Atsushi Kakutani OPBF Prelude
If you follow the lower weights you may recognise the man in the centre of this poster as Atsushi Kakutani, a former WBC Light Flyweight title challenger who famously dropped Adrian Hernandez before being stopped himself. On September 14th Kakutani takes his next step towards another title fight as he fights in a tune up bout before a proposed OPBF Light Flyweight title fight with Jonathan Taconing.
As for the poster it's a weak one, to say the least, but it's clear that the poster and show are based around Kakutani who is really the only known fighter on the show.
For what it's worth the show is one of the cheapest you will find and the promoter knows that Kakutani isn't a huge draw, though thankfully the poster makes it clear that tickets are cheap the show is little more than a stay busy fight and there is no pretence of it being anything else. Disappointing poster but an honest one.

Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
