On April 29th we get the next card from Senrima Kobe Promotions, and sadly it's a bit of a weak one, with very little to get excited about. Credit, however, goes to the promoter for trying to make the show look busy and bustling by including 9 fighters on the poster. It's a busy poster, and it's one that does the best it can with what it has...but still isn't a very good one. We're not a fan of this if we're being honest.
On August 14th fight fans in Kobe will be getting a show from Senrima Kobe Promotions. The card isn't one of their strongest but looking at it on paper it's a fairly busy show with 8 bouts pencilled it for the event. Those pencilled in for this show include the very talented Yuga Inoue and Ryosuke Nasu. The poster is busy but it does list the bouts and looks fairly solid for a rather basic local card.
In mid-April we'll see the next card put on by the Kobe based Senrima gym. The poster, like many from the gym, uses a design with an almost split design, featuring the fighters at the top of the poster and a lot of text details at the bottom. It's not something amazing, but isn't actually a bad poster either. We're not fan of the design, but it clear works and sells the events to the local fan base. Simple, but seemingly rather effective.
On December 7th we get the next show under the Senrima Kobe "Super Fight" series, headlined by Ryoki Hirai. The poster does have a little too much text at the bottom for our liking, but overall it's not a bad poster, making it clear who the stars for the show are, as well as a bout list. It's solid without breaking any new ground.
Looking way ahead to August 11th, we'll be getting the next show from Senrima Kobe, with the show being headlined by Ryoki Hirai. The poster has the typical design of a Pegasus Super Fight poster, which is decent without being amazing. It's got plenty of information on the poster, with the bout listing, the date, time and venue. The only real major issue is the darkness in the top corner, but if we're being that's a minor complaint to a solid enough poster.
On April 21st Japanese fight fans in Kobe will get the next show from Senrima Kobe, which features Ryoki Hirai and Giraffe Kirin Kanda among others. The poster has a typical Pegasus Super Fight poster with the fighters on the post and the bout list. It's nothing original but really does make Hirai look like a big star.
On December 9th we'll get the next Pegasus Super Fight show, headlined by Giraffe Kirin Kanda. The poster pushes Kanda like a star, but the reality is that the poster isn't very exciting and is rather weirdly done in regards to the layers on the image...a less than great poster.
On August 12th we'll get the next card under the Pegasus Super Fight series of shows. The card, headlined by recent Japanese title contender Ryoki Hirai, also features fighters like Giraffe Kirin Kanda and Kazuya Murata. The design for the poster is half decent, having both colour and details on it, but it certainly wouldn't be considered one of our favourite posters of 2018.
On April 22nd we'll get "Pegasus Super Fight Vol 22". The show has it's own full show poster, but the card also has this promotional poster to advertise the main event, or rather the fact that Ryoki Hirai will be in the main event, as he fights Shin Ono for the Japanese Minimumweight title. The poster is a pretty basic design but one we rather like and it's always nice to see when these types of things are done along side the official show posters.
On April 22nd fight fans in Kobe will get the chance to see a Japanese Minimumweight title fight, as Ryoki Hirai and Shin Ono battle for the title vacated by Reiya Konishi earlier this year. The poster features not only the main event but a lot of the under-card too, including 2-time world title challenger Teiru Kinoshita, who is probably the most recognisable man on the poster for international fight fans. Its a busy poster, but not a bad one by any stretch of the imagination.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
