We'll admit that we're awaiting for the Korean boxing scene to kick off like it was back in the 1970's and 1980's. We admit it's unlikely we'll get to see any great Korean fighters for the next few years but it's hard not to be excited about this Sunday's title triple header from Chuncheon.
The main event is, as you may have guess, an all female fight as Su Yun Hong (9-0, 5) defends her WBO female Minimumweight title against unbeaten Japanese teenager Mako Yamada (6-0, 2). Amazingly though we also get two Korean title fights on the card as we end up with one of the better looking Korean shows in a very long time.
In regards to the poster, it's not great. It looks very much like an amateur has done it and pales in comparison to the last one that Hong was featured in (which can be seen here) though it does give us TV details, the date and the fighters involved in the main card.
We're unsure what this card is actually called but it appears to be a show for December 21st and is promoted by Hakata Kyoei. We believe, well we're 99% sure, that the headline of this show will see Mako Yamada in action and she's the woman who features most prominently on the poster. This appears to be a bout for hear to fight for the WBA Minimumweight title though we've got reports from Korea that Yamada has already lined up a WBO title fight with Su-Yun Hong for February.
The poster it's self does look cheap though it is admittedly eye catching and has a solid Christmas theme to it which, if nothing else, is rather interesting.
We're really hoping to see Yamada/Hong in 2014 though if she loses her that fight could well be off before it's even really been spoken about.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
