On July 10th we'll be getting the next show under the Splendid Boxing!! banner, and unlike in the series this event will be an all 4 rounder even, rather than a more standard show with a mix of bouts across various levels of the show. As a result of the way this card is planned, the poster lists all the bouts on it, and doesn't try to sell the event on the specific fighters. We love 4 round shots, they are typically exciting and fun to watch, and it's nice to see when promoters push that aspect of the show, rather than who's going to be on it.
SPLENDID BOXING (28.11.2021)
On November 28th we get the next show from Yakushiji promotions and it'll be a 10 bout show in Aichi prefecture. Given the show will feature a staggering 20 fighters there's not really much of a surprise that the poster has a lot of fighters featured on it. Sadly though it lacks a star for the poster to be built around and instead it looks over-crowded and over busy.
On March 21st we get the next show under the "Splendid Boxing!!" banner, being held at the Aioi Hall. The poster looks rather trippy with swirling colours and a handful of the fighters involved on the show. It's certainly not a great poster, there is something eye catching, especially with the background. Just a shame the text is a little bit jarring and the poster looks like it's not used the space particularly well.
Every so often we get a poster we can't warm to and sadly this is one such case. The November 2020 "Splendid Boxing!!" poster just looks dull, unimaginative and half assed, with a lot off empty space. It's not "bad" but it feels incomplete, and like there is still work to do on it to use up some of the free space left on the poster. A very underwhelming poster.
On March 29th in Kariya fight fans will be getting a Central Japan Rookie of the Year card, which will also feature the always fun to watch Ryosuke Maruki. The poster is trying to sell the show hard on Maruki, but does feature quite a nice design overall. It's nothing amazing, but we do like the colour scheme and the overall design isn't too bad.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
