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.
On April 21st the Green Tsuda gym put on a Japanese title double header, as Takayuki Okumoto and Ryota Yada defend their national titles. The show has a good double feature and a rather over packed and messy poster. We like the show, but we're not fans of the poster.
One of the many stacked cards set for December in Japan is Crash Boxing Vol 16, which will feature a trio of title bouts. The show will see Japanese Welterweight champion Ryota Yada defending his title against Shusaku Fujinaka, Super Flyweight champion Takayuki Okumoto facing off with Masayoshi Hashizume and a Japanese youth title fight between Ryosuke Nasu and Yuto Nakamura. The poster is a busy one, but we quite like it, making the champions seem like a big deal, and including enough of the supporting cast to draw our eyes across the whole poster.
The City Sogo Gym will play host to an intriguing card on August 11th. The main event will see Japanese Welterweight champion Ryota Yada defending his title against Kazuyasu Okamoto whilst the under-card will see Kazuki Tanaka face off with Keita Kurihara and bouts featuring Toshiki Shimomachi and Kasumi Saeki. The poster really doesn't quite do service to the show that it's promoting. It's not a bad poster by any stretch, but it's not an a great one either.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
