The middle of April is set to be a hectic time for Japanese fight fans, with a host of shows. One of those cards is a Taiho show, headlined by Dynamic Kenji. Sadly whilst we do rate Kenji highly the post it's self is dire, with 5 fights in front of a plain black background. There's nothing really aesthetically pleasing here.
On April 8th fight fans in Osaka will get the next show from Taiho Promotions. The card is a preyy low key one, but does feature some pretty notable domestic fighters, such as Tatsuya Ikemizu and Shota Kawaguchi. The poster is very simple one, and unfortunately it does very to really sell the show, looking empty and void of real excitement. A genuine lackluster effort.
In Osaka on December 10th fight fans get a pretty interesting card, featuring the likes of Ken Osato, Satoru Sugita and Masayoshi Hashizume. The poster is a simple one, which keeps in with the way Taiho Boxing Gym do do their Champion's Road posters, but it's never been a design or style that we've liked.
On December 11th Japanese fans in Osaka will get the chance to see a small but interesting card, the 58th Champion's Road. The card isn't mouth watering but is a solid enough show at a budget price and should provide some real excitement at a low level. The poster is a reallysimple one but we don't mind simple when it's this straight forward.
This coming Sunday is a busy day in Japanese boxing with a trio of notable, but small, shows. One of which is the Taiho promoted Champion's Road show, the 56th in the series. The show, set to take place in Osaka features some notable domestic fighters, like Ken Osata and Ryota Kajiki and those are two of the faces featured on the poster, which is sharp but certainly not unique.
This coming Saturday see's Taiho putting on their next show, a low level card with a simple poster. The card isn't expected to be anything huge but there will likely be some exciting action on the under-card, whilst the two main bouts area relatively significant for the Japanese domestic scene. This could be one of the hidden gems for Japanese fans who may prefer action to names.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
