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.
We've got to be honest it's hard to imagine a time when two world ranked domestic fighters get in the ring together and we're not excited but this weekend's Senrima Boxing Festival is one such occasion as Teiru Kinoshita shares the ring with Shingo Wake in a public exhibition bout that is being used to keep Kinoshita sharp.
Unfortunately the Kinoshita/Wake contest is about the only on on this show even mildly interesting and Senrima seem to know it leaving Kinoshita as the key man on the poster
Unfortunately for the poster it's self it looks really cramped down the bottom and misleading at the top with Kinoshita apparently fighting in an 8 rounder. TBH we're not fans of this one at all.

Some shows confuse us a little bit and this Sunday's show in Kobe is one such show. Promoted by Senrima Kobe Promotions, this is, as far as we're aware, the 42nd show that they've done. Unfortunately when translated, literally, into English the show's name is apparently "Chisato horse festival Vol.42".
The main event on the show sees Teiru Kinoshita defending his Japanese national title against Ryuta Otsuka in what is a genuinely interesting contest.
In regards to the poster we're been a little bit confused. Although it's a decent enough poster we do wish it hard some English translations on there for folks like us.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
