On March 27th Omega Sports will be hosting a split show event in Mandaue City. The second part of the event will be "Kumbati 9" and will feature a host of notable Filipino fighters, including former world title challengers Mark Anthony Barriga and Arthur Villanueva as well as unbeaten hopefuls Carlo Bacaro, Allan Villenaueva and Benny Canete. The poster isn't a bad one, despite a rather basic design. It has a lot of details on there, such as when, where and where to watch, and it does a fine job to help promote the event.
On March 27th in Mandaue City we'll see Omega Sports holding 2 events. The first of those is Kumbati 8, which has a really solid line up including the talented Regie Suganob and Mark Vicelles on the show. The poster is a rather basic one, but one that does well in showing the bouts on the event and doesn't do anything wrong, just looks a tad boring an unimaginative.
Earlier today Omega Sports shared the revised poster for their Kumbati 6 card set for December 18th. The changes are relatively minor on first glance to the original poster, which has the exactly same design, though there is some changing of the fighters involved, and the placement on the design. Very minor differences that have seemingly come about due to the Omega taking one of the fighters originally on the poster and putting them on the second event for the day, Kumbati 7.
On December 18th fan so Filipino boxing will get the chance to see a number of notable fighters on a 2-part event, Kumbati 6 and Kumbati 7. The latter part of the event, Kumbati 7, is a star studded one with exciting prospect Carl Jammes Martin, as well as contenders Albert Pagara and Christian Araneta. The poster is a simple design but does a good job in selling the fighters on it with a simple but clear look. We've certainly seen better, but we've also seen much, much worse.
On December 18th in Manadaue City we'll get the next show from Omega Sports. The poster for the show is a pretty simple one, with 5 fighters from the show in front of a relatively plain background. It's not original or exciting but, thankfully, it is a coherent poster and it makes sense. Simple but it works, which is much better than we've from some other posters.
Boxing returns to the Philippines later this month with Omega Boxing putting on Kumbati 5. The card will be the first Filipino card in over 7 months and is a much welcomed return! Sadly the poster just looks like a pretty dull attempt and does nothing to stand out. In fairness however with no fans allowed the requirement of a poster here is much less than it is for some shows, and it is rather nice to even see a poster being put together for this show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
