Soul Fighting 49
When we talk about the most exciting prospect in Japanese boxing we tend to hear the same answers a lot. Ryota Murata being one of them and Naoya Inoue being another. For us a third name that needs to be considered very highly it Kosei Tanaka. Dubbed the "KO Dream Boy" Tanaka is a fighter who has looked genuinely exceptional through his first 2 fights. He'll be hoping to continue that form in fight #3 as he takes on Crison Omayao, himself a former Naoya Inoue opponent.
From the poster it should be obvious that this show is all about Tanaka. Even without knowing Japanese it's clear they are selling the show on it being his 3rd fight, his first 10 rounder and from just looking at the poster it's clear that this youngster is a big deal. It may seem odd for a poster to be so focused on just one fighter but in this case it makes sense. Tanaka really does have that much expectation on his shoulders.

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