On May 30th we'll see WBO female Super Flyweight champion Miyo Yoshida look to make her first defense of her record reign, as she battles Tamao Ozawa. The poster sells the show on that bout, whilst also promoting the return of former Japanese 140lb champion Daishi Nagata. The poster is simple, but effective, and makes Yoshida look like a huge star. It's simple, it works, and it looks decent, whilst promoting a solid match up.
On November 19th Misako Gym put on another of their shows, headlined by former 2-time Japanese Super Flyweight champion Kenta Nakagawa. The poster is a simple, basic one, and although it's very basic, it does a good job in promoting the card and catching the eye. It's nothing original, but it works and that's the important part here.
On June 29th we get a Misako Boxing event, headlined by the rematch between Tomoko Okuda and Miyo Yoshida, who battle for the WBO female Super Flyweight title. The poster for the two women sells the bout hard on the main event, but also features a number of the under-card fighters lower on the poster. This is a basic design, similar to the ones used for Diamond Glove shows recently, but is a solid design and one we don't mind seeing more of.
We need to admit that it is disappointing to not see this have the Diamond Glove banner, suggesting this may not be a televised show. Fingers crossed some sort of distribution can be agreed for this show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
