At the very end of July we get the next show in the Kinokuni KO Boxing series of events. The poster pushes the main event, between Yuri Takemoto and Takuya Uehara, and a guest appearance from Kenshiro Teraji. Sadly the poster does very little to really push the overall show and whilst it's not an awful poster, it doesn't really make us feel too excited about the show, with Kenshiro's appearance n the poster being the most interesting thing about it.
On June 16th fight fans in Wakayama will get the chance to see the 2018 Super Featherweight Rookie of the Year Yuri Takemoto headlining a small card at the Big Wave. The show isn't a big one, and the poster for it isn't amazing, but it is good to see the promotional teams pushing Takemoto as a star, even at this early stage of his career.
On May 27th fans in Wakayama will see OPBF Flyweight champion Jayr Raquinel look to make his first defense, as he takes on Japans Shun Kosaka, in a very good looking bout between two young fighters. The rest of the card isn't too interesting but that main event is a genuinely good fight on paper. The posterfor the card sells the main event well, and looks pretty busy, yet looks a little bit clustered and like it could have been spaced out a bit better. Not a terrible poster, but certainly nothing amazing.
On June 18th fight fans in Wakayama will get a low key card. It's not going to be hugely noteworthy, but it will be a card that has plenty of action. The poster is a pretty nice one, it's nothing special, but it is pretty nice and very basic.
This coming Sunday is a busy day for Asian fans with a trio of shows in Japan, one in China, one in the Philippines and another in South Korea. One of those Japanese card's is the latest in the Kinokuni KO Boxing series, and will be headlined by Eita Kikuchi, who faces Kazuki Fukakura. The poster is pretty simple yet effective for the level of show and sells on Kikuchi's profile.
On May 10th in Wakayama fans get a small but interesting card featuring the likes of former OPBF title challenger Eita Kikuchi and the unbeaten Shohei Kawashima. We won't pretend the card is mouth watering but it's certainly a solid low level domestic card.
The poster for the show isn't amazing but it's solid enough for the level of show that the posters for and it makes the details regarding who is fighting as well as the time and date all clear. It does what it needs to do with out standing out in way.

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