Diamond Glove 10.11
On October 11th we get the next show from the Diamond Glove series of events, headlined by a Japanese Welterweight unification bout between regular champion Keita Obara and interim champion Takeru Kobata. The poster sells the card heavily on that bout but also the co-feature, a Japanese Lightweight title eliminator between Shuma Nakazato and Ken Koibuchi. The poster is simple, clean, easy to look at but also informative. We love how clean this looks and how simple it is. A really solid poster that doesn't try to over complicate things
Diamond Glove (8.9)
On August 9th fight fans at Korakuen Hall will see Japanese Super Flyweight champion Kenta Nakagawa defending his title against Hayate Kaji, in what is a really good show which also features a Japanese Minimumweight female title bout. The poster, like many Diamond Glove posters this year, features a 2-tone design for the background and the fighters, and match ups, on the foreground. It's a simple design but a solid one, that works to make the brand for Diamond Glove stand out. Simple but effective work here.
Diamond Glove (6.14)
On June 14th fight fans at Korakuen Hall get a mouth watering doubler header, with Japanese Lightweight champion Shu Utsuki defending his title against Izuki Tomioka and OPBF 140lb champion Koichi Aso defending his title against Akihiro Kondo. The poster sells those two bouts really well, along with the retirement ceremony of Nihito Arakawa. It's a simple poster but an effective one, that does it's job in selling the main draws of the show. Simple, yet effective.
Diamond Glove (4.12.2022)
On April 12th we get the next show in the Diamond Glove series of shows, which is headlined by a rematch between Japanese Welterweight champion Keita Obara defending his title against Yuki Nagano. The poster sells the show in that bout, big time, but also does well to promote the strong under-card, which includes a bout between Ryo Sagawa and Shun Kubo. This is a pretty good looking poster, even if the design and concept aren't anything new. It's simple, it works and the colours used also work really well.
Diamond Glove (2.8.2022)
The first Diamond Glove show of 2022 will be headlined by a Japanese Lightweight title fight, as Masahiro Suzuki takes on Shu Utsuki in a bout for the vacant title. The poster for the bout is a really, really simple one, but a really effective one, making it clear who's fighting and what is on the line. Simple but effective.
Diamond Glove (12.9.2021)
We get the next Diamond Glove on December 9th, as Japanese Welterweight champion Keita Obara defends his title against exciting challenger Masaya Tamayama. The card also features a Japanese female title bout as Nanako Suzuki takes on Sayo Segawa for the vacant Japanese female Minimumweight title. The poster features the all 8 fighters on the card, but clearly focuses on the two main event fighters, who are set in front of a snowy backdrop. The poster is a solid effort for the level of show it's promoting, but we would like to see something new from the Diamond Glove shows in the future as the poster does feel somewhat samey to many of their other recent efforts.
Diamond Glove (10.14.2021)
On October 14th we get the next show under the Diamond Glove banner, which is headlined by the much anticipated rematch between Ryo Sagawa and Retsu Kosaka, with Sagawa looking to avenge his first professional loss. The card isn't the strongest, but it is a good main event. With two good supporting bouts, as Kanehiro Nakagawa takes on Shinnosuke Hasegawa, and Go Hosaka faces Ryo Nakai. The poster looks really nice, it's clear, has a nice background and it's hard for us to fault this for what is a very decent domestic show.
Diamond Glove (8.12.2021)
On August 12th we'll see triple crown Lightweight champion Shuichiro Yoshino defending his Japanese Lightweight title against the once beaten Shuma Nakazato, on a Diamond Glove show at Korakuen Hall.. The poster for this one sells heavily on the main event of the show, but also sells on the fact the card has the return bout for former Japanese Featherweight champion Ryo Sagawa, following his title loss last time out. The poster is certainly nothing artistically amazing, but it does it's job, and it promotes the show well. A good, solid effort, without being anything too amazing.
Diamond Glove (6.10.2021)
On June 10th we get the next Diamond Glove show, and it's a really good one, headlined by Japanese champion Daishi Nagata defending his title the unbeaten Masahiro Suzuki, with the bout getting the main portion of the poster. As well as the main event the poster also features Rentaro Kimura and Hikaru Fukunaga, who feature in the chief support bout. The poster is certainly not a unique or unusual design, but it's a shapr, simple, basic one. It's an easy one to look at, makes the main event look huge, and it works. It's perhaps a little too basic for some, but it works well for us.
Diamond Glove (4.8.2021)
On April 8th fight fans at Korakuen Hall will get the chance to see Japanese Welterweight champion Keita Obara defending his title against Shoki Sakai. The poster for the show really does push that main event, though sadly the rest of the card is somewhat limited despite featuring the Japanese debut of Go Hosaka. Despite the poster being simple it is a pretty eye catching yet simple one, and whilst we're not massive fans, it's hard to complain. It has a job to do, and it does it pretty well, even with if has absolute no whistles and bells to it.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
