To end a 3 show mega event in May Dangan will put on Dangan 241, a triple title show, featuring some mouth watering bouts and some of the best young talent in Japan. The poster features all 6 fighters involved in the title bouts, and it has the feeling of being something of a domestic super show. The branding is strong, the imagery is clear and the over-all design works really well. We like this, a lot. Interestingly all 3 posters for the weekend are similar in design, and that really adds some coherence to the weekend, and a strong image to the three shows. Well done to everyone involved in the 3 shows.
In May Dangan will be holding 3 shows in Sumida over a weekend. The second of those shows, the first of two shows on Sunday May 23rd, will be headlined by a clash of Japanese Youth Champions, as Jin Sasaki and Kaiki Yuba clash in a mouth watering treat. The poster for the card is a simple design, but a smart one, selling the entire show on that bout, and making it clear these two men are of equal standing in the sport. A simple but very effective poster.
On May 22nd and May 23rd Dangan are set to put on 3 shows in Sumida. The first of those is on the Saturday and is a joint promotion between Dangan and Kadoebi, dubbed Dangan 239 & Slugfest. The poster for the show is a simple yet busy one, with the 6 fighters involved in the shows 3 title fights taking center stage on the poster. It's nothing new or original but it's a poster that sells the show, and that is never a bad thing. Simple but very effective here.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
