On December 13th we'll see WBO Female Super Flyweight champion Miyo Yoshida defending her title, for the second time, as she takes on Tomoko Okuda at the EDION Arena, Osaka. Sadly the poster, whilst having a nice colour scheme, doesn't really sell the fight, or the show, very well. It feels like there's something missing from what could have been a decent poster with just a little bit more work.
This coming Friday in Japan fans get a low profile card in Osaka. The card is the next in the Gouken series and is a busy poster, that we think is too busy and not detailed enough to really suit out tastes. But we do understand what they are going for.
This coming Monday sees the fast rising Yoshikawa Nana returning to the ring for the first time since she claimed her first professional title. Rather than defending the OPBF title however she will be partaking in a world title prelude with the intention to fight for a world title next year.
For the poster on the left the show is all about Nana who is the sole fighter on the poster. Although it's a 1-fighter poster it is a high quality poster which is clear and has all the details on that a fight fan would want to see including time, date, details and the main bout.
The other poster, on the right, is the whole show poster put out by the show's promoter. Unfortunately this is a rather poor poster which looks blurry and second rate. It's great to see all the fighters featured on the poster but overall it's a poor one with little in terms of coherent planning. It's a shame that more effort wasn't put in to this one.

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