Real Soul Boxing 52
March 16th has two separate Japanese cards. One of those, the more notable of the two, is the "Soul boxing 48" card headline by the highly touted Kosei Tanaka who fights in his second professional contest.
The other show is this one, "Real Soul Boxing 52", which is actually a much bigger card over-all with 9 fights even though it lacks a headline act like Tanaka. Instead this show is headlined by Japanese female fighter Yuko Kuroki who will be fighting Filipino Aisah Alico. The bout, whilst an important one in the Atomweight division is likely to be one that only hardcore fans will take any notice of.
As well as Kuroki/Alico the card also features former Japanese title challenger Yosuke Kirima, who faces a Thai opponent, and the very promising Takumi Sakae.
As for the poster it's a decent enough one and we'll be honest Kuroki's face has been used well to get attention for the show. Although she is talented it's obvious that the shows promoter also knows that she is pretty as well, also a good selling point. It's not a great poster by any stretch but it's also not an awful one.

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