85th Phoenix Battle
On February 28th we get the next show under the Phoenix Battle line of shows, the shows put on by the Ohashi Gym. The show is a double header, with two double title bouts on the card, though one of those bouts is given much bigger billing on the poster, with that being the 140lb bout between Andy Hiaroka, the JBC and WBO Asia Pacific champion, and Cristiano Aoqui, with the Super Flyweight bout between Masayoshi Hashizume and Akio Furutani being given much smaller billing. Whilst we have no issue with the poster focusing on one bout over the other, we do wonder why it's essentially black and white, something that does leave it feeling some what disappointing, for such a good show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
