On July 7th 2013 Matsuda Promotions held a show in Aichi. The card wasn't a huge one, though did feature Yuki Sano in what would be his first, and only, bout after facing Naoya Inoue. The poster looks very much like the right type of poster for the level of show, which was very much a second rate domestic one, but it does have some nice touches. Very B rate poster, and sometimes that's good enough!
On September 7th Thai fight fan will have something to look forward to as Teerachai Kratingdaenggym headlines "Super Fight" and takes on Filipino Junjesie Ibgos. The poster for the show sells the event on the two main bouts, but when you consider Teerachai, a 154lb Thai with world level experience, is taking on a former a fighter better suited to Lightweight you can tell the bout isn't going to be up to much. Despite the weak match ups we do like the poster, and it makes the event feel special compared to most other Thai shows.
On July 20th fight fans in Kariya City get a stacked regional type card at the Aioi Hall, featuring some excellent match ups. Among them is a contest between Takuya Mizuno and Roli Gasca, Koshin Takeshima against Jon Jon Estrada and a bout featuring Kento Hatanaka. The poster is a pretty attractive one with an article feel, the local fighters in the center of the poster and a clean solid look to it. A good poster and one we like the look of.
On July 29th fight fans at the Aioi Hall will get the chance to- see a Japanese Super Bantamweight youth title fight, as Takuya Mizuno defends his belt against Jinya Ito. The card also has the notable debut of Koshin Takeshima, who faces Indonesian Jundullah M Fauzan. The poster it's self sells on Mizuno and Takeshima and looks like a pretty neat poster. It's not the most amaing but we do like the general design and the poses fo the fighters on it.
In Mie on Apri 15th fans will see a relatively low key card headlined by the once beaten Tetsu Araki taking on Yuto Nakamura. The card is a pretty low key one, though the poster does a good job in selling the show, and even advertises an appearance from Koki Kameda, which will certainly help bring fans to the show.
On March 25th fight fans in Aichi will get a Matsuda promoted card, headlined by Japanese Youth Super Bantamweight champion Takuya Mizuno defending his title against Daiki Maniwa. The poster for the show is heavily based on that main event and the champion in particular though there is some under-card fighters on the poster and the show does draw some attention to them. It's a simple poster, but one that makes Mizuno look like a star.
On December 10th fight fans in Aichi will get the chance to see the next show in the "SUPER FIGHT" series of cards. The main event here will see Japanese Youth Super Bantamweight champion Takuya Mizuno defending his title against Yuki Iriguchi. The poster for the show is a simple one, and really does put the focus on Mizuno.
On April 23rd fight fans in Aichi will get the chance to see Shota Hayashi defending the Japanese Featherweight title against Kosuke Saka, in what should be a cracking match up. The poster is a bit of a basic one, but the card is an interesting one, with Takuya Mizuno also in a notable bout. The poster makes it clear who the main bouts are and it should be a good card, but the poster could have done with a bit more work if we're being honest.
In Mie this coming Sunday Japanese fans get a low profile card, including the really promising Junto Nakatani. The card isn't a huge one but is an interesting one and should be a fun one for fans. The poster is an interesting one, selling not only on the boxing but also the guest stars for the show. A solid and eye catchign poster.
On Sunday Japanese fight fans have a choice of shows to attend, with one of those being a card in Aichi headlined by the promising Takuya Mizuno, who faces Indonesian visitor Jundullah M Fauzan. The rest of the card is less than notable except for the debut of Kento Hatanaka, the son of former world champion Kiyoshi Hatanaka. The poster does the best it can but with the locak of notable faces it always had an up hill task, and although it tries it's best it certainly doesn't blow us away.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
