In Fukuoka on April 16th fight fans will get a small card, headlined by former Japanese title challenger Takumi Sakae, who will be looking to ressurect his career after a 1-2-1 run in his last 4. The poster is a simple one, and although it doesn't really excite us it's clear that the poster is trying to sell a boxing show. Just a shame that the show isn't sold very well, then again it's not the most exciting of cards and was always going to be a hard sell, no matter how good the poster was.
On April 3rd Yanighara gym put on the 9th show in their Kyushu Medical Sports College Cup series of cards. Whilst we suspect the bouts will be fun the poster is genuinely terrible and really looks like the homework of a small kid, rather than a professional sports poster.
The lowest profile Japanese show this coming Sunday is a small but interesting show in Fukuoka. The show won't set the world on fire but we must confess we like the poster which shows the main event, a rematch, and the fact that the card also features a double debuts. It's a simple poster but also an informative one. There's more the could have done but on the whole it's not a terrible effort from the promoter.

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