This coming Friday will see the return to the ring for OPBF Super Middleweight champion Yuzo Kiyota. Originally Kiyota was set to defend his OPBF title though unfortunately a failure to secure a credible opponent has seen his fight revert to a non-title bout.
Despite the fight being downgraded the poster wasn't really changed and if someone saw the poster they would still be expecting a title fight which is a bit misleading, in the defence of Flash Akbane however this was less their fault and more an issue with the opponents who didn't want to get in the ring with Kiyota. Despite that issue we do still like the poster which is sharp and snappy and very clear to look out with a striking visual of Kiyota.
If it wasn't for the "out of date" issues this would be a top class poster.

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