Way back on April 14th 2013 Japanese fight fans had a busy day with a number of shows. One of those tool place at the Clover Plaza in Fukuoka and had this rather nice looking poster. It's nothing amazing in terms of the fighters on it, but it does make the event look a lot more important that it perhaps was. The main event was an 8 rounder, with Yuji Ota, but the poster makes Ota look like big news. A good effort for a low key show.
On April 22nd fight fans in Fukuoka will get the chance to see former WBO Minimumweight champion Tatsuya Fukuhara in action, as he takes on JBC ranked foe Yuto Takahashi. The poster for the show focuses on Fukuhara, and despite having quite an exciting background it doesn't really push the under-card. It's got plenty of information but does feel a little under whelming over all.
This coming Sunday is a hectic day for fight fans in Japan. One of the shows, the smalled, takes place in Fukuoka, and is a really low key card. Although it won't get a lot of attention there are some competitive looking contests and the poster is pretty solid given the low quality of the card.
This Sunday is a hectic day in Japan with a lot of action. The least high profile of that action comes from Fukuoka, where fans will get "Dream Fight Series 21". The card isn't a big one but it does have some competitive fights and also features a special event featuring the great Yoko Gushiken. The poster is simple but does make the job considering the low level event of the card.
One of a number of shows this coming Sunday is this one, "Dream Fight Series 19". The show, in total, features just 7 bouts at the Clover Plaza, Kasuga, Fukuoka though has got a solid poster and includes the face of the iconic Yoko Gushiken in the top corner who will be there as a special guest.
The show it's self isn't a great one by any stretch of the imagination and in the main we see the return to the ring of Kasuga's very own Tadashige Nakao, who has been out of the ring for over a year.
Although Nakao is the main event the show will also feature a bout between Tatsuya Fukuhara and Akiyoshi Kanazawa. This will be Fukuhara's first bout since losing to the then debuting Takuma Inoue behind him.
As for the poster we like it. It's not an outstanding effort but it's certainly not bad at all and and congratulations need to be given to Mimatsu Sports for putting this all together.

Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
