We'll admit that we're awaiting for the Korean boxing scene to kick off like it was back in the 1970's and 1980's. We admit it's unlikely we'll get to see any great Korean fighters for the next few years but it's hard not to be excited about this Sunday's title triple header from Chuncheon.
The main event is, as you may have guess, an all female fight as Su Yun Hong (9-0, 5) defends her WBO female Minimumweight title against unbeaten Japanese teenager Mako Yamada (6-0, 2). Amazingly though we also get two Korean title fights on the card as we end up with one of the better looking Korean shows in a very long time.
In regards to the poster, it's not great. It looks very much like an amateur has done it and pales in comparison to the last one that Hong was featured in (which can be seen here) though it does give us TV details, the date and the fighters involved in the main card.
Like a bus, we waited a while for a Korean poster and 2 come along at once.
This one is, at least in our eyes, a much, much better poster than the previous one and, no not just because it's got Min-Wook Kim on the poster.
Kim, the OPBF Light Welterweight champion will be defending his title against Japanese challenger Valentine Hosokawa.
Kim is joined on both the card and poster by WBO female Minimumweight champion Su-Yun Hong. The unbeaten Hong will be looking to defend her WBO title for the second time as she takes on Japan's Mari Ando in a bout that could genuinely outshine the main event.
Our first "poster" from Korea looks like it's come from a screen shot, though unfortunately it's the best we've got.
This is for the upcoming bout for the "interim" WBA Super Featherweight title bout between unbeaten Hyun-Mi Choi (7-0-1, 2) and Japanese challenger Fujin Raika (25-7-1, 10).
It certainly isn't one of our favourite posters so far but in all honesty it's full of information and we oddly think it's doing more to promote the under-card than the main bout. Of course with the language barrier we may be wrong but we can't see any obvious mention of Raika whilst we can see the name of two Thai's who appear to also be on the show.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
