In June 2013 Suruga Boys put on Desafio 2 at the FujisanMesse and boy do we love this poster! Yes it's busy, yes there's a lot going on, but it's also a really smart one. It's clearly selling the show on the then Japanese Minimumweight champion Ryuji Hara, but it also sells on his opponent, Shuhei Ito, as well as a second Minimumweight bout, featuring Go Odaira. It's exciting, it's eye catching. Yeah, we like this one! A lot!
May 19th will see fans able to attend the next Suruga Boy's show, Desafio 8. The card features a number of notable fighters, including Satoru Sugita and Gakuya Furuhashi. The poster is a pretty basic one, but a very clear one, that sells hard on the 4 best bouts of the show. There is no clear and overbearing theme, but it is a solid all round effort.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
