On July 12th we'll get a stacked card from Osaka, with the rematch between Ryota Murata and Rob Brant as well as a WBC Light Flyweight world title fight between Kenshiro and Jonathan Taconing and regional Super Featherweight title fight between Joe Noynay and Satoshi Shimizu. The show has two different posts, one from Top Rank which can be seen here Brant Vs Murata II and this one, for Fuji Boxing, which has the three main bouts on a rather intense poster. This is, for us, much, much better than the Top Rank one, and has a dark brooding look to it. A really good poster.
On December 30th we get a triple header thanks to Fuji TV. The show will see Masayuki Ito defending his WBO Super Featherweight title against mandatory challenger Evgeny Chupraov, Kenshiro defending the WBC Light Flyweight title against Saul Juarez and a bout between Takuma Inoue and Petch CP Freshmart, for the WBC "Interim" Bantamweight. The post is a very basic, simple one, advertising the time, date, venue and match ups, and it works pretty well for what it is.
On February 4th Japanese fight fans in Okinawa will get the chance to see local champion Daigo Higa defending his WBC Flyweight title. The poster for the show focuses totally on Higa and doesn't feature anything of challenger Moises Fuentes, in what's a pretty solid, artistic and eye catching poster.
On December 30th fight fans in Yokohama get one of the final big shows of the year, thanks to Fuji TV and Ohashi Boxing. The show will see Naoya Inoue and Ken Shiro defending their world titles and will also featuring rising contenders Takuma Inoue and Satoshi Shimizu. The poster is a simple design but looks great and sells on the name value of the 4 talented locals. It could be improved, but we do really like this one, and are really excited for the show, which essentially sells it's self.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
