida in the show's chief support bout. Fuchigami, who once fought Gennady Golovkin for the WBA Middleweight title, will know that a win would jump him up the cue to fight the winner of Nakagawa/Shibata II.
Also on the card is the world ranked Shin Ono who fights for the second time since needing to vacate the OPBF Light Flyweight title with an injury.
In regards to the actual poster it's sharp, it shows the 5 main fighters on the show, has plenty of details about the show and we rather like it. It's not exceptional but it is pretty decent.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
