Filipino promotional powerhouse, ALA Promotions, get back in to the swing of things with one of their biggest shows of the year.
Held in the Araneta Center in Quezon City, ALA have stacked the card, subtitled "Filipinos Kontra Latinos" (Filipino's Against Latino's), with notable Filipino and genuinely major contests.
The highest profile bouts are contests for the WBO Minimumweight title as Merlito Sabillo fights his mandatory challenger Nicaraguan Carlos Buitrago, and WBO Light Flyweight champion Donnie Nietes battles Mexican Sammy Gutierrez.
As well as the world title contests other notable names from the Philippines are AJ Banal, Milan Melindo, Jason Pagara and Jimrex Jaca whilst other noteworthy Latino's include Jose Alfredo Rodriguez, best known for being beaten in 6 rounds by Kazuto Ioka.
In regards to the poster it's solid enough and pits the fighters in a very much "us versus them" look that we quite like whilst also keeping the Pinoy Pride label clear and in the centre of the poster. Overall we like the poster and love the look of the show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
