On November 24th fight fans in Cebu City will get the next Pinoy Pride card, a triple header with 3 WBO affiliate titles on it. The bouts include Albert Pagara taking on George Krampah, Jeo Santisima facing Victor Lopez and KJ Cataraja fighting Hugo Reyes. The poster, and other promotional images, feature all 3 bouts and try to sell the show as a triple header. A solid effort in terms of the idea behind it, but the poster it's self does look a tad dull and unimaginative.
This coming Saturday Filipino fight fans will see the fast rising Mark Magsayo take on former Japanese Featherweight champion Shota Hayashi, in what looks like a really interesting match up. The poster for the bout is a simple one and sells the bout clearly, without doing too much. It's simple but effective.
On September 16th attention turns to the Philippines, at least for a part of the day, as IBF Light Flyweight champion Milan Melindo looks to make his first defense of the title, and takes on South African Hekkie Budler in a very good looking match up. The bout, which headlines Pinoy Pride 42, is used as the selling point of the show,and it really does look set to be a fantastic bout. The poster features the two fighters and some general details about the show, and whilst it's not the best poster ever, it's certainly not a terrible one.
This coming weekend Filipino fight fans get a treat as anumber of top local prospects are in action. These including the unbeaten Mark Magsayo, wo headlines, as well as Jeo Santisima, Albert Pagara, Melvin Jerusalem and Kevin Jake Cataraja. The poster does well in selling the show as a prospect show, but does so in a way that makes it seem like the three stand out bouts are compeitive, and not mismatches. The poster is exciting and the show does seem to be something to get excited about.
This coming weekend Filipino fans get the next in the Pinoy Pride series of shows, in fact it's the 40th in the long running ALA promoted card. The poster for the show is a basic one, with the main event fighters Donnie Nietes and Eaktwan BTU Ruaviking featuring on the promotional banner for the card. The poster is basic but sells the show on it's intriguing main event.
Next weekend attention turns to the Philippines for the next Pinoy Pride card, which will be headlined by am IBF Light Flyweight "interim" world title fight between Milan Melindo and Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr. The poster is a simple one but a very infortmative one with a lot of information regarding the who, where and when. Despite the information there us a bit of a feel that the background could have been spruced up and more colour could have helped here.
This weekend US fans get a chance to see a pair of Filipino brothers in action with Albert Pagara and older brother Jason Pagara both in notable bouts on the latest "Pinoy Pride" card. Of the two brothers it's Albert who is in the main event, facing off against the tough as old boots Cesar Juarez in what should be a genuien test for the Filipino youngster, who could see a win launch him towards a world title fight at the end of the year. The poster sells the show completely on that one bout, and with good reason as it's a genuinely cracking bout.
This coming weekend is a big one for young Filipino fighters with a number of really talented youngsters in action in Cebu City. Among those promising are Super Bantamweight sensation Albert Pagara and the very talented Mark Magsayo, who are both featured on the poster. The poster features plenty of details of the card and although it could have done with listing some of the under-card it is a very solid effort from ALA.
On Saturday ALA make their American debut as they take their massively popular "Pinoy Pride" franchise over to the US and showcase some of the best talent that the Philippines have to offer, including Donnie Nietes and Albert Pagara.
The poster for the card is an interesting one, featuring the 4 notable Filipino fighters as well as Nietes's Mexican foe whilst also including a representation of the venue, the Stubhub Center. It's an interesting poster even if it's bot an amazing one.
One of 3 major shows with an Asian interest this coming Friday will come in Dubai as ALA Gym return to Dubai to showcase some of their most promising fighters, including Albert Pagara, his brother Jason Pagara and veteran Jimrex Jaca. The card, which isn't the best ALA show of the year, is a solid looking showcase for some fighters who are likely to get bigger fighters in the near future.
The poster is actually one of our favourites with a sharp and crisp look to it. It features a list of the bouts along with images of the 4 main fighters and the name, show, date and venue of the card. It has the details and the style so well done to ALA for getting this one right.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
