On May 5th we'll see unified Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin take on Vanes Martirosyan in Crson California. The bout, which has seen Martirosyan be a late fill in for Saul Alvarez, isn't a fight many fans would have wanted but given the late replacement for "Canelo" it's not awful. The poster is a bit of a weird one, selling on the Mexican theme but not having a Mexican fighter involved, we understand why it's sold the way it is and it does look good, but certainly doesn't work amazingly well for the match up.
The big show this coming weekend is the double world title show from the Stubhub Center in which two bouts promise a lot of fire works and explosions. Strangely though the two promotional posters we've seen only really publicise one fight with the other giving a passing mention.
The big bout is the Middleweight title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Marcio Antonio Rubio and it's this bout that features on both posters as the attention grabbing image. As well as the Middleweight bout there is also a passing mention on one poster of the Featherweight title fight between Nonito Donaire and Nicholas Walters.
As for the posters we've got to say we like the one on the left, one that we found on the Stubhub Center website which appears to have more character than the other one, which was pushed out by the WBC in what appears to be a more "old Skool" posters. Neither are bad but we would have like to have seen more than just a passing mention of the Donaire bout.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
