Way back on March 20th 2013 the Kaikyo Messe in Yamaguchi prefecture played host to Kanmon Dramatic Fight Vol 2. The card wasn't a huge one but did feature some of the most interesting names around at the time, include Jump Ikeo, Fever Maki, Burning Ishii and Accel Sumiyoshi. The poster does well to sell what is a rather small and low show. There's not a huge amount for them to work with, but they do do well, and it is a decent design if nothing else.
On October 28th we get a Japanese title eliminator as Accel Sumiyoshi faces off with Tatsuya Yanagi, in the third meeting, to decide the next mandatory challenger, likely for Shuichiro Yoshino, with that bout headlining the next Kanmon Dramatic Fight card. The poster for the show features those two men in the center and it's clear that the show is selling on their eliminator and history, rather than the under-card. The poster isn't the best but it is eye catching and looks exciting.
On May 13th Japanese fight fans in Yamaguchi will get the next show in the Kanmon Dramatic Fight series of cards. The poster is a simple one with the fighters on the poster along with the show details. It's not the best poster out there but the series of shows is standing by their indentity and keeping posters in a similar style, which is never a bad thing.
OnNovember 19th Japanese fight fans will get the next in the Kanmon Dramatic Fight series of shows, and this one look like a well matched one. The bout features a number of notable fighters with the main event being a clash between Accel Sumiyoshi and veteran Motoki Sasaki. The poster, like the ones from the rest of the series, is a packed one with a lot going on, but the main event is given the starring role on the promotional material and it lools like a busy but good poster.
The Kanmon Dramatic Fight series of shows, from Kanmon Japan, haven't been the biggest or best cards going but they have regularly given us even match ups with the promoter through their own fighters in tough. That's the case against this coming Sunday when we get the 10th show in the series, featuring the likes of of Accel Sumiyoshi, Fever Maki and Jump Ikeo all up against solid domestic opponents.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
