On August 4th 2013 Green Tsuda put on a show at the IMP Hall, which was heavily centred around Nobuhiro Ishida, who had been fighting on the road over the previous few years. This was actually Ishida's first bout in Japan in close to 4 years. Despite not being in Japan he had been making a big name for himself internationally with fights in Mexico, the US, Russia and Monaco. He had also scored his career defining win over James Kirkland and fought with Paul Williams, Dmitry Pirog and Gennady Golovkin. Sadly the poster is a very, very simple one for a man who deserved a bit more effort here.
On April 13th fans in Japan will get the chance to see a Japanese Bantamweight title fight between Yu Kawaguchi and Kentaro Masuda. On paper this should have been great and have resulted in a pretty nifty looking poster. Instead Green Tsuda have given us this really, really poster for the show, "GT Carnival 23" which hardly looks like a poster advertising a title fight. Real shame GT couldn't have given us something a bit more exciting.
Whilst we do usually like the idea of having both fighters alone on the poster the fact they are so away from each takes a lot away from this and it looks like a school boy effort by the promotional outfit.

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