On August 26th Filipino fighter Pete Apolinar will be defending his OPBF Super Bantamweight title against fast rising Japanese puncher Yoshiki Takei. Looking at the poster however you'd be hard pressed to think the bout was anything other than the Takei show, with only the challenger being shown on the poster, along with the details of the show in Japanese and the OPBF title details and streaming information, PBX, in English. This would usually be a bad design, but with Takei being a big star in Japan, due in part to his kick boxing career, those in charge of the show have pushed him front and center on the promotional aspect, which will appeal to the local fans more than including the relatively unknown, at least in Japan, champion.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
