On November 22nd we get the next show in the "Boxing Beat" series, headlined by a clash between former world title challenger Shohei Omori and unbeaten youngster Ryosuke Nishida. The poster for the bout is a pretty interesting one. The fighters are quite grouped up on the poster, but the background is really eye catching. We suspect had they had a bigger star or two, and allowed the background to show it's self just a little more this would have been a really solid poster. Sadly however it's a little bit too busy with the fighters at the bottom of the poster.
Many of the smaller shows in Japan have the odd bout of real intrigue and on August 10th Morioka give us one such bout, as Boxing Beat 10 pits Yuga Inoue against Daiki Kameyama in what is simple a mouth watering clash between young Japanese fighters. The bout won't get a lot of attention but it really is a brilliant match. Cleverly the people behind the poster haven't put all their efforts on the bout, which is very much one for the hardcore of the hardcore, but instead have built up how many bouts there are on the card. It's not an amazing poster, but it does a good enough job in making the card look bigger than it is.
On August 12th fight fans in Osaka will get the chance to see a relatively low key card at the Azalea Hall. The main event of the card will see Masae Akitaya in action and she's one of the prominent fighters on the poster. The poster is a pretty sub-standard one which doesn't excite us, but may attract fans who see it.
On August 12th Japanese fight fans will get the chance to see Masae Akitaya defending her OPBF Atomweight title against Akari Arase in a relative low key card. Although the show isn't the biggest it's nice to see Akitaya portrayed as a bit of a star in the poster, with the other fighters clearly being made to look less significant than the champion, in a simple but effective design.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
