On August 7th fight fans in Hirakata City will get the chance to enjoy a really interesting card. It's star man is Ryota Yada, who is set to participate in his retirement ceremony on the show, whilst and whilst that's sad news for local fans, the card is littered with youngsters looking to make their next move. That include local Japanese hopefuls, such as Toshiki Shimomachi and Jinki Maeda, as well as Thai visitors Achariya Boonmoh and Sitthisak Simsri. The poster does really well in showing just how much is going on on the card and makes it look really packed, which is great to see, even if it's a little too busy.
April 3rd is set to be a busy day in Japan with 3 shows across the country, with potentially the best of the shows taking place in Osaka as Green Tsuda put on the 25th show in their Crash Boxing series. The card isn't a monstrous card, but it does feature a number of talented prospects, including the wonderfully skilled Toshiki Shimomachi, who headlines the show, and the talented Ryosuke Nasu, who are the main fighters on the poster. The design really pushes both of the mentioned fighters, along with the Crash Boxing branding, and it's fair to say Green Tsuda have turned this series into a pretty solid one, with a reputation for decent cards, notable upsets and good action.
On December 5th Green Tsuda host the next show in their successful Crash Boxing series, with the 24th show under the banner. This will be headlined by former Japanese Super Flyweight champion Takayuki Okumoto taking on touted prospect Jukiya Iimura, fighting in just his third professional bout. Other bouts set for this card include a the 50th professional bout of Hiroyuki Kudaka, who faces Ryusei Kawaura. The poster sells the show big time on those two bouts, whilst keeping the Crash Boxing branding clear and obvious. It's not a great poster, but it's a solid one, that has all the details on it that we'd want to see.
On August 8th we get the next Green Tsuda show from Hirakata City and it is a really interesting one. The show will be headlined by former Japanese Super Flyweight champion Takayuki Okumoto facing Sonin Nihei, in a rematch of their 2016 bout, with the under-card featuring Toshiki Shimomachi, Jinki Maeda, Takafumi Shibata and Kaito Yamazaki. As with Other Crash Boxing posters, this is a busy poster, with a lot going on, but it keeps the branding clear and effective, doing exactly what it needs to.
On April 11th we'll get the next show in the Crash Boxing series from Green Tsuda. Although not a massive card it is a show that features some of the promoters more exciting prospects, such as Toshiki Shimomachi and Jinki Maeda. The poster focuses on Shimomachi and his opponent, Thunder Teruya, though does feature of the under-card on the poster as well. It's not an amazing poster, by any stretch, but it's a solid one and keeps the Crash Boxing branding, which has grown quickly over the last few years. A solid, if unspectacular, poster here.
On December 27th we get the next Green Tsuda show, and it's a really decent one with former Japanese champions Ryota Yada and Takayuki Okumoto on the show along with rising prospects Toshiki Shimomachi and Jinki Maeda. The poster for the event is a fairly basic one, but it has the strong and clear Crash Boxing branding, and a lot of clear imagery. It's a bit over textual for our liking, but it's certainly not a bad poster, just one that's a little too crowd for us.
On August 9th we'll see the next card from Green Tsuda, "Crash Boxing Vol 20 in Hirakata", which will be a pretty interesting card. The show features the likes of Ryota Yada, Takayuki Okumoto, Toshiki Shimomachi and Hiroki Hanabusa, with the latter two clashing in a Japanese Youth title fight. The poster sells hard on the bigger name fighters whilst keeping the typical design and vibe we see from the Crash Boxing posters. It's simple but it works.
On April 12th we'll see the next show in the Crash Boxing series of shows. The show is a really interesting one with a host of interesting bouts and notable names on it, and the poster features many of the more notable fighters involved. Sadly, though as with many posters for Crash Boxing shows, it does feel a little over busy, and like they are trying to cram too much in. It's not, but a little bit over busy.
On December 8th we'll see the next Green Tsuda promoted "Crash Boxing" show, which will feature 3 title bouts including an explosive WBO Asia Pacific Welterweight bout between Ryota Yada and Yuki Beppu and a Japanese Super Flyweight title bout between Takayuki Okumoto and former champion Kenta Nakagawa. The poster looks incredibly packed, and whilst it's a touch messy it is selling a lot of action. A messy but good poster.
Today the Green Tsuda boxing gym announced their next Crash Boxing card, and it's a good with Takayuki Okumoto defending his Japanese title against Dynamic Kenji, and a lot of under-card action, featuring the likes of Ryota Yada, Kazuki Tanaka and Thanongsak Simsri. The poster tries to include as many of the fighters on it as possible, and despite being a little by cramped it's a good solid poster that continues to build on the Crash Boxing banner.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
