On August 19th we'll be getting the next Kadoebi Show under their "Slugfest" banner, and it's a solid show on paper with a number of really good bouts, such as Ryota Yamauchi facing off with Satoru Todaka and Yuchiro Kasuya battling Masanori Rikishii. The poser breaks down the bouts smartly, with fighters on top or below their opponents, it's clean, it's modern. We like the design and we the card. A good poster for a good show.
On March 27th we get the next card in the Kadoebi promoted "Slugest series. This show, which is just 8 round bouts, will be headlined by the Japanese ring return of Hiroki Okada, who has fought his last 3 bouts in the US. The poster not only features Okada in a prominent place but also other notable fighters, such as Akinori Watanabe, Takuya Kogawa and Cristiano Aoqui. The overall design is a busy one, but it's also a clear one, with a lot on it, but pretty much everything is clear, rather than over-crowded. A solid overall design.
The next Kadoebi card under their "Slugfest" banner comes on February 14th and will see Kadoebi fighter Ryoji Fukunaga take on WBO Asia Pacific Super Flyweight champion Froilan Saludar in the main event, and also feature a number of notable youngsters through the card. The poster really is a nice, clean decision, even the Slugfest logo, which has sometimes been a bit in your face, is nicely tucked in the corner. A very good poster, for an interesting show.
On December 16th OPBF Light Middleweight champion Akinori Watanabe will defend his title in the headline bout of the next Slugfest branded card. The poster for the show features Watanabe, along with what is essentially a bout listing for the show. It's a basic poster, but one that really does push Watanabe as a star. Basic but effective.
On October 21st fight fans in Tokyo will get a rather intriguing card feature a WBO Asia Pacific Flyweight title bout, between Yusuke Sakashita and Naoki Mochizuki and a Japanese title eliminator between Cristiano Aoqui and Daishi Nagata, as well as bouts featuring the likes of Kyotaro Fujimoto. The poster is a good, clean, sharp one. A solid effort.
On August 23rd Kadoebi put on the next Slugfest card, and it's a bit of a doozy, with a main event between OPBF Flyweight champion Jayr Raquinel and former world title champion Takuya Kogawa and a supporting bout between Alphoe Dagayloan and Ryota Yamauchi. The poster really sells those two bouts and although the the under-card isn't as good, those bouts are brilliant and are well worthy of the attention the poster gives them.
On May 8th Kadoebi will be putting on a pretty notable card featuring several notable fighters. The card will be headlined by former IBF Super Bantamweight champion Yukinori Oguni, with supporting bouts from former Japanese and OPBF champion Takuya Kogawa and former Japanese champion Takenori Ohashi. It's those 3 men that are on the poster in what looks like a simple but effective design that clearly sells on it's champions.
On December 1st in Tokyo we get the next show from Kadoebi, and the next in the Dynamic Glove shows. The main event will see Japanese Light Welterweight champion Valentine Hosokawa defending his title against Takashi Inagaki whilst the supporting bouts will include the return of former world champion Yukinori Oguni. It's a simple poster, but one that works well for this show and matches up with previous "Slugfest" posters.
To kick off the month of October we get a stacked Kadoebi card, with a really solid looking poster. The main event of the card will see former Japanese Featherweight champion Takenori Ohashi take on Ruito Saeki, whilst the under-card is stacked with prospects like Kazuki Saito, Ryota Yamauchi and the debuting Yuki Nakajima. The poster is, like other Slugfest posters, a very simple one but a pretty effective one with a basic yet interesting design.
On July 9th we'll get the next in the Kadoebi promoted "Slugfest" cards, with this one being promoted heavily on the fact it will be the final bout in the career of Daisuke Sakamoto, as he takes on Koki Koshikawa in an 8 rounder. Others on the card include Kazuki Saito, who faces Thai foe Pharanpetch Tor Buamas, and Shoma Fukumoto. The poster is pretty strong one, with a great and strong central image and good, clear, supporting images. A solid yet unspectacular effort.
