On April 18th we'll see Japanese Flyweight champion Seigo Yuri Akui fight in a non-title bout against Yuto Nakamura. The poster for the bout makes Akui look like a star, and does it's best to give him a supporting cast. Sadly those the poster look like it's trying to be too busy and is just not that enticing or inspiring to our eyes. Akui is a potential star, but we can't help thinking more could have been done here to really promote the show.
On March 8th Seigo Yuri Akui makes his first defense of the Japanese Flyweight title, as he takes on Seiya Fujikita in a mandatory defense. The poster for the show sells hard on that main event, and looks clean through through out. Despite being clean it does look just a little boring and uninspired, a problem with such a dull, monotone, blackground.
On October 27th we get the next Momotaro Fight Boxing card, the 38th under the banner. The event will be headlined by a Japanese Flyweight title fight, as Seigo Yuri Akui and Shun Kosaka battle for the belt that was recently vacated by Junto Nakatani. The poster is a simple one, with the two fighters in the middle along with the title. The bottom of the poster then looks to sell the rest of the card. It's simple, but effectively sells the main event as something special.
The next card under the Momotaro Fight Boxing banner takes place on April 28th in Okayama. The show isn't a mega stacked card, but will feature local prospect Seigo Yuri Akui as well as a Japanese Youth Bantamweight title fight between Tetsu Araki and Atsushi Takada, in what is a really interesting contest.
On April 8th fight fans in Okayama will get the chance to see a pretting interesting low key card, headlined by a match up between Seigo Yuri Akui and Masamichi Yabuki, who are both very talented youngsters with the potential to go a long way in the future. The poster sells the main event really well, and looks good and sharp, whilst also giving attention to what looks like a really deep undercard. A solid poster, and one that actually oversells the show.
On October 22nd fight fans in Okayama will have a low key show headlined by Kota Fujimoto taking on Kenta Sugimoto. The bout will be over-shadowed by other aciton in Japan, but the card does appear, on paper atleast, to have a number of competitive bouts and should prove to be an entertaining card for fans who can make their way to Suntopia.
This coming Sunday sees a small but notable show in Okayama, as Seigo Yuri Akui returns to the ring to continue his rise towards a title fght. The poster isn't the best, but is a clear one noting the fighters involved. It's simple but effective with plenty of details on show.
On October 2nd fight fans in Okayama get a small profile show. The poster sort of sums up he level of the card with nothing too notable about it. It seems to feature every fighter on the card, however none of them are massively well known and it's fair to say that fight fans won't recognise the guys in action. It does however do a good impression of a poster for a low level local card, and that is all it really is.
In Okayama on April 3rd fans get a small profile card, dubbed "Momotaro Fight Boxing". The card isn't a major one and it's card doesn't have a lot in terms of big names. What it does have a simple, straight forward poster, with images of a number of the fighters involved on the card, however it's not a brilliant poster if we're being honest.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
